Real nice work!!

 

If I may, I think both the NMM and the oSL lack one key thing... white!! The purest NMM reflections and the brightest portion of the OSL (the hammer head) must read to our eyes as the brightest areas of the mini. As they stand, the are equally bright as for example, the face highlights and the arm bracers. As a result, the NMM looks a bit stonish and the OSL look dull.

 

The placement is great and that is the hardest part IMHO, perhaps some fading on the orange and a higher chroma for the OSL would be my preference... but I would encourage you to add white hotspots on the NMM and blend the lower face of the hammerhead to white and see how much powerful the effect looks.

      A players new paladin mini as he has become quite a bit more pious lately.  Messed up the blood on the shield a little but overall I am very happy it's it

      I don't use huge Fire Giants in Pathfinder, but I ordered this guy with the intention of converting him into a demon or devil. At Origins this year, Reaper was selling blisters of bits, and one set was a bunch of wings, which included the wings from Bones 2's Orcus stand in (77316), so I slapped those on there, along with the forms from 77315 Fire Demon. I got a bit of a Green Goblin (from Ultimate Spider-Man) vibe, so I used purple as an accent color and made his hammer sort of fire-heated. The base includes some sculpted clay to round out the base.

      Off to the second giant, I am going with a different gold this time.  I really like the color of reapers NMM gold but I had problems with coverage so it went to the back of the line.  This one will use a gold base from scale 75 but shaded with reapers NMM gold shadow and hopefully it will work and avoid a bath in simple green

      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.

      Still working on my marthrangul diorama but got sidetracked by the jailor.  Wanted to give him a molten hammer so here he is so far.
