Phantasmal Phalanx

7th-level conjuration

Casting Time: 1 action

Range: 60 feet

Components: V, S, M (a tiny statue of a warrior made from gold and precious stones, worth at least 250 gp)

Duration: Concentration, up to 1 minute

You summon six golden, phantasmal soldiers in unoccupied spaces you can see within range. Each soldier is considered Celestial, and it disappears when it drops to 0 hit points or when the spell ends.

The soldiers are friendly to you and your companions.

Roll initiative for the soldiers as a group, which has its own turns. You can communicate telepathically with the soldiers as long as you are on the same plane of existence, and the soldiers obey any commands that you issue to them (no action required by you). If you don’t issue any commands to the soldiers, they defend themselves from hostile creatures or position themselves protectively next to you and your allies, each soldier moving to within 5 feet of at least one of you. While positioned protectively, a soldier can use its reaction to impose disadvantage on a melee attack roll against the target it is protecting, Chapter 5 Spell Descriptions 207 provided the target remains within 5 feet of the soldier.

The GM has the soldiers’ statistics, using a veteran that has a shield and is immune to nonmagical bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage.
