Historical fail. Spartan women were not in he army.

Also those are all just the same guy, btdubs. I don't know why you think it's so impressive to advertise your multiples.

Often, literally, a pillow fight but may include similar situations like volleyball, particularly when wardrobe is skimpy and the action is bouncy.

B|z:
Wow.. B|z this is disappointing, I mean of all the people here I figured you at least would have read the title of the thread before posting. The title is "This is (not) Sparta!" this indicates that these are not Spartans so that would make your statement what.. literacy FAIL ? :lol: :lol:

For Zahru II:
The girl is a stand in until the Lego Group sends me the replacement cape for the mis-cut one that came with the 10th man.

Now back to B|z:
They are the same? Wow I did not notice guess i'll have to change that, thanks for the tip. Not sure that I think its "impressive" per-say but I will admit to hubris on account of my army building.

Which reminds me of the Piltogg's favorite shirt by an eastern european nsbm band which reads: "war is to men what motherhood is to women".


On topic: Impressive collection of hoplites. I wonder where that girls torso is from?

I happen to like the Hitomi armor and face used this way. But then that is just me. :wink:

One thing that I don't like about that torso is the print on it wares off abnormally fast, I have seen pictures of other people who have the same torso and half the paint is gone. Mine has lost a lot for the amount of use I have put into it so it must be a defect in the entire like of the part.

Nice collection! I've been using a program for my phone to scan barcodes so I only buy the spartans from the collectible range, but there's not that many stores that carry them. I'm up to 5-6 now or something, it's good to know what they look like in force :) Will do nicely as a mercenary regiment or something like that.
