Spartiates question
« on: July 02, 2015, 12:00:38 PM »
What are the 4 boxes on the face of the Spartiates for.  Also, what are the rules for including them in armies (i.e. what armies can they be included in).

The boxes are their army abilities.  The boxes with helmets is the Deep Ranks ability and the ones with several shields is called Locked Shields.  PDFs of the abilities can be found here:

Deep Ranks

Lock Shields

The abilities are formatted like reminder cards so you can print them out and sleeve them. 

Deep Ranks requires you to have another Phalanx unit to use it.  Lock Shields can be used with Command Actions, but remember that Mercenaries require you to spend an extra CA to use their checkbox ability.

Please note that these abilities, like the faction, are still in beta-testing and may end up with slightly different wording.  The effect is likely to be roughly the same, though.
