Hi guys, this is my new creation that i made to honour one of the greatest Greeks of all time, Alexander the Great !! I created a representation of the famous Macedonian phalanx, which was also the main pillar of Alexander's army, here you can see his marching for the victory to Gaugamela! The Macedonian Phalanx was an infantry formation developed by Philip II and used by Alexander to conquer the Achaemenid Empire and other armies. Phalanxes remained dominant on battlefields throughout the Hellenistic period, first of all the Macedonians, and then of all the States of the Successors and Epigones, for two centuries (mid-4nd to 2nd century BC) Their main weapon was sarissa or sarisa, was a long spear or pike about 4–6 metres (13–20 ft) in length. These long spears improved the traditional strength of the phalanx by extending the rows of overlapping weapons projecting towards the enemy. Here you can see a piece of the classic formation, the phalanx was at the center, the archers and the peltasts from behind, and the cavalry march left and right of the phalanges. History: The Battle of Gaugamela was the decisive battle of Alexander the Great's invasion of the Persian Achaemenid Empire. In 331 BC Alexander's army of the Hellenic League met the Persian army of Darius III near Gaugamela, close to the modern city of Dohuk (Iraqi Kurdistan). Though heavily outnumbered, Alexander emerged victorious due to his army's superior tactics and his deft employment of light infantry. It was a decisive victory for the Hellenic League and led to the fall of the Achaemenid Empire. More information you can found here, about Gaugamela and the Macedonian phalanx.
