WarGods Amazons for Cancon 2020 (Jan 26)

Recommended Posts

So I'm going to see if putting together a diary helps me with motivation in getting this army completed in time for a tournament in January 2020.


First of all, the idea - in Canberra, Australia we have a convention (Cancon) every January, it's been going for something like 30+ years, and for about the last decade we've had a WarGods tournament running.


After a Kickstarter I have an Amazon warband sitting in bare metal so I decided that for 2020 I'll take that Warband. First of all I have to work out the army list, then prepare the models for painting.


So, onto the army list:

Amazon Demigod of Hecate, Ka 2, second Ka power Skin of Marble


Still have to work out what to equip her with, but with the Ka power she can't take armour...


13 Hellhounds - using Reaper's WarPugs - 12 War Pugs based in pairs with a Reaper Foo Dog as the leader


5 x Outriders - Horse Archers

5 x Outriders - Horse Archers

12 x Peltasts

Mother of Serpents (effectively a Minoan snake priestess)

That takes me to about 905 from a maximum of 1750 points, so I'll need to work out what to use the remaining points for, I do need to take some basic warriors, which will set me back 25pts/model (so I can potentially take 30 of them), and I may take some Raiders instead of outriders (they are spear-armed cavalry)


Anyway, I'll try and get some photos of the basic models tomorrow and go from there...

So some photos of what I have to work with - First photo has the Demigod, some spear women, peltasts and my Hell Pugs




And this is the box containing the remaining figures, specifically morespearwomen, some swordswomen and the cavalry

That's an impressive army!


Not yet...Maybe when it's painted!


Running the numbers, for my Amazons I should have

1 x Demigod

1 x Mounted Demigod

2 x Honor Guard

36 x Spearwomen

12 x Peltasts

12 x Archers

2 x Hero/Champion

10 x Swordswomen

10 x Raiders (spear cavalry)

10 x Outriders (horse archers)

1 x Herald

1 x Musician


That's the specifically Amazon figures, on top of that I also have demigods for Hecate, Athena and Artemis that I can use (that is demigods specific to those goddesses, the one above is supposed to represent Queen Penthesilea)

And on doing a test fit I wasn't happy with the result, so she's now been re-cut and I need to do another test print.

I have some progress - models are now attached to their bases (assembled if need be) and undercoated (except the HellPugs)


Painting is intended to happen tonight, I may get some photos...

Well, I did get some painting done tonight, but no photos (maybe tomorrow when the light is better).


Warband ends up being:


13 x Hellhounds

10 x Outriders (horse archers)

24 x Spearwomen (2 units)

12 x Peltasts

2 x Heroes

1 x Manhunter (Specialist hero)

1 x Mother of Serpents


So far I've managed to get the cloth on the Spearwomen (GW contrast Iyanden Yellow), Peltasts (GW contrast Militarium Green), Outriders (GW contrast blue) and the Heroes (Army Painter Red Tone over Reaper Fresh Blood) done, as well as get some grey liner on the Hellhounds so I can paint


Plan at the moment is as follows:

Skin: Reaper Flesh Wash over Reaper HD Caucasian Flesh (Reaper Fair Maiden for the Mother of Serpents and Demigod)

Armour: Something using a Gold base, exact details to be determined

Spear Blades/Swords: Black Wash over Reaper Tarnished Steel

Horses: Reaper Ruddy Brown with a wash of some description over it, TBD

Wood: Reaper Ruddy Brown

Leather, shields and hair: TBD

      Welcome to the most thrilling raid in the miniature history! Choose your side, fight until the end and get greatly rewarded for your engagement!
      This campaign features 2 lines of miniatures!
      "Temple of Serpent" is a brand new collection inspired by the lost civilizations of Amazonia and Mesoamerica. It envisions an utopian enclave hidden so deep in the wilderness that it is considered forbidden territory. The tribe is focused on preserving an ancient magic with the help of gods and dinosaurs. Be the first to explore it!
      "Bloodsail Island" is an established line of ruthless ogre pirates. Upon discovering the Temple of Serpent they have became overpowered by the desire to plunder its treasures. They are going to need every hand on deck for this one, so the line is getting a massive extension! 
      Our products are in 28mm scale and come with square bases. Check pictures at the bottom of our campaign to see the size comparisons. All miniatures are made from high-quality resin that ensures highest details, durability and flexibility. 
      Based on our Kickstarter experience and community feedback we have came up with the simplest Reward System to date. You can choose one of the following pledges.
      Deckhand Pledge is for you if you are not sure what you need but you want to be a part of the campaing. It will give you the access to the Pledge Manager where you will be able to spend your additional funds on any miniatures you want. 
        Basic Pledge is for you if you do not want to pick a side. It is really simple. You plede $99 and you receive $99 to spend on addons. But on top of that you will choose and receive either a set of Serpent Freebies OR Ogre Freebies. The more SG we unlock the more value will come with those freebies packs.
      In Captain Pledge you become the commander of ogre pirate army! Pledge $199 to get Captain Krabor in special offer for $40. The rest of your funds ($159) you will be able to spend in the Pledge Manager on any addons that you see fit. On top of that, you will receive  a set of Ogre Freebies. The more SG we unlock the more value will come with your freebies packs.
      In Serpent Pledge you become the deity of the Temple! Pledge $199 to get High Priestess on Pterossus in a special offer for $50. The rest of your funds ($149) you will be able to spend in the Pledge Manager on any addons that you see fit. On top of that, you will receive  a set of Serpent Freebies. The more SG we unlock the more value will come with your freebies packs.
        After the campaign ends, we will open a Pledge Manager. You will receive an e-mail address with a link to it. When you log in, you will be able to pick your rewards and spend your funds on any chosen add-ons from the campaign. You will also be able to transfer additional funds via PayPal. After finishing an order a shipping cost will be charged, based on your address and the package weight. 
      All additional funds you pledge over your reward price you will be able to spend on add-ons.
      When our Campaign is live we will post a link to an online calculator that will help you in figuring out how much you need to pledge to get all the miniatures you want. 
      Example 1: You want just 3 units of Raptor Riders that are $39 each. In order to get them you need to choose Basic Pledge and pledge $117 (3x $39) for it. This will allow you to spend that $117 in Pledge Manager and choose 3x Raptor Riders. On top of that you will be able to choose a set of freebies (either Serpent of Ogre one).
      Example 2: You want Captain Krabor, 3 units of Sharkman that are $39 each and 5 units of goblins that are $12 each. In order to get those you should choose Captain Pledge and pledge $217 for it. In this pledge Captain Krabor is in a better price and you will also get $159 for other addons. You need 3x $39 + 5x $12 = $177 so you need to pledge $18 on top of the pledge price to cover everything. 
      In case of any mistakes, there will be no problem with make a correction. You will always be able to add funds in the Pledge Manager via PayPal, so if you do not pledge enough through Kickstarter, you will still be able to get everything you need after the campaign ends.

        Risks and challenges
      Risks and challenges that are a part of every campaign with tabletop collectible miniatures are usually:
      - Delay in delivery
      - Production difficulties
      - Digital models conversion and creation of production molds
      - Communication with the Backers that are postponing filling out the Pledge Manager that creates a delay for the start of targeted production
      We have a lot of experience as for the miniatures production and delivery and we will do our best to keep risk levels at minimum and deliver the best miniatures that you have always wanted.

      With my inability to leave well enough alone, of course the first batrep I post using this Historicals ruleset is between two mythological armies.  I mean, why wouldn't it be?
      Rules:  Hail Caesar, by Warlord Games.
      600 pts of Mummies, based on the New Kingdom Egyptian published list. (Reaper Miniatures' Bones)
      400ish pts of Amazons, based on the Later Hoplite published list. (Wargames Factory Amazons w/Reaper leaders)















      This was a really good game - we seriously had no idea which army was going to break first, and we spent a turn or so with both armies one unit away from routing.  It was the Mummies' final break through the center that sealed the deal.

      I collect the Croc Games figures even though I don't play the game. Here's my latest, the color scheme inspired by the web store example, but adjusted to fit in more with my Warlord Nefsokar army. I will proxy this Thoth for the Reaper Thoth. In Warlord Thoth is a construct, but I see him here more as a summoned celestial avenger.
