The God Set

I recently acquired a copy of Osprey's Of Gods and Mortals, another 'Song of Blades..' variant.

The 'Song of' system works incredibly well and OG&M looks interesting.

I decided to set up an Egyptian Warband based on the God Set - 54 mm model available from Northstar Miniatures.

Only the God is 54 mm, the rest of the warband (Legends and ordinary bods) are 28 mm (or 28mm & 15mm etc).

One of the reason I chose this theme is because I can see this warband fitting in with some of my In Her Majesty's Name 'firms'.

Set was a very important God whose role changed throughout Egypt's long history but towards the end he was the God of the desert, storms, chaos, Upper Egypt and foreigners. He was also a Trickster God, cf Loki and has been compared to Satan.

His great enemy was Horus who represented Order and the Nile.

For more information, see Osprey's War of Horus and Set, currently on sale for the princely price of 99p for Kindle.
