  1. I made a thing today... Iffin' I wasn't a Griffin this would have to be classified as a Frogcident. I will add part numbers to the tags if anyone can ID some of them.
  2. Storm Giant. Or Blue Zeus if you will. Being from the first Bones kickstarter, this mini is in the softer material. That big sword there was a noodle when I received it. I repositioned it with hot water, and again, it is for the most part OK even if it is slightly bent, it is only apparent from certain angles. Also, it has a mould line indentation groove going down the front shoulder that I probably should have filled, as it became very apparent after painting. I based it on a 76mm bespoke 3Dprinted round lipped base. For some reason,
  3. Giants are one of the types of monsters that I rarely use in my own game, but I happen to be playing in Storm King's Thunder, which is an entire module about giants. So yet again I find myself painting some monsters for my DM to use against me. This time it includes the Frost Giant King that I skipped out of Bones 3. I primed them with Reaper's Liners, Red for the Fire Giant Jailer, Grey for the Frost Giant King, and Blue for the Storm Giant. Much like the Sepia Liner, Red Liner doesn't seem to have the same adhesive quality as the Brown, Blue, and Grey Liners. Also, f
  4. Hey all! Last week and a half I've been contemplating painting the Male Storm Giant from Bones I. I honestly have not painted many mini's from Bones I, or many at all (I've painted like 7 in total maybe? And no other painting experience outside of Miniatures), and I just got Bones II, so I decided to get back into it. On this one, I want to practice layering, and blending layers (dry blend by laying paint over). Part of my inspiration for this is one of the sample images on the reaper store page. While I hope to emulate it in some respects, I doubt I can reach that level of amazing detail
  5. I've been working on the Bones Storm Giant for weeks and I finally finished. To celebrate, I paint some random stuff. STORM GIANT Painted in the style of the 5e storm giant. As part of the original Bombshell Babes Kickstarter, this Eye Slug was part of the Sidekicks line. For an upcoming D&D game, I painted this Bones Frog Demon as a Red Slaad. A player needed a Lawyer/Bard PC mini so I used this Varian Jeggare 2010 Gencon exclusive mini. And, just for the fun of it, here is one of the Rea
  6. I actually finished this guy a few weeks back, but I didn't have a good set up to take photos of larger miniatures. Then, I realized the recently arrived game mat from Ganesha Games "Axe and Brimstone" Kickstarter would make a great backdrop for the larger pieces. So, here's the Storm Giant Royal Guard from Gale Force 9's "Dungeon & Dragon Collector's Series". Feel the thunder, friends.
  7. This past week I painted the Male Storm Giant figure from the Bones 1 Kickstarter Storm Giants set. This finishes this set for me; and, more importantly, this finishes my Bones 1 Kickstarter paint-and-post project! I've now painted every single figure I received from the Bones 1 Kickstarter and posted a painting article about it on my All Bones About It blog. I have to say it's been an amazing journey along the way. I've had the chance to experiment with a lot of techniques, and learn a bunch of new things. Starting the blog led me here to the Reaper forums where I've met a lot of
  8. Over the weekend I finished up Yephima, Female Cloud Giant, from the Bones 1 Kickstarter Storm Giants set. So, she is listed in the Reaper online store as a Cloud Giant, but in the Kickstarter she was part of the Storm Giant set; so I debated which direction to go with her, and decided to go with the Storm Giant look. Next, I looked up the description of Storm Giants in my old D & D Monster Manual, and found out they can have violet skin and can have blue-black hair. Sounded like a nice painting challenge to me! Well, the purple skin and silver-grey eyes take some getting use to,
  9. So looking around the forums and I found the Year of the Giant painting contest. Since I was in an inspired painting mood I decided to break out Yephima and the male storm giant. I went and looked at alot of the other submitted giants in show-off, WIP, and Inspiration gallery. I was really inspired by Pragma's Storm Giant, especially the lava cracks on the shoulder. I decided to try and go the literal 'storm' giant route and went looking at photos of lighting strikes. I saw lots of blues, reds, purples, and whites, then I saw this one, I love the blue/green-teal highlighting the greys of th
  10. I've spent quite a bit of time trying to get the skin tone right for this miniature. My goal was to find a color that was found in the very worst storms. I also changed the color of the skirt a few times - including white and purple. I think ochre is the one I like the most. Next I need to work on the eyes (my bane!) and my basing (which I also hate doing!). I'd welcome any feedback on the piece. Thanks, Nick PS. This is a Julie Guthrie Bones mini; she's one of my favorites.
  11. I've started painting minis again, since this winter. I used to do some in my twentys but did not take the hobby seriously as i do now. For the last few months i've been furiously looking for my old models without success, until today! They are ral partha pewter models from the 1990's. I did not remember i had the rats , the neanderthal and the rhino, it was quite a surprise when i found them. The paint is chipped but i will remove it & redo'em. The wizards and the storm giant were done without primer, had no idea i should do that back then. All the models were done without the use o
  12. I am not 100% sure if this has been covered before or not, so apologies if this is a repost. Anyway, my storm giant is such a great sculpt, all except for his sword. No amount of boil/freeze action keeps it from really making me want to resort to bad viagra jokes. I'd imagine some kind of modding would help? I think the terms in use are pinning and drilling? anyway, I've never pinned anything before and I don't really want to start without seeking some advice. Anyone willing to impart some hard-won wisdom?
