    Some interesting unit ideas, though I am a bit sceptic about the Helvetic Phalanxwarriors, as according to Commentarii De Bello Gallico the Helvetii fought a lot against the Germanic tribes, so I would (personally at least) give them more Germanic influences than Hellenic

    Caesar described in De Bello Gallico, that the Helvetii fight in a disciplined phalanx:

    De Bello Gallico 1, 24, 4/5:

    (4) Helvetii cum omnibus suis carris secuti impedimenta in unum locum contulerunt; (5) ipsi confertissima acie reiecto nostro equitatu phalange facta sub primam nostram aciem successerunt.

    But the phalanx or fighting in a closed phalanx like formation is not a greek invention, already the old Sumerians used it.

    The earliest known depiction of a phalanx-like formation occurs in a Sumerian stele from the 25th century BC. Here the troops seem to have been equipped with spears, helmets, and large shields covering the whole body. Ancient Egyptian infantry were known to have employed similar formations.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phalanx


    I would' nt give the Helvetii germanic influenced units, as the celts were quite more cultural advanced than the germanic tribes. On contrary the germanic tribes took many things like the clay pottery wheel from the celts. The celtic armour and weapons were far superior than the germanic weapons and armours.

    So i have given westgermanic tribes in a unreleased germanic mod some plundered or traded celtic armour.

    Wow, well you got me there, I don't rememember this part from the de Bello Gallico, so fair play to you
    Regarding the phalanx, we Greeks weren't the only ones fighting in such tight formations, there have been many similar ones throughout history indeed as you say, though I believe that the Romans used the term phalanx to describe rectangular formations in general, way less implicitly than the Greeks did(I even think that the Romans called some Germanic formations as phalanxes, correct me if I am wrong there)

    My point for the germanic influences is that generally during the co-existance of various cultures/groups, they often tend to influence each other to an extent, and because the Helvetii often fought against germanic tribes they could have influenced e.g. their tactics a bit

    So i have changed the name to "Helvetic Heavy Spear Warriors", "which fight in a helvetic phalanx" to prevent missunderstandings for the future.

    From "De Bello Gallico" i know, the Sequani and Arverni used Ariovist's Suebi as mercenaries against the Haedui.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Magetobriga

    So i added nemetian mercenaries in "Gallia Transalpina".

    But its possible that Celts adapt germanic tactics.
