Only one week until GenCon Indy, and Croc Games will be there. We'll be sharing space with our friends at the Pulp Figures booth, #3041, Hall G.
We'll have convention specials, new miniatures for sale, and previews from the upcoming rulebook to check out. And lots of painted display miniatures and terrain to see.
If you'll be in Indy, be sure to stop by and say hello!
We are happy to announce that the Hydra is now in-stock and available for purchase!
The Hydra miniature was sculpted by Chris FitzPatrick, and measures roughly 5.5 inches long (or about 140mm). It is a multi-part resin kit, and contains 5 heads, 1 body, 2 legs, 1 tail, 1 resin scenic base, and 1 laser-cut wood gaming base. It was molded and cast by the experts at On the Lamb Games, and they did a great job capturing the serpentine detail of the original sculpt. The miniature is supplied unpainted, and require some assembly.
You can get yours now, in the Croc Online Store.
We also have a downloadable PDF of the Hydra rules for WarGods of Olympus, available HERE.
The above photo shows the size of the Hydra next to a 28mm miniature.
Oh yeah, do you need a Golden Fleece for your Hydra to guard? We have one of those too!
The Golden Fleece is also available HERE.
We are happy to announce that our Cyclopes are in-stock, and now available for purchase!
The Cyclopes miniatures were sculpted by Todd Harris, and the display models painted by Felicity FitzPatrick. Each model is a little over 3" tall, making them about 18 feet tall (if the were real - they are not, of course!). The head/neck joint of each Cyclops is the same, so you could put each head on either body. Also, each Cyclops has a separate bit hanging from his belt - one has a huge hammer and tongs, for helping Hephaestus at his forge, the other has a big jug of wine and the leg of a slow-moving farm animal... in other words, lunch! Each of these belt ornaments have a universal connection, and so they be swapped onto the other Cyclops if you like. So, collectors who like lots of variety can make 4 different Cyclopes by swapping their heads and gear around!
Each is a resin and pewter model supplied with a laser-cut wood base. The resin components were cast by our friends at "On the Lamb" games, and they did a super job capturing the detail and nuance of Todd's original sculpture. The miniatures are supplied unpainted, and require some assembly.
You can get yours now, in the Croc Online Store.
We also have a downloadable PDF of the Cyclops rules for WarGods of Olympus, available HERE.
The above photo shows how tall the Cyclopes are compared to a 28mm miniature. We think the unlucky Trojan may be in a spot of trouble!
This model is one of the largest figures that we produce, nearly a pound of metal and lots of parts to assemble. We've always wanted to be able to sell it for a better price, and to make it easier to assemble, so we've teamed up with On The Lamb Games (specialists on resin production) to produce an improved model - made in high-quality resin.
What did we do differently with this version? The new Snowbeast has been remastered from Ben Siens's original sculpture, but is now lighter, less expensive, and with fewer pieces to assemble. The body/chest area has now been made into one single piece, rather than 2 parts that were difficult to glue, and inevitably ended up with gaps that had to be filled with putty. The new model fits together much easier! What's more, the resin castings actually have less distortion than the earlier metal castings. And did we mention that it is now less expensive? We're now able to sell this giant model for $59.95, that is $15 less than the old price of the metal casting.
The Wendigo Summoner model is still included, and he still has a metal body - but his horn is now in resin. Because the resin is a little lighter than the metal, the Summoner is now less top-heavy, so he'll stay on his feet when the Snowbeast stomps around, shaking the table!
The new Snowbeast is available HERE.

At last, our new range of Amazons is available now, in the CROC STORE!
When we set out to design our new range of Amazons for WarGods, we wanted to make sure they were special. They needed to look beautiful, with a hint of wildness and danger about them. We wanted to make sure that they were equipped to take on any man in a fair fight... our Amazons wear bronze and leather armor over the parts of the body you need to protect -- you'll find no high-heels or chainmail bikinis here! We also wanted them to grounded in reality, and so ours take inspirations from ancient greek hoplites, scythian tribesmen, hollywood, and all blended together to with a subtle exaggeration to give them that 'WarGods' look. We think these women warriors are ready to take on any opponents! The miniatures are based on concept art by Des Hanley, sculpted by Chris FitzPatrick, and painted by D Felicity FitzPatrick.
The new Amazon range contains the following packs:
WGO-904 Amazon Warband Starter Set - $74.95
WGO-118 Amazon Captain, with Casualty - $8.95
WGO-119 Amazon Hero, with Armor Rack - $8.95
WGO-313a Amazon Warrior Unit - Spear Sisters (12) - $39.95
WGO-313b Amazon Warrior Unit - Horse Widows (12) - $39.95
WGO-313c Amazon Warrior Unit - Red Hands (12) - $39.95
WGO-315 Amazon Archer Unit (10) - $35.95
WGO-314 Amazon Peltast Unit (10) - $35.95

Still want more? Just wait - Fitz is just finishing up the sculpting on the next wave of Amazons, including mounted archers, armored cavalry, and a mounted version of Queen Penthesilea! We'll be showing them all off in the next few weeks, with pre-order details to follow.
The Stone Colossus has always been a tricky model for us - at over 5 inches tall and made of solid metal, the production cost was extremely high. Not to mention, it was difficult to assemble, and more than a little top-heavy once put together. Well, at last we have found a solution that we are happy with - we have partnered with On The Lamb Games (experts at resin miniature production) to make an improved version of the original sculpt.
So what is different? The new Colossus has been remastered from Jeff Wilhelm's original sculpture, but is now lighter, less expensive, and with less pieces to assemble! We've made the feet a permanent connection to the base, and also connected the model at the waist - this means that the finished model on the tabletop will be MUCH more durable. For those who are worried about the detail, the moldmaker did a superb job mastering the sculpture, and the resin castings actually have less distortion than the earlier metal castings. And did we mention that it is now less expensive? We're now able to sell this for $49.95, that is $10 less than the metal casting.
For those who still want a metal casting, we do have a few remaining in the store, but once they are gone then the metal version of the model will be permanently retired.
The new Stone Colossus is available HERE.

Croc Games has been busy for the last month sending out the remaining Corinth miniatures to our Kickstarter backers, and we'll be closing the late Paypal Pledging for this wave on April 1st.

Note, these are ready to ship now - all orders we receive before the 1st of April will ship during the first week of April.
The Corinth Warband deal contains: Warband Starter Set (12 Warriors, Herald, Musician, 2 Honor Guards, Bellerophon the King of Corinth) Archer Unit (12 Archers) Peltast Unit (12 Peltasts) Hero with Armor Rack Captain and Casualty Kickstarter exclusives: Bronze owl, Titan Hunter, Helen of Troy, and Oracle of Delphi. -that's 49 miniatures total, for $170, plus shipping.

Or, we can be contacted via email or Facebook, and we can send a Paypal invoice for anything you need.
As you may be aware over the past several months, a few people have been experiencing issues accessing the Crocodile Games online store and Kickstarter PayPal page from select Mac OS and browsers. You may also have experienced this elsewhere on the web.
We now have an explanation for this from our web hosting service and this is what they said: "Lion is too old and does not support TLS 1.1 or greater. You will need to upgrade to a newer operating system or use a third party client. Firefox should work on OS X if it is really the latest version, but it may be using the OS X SSL/TLS library. Your browsers will stop working on major ecommerce sites in the very near future when TLS1.0 is disabled on those sites."
Our Awesome Webmaster explained this to us in plain English, as it didn't make much sense - "Basically website encryption is being upgraded and the older OS's and Browsers don't have the necessary support for this newer encryption."
So if you are running into this issue, it’s probably time to upgrade to the latest version of your Operating System and/or Internet web browser.
So, we hope that this helps shine light on the mystery of the sporadic access.
Thanks for your support, Chris and D. Felicity Fitzpatrick
Croc Games is off to Historicon!
We've packed the truck with boxes and boxes of WarGods minis, the the house-sitter has arrived, and we're heading to Virginia.
We'll have a very small number of Amazons and Automaton miniature sets available for sale, leftovers from the Kickstarter fulfillment. We don't expect these to last long, so if you are attending the show and want to get some before their retail release next year, be sure to stop by the booth early!
Debs has just finished painting up the Trojan and Amazon warbands, and the Automaton minis as well - we'll have these on display in the case. Check out the photos for a few previews!
We hope to see you there!
