As far as miniature games go, I generally tend towards sci-fi games. But this is a beautiful miniature. I would be happy to lose battles if it was this guy who was crushing my forces (okay, he couldn't be painted really badly, but just primed would be fine).

Privateer does some pretty good miniatures. Some of their War Machine characters make for some sweet Necro figs (with proper weapon swaps).

While I wouldn't give it a whole lot of style points on the face it is definitely really well sculpted. It's also a pretty original monster as far as I know (which isn't too far).

It's a four-armed elephant... yeah I'd say that's a pretty original monster.

Titan Gladiator

SPD STR MAT RAT DEF ARM
4 12 5 3 12 19

26 DAMAGE POINTS!!!

Weapons: 2x War Gauntlets (POW: 4, P+S: 16)

If a couple of these guy was your enemy, you'd be proud to be decimated by them.

Titan Cannoneer

SPD STR MAT RAT DEF ARM
4 11 5 4 12 18

26 DAMAGE POINTS!!!

Weapons: War Mace (POW: 4, P+S: 15), Siege Cannon (RNG: 12", ROF: 1, AOE: 3", POW 15)

This is the one with the cannon. It's not a total combat monster like it's gladiator counterpart, but it's still something you'd be proud to be destroyed by.
