Mailman just dropped off the figure! Does this mean the rest of the game should arrive shortly?

He's pretty cool looking, too. We aren't opening it until we have the game...

I wanna play!

I got mine today also. I ordered directly from DOW. I think I'm going to take him out for a few beers and watch the Seahawks (hopefully) stomp the Raiders.

I hope the smile means you are joking, cause even I know its not going to be the same game, and I'm not interested in it at all.

Mine arrived in the mail today, too, from DOW. Nice. But like the guy said to Snake Plisken in Escape From LA, I expected him to be taller.
But the quality is very nice, and a bit of warm water will straighten out his bent hammer. Yes, he is made of the same slightly soft plastic as Memoir pieces.

Now escuse me... I have to post the Giant on EBAY and sell it for 50 bucks!!!

[size=7]Just joking.[/size]

My wife just pre-ordered BattleLore for me for Christmas -- but she used Thought Hammer for the discount. I wasn't interested in using a Hill Giant in my games anyway. But a nice dragon would definitely work nicely.

And by the way, how big is the giant? I'm hoping to be able to use my old Warhammer figures for the game if the scale is close.

My Hill Giant was smoking a stogie in my office when I arrived at work today. I tried to talk with him, but he started heaving boulders at me, screaming, "REBORT DUE MONEDAY! REBORT DUE MONEDAY!"

I fled.

From the bottom of the base to the top of the Giants head he is 1 3/4 inch tall. Or 1.75 inches. No metrics, sorry. Hope that helps.

I hope that one of you'se guys that sprung for the Hill Giant will post a scan of his "special tiles" and rules for play so that those of us who plan on substituting an appropriate GW mini can grab that here on the Geek. (pleeeeze?)

Both the Giant's Lair and it's stats are available on the BattleLore site - if not in the blog then in the forums.

That paint job is far better than anything I am even going to attempt! I have other plans to personalize my Battlelore figures...

...I am going to dress them all up in tiny ballerina costumes!

I wonder when the hill giant will arrive with other pre-orders? (With the game, hopefully?)
Regards,
Mike.

Next week I'm going to work on a scenario for Memoir 44: The Hill Giant That Ate Sheboygan. Anyone interested in sharing ideas?

Sheboygan... I don't recall that battle in World War II. Can you refresh my memory? Was it close to the Libyan village of Heshebe?

We who live in Michigan know that it's not "Sheboygan," it's "Cheboygan."

But for the Memoir '44 game, have the hill giant face off against the SS Doomtrooper from the awful SciFi Channel movie out a few months ago, that would be one for the ages (ages of six and under or over 90, that is).
