News & Updates
After a long absence, we are happy to announce that the Hydra is back 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. The miniature has been molded and cast by the resin experts at Trenchworx, 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.
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.
Croc Games is ready for GenCon - we've loaded the truck with more goodies than a Basti Camp-Wagon, and we've masked-up like Warhawks and Necropolis Guard! Come find us at the show!

We'll be having a convention special on all miniatures, buy 4 packs and get a 5th pack for free! We'll also have the WarGods of Olympus rulebook available in both standard Hardcover and also the 'rich Corinthian Leather' Collector's Edition! And there will be lots of painted display miniatures and terrain to see.
There will also be a WarGods event at 6:00 on Saturday night - "Showdown in the Garden of Discord". Bring your WarGods warband and join in the mayhem, or just stop by and watch the carnage!
If you'll be in Indy, be sure to stop by and say hello!
We’ve held off as long as possible - it has been many years since we’ve had to raise prices. However, the last year has seen the cost of casting metal skyrocket, and we have no alternative to raise the prices of miniatures accordingly. Orders placed before Friday July 15 will be filled at the current prices. Thanks to everyone for your understanding on this.
Chris & Felicity Crocodile Games
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!
Is your Spartan warband properly equipped to defeat your enemy? To be sure, you have hoplites and peltasts to spare, but is that enough? I'm going to let you in on a little secret - we Spartans do not win our battles by spear and shield alone. A poisoned camp water-supply, enemy messengers never arriving, an opposing commander with a throat cut on the eve of the battle -- these are the works of the mysterious Spartan Kryptes, the Silent Knives!
The Spartan Kryptes is a formidable addition to any Spartan force. Sculpted by Todd Harris, this 28mm assassin is a single piece and cast in lead-free pewter.

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 Harpies are available now, in the CROC STORE!
Once the servants of the gods of Olympus, the Harpies are now twisted and evil, craving the taste of human flesh. They have joined the warbands of the monstrous Titans in their war against mankind, snatching warriors from their ranks and dropping them from great heights to die upon the rocky ground!
Halloween Bonus: For each Harpy unit ordered by October 31, we'll include a free Hoplite casualty miniature! You can request a specific City-state casualty to feed to your Harpies by adding your preference to the 'Comments/Requests' field during checkout - or leave it blank, and we'll choose who's on the menu for you!
The Harpies were sculpted by Todd Harris, based on concept art by Des Hanley. The display models were painted and photographed by Felicity FitzPatrick.
