About this creation
So I decided I was getting tired of building Star Wars, and I wanted to actually do something with those Spartans I bought. This was mostly a study in the different ways I could pose the minifigs while using their normal body parts in the normal places.

Having gained the high ground and controlled the road, the commander orders his troops to advance.

Can't decide which of the two main pics I like better. This one shows the poses better but also shows the commander's partially printed leg and the white rubber bands; the other one hides those parts and shows the road, but you can't see the poses as well.


Just subtle detailing to fill in this area. I was going to stick a skeleton here, but I decided that this was a recent battle, so there wouldn't be time for the body to decompose leaving just bones.


I think this pose turned out better than that of the standard bearer, but I don't like it that the rubber band shows and the yellow part of the leg shows. I'm happy with the dual-sided cape and the attachment of the shield, though.


Not sure whether I'm happy with this pose. The position of the arms turned out really well, but I don't like the showing white rubber band. I couldn't get the yellow band to fit inside the torso.

Thanks for looking. I don't build Historic stuff very often, so don't count on seeing more of this for a while. I'm trying to force myself to build a sequel, but...

Incredible! Just a few rubber bands add such a "majestic" feeling... A perfect diorama scene. Cheers, Jens

Posing if minifigures is definitely something you have handled - but paring it with a fine build like this, and the result is madness. (Madness? This. Is. LEGOŽ!)

Quoting The Lego Man ... Pure,heaping scoops of awesomesauce! What's the purpose of the white rubber bands?
Connects the arms to the torsos.

This looks great! I would like the second picture better if you could make the leg look a little more realistic like the first pic, but either one works. :)

I love it! Especially because my ancestors are from Sparta, Greece.
