Ancient Greeks, Olympians, and a Medieval Knight

I got a few things finished up over the weekend…

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version):

Ares and Apollo from Wargames Foundry - The last two of the Olympians that I picked up a few years back and mostly painted… except these two… and now they’re done. 

Hmmm.... Greek Gods apparently don't have pubic hair... or at least Apollo here doesn't. Is it a god thing? Do they just not have any or is it fashionable amongst the gods to shave down there? Or is it just Apollo? Perhaps he moonlights as a porn star...?

Here are ALL the Olympians together. Quite the crowd.

The Godesses – from left to right: Demeter, Hestia, Hera, Aphrodite, and Athena

The Gods (part 1) – from left to right: Ares, Posiedon, Zeus, Hades, Hermes

The Gods (part 2) – from left to right: Eros, Hephaestus, Apollo, Dionysus  

A couple of Pegasai(?).

Greek Casualties from Warlord Games

More Greeks, mostly from Black Tree Design - the fellow on the left isn’t from Black Tree Design. I got him in a trade and I’m not entirely sure where he came from…?

Still more Black Tree Design Greeks – I seem to have a LOT of guys in this pose…?

Finally… not a Greek… an early Medieval Knight. I’m pretty sure he’s from Old Glory, probably supposed to be a crusader…?  

The backside of said knight – showing off his Bunny Rampant device.

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

I’ve got to get on with some Great War battalions so I thought I’d just into that this week – it is Armistice/Remembrance Day tomorrow! I also have a few more Ancient/Mythic Greek items on the workbench I’d like to finish up.

Perhaps also a game report of the skirmishy-role-playing game I’ve started with the kids set in the world of Mythical Greece. 


  1. Outstanding job, many thanks for this travel in the Ancient Greece on these beautiful pegases...

  2. Nice collection :) That 'white' is really effective!
    Perhaps a little too much info on the personal habits of the gods...

    1. Thanks!

      The White drapery? Yes, quick-easy-effective. I undercoat all white drapery in a warmish grey colour (I think it's called "lichen") and then highlight with white. Boom. Done. And looks the part on the table top.

  3. Bunny Rampant!

    Needs a bloody mouth to complete the look

    1. Indeed it does!

      Well, maybe if it were on a different field - with the red background it would just blend in and make the bunny look malformed.

  4. Wonderful work Tim. Your hand painted Greek shields are gorgeous!

    1. Thanks Millsey! They are simultaneously a lot of fun and a pain in the ass to paint.
