Our Grandest Painted Battle of Thermopylae Playset - Refight One of History's Greatest Battles

In 480 BC, in Northeastern Greece, a small force of Greek warriors held off a vast Persian army in one of the most lopsided battles ever fought. The Greeks, led by the king of Sparta and his bodyguard, occupied a narrow seaside pass, forcing the Persians to attack where their superior numbers could not be brought to bear. Spearheaded by the Spartans, the heavily armored Greeks might have held back the eastern invaders even longer, except a local tribesman betrayed them and led the Persians around their rear. Nevertheless, the Greek stand has been celebrated in song and story for thousands of years, recently retold in the novel "Gates of Fire" and the film, "300". We salute the brave Greeks is this playset, holding back the Persians as they fight for control of a fully painted pass.

All the figures in this set were manufactured by Expeditonary Force or Conte, whose ancient warriors are the best in the business. They are accurately sculpted to represent the actual soldiers who participated in the battle. The 60mm models (slightly larger than 54mm) were all painted by our in-house artist in our "superior," fully-decorated style, in which we cover every square inch of the figure with paint, packing as much detail onto the figure as we can. We have taken pains to ensure that you will receive many different poses of Greeks and Persians in numerous regimental outfits. Accompanying the Persian host is a giant, full-painted Persian Champion and a Toy Soldiers of San Diego war elephant, which the Persians fielded to great effect against their enemies for hundreds of years.

6 fully-painted Greek Hoplite Warriors by Expeditionary Force
3 fully-painted Greek Hoplite Warriors by Conte
