    Have created a quick mock up converting Miniart 1/16 Greek Hoplite figures.

    The standing Hoplite will be a Spartan, with a short tunic with sleeves, will change his hair as per the Homoioi. I need to change his cuirass to the Bell shape. For the Greek warrior on the floor I will change his Cuirass to the composite type, so I can add a design and make him look different to the Spartan. Not sure on the shields yet, seen some beautiful designs maybe that of an owl or fish, those have caught my eye but know that the Lambda and A for Athens would be appropriate. Have added a broken spear the primary weapon at that time so the Xiphos (sword) is deployed. I will change the plume on the helmets.

    Love it. Just a thought. Being that the spear is the primary weapon, it might be..more appropriate? if the guy laying on the ground is using his sword and the victor is using his spear. It would reinforce the idea that they guy had to "resort" to his sword and is defeated, while the victor is using his primary weapon. Just a thought, either way I like it!

    Thank you Peter, it’s just chopping and filling really. I do enjoy the challenge of making it look convincing though.

    Never say never, but saying that I do like the base they are on and doing just two figures means I can maximise the effort into the smaller grouping.

    Thanks Jason, I had thought about reversing the spear and sword but it would tell a different story and being a stand off weapon would create more space between the figures. I like the tension currently and points to the ferocious struggle up to that point. Will the attacker cut the throat of the fallen enemy or will he let his brave opponent live.

    Been on holiday with family so very little bench time last few weeks. Have managed to get some putty work in last couple of evenings to show some progress. I need to make a few changes but making progress.

    Set in the 5th century, depicting a Spartan Homoioi with bell Cuirass and the other Greek warrior in plate armour. The figures are incomplete with about 40% sculpting yet to do.
