Are the optional rules on page 27 for pikes, mercenaries and elephants going to be in effect? :shock:

No. These optional rules are not in play.

Was there something you were looking for?

I am working on a Pyrrhic army and there are only a few ways to get it done using current WAB supplements. I am really hopeful for the new AoA, but as an adult I know there is no Santa Clause or Easter Bunny!

I don't have the Alexander list handy - can you build Pyrrhus from the Alexander Empire list? To pull it off, you'd need Phalangites, some mix of Hoplite/Thureophoroi to stand in for the Italian allies, and Elephants.

Why don't you email me and we can discuss - I'm open to the option of using Pikes with the 1st Punic war list if that's the best way to pull of the army.

Didn't we allow JJs list for Pyrrhus?

But Alexander could be used for the most part-

JJ's list is not commonly available - the standard to which I would hold any list not published by GW.
