Thanks. I take it his lancers' lanceros ran longish.Be careful. Smoking that cigar might be a risk for hernia.
EDIT: Let me say that I have rolled some very long stogies, which I found to be surprisingly difficult. But nothing near as long as that one. So congratulations on such a truly lovely lancero de Alejandro de Macedonia.
Ah! While the graphic does show some long lances it doesn't do justice to the concept over the first-row over-jut, does it! However did they maintain a hold on those things with that gravity leverage working against them? Some sort of attachment of the lance butts to a belt? Your last line is true and really cracked me up!The lance points of every man in the first five ranks of a Macedonian phalanx extended in front of the first rank. Kind of tough for the other side in melee combat. That technique got young Alex through Persia, and all the way to Afghanistan. If the lances had been extra long stogies, he might have won their hearts, rather than having to stab them.
