The Hippeis Thessalikoi are heavy shock cavalry. They can inflict much damage thanks to their powerful xyston lance, and they wear heavy armour including a reinforced linothorax or breastplate and a Boeotian or Konos type helmet. However they lack staying power in a melee due to their relatively low health, though their armour mostly makes up for this.


Historically, the Hippeis Thessalikoi were recruited from Thessaly, a region known for its heavy cavalry. They served under Alexander the Great during his conquests, being second only to the Hetairoi in their effectiveness, and they continued to fight for Macedon after his death.
