Finished colunela formation. As you can see they were much smaller than pikemen blocks dominating on early 16th Century battlefields. It enabled much more flexible reaction and better use of terrain. However it was too week in hand to hand combat so it evolved to create bigger formation - famous Spanish tercio.
