There is no beating the Gamezone harpies, though, I feel. Lovely creative, dynamic poses and they basically paint themselves.

These and Gamezone ones are too different to be compared, I feel. These are just daemonic but with perfect dynamic. Gamezone ones are much prettier females but not that perfectly sculpted and not that evil.

Hadn't noticed this one before from our friend at 4A miniatures and thought that it should be commented upon: Young Cyclops, a novel idea. Ordered!

An interesting take on Harpies. Love the flying base.

has you say. Well done.
but a little bit expensive ?

that one could be an alternative for (and cheapier) :

DC Heroclix Cosmic Justice FURY Veteran #030



with a little work of conversion.......

Have it sitting on my workbench now and a lovely little figure it is! Highly recommended service from 4A miniatures!

If you're going to get a Talos, why not get the 'real' thing?  Xplus made some very nice action figure/statues a few years ago.  They're supposedly limited edition, but I got mine on Ebay for about $20USD, if memory serves (maybe 30 bucks total with shipping).

I got mine from a rummage bin at Cold Wars for $5, and a Kali from one of the Sinbad films also $5.

I'm putting my 10mm collection in case someone is interested in small scales:

Centaurs from Pendraken


Harpies from GW from its Warmaster range


Fauns from Eureka


Fauns & Minotaur from Eureka in Pendraken dungeon


"Heroes" from Pendraken (converted) and the one pointing with a sword from Magister Militum


The same ones fighting a Minotaur


And here against some Pendraken skeletons

Re: Greek Mythology Showcase - Hades?

I've been looking around for a mini that would make a good Hades and I think that I've found it. From an upcoming Heroclix release:



The legs will need some green stuff, but otherwise a great mini.

I painted this morning these little chaps. With them I consider my small project finished. Now I need to find some time to play!




Cheers,
