My first units completed for Osprey’s “Of Gods and Mortals” mythological wargames rules. Two units of mortals, Greek Hoplites:
I’ve gone with the Greek army list in the book, but OGAM is very flexible in that you can make your own lists for any god you want. Chance are you have models for OGAM already, since you could easily make rules for any of the Warhammer Gods (I was considering doing either Slaanesh or the Great Maw for example), or anything else. In the book are lists for Greeks, Egypt, Norse and Celts, and there’s rules online for Japanese gods and pre-Islamic Arabic.
The game is small warband size, max unit size as you can see is 8 models in a close ordered mortal formation. Mortals are the bulk of the list, but they are accompanied by Legends (e.g Perseus, Minotaurs, Chimera etc), and of course a God. I’m using Aphrodite as my God, mainly because I found a model I liked for her.
There is an official model line from North Star miniatures, but the beauty of a game like OGAM is that you can use any models you want. These hoplites are from Warlord Games which you can get using the club discount. I bought them sprues only and got 16 models for about £7.
You can buy transfer for the shields from Warlord as well, I freehanded all mine as a painting project which was more enjoyable than I thought it would be.
Next unit is a pack of wild dogs, also from Warlord.06/01/2016 at 11:37 AM #15080Anonymous
Seeing as 300 is one of my most favourite ever films, ever…….. I’d be interested in seeing this game.22/01/2016 at 2:07 PM #15082Anonymous29/01/2016 at 8:26 PM #15081Anonymous
Some very cool free hand art on those shields mate!29/01/2016 at 10:27 PM #15401Anonymous
Cheers . The shields were the most enjoyable part of the project really, plus they are the only parts of the model you can actually see. I’ve not batch painted more than about 3 models for 5 years or so.
I done some work on my Goddess model, but photobucket is down at the moment so I will post a WIP picture when I can.30/01/2016 at 12:21 PM #15403Anonymous30/01/2016 at 12:25 PM #15404Anonymous05/02/2016 at 1:53 PM #15405Anonymous23/02/2016 at 10:30 AM #15453Anonymous
Another legend done, needs no introduction:
He has an ability called Labyrinth, where he can trap a unit near him so they can’t escape.
No the greatest paint job or model I’ve ever done, but it did only cost me £2.50. He a Reaper Bones reskit model so he’s a bit bendy and clean up was a pain, but he painted up OK.23/02/2016 at 11:04 AM #15655Anonymous
I got one of those to be Taurox the brass bull in beastmen, but when it arrived it seemed too small compared to the doombulls so now it languishes in a drawer. Looks a good paint job to me!08/03/2016 at 3:14 PM #15656Anonymous08/03/2016 at 3:15 PM #1575427/04/2016 at 2:33 PM #15755Anonymous27/04/2016 at 2:43 PM #16211Anonymous
Looks great. Which paint are you using for the pink tones in the flesh? I works well.27/04/2016 at 2:47 PM #16212Anonymous
