One of my favorites is the giant... well at least from the waist up, his legs are cartoonishly small and about half way through painting him I decided they just wouldn't do and snipped each leg under the knee and added about a half stilt. And there he languished for the last four years until now.
During my recent Half-Orc painting sessions I forced myself to nip away at him and finally got him finished up at least to table top standards.
I quite like him. Although he's not technically from the "Golden" era of miniatures there is something of an oldschool feel about him in a Ral Partha sorta way.
And here he sat, shimmed and ready to go for the past four years and two house moves always managing to end up back on the hobby table.
