    Hello All fellow Planet Figure members.

    I just finished this beautiful piece from Andrea Miniatures and I would like to share it with you. I know that you have used to see me painting only Napoleonic figures, but this one is a special occasion, since I will gift this figure to my girlfriend, who loves Ancient Greek History.
    So it was a good opportunity to finally paint something else :)
    Any comments and critics are welcomed.

    Hello,
    nice name - the historic Xenophon is my favorite ancient Hellas personality - the man behind the art of equitation and warhorse training - the author of many books but espeicaly this one -On Horsemanship ! and ofcourse the Anabasis:)
    and your work here is very nice!
    but I would change the title - there is no way this helmet belonged to 460 BC (bce).
    it is rather at least a century or more younger :) - well actaully Andrea as usual mixed a few things, they are not reallyparticularly attentive to the historicity of their figures.
    but Xenophon, it is your choice of course!

    Thanks Engin :) I hope that she will like it.
    Dario thanks a lot for the information. I also thought at the beginning that there's something wrong with the helmet and the perior, but.. ohhh well..

    Thanks a lot for your kind comments Costas and Christos. As you correctly said, women have a big power, but I found it as a good opportunity as well.. to change style (just for 1 figure anyway).

    xenofon,

    This is a nicely painted figure. I'm very sure your girlfriend is gonna like it.

    Thanks a lot Marc. I really tried to put a good effort on this figure since it was a present.. and also out of my era of interest.
    Hmm now that I'm thinking of it.. I have also have to do the templar of Romeo (another figure out of my era of interest)... Ohhh boy ehehehehe.
