I have started work on the two command figures for when the Greek archers need them present (God of Battles, for instance).
I know, standards were not really used by the ancient Greeks, but for some Fantasy purposes, I need to mock one up, anyway.
I have decided to use the static pose for that purpose; I am going to glue an upright wire spear to his right arm, and then sculpt his right hand around it(!).
I am not sure if I can actually sculpt a lifelike hand, but we shall have to wait and see...
