Scorpion Men and Cretan Archers

Near the end of July Black Tree Design had a 50% off everything Summer Blowout Sale and I picked up… a few things… mostly items that would be useful for Song of Shadows and Dust, but also a few other odd and sundry iteams.

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

Cretan Archers – which could be used as “Cretan Bodyuguards” in SSD.

I just happen to be reading Cthulhu Invictus and planning to use it as a setting for a A Tale of Blades and Heroes campaign… and in one of the adventures there happen to be scorpion men… and Black Tree Design just happen to have the scorpion men… so… here they are…

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

We played a game of Song of Shadows and Dust last night and hopefully later today I’ll get around to posting a game report of that.

After that…? more ancients of one sort or another. I had hoped to get Egyptian and Nubian DBA armies doen for the first of second week of September… but that seems to have been derailed in favour of finishing up more stuff for skirmish games and role-playing… 


  1. Those scorpion dudes are so creepy! Ick! Role for morale!

    1. Indeed! My kids saw me painting them and were terrified about the idea of facing them in a game! There were almost tears!
