Great job on that!  (And I can’t see what you missed...)

 

Are the characters from a specific movie?

No idea. I remember the two together in the Apple Dumpling Gang years ago. Here’s a picture of that blister where they both appeared:  255F1EED-C6B7-49FA-9B81-FC2384CC1A0B.thumb.jpeg.1f421e280a353625e1216da6c5222354.jpeg  

 

Wasn’t Don Knots a cop Barney Fife or something? I’m thinking that’s why he has the cap.

I fail to find what's missing as well - but like figure and paint job!

Would it help to say it’s in the weaponry?

Good work!

 

And yes, Don Knotts played Deputy Barney Fife on the Andy Griffith show.

Thanks Chaoswolf! Couldn't remember the name of the program to save my life, but being it wasn't a life or death situation, was too lazy to hunt it down on the all powerful, all knowing internet.

Alrighty, so I'm guessing nobody ever figured it out, so a visual hint,  because I couldn't leave it undone.  627910039_DF-437C.JPG.22c7513da4958421066f3eff36d938d1.JPG

Does anybody see it now?

The Hilt...

Exactly!  I had blackened it out, with the thought of painting it afterwards and then for whatever reason ended up forgetting it was even there.  I didn't even notice it until after I'd taken the picture.

      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.

      Here is a Wyvern from Ral Partha - I love the sculpt -particularly the expression

      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!
