You could probably run a mammoth as a giant. Both are big, attract arrows and are difficult to control. You could tack on a ranged attack for the mammoth or a giant for archers in a howdah shooting or the big guy throwing rocks, but why bother - their main impact in a battle-level game is shock and awe in close combat. Iím of the opinion that keeping it simple with a re-skin is the way to go when importing a troop type int Oathmark.

Great idea! A giant would be perfect. Thanks!

I got a wonderful mammoth off eBay, for my barbarian army.
Superb resin model.
Cannot remember the company, but just do a search?

That looks wonderful!

Great start, and the chariots are a nice addition. Looking forward to seeing them painted up.

I second the others saying that you could use a mammoth. Itís pricey but I think the Shieldwolf mammoth is very nice.

I found the mammoth, but it doesn't seem to come with those riders.  What range are they from?

There is a mammoth set for the Song of Ice and Fire game, no idea how well they scale up though. (Edit I see these have already been mentioned!)

Reaper did a rather nice 'War Mammoth' in their Reaper Bones 5 kickstarter - you can sometimes find them on ebay for around the 30 quid mark.

My barbarian horde was mostly Copplestone cave men and women.
Just loved the sculpting.

Hi guys,

Here some progress shots of my first 20 warriors. All have been base coated  and given a wash of Agrax Eartshade. I then  highlighted the skin and added some red glazes here and there. The clothes and wood were given a very light drybrush of Vallejo Dark Sand and the metals wwre highlighted too.

Now onto basing!
