3 Spartans for Mythic Battles Pantheon

Mythic Battles: Pantheon (MBP) is a miniature boardgame produced by Monolith Board Games. MBP features characters from Greek Mythology in a 2-player boardgame; essentially collecting items from a board and controlling areas. Monolith are a French mob who Kickstart games with heaps of miniatures and end up with pledge totals in the millions. Not miles different from CMoN in what they do and how they operate. They’ve recently done a Kickstarter for Mythic Battles: Ragnarok. That game moves the setting to Norse mythology, but is ages away from completion and shipping and that was before COVID completely screwed logistics and manufacturing.

MBP focuses on the Gods, Heroes and Monsters from the Greek myths. However it also includes more cannon fodder types things as troops. These figures will move around the battlefield together as a unit and gradually get removed as they take damaage, reducing their overall effectiveness. The unit I’ve included here are the Spartans, which are very much in the exaggerated 300 Spartans style. This is Mythic Battles afterall, so there is no requirement for realism, and plausibility is not really of much interest either.

I mixed up the colours I used for the different Bronze elements on the miniature to give some variety to everything. Mainly changing the coat and just using the inks to increase the red hue to move it from gold/brass to bronze. I also mixed in some Scale 75 Speed Metal (SC-66) into the Elven Gold on the weapons to really make them pop.
