I pledged high in the KS and have to say that my trust in Fitz 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.

Bull Automatons

Taurandron (Minotaur, a huge 7cm big “mini”) and Khalkotaur (a mechanical Bull)

Really nice! But I have to ask, why the round bases? What are you using them for? Not Wargods?

To be honest - I really, really dislike square bases... And yes, it might even be that I am not playing with them in the Wargods system. The shame is that the game is not really established here...

I am however planning to use the minis with square movement trays, so in a way I can achieve the best of both worlds.

And more... Burnt some midnight oil and finished Hephaestus in two days. (Do you also experience this? Some minis are on the table for years, while others are assembled and painted within hours or days?)

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!

And a group shot:

Below some more Automatons, the Owl (Aurabubos) and Hound (Kynoton). Both are as nice as the other two Automatons and real treat to paint.

And the next God - [b]Hekate[/b] 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.

Two more Automatons, Two Hoplite Automatons. Again gorgeous miniatures that came with separate heads and choice of armament, either a spear or sword.

And a test of colours on the 1st Amazon. I wanted a coherent look with Hekate.

Bull Automatons Dionysus and a Satyr from the Olympus range

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.

Bull Automatons Dionysus, Hekate and Hephaestus
