The survey mentions something about specifying shields...is this referring to the existing Spartan and Mycenaean stuff only, or is there somewhere we can view the shield options for the other factions?

There is a sticky in the Olympus section about the specialised units in the other factions. This is where you should be directing your gaze.

Yes, there are so many options it was not possible to include them all in the survey. Basically, if you want a soecific shield for a unit, just write in which one you want and we'll make it happen. This applies to shields we have not yet made for some of the Battle Honors (Corinth, Athens, etc) -- so for instance, you could ask for Corinthians 'Companions of Theseus' shields, and we'd include those with your Corinthians. Just let us know which ones you want.

The only sticky I can see in the Olympus section seems to be text only and about warband construction , not shield designs.

Yeah, but in the warband construction, it lists the battle honours for each of the city-states, and some of them state "All the troops in the unit must have a shield showing X" For example for Athens the Companions of Theseus must all have a shield with a ship with black sails on it.

So presumably if you wanted your unit you received from the kickstarter to be Companions of Theseus (or whatever battle honours for whatever city-state you are taking), you could then specify what shields you wanted, as Chris has said pretty much that he'll sculpt shields that will work for all the battle honours. He just hasn't done it yet.

Oh. I was expecting pics.

I'm not too fussy about the rules requirements as such...more about the look of the figures. I don't play tournaments so I just do as I like!

It's presumably so that even outside of a tournament, the unit is easily identifable to the opponent.
