Just got home from a trip, and I finally got to finish what I've been working on for quite a while. I've always been fascinated by warfare in different eras, and this time I felt that the early days of firearms during the 15th-17th century needed some representation around here =) What you're seeing is rows of tercios* duking it out on a huge battlefield; and the brave battle-drummer trying to avoid bullets through sheer willpower.

*The tercio was an infantry formation made up of pikemen, swordsmen and arquebusiers or musketeers in a mutually supportive formation. The formation dominated European battlefields in the sixteenth century and the first half of the seventeenth century and is seen by historians as a major development of Early Modern combined arms warfare. (Wikipedia!)

Byzantine Heavy Cavalry of 11 - 15 century
alternative : [link]
The Kataphractoi trace their origins back to Roman times and are normally recruited from amongst the middle classes, providing the Byzantine army with a force of well trained and well disciplined cavalry units. Well protected and armed with a lance and a mace and although somewhat outdated by modern heavy cavalry, they still make for formidable fighters on the battlefield.

My first and hopefully not last contribution to another historical magazine. This time we move further back in time, to antiquity.

Horrible color choices were forced on me, don't hit me.

For who knows how many times, I have again read Steven Pressfield's "Gates of Fire" book, and again inspired by it, I decided to draw something or someone...
Polynikes. He is a Spartan Peer, a champion of his generation. Flawless in looks and peerless in valor, he is the nephew of King Leonidas and a member of the King's Three Hundred Spartans in addition to being an Olympic champion. He's the youngest winner of not one, but two Prizes of Valour at the age of 23.

I wanted to stay true to that age and I did a little research, so, everything on him is from that time. Taking in count that he is one of the Noble Knight's and a champion, his equipment is better looking.

"MOLON LABE!"
