    Nice job Francis.

    On the colour of the cape though, similar comment to those I made to Hardy here - you've done it orange, should be a deep red or crimson more than likely.

    Don't let Einion wreck your fun - he never likes any colours! ;)

    I like colour just fine, it's only where I see a problem with their use in a particular context that I feel the need to comment on it specifically :cool:

    As I said in the other thread, the info we have to go on for the Spartans gives the colour repeatedly as red, most specifically as crimson. So unless there's sound reasoning behind the choice painting it orange is, well, wrong. Particularly so when it's just an unintended artefact of mixing/painting method, which we've all had happen to us.
