    Svetlana and Boerogg Blackrime

    For a recent game I was able to finish these two pieces, Svetlana, Frost Giant Princess and Boerogg Blackrime, Frost Giant Jarl. I was going for a whiter skin on the giants. I tried it on Boerogg, but it did not work out like I wanted so I left Svetlana the way she was. If you want to see their in between stages, check out my blog.

    77106: Rats; 77129: Rat Swarm

    My latest fix order arrived, and I was sick of painting gnolls. A very quick paint of some rats and rat swarms.

    Bones 77106 - Frost Giant

    It took forever, but I'm finally ready to call this guy done! Originally my plan had been to finish him in time for last year's Giants contest, but well, he sat neglected for a month or two as the holidays were super busy. This was the largest most involved figure I've ever painted. He was a real challenge, in many different ways. From the endless teeth and bones to paint, to fighting with the snow to get it looking how I wanted, to even photographing him at the end. A big thanks to Michael Proctor for his painted versions, as they were a huge inspiration and helped me sort through all of the details on this guy. If you're curious, I did do a sporatic WIP for this figure here. I wasn't very good at keeping it updated though. I did take notes on the colors I used, so if you're curious about anything, feel free to ask!
  4. This thread may be very sporadic. My painting time is usually between art projects, and these puppies are pretty big. I have gotten started on some frost giants: Reaper's 02599: Frorigh, Frost Giant, 77107: Svetlana, Frost Giant Princess, and 77106: Boerogg Blackrime, Frost Giant Jarl. I am also painting a frost giant from Otherworld Miniatures that is a really nice figure, and a 54mm scale jester I bought by mistake and decided to paint up as a frost giant (he was on sale for such a good price I just assumed he was 28mm scale). The metal figures I primed in my usual fashion, with a layer of white paint followed by a wash of Burnt Umber. For the two Bones figures, however, I used Buglips' recommended method of priming with Reaper Brown Liner. Let me just say this is my first use of Reaper paints, and I was impressed with the handling. Although I thinned the Brown Liner considerably, it gave full coverage of the Bones figures with a single coat. Indeed, the surprisingly dark and greyish liner gave the figures a bronzey metallic look where it went on thinly. Burnt Umber is a dark color when applied thickly, but the contrast between it and Brown Liner was striking. I started painting the giants' skin with a mix of Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna, adjusted to just the blue side of a neutral grey and lightened with various amounts of Titanium White. These are the only color mixes I have used so far. I like to do the faces first so I don't have to worry about them later. (Although I will probably add refinements as I go along because I can never seem to let a part of a figure be done when I am painting it, but always see more places which can be improved.) I figured frost giants would have icy blue eyes. One odd thing, these figures are huge but their eyes are tiny. They were definitely just within the range of my being able to see what I was doing, and I still had to check things with a loupe as I worked. The Reaper frost giant princess, Svetlana, is usually painted as though she were wearing a mask, although I gather that was not the original sculptor's intent. I decided to paint her wearing a mask open at the mouth, showing her mouth and chin. I haven't painted the Reaper jarl's teeth yet, so his face looks a little odd. The older Reaper frost giant is really big. He reminds me a little of a Muppet giant monster. The Otherworld frost giant is really exquisitely sculpted. I should look up the artist. I need to go back and look up the company that made the jester figure. It comes with two alternate heads and is kind of cute. I decided to make this one looking soulfully up and out rather than malevolently down at puny humans like the others. No that he's painted it's harder to see, but under that smiley-looking moustache his mouth is actually set rather sadly.
  5. 77106- Boerogg Blackrime, Frost Giant Jarl I painted him entirely with two colors, plus white. I found a long time ago that one could get a broad range of colors, from brilliant blues and firey oranges to soft greys and a deep violet near-black simply by mixing different proportions of Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna with white. So he's not quite a monochrome, more of a duochrome. It was a fun exercise. The pictures are mostly taken from a low point of view to give a human's-eye look up at the giant. I painted the frost giant princess similarly. I'll be posting her soon. Edit: She's here.
  6. This was my in the Fantasy Large entry at Gateway (Strategicon) this past weekend. He took 1st place in his category and Best in Show, which I was not expecting. I want to thank everyone who replied in my WIP on this guy, I could not have have done it without you.

    2014 Gateway Entries WIP

    This will be my thread for my entries for the painting competition at Gateway at the end of the month. Those of you who were looking at my consolidated WIP know that I did two entries, a fantasy large and a fantasy single, for Gamex at the end of May. Gateway is part of the same convention circuit as Gamex and I plan on entering the same categories. My single entry is the Female Anti-Paladin with Sword and Shield from Darksword. This was the first miniature I got from them and I cannot wait to start on her. For now she is primed and ready to go. My large entry is Reaper's Frost Giant Jarl, Boerogg Blackrime. He is prepped and ready to as well. As some of you know I was not sure what shape base to use for him and after not being able to locate a hexagon, I went with the oval. I also decided to do a simple rock and snow base.

    Fire (elemental) and Ice (giant)

    Finally able to get a good picture of my large fire elemental. That material is the stuff photobombs are made of. My frost giant got a Crackle treatment on his base, next time I'll use more though...
