    Splendid! However, a real KH fan would be aghast at the walpaper, as the phalangites and archers were the last two things the Balkan Greeks were famous for. You really should add a hoplite to the wallpaper.

    Oh, that! I only wrote that to speed ahead of your slow posts. As you can see, I've edited it and congratulated this young boy on his splendid art.

    Good job, boy, seriously! Although one minor thing I notice is that the Greek and Roman phrases appear to be different shades of orange... Still wondrous, though. A great tribute to the glory of EB!
    Although AP does have a point in stating that hoplites were what the Hellenes were famous for...

    Why did you have to call Skullheadhq "boy", Meth? Discrimination against newbies ? You know, that's what 20-50 year old black males were called during the racist times of US. To downplay their importance and the already low standing.

    Its Akontistai actually. As for the unit, I would recommend some reformed hoplite (Thureophoroi, Thorakitai, Iphikratous Hoplitai, etc), or better yet - Peltastai (Hellenic Heavy Skirmisher).

    No. Thorakitai are much better.

    Except that the general of Alexander, Seleukos I Nikator, Founder of the AS. Was Alexanders general.
    And no, this is not an good mozaic of the battle of the battle of Gaugamela,. It's an good mozaic of the BATTLE OF IPSOS!And aren't they the heirs of MEGAS ALEXANDROS???

    It is great, but the greek is wrong.

    it should write...

    ΚΟΙΝΟΝ ΕΛΛΗΝΩΝ.

    At EB's startup era Greek would only be written in capital letters. Case in point this stele from Epeiros' mentioning the " ΣΤΡΑΤΑΓΟΙ ΟΙ ΕΠΙ " or "Generals in charge of"/"Generals in situ".


    (May I suggest in the future if you want to make another hellenic wallpaper, to copy paste letters from that stele, as this is the way they were written back then).

    Greek alphabet so that you know what you are looking at...

    Α-alpha
    Β-beta
    Γ-gamma
    Δ-delta
    Ε-epsilon
    Ζ-zeta
    Η-eta
    Θ-theta
    Ι-iota
    Κ-kappa
    Λ-lambda
    Μ-mi
    Ν-ni
    Ξ-xi
    Ο-omikron
    Π-pi
    Ρ-ro
    Σ-sigma
    Τ-tau
    Υ-upsilon
    Φ-fi
    Χ-hi
    Ψ-psi
    Ω-omega

    only problem for me is the mosaic, it seems compressed in the orizontal side, you could correct this in two manners, one is to cut a bit of left part, or right part, so to give it the right proportion, or a second way is to add some black bands up and down the picture, so that the mosaic got his proportion.
