SUCCESSOR PHALANGITES: Victrix 28mm Plastic Miniatures
Successor Phalangites in most aspects looked very much like the earlier Macedonian Phalangites. The only real difference in appearance would have been helmet styles, there will have been a greater variety of styles as the period stretched from the 4th to the 2nd century with many changes in fashion. We have included a great variety of helmets in the Successor set as well as extending the choice of crests allowing customers many many head variants.
The other option included in the set is the addition of separate legs in trousers. These are to represent Eastern Phalangites of Persian and Eastern descent. Before Alexanders death he had raised a corps of 30,000 young Asiatics trained in the Macedonian style (usually meaning as Phalangites) called epigonoi (Inheritors). These may well have formed the nucleus of the Eastern looking Phalanx used by the Seleucids. Finally the Phalanx used by Mithradates of Pontus may well have looked like this.
This set contains 24 Successor Phalangite pikemen infantry and 3 command.
