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

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:
Minotaurs: OLYMPUS MONSTERS
Our master Artifex gotten a new shipment of metal, and he's been casting up a few of our popular "Icons & Artifacts" miniatures that have been out-of-stock for a while. This range is an assortment of small treasures, objectives, and bits to customize your miniatures and their bases! The items restocked include the Sacred Ibis, Eagle, Anubi Sarcophagus, Auxiliary Weapon Sprue, and more!
Check them all out here:

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!
