Hmm... I might, once in a while, if it comes close to one of my projects ( I 
have several that need rounding up and more in the pipeline). One of my 
projects is Bronze Age / Iron Age Europe. That might fit in.

However, I gently urge you to try to make clothes too :-)  All you need is 
Poser (of course), and Wings3D (for instance) for making the clothes. 
Basically, clothes are nothing more than a bunch of cylinders, truncated 
cones and planes. The Poser Cloth Room is then where you 'pose' the clothes 
on your figure. Start simple (a tunic, breeches). Don't try immediatly a 
toga: that would be one of the advanced projects and probably fairly 
difficult to get right. Armour, while seemingly simple, can possibly be 
rather difficult too.
