Continuing on from my Seleucid settler phalanx I have now finished the Silver Shield phalanx using the same Newline Designs 20mm "African Pikemen" from their Carthaginian range with Macedonian command figures.

King Antiochus III has spared no expense, purple tunics for all! X-D

Newlines really are good, aren't they?

Cracking as always Tone.

Very fine indeed. The silvering is particularly effective. Good to see phalangites attacking rather than just standing around with pikes up!

Splendid work.

Indeed when Hannibal was asked by Antiochus what the Romans would think of his troops, Hannibal was supposed to have replied to the effect:
They are going to love these – because of all the wealth the Seleucid troops were wearing.

Really nice and effective looking troops.
