Nothing to do with the Greek sculpts.

But I can see a totally massive row coming between Von and I, and the 'social services/council' VERY, VERY soon.  At wits' end At wits' end At wits' end At wits' end

It sounds as tho' they're going to try and take as much money from MIL....Do as little as poss, and expect Von and I to do 99.9% of the work.

They can (ahem) 'bog' off.*

Cheers - Phil

Had similar struggles with Social Work here, Phil.

I don't recommend my route of collapsing in the middle of Cineworld's foyer, cracking my head off the tiled floor, spending the night in an overwhelmed A&E to be sent home despite a tendency to lose sight, balance and then consciousness without much warning.

Did focus the minds of SW wonderfully, however!

Shakespeare and Jane Austen weren't good at spelling either.

My spelling & grammar is atrocious

Take care

Von & I are getting far too close to that for comfort, Mike, I'm afraid. I don't want to see

I'm determined 'to win' and not let the b*ggers grind us down, though.
They've been getting away with it for far too long, already.

Cheers - Somehow more angry than stressed. (Sigh)....and apologies again ,for going off on one, earlier in the thread

Good luck with the 'Social Work'

I had to bail one of the equivalent here up and point out that if anything happened to my farther in law I would do everything possible to ensure that they were held personally liable before they would assist in convincing him that some recuperation time in a rest home was the best course rather than sending him home with the same level of support that left him on the floor for 18 hours after a fall

Very nice sculpts Techno. I like very much the pose and the various armour types, usefull to create a city state army where differents "panoplia" coexisted, based on different economic status between soldier-citizens.
Great job Techno my compliments. Bravo!
I need to find the right rules to play the hoplitical warfare now.
Leon what do you think about decals for the shields?

It's easier than you think to paint fancy Greek shield-fronts, especially if you let yourself use indelible felt-tip CD marker pens for details. If I can do it, anyone can.

Spartans - bronze face, big lambda (you can vary the colours a bit if you like)
Athenians - capital alpha; gorgon head (the reference is to the shield of their patron goddess, Athene); owl
Thebans - club of Herakles
Sicyon - capital sigma

There could be numerous dolphins, snakes, gulls, wine-jars - just Google some Greek vases and see how they did them (and remember you don't have to confine yourself to bronze backgrounds, though these look good too). More difficult are octopodes, horses, bulls, and Greek writing; these I downloaded and reduced before printing and glueing on.

Just as a note of caution I bought some of the lbms generic 10mm Greek shield designs for some newline figures and they are tiny. I think there meant for the centre of the Magister Militum really.

I cannot tell a lie - those ones were glued on. But the hand-painted gorgons were a pleasant surprise - they look pretty good. I'll ask the better half to take a picture tomorrow.
