Cool-looking 'fig you got there! :)

One historical nitpick though: At that time, the Greek cavalry didn't use horse armor, which was a later invention. Also, Spartans were from a specific Grecian city-state, the more generic term for these warriors is "hoplites".

Well, thank you all for your compliments.

And to Hound Knight- I am more of a American History/Medieval History Nerd myself, I see I still need to do a little more research before I post. ;)

minifigcharmed- That means a lot coming from you! Thanks. I took a few pictures before I got the "grander" appearance.
