Playing a bit fast and loose with the descriptor ‘DBA’ here, of no consequence to me as I only game ‘in house’. v2.2 (wot I use) army list gives:
b) 766 - 1172 AD: 1x3Cv (Gen), 1x3Cv, 2x2LH, 2x4Sp, 6x2Ps.
Which is fair enough but has no missile troops. So I went to DBM 2nd edition army lists, applied DBR condensed thing and got: 1x3Cv (Gen), 1x3Cv, 2x2LH, 2x4Sp, 1x4Bw, 1x4Bw(Cb), 4x2Ps with 1x2Cv left over.
General and Heavy Cavalry (1x3Cv + 1x2Cv);
Light Cavalry (2x2LH);
Heavy Infantry (2x4Sp);
Bows (1x4Bw and 1x4Cb);
Light Infantry (4x2Ps).
Scaling is a bit odd, the cavalry being noticeably bigger than the infantry. However I like these figures and am pleased with how they turned out; looking forward to doing the others. It’s a shame the El Cid range was never completed in 28mm.
I didn’t buy complete boxes, ordered the exact number of sprues I needed direct from HaT themselves (amazing service BTW). The same for another couple of DBAs. This was done rather than have lots of left over figures I would likely never use. Economically all round it worked out less than the complete boxes.
