News & Updates
Is your Spartan warband properly equipped to defeat your enemy? To be sure, you have hoplites and peltasts to spare, but is that enough? I'm going to let you in on a little secret - we Spartans do not win our battles by spear and shield alone. A poisoned camp water-supply, enemy messengers never arriving, an opposing commander with a throat cut on the eve of the battle -- these are the works of the mysterious Spartan Kryptes, the Silent Knives!
The Spartan Kryptes is a formidable addition to any Spartan force. Sculpted by Todd Harris, this 28mm assassin is a single piece and cast in lead-free pewter.

While supplies last - if we run our of a specific art print, we may substitute another, as needed.
Note on overseas shipping: because these prints are 8x11, some shipping options require packing them into a box that is smaller than the print. This may require the print to be folded in order to fit into the box. (However, if your order includes a book, you can be assured it will not be folded, as the book box is large enogh for the full print.).
All USA shipping will be shipped flat and unfolded.
The Harpies are available now, in the CROC STORE!
Once the servants of the gods of Olympus, the Harpies are now twisted and evil, craving the taste of human flesh. They have joined the warbands of the monstrous Titans in their war against mankind, snatching warriors from their ranks and dropping them from great heights to die upon the rocky ground!
Halloween Bonus: For each Harpy unit ordered by October 31, we'll include a free Hoplite casualty miniature! You can request a specific City-state casualty to feed to your Harpies by adding your preference to the 'Comments/Requests' field during checkout - or leave it blank, and we'll choose who's on the menu for you!
The Harpies were sculpted by Todd Harris, based on concept art by Des Hanley. The display models were painted and photographed by Felicity FitzPatrick.
The new range of miniatures for Athens is available now, in the CROC STORE!
The warriors of Athens are citizen soldiers: laborers, tradesmen, and nobles, all equals under Athenian law. Long ago, the Athenians overthrew the tyrants that ruled their city and swore never to submit to another; now they rule themselves by common consensus, something they call democracy. Athens maintains a powerful navy, sailing to distant colonies and remote islands, often coming into conflict with the Spartans, who resent the spread of liberty that their emissaries bring.
The Athens miniatures were sculpted by Chris FitzPatrick, based on concept art by Des Hanley. Athens color painting by Paul Jeacock. The display models were painted and photographed by Felicity FitzPatrick.
The new Athens range contains the following packs:
WGO-905 Athenian Warband Starter Set - $74.95
WGO-127 Athenian Captain, with Casualty - $8.95
WGO-128 Athenian Hero, with Armor Rack - $8.95
WGO-319a Athenian Hoplite Unit - Companions of Theseus (12) - $39.95
WGO-319b Athenian Hoplite Unit - Chosen of Nike (12) - $39.95
WGO-319c Athenian Hoplite Unit - Poseidon's Faithful (12) - $39.95
WGO-320 Athenian Peltast Unit (10) - $35.95
WGO-321 Athenian Archer Unit (10) - $35.95

The Athenian Army is on the move - their triremes have set sail from the port of Piraeus and are due to make landfall on August 1, Poseidon willing!
The Croc crew are at the oars, busy casting hundreds of warriors, peltasts, and archers, to join your forces. We've set up a pre-order deal for players who want us to ship a complete warband on the first day, available HERE. This will include an alternate variant of the Athenian Hero with a double-crested helmet (also available for a limited time for Athens players who already have their warbands!) Stay tuned for pictures, coming soon!
Rumor has it that Fitz is sculpting even MORE Athenians, including a chariot and philosopher. Now is a great time to join the forces of democracy!
The Typhon Archer miniature is back in the Croc store!
Back when we started WarGods, Fitz sculpted a few test models of each of the Aegyptus races for playtesting and promoting the game. Once the game was in production, most of these models were expanded with additional poses and command - but a few slipped through the cracks. Several customers have been asking for us to bring back the Typhon archer model, but the mold was lost for many years... but good news! It has at last been found!
We're now made the model available again, both individually and in groups of 10 at the discounted unit price.
For our players who have been waiting for the return of the Minotaurs and Amazon Archer Units - Good news... they are back in stock!
We had to retire these minis late last year, as the molds had worn out. We've now had them remolded, so the minis look better than ever!
You can get yours in the Croc Store:
Minotaurs: OLYMPUS MONSTERS
Our master Artifex gotten a new shipment of metal, and he's been casting up a few of our popular "Icons & Artifacts" miniatures that have been out-of-stock for a while. This range is an assortment of small treasures, objectives, and bits to customize your miniatures and their bases!

Since the Adepticon Special packs were so well-received, we've decided to keep some of the deals in the Croc Store as regular items (the Casualty Pack, Armory of Hephaestus, Warrior Sampler, and Automaton Deal. The prices are slightly more than in the Adepticon sale, but still discounted from their prices as separate items.
We hope everyone is keeping safe and healthy, and getting lots of hobby stuff done!
