I wanted to do an army of Greek/Romans/Persian, but having just finished 24 battalions of Napoleonics I just couldn't face painting all those Romans. Then I came across something on AliExpress, that gave me an Idea…..

This is Sparta !

Figures cost about 60p each, which is about half the price of an unpainted metal figure. The elephants were £6.00 GBP each and the chariots were made of of the lego we had round the house. We had to buy a few bases and extra weapons etc, so total cost for each army about £70.00 GBP incl. calvalry. I'll post the romans in a bit.

We've also got a Minator, Medusa, Heracles….

That's certainly a very modular looking army, and it should be very easy to re-base the figures if you want to.

Also, with a change of headgear and weapons you could possibly use them for Zardoz-gaming.

:) Great stuff, fantastic ! One of the downsides of my boys growing up is I really miss the big battles on the floor.

I started them off with one piece fisher price figures (knights, cowboys pirates etc) – nice and safe.

Then moved on to playmobil ("thousands of them" ), lego and 54mm plastics!

Then finally opening the pandora's box of my "lead" collections. However I really miss the Lego and Playmobil days (it's all in the loft waiting for grandkids…)
