If you like Egyptian themed gaming, you have to check out Wargods of Aegyptus from Crocodile Games. They make the coolest Egyptian themed minis. My favorites are the Basti (cat warriors) and the Sebeki (crocodilians), but all are exceptionally cool.

www.crocodilegames.com/

Their gallery has some gorgeous painted minis, and www.Coolminiornot.com has some really beautifully painted figures as well.

I painted up their big skull-headed sphinx statue for terrain. Now that I'm painting again, I'll have to paint some of the figures. The Basti camp followers are so much fun.

Hi Kradlo -
Does Crocodile Games still have that Skull-headed Sphinx available? I've wanted to get one for years !!! I got to chat with Chris Fitzpatrick at the Games Day where he was demonstrating the game. Very nice guy ... even remembered me and our sculpting discussion from the previous year - when he was still working with GW.


Hi Maulhelm -
Yes, I found some great items at my local Petco, too. The sphinx I have my eye on is almost like a book end (just the front half) but there's a nicely detailed "door" at the chest between the front legs. "Hmmmm ... now how do we open this ...?"


See ya !!

I just checked the Crocodile Games website, and they don't list the skull-headed sphinx anymore. They do have a pre-painted "weathered sandstone" sphinx for sale.

Not quite as sinister, but it should work well for thematic style.

They're also going to be discontinuing some of the Grendel resins. Check out www.discounthobby.com for more details. I'd say, get 'em while you can.

I picked up the Temple of Set, which I'd wanted for years. I'd have gotten more, but that's about all my current funds would allow.

From the flyer e-mailed to me on February 7th, from Discount Hobby:

Grendel Resin Blister packs and Sci-Fi ranges are BACK on the site. You will find SOME in the listings at 25% off suggested retail due to overstocks. At least HALF of the grendel range will NOT be restocked once we sell out.
I don't know which will or won't be restocked. You may need to check with John Lauck for that at Discount Hobby.
