Does anyone have some good suggestions for miniature sources besides the official ones created by Northstar games?

The only game I already have which would fit well is Blood Rage, but that would be limited to the Norse faction, and the Gods mini's aren't very big.

It's a shame Myth doesn't fit well thematically, because the way they do monster groups with a Boss, mini-boss, and minion fits nicely with the Gods, Legends, Mortals structure.

I think some of the Northstar mini's are pretty cool, but many I think are kind of awful (Heracles).

I haven't played this game yet and I'd really like to give it a try, just need to find some appropriate mini's.

It depends on how close to the source material you want to be. You can make your own 'Gods' and 'Legends' using any miniatures you own.

For example,[url] http://chicagoskirmish.blogspot.com/2014/05/of-gods-mortals-...[/url] and http://jeffsgamingpage.blogspot.com/search/label/Of%20Gods%2...

You could always check out Reaper Miniatures (https://www.reapermini.com/) for Legends and maybe even a God or two. Check Crocodile Games as well (https://www.crocodilegames.com/store/)

The usual recommendation for Greek gods and godesses goes to http://www.wargamesfoundry.com/our-ranges/greek-mythology/go...

I find most of them pretty horrid, especially the females, but know them only from photos.

Another less obvious option might be Heroclix. The Asgardians of course for the nordic pantheon, Hercules as well, ...sure, all a bit cheesy. "Golden Glider"
gives off a Greek vibe, too. Maybe a peeved off Aphrodite?

You should look at the minis from Mythic Battles: Pantheon, this is a Kickstarter still waiting for the pledge manager to open so you may be able to get a late pledge in.

The minis look awesome.

I missed Mythic Battles: Pantheon - looks like that'd be impossible or insanely expensive to get into now.

Ugh. I'd love to get that game - right up my boys alley and they could us ethe minis in OGaM as well.

I was lucky and got in on it. Can't wait for it.

There is talk that they may sell the starter in their web store at some point and/or have a follow up KS. Also, eventually they will have a KS for the Norse Pantheon.... so keep an eye on it.

Norse would be fantastic - we're big fans.

Man I just want to find some reasonably priced minis to use for this game in the short term. We can get armies of mortals - but the larger Gods and Legends are tough to source at a price that's not out of sight.

Geekmail me an offer for the minis from my copy of Age of Mythology: The Boardgame. It has Greek, Egyptian, and Norse minis. It even has three levels, just like OGAM, with different shaped bases so you can tell them apart. Here are some sample minis:
