1979 Ral Partha Hill Giant

 Painted up an old figure. I originally had him dug out of the pile and primed in a burst of enthusiasm after my test game of Dragon Rampant, but then reality kicked in. However the Frostgrave Campaign being played at the moment needs a Giant for the second battle - handily I had one ready to paint!

He's an old Tim Meier scuplt from 1979, Ral Partha's 01-052 Hill Giant (version 2). To be honest, beforehand I found his positioning a bit strange, but now he's painted up I like him. There's loads of great deep texturing on him which makes him fun to paint up. His club looks just ready to give a little "Tonk!" on the tops of some helmed noggins.

Frostgrave Campaign - #1 The Discovery

Part one of the "The Diabolist's Scheme" campaign published (for free) by Cigar Box Battle Games.

The first battle starts with a standard Frostgrave set up, but with two treasure markers replaced by mortally wounded captains.
