Korean armies for DBA

I bought enough miniatures from Khurasan to make all possible Korean armies for DBA 3.0. Below you can see almost all the miniatures painted and then gathered according to the different armies.


II/75 Paekche & Kaya Korean
1 General (Cv or 4Kn), 1 cavalry (Cv or 4Kn), 1 cavalry (Cv), 4 Spearmen (3Pk), 4 archers (3Bw), 1 archers (Ps).


II/76 Koguryo Korean
1 General (4Kn), 1 Cataphracts (4Kn), 1 Son Bae (3Kn or 4Kn) or horse archers (LH), 1 Malgal horse archers (LH), 1 armoured archers (4Bw), 2 long-spearmen (4Pk) or militia (3Pk), 2 militia archers (3Bw), 1 Malgal or other archers (Ps or 3Bw).
LH is Chinese because the beautiful Malgal archers came in blisters of twelve but Chinese in four and I only needed two riders.


II/77a Shilla Korean
1 General and Chong (Cv or 4Kn), 1 hwarang (3kn or LH), 1 Cavalry (Cv), 4 spearmen (3Pk), 1 crossbowmen (4Cb), 3 archers (3Bs), 1 archers (Ps).
Here I'm using heavy archers as crossbowmen because Khurasan sells them in packs of twelve and I only needed four so I did not buy them.


II/77b Shilla Korean
1 General and Chong (Cv or 4Kn), 1 hwarang (3Kn or LH), 1 cavalry (Cv), 2 spearmen (3Pk), 1 crossbowmen (4Cb), 3 archers (3Bw), 2 red banners spearmen (4Pk), 1 archers (Ps).


III/57 Koryo Dinasty Korean
1 General (Cv), 1 armoured cavalry with lance & bow (Cv), 1 horse archers (LH), 4 spearmen (4Bw), 4 archers (4Bw), 1 guerrillas (3Pk) or archers (Ps).
For this army I needed four more heavy pikemen but again; blisters come in twelves and I was not going to buy it for just four of them.

Khurasan miniatures are are nice and quite unique although a bit pricey. A pity they do not sell DBA armies.

    1. It was an easy army to paint as most horses are armoured and infantry has no shields to paint, but all in all I'm satisfied with the result as now I can play them, which is the most important thing for me as wargamer.
      Cheers Jay!
