By this time, I had figured out that I was going to do some giant rat ogres for Dogs of War giants. At first, I didn't know whether to try to keep them more in scale with the other rat ogres, but why limit myself? I had some bitz from one of the Giants of Albion - painted, as you can see - I was too lazy to strip it, figuring that it will mostly get sculpted over. To get a decent pose to the legs, I had to completely resculpt the hips. To get the broader shoulders and narrow waist of the rat ogres, I'll completely resculpt the torso, and probably make it mostly hairy so as not to resemble the giant from whence it came.
