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 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 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.

      Yet another design by Duncan Shadow, the God That Never Was, the Atropal!

      Probably my favorite critter that was added during the 3.X era (not counting Pathfinder since they've added everything from obscure local mythics to cryptids to memes over the years)

      Another completed 3D print, again designed by Duncan Shadow.

      This guy had a bit of a restoration.  The printer knocked his head off overnight in a 20 hour print, so I attempted my first partial print and printed only from that point up and glued him together.  The gap is more obvious on his back.  I used model car filler, but I think my tube was a bit too old.
       


       
       
      And one with Sir Forscale:

      Another 3D print complete, this one was designed by Duncan Shadow.  I scaled it up a bit for the print, the STL name was "Bloat Hag" but I thought she'd make a good, monstrously sized Annis Hag.

      After sitting on this guy for 14 years (ugh) I finally finished him up when I realized he'd be perfect for my Trollkin Paladin for an upcoming "Midgard" game.

      Reaper's "Reaper of War"

      At least once a year, I like to convert up a Hired Sword in sacrifice to the eventual resurrection of Mordheim.

      This guy was an Age of Sigmar Bloodreaver in his previous life.
