77313, 77314 - Hill Giants

Recommended Posts

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.

You did a really nice job basing the first one, and Bones plastic is super soft.  You could just chop off the integral base on the second one, crazy glue it to one of the new bases from the Kickstarter, and give it the same basing treatment as the first.

 

Great job on these!  I love the sculpts, and it's great to see someone jump right into painting them.

That's a great idea.  I sometimes miss the forest for the trees with this and forget that I can do things liKennedy that, instead assuming that I must use the pieces as car.   Thanks.

      The dire crocodile, dire boar, and dire crab were one of the Bones 4 addons, and it doesn't look like they've hit retail just yet. Which is a shame, because we need more giant crabs.
       
      The mud on the dire crocodile's base is just some water effect goo dribbled on that half of the base. The barnacles attached to the rocks on the dire crab's base were sculpted with green stuff. The rocks... those are just rocks.

      I'm looking for something to stick Bones, specifically Ma'al Drakar's terrain, to a wooden base. It's not thick enough, at the area I want to place it, to pin effectively.
       
      What kind of adhesives would work? I'm thinking epoxy, maybe? I just /really/ don't want to melt it accidentally and have to buy a new one.

      I just like the way the blue/black wings look.  - I did the same with the Librarian Sophie. (last month)  
      I really need to paint up one of the metal versions for contrast. 
      I'm not sure what she is serving - Meat, bread and salad is the way I painted it, but that could be cake instead.

      Been wanting to paint this one for awhile. Love the dynamic pose! Really happy with this one.

      Look at that winning smile!  He wants you to come for dinner....
      Reaper Bones Burrowing Horror (SKU 77372)
      I am sad to see the paint has rubbed off in some places, might have to try to patch that up by using some Reaper liner.
