Thank you, ograx!  Yes, it is an odd group to play the traditional Wizard of Oz roles!  ::):

Nice detail - Dorthy is my favorite of the bunch.  Do you prime your minis? If so, which color do you use?

 

 

Thanks, Liverpuncher!  

 

No, I  didn't prime any of these guys.  While I usually use Reaper's grey or brown liner as first coat on the regular white Bones to help see the detail;  because these guys were cast in the grey Bones I found I could see the details just fine without doing that liner coat.    Please check out my Bones painting blog if you want to see what techniques and colors I used on any of these figures: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/

Thanks,  NecroMancer!   It certainly was the most unusual figure in the group!

      I saw a tweet in Japanese which says soaking Bones in benzine for about 2 days (more precisely, 44 hours, he says) removed plasticizer and bones are hardened. Did somebody tried this before? Any successful experience? Or experienced some problem?

      The Series continues with the merriest mini of the lot, the Bones 3 Fire Giant Jailor, joining the Joten Horde of Thrym!
       
      Now, after sitting on my desk since pulling him from his plastic bag and dry fitting him together, I've been considering what to do with him.
       
      The first thing was the weird shaped integral base ... that needed to be fixed.  So I dug around for a base to place his base on and settled for one of the large rounds from the same Bones kickstarter.  Now, how best to expand upon the stone work of the integral base or was I going to have to dump it altogether and just use the giant.
       
      Well,  I decided that I liked it a lot but the strange shape was a pain so I cut back the piece to the straight edges along one side.  Then using some architectural samples I have a ton of, I proceeded to make new tiles and intentionally break them.    They are 1/8" thick (3.2mm) and 2" x 2" in size.  After cutting them into squares, breaking them into bits is easy.
       

       
      The rest was just a matter of doing tile work and gluing them in place.  I grouted the piece with some Loctite Craft Glue.  It's heavy duty and fills in nicely ... see below.
       

       
      After a little sanding to remove the excess glue and roughing the edges, I used a hobby blade and carving tool to clean and define some of the lines in the integral base to better match the new tiles.  I also flipped one of the cut away segments from the front for the edge on the left side of the piece (near the top of the pic).
       
      Once that was dried and cleaned, I cleaned and glued the giant together and added him to the base.
       

       
      I have to do a  little filling of gaps and I did glue the chain down to the tiles so it lays across the ground as if it is landing there.  I just have to improve the pin for the dagger on his back belt and settle the keg on the hook off his belt.  Then I can coat and prime him and begin his paint job.
       
      I'll stick to my Fire Giant Skin Triad ...

       
      As used with the Dungeons & Dragons Fire Giant I did last year.
       

       
      Of course, the Jailor of the Fire Giants won't be nearly as pristine as one of their Elite Guards, so you can expect a lot of grunge and prolly some soot.
       
      As always, Enjoy and Stay Tuned.

      Beard did not come out very good on Camera.  Otherwise I think he turned out pretty good.

      Not sure of the name on this one but he turned out pretty good.  I did the eyes on this one but because of the hood the camera I was using could pick it up and the flash washed everything out.
