I/25 c and d Koreans DBA-RRR

Finished!!, This is a combination of the DBA base Yi Koreans and the I/25c and d Koreans from DBA-RRR. I did not paint all the options available but painted what I thought I might use at some point.
Some of the flags used photographed in the Korean War Museum.
My additional ART piece. Not completely happy with the construction of the model but I think it gets the job done. I figured since the other Korean ART had a flag this one needed one too. I utilized two guerrilla figures to form the crew since OG does not make any.
The General 'O' and the other LH and PS options.
Three more Pk options giving the army a total of five.
Two 5Wb and the only Bd available.
The last two elements I painted. These are from the Ming line of OG. I used them for the Korean shot because they were available and the Koreans were greatly influenced by the Chinese during this period.

'O' the Korean General

'O', the Proud and fearless (so far, he has not had to fight) leader of the DBA-RRR Choson Koreans. His army awaits.

IV/78 Yi 'Choson' Koreans

The pictures of the flags are from the Korean War Museum in Seoul. I was excited to use designs from what I had seen. In the DBA-RRR army mod more of the flag designs were used.
I finished the last stands for the Yi Koreans last night. I have been delayed completing the army because I got stuck on the three Cv elements. When stuck, I put things away and work on something else like the Gauls and Alexander and usually find myself coming back to it after awhile. The Old Glory figures used in this army are absolutely the best OG have out! Crisp, clean and with a variety of poses per pack. You might notice the labels on the stands, I am tracking kills for each stand in DBA-RRR and this is the base army for my I/25 Korean list 'Choson' Renaissance army soon to be posted.
The trouble makers....I chose the General with the fan so that he would stand out from the rest of the formation. The figure variation was great for the Cv.
The LH, enough said!:)
The foot, the army has a splattering of different troop types. The colors were influenced by Perry miniatures home page.
The Hd and the ART were alot of fun to put together. I looked at the ART as Chinese rocketeers. Of course they needed a flag to wave around so that the enemy could honorably fire back, right?

II/12 Alexandrian Macedonians

Here is the mod for my Later Macedonians to morph into Alex's army. The Pk, Ax, and Lh are the same from the other army
I wanted Alex to have a standard to make him stand out a little from the Cv.
Alex's Ps. Alex's Ps have a the broad brimmed hats vs. the later Macedonians
His Artillery piece.

IV/42 Islamic Persians

Ahhh, The Persians are finally completed!! For someone that does not like to play with Cv, Eight is quite enough. I purchased these Essex from a DBA 1.1 army pack back in Nashville at a discount. This is the last one of those 50% off armies I bought back then, thank goodness. Much like the Gauls, I have begun, stopped, stripped, and repainted this army more then once. I just finally said to my self, " paint them or throw them away" So I painted them.
The General and his staff....and of course the Lh.
The first four Cv stands. I originally wanted this army to be drab with browns, greens, and grays...I obviously did not like how that turned out.
The other three
The Hd and the two Bw. These have been painted for almost four months starring at me to finish the mounted. It was one of my failed inspirational attempt to kick start my butt into painting the army. I failed until recently.
