Of Gods and Mortals Zeus versus Hermes

Last week I pottered over to see chum James. Following my game against the Gaming Heir the other week I was up for more OGAM and James has been beavering away at a Greek force for a while. So it was ON! Hermes versus Zeus INA battle for the temple.

Naked Spartans defend the ruins

Look at the size of that!

James has created a Talos, Bronze giant in the style of the Harryhausen one we all know and love from Jason and the Argonauts using a tourist Noel he acquired on Crete.

The king of the gods manifests

Another of James' models fashioned from tourist statues.

Zeus confronts the Spartans

The Nemean Lion appears to assist Hermes

Medusa and the Hopilites take on Jason

Lion versus Bull

The Nemean Lion fancies easier prey

Zeus to the rescue

The Talos deals with Hermes

In the end a pretty easy victory for Zeus. James has played more OGAM then I recently, so even though his force was new to him he still knew what he was doing far better than I.
Great fun game with splendid company and James' scenery makes it even better.


  1. Wow! That is an impressive looking game! Just looking at that makes me consider collecting for it and the use of the tourist statues was brilliant!


  2. Lovely figures and beautiful terrain - all wonderfully photographed. I think Nekkid Spartans are terrifying! :)

  3. Looks like a great game and that talos is fantastic!.
