Nice but out of my price range.

How many do you need?

I don't even play fantasy, but every time I look the Wargods sculpts I feel the urge to buy.

Those are very cool. I agree with Jeff that my first impulse is to start a new period when I see stuff like this. Crocodile Games turn out some amazing stuff, and I've had my finger hovering over the online cart a few times.

Has anyone had a chance to play the Wargods of Aegyptus rules? The size and grouping of the units sort of reminds me of the old Warhammer rules. I found at least one interesting review:

Those are good looking Amazons. They look like they would be well worth adding to my collection. After that I will be looking for you to make the horse archers to make them really Scythian like. I run a Silly City State Campaign and they would make a great addition to it. P.S. I am the Archon of the Polis of Hubris. Other city states exist like Euphoria, Kleptea, and Phutsor.

I applaud Wargods for making some fine sculpts of female warriors that don't demean females! These look realistic in concept and would make some nice additions to anyone's collection.

+1 to Joker.

These are serious amazons, not exotic dancers with swords. These are Amazons that could have successfully invaded Atlantis.

Their faces actually actually look tougher than the images we have of the original amazons.

No one mentioning that, purportedly (and incidentally not borne out by contemporary illustrations), the Amazon archers had their right breasts removed so as not to impede the use of the bow?

I've played the Wargods rules a few times and like them a lot.

And these new figs are awesome!

I'm always tempted by the figures, but it seems to take forever for them to complete ranges. They have Mycenaens and now Amazons, but still no Trojans or appropriate chariots. They have Spartans, but no Athenians or Thebans.

Certainly if you buy in, you help them reinvest the money into extending the range. It's quite a commitment/offering up front.

I don't believe the breast-removal story. Everyone mentions it, because it's lurid, but I haven't heard anyone cite an ancient source for this detail. I have heard mention of the idea being described in classical times (hundreds of years after the Amazons were supposed to have existed) by one writer and his speculation being rejected by other writers.

None of the classical images of Amazons show this feature. They're all either wearing armor or have intact breasts.

Modern Olympic archers seem to deal with the problem without surgery.
