Raphia, the armies buildup....

Another unit of pike, this time Ptolemy 'Egyptian' Pike.  From what I have seen and read these were newly raised or 'part time' troops raised to face the Seleucid.

To represent this I have used Greek Psiloi and unarmoured Hoplites, I think this gives them a very 'ununiform' feel.
They are also slightly larger that the normal pike phalanx at 48 figures instead of 32.
The Ptolemy Army has four of these units...alot of figures lol

As usual these figures are all Xyston, as are all my Macedonian/Greek v Persian wars!
