    It always bothered me that the hypaspist included in the vanilla civ was so under equiped. They were supposed to be the elite of the Macedonian battlelines for pitty's sake! If they had no armor it doesnt matter how good you are, aint gonna last long in a heavy battle. So with this in mind I reskinned the hypaspist with a heavier iron curiass. Hope you all enjoy :D
    Some sceenies for you all to wet your apetite! :goodjob:

    Yea, I am about to start a spearman version as they were also known to use spears in battle. They didnt use them like the greeks in a phalanx formation, instead they use an over head grip kindda like u would throw a javalin.;) I hope to have it ready soon :mischief:

    Here we go, as I stated in an earlier post, I have completed a Hypaspist Spearman. In classical Macedon around the time of Alexander the hypaspist fought with both spears and swords. While fraxis have not included a spearman version of the orginial sword version of this unit I have created one from the spearman unit.

    Here are some screen shots for you all :D

    How about putting a Macedonian emblem on the shield?

    For the rest, good details on the harness. :goodjob:
