3 New Titan Slaves!

You can see more about the 3 newest Titan Slaves at the Minismith's Forge blog HERE.
The second from the left is an official Crocodile Games Titan Slave to help show the new Slaves sizes...

 This dude is in serious trouble...

Finally, a sneak peek at the Titan Overlord with the Croc Mascot Sebeki for scale.

WarGods Minis Month'13 Update 12

I thought the Wargames Factory plastic Amazons were cool (which they are), but these Victrix plastic Hoplites are just as cool!
 In the Croc Kickstarter I went for the Amazons, mostly, because they're the figures and theme that I felt was most exciting. then I picked up these Athenians and decided a few phalanxes of Athenians and possibly mercenaries or something would be pretty cool too. There are "Battle Honors" that city-states can get for their phalanxes-- this first batch of Athenians has the "Poseidon's Faithful" Battle Honor (at least they have that option once the rules come out) which means they each need to have a trident on their shield. I rarely paint units up in any sort of regimented way, so each one of these first 7 (probably just 5 more of these guys to complete the phalanx) has a different trident on his shield...
 The 3rd from left is not only one of my favorite poses I put together so far, but also the favorite shield.

 The middle guy is my other favorite pose so far (along with the headswap to add more variety because I don't like the remaining helmets on the sprue). I also really like these last 2 shields on the right with their more abstract tridents...

 The Poseidon's Faithful form up against some Titans!

For comparison purposes- (left to right) Wargamse Factory Amazon, Victrix Athenian, Crocodile Games Spartan, Victrix Athenian, and Crocodile Games Heru. Not a bad fit since they'll be in their own units...

WarGods Minis Month'13 Update 11

So my plan for a Titan warband is to have almost every Titan be different from the others (especially the Slaves). So I've been gathering lots of larger minis together for years now in anticipation of starting the painting and construction. With the extension of WarGods Minis Month through this weekend I had to put a few together and get them painted...

 One of the Crocodile Games Titan Slaves.

 A Privateer Bridge Troll that is currently my favorite of all the Titans painted so far.

 And finally a Growler fromt he Vor line of minis.

 A couple comparison shots with one of the Crocodile Games Minotaurs.

And finally, some human-sized figures (Wargames Factory Amazons) up against the Slaves.

WarGods Minis Month'13 Update 10

 A little from Ægyptus and Olympus this time- a ToTanem Artifex (Crocodile Games) and a Female Centaur Archer (Foundry).

Above- a comparison shot with a Wargames Factory Amazon. Below- a comparison with a Crocodile Games Satyr.

 The Kickstarter has ended but WarGods Minis Month might still have a few more figures left...

WarGods Minis Month'13 Update 9

 Next up, 4 of the Wargames Factory multipart plastic Amazon Hoplites. These have been built and primed ever since I painted up the test figure quite some time ago.

 Second from the left is the test figure. So now I've got the first 5 of a phalanx, time to build some more and paint them before the Crocodile Games Amazons come out and these ladies are designated something else.

WarGods Minis Month'13 Update 08

'Sidereal Gloam' arrives on the tabletop almost 2 years after it's sister chariot Blazing Horizon was completed.
 This is the 4th time I've converted a MageKnight chariot into a Shining Chariot-style chariot for Ægyptus. The first attempt was sold off on eBay after some limited use. The second was for the use of a fellow WarGods aficionado, Jordan 'Banisher of the Undead.' The third was 'Blazing Horizon' (or "Burning Horizon' depending on the day) and now we have 'Sidereal Gloam.' These last two were planned and started together, they both incorporated lessons learned from the first two attempts.

 Part of the planning stages were the eyes on the floor of each chariot. I thought it would be cool to have a right eye and a left eye for them so if they were together in battle it would lend some extra mojo to them both...

  The strawsheath technology allows the banner to be easily removed or swapped out... the banner can be used as an objective marker if needed.
With this one completed it's likely to now be time for another Eater of the Dead chariot based on this MageKnight chariot. No completion date estimates yet...

WarGods Minis Month'13 Update 7

 11 Phantom Warriors completed for use as the Isis Harbinger power of the same name.
Somehow I came into a batch of the Arcane Legions Egyptian minis. I knew right away that they had to be done up as Phantom Warriors because I didn't want to convert any of the Crocodile Games Asar minis just to be ghosts. There are a handful left that will bring the total unit to 15 or 16 (though it's not likely you'd ever need that many in most games, but you never know).

And here we have the Isis Harbinger who just summoned these guys up for battle..

WarGods Minis Month'13 Update 5

A Sand Chicken, a Sebeki Hero and a Canopic Base make up this update. Sorta sound s like the start of a bad joke...

Some various bits to make up this objective/treasure marker. The canopic jars are made from various plastic bits that looked right.

The excellent Crocodile Games Sebeki Mascot figure-- I converted this one to have a large kopesh-like sword from the original hammer.

 I always forget how fun it is to paint up a Sebeki.

Finally a giant Sand Chicken, fierce hunting bird of the desert plains...

 This Asar is in pretty big trouble unless he can get a really lucky shot off...
