The Mega Gargant Thread

Recommended Posts

Since its the Sons of Behemat release day, and given the size and immensity of the kit I thought it'd be nice to have a collective thread for all Mega Gargants made to share hints, tips, ideas and feedback.

 

So to get the ball rolling here is my Thieves Bazaar themed Gatebreaker General!

My Mega Gargants have a slightly, just slightly, different aspect to what you could expect from them. Still a wip, as I might add some more details to the body and base. 

These Colossi are what's left of the Agloraxi Empire after Khorne destroyed their great city. They managed to survive the impact and lay dormant for several millenniums until a Wise King found the Eternal Flame when he was being cornered by Hallowheart soldiers. He know believes to be in control of this gargantuan nightmares.

working on turning an old genie conversion I did from about four years ago into a right and proper mega gargant, lorewise he’s what happens when Nagash takes the remnant worship of a dead god and mixes it with a bisected gargant in order to steal that worship plus the energies responsible for the Sons of Behemat becoming so huge(just deciding between runnin him as a kraken eater or a gate breaker).

I have soo much time for this creation @Izotzuhure!

Great use of some un-captilized Age of Myth lore too.

 

Thanks, though @Grim Beasties should get the credit for the lore, as he was the one who pointed out to me the existence of the Colossi.

My original idea was going to be similar, but from an unknown origin. The Agloraxi Empire was perfect for the concept and I only had to change a few things. 

Now I just need to fix a few details before the second one is ready to be shown!

Really incredible ideas/conversions.

My Gargants still need some greenstuff, but I could take a few pics after work.

Edit: Here they are. There is still quite some work to be done, but my Chaos Gargants are coming along.

How I Paint - Frost Gargants (Airbrush)
I am  by no means the best painter but I had a few people asking how I did my Frost Gargants, so here’s a quick breakdown of how I work exposing any illusions of skill for the easy tricks that they are!

Happy Warhammer Day!

My project for the day is working on my “little and often” painting project my Frost Gargant, so far today I’ve done a bit of work on the jawbone necklace and his victim holding arm. Aiming to have both arms, the necklace and bird done today

Created by Nagash from the corpse of a Mancrusher and the remaining worship of The Brine God, Grog targets the idols of rival gods throughout Ghur, often followed by Nighthaunt Processions and the tribes of Destruction alike as he goes about his mission.

I'm loving converting my Bonegrinder while I wait for my mantic giants to arrive (boo hiss I know, but they're far better armatures to convert). I'm going with a very fairy-tale theme to the army, I was really inspired by the amazing promotional art GW did that never ended up in the book (why?!). First up is my cinderella themed Bonegrinder. I've got mice waiting to go on his base (from the HPA) as well as a tiny glass slipper to have dangling from his belt.
