Frost Giant 77544 DONE!

Recommended Posts

Bananas! Every part of this guy is amazing! I don't even know what part of him I like best. Every part from the horns, to the armor, to his weapon, his skin tone, right down to the base all adds up to one show stopping whole.

      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!

      Finally finished her.
      boy, that blue skin was tricky and I’m still not entirely happy, but considering how much time I spent on her I feel pretty good.

      Almost done... Just the snow and some painting details... 
      Really liked the model, and is 1 of the main reasons I backed bones 3...the posture was tough, I liked that a lot. 
      One of my first serious attempt of NMM, very happy with it. Unfortunately Tha backside if the axe is better than the front.... A well... 
      Hope u like. 
       
      Edit: icicles are from train-model building sets. Translucent plastic, and I sprayed a bit of white on the base of the icicle.
