The legendary leader of the Spartans, King Leonidas, has been spruced up for the far future by HiTech Miniatures, with the release of their latest 28mm miniature. Follow the lead of ArchFather Leonidas.

ArchFather Leonidas

This model makes a great leader figure. It’s instantly eye catching and unique, with details that set it apart, such as that massive helmet plume. It’s an interesting interpretation of Leonidas, given that the popular imagination usually has him in far less armour (you can thank 300 for that).

However, it does fall fowl to my pet peeve in miniature sculpting. He cannot look left or right. To my mind that’s a pretty big handicap on the battlefield.

What do you think of HiTech’s interpretation of this classic Spartan hero?
