'Say, did I ever tell you kids about the time i took a load of Qualudes and decided to design and paint a wargames figure? Enos, fetch me my Whisky-Hose. (Leans Back in chair, rests foot on his son-by-his-own-sister's ready-humped back, shifts corncob pipe to other side of deformed mouth, spits blood, phlegm and syphilitic bile). Well, My good friend Bill from TMP challenged me to an abortion-making contest.."

Feel free to chip in and add to the story. Also feel free, Bill, to make remarkably snide remarks about anyone who says what they feel about this piece of Bleeped text.

I am inordinately proud to present to you - some big fantasy dude:

Some big fantasy dude

Now, I don't claim that this is the best figure in the world, or that the paintjob is anything special (though I did use multiple washes and highlights...). Rather, this is a very old figure that has been on my workbench forever and I am mightily glad to have finally finished him!

Some big fantasy dude from behind

I'm not even sure what this figure is, though if memory serves, he comes from the 15mm Jacobite fantasy line currently produced by Stronghold Miniatures. [Correction: He comes from Evil Gong, another of my favorite 15mm fantasy lines.] From the style of the clothing, I think he might represent a Sumerian god of some kind.

Size comparison

As you can see, he towers over a 15mm Dwarf. (He is 26mm from foot to eye-level.)

I gave him red skin to make him look sufficiently non-human. I'm not sure if that thing on his head is a hat or a hairdo (but note that the severed head has the same 'do). He was originally on a green grassy base, but I thought better of that and - failing to remove the flock! - overpainted the flock and created a desert base.
