There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter

-Inquisitor Hesiod Gigas, “The Giant”,Ordo Hereticus, quoting primordial terran scribbler.

Inquisitorial retinue of Inquisitor Hesiod “Giant” Gigas. Also known as The Giant’s Fist. Heretic slayin’ rampaging band of hand picked members depicting their master’s traits. Fueled to insanity and inhuman feats by their volatile and violent master.

A brute, that’s what he is, they say. Tall as an astartes, strong like an ogryn. A giant. Extremely cunning, clever and utterly insane. Methods so unorthodox and suicidal it makes weaker men  shudder. And angry, always angry. Dangerous, but trustworthy and loyal for the Imperium and The Emperor of the Mankind. Comes in handy when one has to fight fire with fire.

What a learning experience this group has been. Re-learning the basics of painting, group coherency, light and shading is basicly what these fellas were for. Still lots of mistakes and untidiness here and there and some things that really don’t fit the big picture, but all in all I’m quite satisfied with the Giant’s Fist. In the next project I’m going to continue experimenting and learning new ways to create more real textures and colours.

  1. Looks really good.. How did you find converting the slaughterpriest? Im looking at doing one up myself but it does look like it could be hard to bring it into the realm of 40k. The shoulder pads go on the arms fine or are those completely new arms? Back bits easy enough to cut away for a backpack?

    1. Thank you. The basemodel for the inquisitor is actually the standard bearer with the humongous khorne symbol from the AoS starter box. As for this one though the hands were it’s own for example and I did only a quite a small amount of cutting down the parts.

  2. I love this group. Great, unusual color scheme. It’s a rare shade of green and I like rarity. The Inquisitor doesn’t read like one to me, but yet I think he clearly reads like a boss and the overall dynamic works great.

    1. Thank you. With the Inquisitor I tried to come up with a eccentric, straightforward militant, something between the powerarmored new GW versions and fanatical radical.

  3. Very cool group – I love the little details and unusual choices for some of the bits (lookin’ at you, scanner-faced cherub!), and that floating life support pod is brilliant. The Inquisitor steals the show – he is a beast! The green is unusual but very effective, and the yellow spot colour is inspired. Love it!

  4. Great work!! Love the poses. It’s a very dynamic and cool group.
    The neckpiece and the added cables on the center guy are my favourite detail.
    Such a cool techno-barbarian vibe!
    Hopefully the guys making the new necromunda goliath miniatures will take some notes from you:)

    1. Cheers! I always try to create the poses with help from the base materials to make even the strangest looking legs look fairly reasonable (the bald stunty operator for example). And learning from me, now you are making me blush! 🙂
