Default Slave Giant

Gorbash the Ogre Tyrant has sucessfully captured and break the will of the Sky Titan to do his bidding. Thus the Ogre Tyrant shall be titled Gorbash GiantBreaker, The Bane of Sky Titans.

And so it has come to pass, one of the biggest organic model I have painted. Getting the skin color was a tough one and I learned through trial and error. Many thanks to the forum members for their input and feedback or the Giant could look like some foreign dude that stayed in the sun too long.

The Giant kit is pure awesome modelling dream as there are loads of bits to charactify the Giant. Although some says the rules for a Slave Giant is kinda meh, as there is no stubborn. But I feel painting a beaten up Giant to be a big challenge and I therefore went for it, ultimately giving me a great experience in skin painting and the ruination of some of my brushes.

So here is it, the biggest kit GW made for Warhammer.

Slave Giant


Soon I will start on GW's biggest kit of their entire miniature range.. guess what it is?

Cheers

The detail on that model is amazing
As faol said, those bruises, the blood, it all looks very realistic

What does the 'cathay' mean, next to the skeleton?
Curious about that... :P

Cathay is the warhammer equicalent to china.
on another note, nice looking giant! most giants you see out there are either to flat or to exaxerated, so ists good to see one of the rare great ones.

Cheers everyone, it was a joy to paint. Now I scratch my head on how to pack this model and bring it to game.

Patience Ninja Master, I normally paint in the morning and evenings. At night, the Family Guy comic continues...

Mm, I'm working with my independent stockist here in Malaysia as a part time to earn some pocket money.
