    Hello everyone his friends planets!!!
    These days before Christmas, I managed to finish this wonderful miniature of pegaso to 90mm.

    Dienekes(Διηνέκης):

    Perpetuity was one of the 300 Spartans who took part in the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC under King Leonidas.
    The Dienekes was known because of the response of "better, we will fight in the shade, when someone remarked that the Persians are so many that their arrows will be buried under the sun. This phrase was to become synonymous with bravery, boldness and contempt of death, because when it comes to the battlefield, honored, is the highest ideal for a country - city.
    Herodotus tells us [1] that the third and final day of the battle and after Leonidas was mortally wounded, the Dienekes with some of the companions of 4 times his body was pulled from the hands of the enemies until they all died from barrage of arrows.
    I expect any feedback for this job and I wish you a Merry Christmas!

    Alexandros, I think you have done a wonderful job on a very nice figure. The pattern in shield "gorgonion", the leather "pteryges" and the groundwork, are your strong points in this figure.

    PS Thanks for the credit...

    Hi! Alexandros.
    Indeed it's gorgeous and is a beautiful work.
    A metal work is wonderful.
    The red of a mantle is also very vivid and beautiful.
    Painting of a shield is amazing.
    I think it builds into a dignified work.
    I congratulate completion, my friend.
