Spartan Take Their Kickstarter to Ancient Greece with New Models

February 17, 2015 by dracs

Spartan Games are throwing some minis into the mix of their modular terrain Kickstarter as they bring out new add ons all themed around the classical mythology of ancient Greece.

Temple of the Ancients Pack

Trio of Monsters

Trio of Heroes

Skeletal Horde

All of these new creations hark back to the legends of ancient Greece and the epic films and shows they have inspired. I am particularly taken with the skeletal horde, which just need to judder slightly to look like they’re stepping out a Harryhausen classic.

Along with these Spartan have a new rule system to help you to recreate the mythical battles and adventures on the tabletop.

Death or Glory

Spartan have said that the focus of these rules is to provide players with a simple yet fun set of skirmish rules, applicable to a variety of game time periods and genres, which focus heavily upon the importance of the hero. The idea is that these will let you reenact such epic film moments as Leonidas fighting his way through Persian Immortals or Jason fighting off the skeleton warriors of the dragon’s teeth.

Greek mythology is ripe with gaming possibilities and these new rules and minis should help you explore them. This first set is tailored towards the stories of Greece, but no doubt we will soon find ones throwing us into the legends of Egypt, the Norse and maybe even Asia!

Does Spartan’s recreation of the ancient legends entice you to their Kickstarter?
