Greetings,

I have been working on a Ancient Greek Army, and thought it would be easy to spin it off into a warband for Osprey's of Gads and Mortals game as well. In this game, the "gods" are about twice the size of the normal troopers. Since my Greeks are 28mm, I would guess a nice 54mm model would do the trick.

Ideally, I would like the goddess Artemis or Athena to lead my force. Any ideas on a good 54mm model for this purpose?

Also, the Heroes are a bit larger than the regular ranks-and-file, so any suggestions on 32mm Greek heroes would also be great. I imagine Artemis would have Adonis and possibly a giant stag/hart. For Athena, we could use Jason and the Fleece, or a Medusa (the Medusa is available from North Star) Your thoughts on these would be helpful too.

Thanks!

If you don't mind the material, maybe check out the various Reaper Bones giants. Their Male Storm Giant has strong Greco-Roman stylings, and their Yephima, Female Cloud Giant might be close enough for a Greek goddess (though you might want to replace her mace with a bow Artemis).

Mythic Battles Pantheon would be my first choice excellent models with great variety.

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

While the new demigods are nice (I bought Athena & Artemis for my KoW Macedonians), they are only 28mm heroic, so they will not tower over your hoplites as desired.

Death closes all: but something ere the end,
Some work of noble note, may yet be done,
Not unbecoming men that strove with Gods.

These "Halodynes" from Godslayer are 30mm fantasy Classical Greeks, so while too small for deities might serve as mythic heroes such as huge Telamonian Ajax from the Illiad as they are larger than 28mm historical Greek Hoplites. There is also an animated statue which could be used as Talos, and Cerberus.
