Agis Page of miniature painting and gaming - Olympus


Agis est de retour avec des peinture d'Olympus qui dépotent !!

Wargods of Olympus

Dionysus, Hekate, Artemis and Hephaestus

Crocodiles ambitious project to offer a second game line. Teemed around the classical Greek Gods and Mythology. I received some preview minis back in 2003 or 2004. In 2013 they restarted the whole endeavour and funded their successful Kickstarter.
I pledged high and have to say that my trust in Fit and his crew was not misplaced, high quality miniatures as expected. The first I painted of the new minis are two of the equally huge and fantastic Automatons.
Taurandron (Miniature, a huge 7 cm big "mini") and Khalkotaur (a mechanical Bull)
Hephaestus - the Greek god of blacksmiths, craftsmen, artisans, sculptors, metals, metallurgy, fire and volcanoes. Hephaestus' Roman equivalent is Vulcan. In Greek mythology, Hephaestus was the son of Zeus and Hera, the king and queen of the gods.
As a smithing god, Hephaestus made all the weapons of the gods in Olympus and crafted much of the magnificent equipment of the gods, and almost any finely wrought metalwork imbued with powers that appears in Greek myth is said to have been forged by Hephaestus. Hephaestus also built automatons of metal to work for him.
The Hephaestus miniature is a stunning work, fitting in style to the Automatons; consequently I painted him in a very similar way as the two Automatons. And being the god of metalwork I gave him a metal laurel...
The mini is highly detailed. The most impressive detail for me was the small battle scene on his right shoulder guard. Two warriors are fighting a centaur!
Below some more Automatons, the Owl (Aurabubos) and Hound (Kynoton). Both are as nice as the other two Automatons and real treat to paint.

Below some more Automatons, Two Hoplite Automatons. Again gorgeous miniatures that came with separate heads and choice of armament, either a spear or sword.
Artemis - one of the most widely venerated of the Ancient Greek deities. Her Roman equivalent is Diana. Homer refers to her as Artemis Agrotera, Potnia Theron: "Artemis of the wildland, Mistress of Animals".
In the classical period of Greek mythology, Artemis was often described as the daughter of Zeus and Leto, and the twin sister of Apollo. She was the Hellenic goddess of the hunt, wild animals, wilderness, childbirth, virginity and protector of young girls, bringing and relieving disease in women; she often was depicted as a huntress carrying a bow and arrows. The deer and the cypress were sacred to her.
The Crocodile Games miniature is again flawless, a very simple and elegant miniature, I tried hard to give the sculpt credit.
Hekate - The goddess in Greek religion and mythology, most often shown holding two torches or a key and in later periods depicted in triple form. She was associated with dogs, light, the moon, magic, witchcraft, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, necromancy, and sorcery.
Colours associated with her: Black, orange, yellow-orange, and red-orange.
Gems and Metals: Sapphire, silver, gold, moonstone, black tourmaline, black onyx, hematite, smoky quartz and any stone that is dark or luminous.
The sculpt is reflecting the symbols of Hekate very nicely, you can really see that a lot of thought was put into the miniature. Gemstones, moon symbols and the staff is showing the triple woman form. Consequently I decided to use mostly dark colours and sapphire gem colours.
The mini is nearly as big as Hephaestus, nearly a head taller as any of the Amazon sculpts.
A test of colours on the 1st Amazon. I wanted a coherent look with Hekate.
Dionysus - Dionysus - The god of the grape harvest, winemaking and wine, of ritual madness, fertility,theatre and religious ecstasy in Greek mythology. Alcohol, especially wine, played an important role in Greek culture with Dionysus being an important reason for this life style.
The Crocodile miniature is again an incredible nice and faithful representation of Dionysus, the wine leafs, the goblet full of wine and the cheerful face bring him "to life". I chose a lighter colour palette for him.
