15mm Spartan DBA Army

At the moment I am selling Spartan DBA armies on Ebay using 15mm Xyston Miniatures.

Spartan armies always look good, a bit like the Romans do I think. They always look distinctive with their uniform appearance compared with other Greek armies...though the other Greek armies look good as well (he says contradicting himself, which I often do). Enough waffle here is the army, which as I say is listed on Ebay at the moment, though I can paint one direct without going through Ebay, just drop me an email at for a quote.

Above are the Spartans arrayed for battle (yes terrible deployment but I'm a hopeless tabletop commander, though I'm pretty sure the Spartan Hoplites will save some embarrasment.

An impressive shield wall to strike fear into other Greeks...

I enjoyed painting these figures from Xyston Miniatures, as you may be aware they are bigger than most 15mm figures but they have great detail and look impressive when painted up. They can be hard work and take time to prep for painting, having to have the hands drilled through to fit the spear on. But they are well worth it.

Well thats the 15mm Spartans....I might have to do the Athenians next, or the Thebans, or Thessalians... and maybe the later Persian...somebody has to get trashed by the Spartans, the most renowned and feared fighting men in the Greek world. Unless they are commanded on the tabletop by me, in which case they just come to a grinding halt...


  1. 15mm is not my thing but these look superb. They would make a great advert for the company.

    1. Cheers Pat, appreciate the feedback

  2. Just got my painted army, they do look wonderful. Now for some Athenians.....
