That's a big boy! How's the scale of the unfortunate fellow he's got in his hand compare to your empire troops?

He's pretty much spot on for a tasty empire hero sized snack. Definitely bigger than 28mm historical model. Not as big current AOS humans.

Still can't get over how big this fellow is to paint. I'm not used to it so my usual painting skin techniques have to change. I'm not one for blending I usually go with contrast and such.

I think I've managed to get the skin looking good enough that I'm happy enough with it. I think in going to have a massive tattoo on his fat belly. Happy with were I'm heading with him though. Definitely in the riggt direction.

A bit more work on the giant. I've nearly finished his base as well, because as a rule of thumb. If the base is complete and the mini is nearly finished painting I'm more than happy to use it on the table top in a game.

He's looking incredibly impressive! I'm really liking how the toenails are turning out for some reason.

I agree with AT about the toenails, I'm also digging the rotted stumps of his teeth. Huge kudos for tackling this big boi. His hair and beard look wild.

How's the balance with his base? It looks a bit small, but also the model appears to have a pretty well balanced center of gravity. Any trouble with him tipping over?

I honestly don't know what to say to that. I haven't started painting the toenails, that's just the result of the feet being dry brushed by flesh tones. I mean it seems people like it so maybe I will just leave it how it is. Haha.

I'm not quite sure how to move forward on the ginger. I've hit an impass, it's quite bright, I've tried to add a variation of tones on the back where it is a real mass of hair. Done a bit of highlighting as well. But can't get the desired results.

The base is small agreed. I'd rather it be on a 150*100mm base like the arachnorak spider. But in the game he does go on the chariot base. He has got a good centre of gravity and as of yet has not fallen over. Maybe he will when I have a game this week. That will be the ultimate test.

Thanks for the comments guys, keeps me trooping on with this ever growing project.

Nice work on the giant howie! The ginger hair is looking good, at least from the front and I'm liking the skin you've done. I'd question whether a tattoo is necessary, it might look a bit busy. But easier to judge in person, so you do you

Thanks Zahnib!

Thanks the skin was a buggery. I've never done such a large miniature before. I'm going to wait till after August to do the tattoo if I do decide to go that way.

In other news, the tribes real warlord has come fourth. Grack Giant-taimer, scourge of the Mourn Mountains.

It's the paymaster maneater. I'll show a ic below of the original model. I'm going to use that model for my unit of 6 maneaters with pistols.

Thanks, shame I can't say the same this week absolutely no progress. But I have managed to get hold of the FW beast incarnate miniature. For my new upcoming grimdark gritty army. Faction yet unchosen.

Well as previously stated I've hit painters/ hobbyist block.

Alas I have at least found a shield which I am very happy with. I believe it was a Lego viking shield. It's now used by all the ogre horde. I think its in keeping with the ogres.

I've also been painting the FW incarnate elemental of beasts. However I'm not particularly happy with where I am at with it. I think I'm going to go with a lighter green more of a putrid green. I've out this model up on a pedalstool so I don't know if I'm being overly critical. But it's on hold.

It is a pretty neat model! I think that's a decent green, but i'd be interested to see a lighter one too. My first thought was that a mossy or algae like green might be fitting.

I really like that green, actually. It looks slick and scaly and amphibious. It contrasts in a neat way with the talons and the fur on the back - he's a gestalt beasty, a beast of beasts. There are no wrong answers.

Nice find on the shields too! I wouldn't have guessed that they were Lego. Totally understand running into hobby block sometimes. I think we all have lots of half-fiinished projects!

It's been quite a while since I posted any movement on the Warhammer armies.

There has been a few minor progresses. But with no games to motivate me I've really got myself into a painting rut.

I've received a 3D printed giant from Etsy. It took a while to arrive, it was stated that it would take 5weeks but I hadn't paid any thought to it while ordering.

I'm very impressed with it to be honest. Wish I hadn't sold my 3D printer.

I love that print. (Duncan Shadow) makes some nice models. I printed him a while back. May have to print him and his brother at GW sizes for AOS. Great job on his eyes.

Thanks a lot mate. It's similar to my ogres. I was recently recommend to get a make up foundation brush as they're cheap and come into great use a dry brush.

I googled who he was. You're not wrong the similarities are definitely there. It is a great model, more than likely I'm going to get the others in the series.

thanks, I was pretty taken aback by how good the print was. There was one deep line which I definitely could/ should have sorted prior to painting. There were a few poc marks where the supports had been removed.

yeah I hope he does do a few more hill giants. Think there are 4 currently

Thanks for the kind words guys I'll hopefully get some more photos up soon.

After seeing the new undead minis coming in from oathmark I knew it was time to get some more skellie bobs on the go.

I wasn't overly fond of the mini I had been using for my wight king/ krell stand in. So I knew I wanted to convert a chaos model to be the king. I found this treasure in amoungst the metal out and I knew what had to be done. He's not finished by a long shot and I definitely have a lot of work to do on the elf.

Presenting my newest Lord of Undeath.

Not a massive update. But I have had this guy on my to do list for quite some time. So I was very happy to have the motivation to get cracking on him it today.

A old zombie dragon, converted with the newer kits plastic wings.

I've also prepped some other models including the FW Incarnate element of fire.

Mid day update for once.

I've started making headway on the Fire element incarnate.

Not as nice a model as the beast incarnate. But pretty cool, unsure if the aesthetic fits in with any of current armies, but maybe a future warriors of chaos army could follow it around worshipping it as a fire God.

Been away for a while, but it looks like you've been buys! What an epic model that lord of undeath is! Really digging it. Haven't seen that Fire Incarnate model, looks really interesting - love the detail on his halberd.

Yeah, been juggling a few projects to be honest. Hopefully some will get off the ground soon. I wanted to do this conversion last year when I took Heinrich Kemmler and Krell to a tournament, however I couldn't find the model.

It was a pretty hard find to be honest. I doubt I'm doing the model justice, but we'll see

Evening Syro, I seem to remember the dragon being released in 6th edition that's certainly where I first laid eyes on it in a white dwarf. Originally Zacharias the ever living I believe. Lovely model if it won't see the table often.

Been doing a fee bits of terrain at the moment. Received them from a recent MOM miniatures Kickstarter. Which I hope to show some of those models off shortly.
