I could not paint that design if I had a100 years to do it.
A very nice illustration of a Spartan (Σπαρτιάτης) hoplite (οπλίτης) with the Gorgon shield emblem.

The warrior's panoply, which in this image, included the upper body armor that consisted of the linothorax. It was lighter in weight than the cuirass which was a bronze breastplate and backplate.

On top of the warrior's head is the famous Corinthian helmet, which had a crest attached to the top fashioned from the mane of a horse.

What differentiated the Spartans from the other Greek city-states is that their military was a full-time occupation which allowed them to concentrate on preparing for battle.

Are uniform prints suitable for tis community? If not, no big deal. 
A fantastic illustration of an Athenian hoplite (mid-4th century BC).

The warrior is wearing a muscle cuirass (chestplate) which is made of bronze and instead of the more familiar Corinthian, a Thracian-Attic type helmet. In his right hand the secondary weapon if the spear broke during battle. The sword which was known as a kopis (κοπίς) was used for slashing rather than stabbing.
