We'll have a booth in the vendor hall, packed with minis and with copies of WarGods of Olympus! We even have some of the Leather Edition remaining, and we'll be bringing them too. We'll be running demo events over the course of the weekend, for those who'd like to learn to play WarGods!
The Arsenal of Ares:
The WarGods World Campaign kicks off at AdeptiCon! Bring your 1400-point warband and your Harbinger or Demigod (Fate Rating: 3), and play in two linked battles during one night of fun and excitement.

See you at Adepticon!
Croc Games got its start way back in 2001, and we've been making miniatures for 20 years! To celebrate this milestone, we're going back to where it all began: Aegyptus! Specifically, the Sebeki - the crocodile-headed followers of the god Sobek. Chris FitzPatrick has sculpted a bunch of new miniatures for the Sebeki for WarGods of Aegyptus, such as the formidable "Queen of the Crocodiles" and the "Sebeki Flingers", and even more cool croc-themed models to go along with them. Help Crocodile Games make these new miniatures a reality!
WarGods miniatures are 28mm 'heroic' scale, compatible with the vast majority of tabletop gaming miniatures and scenery available today. In the past, Chris FitzPatrick has designed miniatures for Ral Partha (Advanced Dungeons & Dragons), Games Workshop (Warhammer Fantasy Battle & 40k, Mordheim), and created the Pathfinder metal miniature range for Paizo Publishing. This range of miniatures fits right alongside his past work, and matches them in scale, detail, and animation.
Our miniatures are created in the "Old School" way - an original sculpture is hand-made using a 2-part epoxy putty - this finished sculpt is called a 'green'. We then make a mold from this green to produce pewter miniatures with immaculate detail. Some larger models are produced in resin.
All figures are supplied unpainted and unassembled, with plastic slotted bases included.
The Rise of the Crocodile Queen kickstarter is now live until March 6. Head on over to the Kickstarter Page to become a backer!
From the ruined temples of the island of Crete comes the beautiful and mysterious Mother of Serpents. She carries into battle her two beloved pets, venomous serpents whose bite can kill a man in seconds. The Mother of Serpents is a dangerous foe, shrugging off wounds that would kill mortal men... it is said she can even regenerate severed limbs! But her assistance comes with risk, for she is the servant of an unknown foreign god -- what price will she demand for her loyalty? Dare you add her to your warband?
We've also posted a 2-page excerpt from WarGods of Olympus, featuring the Mother of Serpent's rules and background. You can read up on her here:
The Trojans are staging a counterattack! On the morning before the battle, the devout Trojans made a sacrifice on their War Altar to Zeus, and soon the battle commences. Led by man-killing Hector and his brother Paris, the Trojans wade into battle. Swift Trojan chariots driven by powerful heroes in heavy 'dendra' armor thunder across the dusty plain. The Trojan Seer has foreseen that today's fight will end in victory, but not without cost... the Tragic Hero is doomed to lose his life to win the day!
The Trojan Wave 2 is now available! Included in this release are the following miniatures:
Hector, Prince of Troy
Paris, Prince of Troy
Trojan Seer & Temple Guards
Trojan War Altar
Check them all out HERE.
We’re painting miniatures for “WarGods of Olympus” during the month of October. Join us and get a Limited Edition "Priestess of Eris” event miniature!
How to participate: If you are not already a member, join the WarGods community Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/174096773345919
1. On the pinned Olympus October event thread, introduce yourself and post a photograph of what you’ll be painting. It can be a character, unit, or monster, but it must be a Crocodile Games miniature from our WarGods of Olympus range. The photo must be unpainted to start with, but primed is OK. 2. Be sure to use the hashtag #OlympusOctober on your post. 3. You must post at least 1 update during the month, showing your progress. Be supportive of your fellow Olympians! 4. Fully paint your miniatures to the best of your ability, and post a completed photo by midnight on October 31st.
At the end, all participants who complete the challenge will receive a code redeemable in the Croc Store to add a Priestess of Eris miniature to any order over $10. One miniature per participant please. This is not a contest - let’s just have fun painting some minis, and get ready to battle in the coming year!
*The "Priestess of Eris" was planned as the event miniature for the year of 2020. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic shut down our convention plans, and she was only available at a single event. We’re making her available to everyone online, and her miniature will play an important role in our campaign games planned for 2022. Join the forces of evil and add Eris to your warband - or fight for good and keep the Goddess of Discord safely locked away in your miniature case!
At Croc Games, we love awesome art. ( We're a company founded by an artist after all!). So we've made some of our best art into high-quality prints, featuring paintings by Des Hanley, John Wigley, and Paul Jeacock. The prints are all roughly 8x11", and suitable to hang on your wall or adorn the folder where you keep your army lists!
We'll be including an art print with every Warband deal purchased through the Cro web store. So, if you buy a Sebeki Warband Deal, you'll also get a Sebeki art print, Amazons get an Amazon art print, and so on.
Deals that include an art print are:
WGO-901 - Spartan Warband Starter Deal (art by Des Haney)
WGO-902 - Mycenaean Warband Starter Set (art by John Wigley)

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 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:
