Brilliant details, color scheme and execution on all those figures. Now I must order some for myself!

Lovely paint jobs...can I just ask how tall is the new giant?

It might just be his stance, but his legs look a little short  :?

It's not the stance, he does have stumpy legs. He's about 45-50mm tall I'd say, very much a sort of Ogre, Small Giant kind of dude.

Great work on those! There's something all too horribly human about the way you've rendered those giants: the whiff of too much cheap booze and perhpas a hint of Sawney Bean?

I remember I had the 'Hamlyn Book of Horror' as a kid (still got it somewhere) and it had a bit on Sawney Bean in it, with big lurid pictures. Scared the crap out of me!

A great paint job on a cracking figure.
In some ways it is better that he is shorter, as you say, he would make a great Ogre and maybe an excellent Oni-type figure too.

Thanks for confirming...like you said, would sort well as an Ogre  :)

Lovely work, and I really like this range.

Not quite sure that panthers really fit into the world of early English myth and folklore that the rest of the range is sprung from, but maybe Conquest were thinking of the big cat of Bodmin etc  ;)
