Thracian light cavalry with Sarissa

This is one unit that didn't figure in my 1970s Macedonian army and I only recently acquired some from Harry. Basically, back then lots of people thought that there was evidence to show that some light cavalry in Alexander's army were equipped with a sarissa rather than javelins. This figure, Minifigs PBC6s, showed the commonest version - a Thracian.

Have to admit I like these figures. I fully intend to find a use for them.

  1. Ah yes! In their regulation Thracian black tunics and tartan cloaks. Too classic to not use.
