    Hello all. Here's one of my latest Units going into Ionut's Civilizations 3.13. It is a classical Makdonian Levee Pike Phalanx. These units would be drafted into service by local lords. Generally these men would be from the local peoples ( unlike the Pezhetairoi who were made up of only Greek and Makedonians). They were generally less reliable and were prone to rebellion and discontent, however examples of these men can be found all over the ancient world.

    Thanks. Its good to give some idea of what the unit is based on, what they did, helps people to understand the way they would have been equipped, and fought. And before anyone asks no they are not for a Macedonian Civ. ( I have something really special in mind for them;) )
