TL Samurai Jack Spartan

'Jack and the Spartans' is one of my favorite episodes from Samurai Jack, so it didn't take me very long to begin on a Spartan for my new Tanoland scale.

 

The episode itself is based on the famous battle of Thermopylae and the artwork itself is partly based on Frank Miller's graphic novel '300'. Well except for the robot minotauri. And the rocket spears. And the fact that this is the far future, not the past.

 

Anyway, dark red is a difficult colour to work with because of its part palette. I'm very happy with the helmet and the rocket spear looks good so far. (Might have to look for a more aesthetically pleasing way of attaching the multiple spear parts though.) I have an idea for the shield, but that won't work in LDD.
