So as I suggested in my first post on this subject I have been ordering a few bits for this project and if by magic postie arrived with a few gifts...

First up from Grand Manner the Argo...
This is a resin cast Bireme perfect for the genre. It comes with resin mast, sails (furled) and steering oar. In addition the Stern post is a nicely carved curvy bit. Shame really as I wanted a goddess figure head. Maybe I can customise something here.
The package was so secure it took several cuts to open. Not surprised really because the ramming horn on the bow looks really fragile. I think I am going to have to mount the whole boat on its own base lest this gets broken. Painting this little model will get its own post in the future.
This is what it looks lioke painted on the Grand Manner Site
In addition I received another parcel of Reaper Minatures - these include all sorts of enemies for my Greek Heroes - Medusae, Harpies, Giant Scorpions etc. As these get painted I'll post up progress.
I bought these from this vendor on ebay - good price and swift delivery
Of course the pride of this purchase was the £16 Hydra - and what a nice beasty he turned out to be
Off to warfare in Reading this weekend so no doubt more stuff will get added to the pile
