    HBO Rome is very Historical so I do think they did. Though their shields seem very weak, with gladius and arrows piercing it quite easilly, or were they really that weak(or did most shields had that problem)?

    And that 300 last stand video, those are great, somewhat a more Historical version of 300 .

    Though I rather would've liked to see Gates of Fire as a movie then 300 .

    HBO is only relatively historically accurate. It is still filled with errors, though.

    Alexander has an awesome helmet in this movie. Would be nice to have for Macedon generals in EB2.

    .
    I've seen on the forums (but have never read, personally) a quote from an ancient source regarding the battle of Carrhae, saying that the arrows from the Parthians' bows nailed the legionaries' hands to their shields. I imagine a straight shot from most bows would pierce, though not necessarily to a great depth, most shields. Fortunately I have no experience defending myself from arrows with a shield, so I can't say for sure Polybius described the scutum as having the thickness of a human hand at the edge (Histories, 6.23), so one would probably have to attack pretty vigorously to penetrate it with a sword.
