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?

Ray's Heavy Hoplites and heroes from the core set, plus a Medium Promachos because I like the figure, I bought it twice and this one is now Ray's.

The heavies, 4 bases of.

With their veteran at the fore.

As the core set is meant to b etwo faction, here are two sets of commanders, including the Polymachos.

Quite a meaty batch, veteran front and centre!

Now Ray's Athenians are done too. Light hoplites

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

Adronikos, the Defender of Athens

The whole Lochos

Well, starting out with an army box, and knowing Ray's love of all things Spartan, I had to go with the feared heavywights of the Greek world.

The whole lochos.

Light spar…

Epic Eldar - Craftworld Iyanden

As part of the lockdown and clearing my immense figure backlog, I dug out some Epic Eldar I have had sitting round for a few years.

After considering the forces I had (I already own a Siam-Hann force) I plumped on Iyanden, a doomed craftworld with different priorities.

The main reason I bought Eldar for Epic in the first place (ie early 90s), I love their Titans! I sold my first version in the last century, but an Ebay hunt later...

Note the two Eldar guardians scurrying across the base...

Wraithlords (or Dreadnaughts as we called them in the 90s)

Guardians wit hleader and heavy weapons platforms.

Well, it's one basic platoon, but no armour is scaring me!

Eldar War walkers, an iconic unit, always loved the design!

The whole force, so far, sure I will add more soon...

He's a BIG boy!
