    Default Thureophoroi

    Ok, what are they?

    From what I get from my miniatures, they appear to be skirmishers who threw javelins, but could double as light infantry in a pinch.

    But someone on EB said that they were a Celtic inspiration, so could they have fought with longswords as shock infantry as well, or did they do the above, or did they do both?

    This is the first part if you are interested in Iphikrates and his reforms.

    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
    -- John Stewart Mills

    But from the absolute will of an entire people there is no appeal, no redemption, no refuge but treason.
