Machimoi was an Egyptian term for native soldiers, in this case raised as an emergency force and trained as phalangites, by Ptolemy IV, to resist the Seleucid invasion.
The miniatures are a blend of Gripping Beast Polemarch and Foundry (the unarmoured ones). The shield transfers are from LBMS, Steve there very kindly produced some additional sheets for me, with battle-damaged designs. I'm preparing some rear-rank elements with more unarmoured, bare-headed troops.
And now... both together!
