    'Ere be Giants.

    I have a whole bunch of Giants knocking around my hobby room.
    What with the Storm of Magic and all .....
    I thought I would try and get some painted.
    I thought I would start 'another' project log to motivate me.
    (It worked out so well with my 'Tale of four steam tanks' log. )

    Here is a Giant I have already painted. He is for my Night Goblin army.




    These are some of the others I have in mind to build and paint ...

    I have another one of these I thought I would paint up for the Empire:



    I have this guy I can use as a vampire Counts Giant:



    and amongst this unlikely looking pile of bits is one for my Tomb Kings: (This lot is now in "The Dip")



    Obviously I have one of these:



    Planning to build him for a pirate themed army.

    I also have one of these :





    Now I know what you thinking ... your thinking 'Harry, surely that is Beast man from He-Man' .... and you would be wrong ....
    clearly it is a Slave giant for my Mountain themed Ogre kingdoms army. The paint scheme is going to be more Yeti than Big Foot.
    I think he will look well with the new minis GW have done.

    He will need some gluing and Green stuff ... But he is not bad for scale :



    So just stick with me on this one.

    There's more:

    @Satan: I was thinking about doing another one of the He-man Beast men above as a Beasts/Cygor type Giant thing.
    But I thought I might wait and see what GW have done before starting on that one.

    I have a couple more vintage ones .... not so sure who or what they are.

    I think this one was a mountain Giant from Grenadier:



    and this guy ... I think he is a Storm Giant and he is either from Ral Partha OR Grenadier:

    Re: 'Ere be Giants.

    I think that is all of them for now.
    I am going to get them all built today.
    I will also see if I can get some paint on some of them.

    No he said something like 'He who ends up with the most toys, wins'.

    Maybe that was someone else.

    Re: 'Ere be Giants.

    Here is Beastman or Yetox?
    With a bit of green stuff and some bits from the left overs from the Giant Kit.
    I am thinking some chains left dangling from the wrist bracelets for the broken shackle look?





    I liked the grabbing look but this rock could have been made for his hand.
    I coundn't resist ... I think it could work as an icicle.
    You can also see from these close ups how great the fur will look.

    Man, you have SO much stuff

    Mind sharing with the uninitiated where this one is from?


    I've never seen one of these and they do look cool. Wouldn't be too far off in my WoC army

    I do have a lot of stuff ... it's true.
    It was one of the first Forgeworld models.
    Back when they started with busts and so on they did this guy, a big Night Goblin, a big Orc boss on a boar. (amongst other things)
    He wasn't designed a s a Giant .... just a large scale mini ... but he is perfect "Bonecrusher" material.
    Not sure where you would find one now?
    I picked mine up damaged. He is missing his necklace ... you can see I have made a start on a new one.

    Re: 'Ere be Giants.

    That giant that has an axe... The one that was one of citadel's first giants... Can you put him next to a regular-sized infantry model? I want to see how big he is.

    Great log Harry. Can't wait to see what you can do with Beastman and the FW Troll.

    Re: 'Ere be Giants.

    So... Because Citadel, Grenadier, and Ral Partha combined haven't made enough giant miniatures for you Harry, you've started raiding your childrens toybox to create your own?

    I think an intervention may be needed.

    Seriously though, those two giants you're unsure of who the makers might be, don't look like either Grenadier or Ral Partha mini's to me.

    Tonight I'll look through the old catalogues I have. Just in case I'm wrong.

    Glad to see you doing vintage stuff from other manufacturers besides citadel though.
