Greetings All

Just seen this, everything is looking excellent, definitely up for proof reading if you need anymore volunteers.

Tapered bases for the horses is an effective method of getting them solidly onto chariot bases, I'm half way through putting one together and ended up removing the tabs and drilling the horses, it is fiddly, time consuming and probably weaker than an integrated base.

Corinthians for the new year sounds awesome.

Cheers

Chris,

I was very excited to receive the Kickstarter e-mail notification about the completion of the Demigod Powers! I'm eager to start reading and trying them out in anticipation of the new rulebook. I'm willing to help out with any playtesting or editing of anything that still remains.

The sooner, the better! I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel...

Respectfully, Kevin

Signal fires spotted, Trojan and Amazon reinforcements dispatched!

Lot's of sculpting the last month, as I've been trying to wrap up the Gates of Troy and get the Amazon Attack (cavalry) underway. The Gates of Troy wave is getting close to completion - now finished are the Chariot and crew, the Seer and Temple Guards, and the War Altar is about half done - just starting on the 2 guards and the Altar Relic itself. Hector, Paris, and the Tragic Hero are all posed out, and the first bits of green have been applied. This wave was a lot more sculpting than I anticipated, the Chariot and War Altar are a lot of components - but they are getting there.

Here are some pictures of the Trojan Seer, and a metal casting of one of the Temple Guards (the second Temple Guard is done too, she can be seen in the 'new greens' box at the bottom.) The Seer is a simple figure, but I think she'll be a lot of fun in the game - her rules are in the Trojan PDF if you guys have not seen them yet!

Trojan Seer

And here's a pic with one of her guards:

Seer and Temple Guard

I've been working out some of the design issues for the Amazon Cavalry on a single figure, so that I don't have to 'explore' while working on the whole unit. The first one is done! There are a few bits I'll change on her design for the rest of them - mainly the cut of her skirt, I think she turned out ok.

Amazon Cavalry

Here is a picture of her from the back, and a good view of her shield.

Amazon Cavalry rear

And now you are asking, "Fitz, will the arms be compatible with the Front Rank Amazons? And the Swordswomen???" Yes indeedy! All the warrior arm-sprues should be interchangeable, so that you can make Cavalry with swords, spears, or even axes (coming soon).

Amazon Cavalry Arm Options

I mentioned a while back that I was considering reworking the bases of the Olympus horses. I did, and now they are on easy-to-glue-on flat integral bases, rather than the slotted tabs. You guys will thank me when it comes to assembling the Chariot, the flat bases make it a lot easier to put onto the mdf chariot base, and they look nicer once flocked. Behold:

New Horse Bases

And last, here's a box of some more parts on the way to the moldmaker. Yes, those are some Titan arms (with the 'claw' mutations) the second Trojan Altar Bearer, the Trojan Chariot Driver, and the second pose of the Temple Guard.

New Greens for January

Thanks for being patient guys! We are getting there!

Here's another one I just finished to go into the mold with the last batch - the Trojan Altar Guard. He's a little beefier than the earlier Trojans, as the guards would be bigger guys than the run-of-the-mill soldier.

There will be a second pose of him too, so he can be placed on either side of the Altar and priest.

Troy Altar Guard 1

Pictured here with the Seer for scale:

Troy Altar Guard, and Seer

His axe is based on ceremonial axes from the Minoan era, I may do the next one with a double-blade design, like these, what do you guys think? Here are some pics:

I like the idea of the guards being armed with the same weapon, save the double-blade for something in the Cretan pirate group. That is just my 2 cents (I usually get change back on my 2 cents worth, so...)

Really like the Guard model, he looks great. But I will agree with the others the two guards should be armed alike.

OK, here's the latest from the sculpting table - the Trojan 'Tragic Hero'.

Since the Seers have foretold of his imminent death, I wanted to try to evoke this on the miniature - tricky, I know. I tried to give him the appearance of standing overlooking a battlefield, with the wind blowing at his back - as if compelling him to face his inevitable fate.

Hope you guys like him!

Now just Hector and Paris to go for the Gates of Troy...

Also, any indication as to when the currently completed models will be available in the online store. Would love to add to my Amazons

Athenians were shipped about 6 months ago. Did you select shipment all at once or as released. I had to change my choice to as released, else I would have to wait until everything I ordered was released. No Corinthians yet.

Chris,

When might the newly updated Olympus Chariot Horses on flat bases be made available to purchase through PayPal Kickstarter Pledge or the Crocodile Games online store? I'd like to get reworking my Spartan chariots ASAP. You also mentioned new MDF chariot bases... where can I purchase those?

I'm SO looking forward to getting everything ready again to play Wargods of Olympus. Is there any chance there will be some previews and demos at GenCon this year?

Kevin, that's a great idea about getting the new horses onto the store ASAP.

I should be picking up the horse master mold this week, and will run it with the final batch of Corinth models next week - and get the production molds made right after - so a few weeks at least, but I'll try to fast-track them if possible.

We have chariot bases onhand, I'll ask Felicity to put them into the croc store this weekend.

We'd love to be at GenCon this year, we should know better in a couple months.

I was under impression no new releases will hit the online store before the Kickstarter is fulfilled entirely. There are To-Tanem slingers ready and something for Anubis waiting for release.

Good news! Todd Harris is back on the project!

Todd has ridden to the rescue, and is helping to take up the slack on the sculpting so I can focus on the last of the rules stuff.

Here are his first new figs - the Cyclopes!

Each of these has a head that is a separate part, and are interchangeable with each other. Also, the belt-gear bits are also separate and interchangeable.

We could not be more pleased with these, and we hope you guys like them too! He's now working on the Harpies, and we are hoping to have the last of the Kickstarter sculpts finished in the next few weeks.

And here they are:

Cyclopes 1 With a Trojan, for scale.

Cyclopes 2 View from the back, showing their belt gear - one with forge equipment, and the other with "lunch", a cow-leg and an amphorae of wine!

Cyclopes 3 Posed with Hephaestus, sorry this one is a little blurry, their heavy footsteps made the camera shake!

Cyclopes 4

Cyclopes 5 This one has their heads swapped!

Chris,

Wow! Those Cyclopes look great! I'm looking forward to the massive conflicts my Titan Hunters are going to have against those monstrosities!

Great job, Todd!

Any update on the new steeds/chariot horses and MDF chariot bases getting added to the online store?

I hope you and Debs make it out to GenCon this year. It seems like we haven't seen Crocodile Games in the Dealer's Room in a very long time

Thanks Kevin!

The horse masters are at the moldmakers, I'll make them available as soon as we get the production molds. They have a big pile of them (most of the Gates of Troy models) at the moment. Hopefully not too long now!

Yeah, we'll be at GenCon, we're going to share a space with Pulp Figures.

Is late pledging still open for the Cyclopes and the mounted amazons? (Can already see the Cyclopes running around yelling nobody is attacking me!)

Yes, I'll be doing a Manhunter - she'll be part of a 3rd wave, along with some more Amazon models - the War Witch, some hero variations, and some axe options for the front rank warriors (instead of spears or swords). We're close to being done with all the KS minis, so hopefully I'll get to work on her before the year is out.

Thanks! Yes, you can still back the Gates of Troy, Amazon Attack, and monsters until we start shipping them.

Good news on the monster front as well - a package arrived this weekend from Todd, and all of the Harpy sculpts are now done - pics coming tomorrow!

A flock of Harpies have descended upon Crocodile Games!

Todd's second batch of Harpies arrived in the mail last week, and I finally found some time on the 4th of July to go out and cast the masters from his first set - now we can show them all off!

I think these look great, slightly taller than man-sized, just large enough to be believable that they could pick up a person in their claws. Hope you guys like these:

I've also finished the last bit for the Troy War Altar.

What I have made is a small shrine, that contains a tiny statue of Athena. It could also be used with any of the other war altars for a Demigoddess of Athena. (We only have a Spartan altar at the moment, but if sales are good we may make the other factions.)

The little statue of Athena inside is meant to be the Palladium. For those who are not familiar with the legends surrounding Troy, it basically goes like this - Zeus was fond of the Trojans, and so he commanded Athena to give them a sacred statue of herself (or sometimes it is said he threw it down from Olympus himself.) So long as the statue remained within the walls of Troy, the city would not fall. During the Trojan war, pesky Odysseus and is buddy Diomedes infiltrated the city and stole the statue, thus opening the way for the city's eventual defeat. Later legends say that it was then carried away by Aeneas as he escaped from the burning city, and he and the remaining Trojans carried it with them until they finally founded the city that would eventually become Rome. I've always loved the story, and so it was fun to sculpt it! It is a bit like an ancient-greek 'ark of the covenant' as shown in the Indiana Jones movies.

Here's a photo from an ancient vase, showing Diomedes stealing the Palladium - it is meant to be small!

Palladium vase

And so without further ado, I give you... the Palladium! :D

Trojan War Altar

The shrine looks a little funny, as it is made with several different types of putty and plasticard - that's why it has all the different colors. The cast part should look better, all in one color.

It is likely that this element will have to be made in resin, as the Beesputty structure probably could not handle vulcanization.

Here's a closer view, so you can just see the little Athena inside the shrine:

Wow, the Harpies as well as the War Altar - great stuff

I have just spent money on the Gates of Troy and now seeing this I have to put some more aside for he next waves

Blimey you're having a productive summer, bravo!

All looks excellent, be interested to see the war altars for the remaining factions someday.

Harpies look great, as do the cyclops, looking forward to seeing the hydra, be intrigued to see if you go with resin?

Looks great. And the Kickstarter is looking to be fulfilled before Christmas. Once it is done you need to check what models are missing for Aegyptus and Olympus, plan a sculpting schedule and with half of this done Run a 'gap filling' kickstarter.

Having thought long and hard about this. I would not support another kickstarter unless the stated delivery times are more realistic. I also don't have the disposable income anymore but that is beside the point.

Agree with Hazpak here - not only that I no longer have the disposable income, but this has dragged on a lot longer than originally anticipated. Unfortunately I think part of the problem is that it got bigger than originally planned.

I've noticed a shift in miniatures kickstarters since this one ran, with many more picking a limited number of figures and stopping adding goals when they hit that point, also running them for much shorter periods (I've seen a few for a single figure running as 24 hours projects, or 3-7 figures as 1 week projects).

Hey guys,

Thanks for all the comments guys, and for the fair criticisms. Rest assured, we're not planning another Kickstarter at the moment - right now all of our energies are devoted to finishing up the last elements for this one.

Once the last of our rewards have shipped, we'll sit down and do a wrap-up, to figure out what exactly went awry and how we can do better next time. It is plain to see that we got overextended on this, so if we do do future programs they will certainly be more modest, with goals that can be achieved in a much shorter time. But that's a conversation for later, we still have plenty of work to do on this one, even if the end is in sight.

Back on the subject of the minis - I've just finished cleaning all the masters for the Gates of Troy wave production molds, as well as the Mycenaean Chariot, and the first mold of the monsters. I'm hoping to be able to start shipping the Gates of Troy in August, with the Monsters and Mycenaean Chariot right after - assuming we don't have big delays on the moldmaking (fingers crossed.) I should have a better idea about them later this week.

Next up on the sculpting table is Paris and the Hydra. No pictures to show yet, but they are underway.

Chris,

With GenCon only several days away, I'm very anxious to get my hands on some of the miniatures that I didn't order through the Kickstarter campaign. What do you plan on having with you for purchase at the Croc booth this year?

Any special offers?

I look forward to seeing you.

Thanks!

Respectfully, Kevin

Great work as always! I for one am very happy with the miniatures i got from the Kickstarter and would seriously check another Kickstarter if you did one. I can only speak for myself but the sheer quality of what you do makes the waiting well worth it! :) I would love an art book of your worlds but that is just me being selfish! Keep up the top work guys & gals. : )

I absolutely agree. Once this ks is fulfilled Please plan a 'gap filling' kickstarter, with small targets reachable in half a year. Anti-matter do it this way, for example.

OK, with some assistance from Todd Harris, the Gates of Troy wave sculpting is complete!

As I have had my hands full working on the book, I had Todd do the last Trojan mini - Paris, prince of Troy. The figure was based on John Wigley's concept art, and Todd did a great job matching the Trojans I've already sculpted.

Paris, prince of Troy green

Here's a picture showing Hector next to Todd's Paris - brothers reunited after only 3200 years!

Hector and Paris, size comparison

His green is already at the master-mold makers, so hopefully we'll be able to put the Gates of Troy wave into production as soon as possible. I'm currently working on a mounted version of Penthesilea, and after that the last mini - the Hydra. Hope to have some decent pictures of Penny sometime next week.

The last amazon is complete!

Just put the finishing touches on the mounted version of Penthesilea. I based her pose on a painting by a Franz Stuck, a german painter from the 1800s:

Amazon and Centaur by Franz Stuck

Before anyone asks, no I'm not adding any tack to the horse - she rides a magical horse (a bit like Shadowfax, in LotR) that was a gift to her from the North Wind, and it does not need any!

The rider is likely going to come attached to the horse, her javelin hand and her cape are separate pieces. Here she is, hope you guys like her:

The second labor of Hercules is complete - the Hydra is defeated!

This was quite a departure for me, as I don't typically sculpt a lot of 'monsters'. It went smoothly at first, I sculpted the body (the grey parts) in Beesputty, a type of sculpting clay that is better for doing large, smooth objects, but then started to have a lot of trouble with the finished parts cracking, especially along the necks. So the last week was spent fixing my mistakes, and making a suitable base for it to sit on.

The base will have some additional details (like some more rocks, maybe a few bones from past victims), but I thought you guys would be eager to see it rather than waiting for the last fiddly bits.

With this one being finished, that is the last of all the funded Kickstarter minis. I may yet have a couple Amazon parts to correct for molding, but all the sculpts are now in the bag!

Huzzah!

Amazing work! Definitely looking forward to adding this to my collection!

Speaking of Hercules... perhaps he and his band can make it onto your sculpting table next year?

Wishful thinking aside, congratulations on wrapping up the sculpting on your first Kickstarter! I know that it ran quite a bit longer than expected, but I am sure that I am not alone in saying that the wait has been well worth it! There's naught but molding, casting, sorting, packing and fulfillment left to go - sounds like an action packed Q4!

Yes guys, the sculpting on ALL of the models is complete!

I'm picking up the final master mold tomorrow, and I'll be casting the masters over the weekend, and our moldmakers are working on the last of the production molds this month (we have about 20 to go). Hopefully all molds will be done by the end of the month, and we'll be shipping minis before Christmas.

The only holdup is the Hydra, as it is a resin piece it may take a little longer to get molds and castings back.

We are working on the book as well, there are artist and freelance writers working on some elements while I'm taking care of the last production stuff, so it is not standing still. As soon as the last production stuff is finished I'll be able to devote myself to it full time. Things are happening faster now that I'm no longer spending all day sculpting.

Two things

If we already paid for a Trojan chariot are we going to be able to pledge for a second one now that there are two variants?

So while searching for images of War Gods figs on the net. I came across two greens.One of a Spartan archer captain and one Mycenean archer captain. Why aren't these available on the store? All the other figs for those factions are. Pete

Hey guys,

We've been shipping the Gates of Troy, Amazon Attack, and all the monsters except the Hydra for the last couple weeks. The most of the UK and Europe have shipped and were just getting into the US addresses now. Backers who have a Hydra will have a few more weeks yet, as that is the last mini and it is still being molded. Hopefully soon!

We're planning a complete update for Friday through the Kisckstarter.

We're working on the book as well, waiting on some overdue art to finish up the layout, and painting, painting, and more painting for the galleries. It is coming!

I'll have more info on Friday, with some cool photos to show off.

I've asked this before If we pledged for a Trojan chariot how do we pick which version we want? Alternatively how do I get both? Is the Mycenean chariot also done?

There is currently only the 1 version of the Trojan Chariot.

There are 2 versions of the Mycenaean Chariot - the default is the one with the twin lions on the front, and there is a second, more 'generic' looking version that looks to be made of wicker.

If you want the wicker chariot substituted for either, just let us know. It could be crewed by anyone, and we could supply the driver/Hero of your choice.

The new Titan variants have not been made into production molds, yet - pretty much all of our moldmaker's time has been taken up by the Kickstarter minis.

If you only want a set or 2 I could get you one of the test runs from the master mold, we have a few spare.

I hope to get them into production later in the year, when the KS stuff is all wrapped up.

Great news Chris. What is your current estimation on finishing the book? Would those titan heads be released along slingers for To-Tanem and Anubi this year?

We’re the new titan mutations in those molds by any chance and can I add them to my order?
The new Titan variants have not been made into production molds, yet - pretty much all of our moldmaker's time has been taken up by the Kickstarter minis.

If you only want a set or 2 I could get you one of the test runs from the master mold, we have a few spare.

I hope to get them into production later in the year, when the KS stuff is all wrapped up.

omg yes i'll take a set or 2

(just what does a set contain?)

Since most visitors don't scroll down much anymore I've posted some questions in the Olympus sections (a new member has too)

Any thoughts on these would be appreciated

Just catching up on this thread guys, bear with me. Lots of painting, editing, and layout going on the last couple weeks, so I've not been on the sculpting thread!

Blaze, we're trying to have everything done in the next couple months, so we can have the books back from the printer this summer. Lots still to do, but it is getting done!

As for the Titans, Anubi, Totanem, etc - those are lower priority at the moment, sorry! To get them released would slow down the book, etc, so they are waiting until after.

Amazon Attack, Gates of Troy, and all the monsters - Hydra, Cyclopes, Harpies. All are shipping now.

We are still sending out shipping confirmations for UK, Europe, and overseas, but the last of those should be going out this week.

US backers should have gotten their shipping confirmations by now - if not, please send us a friendly email and we'll track it down for you.

The Eater of the Dead theoretically could exist in Hellas, but does not hold much power there. The dead of Hellas are the domain of Hades, and their burial customs are different - their dead are not embalmed, and so do not last very long, even if animated. So, the Necromancers go to places with better pickings!

Yes, GoT are shipping to US backers now, unless they specifically asked to wait to ship with the book.

I would prefer people got their minis now, so they can get on with the painting, but we do what we are told! :)

I received the last of my miniatures on Saturday (well, they arrived on Wednesday, but Saturday was the first day I could get to the PO Box to pick them up).

Very happy with what I've received, despite the delays, I suppose I now need to 1) Sculpt bases for my Amazon Cavalry; 2) Create Moulds for Amazon Cavalry (infantry moulds already made) 3) Cast bases for the Amazons; 4) Sculpt bases for Athenians/Corinthians; 5) Create moulds for Athenian/Corinthian bases; 6) Cast bases for Athenians/Corinthians; 7) assemble & paint...

Ok, so just a bit of work to do with the....um....200+ minis that I received from this project...

Hoping that we'll have the rulebook before I finish the models

Chris,

I loved the PDF previews of the campaign pages from the rule book! Of course, now it just makes me even more impatient for it’s release...

I did notice a couple of spelling and grammatical errors while reading through it. Are you looking for mistakes that might have slipped through the initial edit?

Fantastic work! I’m overly anxious!

Respectfully, Kevin

Hey guys,

Sorry about the lack of posts on this thread - after I finished the last of the sculpts, I've not been back to update it (since they are all done!)

We've been very busy laying out and editing the book, and we've had a couple of our customers with a critical eye helping to catch all of our mistakes. We're at about 85% completion of the text and layout, so it should not be too much longer.

We are getting very close to completion. Page count has now reached 314 pages, and I hope to be able to share a 'beta' draft for players very soon. Please bear with us a little longer.

We have a Kickstarter update going up tomorrow as well, with the much-requested rules for the Amazon Cavalry.

On page 242, the Titan Slaves entry it is written a unit of Slaves allowed you to get 2 masters or a single monster option. On the monster entries it is written a monster unit may be chosen in place of a Titan Master.

So, does a Slave unit allow you two monster Units, or one Slave and one monster Unit? Or either 1-2 Masters or one monster unit?

If I have revealed too much, please delete the post.

Ok, thanks. So lets change the Slaves' "Restriction" text to:

Restrictions A Titan Warband may purchase as many units of Titan Slaves as the player desires. Each unit of Slaves allows the warband to include 2 Titan Masters or monster options (Harpies, Spawn of Chimera, or a Hydra).

In the Gifts of Hermes section on page 106, it says '10. Weapon of the Gods: Winged Sandals' - presumably this should say 'Gift of the Gods' as it does in the corresponding entry for all of the other Gods.

not sure if this is intended or not... the war witch and crones are listed as having light armour (ar3) and the description says light armour (heavy robes) heavy robes in Ægyptus counting as medium armour /ar4

Assuming this isn't a typo as it's a bit contradictory to other instances of armour, can we possibly change the name to something new for consistancy perhaps?

I think they've used the term light armour to make it clear that it isn't metal armour, i think we could leave it just saying Heave Robes (AR3)

Just working through my warband for Cancon and came across a couple of minor errors in the beta draft

In the Gifts of Hephaestus section on page 101 under Dwarfism
It reads"...adds 1 point to his Disciple Rating..."
I'm assuming its meant to be to his Discipline Rating

Under Warband Creation, Allied City-States, pg 118, Amazons
It reads "An Amazon warband will never in include..."
The extra in should be removed

Got them, thanks!

I'm working on clearing up the Amazon crone armor, as you guys suggested, the 'heavy robes' was meant as an indication that it was non-metal armor, not really a classification itself.

elpasopete, Xerxes is something of a problem character, as he was created for our Wrath of the Titans book that was planned for 2008, but we were never able to publish it. Xerxes would require several pages of text for his background and powers, and I'm not sure we can fit him into the book (as the page count is now over 330!)

Were you a Kickstarter backer? It is viewable for backers in the most recent update.

I was not a backer, and am unsure how to back now.

Also notices on the same page as above in the first paragraph for the babylon, empire of the god kings it says The region teems with wildlife and the soil pro- vides rich harvests for its people, so it is no wonder that many their cities are older than men

Should read The region teems with wildlife and the soil pro- vides rich harvests for its people, so it is no wonder that many of their cities are older than men

Preview 3 issues so far..

"page 23" 2nd paragraph last sentance given below is a profile of a human warrior armed with sword and shield

the profile then shows a spartan hoplite with a spear and shield and a damage modifier of 2 and an armor rating of 4 (hard 2) dm should be 1 armor rating with that equipment should only be 2 (hard 2) sentance above should read spear and shield not sword and shield

"page 23" paragraph 7 below is given the complete profile, including point value, of a spartan hoplite armed with sword and shield

the profile then shows equipment of just a spear and shield but shows an armor rating of 4 (hard 2) again with that equipment the save should read 2 (hard 2) the above sentance should read spea and shield not sword and shield.

"page 26" the shield entry profile reads damage modifier +2 (hard) it should read armor rating: +2 (hard)

Hi guys

Just a quick question as to when the other kickstarter items, like the amazon cavalry will be available on the webstore.

Guys- Crock Games had a booth at Historicon last week. Chris said he plans to do final editing in the next two weeks and then send the file to the printers. He estimates two months for printing/binding/shipping to Indy.

thought you could use an update.

Something new- He said he may put together a compendium of the info in CrockTails. Scarab Ogres, Necropolid Guard, etc. But not until the Olympus book is published. He may do a smaller Kick Starter to pay for printing.

See you at Fall-In
