Hellas Hoplite by NathanRosario Hellas Hoplite by NathanRosario
Illustration for "Hellas: Worlds of Sun and Stone" rpg.
This was a great book to work on. If you want to know more about the book just go here- [link]

SCI-Fi in the world of Greek Legend!
In ancient times, the spacefaring Hellenes and their Gods defeated an empire that threatened the entire galaxy. Now, after centuries of darkness, their enemies have returned for a final reckoning, and only a chosen few -- wielding the power of the Gods -- stand between them and certain destruction.
Hellas is an exciting fusion of high drama, action-adventure, romance, mythology-infused space opera and science fiction.

This is great. I have a race in my own Alternity rpg campaign that I imagined exactly like these. I love the blend of archaic with hi-tech.

Until now we were saying that Greeks fight like heroes
Now we have to say that heroes fight like Greeks.

Nice! I've been playing around with a design idea similar to this one, I love the originality of it. I've been trying to envision what a modern/fantasy armored Hoplite would look like.

Very, very cool. I dig it!

I actually thought of doing something like that but they wanted him to look like a traditional hoplite as much as possible.

I was actually talking about this piece to my GF just the other day. A website [theRPGsite.com] brought this game to my attention and she and I were talking about how even if the concept was a little silly the art was friggin' COOL. Cyber/Sci-Fi Hoplites? Deal! It's weird to see it here now too (and be able to give props directly to the person who did it).

So... props!

Thanks man! I'm hoping the game does well. I'm sure you're not the only one that thought the same thing when they heard the concept of the game. Although I got to say that the writer managed to mesh things up very well.

Awwwww, that may be one of the top ten coolest things I've ever seen.
Particularly like the Lambda tying together the motif of the armor.
