Choosing a great-looking DBx 6mm army

You've decided to go into 6mm DBx gaming because the visuals are great. What do you need to think about when choosing armies?

Examples of 6mm armies

Some of my 6mm armies:

Nikephorean Byzantine is a good-looking army with an interesting history.

Classical Indian is a great-looking, effective army.

Later Achaemenid Persian - pics and a short description.

Alexander the Great's armies - pics and a short description (this army is owned by Hans Kristian Toft).

Early and Later Carthaginian armies are effective armies with an interesting history.
