A different take on Mega-Gargants

Recommended Posts

Hi. 

A little foreword. So when the Sons of Behemat were released i was not really happy with GW view on their giant dudes. First of all I expected something bigger, there was "mega" in the title after all. Second - i am not really a fan of portraying a giant as just a big dumb bafoon, covered in heaps of trash. Third - the conversions that appaled to me were really extensive, almost completely reworking the model. So long story short - I decided to create my own Megagargant from scratch, using ofc the power of 3d modelling and printing. Scince i was a noob - I decided to go easy mode on my first try, i picked Nurgle) Dirt, rust, corruption, all that good stuff that can cover and hide many mistakes) 

 

So after a lot of work here is what i came up with.

And here is my dude in his final form. Little gobbo is for size comparison. He is 23 cm (9+ inches) tall, has proper armor and weapon. Still on a 130mm base. 

After i finished him i understood that i suck at painting nurgle and he looks too vivid and tzeentchy. The Changer of ways has a strong foothold in my painting habbits.

Love the colours, brighter and more vivid than typical AoS - reminds me of a video game! 🙂

I present you my new project - Giant Mega Throgg Fanatic. Towering 9 inches of craziness, colors and mushrooms. A powerful addition to any Gloomspitegitz army or collection. This dude is on a 130mm base and ofc he counts as a Mega Gargant)
It was a long project, but im really happy with the resulsts. Something like a week of modelling, whole week of adding supports in chitubox, 166 hours of printing and another week of painting. But damn, he looks cool)

The Model looks cool, yet it just looks like a normal Nurgle Warrior but scaled up. You need to add elements which symbolize the heaviness of the object (ragged hanging skin in thick folds and the likes). Adding trophies of to it - real-world big objects that seem tiny now  - (like GW did) also helps

keep up the good work!

 

Cheers

Edit: The Troll looks really cool!

Just stumbled about your fantastic artwork. The Three Skulled Head alone is awesome and quite nurglish:)

Was this intended? If so your are a great and inventive artist, this is just so great. Thanks for your post.
