Protect the King!

"Oh stranger, tell the Lacedaemonians that we lie here, trusting their words."

For me these words entered legend in my youth. The 300 Spartans fighting for Freedom against the monstruous Persians. Not a myth in a strict sense, but the deed of these Spartans still echoes, and is often a synonym of bravery, and a will to fight for their own ideas, and Freedom. In a way, it is a good story, and what is a myth: a great story, with a morale (sometimes), and full of great deeds.

I had pledged for the War and Empire kickstarter, and amongst the packs, there was the "Death of Leonidas". I just couldn't resist and had to paint the minis. So here they are, Forged in battle 15mm representing the Death of the Spartan king, with LBMS shields this time. The dio will serve as a camp for my Art de la Guerre armies. These minis were a joy to paint. the sculpting is great, Forged in Battle is now one of my favourite brand.

Il s'agit d'une saynète en 15mm représentant la mort de Léonidas aux Thermopyles. Les figurines sont des Forged in Battle, issues de leur kickstarter. elles sont très simples à peindre et sont plutôt bien détaillées. Un régal à peindre, vous en verrez bientôt. 

Cette saynète tient sur un rectangle de 8*4cm, afin d'en faire un bagage pour mes armées ADG.

    1. Je dirai que les pietons sont compatibles avec les premieres Xyston, avant leur traitement aux hormones. Par les cavaliers ne passeront pas, car ils sont plus petits.
