The Cyclopes and the Hekatonchieres

The Cyclopes and the Hekatonwhatnows?

These are two of my favorite designs from Zeus: Father of the Gods. The Cyclopes you probably all know, but history has largely forgotten their monstrous brothers, the much harder to pronounce Hekatonchieres, which means, incidentally "the hundred-handed ones". In addition to the aforementioned 100 hands, each Hekatonchiere (there were 3) had 50 heads, so, while I was really happy with the solutions I came up with in designing them, I really didn't feel the need to put them into too many scenes.
