a general question, is there any idea when the Frost Giant queen from the last round of Bones Kickstarter is going to be released to the public? One of the coolest minis from that last Kickstarter.
By Geoff Davis
02599: Frorigh, Frost Giant Jason Wiebe P65 version
This is another one from my shelf of shame. He has been there since around 2011.
He ended up on the shelf of shame for several reasons. One was that I couldn't blend the greens to save my life. I still can't, actually, and I gave up. He is the P65 version so he also weighs a lot. I'm not sure exactly how much, probably more than a pound. Every time I picked him up I put him back down. I've had a couple of injuries over the last few years (broken wrist, compressed bone in my other arm) which made holding a heavy mini like this not fun.
I also had problems envisioning what he was supposed to look like finished. No inspiring vision, not fun to hold, progressively worse paint job, so he was abandoned.
However, I have now run out of relatively easy paint jobs on my shelf of shame and its time to face a tougher one. So I am committed to getting him done. No quitting allowed.
I went looking for inspiration and found this incredible rendition of Frorigh by @Pingo: Frorigh by Pingo
It reminded me of this day:
That's me. Standing on a hilltop just below the Arctic Circle on Baffin Island. At noon. In January 2000. It was about -30 C. So like an idiot I took off my glove for a macho pose. Lots of pink and blue in that picture, much like the lighting Pingo used on her rendition of Frorigh. It inspired me to make a spring rendition instead. in the spring the sun is still low on the horizon, but the light is intense, and it's relatively warm. As soon as the snow melts enough to expose the ground, the flowers start blooming. Behind the snow drifts and rocks, there are still long dark blue shadows.
So, I have decided to do my rendition of Frorigh with the light shining as though the sun is low on the horizon shining down directly on top of his helmet. I'm going to add a couple of extra snow banks. I'm also going to try to put some appropriate small flowers on the base between the shadows. Directional lighting effects from the low sun. SENMM on the shield boss and helmet. Okay, here we go.
Hello fellow miniature painters! This is my first attempt at painting a r̶e̶s̶i̶n̶ Bonesium miniature model.
My local miniature hobby shop was holding a painters' meet-up and the subject was anything humanoid or figurine.
I bought the Frost Giant King and got my paint scheme and inspiration from KingMob's painted Frost Giant King.
I think I did an okay-ish job, although no where as good as KingMob or other experienced painters here. Also the sword and spear are bent. Gonna try to straighten it by softening in boiling water and quenching in ice water.
I bought a couple more Reaper Minis and hope to complete them some time soon.
