While I've been relatively inactive, my lovely wife has not. She's been working on a selection of figures some of which in my admittedly biased opinion are much better than anything I've ever done >.> 77265 - Drys, Dryad I love this figure and the paint job is so subtle. The shading on the greens is superb - unfortunately, I'll have to work out how to link the front again : ) EDIT - front of dryad: https://goo.gl/photos/1FRcQ5ZqZoqGt3dCA 77313 - Krug, Hill Giant Yet again, some gorgeous shading on this figure. 77314 - Golan, Hill Gi
Right, so this was one of those crazy ideas I had one afternoon. I looked at Jason Wiebe's Bones Hill Giant and decided his anger would best be directed at a golf ball. So, I painted him up as a Scottish gent and asked poor Jack to stand in for a golf tee. Just for fun, the tartan pattern is based on the Black Watch. The base is made from sculpey. The little rodents are supposed to be Orkney voles as an ode to Caddyshack. I made the bunker texture using sandpaper pressed into the clay. The cap is greenstuff. The skin colors are walnut brown, russet brown and chestnut brown.
Took a lot longer than I expected, but here are my giants. I learned a heck of a lot painting these guys, and only hope that I can apply it to smaller models. My only real problem is that I don't think that I boiled the smaller giant enough. He leans forward a lot, which makes him both a real pain to photograph and makes him quite tippy. He can stay upright on level terrain, but if there are any bumps he falls over. I'l probably be practicing molding a heavy boulder to attach behind him in the near future.
