    Default ●●●●●PTW : SW - 2nd Preview: Hoplite units ●●●●●


    Today I introduce to you some of the standard Greek hoplite units that will appear in The Sicilian Wars. Bare in mind that all of the units shown here will in fact be effectively AOR units and that therefore, anybody who controls the city they derive from will be able to recruit them. Alongside having a standard hoplite unit, each Greek city will also have an elite hoplite (Hippeis) counterpart available to recruit.

    All of the units in this preview are made from models from a unit pack by Dark_Fenrir, and all have been reskinned by your truly (cpdwane).

    a very good panoply of units...

    In parte operis mei licet mihi praefari, bellum maxime omnium memorabile quae unquam gesta sint me scripturum, quod Hannibale duce Carthaginienses cum populo Romano gessere. Nam neque ualidiores opibus ullae inter se ciuitates gentesque contulerunt arma neque his ipsis tantum unquam uirium aut roboris fuit.

    This is set in Sicily remember. The Sacred Band came from Thebes, which is on the Greek mainland. In any case, this mod is set well before the Scared Band was created.

    I think he means the carthaginian Sacred Band

    Note that it says somewhere in this preview that these are Greek hoplites, the Sacred Band was most probably a hoplite phalanx, but they weren't Greeks. Hopefully we'll get a Carthaginian preview soon, but I guess that the team will use those that are being used by the PTW team.

    Oops. I'm a bit of a plonker sometimes!

    Yeah, the Punic Sacred Band will be in the mod alright. I'm not sure which model we will use yet though.
