I don't mind the thread crashing.  :::cheers:::

Nice looking ogres, Shadespyre. Who's the guy in the back-right?

Warlord, I know of a couple of Roman, Greek, and cyclops style giants from Ral Partha/IWM.... unfortunately they're all skeletal and I don't think that's what you had in mind.  :-D

There are some 75mm and other large scale (90mm, etc.) historical miniatures/models/toy soldiers that might work. That's what I did for last year's Pleasant Surprise for Darknight. http://warhammer-empire.com/theforum/index.php?topic=51775.250  I found quite a few on eBay.

I think Mierce Miniatures do a cyclops. I've also seen a few repaints of this toy that looked pretty good: https://store.safariltd.com/products/mythical-realms-cyclops-figurines-801829

It would be such a huge improvement to have a better search function again.

The Brush and Palette / Re: A poll ... metal, plastic, resin ...

Oh, I guess I'm another #5. I'd love to be a #1, but the technology has moved on and there are too many excellent plastic and resin models to ignore. And we all love our bits, right?

That's where I'm at.

I've grown tired of assembling rank & file plastic kits. I'd rather have good one-piece metal minis. (Separate weapons are OK.) But there are many plastic kits that are good, inexpensive, or both -- and can't be ignored. Some of the GW undead are great! But honestly, I'm tempted to trade in the remainder of my old 4th ed. Empire plastics that are still on sprues/in boxes for Artizan, Foundry, or other metal landsknechts. They're more likely to get painted. I wan't more halberdiers. But I hate assembling them.

I've still got mixed feelings on resin. I love the Westfalia halflings, and the detail is good, etc. But I'm starting to wish they were metal. I think the largest reason they're not all painted already is dealing with the bendy weapons. I think I'm OK with resin for large, bulky minis (*cough*cough*giants*)  :wink: terrain and maybe an occasional unique model, but not for most human/humanoid figures.

I think it depends on the resin, too. Not sure what the difference is, but when I painted some Warmachine stuff a few years ago, their resin was way different. Much harder, easier to scrape & sand, not as bendy. Then there's the other new materials... Bones, PVC, etc... I appreciate that manufacturers are experimenting. And like Resin, I think Bones is decent for really large, bulky models -- and even cheaper than resin. But there are definite limitations.

As much as I like metal, it's good to see experimentation & adaptation to create better models or cheaper models where possible. Not that it always works out for the best.  :wink:

Great report! Looks like the tau mopped up the benighted nurgelers. I have never had any luck against the forces of nurgle and I had thought they were almost unkillable. Nice work!

Of course, if I am correct, finding the earlier reference on this website will be extremely difficult, because
1. photobucket's policy sucks bigly
2. the search function here sucks bigly
