Frost giant queen release to the general adoring public

Recommended Posts

Hi there, 

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.

 

Thanks!

Soon.   There was a proposed release schedule that came out last year, link to it here.  77576 Female Sphinx was the last one in the March release, and the Frost Giant Queen is #77592.

Hopefully then it's soon.  I'm trying to coordinate her coming out with ordering some paint (which I'm needing pretty soon), plus the Heritage figures, hoping for a groovy one when she does come out.

 

So I saw this beauty in the preview section, and there it said she was to come around April. So just biding my time, hoping early April instead of late, and Hoping for an xcellent Dungeon Dwellers figure at the same time!

So I got some paint and this beautiful frost Giantess, and the figure is really incredible.  I was surprised it came in so many parts, but Reaper has done a beautiful job in making sure the pieces fit nicely together.  Her staff was warped, and with much trepidation I attempted throwing it in boiling water and then later into icy water, but that worked actually really well!  So now the only thing left is to paint her which will I'm sure take quite a while. I actually want to paint some old Grenadier frost giants at the same time, and take advantage of the same skin tones.

      I have finally started working on my many Bones minis. This first one is 773000 Antipaladin by Bobby Jackson. It is mostly an experimental/ practice piece. I am not completely happy with my mold line removal, but in this case I am not going to worry about it too much. Mostly it is to get me acquainted with working with Bones minis and to experiment with my new Scale 75 metallic paints. I am not happy with all of the photos, my old photo setup got broken and I haven't gotten it replaced yet and just as I was taking these pictures one of my light bulbs went out and I don't have a replacement. Should be able to get better pics once I get a new bulb.
       
      First off I base coated the cape with Nightmare Black. This was a new paint purchase and I wanted to play with it. Really like this color.
      Next I used Faded black to Undercoat the skulls on the armor. I'm planning to do these in a metallic steel. Used Tanned skin as a base coat on his head.
      Next came Ultramarine Shadow for the armor undercoat. I really like this color for this as I am going to do the majority of the armor in a dark blue steel tone. The only down side is that the blue colors are fairly transparent and so take several coats to get good coverage.
       
      Looks like I am having some chipping issues, but I think I have that issue solved. Hope to get some more work done on him soon if life doesn't make me do other things first

      I love this figure.
      Not so much the bendy weapons, but I straightened them out.
      They have bent back a little (Sword).

      I did a WIP on him.  Thanks for the encouragement along the way.

      He is another for our Reign of Winter Adventure Path.  My DM said "Vikings."  Kord has that vibe for sure.
       

       
      I tried to paint the base like grass.
      The hardest part was the nmm on the axe, and trying to get the runes to show up on the sword.  It's a very irregular axe shape, so it was tough to figure out how to do it.
      My green stuff patch job on the wolf pelt was not the greatest, but it is decent enough camouflage.
      The second-hardest part of the figure to me was figuring out what parts of the pelt were what.  What is tail? What are legs?  I did my best.
      Overall, I'm pleased with him.  He seems like such a bad-a$$.
      As for the pics, iPhone seems to be good for far away, but really "blobby" for up close.  Maybe it is suffering from zoom.
      C&C Welcome.

      First up is Terezinya, Bonepander Wizard (Reaper 77173).  She had been sitting on my paint desk partially painted for so long that her base got dusty, oops.  She always gave me a pirate wibe, hence the plank base.




      Nienna, Female Elf Ranger (Reaper 77091) is another one that sat partially painted for a really long time.  All that green, how do I paint all her knickknacks in an interesting way without making her stand out in forest?  Finally just brute forced it to get her done.


       
      Trista, the White Wolf (Reaper 77094), she didn't languish as long as the other two, but like normal I got stuck on deciding on colors for all the details.  But with 3 off the desk of shame I can start on something new!

      In response to a local club challenge, I painted this dwarf in 3 colors chosen by a computer program.

      Golden Yelllow, Winter Blue and Leather Brown + B&W 
       
       
      edit, I do need to fix that eye...
