(WIP 1) Athenian Hoplite

Decided to explore a smaller scale to challenge myself. Started of with a 75mm resin kit from Historia Miniatures (Greece). The subject is a Athenian Hoplite from ancient Greece.

[Extract from Wikipedia] Hoplites were citizen-soldiers of Ancient Greek city-states who were primarily armed with spears and shields. Their main tactic was the phalanx formation. The hoplites were primarily free citizens—propertied farmers and artisans—who were able to afford the bronze armor suit and weapons. Hoplites generally received basic military training.
