300 - Warmaster ancients

''This is where we hold them! This is where we fight! This is where they die!''- King Leonidas, 300

I had decided that my next Warmaster ancients project would be a quick one.
so straight away i decided i was going to get a Spartan force, well maybe not a full force but enough to recreate the battle of battle of thermopylae.

 I wanted to make it more in theme of the film 300 than real historical.

Looking at the army list for the Greek,The force consists of:

General - King Leonidas
1 unit of Spartan bodyguards
1 unit of hoplites (these will act as a supporting unit)

coming to a total points value of 285 (just short of 300 points)

All in all this small force has 17 attacks even if it doesn't charge( 20 if it does) and +3 to combat resolution

King Leonidas

''Give them nothing! But take from them everything!''

Front rank

Supporting rank
The 300

The 300 defend the Hot gates.

 The Miniatures are 6mm and i picked them up from the Baccus stand at the 2012 claymore gaming event.
