Warlord has new Spartans!
Warlord has new Spartans in linen armor for your kick-people-in-the-chest-into-a-bottomless-pit needs.
But don’t just take it from me:
The term ‘Spartan’ should only be used to donate the hoplites from the principal city of Sparta; the hoplites employed from other territories on the Peloponnese were ‘Lakedaimonian’. There is a widely held belief that the Spartans wore only bronze armour. This is not true, although due to their hoplite profession they are likely to have included a far higher proportion of bronze armoured hoplites.
It is likely that the Spartans were among the first to adopt the linen cuirass, as they had strong trade links with Asia and Egypt (where the cuirass is thought to have originated), where they often served as mercenaries.
Every hoplite in a Spartan phalanx is likely to have been armoured to a better degree than hoplites from the other Greek cities, as their only occupation was fighting!
Each miniature comes with separate shield arm and spear arm allowing you loads of variety and posing options.
Sold as a pack of 8 and as a unit of 24.
