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 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.

Nicely done on all of them! And so quick. I struggle with finishing a 15mm figure in a couple weeks.

That's a great bunch of giants. I like the frost giants a lot more that I thought I would during the campaign. The Inuit style are still my favorite but these look terrific all painted up. I especially like how you painted up the horns.

Honestly, these days, most of my technique is aimed at finishing pieces in bulk, rather than detail.  I want to get them game ready rather than sit unused in a bin for years.  Not like I don't have plenty of miniatures of that latter description, though!

Thanks!  It's Reaper's "Graveyard Bone" with a Citadel "Gryphon Sepia" wash over it.

Great work on them! I'm glad you were able to recover from the sealer malfunction.

8 giants? I aim for 6 figures a month, and giants count as two.  (at lest the hippo king did.) 

The frost giants look especially nice, except the queen.  

she could us a little more work- the front of her dress is off somehow and slightly blotchy skin, which sticks out since so much of it is exposed.

Yeah, the dress discoloration is from the sealant...left a bit of fog.  Fixing it stripped a bit off of her.  I'm not sure if that's the reason for the blotchy skin, I may need to touch that up directly between projects.
