Sneak Peek – Norse Berserkers

One of the elite unit choices for the Norse army in Conquest of the Gods are Norse Berserkers. Elijah Akouri has finished sculpting this fantastic unit and whilst we were planning to keep these hidden away with the other elite units for the Kickstarter, we couldn’t resist and have decided to give you a sneak peek of whats on the way.


Below are two of the five poses for the units miniatures. These models have some combustibility, such as removable capes and should look fantastic when painted up as a unit.




These models are currently in our production Que for 3D printing and the production models along with the other three poses will be part of our upcoming kickstarter campaign.

The other elite units for the other armies are also either finished or are in the process of being completed.  We may tease some of the other elite units closer to the launch of the campaign, so stay tuned!



We now have some higher resolution renderes of these models for you:



Hachiman – Japanese Shinto God of War

Hachiman is the Japanese Shinto god of war, tutelary god of warriors, and divine protector of Japan. One human, before he ascended into the respected ranks of the Shinto gods he was Ōjin, the 15th emperor of Japan. As a Shinto god (kami), Hachiman is immensely popular throughout Japan, about half of the registered Shintō shrines are thought to be dedicated to him. Two popular modern tourist attractions of such shrines incluse the Usa Shrine (Usa, Ōita) and the Iwashimizu Shrine (Yawata, Kyoto).

Sculpted by Australian artist David Sparrow, Hachiman is an exaggerated 28mm (31mm) scale, metal, multi-part miniature. Like the Thor- the Norse god miniature, Hachiman is based on a 40mm base, inclusive of scenic elements, in this case some unfortunate foes from the Greek and Norse range. The 3D model is currently in our priority prototyping que and will have had its production moulding completed before we launch our upcoming crowd funding campaign.






Bringing Hachiman to the tabletop brought with it several complex design challenges. Due to his popularity in Japan, it was important that the final model was both epic in its look and design but also respectful to the Japanese history and mythology around such an important Shinto kami. In our research there are two ways of portraying Hachiman as a Kami, the first is a more demonic look that we see fairly common in Japanese mythology, the other portrays him as a powerful samurai. As he is the tutelary god of warriors and an ancestor of the Minamoto samurai clan we opted for the samurai look. This look fit in better the range of miniatures whilst still yielding a pretty awesome miniature. This style is also a cleaner fit for the scenes he appears in in the games fiction. It was important to include key visual cues that link the miniature with the modern portrayals of Hachiman so we were sure to include the crest of Hachiman is in the design (a mitsudomoe) and took some design cues for his Armour from several of the Shinto shrine statutes of Hachiman.

Hachiman will feature in the Japanese starter set alongside the Oni and several other key Japanese miniatures. hachiman is the 3rd God miniature to be previewed for Conquest fo the Gods, following the Norse god Thor and Egyptian god Horus. The final god miniature for preview is Ares the greek God of War, we hope to be showing Ares off in the coming weeks.

Greek artwork preview

We are pleased to preview some more artwork, this time by talented Australian artist George Evangelista who is doing the art for the Greek section of the Conquest of the Gods core rule book.

George has joined our talented team with valuable experience from television, film and book publishing industries. His passion for mythology has come through in his work, with his realistic style taking our miniature design philosophy to the next level. As you can see when compared to the Norse artwork, the Greek artwork has a different style and look, this is intentional as each section of the book will have its own unique feel and flavour.

To sample some of geoprges work that will feature in the Gree section of the Conquest of the Gods core rule book we present:

The Greek Minotaur (miniature already previewed)

Minotaur-Final_Brightness Adjust with Logos

And the Greek Strategos.



This should give you all a taste of what the Greek artwork will look like, this is also the first taste of what the Greek infantry models look like. All of the greek infantry miniatures have been sculpted (including the strategos) and will be previewed soon.

We should have some more model and art previews on the way some time in the next few weeks. Previews have been a bit slower than we would like as our focus has shifted heavily on production moulding and prototyping for all of the models in the core starter sets (one for each army). We plan to have all of the core starter sets finished and production moulding for them completed before we ask people for money on Kickstarter.

In the meantime, please spread the word about the project! We are on most social media platforms (all linked from the top of our webpage). If you would like to see more examples of Georges work he is on social media, George’s website can be seen at:
