The chronicle of one man’s return to collecting, converting, and painting miniatures

Proof of Concept
The Otherworld stone giant has at last felt the wrath of my razor-saw and bastard-file. It's a conversion project that's been lurking inside my head for quite some time. The fact that I elected to include this mini in my 2012 OW painting pledge forced the issue.
I love the sculpt (it was one of the first OW miniatures I ever bought) but always felt that the club, while true to the MM illustration, was undersized. I have therefore substituted a proper giant sized club from Reaper. This required a whole lot of filing to reposition the right arm as well as the removal of the thumb and fingertips. Obviously there's some sculpting in my future.
Equally obvious, given the pace at which I work, this may take a while to complete.
