Hi Guys!

Thought I'd bounce this off you learned ones before proceeding anywhere else. Received this "green" from Jim today. My first thought was, "Wow! This should be a mini!"  It was supposed to be issued through one of the more prominent figure companies, but due to some "minor" disagreements, it didn't. In case your wondering, he's dragging a wild boar. I can add more pictures, if necessary.

My question to you is, "What do you think?" I know there's alot of figures out there these days. Otherworld is putting out some awesome figs! Would anyone be interested in a limited edition run of this feller?

Ideas? Suggestions?

He's approximately 3" tall.

Here's a comparison picture.

Very nice detail, like the toes, the veins, and the skin in general.  But how tall is it?  Can you shoot a smaller photo with a 25mm or 28mm figure in it for scale?

[Edit:  That is frickin' huge.  I originally thought it was half that size.]

Nice mini, one can never have enough giant minis, particularly if one is looking to run the G series of modules some time... I recognize the axeman to the left of the giant as a Grenadier gold box mini, so that's 25mm as a comparison.

Very nice detail. Would possibly look at getting a couple of them if produced (mainly for G1 as previously mentioned by mandalay)

Yes, he is full of surprises! He's actually done quite a bit of 15mm and 25mm historical stuff for a few companies.
