Lidless Eye Hobbies: Stonehaven Giants

Recommended Posts

Fi fie fo fum!  

Just in time for my "Storm King's Thunder" campaign to be long over, here come the Giants from Stonehaven Miniatures!

The Hill Giant Rustler:

Smile on, smilodon!

The Giant Barbarian.  I believe the intent was as a Hill Giant, but I have a ton of those.  His warpaint is  based on runes from "Storm King's Thunder"5a159172dfaa0_giantsm.thumb.jpg.88f1c1bb2dad3f3e47e8845581ba9745.jpg5a159173d0b9e_giantsn.thumb.jpg.01bbf5aa07f50be93cc502c5945dedf8.jpg

 

The Cloud Giant:

The Storm Giant.  He's a great design, but he's rather small compared to the other Giants.  It was a debate on what color of Dragon to use for his armor:

The Fire Giant, who was probably my favorite to paint.  She's a nice, simple design but gets the point across.

The Treant:

The only small miniature that I painted so far, but still from the Stonehaven Giants Kickstarter so it counts: The Entling!

So happy to see these painted, especially after waiting to receive them for such a long time! I really like all your paint schemes, especially the cloud giant!

 

With the Storm Giant, I'm not sure if it's odd that he's so small or if it's just the fact that all the other giants are just as large as he is.  Back in the old D&D days, they started out in size with a Hill Giant and worked their way upward until the Storm Giant was the mac daddy of them all, but in Stonehaven's case, they use a pretty consistent size for most of his giants.   Having said that, I really like the size, makes them a bit easier to paint. 

 

I want to start painting my Stonehaven giants, but I have such a cosmic backload of Grenadier giants, I almost feel I should paint those first!

those giants look wonderful. 

Wished I had funds available at the time. 

Hill giant, loud giant and sleeping giant are my favs.  fun sculpts, and well painted. 

 

I have painted 3 minis from the stonehaven halfling set.   I should get them back on my short list of painting projects

With the store and other changes, Stonehaven's post-Kickstarter prices had jumped massively.   I was shocked when I looked at picking up some doubles for friends.  I understand the whole "funds available" thing.

I love their Halflings!  The adventurer format was so great...you'd get a whole party plus a whole villages worth of one race.  Great way to build a collection.  I wonder if they'll be able to return to it.

I think they are going to be doing another Kickstarter soon.  Out on Instagram he's been showing a few new minis. Can't wait to see what's next! I saw their prices too go up by a large amount. Kind of put a damper on me buying some hobbitses off their site unfortunately.

Those Owlfolk are pretty amazing.  And I have a mighty need for that Undead Grippli.

      These mini's are sooooo tiny! AND adorable!! 
       
      I did have some trouble really picking out details on the Fairy and the one I am referring to as "Ragdoll". The soft edges were a little confusing at first and the way the Fairy's body is positioned, it was hard to tell what was leg or clothing! lol But I looked on google to get some reference from others that had already tackled these. That was super helpful! 
      After that I had painted these 3 up and set em aside for a while and worked on other things, not really sure what I wanted to do with them.

      Then a couple weeks ago I went on a Youtube binge watching soooo mannny videos about basing and came up with some cool ideas! (Stay tuned for more on that!) 
      While cleaning up my bulletin board, a pushpin broke. The metal part, right off. I almost tossed it out, but I have a problem holding onto anything that might be useful later lol. But then I immediately imagined it as a spool of thread. *sketch idea, hold for later* Then I just had to figure out what mini to use and my husband suggested the ragdoll, I mean she is stitched together so ya! 
       
      Then I did the Treant, those yellow bits on his base are foraged pieces of the invasive plant Virginia Creeper. We have some growing on our shed and as I was clearing it away I noticed how cool the little feets from their vines they use to climb look, so I snipped a ton of em, dried em out and hold onto them for neat terrain. These ones I chose to paint this yellow tone to accent the tree, without taking away or distracting from it! 
       
      Lastly, was the fairy, I just felt her jamming out on top of a little pile of rocks would be cute lol. So I used cork as stone and little bits of clump foliage and some other cork stone and flock to decorate.
       
      Thanks for looking everyone! C&C always welcome!

      My most recently complete project is the lovely ladies of Oathsworn Miniature's "Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3" Kickstarter.

      As always, they are a joy to paint.  They have nice, bold details but without being overwrought.  They definitely look like a bunch of starting adventurers!  The theme this time was more exotic races, notably a bunch from "Volo's Guide to Monsters"

      The ladies ascend the mountain:


       

      The Kitsune.  She could be a lightly armored Fighter, a Rogue, or a Ranger.
       

       
       
      The Kenku (or Tengu) Shaman.  Or Wizard.  Or Sorcerer.  Or whatever.  She's got a bone to pick with you!
       

       
      The Kenku or Tengu Rogue.  I went with oranges for them to continue my previous work on the Bones Tengu...which were also dressed in orange to match the official D&D pre-paints.
       

       
       
      The Dragonborn, could be a Fighter or Paladin.  The decision to make her red was regrettable...with that pointy face and dreads, I kept thinking of Ugandan Warrior Knuckles.  Stupid memes getting in the way!


       
       
      Tabaxi or Catfolk.  I tried to go with more of a Ranger color scheme than the intended Rogue.


       
       
      The other Tabaxi/Catfolk from the set.  I liked the intent of this sculpt...she could be a spellcaster, a Monk, or a Bard!


       
       
      The Halfling Knight.  


       
       

       
      Her mount was painted after my own painting gremlin, Hershey.  He would be much smaller to scale, though.
       

       

      The Tiefling Paladin.  I really like the pose of this one, though I questioned the hooves, as 4E and 5E Tieflings of this design have human feet.  I may wind up greenstuffing her into boots at some point.


       
       
      The Firbolg Druid.  As far as I know, this is the only miniature of a 5E style Firbolg.


       
       
      The Minotaur Swashbuckler.  I bet you were expecting a cow joke here.


       
       
      The terrain:

      I recently got in the latest "Heroines in Sensible Shoes" Kickstarter from Oathsworn Miniatures.  I decided to get started on them and take (yet another) break from my in progress Rising Sun minis.


       
      As \always, they were nice, clean casts with lots of detail, but nothing over-wrought...which makes sense for low-level adventurers!  They're such a joy to paint.

      A tribe of Ogres from Reaper Miniatures. I was originally just going to get the Matriarch, having previously traded away the other Ogres from the Kickstarter core set, thinking I had enough from my former Ogre Kingdoms army for Warhammer.  Seeing them all together in person changed my mind!

      Sadly, my not-so-local shop was out of the Smasher.  I'll have to add him in later!
       
      The Matriarch.  I'm tempted to get another and convert her to look more like a fighter.  I was tempted to slice down the Goblin servant's ears and paint him as a baby Ogre on a leash.


       

      The Chieftain.  I love his door-shield!


       
       
      The Clubber (not to be confused with the Ogre Raver)


       
      The Guard.

      A quick paintjob on one of the D&D Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures line, the Umber Hulk!  My somewhat local gaming store finally had them back in stock...still no luck on the elusive Beholder!
