Demigoddess of Hecate

Crocodile Games, the masters of mythical-themed wargames, created a limited edition miniature for their 2021 convention season. But as 2021 was a damp squib for conventions, they ran an online event to give them out. A painting contest, and a limited edition – the format could only pander to me more if there was free beer.

Who better to enter than this fantastic Demigoddess of Hecate, as the competition ended on midnight of Halloween, and Hecate is the goddess of gh-gh-gh-ghosts.

Yikes Scoob.

She’s a great Chris Fitzpatrick sculpt (I’ve frothed on about him before) with a striking and intricate silohuette. The miniature is an endless swirl of crisp details, swirling braids of hair and spiked diadem all echoing the crescent moon of her staff held aloft by the triplicate form of the goddess herself.

“The moon is no door. It is a face in its own right. White as a knuckle and terribly upset.”

This wasn’t a competition competition, where only the judges’ favourite gets a prize. Everyone that entered got a Priestess of Eris. I hope to show off mine soon, alongside some of Crocodile’s Trojans and Amazons!

    Excellent work – this is a great paint job on this great mini – I love Fitz’s work – I would really like to get some of the Crocodile Games minis but I haven’t found any possible use for any of them yet. I might pick up some just to paint though as they really are good.

      I’m a long way off having a workable WarGods force, but I’m just enjoying painting the miniatures for their own sake at the moment.
