Spartan Trireme


Last Updated . Click "Updates" above to see the latest.

If this were to become an actual LEGO set, it would be about 1000 pieces and contain about 16 minifigures. It will include rowing benches, rowers, oars and Spartan warriors. A trireme is the Greek version of a submarine. It is fast and deals a lot of damage. There is a ram on the front, that is what the captain of the ship would use to sink the enemy ship. They would try to ram the side of the boat, making a hole in it, or go alongside it to snap the enemy ship's oars.

The 300 Spartans at the Thermopylae pass would never have held off the Persians for more than 2 days if the Athenian navy (consisting of about 200 triremes) hadn't  held the Persians off from the sea. A lot people want a Greek/ Spartan LEGO series, and this would be a big part of it.
