I really like that Minotaur!

Also, the Bane Beasts range has a really good Hydra which I have purchased. Quite a big one and relatively inexpensive compared to the other options. I remember starting a thread about Hydrae which is kicking about somewhere. Some nice pics there, too.

Just came across this small range of ancients, Rusted Heroes.

I especially love the Cyclops.

This beauty just showed up in the Bazaar of Obscurities. Triton's Sea Chariot, a long out of production fig from Thunderbolt Mountain. Beautiful.

I'm going to enjoy painting this one up. I think that I need to paint another 40 or so infantry and civilians up before I let myself near it.

The manufacturer may call him Nabzif the Storyteller, but I'm going to call him Orpheus



Formerly a magnificent ego's mini, it's now carried by Valiant Enterprises.

And it looks like there is another option for Perseus out there.  I dig the sculpt but I am still more of a fan of the Bronze Age one.  That said the only one I own is the Reaper one that I am not a huge fan of, stupid low impulse control.  This one from Morland Studios looks like it might be more useful for a diorama than a playable mini, as the Kraken head and waves look huge.  Still cool though, and hopefully we will see more Greek themed stuff from Morland and their Howard David Johnson licensed line.

Looks good to me. Even if a bit static if compared to the painting. Surprisingly so, since the model seems to be quite an accurate copy.

Nice find! A beautiful sculpt, but I'm a bit wary on the price
