This hoplomachus figure from Shadowforge was also a cadidate for becoming Xena, Warrior Princess. I changed my mind once my husband found a Reaper figure that had the right dress for Xena (which then became Livia, gladiatrix, because it annoyed me that she was wearing a helmet).
Anyway, this figure was converted by Christian to hold a sword instead of a spear:
Not the best pics, and somehow there's a purple tinge from the light shining on my makeshift white paper background. It was more a symptom of my boredom with my uni assignment than a proper photography session! :-o
Anyway, she's on my to do list to go along with Livia. Hope to have her painted soon!
