This was a nice convergence of conversion. The Iron Snakes are a 40K force that have a lot of their background rooted in Greek myth. And 40K has mech called "titans" … nice double reference there. So when I wanted one for my Iron Snakes, I did this Polyphemus Class Titan project.

Now THAT is a neat conversion!

If they are based on Greek mythology, you can kiss them goodbye. "Sigmar (being GW IP lawyers) says NO!"

Also I remember being baffled that lizardmen were based on azteks, yet the chaos dwarfs had the pyramid of the sun. Pinch of salt required.

Temple of the Sun is from pre-Aztec Teotihuacan. Lizardmen are based on a conflation of the Maya and Aztecs.

They are not based on anything, they are made up fantasy LOL :D
