The haunting lilt of panpipes high on the mountain peak...

At MOAB this year I finally submitted to my long-time desire and picked up a few 28mm Eureka satyrs and a Shadowforge dryad. I'll use them for SBH for now, and for the Greek Myth version, Song of Gods and Heroes, when it is finally written. The 'satyrs' are technically Panes, the twelve Pan-esque nature spirits, Greek Satyrs having human legs an horses tails, but I'm happy to go with 'satyrs'. Note that the pictures below are from the respective manufacturers' websites.

Satyr spearmen
Satyrs with hand weapons
Satyr archers
Dryads
Not sure whether I want more of less satyrs for SBH. I tend to find that less (with higher Q) is more in the game, but my provisional lists are as follows: <SBH warband builder HERE>

  1. Another chap into sb&h - I too have been caught up in it of late too...
    Figures look great and your stats are most interesting. Do you know the novel"Day of the minotaur" by Thomas Burnett Swann well worth tracking down for a great greek fantasy vibe...
    best wishes
