Alexander the Great is, in my opinion, the greatest military commander of all time. That opinion was shared by many of the great commanders from throughout history. Moreover, he is the measuring stick by which all others are judged.
 
Here are some great Macedonian troops I recently acquired from Dean Motoyama, who is based in my old "homeland" of South Korea.
 
To see more off Dean's workmanship you may like to check out his website:
 
 
 
I'm still deciding on a rule set to use with large numers of ancient figures (WRG, Warhammer Ancient Battles, etc) but for smaller sized armies I will definitely use DBA. I aim to build a DBA army for every army in the DBA Army List that is of interest to me.
