Forever with a view for fun and colourful settings for a good skirmish game, here are the poor mortals that will inevitably meet their fate against the powers of the Gods or the brutality of legendary mythological beasts. The Greek warriors.
Anyone of a similar generation as I will have fond memories of films like Jason and the Argonauts (Harryhausen’s magic still has it’s charm today) with heroic battles against the likes of Medusa, Cyclops, harpies, Minotaur and skeletons to name but a few.
These chaps below are quite clearly sculpted and posed for ‘armies’. I only wish that more ‘heroic’ or ‘legendary’ style miniatures existed in 15mm for my purposes. Something like these, or these. Ditching 15mm for 28mm would remedy this. But I can’t. Not yet anyway.

Okay. I have my reservations on this one.
I’m always interested in new ways to do old things. 3d printing is one of those things that is becoming increasing accessible and affordable. Clearly to miniature collectors and gamers it’s a no-brainer that it could open up a world of possibilities.
I’m at a loss to where to take these exactly. They are a few testers of a larger force. They ended up blue by default because I’d loaded an airbrush with blue for something else, had left over, and just sprayed them as they were near by. A ‘near-by spraying’?
As you can see, 3 of them are assault troops with shields and hand weapons. I can’t for the life of me decide what (if anything) I should paint on their shields or other markings for that matter. Mental block.
FYI. These are old miniatures no longer available for legal reasons (I believe). Once upon a time produced by The Scene. Their current range of ‘Wasteland’ warriors are echoes of some Space Ork sculpts also once available (and in my possession to be painted). 15mm 40k anyone?
