No. When I had Hoplites, I refused to use them as Spartans.

Personal logo Bashytubits Supporting Member of TMP11 Oct 2018 9:03 p.m. PST

I have an entire army of them. I also have an Athenian and Theban army as well.

goragrad11 Oct 2018 11:41 p.m. PST

Saurocet12 Oct 2018 3:14 a.m. PST

Yes, an army of 15mm figures with Lambdas on their shields.

ZULUPAUL Supporting Member of TMP12 Oct 2018 3:21 a.m. PST

No but I have the figures in 15mm for a DBA army, just not painted yet.

JimDuncanUK12 Oct 2018 4:09 a.m. PST

Yes, loads.

Personal logo 20thmaine Supporting Member of TMP12 Oct 2018 5:28 a.m. PST

Yes – if I got them painted. Until then no.

Personal logo Stosstruppen Supporting Member of TMP12 Oct 2018 5:39 a.m. PST

Soon I sold all my 15mm hoplites to do armies in 28mm. Working on them now….

Wackmole9 Supporting Member of TMP12 Oct 2018 5:43 a.m. PST

Nope, Best thing about Sparta was it was turn into a "disneyland" for Romans later on.

wrgmr112 Oct 2018 7:09 a.m. PST

No, I have Athenians.

Legion 412 Oct 2018 7:17 a.m. PST

My High School Teams were called "Spartans" … evil grin

Personal logo etotheipi Sponsoring Member of TMP12 Oct 2018 7:52 a.m. PST

My High School Teams were called "Spartans"

Mine were the Trojans. No … really.

Also, I do have a Michigan State 11 man team.

But a whole Spartan army? No … just a few units of them.

JARROVIAN Supporting Member of TMP12 Oct 2018 8:44 a.m. PST

A full Spartan army in 15mm including Spartiates, Perioki, Helots, Mounted infantry and allies.

JimSelzer Supporting Member of TMP12 Oct 2018 9:02 a.m. PST

a couple units but not a full army

my ancients are a work in progress mostly because I can't narrow my choices as easy as Napoleonics


too many good choices too little time and money

DeRuyter12 Oct 2018 9:55 a.m. PST

15 mm Xyston Spartan army plus several other city states all based DBX style.

My son's HS teams are Spartans as well!

JJartist12 Oct 2018 10:48 a.m. PST

Not to BigRedBat's standards, but something.


Earl of the North12 Oct 2018 3:53 p.m. PST

Well I have a Spartan, totally wrong era though (Master Chief from Halo). evil grin

khanscom12 Oct 2018 6:15 p.m. PST

Greeks, but intended as Syracusans-- not Spartans. I don't know where the naked Amazons fit in.

Winston Smith12 Oct 2018 8:05 p.m. PST

In NEPA, Nanticoke Area high school teams are the Trojans.
Wyoming Valley West are the Spartans.

Oh, and Pittston Area are the Patriots!

DOUGKL12 Oct 2018 8:19 p.m. PST

I have Spartans as well as Athenians and Greeks for other cities.

smog monster13 Oct 2018 5:33 a.m. PST

yes, but mine are Hellenistic's so the spartan element are pike armed.

wmyers13 Oct 2018 11:51 a.m. PST

Yes, if assembled (and painted).

Toy Soldier Green05 Nov 2018 9:07 p.m. PST

I could in 6mm if I were to sit down and actually assemble and paint the army.
