You can find Work In Progress pics on the Instagram site, for those who are unaware. You don't have to have an instagram account to view them as far as I know, unlike Facebook. Why Instagram, Andy? Well, it's easy to take a pic on my crappy phone and upload it to Instagram without messing about with server uploads etc to get one on here.

Currently working on the Giant (named 'Mucklegeet') from the Kickstarter if you want to take a look...

Very impressed with that Giant. I liked the hairy chest look myself.
What about some doors as extra leg armour?

Looking great.
I prefer the bare chest - if you're gonna have body hair on a giant, it should be all over, for warmth, not just in the obvious places.
I suppose the climate would dictate?  :scratchhead:

Really like the shields as a belt, and its a good indicator of scale. Maybe mix them up with with either dwarf or goblin ones for variety?

As for the unfortunate he's about to devour, I'm seeing a terrified goblin or halfling about to enter the next existence via a giant's esophagus, trying desperately in vain to escape from it's clutches, and maybe stabbing at the giant's hand with something, to no avail.

I can just pick out a skull on his neck, and a clutch of a few differing races would make a nice change than just human.

Yes, that's why i took the chest hair off. If I do that much hair, I've got to do hair everywhere, and then you lose the skin entirely, and it would look awful. Better to paint him hairy if anyone can be bothered.

What happened to the original seated Giant? Is that still being worked on?

Back-burner for now. Needs too much work to complete, as it involves making a covered wagon and stuff, and it would cost way more than the 75 I was supposed to be making this giant for. (Even the new one will cost more than that, but it will have less moulds than the sitting one due to lack of cart etc so will at least cost less than that one.)
