Glorantha Miniatures

Recommended Posts

https://www.crocodilegames.com/ has models based on Egyptian and Greek bronze age mythology.

For example, they have Mycaenean models which would fit well as Kethaelan Orlanthi. They also have Amazons which could make Yelornans for example, or Lunar cavalry.

EDIT: Went back to the first page of this thread and just realized I've linked to this site before. Oops! 😅

Thanks for sharing again, @Sir_Godspeed. I've bookmarked the link. I like the Crocodile Games Amazon Outriders and Raiders. I ordered Amazons from Bad Squid, but could use some mounted infantry.

Do you know if the Crocodile Games miniatures are 28mm or 30mm?

I couldn't find measurements on the newer models (only that the square bases are 20mm), but when going back to their older Egyptian mythology line, it says 28mm for those, and I haven't seen anything to suggest it's changed.

That's good to know that the Egyptian mythology line is 28mm and it's probably true that the Amazons are at the same scale. I sent a message to Crocodile Games via their "Contact Us" web form and I'll let you know their answer when I receive it. I'd like to get their official word on the miniatures' scale.

I used the Old Glory figures with one or two exceptions for the leader types (I am no longer sure where I found them).  The riders are Sarmatians, the armor meant to bone, and the Buffalo themselves are from the West Wind Cowboy line up.  In retrospect I might have made the bases more Praxian, but the whole campaign was being run in Dragon Pass at the time.  The bases also need more vegetation, but I got photo-happy before I finished them.

Thanks, @pachristian I have some bison from Iron Wind Metals that I'm in the process of painting, but they're just standing still. I like the Acheson Creations bison's pose and will be getting some of those. I've also been on the hunt for zebras. Thanks for sharing!

Here are a few more figures that I've completed.

Here's a Great Troll from Infinity Engine's RuneQuest Sampler Set. There's a very faint Man rune on the shield.

"Claw" with necklace of severed hands, and Big Rhino from MadKnight's Broo Pack. I still have a few more of the Broo Pack to paint.

Here are the two Rock Lizards from Infinity Engine's Adversaries set.

And the Dream Weft. I attempted to make it appear that blue-white light was emanating from between the wraps under the hood and from the open sleeves of the figure. It didn't turn out as I intended however.

These miniatures are from WizKids unpainted line of figures for (mostly) D&D games, but I think they're perfectly usable for Glorantha. Especially for Rune spells such as Summon Cult Spirit (RQG p. 342).

Air Cult Spirits. I used real leaves cut to size and glued them on the miniatures for added effect. Sealed with clear matte spray. Hopefully the matte spray will prevent the leaves from decomposing further. Also, I didn't use the small black bases that were included in the package and replaced the bases with clear ones. That way you can put an air spirit on a clear "flight" base to show that it's hovering above the ground (see second image below).

 Here are WizKids' medium earth elementals, which can be used for Gloranthan Earth Spirits.

These WizKids' Oxen can be used for Sartar cattle.

And here's a Reaper Miniatures pack mule that's always useful for adventurers.

I know, but they were inexpensive (US$4.99 for a pack of two). They can also work for my western frontier games.

Oh, I know. 😀

The BRP forums are one of the most welcoming forums I've participated in. Some here may remember the flame wars on the Ars Magica Berkeley mailing list or RPG.net in the early 2000s. I don't know what was in the water back then.... 😋

Don't awaken sleeping dragons!

Thank you! Astigmatism, a manifestation of Chaos, is winning the battle against my Harmony eye glasses. 😋  All of which makes me slow at painting.
