Minifigs ME39 Giant - 1973 or 1974? Oldhammer eat your heart out...


Well, I seem to have caught an old school bug again following on from my last post of the ME Goblins... this is my first attempt at tartan and will possibly be my last... I've tried to make him look slightly more 'menacing' than the sculpt appears...



Most of Minifigs fantasy lines are on the Lost Minis WIKI here and, of course, Dave at Caliver Books is doing his best to bring them back to life;


(scroll down the left hand side until you come to 'Classic Fantasy & Sci-Fi Ranges'... unfortunately a direct link doesn't work for some reason.

Many thanks to the Figure Mentors site for the tartan tutorial... well worth a visit;

Good to see I am not the only one badgering Dave to get the rest of the molds found!

Terrific tartan, gives him a whole new vibe.

Very nice. It looks realistic, which is not always the case with painted fantasy figures! Like it.

Fantastic tartan!

I think he looks a friendly sort of giant, but there's nothing wrong with that!

Wish I could paint tartan like that! Nice work.

Splendid looking tartan! Something I generally run screaming away from! Your goblins are ace too!
