Hellen de Troie et Hoplites génériques

Avancement d'Hellen de Troie. Chris nous dit qu'il y a eu pas mal de faux départ mais que ça suit son cours.

I'm still struggling with Helen sculpture, she is proving to be one of the most troublesome figures I've worked on recently. (No surprise really, considering all the trouble she caused for Menalaus back in the day!) I've had a couple false starts on her, but the latest revision is starting to shape up. I'll be posting pics as soon as she nears completion, but that will be a while yet.
For those who are eager to see something new and 'green', check out this thread:
'Generic' Hoplite Tread (images page 2)
I just posted some pics of the 'generic' Hoplite I've been working on-and-off the last couple months. More bits for him are coming in the future!
Des Hoplites génériques modulable qui devraient arriver dans très longtemps. Ça suit son cours aussi.

OK, so it seemed that there was great support for a customizable Hoplite for this project, so I went and put one together.
This guy is made mostly of bits & pieces from other past Hoplites, built on an old human armature that we had made up way back when for Mycenae. He's basically just a torso with legs and a shield arm - the head and weapon arm are separate pieces. Basically the same way we do the 'Front Rank Hoplites', but with a separate head.
You'll notice that there are a couple new shields in the picture too (bull and octopus) - these are the first 2 of a dozen or so shields that Todd and I made over the past year. I'll show off some more in a few days, the shields will be available in random assortments to make up mercenary units.
I'm going to try to put these together so that you get 3 head options, a couple weapon options, and a single shield (probably random).
The basic guy is done now, but it will be a while yet before he's totally ready - I still need to make another generic head and another weapon arm (maybe a sword). I'm just sneaking bits in on him between working on the rest of the Kickstarter minis (while their putty is drying...)
Here's what one looks like unassembled:
Here is one assembled:
Same body, different head, shield, and weapon.
