Hello again my Reaperdoodles! here is the second one I finished just yesterday, a female giant from the Arcana Unearthed line that Iron Wind Metals puts out, sculpted by John Winter. I've always liked this figure since the first time I saw her, probably a decade ago, but finally got around to painting her. Hardest part as usual was to try to choose the colors, but hopefully the palette is pleasant enough. I don't know anything about the Arcana Unearthed game or system, but she's listed as a giant, which looking back into the early nineties, she was probably a pretty large figure, but when I compare to her modern Reaper figures, she is really pretty much the same size. I have this photo as a comparison. The joy of scale creep!
This is my first post here on the forums, but I've been a fan of Reaper for a while now. I've also been painting a while, but only got serious about learning in the last couple years. I've been working at tabletop ready level until I set my sights on these two frost giants. The detail is amazing in these models, so I felt like I had to throw myself into it and produce the best paint job I could. These are the very first pieces I've ever felt were worth considering entering into a competition of any sort. They are currently my best work, and yet I know that I have a long way to go with much to learn. Together they took 5 days to complete, working about 6-8 hours each day while I recover from shoulder surgery. Some quick notes: 1. The bases are what came with the minis, please disregard them, I plan on following up in this post with custom bases for each of them. 2. The Winter Wolf that belongs to the one with the spear is not done yet. He'll be forthcoming in time. 3. Yes, I modded the spear. I cut off the head and used a spare brush protector tube to connect it to a wood dowel. I used a stain marker on the wood dowel and painted the spear head and tube. This meant that I had to drill out her hand. It was a bit dicey, but it turned out well, I think. Thanks, TPSminis
Couple years old, but this was my first large size mini I painted. Had a lot of fun with it. I also imagined fire giants as having coal black skin, and I wanted to do something to make the face pop a bit because of how dark it was so I did some war paint type thing. Looking back now, there are a few things I'd like to redo on her. I've found that is a danger of taking pics of older minis, haha.
