Gerry hope that is understandable. This is the sort of list I would start with if I was doing Hanibal in Italy. You could drop the ellie and have Hanibal and most probably either add another skirmish unit or beef up the open order units a bit. You have 5 good units that can stand in the main battle line if need be, two of those have open order to allow for terrain some reasonable if not spectacular cavalry.

Not used an ellie yet so not sure how good/bad/fun they are. I could do this with little change to a pre-existing army set up for WAB.

Do African Inf have to take the full 10pt upgrade or can they just be upgraded to Vets for 2 pts ?

I think it is the full 10 point upgrade or nothing, don't think you can pick'n'mix, but I have been known to be wrong about these things!
