Yesterday's post described elite infantry and elephant, let's keep on describing the Macedonian army with the heavy cavalry. In the DBA list, you have to represent Hetairoi and Thessalian cavalry.
Here are the Hetairoi, a word meaning Companions in ancient greek. They were the unit that Alexander lead himself on the battlefield - I promised myself to paint Alexander only when all other minis are painted.They wore very long kontos (cavalry lances) in battle.
They were followed by the Thessalian cavalry, who used shorter lances. The man in the middle is meant to represent an officer. He has a rich saddle made of panther skin.
To be continued.
