The Great Beast

And yes, this thing is a beast.  One of the hands is just as big as a regular 28mm figure!

It's another one of those items where you have to paint most of it in individual pieces and then put it all together for the dramatic finish...

While the legs and arms are hard to position, the ammo feeds are a huge nightmare.  The double row makes it brutal...

I had to hit it with a hair dryer until it was almost at its melting point, and then grit my teeth as I forced it into place.  Let's just say that it was mighty toasty on the fingers!  Using gloves was not an option, since you would never be able to get the thing into the position that you need.

It is a little mind boggling to think about how many pieces there are in this guy.

Quite a pile of resin!

Combined with the base, it's pretty heavy.

And guess what... there's another one on the way!!


  1. Man that would scare the heck out of me on a Battlefield. Outstanding.

  2. Fantastic looking miniature(?). Lovely use of of colour.

  3. Great work as always James! As always, I'm a huge fan of how you vary the tones within the color, which creates a lot of interest on parts of a model which are usually quite boring and flat.

    1. Thanks, as always! There were dozens of very challenging surfaces on this guy. Drove me nuts :-)
