Giants to Sea Elves



Richard aka "Orclord" of Stuff of Legends posted an updated photo of some of his giant collection on a few Oldhammer FB groups and it got me thinking about the fact that I've been meaning to do the same thing. End of "Big April" seems like a good time to do it. My own collection is not nearly as large, and I don't have any where good to photograph them all, but for what it's worth...

FWIW, the unpainted giants I still need to work on are: the Mantic giant, the Otherworld giant, and three Reaper Bones giants.



Also, following up on a request for a close-ups of the victim who is about to become lunch for the Heresy giant:





Speaking of giants... not getting any more painted this April, but prepping the next giant(s). I'm debating a head-swap on the Mantic giant -- still undecided.






I've also started prepping minis for the last two months of the Old World Army Challenge. The next two months are going to be horribly busy at work, and I will be doing a bit of travel. So finding time for painting will be challenging.


Since this photo a couple days ago, I've got the separ unit, champion, and the rest of the chariot prepped & primed. Plus I sculpted a new top for the wand on the elf witch, and primed here as well. Just the wardancers to clean & prime now.

Here's the broken wand, with a bit of wire on top to give me something to sculpt on. The idea will be to give it an oyster shell, with the globe in the other hand being a pearl.

  2. So impressive! Also interesting to see the comparative sizes, I hadn't really grasped how big Muckles and that Grenadier giant are before now!

    1. They are definitely the largest, but the Ultraforge giant isn't much smaller. Similar to the Grenadier giant, he's got a deeper & hunched stance.

  3. That pile of giants and other big folk is very very impressive!

    Which Reaper giants do you have? And are you going to get any of the new ones when Kickstarter 4 models become available?

    1. I have a few of the newer Reaper Bones fire giants, including the scaled up version of the female fire giant I've painted in grey scale in the pic above. I think the others are the jailer and the king.

  4. Never seen so many giants! They're all beautiful. They must have taken six or seven 28mm armies worth of paint. Don't tell Orclord, but I think yours are nicer.

    Who made the long nosed giant in the second row, fourth from left, next to female frost giant? I must have one.

    1. Thanks, that's a huge compliment!

      The long nosed guy you asked about is one of the later C28 giants from Citadel, though I had to sculpt a new club for him.
