Since the Adepticon Special packs were so well-received, we've decided to keep some of the deals in the Croc Store as regular items (the Casualty Pack, Armory of Hephaestus, Warrior Sampler, and Automaton Deal. The prices are slightly more than in the Adepticon sale, but still discounted from their prices as separate items.
We hope everyone is keeping safe and healthy, and getting lots of hobby stuff done!

The first 116 books have been packed, as well as 4 cases of books for game stores, and all these are shipping on Monday morning. We have LOTS more to go, but the process has begun, and we'll be packing and shipping these all week.
A big 'thank you' to the impromptu weekend packing team, including Christopher Farnsley, Brain Roe, Jordan Fisher, and of course Fitz & Felicity!
Three of five pallets of books!
Fitz hauls in the last of the pallets (at least this one was a small one!
The packing team arrives (Felicity, Fitz, Jordan, Brian, and Farnz), and each poses with their favorite page of the book! #GeekFamous"
Time to get to work - Felicity starts making labels!
The packing line gets cracking!
Jordan takes a moment to admire the luxury of "rich, Corinthian leather!"
Please do not distract Brian while he is working the chopper!
Felicity loves this part - the final boxing of the books!
The day's progress - books packed for backers, ready for shipping!
We've added "Media Mail" as the default shipping for books, for all orders shipping to USA addresses. This means that for most of our books (including the new WarGods of Olympus) we can ship them to US customers for less than $8! But note: Media Mail only allows printed material, so if miniatures are added to a book order, it will automatically revert to Priority Mail shipping (which is a bit more, but for most US address under $15.)
Now's a great time to order those books you've been thinking about, and pre-order WarGods of Olympus!
Today we received a package from our printer, containing two very exciting things!
The first is the first printed sample of the WarGods of Olympus hardcover rules! This is the actual book, taken from the print run and next-day aired to us. The rest are being boxed and loaded onto a trireme, and they will begin their journey this coming week - which means they should be here in about 4-5 weeks if things go as planned.
We made a quick flip-through video to show off the scope of the book - this thing is huge, clocking in at 344 pages, 350 if you count our printed end-papers and overleaves! Please note that we just shot this with our phone, so the video resolution is not great, but is should give a decent idea how it looks (though lots better in person!) We'll get a better (and longer) video and some high-res photos done in the next few days.
Until then, enjoy this preview...
We've also added a pre-order page to the Croc Store, if you have a friend who missed the Kickstarter and wants to be first in line to get a book once we've shipped them all to backers! You can get yours here:
Oh, and what was the second cool thing in the box from the printer, you ask? Well, the hour is late, and the camera-battery on the phone needs to be charged, so it will have to wait until next time! We'll be back in a few days with another update and all will be revealed!
The Amazon cavalry miniatures are available now, in the CROC STORE!
Fierce and wild, the Amazons are women warriors who are descended from the war-god Ares, and born with his love of bloodshed and a seething hatred for all men. The Amazons have a strong kinship with horses; though the men of Hellas typically ride into battle in chariots, the Amazons ride on the backs of their horses, trampling their enemies beneath thundering hooves. The are led by Queen Penthesilea, the daughter of Ares, who rides a snow-white stallion called Boreas, said to be as fast as the blowing wind and able to outrun the winged Harpies in flight.
The Amazon cavalry miniatures were sculpted by Chris FitzPatrick, based on concept art by Des Hanley. Corinth color painting by Paul Jeacock. The display models were painted and photographed by D Felicity FitzPatrick.
The new Amazon cavalry range contains the following packs:
WGO-317 Amazon Outriders unit (5) - $45.95
WGO-318 Amazon Raiders unit (5) - $45.95
WGO-219 Queen Penthesilea, Mounted - $19.95

We are happy to announce that the Hydra is now 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. It was molded and cast by the experts at On the Lamb Games, 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.
We also have a downloadable PDF of the Hydra rules for WarGods of Olympus, available HERE.
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.
We are happy to announce that our Cyclopes are in-stock, and now available for purchase!
The Cyclopes miniatures were sculpted by Todd Harris, and the display models painted by Felicity FitzPatrick. Each model is a little over 3" tall, making them about 18 feet tall (if the were real - they are not, of course!). The head/neck joint of each Cyclops is the same, so you could put each head on either body. Also, each Cyclops has a separate bit hanging from his belt - one has a huge hammer and tongs, for helping Hephaestus at his forge, the other has a big jug of wine and the leg of a slow-moving farm animal... in other words, lunch! Each of these belt ornaments have a universal connection, and so they be swapped onto the other Cyclops if you like. So, collectors who like lots of variety can make 4 different Cyclopes by swapping their heads and gear around!
Each is a resin and pewter model supplied with a laser-cut wood base. The resin components were cast by our friends at "On the Lamb" games, and they did a super job capturing the detail and nuance of Todd's original sculpture. The miniatures are supplied unpainted, and require some assembly.
You can get yours now, in the Croc Online Store.
We also have a downloadable PDF of the Cyclops rules for WarGods of Olympus, available HERE.
The above photo shows how tall the Cyclopes are compared to a 28mm miniature. We think the unlucky Trojan may be in a spot of trouble!
At last, our new range of Amazons is available now, in the CROC STORE!
When we set out to design our new range of Amazons for WarGods, we wanted to make sure they were special. They needed to look beautiful, with a hint of wildness and danger about them. We wanted to make sure that they were equipped to take on any man in a fair fight... our Amazons wear bronze and leather armor over the parts of the body you need to protect -- you'll find no high-heels or chainmail bikinis here! We also wanted them to grounded in reality, and so ours take inspirations from ancient greek hoplites, scythian tribesmen, hollywood, and all blended together to with a subtle exaggeration to give them that 'WarGods' look. We think these women warriors are ready to take on any opponents! The miniatures are based on concept art by Des Hanley, sculpted by Chris FitzPatrick, and painted by D Felicity FitzPatrick.
The new Amazon range contains the following packs:
WGO-904 Amazon Warband Starter Set - $74.95
WGO-118 Amazon Captain, with Casualty - $8.95
WGO-119 Amazon Hero, with Armor Rack - $8.95
WGO-313a Amazon Warrior Unit - Spear Sisters (12) - $39.95
