And as I am currently reviewing the Alexander list (because another player had sent in a few observations) I noticed some of the Alex era pikes can have extra armour on top of light armour, so this would certainly neutralise the large shield – but of course remember a Trained Phalanx has benefits over a Phalanx when it comes to manoeuvring and over time, armour was sacrificed for this advantage

PLus of course – take plenty of pikes to win out on numbers fighting!
