Let's say you wanted to play less of a wargame and more of an RPG set in ancient Greece and you wanted to have figures to represent a mage, a cleric, a thief, a bard… I'm not going to say "barbarian" because you can't be a Greek and a barbarian.

Does anybody make good figures like this? Alternatively, any adventuring party type figures who seemed like they stepped out of Rome or the classical Middle East may be acceptable under the Close Enough doctrine.

Hmm – I think you ought to be able to find a good thief model from Footsore's "Gangs of Rome" range: link

Foundry's "Greek Mythology" range might work at a pinch. Their Apollo has a lyre and could work as a bard, though the figure is mostly naked and might not appeal to some folks: link . Other models in the same range could easily be used as a magician or priest, I think.

Depends how Ancient Greek you are going, but Fantasy ranges are probably your best bet. I would check Foundry Civilians, Dark Fable's Ptolemaic Egyptians & Shadowforge (Eureka) for characters.

1st corps has an unarmed greek muso with twin flutes. I imagine other Greek/Macedonian ranges have similar musos (although some will be armoured). Foundry have late Bronze Canaan/Syrian musos. 1 of the latter has a lyre. A number of ranges have Greek Priests consulting omens or invoking the Gods. 1st Corps and Baudea come to mind. Black Tree has some Greek civies.
