Amazons and Greek Myth
« on: May 02, 2022, 06:27:31 AM »
Just finished a few tester models for a force of Amazons and photographed them scrapping a number of my Greek myth minis (Hercules and Athena by North Star; Harpies 3d prints from Artisan Workshop, sourced on Etsy; Cyclops is a 1/72 plastic by Dark Alliance; and plastic skeletons from Wargames Atlantic).  The Amazons are lovely sculpts by Lucid Eye that will be absolutely perfect for my games of OGAM and Midgard. 

Blog article with some assembly and painting information and more pics is here: https://mogsymakes.net/2022/05/01/amazons-and-greek-myth/

Excellent painting and photos.

I have quite a few of the Northstar Amazon in the ranks of my hoplites. I wish they would expand the range from one figure.

I looked at the Lucid Eye site and the Amazons they had looked completely different? No helmets or skirts just feathers and bits of cloth.

[edit] ah wait I found them now. My gosh that whole Ziggurat range is stunning

Nicely staged pictures - the Lucid Eye Amazons have quite a Mycenaean look to their dress which is unusual.

Cheers!  That was one of the great attractions. Might fit them into a Trojan War game or something…
