Ray Harryhausen’s iconic special effects work on the classic movie Jason and the Argonauts has a lot to answer for here! Greek myths have been told and retold for thousands of years and make great material for gaming, especially with the plethora of excellent figures out there nowadays. I tend to play Osprey’s Of Gods And Mortals as rules, although have been known to try out bigger battles with Dragon Rampant and my own Midgard rules.
