 Not sure about a European distributor.They are based in Poland which might be good for postage.Some of the deals look good.

 Here is another link for scenery which will be usefull for Olympus and other settings too.

 There is a thing which lets you change the currency on the shop site.

 Some of the other sets are nice too.

Wargods Olympus arrived!


The Kickstarter wrapped up in June 2013. I received the rulebook 2 days ago (more or less 7 years later). The wait was worth every day! And I really mean it.

It is not only a book, it is a tome – a tome of knowledge on Greek mythology sprinkled with fantasy elements, a very solid and tested ruleset, a great section of painted miniatures (it is a miniature games after all) and so much more.
If you are only the slightest interested in Greek mythology or minis based on it, THIS is your book.


Here is what On Table Top said:
“Years in the making, this 350-page hardcover rulebook is lavishly illustrated by Des Hanley, Paul Jeacock, John Wigley, Piya Wannachaiwong, and Tony Hough, and features inspiring painted miniatures and scenery by some of the best hobbyists in the business. It includes a set of Command Counters for both Sparta and the Titans.
WarGods of Olympus is fully compatible and set in the same world as WarGods of Aegyptus. Yes, both games can be played together, pitting your warband of Greek hoplites against the Aegyptian Children of the Gods."

I especially loved the part of “features inspiring painted miniatures and scenery by some of the best hobbyists”. This seem to include me, since throughout the book some of my painted Olympus minis showed up! What can I say, I love the book and I am totally proud to have contributed in small way to it!

That does look like a cracking book, well worth owning even if you do not intend to play the game.
 8) 8)

Best hobbyists...?
I agree, the figures that I have seen you paint certainly justify the tag.
