Sorting through my old Dragontooth minis I came across these two. Thought I'd share via my blog as they don't seem to get as much love as they should!

Glad you posted. I had not thought about the storm giant in decades.

I painted one back in the late 70's. It was a beast to glue at the waist!

Now that is the ultimate Mumak. Proper old school. Thanks for posting.

Would love to see the Storm Giant assembled and painted per Gygax's color scheme in the 1977 1e AD&D Monster Manual. Gary's color schemes were actually pretty good. Cheers!

That Oliphant design is awesome – thanks for sharing!

Although I read my 1977 Monster Manual like it was scripture, I'm not sure if it would have worked for this model.

This model is more Peter Max than Gary Gygax – there is more than a whiff of psychedelic substances in this sculpt, especially when you see it in person!

My son, 9-10 at the time, got a Dragontooth catalog when we attended one of those late 70's cons in Pennsylvania. When he got home, he traced the pictures on to shrinky dink paper and baked hundreds of figures.
