    Several very good ones. The crossing gets my vote.

    I was torn between 1 and 6. "Sunset Slaughter" looks great with all those really bold colours, while "Lines Colide" takes the epic approach. I'm voting for the former though. I'm beginning to find Phalanx screenies a tad' repetative.
    When Adam delved and Eve span, Who was then the gentleman? From the beginning all men by nature were created alike, and our bondage or servitude came in by the unjust oppression of naughty men. For if God would have had any bondsmen from the beginning, he would have appointed who should be bound, and who free. And therefore I exhort you to consider that now the time is come, appointed to us by God, in which ye may (if ye will) cast off the yoke of bondage, and recover liberty. - John Ball

    Don't worry, the title is grammatically correct. Foot just doesn't like you calling Parthians Persian.

    Edit: I probably voted for my defeat, but number four "Clash Of The Titans" got my vote. Comes from my childhood fascination (a total lie) of Hypaspists.

    I like the epic feel of "Lines collide"...and we haven't had many Hai shots. And to think, that shot almost wasn't submitted!

    What's the hangup that so many have on phalanx action? I guess I'm biased towards skillful manipulation as I like 3 and 9 best, then 8. Clash of the titans is way too bright for me.

    I hope people like the 'epic' feel next month, because my next submission is moderately epic....unless I find something better in the mean time.

    I voted for mine, but I liked "Lines Collide" just as well. Good shot.

    I like pure, unaltered shots, so I voted for 7. I thought that was the prettiest.

    Just like Obelics posted already in the submission threads: usually I don't like the editing (over-done) but this time it really captured something with screen 3. It gets my vote.

    My advice towards editing screens would be "tread with caution, or don't tread at all", because many times the editing will be a picture's downfall (at least in my eyes). But sometimes you just get it right. "The Crossing" is one of those times, and it has earned my vote.

    I voted 2, nice simple theme we all know, and not too much edited. The crossing and lines collide were also very nice!

    I voted 3, but I suggest next month there could be 2 categories : edited or unedited screens, as this month is going to be an award to the best Photoshop user. And taking the roght shot at the right moment is another talent.

    "The crossing" is just beautiful. The dark clouds gathering over the silent crossing. The tragedy just drips from the screen. It got my vote.

    It was a tough for me between 'The Crossing' and 'Lines Collide', but I eventually chose the latter.

    I just love seeing infantry try to break through a phalanx from the front, and with the slight elevation advantage for Makedon it looks like it was going to be pretty bloody for the Hayasdan

    I went for 1. Personally I dislike heavily edited shots, and 1 really captures the feel of a big battle going on, showing the group of Romans fighting for their lives with reinforcements on the way, beneath a sky filled with fire. Plus, I love the colours, and even don't mind the banners for once.

    Very good pics guys! Screen four wins my vote by a slim margin.

    I've got loads of good screenies that I've posted elsewhere, some editted with p-shop and some left as they are. Perhaps I'll enter one next month?
