Marauder Giant!

I've wanted one of these awesome models for a very long time. Ever since I started up my Orc's and Goblin's, I've been itching to get one (even though its probably not a great choice), but the ebay prices were always a little steep for me.

I remember one of the first games I ever had of Warhammer where I was up against my friends Orc's and Goblin's. He had this model and promptly picked up my Dwarf General and stuffed him down his pants. A humiliation that I have never forgotten to this day! But a great memory. Ever since then I have always been a bit nervous around giants, especially with my Dwarfs!

So it was when I saw it on ebay for about $20 AUS, I thought I might throw in a bid and see what happens...

But something went wrong...

No matter what bid I entered, I was outbid straight away, but there was no increase in the bid at all. I didn't know what was going on, and eventually gave it up for loss. Then the next day I got an email saying I won it, for $55 AUS no less, an absolute bargain. So then I waited. After 4 weeks (should have been here in less than 2), I gave it up for loss. Then Yesturday, 7 weeks after it had been posted it arrived. Amazing and meant to be!

So I spent last night assembling this iconic model, and pinning it in places so I could show this wip pic today. Hope you like it.

Here you can see it in the thick of my wip Hammerer's. Great model. Please note the absence of pants.

Tonight I hope to do the base up, and hopefully if the weather is kind, start painting it. Looks like my WAAAGH got a GIANT update....

Thanks for looking!


  1. Not a complete absence of pants. Clearly your Dwarf lord found his way into the Giant's underpants. Pretty sure that is worse.

    Just trying to help. :P

    1. Cheers...think I need to shave my head and dye it orange ;)

  2. Lovely model, can't wait to see it painted!! :)

    1. Thanks! I'm looking forward to giving this a few licks of paint.
