Who knows how long it had been sitting there? It then sat more years in my basement. During my Epic re-basing project, I found it in the basement, put it together and painted it. So, better late than never, I guess.
Here is a pic of the model next to the larger, scarier "Great Gargant", which I acquired from Fawcett member Sean M. years ago. It gives a sense of the relative size - I think the Gargant fits into the line at about the same position as the Imperial Reaver Titan - scary, but not the scariest thing.
Now to stomp some humiez! Should make for a good dust-up with the Imperial Guard and a few Titans.
For fun, I checked the GW site for how much it would cost to acquire one today. Only $42 US for a Gargant! Needless to say, much better to find one in the basement.
While I was visiting the GW Web site, I thought I would check the other Epic 40k models, and was floored by just how much the Epic 40k stuff is starting to cost. The Gargant is a great deal compared to the criminal price of $23.75 US for TWO, count em', that's TWO, Wave Serpents. So putting your detachment of eight Eldar units into Wave Serpents for Epic 40k can be done for just about $50 US! What a GREAT DEAL.
It is actually cheaper to order the resin Epic models from Forge World!!
No wonder nobody plays Epic anymore...
