Bowing, scraping and wotnot...
« on: November 05, 2020, 12:23:11 PM »
Who makes some suitable 28mm figures for Greek like peoples worshiping at a shrine, type thingy please?
Master plan to fill the long days of the latest lockdown is...
a Spartan Shrine to the Dice Gods. Some sort of column with a D6 on it, the big 6 staring impassively down at the mortals grovelling below. I've already got a couple of those sets of Greek armour hung on a stick to dot about for a bit of atmosphere. I think properly handled this little vignette could look...
a right load of old bollocks!

Harry, 1st corps produce a vignette of a Greek priest making a sacrifice. There are also some suitable figures in the Foundry packs from either the historical Ancient Greeks or the Argonauts/Mythology range.

Regards.

Baueda also do a priest at sacrifice with an in-use of altar and a fun selection of, braziers and assorted pots and a plinth.

I have on and it looks jolly nice. The pose of the priest may suit your particular purpose nicely.

Muzfish, the Baueda set is very nice but I think looks very "Roman". Worth checking out if there are pictures on the Magister Militum or Baueda websites.

Thanks M, that's precisely the over the top barmy look, I'm after!

Harry, I have both the Baueda and 1st Corps vignettes. The Baueda one is resin and costs £12.50. The 1st Corps one £8.

You might also consider Foundry's Germanic women set.



A couple of them could even be used without converting.
