Photo Three - The same miniature alongside a 'bare metal' figure from the Spartan Games 5 man blister pack. A multi piece set with heads, arms and equipment as separate castings.
Photo Four - This figure shows the comparison between an Alternative Armies 50mm miniature (on the left) and the Spartan Games 40mm miniature (on the right). The main difference is not height but bulk. I intend using both ranges, the AA Typhon miniature in this case being modelled as a Hercules type hero. (Please note that I have removed the spear from the AA miniature - I will replace it with wire).
Photo Six - Instead of sticking to the traditional Greek myths, my plan is to use Sword and Sandal books and in particular films as inspiration. In addition I have quite a novel plan for the shield designs. You will have to wait and see!
My intention is, in the first place to paint a small warband and a monster or two, then test the rule system. I am being pushed into this new project by Dave at Grand Manner who also has a small band of 40mm Spartan Games Greek miniatures (including skeletons and monsters).
