  1. Wizards of the Coast's Dungeons & Dragons Fire Giant Stalking the Steps This 25mm scale Fire Giant isn't humongous by today's miniature line standards but he has a lot of character. The sculptors, Chaz Elliot and then apprentice, Jason Wiebe, put a lot of great detail into this fellow. I personally love the knowing grin on his face. However, partly because of the scale and the sculpted position of the giant, I felt he wasn't set up right. So he was reposed a smidge. When I first looked him over at the work table, I held him on a slab of slate and tried to visualize him on a game board. It's fairly obvious that he was originally meant to be looking down at the puny humans before him but against the more prolific 28-32mm scale miniatures I own, he was looking at their chests or groins. So after playing around with slate pieces such, I finally figure him out. He needed his sword level. Well his arms were tight to his chest so repositioning the weapon that way would require practically resculpting him. But ... if I cut apart the integral base and and changed the elevation of his feet he looked like he was slinking up some stairs. Thus the step and repose. You can check out his painting WIP. The repositioning and base construction was done a long time ago before I was doing WIP posts. Enjoy. Added to Thrym's General Show Off List
  2. This is another old mini that has been sitting on the shelf of shame for some time. Wizards of the Coast 40022 Fire Giant Picture from Minibase I removed the integral base. I liked his pose but not where he was looking. So I wanted to have him stalking someone while walking up a set of steps. This brings his sword parallel with the ground and has him looking forward instead of at his feet. He was primed black and his armor a Phthalo Blue when he was shelved. I cleaned off the dust in prep to resume work on him. Enjoy.
  3. Giant Mountain Troll The Old Troll and the Boar I cleaned, repaired and repainted a long time baddy from our gaming sessions, Reaper's Giant Mountain Troll. He had fallen to the floor a few times over the years and had a gloss coat instead of a matte coat for a sealer. So he was quite due for the treatment. Given his look and feel, I decided to paint him as an older troll. His skin is duller. His hair receding considerably. He hasn't fought anyone in a long time. Even the boar for his dinner wasn't much of a hunt. So he's kept his clothing in relatively good repair and found and made some better furs to wear. He still prefers his old stone axe. He was happy to find some stone laced with mithral to make a new axe head for it though. You can check out the WIP post to see everything I did to get him here. WIP The ol'boy will return to the carry case to stand before those pesky fellas from yonder cities and protect his mountain or wherever he gets plopped down. Enjoy. Check him out in the Inspiration Gallery. (Approved) Added to Thrym's Index of Reaper Miniatures & Thrym's General Show Off List
  4. 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 cool folks. And I've also enjoyed getting to know my readers over on the blog. I painted this big fella in the same color scheme I used for his queen, Yephima, who I posted a couple weeks ago. I attempted to paint his shoulder armor as if it had lightning radiating from the face, to go with the Storm Giant theme. I also added a small nail-art gem to the hilt of his sword. Here are the king and queen together.
  5. 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, but otherwise I'm quite happy how she turned out. :) Just two figures left to paint in my Bones 1 Kickstarter Paint and Post blogging challenge! For the complete step-by-step painting article on my blog, see: Yephima
  6. Hellborn Troll On a Plane of Volcanic Glass This brute of a troll obviously has some extraplanar blood coursing through his veins. He walks the the wasteland of his abyssal home across sheets of volcanic glass that stretch unending. Dust flows around his footsteps and he holds aloft a large shard of the glass to summon his clan with his demonic power. This Warlord miniature is pretty friggin awesome and was waiting on further inspiration to get from the shelf of shame pack in to my queue. I told him no for some time. There is quite a bit of real dust ingrained with the sand on his base. But with my recent ... lets be optimistic and call it ... flood of painting he finally made it back to the fore. You can check out the WIP post to see everything I did to get him here. WIP He shall now join the ranks of his fellow giant-kin to stand against the machinations of those grievous creatures who call themselves "adventurers." Enjoy. Check him out in the Inspiration Gallery. (approved) Added to Thrym's Index of Reaper Miniatures & Thrym's General Show Off List
  7. My long time generic bad guy, the Giant Mountain Troll by Sandra Garrity, came out of the carry box to get cleaned, repainted, and repaired. His nose suffered a long drop to the floor flattened his bulbous nose considerably. Here's his stock photo from the catalog: Here he is with his paint cleaned off with Simple Green double dip and his nose filed back to sort of bulbous. Since he was well and truly beat down, I decided to make him my next piece with Lunkh being finished and the Hellborn Troll being mostly done. Stay tuned.
  8. Lunkh The Hill Giant and the Silver Dragon Egg If you haven't figured it out by now, I enjoy giants, and I have prolly said as much here more than once. There are many more giants in the queue that is my shelf of shame. However, I am doing my damnedest to move the queue. A long while ago I picked up this hunk of metal named, aptly, Lunkh. Much like the Ogre Mage, Master Phthalo, I based him on a two-inch square piece of shale along with stones, sand and ballast. He got a primer coat of some tan paint I had on hand at the time and was promptly shelved in my home office. You can check out the WIP post to see everything I did to get him here. WIP The foliage is different colors of moss along with some ground foam in muted red and bright green. The moss was washed with some Reaper Walnut Brown to enhance the inner shadows of the bushes. I present to you, "Lunkh, The Hill Giant and the Silver Dragon Egg" Enjoy. I hope you enjoy him. Check him out in the Inspiration Gallery.

  9. After many distractions and other projects, I've finally finished my set of miniatures from the "Blood Rage" board game by CMoN. I've been working on them on and off (mostly off) for over a year...the first few Giants were finished over a year ago according to my Facebook memories. I've posted some of the monsters before, but I figured I'd put them in this Show Off as well as part of the set. First, we have the Gods of Asgard: Odin: Heimdall: Tyr: Frigga: Thor: Loki:
  10. Ogre Mage Master Phthalo I picked up this guy a while ago. He's an actual lead miniature from the Reaper P-65 Heavy Metal line that was later discontinued. The Bones material is much cheaper and far easier cut and convert. Not long after I got him I based him on a cavalry length base to fit his stance and primed him with tan and did some basecoating using craft paints I had. I recently decided to pick him back up and put some effort into him. You can check out the WIP to see everything I did to get him here. Final Pics: Enjoy. I hope you enjoy him. Check him out in the Inspiration Gallery. (approved) Added to Thrym's Index of Reaper Miniatures & Thrym's General Show Off List
  11. It's the surfing samurai ogre mage ... er ... just my P-65 Heavy Metal Ogre Mage. Yeah, the background was boring so I added a border. As you can see here, he's just basecoated and attached to a piece of slate which has been covered with ballast. I basecoated this guy a long time ago and shelved him because ... well, I wasn't ready to completely get into finishing him. I decided last night to pull him from the shelf of shame and resume work on him. I hooked him up to my holder ... then had to counter his weight with rocks, sand AND water ... he's a heavy bugger. I used craft paints at the time to basecoat him. I am okay with the basecoating and enjoy the palette I started. So, colors ... The green hakama pants and robe are Celery. His skin is Phthalo Blue. The Pack Cover is Lavendar. The Fur Jacket is Antique Gold. And the orange-like highlights are Deep Sea Coral(?) ... I think. Been a while. The ground is Sunflower Yellow. The gist of the color scheme was desaturated tones to start with. We'll see where this leads.
  12. 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 the clouds and the ice-blue highlight of the actual lighting. Hopefully the final result will look similar. Comments and suggestions are welcome. Current state of the models Since I wanted the blue tint and I've been really happy with Buglips' brown liner discovery I went with Reaper's blue liner to base my bones. A technique that I've been playing with but not really focusing on has been to dilute the paint to almost a glaze to allow more of the undertones to show through. I figure that this color scheme would benefit the most from this to really try and get the blending and depth that I'm looking for. First up, the base of Deep Ocean. The first of the glaze attempts. Armour Grey.
  13. Alrighty... My first official WIP thread yay...... So, I today I'm supposed to be studying for a test but I decided to take a paint break. SO, I picked a figure that looked fun and stuff... For reasons that are possibly classified, (lol, inside joke...) my storm giant whom for the moment I will call Flynn (not his official name) is missing an arm. I started putting flesh on him and then a bit of NMM and then I decided on some red fabric Then just a bit more work on the NMM & hair and flesh
  14. So, when I get both a sale notice and a back-in-stock notice at the same time, I get weak: At least the back three are appropriate for the upcoming "Storm King's Thunder" campaign, right?
  15. A trio of powerful Undead from Reaper, finished up with some other Undead encounters intended for Frostgrave games. The group: The Lich King (Barrow Warden Mystic) The Giant Skeleton (or should it be Skeleton Giant) And the Colossal Skeleton, so powerful he's busted through the dungeon ceiling (or backdrop, at least)
  16. So, I come before you with a Challenging Dilemma. I was Commissioned by a representative of the European branch of the D&D Minis Guild to provide a couple of prizes for their Championships in August, as well as a couple of minis needed by that individual for personal use. About a month ago, I was contacted by someone from the North American Branch to do the same thing for theirs! So, my dilemma is this, how do I do both groups justice in the time I have left? Due to Shipping times, I need the European items ready to go by late June at least. That means I'll have time to at least finish the NA Items. But, unfortunately, that means I will not be a part of the Summer Exchange this year. So, As this is a WIP Thread, I am of course posting pics of my work so far;) hear they are... First up is King Snuure, the Fire Giant King! He has one of the best Sculpts of the early DDM Run and catches a lot of the Flavor of the Iconic NPC, including a Cloak made from a White Dragon's Hide! Been wanting to repaint him for ages and finally the time has come. The Human Paladin from the Icons of the Realms first set. The DDM Guild has been releasing stats for the WizKids Line recently and the Pally here is a pretty good piece for the Skirmish game. I painted one for GenCon last year. This one is going to the European Champs. Snig the Axe here. Never did find out if Snig is the Goblin or the Weapon he weilds:P But its a cool little guy and has details i did not notice til now. The Feymire Crocodile. Part Reptile, Part Plant all Sorts of Nasty! Not the best Stats in the Game, but an awesome mini sculpt and a seriously BAD Stock paint job. I'm fixing that with my repaint. Just base coats and the start of Shading here, but already leaps and bounds beyond what it used to look like! So far so good. But I still have several more to work on that I cannot reveal quite yet. Any Constructive Comments are welcome. GF
  17. Hi guys, while still patiently waiting for the new, bigger fire giants, I really needed a couple of them for my D&D game to attack the party while they were in a dwarven fortress. These "giants" are really rather small, but they are really cool sculpts. I really liked the concept art for the miniatures (see here and here), so I tried to adapt the color scheme. However, I went with a darker skin tone which was not so clever from a contrast point of view. I hope you like them, anyway! Please click on the images for a more detailed/less compressed 1420px version! C&C welcome!
  18. Hill Giant Krug that I worked up recently. Used rocks from outside to dress up the base.
  19. Hey guys back again! Got this giant in the post the other day and seeing him had a vision of him being a marble skinned giant! I really hope I have captured this effect and am presenting him for your viewing pleasure! All comments are wanted and appreciated!!
  20. Recently painted up the Svetlana figure. I'm using her as the young daughter of a Cloud Giant King, so didn't opt for the "normal" blue Frost Giant skin. Blog Post: http://mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca/2016/05/figure-for-giant-princess.html Kevin in Edmonton http://mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca
  21. For Halloween!! I'll be bringing him with me to the Artists Conference
  22. Finished this up tonight as my first official Frostgrave figure.. now to work on more and some terrain
  23. I felt less was more with this one.
  24. This guy is nuts. Am I right people? (If you know what I mean)
  25. I painted her! I love her so much!! I've never bought her for one reason or another, but when she came in my secret sophie package, I knew I had to paint her right then. I totally, unashamedly copied Anne's color scheme because it was perfect. C&c always welcome, whatcha think?!
