Now use the phalanx in battle as never before! With brand new animations, textures helmets and weapons the phalanx really does come to life!
The two most effective armies in the ancient world were the Roman army, and the Macedonian army under Alexander the Great. The Macedonian Army was based on the phalanx, where a box of men eight men deep stood with long spears and shields against the foe. Well disciplined formations are extremely hard to break, and there are few instances in history where the phalanx was actually broken.
On the field the Pezhetairoi are excellent at combating cavalry, and adept at conquering infantry. Though don't put them in range of enemy archers! Available in age 3 to all gods of the Greek civilization as the walking pezhetairoi, you can transform it into a melee pezhetairoi when the enemy is close by!
The melee pezhetairoi is now able to move at a reasonable speed, in addition it is highly resistand to melee attacks, though it will be crushed under the arrows of the enemy. The walking pezhetairoi is now able to attack, though if it is combating anything but cavalry it has very little effect, it's two main advantages are that it it highly resistant to archer fire and it can move large distances at speed, it cannot however stand up to melee attacks.
Dec 17/08- Shield bug in walking phalangites fixed
The model's are really pretty, and so are the textures, and the icon The active animation seems to be running on the ground, the legs moving to fast for it.
Also, I'm not sure if it's my computer or not, but the name's arn't appearing, nor are any data in the history panel, except the explanation at the bottom.
You did well, but it could have used slightly more planning.

Now that it isn't horribly slow when in combat mode this is a much better. Changing it between walking and melee isn't really a problem anymore. Don't see any problems with it now. The history is interesting too.
It's fun to play as Posiedon(spelling?) and combine these with the Hetairoi:)
If anyone is confused I had an old review here before but changed it after 2.0 came out.

Sincerelly, one of the best mods in Age of Mythology Heaven. The textures are exquisite, their spears, their arnor, their shields: completely magnificent. They look impresionant wen walking. Only something failed: they are so weak, they are no strong.
But sincerelly this deserves a 5.
