New recruits...

Managed to get hold of some more giants recently. Here are two more C28 giants along with a lovely old minifigs cyclops.

 The cyclops is a pretty small figure by todays standards similar in stature to some of the old citadel/asgard hillgiants. I think that as long as they hit really hard in a game they're height isn't an issue!

Next up I managed to get these two figure pretty cheaply in an ebay auction.  On the left is a Ral Partha frost giant and far right another C28 giant. ( Foundry viking added for scale!!).

Having 3 bodies and 3 heads gives me some options as to the arrangements of the giants. I intially though of putting the viking style head on the body with the scale mail tunic, then the eye patch head on the body holding the cannon ball in his left hand. ( This combination was the one used in the drawing from the first citadel compenduim). That would leave the chaos head to go with the head hunter body. Hmmm decisions!

Did a bit of conversion work on this fellow to give him two weapons. The axe I had in the bits box but the handle had been snipped of years earlier. I remade the handle and drilled a hole in the hand. Then it was a case of gluing in place and the sculpting a hand around it. Think he will look pretty mean when he's finished!

Thanks for looking!
