Thread: Indo Greek Phalanx

  1. #1

    Default Indo Greek Phalanx

    I heard before that the Indo-Greeks still used the Macedonian phalanx, and that the EB had considered to make such a unit for EB, but it was canceled due to model limit.
    Has anyone actually made the unit and still have it? I would like to add it to ALXEB.

    Reform unit, as it were. Got the same treatment as the Iphikrateans, ie. lost the phalanx special formation (and is currently under soldier-radius experimentation by your truly).
    "Let us remember that there are multiple theories of Intelligent Design. I and many others around the world are of the strong belief that the universe was created by a Flying Spaghetti Monster. --- Proof of the existence of the FSM, if needed, can be found in the recent uptick of global warming, earthquakes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters. Apparently His Pastaness is to be worshipped in full pirate regalia. The decline in worldwide pirate population over the past 200 years directly corresponds with the increase in global temperature. Here is a graph to illustrate the point."

    There was an "Indo-Hellenic Pezhetairoi" planned a long time ago but was dropped due to them being rare and other units being more important. I'm not sure there was a whole lot of sarrisa phalanx action in India, but the tactic did make it there.

    I don't think that unit ever got passed the "lets maybe consider doing something like that someday in the future" stage.
