Well, this was an unexpected but certainly worth the change! Originally I had planned to kitbash a Bloodthirster using the Fire Giant model from the D&D Wizkid model range. The wings I had spare didn’t look right when I was choosing the bitz to test out, the Exalted Daemon theme wasn’t going to work for this model.
After looking around the Warscroll app for inspiration, I came across the Chaos Siege Giant, a perfect fit for my armoured giant model! So I did some kitbashing to give the model a ‘Warhammer AoS’ aesthetic to make it look as though it would fit with the rest of the collection.
This is what I ended up creating as a result……..
Looks stunning, just jaw dropping for me to be honest. For just £15 this model is pretty decent to use as a substitute model. However, since it’s monopose and has the issue of bent parts (same as with any model in this range by D&D Wizkid range) that’s a drawback that can be seen. I can’t fix the issue as I’m very inexperienced at readjusting parts, so I’ll make some sort of excuse that it’s a bent weapon.
This Giant is what I call a ‘Magmadroth Slayer’, a Chaos Siege Giant who wears the hide of a slain Magmadroth and improvised it as armour.
Maybe I’ve been playing too much Dark Souls, but this model would look just right as a mini boss for the game. I’m pretty glad I got this model as it’s a great template for any Giant model to kitbash.
I’ll be posting the finished result very soon!
Until next time,
