Anyway, since our participation game for next year's Tactica show has been confirmed, I think it's admissible to provide my loyal readers with an appetiser.
First off, sort of a scheme tester:
As you might notice, it's one of Immortal's plastic hoplites. The colours might also give a hint, what we're aiming at. Rest assured, here comes the real deal:
If you don't recognise the models: These are three Argonauts, taken from Foundry's Greek Mythology range. Excellent sculpts, very evocative and quite easy to paint. Their equipment is loosely based on costumes used in the old Harryhausen movie featuring "Jason and the Argonauts". And that's where the inspiration for our gaming project originally came from.
So, here you have it: A few mates and I are staging a small skirmish campaign set in Greek mythology. Players will have to find (and fight, of course!) their way to the Golden Fleece. Many more models still to come. I'll give a few further insights in due course - but if you can, please visit us in Hamburg!
