Complete list of all Alexander's battles and major skirmishes such as Sagalassus, Uxia, Persian Gates, Aornos etc, including Alex's only one Naval battle at Tyre. All other pitched battles scenarios are generally improved and updated with new setup positions and additional special rules, to make it much better and historically accurate simulations. Don't forget to use two Agrianians as LI size 3, MA 6 as Velites - do not use them as SK. (They were Elite crack assault Light Infantry, either first in battles, sieges or other engagements. They were not missile first unit, but mobile, shock unit).
