Macedonian Phalanx



I found this picture of some Macedonian Phalanx, formed up and ready to receive the enemy. I thought it may be of use to those painting some at the minute. I'd guess they were early Macedonians because of the unusual mix of helmets - not seen that before!

I suppose they used armour captured from their enemies - much as the Gauls did - hence the varied look.

They're perhaps mercenaries? That could explain the varied look - coming from different parts/backgrounds.
