Whoa, they look much nicer in front of the black background. I really like the dark fur on the male. It goes well with his pale skin. The female seems to have more blue color to her skin when posed against the dark background. Looks lovely.

Yeah, I'm glad I was able to take normal pictures of these two, and not just iPhone photos that I'd been using recently. Soon or later they will be finished and I'll "normal" finished pictures of thema ll.

Really awesome work so far!  The giantess is definitely my favorite of the two so far... I think the facial expression, eyes, and lips just come together so well.

I'm trying to keep them both for the most part with cool colors and I kind of like the blue-white skin and hair combination. I know that in the Monster Manual of yore, it talked about blonde hair for these guys, but that never seemed to make a lot of sense to me.

So she’s pretty much done paintwise. Need to seal her and get her based. Still a ways to go on her gentleman companion.

 I recently reacquired these two... One of my favorite old-school box sets*. I had them both painted way back in the day, but my new copies are currently in the "Someday" pile.

 

 

 

 

 

*(The female is still available from Mirliton, although the picture doesn't show the antlers so I don't know if they're still part of the figure.)

I've got most of these Grenadier giants, from the days of yore when I was buying stuff on EBay.

 

There are two different version (at least) of this frost giant damsel.  The second one came without the antlers, and I think it's when she was sold in a blister pack without her bearded buddy.

      So an EDIT:  I changed up the photos and added one more different view because I took them from a slightly lower angle
       
      So it looks like Frost Giants are all the rage these days on the forums, so I'll add one more, eventually two.  I have been watching Patrick Keith's frost giant queen ever since she came out on the Bones Kickstarter and got her not too long ago, but didn't feel that I could actually start on her until I got some of my older frost giant pieces out of the way. The first two on the docket are John Dennett's classic Frost Giants from the Grenadier's Giant's Club, where each giant set came with the piece of a map and an obelisk. I'm not sure if after collecting all these you were able to send them in for something?
       
      Anyhoos, here is the female frost giant, one of my all time favorite figures. I'm working still on the male frost giant who is a little more labor intensive, but I'll get him finished one of these days hopefully soon.
       
       
       
      and some of the face's close ups because I think I took the farther away photos from a higher angle which didn't quite capture the face.
       


      One thing I've found out especially towards the end of this project is that super glue and tight spaces really don't match and I managed to get the snow around and in a few places where it shouldn't be, including over the left hand's fingernails, which I took painstaking time and effort to make nice, only to get them covered by snow.
       
      The snow I used came from some modeling snow I had bought years ago. Up until now I'd been using baking soda for my snow effect, but I worried a bit that over the time it might yellow (time will tell I guess) and it would not look so nice in a few years. 
       
      In case anybody's interested, here’s the WIP I've been working with:
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/81156-grenadier-frost-giants/
      where you can also see ongoing process on the male as well.
       
      Anyhows, I hope you all enjoy taking a gander as much as I enjoyed painting her!

      Okey dokey, this one I finished this morning, an old knight from Ral Partha.  I think it's sculpted by Julie Guthrie, but not 100% sure.  My biggest problem was what to put on the shield, and my freehand is pretty rudimentary, sonot so perfectly sure how it came out.
       

       
      Anyhow, hope you guys enjoy him.

      Hi all,
      a figure I just finished yesterday (or so I thought).  This is the Ral Partha Town Constable, and I was kind of intrigued by him, as he isn't a very heroic or noble looking figure, he looks  a little bit lost, so I contacted Iron Wind and asked them if he was supposed to represent somebody and lo and behold, he is actually based on Tim Conway, and the figure at the time that was sold in his blister, a cowardly paladin, was based off of Don Knots. Who would have known?
      So I took these pictures yesterday quickly at lunch and posted them out where I usually do on Instagram, and as I looked at them, I noticed I had forgotten to paint something. So today's quiz is what did I forget to paint? To make it easier you can see it on the picture from behind.  Hopefully I don't get now 147 other things that I forgot to paint, but we'll see.

       
      Anyhoos, enjoy and happy Independence day to all you gringos!

      So here's another homage figure I just finished.  Ral Partha back in the day did a few figures based on popular figures of the time. The dwarf samurai I did recently was one, and here is another one, Elvis, King of the Bards.
       

      So hard to choose colors on him, so ended up kind of with a red, white and blue motif, kind of close to Fourth of July.  He has some really small circular eyes, but they turned out surprisingly well. When I was editing the photos and got a good look at them, they were actually pretty decently laced.  
      Anyhow, another great old Partha figure to enjoy!
