Spartan Oplite - Pegaso Models new

    While individual bits and pieces are more or less accurate, it is rather fantasy than fact. As it was mentioned dual crests and greaves point to 6th cBC, helmet is more or less early 5th. The big problem is cuirass - it seems to be rather late 4th cBC version, what's more, decorations look completely wrong - those spirals are straight from bell cuirass from 6th century! Generally, mix of 3 centuries wargear.

    In theory, rich, old eccentric from 2nd half of IVth cBC who decided to dress as if glory days of Sparta never passed could end looking like this :p
    Redcap and Christos like this.

    Archelaos - Many thanks indeed for the helpful and interesting reply mate!

    I suspected it was more fantasy than historically accurate.

    Nice figure.
    Personally, I don't understand how can anyone fight with such huge & clumsy helmet ... :(
    I guess in those days showing off to your enemies was much important then the fighting itself .. ;)

    Hi friends,
    This figure is very similar, even how to pose, to my Picenian Warrior made from Tartar Miniatures;
    the grooved horns - they placed horsehair - are too steeps and also horsehair is very thick and very coarse.
    however, the horns are not symmetric about the curvature of helmet (see 1 photo)
    for further information about dimensiones of grooved hornes see my post about "Picenian Warrior"
    the armour, considered a bust with the tunic and the thickness of the metal is too small (narrow) on the body.
