I decided to play around with the spearman a little. Not very impressive,but i think that the clothing is good,everything else needs some work. I like shake´s spear better but if i could get it with some modifications on this sprite i think it would be solid.
Still needs work,so shake if you want you can work on this one.

No. I made it with a lot of inspiration from the kalifa immortal and a ref pic,but his left arm and feet are almost identical to the kalifa immortal.

I know you said the Immortal was finished, but I made some tweaks anyway. I'm that kind of person.

Wow, I'm gone for a week and everyone gets more talented! I love your Immortal, but to fully get the effect of his mask you should bring some more contrast to the bottom half. My apologies if you have moved on, I just felt compelled to tell you this!

No need to apologize,it is an easy fix. I´m working on the heavy hoplite but don´t have much time,so he´s going slowly.
Just got an idea,maybe i could make the bottom like gold,so i´ll try both an post him later.

EDIT:Here are 4 versions,which one looks best,and what can be fixed if none are good?

If you mean between the last 4 and the older version thats because i only modified the end of the mask.
And if you mean between 3 and 4 they are the same just a different palette :)

This is rather late, but.

In my version his face actually is covered, I'm just showing beady eyes like in the General. My other tweaks were simply to give depth by not having the grooves in the helmets a constant colour.

Anyway, back to the present:
I would say 4.

I definitely prefer 9a, although maybe the shield is a bit too near his body/too far back. Looking good otherwise :)
