Excellent panting.  As for the figures, the Artemis is the best yet, because it seems the most Greek in its simplicity.  The others have too much of modern-day fantasy art about them for my taste - especially Hekate, who appears to be purely a Dark Elf - a nicely sculpted Dark Elf, but not something that seems a product of the imaginations of ancient Thessaly.
Back from the dead, almost.

Yes it looks elfish in a way but I have to disagree, there is so much about Hekate in the mini it simply blew my mind!
Maybe recheck my original posting: http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=76812.msg942575#msg942575

But you are of course right Olympus it NOT historical gaming, it is heroic fantasy gaming with a mythology twist.  :)
That's what makes it so interesting to me.
In addition I just love to paint Fitz sculpts!
cheers and keep on gaming, Agis - https://www.adpublishing.de

Re: Wargods of Olympus - now Pallas Athena
« Reply #66 on: July 25, 2015, 09:49:43 AM »
Pallas Athena joins the ranks of the Gods!




The Goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, mathematics, strength, war strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill in ancient Greek religion and mythology.
Athena is portrayed as a shrewd companion of heroes and is the patron goddess of heroic endeavor. She is the virgin patroness of Athens. The Athenians founded the Parthenon on the Acropolis of her namesake city, Athena Parthenos, in her honor.

The Crocodile miniature is again an incredible good representation of the goddess. Bearing the description above in mind I chose a limited colour palette for her, blue and white. The modern national colours of Greece.

May I ask which colours you used for Hephaestus skin? That's pretty much the look I want for my cyclops, somewhat of an ashen skin, as befits a divine blacksmith (I'm following Hesiod's description of the cylopses, which is pretty much what would later be abscribed to Hephaestus).

Hmm, IIRC I started with MSP (Master Series Paint) Rosy Skin, with some light grey.
Then a wash of Citadel Reikland Flesh Shade.
After that highlights with more and more rosy flesh and a lighter grey.

Just an exercise in old gold.


It is an older Olympus sculpt. Since the recent Kickstarter provided me with a new one, I decided to use this one as a statue.

That's really nice - what is your technique for that?  I can make copper and bronze look right (hurray for jade green washes!) but I can never get gold to look weathered.

Nice gold! I second the request for a solution. Are you going to add a marble effect on the plinth?

Extremely simple:
1 - Undercoat Matt Black
2 - Spay Dupli Color Deco Matt Gold
3 - Apply a good wash of Citadel Agrax Earthshade
Done for gold. maybe some highlight, up to you

For aged gold apply a greenish pigment ( I bought one a couple of years ago in a Venice art supply shop) and fix it with MIG pigment fixer.

Are you going to add a marble effect on the plinth?

Not sure, it is part of a temple, maybe then...
