El CId Army

Got an Email from Mick a couple of days ago, inviting a few of us up in March for an Ancients weekend. I think the Saturday will be a large DBA variant game of Greek Hoplites either against each other or Persians. The Sunday will be a large WAB El Cid game and I've been asked to bring along my figures. Well this gave me a chance to check through the army to remind me what I had. It's been a couple of years since I've used these.

The total force comprises of 102 mounted figures split 60/40% between heavies and lights. The infantry is made up of 158 heavy (including African mercenaries.) and 110 lights including slingers, bowmen, javelins and crossbows. Since the figures were out I couldn't help but take a couple of photos.
