Macedonian Silver Shields
A 32 man unit of Foundry Macedonian Silver shields, the best of Alexander's army and the strike force of the early Successor armies of Perdicas and Eumenes. The army and character of Eumenes is one of my favourites during the period following the death of Alexander at Babylon. In 2004 I wrote two articles for Slingshot magazine on the two major battles of Eumenes which resulted in the winning of the wargames article prize for the year. The prize was a Foundry horde pack of my choice, I ended up with another 30 Companions which I have yet to paint (can never have enough Macedonian cavalry).
