Future Project - The Giant Crocodilian

I always like the section in Toys R Us with the Schleich animals and Papo knights/dragons/random creatures - this is one that I always considered picking up whilst perusing them - a Papo Crocodile Mutant - but it always seemed just a bit too pricey compared to what I could buy from the Reaper Bones range for the same sort of price. I decided to search for it on eBay a few months ago and found one going for less than a fiver including post! So obviously he got added to the mountain... He'll make a brilliant giant for use with my Fantasy Skirmish stuff - that's a 28mm Gripping Beast miniature with him for scale!  Thinking about it, he almost looks like a Hordes Skorne creature with that armour and paintjob!


Comments and suggestions for paint scheme and weapons are most welcome - thank you for reading!

  1. I'd confine myself to painting the shield emblem and doing a sweet base. I know nothing about it, but Osprey has a rule set for Gods and warband fighting (Of gods and mortals), this strikes me as a potentially appropriate fig for said game.

    1. The paintjob is really good - I'm not sure on the red, so I'll likely repaint that (he looks a bit too Hordes Skorne army at the moment!) - I did have something like OGaM in mind for him!

  2. That looks amazing and already painted, what's not to like?

    1. Hah! It's really well sculpted and the paint is good - I'd still like to give him new weapons though!
