Well I have just finished the miniatures for the above Phalanx of the Basic Impetus Spartan army which I am I painting. The figures are glued in place to the base and I'll texture the base tomorrow so I'll get some pics organised at the weekend - World Cup permitting.
I have gone down a slightly different route with this base after finding the following website and the image it has for Spartan shields:
There are some interesting images in this site, some of which will make their way on to the next Phalanx's shield designs. More of that later.
Cheers for now...
