Nice looking Greeks!

I hadn't realized the Macedonian version of Saga had so many armies (probably too busy with my Vikings!). I'll have to go on a quest to confirm there are really battle boards for Numidians, Gauls, and Ancient Indians, as well as all the others. I actually have a lot of these armies and would love an excuse to add more!

Sarissa shooting mechanism ? If I was armed with a sarissa I would want to hang onto it for as long as possible !!

Grelber – all those boards do exist – Numidians and Guals in Hannibal the others in Alexander.
Dagwood – the sarissa do not actually shoot they have a reach that follows the shooting rules but only for 1 use a turn.
