Giants are one of the types of monsters that I rarely use in my own game, but I happen to be playing in Storm King's Thunder, which is an entire module about giants. So yet again I find myself painting some monsters for my DM to use against me. This time it includes the Frost Giant King that I skipped out of Bones 3.
I primed them with Reaper's Liners, Red for the Fire Giant Jailer, Grey for the Frost Giant King, and Blue for the Storm Giant.
Much like the Sepia Liner, Red Liner doesn't seem to have the same adhesive quality as the Brown, Blue, and Grey Liners. Also, for some reason it smells really bad. However mostly it was the rubbing off issue that caused me to repaint it.
After priming them over the weekend, I sat down tonight and spent about 2 hours getting as much done as I could, hoping to have them table ready for Wednesday. I've got another 2 hours or so tomorrow that I'll get to spend on them, so here's hoping...
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!
