Development Update: Amazons

Been working on the Amazon list a bit (more than I should really!), and I'm making decent headway. Most of the bestiary is finished, and I'm getting help from Stefan Wolf to flesh out the fluff of what's left. Their main background section will have a bit more fluff in it as well, particularly their history section (which will also be fleshed out by Stefan Wolf), which only mentions their origin and myths at the moment. They will also have a real timeline this time around.

As far as units go, they will get 4 new ones in total (Beast Mistresses, Terradon Riders, Medusas and an Avatar of Rigg), and 2 new special characters (Lwaxana, a lvl 4 Voodoo caster, and a Lysippe, a mounted character). 2 of the old units (Pygmies, Handmaidens) are gone. High Age Artefacts will be available to most units as upgrades.

From the looks of it, I will probably be able to get it out at the end of the month, depending on how long it will take to finish the new fluff.

  1. Is there any compiled information on amazon models? I am trying to build an amazon army. So far I have been buying these:

    I also know of the bloodbowl team, the mordheim warband, and some greek looking amazons by wargames factory. None of those sculpts I much care for.

    1. Check out Freebooter miniatures, Shadowforge and Maidenhead miniatures, they might have something to your taste. The Freebooter ones are especially good.

      There's also Mirliton, Wargames Foundry, and Eureka miniatures.

  2. Thanks, that list helps me a lot.

  3. This seems to be the price per (unmounted) figure for the various amazon sources:

    freebooter: $9-$15 ppf
    mordheim: $5 ppf
    shadowsea: $4-$8 ppf
    maidenhead: $4-$5 ppf
    shadowforge: $4 ppf
    eureka: $3 ppf
    mirliton: $2-$3 ppf
