I've been working on the Bones Storm Giant for weeks and I finally finished.
To celebrate, I paint some random stuff.
Painted in the style of the 5e storm giant.
As part of the original Bombshell Babes Kickstarter, this Eye Slug was part of the Sidekicks line.
For an upcoming D&D game, I painted this Bones Frog Demon as a Red Slaad.
A player needed a Lawyer/Bard PC mini so I used this Varian Jeggare 2010 Gencon exclusive mini.
And, just for the fun of it, here is one of the Reaper Geeks minis painted as Bryan Stiltz.

I actually finished this guy a few weeks back, but I didn't have a good set up to take photos of larger miniatures. Then, I realized the recently arrived game mat from Ganesha Games "Axe and Brimstone" Kickstarter would make a great backdrop for the larger pieces.
So, here's the Storm Giant Royal Guard from Gale Force 9's "Dungeon & Dragon Collector's Series".
Feel the thunder, friends.

This past week I painted the Male Storm Giant figure from the Bones 1 Kickstarter Storm Giants set. This finishes this set for me; and, more importantly, this finishes my Bones 1 Kickstarter paint-and-post project! I've now painted every single figure I received from the Bones 1 Kickstarter and posted a painting article about it on my All Bones About It blog.
I have to say it's been an amazing journey along the way. I've had the chance to experiment with a lot of techniques, and learn a bunch of new things. Starting the blog led me here to the Reaper forums where I've met a lot of cool folks. And I've also enjoyed getting to know my readers over on the blog.
I painted this big fella in the same color scheme I used for his queen, Yephima, who I posted a couple weeks ago.
I attempted to paint his shoulder armor as if it had lightning radiating from the face, to go with the Storm Giant theme. I also added a small nail-art gem to the hilt of his sword.
Here are the king and queen together.

Over the weekend I finished up Yephima, Female Cloud Giant, from the Bones 1 Kickstarter Storm Giants set. So, she is listed in the Reaper online store as a Cloud Giant, but in the Kickstarter she was part of the Storm Giant set; so I debated which direction to go with her, and decided to go with the Storm Giant look. Next, I looked up the description of Storm Giants in my old D & D Monster Manual, and found out they can have violet skin and can have blue-black hair. Sounded like a nice painting challenge to me!
Well, the purple skin and silver-grey eyes take some getting use to, but otherwise I'm quite happy how she turned out. :)
Just two figures left to paint in my Bones 1 Kickstarter Paint and Post blogging challenge!

So looking around the forums and I found the Year of the Giant painting contest. Since I was in an inspired painting mood I decided to break out Yephima and the male storm giant. I went and looked at alot of the other submitted giants in show-off, WIP, and Inspiration gallery. I was really inspired by Pragma's Storm Giant, especially the lava cracks on the shoulder. I decided to try and go the literal 'storm' giant route and went looking at photos of lighting strikes. I saw lots of blues, reds, purples, and whites, then I saw this one,
I love the blue/green-teal highlighting the greys of the clouds and the ice-blue highlight of the actual lighting. Hopefully the final result will look similar. Comments and suggestions are welcome.
Current state of the models
Since I wanted the blue tint and I've been really happy with Buglips' brown liner discovery I went with Reaper's blue liner to base my bones.
A technique that I've been playing with but not really focusing on has been to dilute the paint to almost a glaze to allow more of the undertones to show through. I figure that this color scheme would benefit the most from this to really try and get the blending and depth that I'm looking for. First up, the base of Deep Ocean.
The first of the glaze attempts. Armour Grey.
