Under the favorable twin stars Vilkas Pyktis and Vilkas Kerštas (Wolf's Anger and Wolf's Revenge), Ghetorix radiates the raw power of the Warpwolves.  Death is his profession, his passion and his joy.
Brute strength is fine but raw magic power is a bonus Ghetorix also enjoys.
Only fools face him without fear, and he so enjoys the flesh of fools!
                                         A sight no living enemy has ever seen.
The true size and power of Ghetorix is demonstrated in the second before he dispatches the foolish Menoth grenadier.
Ghetorix is a plastic (body) and metal (head, arms and axe) piece from the Circle of Oboros line of Privateer Press.

The Mail Will Be Delivered!

Moist von Lipwig, Postmaster of Ankh Morpork dawns the uniform of his men to deliver the mail-no matter what the difficulties.
One of the difficulties is that there is a thirty year plus backlog of mail to deliver.  Perhaps the winged shoes and hat will help.
In the story "Going Postal" Moist has a golden suit, but this outfit was to distressed for my taste so I put him in a common postal uniform.  He is a "large" 30mm metal piece from Micro Art Studio's Discworld series.

Big Sword-Massive Muscles-Pea Brain

Grogmax the "Bear" feared for his strength, and short temper is everything one expects a barbarian to be-powerful, glory mad, and not to bright.  Being a barbarian is perfect work for him-smash, slash and stick the pointy part into anything in your way are simple rules for his simple mind.
