I noticed tonight that the general description of a tatic on page 24 mentions that the Phalanx raises defence and armour. The rulestext of it just says armour. Was something perhaps left out?

And does it really just raise armour for melee? Most other tatics of this nature seem to raise armour all in all, so against shooting as well. Like the Nordgaard Fjellwarriors Shieldwall or the Mortans Legionaire Testudo.

1. That is an error. The rule changed during the three years of playtesting and gives only a bonus to the ARM. The DEF bonus of the original tactic was canceled in favor of a higher base DEF of the hoplites to make the tactic more different to testudo.

2. Yes, the tactic works only in melee. If you worry about enemy missile attacks, try a syntarch with sun blind or a priestess with arrow protection (or both, to make them nearly impossible to hit Wink )
