    1616   * '''Class:''' Spearman.
    1717   * '''Hacker Armament:''' Long Macedonian pike, the "sarissa".
    1818   * '''Appearance:'''
    19      * '''Basic:''' "Rear ranker". Simple tunic. No armour or greaves. Basic pilos helmet. Round Macedonian pelta.

    21      * '''Elite:''' "Front ranker". Bronze muscled cuirass (with leather pteruges) and bronze greaves. Closed faced, feathered, plumed, and/or crested Phrygian helmets. Round Macedonian pelta.
    22    * '''History:''' The Pezhetairoi were the backbone of the Macedonian army, much like the Hoplites were for the Hellenes. What makes the Pezhetairoi different is their use of a two-handed 18 foot (6 meter) pike and their massed "syntagma" formation, a variation on the Greek Phalanx borrowed from the Thebans. The Pezhetairos is a professional, making him one of the strongest spearmen in the game.

     20     * '''Advanced:''' "Mid Ranker". Quilted linen armor (no pteruges) and no greaves. Open-faced quilted linen cap. Round Macedonian pelta.

     22   * '''History:''' When pressed hard by the fellow successor states, the Ptolemies of Egypt began to arm and train the Egyptian people in "Macedonian fashion." These levies of indigenous Egyptians were crucial in turning back the Seleucid tide at the Battle of Raphia, cementing nationalist pride and threatening the rule of the Ptolemies over their own kingdom.

In this, the Rhodian Sphendonêtês excelled brilliantly.

    61    * '''History:''' Mercenary archers from the big island of Crete. They were widely regarded as the best archers in all of Hellas and had a long tradition of hiring themselves out to Hellenic states such as Athens for use aboard Triremes naval vessels. Alexander hired them to accompany him on his world conquest march and while in his service they dueled admirably with the greatly feared eastern archers.
