SHL2a Macedonian or Successor Phalangites, 6 deep strip (3mm)
This pack of 3mm figures contains sixty strips of Macedonian or Successor phalangites. Each strip is six men deep. The front row have spear level, the second and third row have their sarissa at an angle and other ranks have theirs upright.
The Macedonian and Successor phalanx acted as the anvil on which the companion cavalry could break the enemy. While the phalanx is unwieldy it is extremely hard to break from the front. It took flank and or rear attacks or indeed another phalanx to break them.
