BattleWorn Achilles by StuArtStudios BattleWorn Achilles by StuArtStudios
1100 BCE, the Trojan War has raged on nearly 10 years.  With the city of Troy in ruins, the heroes take their place among legends.  Achilles, choosing glory over peace, has carved his name into the echos of eternity.  But at what cost?  What a terrible toll immortality takes, carried by the ghosts of thousands..
Achilles has seen some shit, y'all!

New painting for Smite!  One of my favorite projects I've got to work on to date!
Hey come find me out there!  :)

Damn... the blue part is slightly out-of-place, though, as Spartans used warm colors, like brown, red, and brass.

True, but Spartans also didn't have spears like that. Mostly because they'd be a pain in the ass to smith.

I didn't actually realize the spear was like that until now :/

If my memory serves me correct, I believed Spartans used a sword called 'Gladius'? Or was that the gladiators?

 I mean, it looks fancy, but it's not very practical. That's not to say there weren't spears similar in design, if less elaborate. Here's an example, it's based on the leaf spears of the La Tene era Celts. deepeeka.in/leaf-shape-celtic-… The helmet is based on Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Roman designs (the Roman contributing to the plates around the ears and the broad neck bill. The leather is studded with steel plates riveted on the interior. Her red tunic is silk and she wears a gorget and a hauberk w/ sewn steel scales. Her red tunic is layered silk.

It's called a Xiphos. The Gladius was used by the Romans, who wiped out the Spartans. Gladius just means "sword" in Latin, it's the root-word from which "gladiator" is derived. "Gladius" also is used in Latin as slang for penis, the word "vagina" meaning "sheath". www.dartmouth.edu/~humananatom…

Word.  Well you know how video games are, they got to have all kinds of different skins for all their characters. You can check out the concepts, by Sven Bybee, I was provided on my ArtStation if you're interested.

You realize this is just a custom skin for a character in the video game Smite, right?  They also have a scifi Mech-Achilles.  Context.

Do you realize that pseudoexcuses do not fit here?
The title and picture are clear.
A game plays with history and though you know it you support the situation, but when you get caught you answer "Not my fault, it's the game's fault"
You are ridiculous and the more you continue it the more shit you become.
