Hi What is Polyphemus scale compared to the spartan?
I was hesitating if I am really into this kind of game (nor even to buy an expansion), but the sirens' picture (with Poseidon as the second best) got me into this. I've never heard about Luic Muzy before, but seeing also his other pictures, he quickly became one of my favourite artist ever. I sincerely hope, that the sirens' miniatures will not be changed, because it would propably make me regret pledging for this expansion and consider choosing some other.
I do not understand how the andromeda skill works, I use it on the opponent's turn, but I only lose life on my turn if I activate andromeda, is that it?
I'm *obsessed* with that Scylla mini. And Poseidon looks eerily attractive.
Please change at least the face of Poseidon. He´s too lovecraftian. More like a monster than a god.

While the anchor is a bit much, I actually really liked the Polyphemus sculpt.
Many believe that the cyclops legend was created from misinterpretations of seeing an elephant skull. (see the linked picture) https://siciliangodmother.files.wordpress.com/2013/04/dwarf-elephant-skull.jpg
It even has toes reminiscent of an elephant. I feel the designer had this in mind.
totally agree with "meanwhale" about what he says concerning Poseidon, and Polyphemus, and the ugly Sirens... :-(
Not sure to take this add-on although a "Poseidon add-on" was an auto-buy for me.
What a pity ! :-(
Please... change Poseidon and the Sirens minis at least !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pour Andromede, je trouve que la figurine a un manque par rapport à l'illustration. Si le rocher et les vagues étaient intégrés à la sculpture, je trouve que cela donnerait bien plus d'ampleur à la figurine. Et le rocher et les vagues font complétement partie de ce qui est évoqué lorsqu'on pense à Andromède.
Just like others, i was teaching my son than in greek pantheon and legend, the sirens where half birds and not half fish... And then i saw this �
How large is Poseidon comparatively?
Je viens de les voir 8 tentacules.
Il est mentionné 23 miniatures je n'en vois et compte que 15 , où sont les 8 manquantes?
So, Poseidon is Cthulhu's brother... rather than that of Zeus or Hades... at least by familial resemblance.
@galenosteam.. according to differents sources Periphetes may be the son of the two gods.
Can you be more specific on your sources ?
Sigh. That Andromeda mini. Facepalm. And why no closeups of the sirens? Worried that backers are going to question how this game represents women?
I love this expansion. But I am really disturbed by Polyphemus' face. It looks nothing like a cyclops but like a Lovecraftian monster. Doesn't fit imo in a Greek mythology based set.
You have an errata, Periphetes is son of hephaestus, has nothing to do with poseidon, it would be a success if you change the mini to the other expansion

@meanwhale Itou :(
Clairement une extension que je ne prendrai pas. Tant pis pour Scylla et Andromède (dont j'aime beaucoup l'idée de gameplay). En fait, parmi pas mal de choses que je n'aime pas, par dessus tout je ne comprends pas la figurine de Poséidon et son succès auprès de la communauté...
Arès, Hadès, Athena, Hermès, Apollon, Zeus... Ils ont tous un look classique et excellent, alors pourquoi Poséidon se retrouve affublé d'un masque monstrueux, d'une tête de mort très fantasy en guise de décoration pour la ceinture et de tentacules pour plaire aux fans de Chthulu ? Polyphème dont j'apprécie l'allure générale, pourquoi lui avoir mis une ancre en guise d'arme, c'était pas plutôt un "spécialiste" du lancer de rocher ? Et Thésée, pourquoi cette énorme épée à deux mains ? Et ces sirènes dont vous n'avez pas osé montrer un gros plan, elles ont pas l'air de ressembler à grand chose. :/
J'adorais tout ce que vous avez proposé jusqu'à maintenant (à l'exception de l'add-on de Minos), mais là y a pas mal de faux pas, qui j'espère ne seront pas réitérés par la suite. En plus, 75 dollars (donc 75 euros dans le commerce en France ?), c'est quasiment le prix de deux jeux "classiques" alors pour une simple extension, c'est non.
I can accept the poetic license of puting anchors and 2 handed sword in the game, but now we can't use the excuse "have you looked at the portraits of the epoch?" . Damn that was a good excuse to justify half naked woman :-P
This is one of the most wonderfull game,i'm in love whith this!!!super exited about this new add on,incredible the beauty of the minis!!!...and about the sirens,it's true,they were birdwomen,but the mistake is justified.i really like!!!
@Caleb "By the way, is Polyphemus a time traveller? Where did he get that anchor?": I was wondering the same about Theseus and Periphetes with their big 2H sword and flanged battle mace.
is it possible to play poseidon and other minis of this add on, on another map (in classic mode). I mean on 'non sea' map. which would be weird ...
Wow! There was so much content elsewhere I near completely forgot my favorite Greek God, Poseidon, hadn't made it into the game yet! I love this expansion, though I do wish Poseidon looked less like a sea-monster here. Really impressive work all around, guys!
How can i add optional things like the addon to my cart? Btw it looks awasome!
The person who accepted the sirens sculpt should be fired. No wonder there was no close up.
Poseidon looks wicked though.
Hmmmm....upon a looksy in the interwebs, it appears that Sirens have been portrayed both ways: as bird women and mermaids. Interesting. I prefer the mermaids though, since we have harpies. :)
AWESOME! Amazing, simply amazing. LOVE IT! I'm not a total fan of Polyphemus' look, but I can live with it. Oh, and I'm not sure why everyone is thinking Siren's are bird women. Sirens lived in the sea, and tried to lure Odysseus from his ship just before they sailed into the clutches of Scylla and Charybdus. :)
With that helmet (with two snakes facing each other) Theseus looks like one of those Thulsa Doom's goons from the original Conan movie - might have to make a scenario with him... :)
F* you, take my money ! :)
By the way, is Polyphemus a time traveller? Where did he get that anchor?
freaking awesome minis...these will be making appearance in my D&D campaigns.....me thinks i need to buy 2 of this add on
as for Poseidon........AAA+
This looks great and I'll have to increase my pledge at some point. While I understand that add-ons are entirely optional I do wish they would slow down a bit, (seems as though we are getting an add-on about every two days or so. Again I want to reiterate my understanding that these are completely optional, however the inclusion of Kickstarter exclusive models while not making them must buy certainly has an effect of moving/presenting them as such. This is not meant as a complaint just my observation/opinion. Hopefully no one takes any offense as none is intended, nor is this meant to indicate any dissatisfaction with the campaign so far. Perhaps if the Kickstarter exclusives in the Poseidon and Hephaestus add-ons and any other similar add-on expansions planned that will have a Kickstarter exclusive figure might be grouped together as a small add-on for those who would like the chance to get those Kickstarter exclusive figures but may not be able to afford each optional but at the moment.
Love the Poesidon
And CHAINE NEBULAIRE!
also, don't like the Ctulhu-Poseidon, why are you guys going farthe away from classic looks?
I mean, Athena, Zeus - classic! But then the hell judges and now this...
I just wish it would be less fantasy...
I mean, I can picture a bunch of human(oid) troops riding a ship, but centaurs, spiders or hell hounds as a crew? Thet's just silly
The character figures look so incredible. Love the male and female models.
how exactly ships work?
Who needs Kraken (not part of the Greek Mythology) ... when we got Scylla. This is a must get add-on :D
Love the sculpts - esp Poseidon (thats his leg - right?) Andromada and Scylla
Be good to see the Siren minis??
oh, but agree with others, sirens were (are?) bird-women, not mermaids
was holding off on this as have backed two other KS recently and need to scale back but this expansion eroded resistance.
as you can tell from my name, I kinda like sirens etc
a truly exciting KS project. extremely impressive guys!
Why is Andromeda not wearing a burka? I am feeling all tingly inside ... what does it mean?
But seriously - that all looks amazing - I will be upping my pledge! Nice job!
Is there a mistake with Charybdis card? As it says "Abyssal Maw, Scylla makes a 6 dice area attack on all adjacent areas"
Then in the description below her stat card it says "Her second power, Sea Abyss, is a violent area attack, which combines with her Mighty Throw to cause serious damage to an opposing force."
Show sirens please.
I'm speechless. This expansion is orgasmic.
I'm raising my pledge
