War Banner has shown off more of the work going into the stunning Greeks that you'll be able to use in their upcoming game, Mortal Gods.

Mortal Gods #1 - War Banner

This new set shows off a very grizzled commander. I love the scar on the front of his helmet and the matching one across his eye too. You could imagine him doing the whole Leonidas thing and leading his warriors into battle in his battered and well-worn armour.

Mortal Gods #2 - War Banner

The big thing that will be a draw to this game is the colour and heroic stories that you get when you think of the Greeks. Not only does their armour and such come plastered in amazing schemes but also everything about the Greeks has been given a boost by their ties to their Mythology.

Whilst the game is taking a very Historical angle it's hard to separate these Greek commanders from the likes of Theseus, Achilles, Odysseus and such. The draw of telling stories of them and their battles on the tabletop is going to be rather strong indeed.

I think this is the same thing that draws people towards games like SAGA too. Norse mythology is very tightly intertwined with the real people who existed during the period and so it's awesome to play out their adventures.
