Given how heavy the box was, I was expecting a decent amount of lead and I wasn't disappointed. This critter is HUGE! It was also full of the old-school charm I had hoped from pictures online.

I really like the stitching detail on his clothes - chunky and rope-like, linking together what look like whole animal hides. And, as you'll see later in the scale shots, that is basically a whole tree in his fist.

Now we've reached my favourite detail - the barrel prison! Can you see those halfling hands gripping the bars? There's a scenario in that one detail alone!

Yup, he's a giant alright, and I'll look forward to painting him in the fairly near future. I think I'll pick up the Expert Flesh paint quintet when I'm at Foundry for BOYL to get smoother transitions on such large areas of skin before I even think of it, though.
What's your favourite giant miniature? And do you have any tips for tackling such a big figure?
