Please note: Due to the wisdom of PhotoPhucket, all of the pictures on the first couple of pages have gone.
I shall retake them at some point in the future but, until then, pictures now begin on page 3.

This Summer should see the start of a bit of God-gaming in our group at last.
 :D

We started looking at Of Gods And Mortals some three years or so ago when it was first released, but one thing or another kept getting in the way.
Well, now it seems that we are actually going to get started.

I shall be initially be putting together two factions: The Greeks and The Norse.
I have a pretty good head start on these two factions as I have been slowly gathering figures to the cause which will see as little effort as possible needed to get things going. I shall also be raiding my existing collection to make life easier.
I know my mojo is a fickle thing at the moment so I want to make sure this project actually happens (just ask my ACW Rebs what happens when I dont... ::)).
To this end I have been picking up painted figures that require little effort to finish them off to add to the force and am counting on the basing to bring them all together as a coherent force.

First up will be the Greeks, as I have plenty of figures in hand to get started.
Here are the first few units that have been assembled this weekend....





First up are a very small unit of Hoplites, which can also be used to bolster other units if points need to be spent.....



...those shield transfers go a long way when cutting corners.



And a unit of Undead Spearmen......



....as I intend to use Hades as one of the God options and they will work well with one of the Legends that will join the force later. There will also be more Skellies added soon as well.
 ;)


Next up, some Satyrs.....



........stolen from my Mordheim Beastmen warband, which will be donating quite a few as another God to be added will be Pan.




The first of the Legends, The Minotaur....



...another Mordheim escapee.




And finally for now, Chiron The Centaur.....



....who is on a very exaggerated base, but which will be a theme for the Legends to help them stand out from the Mortals.
Both Chiron and The Minotaur also work well in the 'Beasts of the Forest' force I plan to use with Pan.

More to come soon.....

Thanks, chaps.
 :)

Rui: Those Rebs will be done. Some of them even have some paint on them, although none are finished yet.

Sorting these figures out for OGAM is starting to help me get my mojo back, though, so it may be sooner than I thought.
Fingers crossed!
 :D

Thanks, but I cannot really claim any 'brilliant idea' points with that one.
I took them in natural light in front of the window and they were very overexposed. so I reduced the lighting levels in Photobucket so that you could see them better.
The 'vignette' frame was my idea though, to try and blend the result into something more acceptable.

I have made the same mistake again with the latest additions but will use the same method so that they appear similar before posting them later.
After that I had better sort out the settings on the camera or take them under artificial lighting as I normally would, methinks....
 ;)


AH  ;D

Silly boy!

The offending articles....


Introducing the newest additions to the Greek force, Jason and the Argonauts....




Jason himself....



 ......using the Generic Greek Hero profile, although I may also use him as Achilles as an alternative option.
I am also considering putting him on a larger base to match the other Legends, maybe a sabot so that he can be removed.




The Argonauts ....



 ....using the Spartan Hoplite profile to make them a slightly more 'elite' option as opposed to standard Hoplites.




And with the rest of the Greek force so far......




There are more Undead and Satyrs to be added soon.

Getting there......
