Hi guys, here's the Splintered Light Mountain Giant finished, I added the shields on the arm and thigh and the unfortunate halfling hanging from the belt, theres a couple of mold lines I didn't do enough work on, not a bad figure, and he is massive in 15mm, photos are a bit dark, its pretty overcast in Sydney today, now off to work on some 15mm Mordheim style war bands.

Hi guys, I have been procrastinating over the last few days about how I will tackle my 15mm Darth Vader, I want him to be a great figure, so it was a god send when my Splintered light package arrived to distract me, part of the package was a Mountain giant (number 2) (pictured with a Copplestone 15mm barbarian), this figure is awesome, he is 66mm to the top of the head, the detail is very nice (these pics don't do it justice) he will make a nice distraction from Vader for a while, the only fault is a flat spot on the left knee (see pic 5) this seems to be a casting flaw as the pic on SL website has detail here (I might just fill in the detail with green stuff, but I will email SL so they know there is an issue) I also ordered some halflings and armored Fauns (no casting issues here) this was a test order to see what SL products are like, and I will happily order through them again, so this will be the start of a new 15mm fantasy skirmish project, casting issue aside I will give this figure a 8/10 he loses a point because I would have liked to see more detail putting him into scale with 15mm e.g. shields used as armor plates, a deer or halfing hanging from his belt etc, he loses another point for his pose, his stance makes him look skinny from the front and gives him a little flatness (2Dness).

Hi guys, the Stormtrooper platoon finished, 3, 8 man sections (support weapons to come) not sure if I will put grass on the bases or go for a desert look, I'm pretty happy with how they turned out, might sculpt Darth Vader next.
