Hot on the heels of the Athenian Hoplites comes Victrix Ltd's Spartan Hoplite boxed set.
As with the Athenian boxed set, there are 48 figures, contained of 6 frames, each holding 8 figures. In fact the basic torso/leg parts are exactly the same and so previous comments hold true here.
The difference is in the variety of weapons and musical instruments supplied and of course a whole new set of Spartan heads. I must say that these heads are very characterful and really make this set stand out form the Athenian counterparts!
As expected he figures are moulded well, with virtually no flash and they construct easily, basically adding the head, from a selection of variants, plus shield arm and weapon arm. There are a mix of swords and thrusting spears on each frame as well as a set of arms holding a set of pipes to be played by a musician.
