Now that the Amazons have made it into the Croc store, some customers have asked for some larger photos. Unfortunately, the Croc online store only shows the photos about 410 pixels wide, which is ok for single figures, but the units really suffer. So, here are some bigger pics, feel free to link or share any of these with your friends!

Also, if you have painted up some of your own Amazons, and want to show them off, post them here - we-d love to see them!

Some notes about Amazon warrior model placement:

The Amazon warrior units contain 12 models - 4 rear rank, 4 middle rank, and 4 front rank. The models are designed so that when arranged correctly, the unit should have a forward sweep of their spears, almost like a wave with the rear models holding their spears upright, the middle with a slight incline, and the front rank at a 45-degree incline or thrusting forward, as if attacking. This gives the unit a nice feeling of forward momentum on the tabletop.

For the front rank models, their right arms are separarate pieces. Each unit contains a total of 4 of these spear arms, 2 thrusting and 2 advancing. Here are some photos showing their differences. First, the 'advancing' arm option:

Advancing front rank arm option

Advancing front rank

Alternately, the front rank models may be given the 'thrusting' arm option:

Thrusting arm option

Thrusting front rank

It is important to remember that each unit contains 2 or each arm option. If you want all 'thrusting' or 'advancing' arms for your unit, be sure to specify this on the comments section of your order during checkout, and we'll make the correct substitutions.

Great job on your Amazons, Thomas! That's a nice color-scheme, and I really love your backdrop!
