This week has all been about getting one figure painted. The figure as you will now be able to work out is the OMG element of the diroama. Sorry it isn’t a dragon or the other things some of you guessed at and I hope you aren’t too disappointed. Well done to Bogenwald though, he rightly guessed a giant following last weeks post.
The figure in question is from Reaper and is a Hill Giant which goes by the name of “Krug”. He is a very big chap, solid metal and weighing a ton. Well OK not a ton but very heavy for a figure. So heavy that fixing his arms and head which were all seperate castings into place proved a challenge. Fortunately I go there in the end and once fully assembled the painting could begin. Given the weight, holding the “miniature” and keeping it steady proved difficult at times and painting in instalments became necessary.
Below are various photos of the figure including a couple where he has been positioned on the base and some of the ground work has been done. This coming week will see the fifth and final figure painted and positioned. All being well there will then only be little bit to tidy up so I should get it completed. With the diorama complete you will hopefully be able to get the perspective on this chap relative to the others.
