  1. No fancy photos currently of these guys. The quilting on their bracers and belts I decided to paint like dragon scales since giants and dragons have such a long-standing hatred for one another, at least in D&D lore. I love these bigger sculpts!
  2. Although there was a tragic sealant malfunction, I managed to save the first set of minis I've completed in some time using some tips and tricks...and having a better can of sealant available to fix the foggies. Since I am still running Storm King's Thunder, I thought the first minis from the Kickstarter I would paint should be the Giants of Bones 3. First, we have the whole lot, with Sir Forscale striking a pose. Then, we'll just get frosty: The King: The Queen (clearly the one in charge) A Frost Giant standing guard: A more eager Giant: Then, we heat things up with the Fire Giants! The King says, "That knight went that way!" A Warrior pursues. I removed the spiked ball and chain from his belt...I wasn't a big fan of that look. I left the bases as a decoration. Another Fire Giant guard stands by, in case Forscale returns. The Jailor stands by, awaiting the Knight's return in chains. You may notice the Fire Giant Queen is missing...I thought she was too similar to the original, and wanted to convert her to a more active pose, since Bones are so much easier to cut. She's been set aside for now. Overall, I think the recovery process from the sealer foggies went well. Looking at the photos, the process de-flocked their bases more than anything, which I'll fix. Eventually.
  3. Bones 3 had a bit of an unfortunate arrival time for me, coming in the middle of an unplanned move. It may have taken me a bit, but I'm finally getting started on some of the pieces! I even took them with me for some down time on our yearly beach vacation, though my set-up here is not very scenic: That was last week, and now they're a bit closer to completion, with some details and fixes, basing, and sealing to be done. Some Bones 3 furniture snuck in as well:
  4. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/674003445/chibi-giants-and-swarms-fantasy-rpg-miniatures/description New giant, old giants from the first chibi KS re-sized to 40mm (some thought the originals were too big to be bosses in a number of games like SDE/Arcadia Quest etc) and a Trojan Pony
  5. Funded

    I saw that Stonehaven just launched another kickstarter! Stonehaven's Giants Huge Humanoids and Creatures for your adventurers to encounter and to bulk out your RPG dungeon or tabletop wargame armies!
  6. Yet another of my impulse buys from Reaper Miniatures, I recently finished Reaper's "Jack and the Beanstalk" boxed set, plus a duo of back-up for our beleaguered Giant. They'll certainly be useful in "Storm King's Thunder", so I may actually have a purpose for this! Be nimble, young Jack! What's this you run from? A nest? Perhaps they're gold on the inside (this way they're useful for a few more scenarios) Ah, that's how you got up this high: What's that coming after you? The sound of thunder... Close up, our pursuer reminds me of Trevor Philips of GTA V: Ah, Cyclopean back-up from the West Winds, borrowing a spare head from our first Giant: Another cold-blooded comrade joins our Giants in the chase for young Jack: The young Jack seems woefully outnumbered and outsized: Ah, but to the rescue comes Sir Forscale, demonstrating that bigness is no match against scale shots:
  7. Boring day. Wife working. Kids doing kid stuff. So let's paint some giants. They are just friends. They are both painted in "human" colors so I can use them as any type of giant. This is the storm giant and cloud giants from bones kickstarter... They are on 80mm bases from wrath if kings. The male had a sword swap (from wrath of kings) as his sword was hopelessly bent.
  8. Adding to the eternal march of the Giants, my first completed pieces from the "Blood Rage" Kickstarter are the big guys. First we have the Frost Giant: A rather bestial Fire Giant, who apparently got the short end of the sealant on his crown...to be fixed, as I only noticed now: The Mountain Giant (my personal favorite and one of the reasons I had to back it, as a Kickstarter exclusive) The slightly less giant Troll: And some group shots: And one with Sir Forscale, for scale:
  9. Trying to expand the bestiary for "Frostgrave". The Frost Trolls (Yetis) are former Shaggy Man from HeroClix, the apes are also former clix, and the Frost Giant is a Pathfinder Frost Giant converted to a heavy infantry type...not specifically for Frostgrave but fit the theme. First paints are applied, and Lars the Linkboy is there for scale.
  10. I was lining up my larger humanoids in a row and made an observation, relating to the new larger giants coming out (in Bones 3), mass, and CR (using 3.x D&D/Pathfinder rules). So I thought I'd share my thoughts. :) It seems that for basic humanoids (without regeneration or other fancy rules that boost up their CR beyond their base mass) there's generally a fairly even progression. Which is there's a +1 to CR for every 5mm of mini height (1ft in game) beyond the base 28mm (5'7") mini size. Based off CR added to any class levels. +0 CR ≈ 30mm (6ft.) Standard size for human mini +1 CR ≈ 35mm (7ft.) "Advanced" template Orc Boss (77064). +2 CR ≈ 40mm (8ft.) Bugbears (77015). +3 CR ≈ 45mm (9ft.) Ogres (77105). I'm assuming the Bones 3 Ogres will be about the same size. +5 CR ≈ 55mm (11ft.) Giant-kin (Bones 1 Fire/Frost Giants). +7 CR ≈ 65mm (13 ft.) Hill Giants (77313). +8 CR ≈ 70mm (14 ft.) Stone Giants (77336). Ya they're a bit lightly built but it roughly works. +9 CR ≈ 75mm (15 ft.) Frost Giants (Bones 3). This seems to be about how tall they'll be. +10 CR ≈ 75mm* (15 ft.) Fire Giants (Bones 3). *As they're so wide they're a bit shorter they otherwise would be. So what do you think? If there's any merit to my line of thinking I hope we see some 85mm Cloud Giants (CR 11) and 95mm Storm Giants (CR 13) some time in the future. Bones 4?
  11. I've finished storm giat about half of a year ago, but shot it only today The cloud female was one of latest finished works
  12. Two nights in so far, from bare unwashed Bones to some base earth colors and inks on some of our barbaric friends; Giants, Bugbears, and Minotaurs (oh my!)
  13. After seeing some of the preview art for Pathfinder's upcoming "Giantslayer" adventure path, I wanted to work on some non-standard Giants. I already had 02933: Talanka, Ogre Shaman, who was repainted alongside [/size]60027: Dorella Kreeg, Ogre Shaman, who was a lucky find on another expedition over to border to North Carolina.[/size] I really liked the Dorella sculpt in person, her proportions work well to be an Ogre Shaman or a wizened old Hill Giant hag.[/size]
  14. This was in the "Bones We'd Like to See" thread. I didn't want to derail, so here's a new thread. How have giants changed over the years in D&D and other games? Why were they changed? Do the changes make certain minis obsolete, assuming one is strict about base size and scale? Inquiring minds want to know.
  15. I thought I'd start a thread of the recent miniatures work I've done. Here's the most recent, my attempts at Kostchtchie the Deathless (the D&D/Pathfinder Demon Lord version, not the Russian mythical figure)
