Taking a cue from the lovely boar’s tusk helmet on AdmiralMiniatures’ new hobgoblin assassin, I would like to ask if any of the esteemed members of this forum might have some advice regarding 28mm Mycenaean/Achaean/Minoan miniatures. I think that the Aegean Bronze Age could be an interesting base for a Fantasy faction (e.g. with snake priestesses wielding elemental magic and creatures like centaurs, minotaurs, harpies etc. in specialist roles). I don’t know if something in that vein has been done. If so, I’d be glad to know!
Well, here’s what I have found so far:
Warlord Games sells a line of “Achaeans” by Cutting Edge for Hail Caesar.
Wargames Foundry has a large range titled “Myceneans, Minoans and the Trojan War” (and also one titled “Greek Mythology”, including this Bronze Bull that might be interesting to Chaos Dwarf generals! :hat)
Casting Room Miniatures (“Trojan War/Myceneans”)
Eureka Miniatures (“Bronze Age Greeks”) with an additional, smaller “Myceneans” category
Redoubt Enterprises (“Trojan Wars”). Many of the minis on this page are just shown as drawings, but those look really nice. Some have no picture at all, unfortunately, but from what I gathered the site is being reorganised at the moment.
Do you have any experiences with these manufacturers, or maybe know of some others that might have eluded me?
Thanks a lot!
