I started to post about Amazons at Troy here:
But realized it's probably a topic that deserves its own thread.
Amazons are only really mentioned in passing in the Iliad. But associated texts place them at Troy fighting as Trojan allies. Most famously Achilles slays the Amazon Queen.
The Amazons have a few notable traits. They are considered fierce fighters. Some at least fight from horseback. The only combatants at Troy to do so?
I'm not an ancient art expert, but it seems actual ancient Greek art depicts them thus:
Indicating that women's obsession with yoga pants and leopard print began far earlier than initially suspected.
I believe a plastic Amazon kit would be well received by the gaming community. They work for any historical Greek game with a side of myth (like Mortal Gods) They work nicely in fantasy... picture plastic WGA Amazons battling plastic WGA skeletons. They are potentially useful to all but the most hidebound historical gamer. And you know, Deathfields Amazons sound pretty cool.
