On Steve Saleh …

Spartans

Last month I painted up these Spartans sculpted by Steve Saleh. This whole big block of 36 minis came as part of the prize for best painted in the Warhammer Historicals Tournament at Adepticon in Chicago this past April. That’s about 1,000 pts of Lakedaimonian goodness for all the nerds! They were a joy to paint, very quick, and have the best (read: largest sculpted)  hoplon shields I have seen on 28mm Greek minis.

I just heard that Gorgon Studios plans to re-release these excellent minis in the near future, along with Etruscans and more to come! They have the very talented Dave Pauwels painting for them, so I can’t wait to see the studio collection grow!

These particular models use a mix of plastic spears, some from Warlord Games’ plastic barbarian sprues, and others from Wargames Factory’s barbarian sprues. These days Wargames Factory offers more Greek-themed spears, swords and hoplons with their amazon and skeleton sets.

  1. Fantastic Spartans. I was just wondering, where did you get you spears? I’ve been trying to find ones that look exactly like that. Did you make them yourself?

  2. Absolutely Gorgeous… Nice work, now I have to finish mine (to the level I can get too…)
