Mortal Gods

Footsore recently released this rather fun game, based around 28mm skirmish fighting in ancient Greece. Tried it at Campaign, then got a set for my birthday from Manny and Rob at Boards and Swords.

Turns out Ray also has Mortal Gods! He asked me to paint his stuff, who was I to deny him?

Now Ray's Athenians are done too. Light hoplites


Heay hoplites, the sun was casting some rather amazing shadows.


Adronikos, the Defender of Athens

Slight rebase/additions to the units, ready to annoy serious MeG players as these are going to become a 26th Dynasty list.

Annubis warriors rebased (one base) and five more bases added,









I added the blue war crown and longer cross braces on the chariot.


Eight originals rebased, and eight more added.
