I think we have all done it – the shiny new toy syndrome. I know I have and I have done it again but with a twist. One of my favorite Adventuring Companies/Leagues/whatever game you are playing is Lord Greystoke's: better known as Tarzan of the Apes. When I saw the advertisement for the new Giant Ape from Wizkids, I thought to myself, "Self, that would make an excellent addition as a Mangani (Great Ape) for Tarzan's team!" Next time I'll check the dimemsions!

This is good.

That looks very much like the traditional Kong!

You can call the first scenario Kong Quest.

Thanks for all the comments. Though I purchased by mistake it was a pleasure to paint and will fit in nicely with my collection.

That is impressive – shows that serendipity has a role – great work and thanks for sharing

Chuckaroob, what's a blood monkey?

He'll bite your face off.

He is tough!

That figure is huge. In the D&D campaign I'm playing in my wizard just levelled up and now has the 'Polymorph' spell. I was told that the most effective thing to polymorph into in combat is the Giant Ape and I was looking around for a figure to use. I saw this one on-line and was tempted, but then I saw it in a store and realized that in 28mm scale it really is King Kong sized! I need something a bit smaller :)

ScottWashburn – When I purchased him I definitely did not check the size. I was expected "larger" apes to go with my Tarzan company. One of the best mistakes I made.

ScottWashburn-The 5e Giant Ape is pretty much that big. It's supposed to represent something like Kong in the game.

ScottWashburn – Nice to see someone else made the exact same mistake!
