News & Updates
The Trojans are preparing for battle! Fitz has finished all the ranks of the Trojan Spearmen, so we thought we'd take a few pictures and show them off.
Just like our Spartans and Mycenaeans, the Trojan Hoplites will come in a unit of 12 models, with 4 rear rank, 4 middle rank, and 4 front rank models. The cascading arrangement of their spears creates a cool 'wave' effect on the completed unit! These guys are shown without their shields, but the assembled unit will have them, of course! And there will be several shield options to choose from, so you can pick your favorite, or choose different options for each unit to create units with their own flavor!
Please help us spread the word about the upcoming Croc Kickstarter -- we have just over a week to go, the more people who hear about it, the more likely we'll be able to succeed. You can click on the link below to share the story on your Facebook page.

There is less than three weeks to the Croc Kickstarter and we wanted to show you another preview of what’s in store.
These new desktops feature stunning Trojan artwork from Des Hanley. They are available in four different sizes and you can download them for free here
Just in case you missed them, the Spartan and Mycenaean desktops are also available to download for free.
We are putting the final touches to a Kickstarter project that will launch at the beginning of June and run throughout that month. The goal will be to fund the production and printing of the WarGods of Olympus rulebook, and to get the latest miniatures into production, including new Demigods, Trojans, Amazons -- and possibly much more if the campaign is successful!
So how can you help?
Apart from backing the project, we need help spreading the word. The more people we can get to tell their friends, their family, their gaming group, the better chance that we’ll be able to meet our target goal and get the book printed and the miniatures produced. The more success we have with this Kickstarter, the better we’ll be able to make the final product, but we can’t do it without your help.
We would appreciate you forwarding these updates to your friends via social media like Facebook, twitter or blogs, miniature websites and forums that you are a part of, email, word of mouth, smoke signals, every little bit will help!

So without further ado, here is a sneak peak of the first of the miniatures to be featured in the Kickstarter project… the Trojans! Swiped from Fitz’ sculpting desk while he was not looking! There were lots more in progress as well, watch out for more photos here between now and the beginning of June!

Croc Games is pleased to announce that the first 5 Demigod models are back in the Croc Store! These miniatures were briefly released a few years back at some conventions, but due to production problems with the molds the miniatures never went into full production -- until now! The molds have all been remastered, and we've even added a few new weapon options to a couple of the models.
The re-released Demigods include:
WGO-203 Demigod of Zeus
WGO-204 Demigod of Apollo
WGO-210 Demigod of Hades
WGO-211 Demigoddess of Artemis
WGO-205 Phobos, Demigod of Ares
These miniatures are in stock now, and we have plenty of stock for the new year.
And be sure to check back for a new Icons and Artifacts release coming in February!
The ram-headed sons of Khanum are back -- the Khemru! Created by their god on his potter's wheel, the peace-loving Khemru are protectors of all natural things. Though they have sworn to never shed Aegyptian blood, they are not entirely pacifistic, for those who will not submit to the peace of Khanum will be taught a painful lesson with mace and club!
We've put together a new starter set for the Khemru, including all the basics to start a warband -- a unit of warriors, a Master of Words, Priest, Hero, and a Harbinger to lead them all. The Harbinger included in this set has been unavailable for a long time; but we've finally been able to re-master this cool miniature and bring him back into production! He is also available singly for a limited time, for our customers who already own all the Khemru in the Starter Set.
The Khemru were sculpted by Todd Harris, with box art by John Wigley.
These minis are available NOW in the Croc Store -
By popular demand, because our customers asked for it, we have released two new Mycenae shields for the Battle Honors as featured in Croc Tales #7.
