Signed copies shipped from Italy. The book ships on October 22nd, 2013, the same day it ships from Osprey. Check the link above for a detailed description of the game.

Forgive me for crossposting this to the Ancients discussion, I think ancients players may have an interest in mythology.

These rules look excellent for playing scenario's from the recent Jason & Argonauts Osprey book, or other Greek mythology (Trojan wars!)

A pity it will be several months before we can try the rules.
I can hardly wait!

I've been looking at this for the last week or so,and thought it was interesting. I'll have to come up with some 54mm figures to stand in for "gods".

Or you could avoid the wait and try these right away:

If someone were interested in playing it in 15mm,like I am,Eagle Games still sells the components from their Age of Mythology boardgame,a good source for Egyptian,Greek and Norse monsters.While I believe they are 1/72 and in plastic,they are cheap-$3 a set,plus shipping.Also,if you buy into Goya's version of Saturn,I've got some plastic cavemen that would work for Titans.

Hi Ganeesha
Hope you don't mind me 'piggy-backing' on your post.

I'm really pleased to also announce North Star will be doing sets of 28mm figures to go with this set of rules.
Steve Saleh is busy working on them now, and has finished 4 Gods and 4 Legendary creatures so far.
I'll be posting pictures on our Facebook Gallery very soon.

Neat looking game. I'd love to reenact some of the Greek myths, especially that of Achilles.
Great stuff from osprey (hopefully) as usual.

Taking a break from my "real" plastic men to play similar games with my "imaginary/mythical" plastic men will be very fun.

I am looking forward to this!!

Very interesting. What scale is this in?

Ganesha Games Sponsoring Member of TMP Inactive Member01 Jul 2013 9:28 a.m. PST

Gorenut, any scale as the rules use three measuring sticks for all distances and ranges and no scale is implied. But I guess most people will play it in 28mm given the wealth of models available, and the new models produced by NorthStar.

gorenut Inactive Member01 Jul 2013 10:06 a.m. PST

Ok… I was moreso curious with the models NorthStar was producing. Around 28mm is perfect for me.
