The Agema Phalangiton are elite heavy pikemen unique to the Macedonians. They are very well armoured, having reinforced scale linothorakes or breastplates in addition to greaves, plumed helmets and shields. Also, their sarissa pikes will inflict heavy damage on any unit that dares to attack them, especially when they are arranged in formation. They are expensive and take a long time to train, but the professionalism and effectiveness of these soldiers makes it well worth it.


Historically, the Agema Phalangiton were members of the Macedonian royal guard under the Antigonid kings. They were well-trained and hardened veterans, having already served as Basilikoi Peltastai.


Although being macedonian unit the model of the Agema Phalangiton is actually based on reconstruction of seleucid phalangite from II century BC.
