My Spartan Helots are like light infantry capable of forming phalanx and also of breaking forward into skirmish order. As such, they can cover a bit more ground than the elite Spartiate phalanx and are much needed on the table-top.
Because of their dual formation capability, I need to continue with single bases - not the end of the world but a bit of mucking about.
All the figures are First Corps and I just love them. I think they have great animation - on par with Old Glory in that respect.
I went with a greater emphasis on natural colours for the horse-hair crests and more blank shields. Those with designs were simpler than their overlords.
