Storm Giant 77163 (I'll come up with a cool name when he's done!)

Recommended Posts

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

So I worked on him a bit yesterday.

Boiled him to straighten out his sword covered some more of the fleshy areas and got a first layer or green stuff down.

Then after I finshed my Essay that's due tomorrow I went ahead and started fiddling with him again.

I think you are off to a great start. I like to use those those dolls that painters do for poses and such the few rare times when I sculpt things. Hands are horribly difficult to get right, so I usually cheat and get one from something the same size.

If not cheating by using a hand from something else, try to hide it in a way that looks natural.

One thought is to wrap his arm up in a cloak, as some duelists would do so as extra protection...

Granted that these guys are using light Rapier like swords, but when you lose your shield or off hand weapon, any thing helps when you are fighting for your life!

That is how Thorin Oakenshield got his name....

 

You could either wrap it more tightly to provide more protection, or sweep it out like a matador's cape as a mis-direction thing.

Also, some people would sew coins into the bottom hems of their cloaks, both to conceal them, and to add weight so that they could whip them around in sword fights....

 

Hope that sparks some ideas for you!

Okay so I need to get back to this and I have! He's got a real arm now, and I plan to work on him seriously tomorrow. He has to be prepped for R-con after all. Yay!

(Slightly terrified to be finally competing with the adults)

Great to see you back at it!

 

And don't forget that we are all quite child like around here!

 

It's more fun that way!!!!

 

And remember that the competition is not really you vs anyone else, see the rules on judging for an explanation...

Oh I know but it's going to be completely different from competing in the youth category

      Hello everyone, I completed this model last night. 14124 Kevis the Overlords Mage was sculpted by Chaz Elliott. This guy will be an evil evoker NPC in a campaign I'll be running.

      Hello everyone, I completed another mummy last night. 14280, Chosen of Sokar the Nefsokar Sergeant sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. Another amazing model, full of nice ornaments and sporting a crocodile head. Once again, I used the nnm technique and opted for purple clothes to distinguish it from the other mummies I recently painted.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of 14098, Khufu the Nefsokar Warlord sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
      This Warlord model is one of my all time favorite miniature, the scorpions on the axe, headpiece and necklace are fabulous.
       
      The storyline behind this mini is also fantastic.

      Good day everyone, here are pictures of 77105, Kagunk "Voorhees" the Ogre Chieftain sculpted by Tre Manor. This is the Bones version of the model.
      I added the axe blade on its spiked club, mounted it on a 2 inches square base and painted it with Reaper MSP paint.

      Monique de Noir 54mm #01444  NMM is not easy and I’m still working on my technique. I COULD have gone with a blue glaze to give it more of a steel look but I didn’t want to I do love the larget models though, easier to handle. TY for the great customer service on this btw, ReaperMini. My original one arrived with have her face higher up, so she looked funny. Customer Service was more than happy to resend it (I did send pics) after they verified the issue wasn’t on this new one. Sorry for the pic quality, I am not great at taking pics.
