There will supposedly be a new giant model and it will supposedly be plastic, but it might not be this year.

When I asked about it on GD UK they said they'd start working on it some time during this year. It's going to be a multi part plastic set with parts to make an average giant, a slave giant or a chaos giant.

As far as I know, the master-miniature is finished. It 'just' needs to be prepared for the casting process or something...not completely sure.

Isn't the casting process very time consuming when you do it for a plastic model compared to metal models? (That's why it's so expensive)
My point is we may still have a lot of time of waiting left. Just look at the gnoblars for example, the three-ups were finnished over a year before they were released.

Yeah, I think you are right with that. At least that's what I was told too.

I got the first info about them working on a plastic giant nearly 8 month ago at the german Games Day. No idea when we'll finally see the finished sprues...might as well be next year. :/

I guess even if the casting thing would be solved already, they'd still wait for a fitting release date...

Yeah the plastic giant is apperently finished and is slowly being converted to the plastic kits. Expect to see it in about a year or so.

From the GD Atlanta report at The Realm of Inisfail:

Sorry about the blurriness of the photo, someone standing beside me bumped into me and then the display was blocked from view after that, so I couldn't get another pic. But look in the back, it's there!

That is a 3-up model of a plastic Ogre Irongut...

Is that a Wood Elf green on the corner of that Pic?

A giant irongut :eek:
It can't be it though, giant don't have armor. And they certainly won't look that much like an irongut anyway. Maybe that's an forgeworld ogre-irongut-that-was-mutated-because-it-was-too-close-to-the-Great-Maw

Naw, it's a 3-up.

Damn elf-thing is too blurry to tell if is Woodelf or not, but I'm gonna guess it's a green of one of the High elf characters for Lustria

I think that thing in the corner is a LOTR model. It's slightly smaller than the high elves and on a round base.

Darn your right, I was gonna say it looks like the new HE hero with bow but that has to be a lotr model.
That is a three-up in the background by the way.

If it is a LOTR model then its either an unarmoured Wood Elf Bowman, A Ranger of the North or a Ranger of Gondor.

I'm guessing it's a Mirkwood Elf for the upcoming Mirkwood supplement.

I believe its Haldir, or Legolas

Its possiable but I have heard they were in plastic.
