Anyway, here it is: it's a pretty simple creation. All I did was take this toy from Poundland, straighten out his axe a bit with some hot water, put a coat of car primer on him, and paint him. You could probably do more to make him look good; I'm aware that he looks pretty rough. A design on the shield would be pretty cool, for instance, and I could have done more with the mould lines. Still, given that he cost me £1 plus the last of my really big Reaper bases, I'm pretty comfortable with how it worked out.
|The toy line is called Terra and this guy is "Halldor the Raider."|
In the meantime, my Frost Giants from the Reaper Bones 3 Kickstarter arrived and this guy is totally incompatible with them in terms of style and scale, but whatever. He's done and he looks OK, so I am content.
