BIG BU**ERS

This unit counted as Chaos warriors when I was playing Warhammer, more beefy than marauders, but I didn't want to stray from the barbarian theme and get figures with plate armour. Instead of sickening chaos mutations beloved by GW (and my Nurgle worshipping son) my marauders just grow huge when exposed to the warping effects of Chaos (did Michael Moorcock ever sue GW for stealing his ideas? he should)



3 Ral Partha giants, the 2 with horned helmets emind me of the giants in the famous Frazetta painting . The guy in the middle looks like my father in law. The right hand chap has a new axe as the original club was a bit weedy

2 from Grenadier. again an axe change on the right hand guy (spellcheck is telling me axe is spelt incorrectly, but it likes ax)


A Reaper giant with GW minotaur hand and axe


ahh, a really old figure from Asgard with a GW axe added.

    1. He was a bit daunting at first, but not a bad old stick so long as you can show an interest in Guinness and rugby.

  2. The coolness continues. This army rocks, pure and simple.

    1. Cheers Gareth, glad you like it. More to come. Re-reading Gaskill's Witchfinders at the moment, not finding it as depressing as I did before, but still a grim tale.

    2. That's one I need to get. I've painted a couple of witches which I need to post up, but at the moment I am ploughing on with 15mm.

  3. Really nice old figures. I love the paintjob and conversions.

  4. Nice big guys - how did you resist the temptation to put snow on the base along with a Conan style figure battling them?
