Those conversions all look very promising.

Itís funny how changing the nose makes a big difference. I did something similar with some GW orcs a friend donated to me but which didnít fit at all with the style of my collection. I rounded off their ears and most of the teeth, then sculpted a bulbous nose on each and they transformed into fairly convincing ogres...

Thanks! It's a bit 'hit and hope' to start with, but any that don't work out can be 'extras' when the big battles come around ...

Yes - the GW orcs are so distinctive (and odd), but a lot of that has to do with their noselessness. Their heads, hands and weapons are already 1/32 scale or thereabouts, which helps!

Here's the first converted giant painted up. It's a very quick paintjob, but there's no point spending too much time on these chaps if I'm to get 30-odd done!

Quick paint job or not, that giant looks great! He certainly has the right primitive and brutal vibe to be a hill giant.

Really nice work on the one with the Obelisk style trousers. The green stuff work to do a new face and a belly really make him a giant. And for a quick paint job he looks super.
