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.

post-14060-0-09796500-1445962928_thumb.jpg

 

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

      My first post on the Reaper Forum, so please be nice! 
       
      Not 100% sure where to post this as it falls into several categories. but here it is anyway - my Reaper Bones Hill Giant "Tribe" and their hillside display base. I posted these in my regular Warhammer forum but they are too far removed from WFB to gain much interest, so I thought I'd share them here in their "proper" home.
       
      I've always painted miniatures with the "excuse" that they will be used to play games with, whether that be D&D or Warhammer or anything in between, so my emphasis is on table-ready minis rather than masterpieces. This is one of the first projects I've done without a clear gaming purpose, but because I'm a gamer at heart I still needed to put everything on individual bases for two reasons -
      1 - "just in case" a gaming use comes up
      2 - because gaming bases excuses a gaming paint job!
       
      I decided on hex bases because I liked the way they tessellate
       
      The paint scheme, choice of pets and landscape are inspired by my AD&D days, I'm constantly trying to recapture my youth! (Glad to say that Reaper Bones have finally made this sort of project practical and affordable, and I hope to follow it with similar projects using the other trad D&D Giant races.)
       

       
      All 11 miniatures used (and the 11th is very hard to spot in these two pictures!) are from Reaper, mostly Bones. There are a few relatively simple conversions, mostly so I could use two pairs of giants without them being identical.
      The major scenic elements (trees and rocks) are made from errr real trees and real rocks, while almost all of the greenery is from a range of suppliers (Citadel, Army Painter and so on)
      I tried to position all of the models so that they are focused on something located just in front of the scene - presumably, a party of hostile adventurers!
       
      I don't want to drown people in images, but if there is interest I can post individual pictures of each giant and some WIP pictures of the project, as well as the identity of that 11th miniature...

      Hi everyone, here's another Dungeon Dwellers model. 07012, Caerindra Thistlemoor was sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I painted it with Reaper’s MSP acrylics, shaded with Citadel inks, used Vallejo Acrylic Matt Varnish and 3D printed the base. Her left eye is not as sharp as I'd like it to be, she seems to have a black eye, I will need to fix this.

      It's far from perfect... but as my first test bed, I like to think he came out decently.

      Enjoy!

      I’m still struggling with nmm but as the community knows, it’s pretty difficult. Anyway I’m generally happy with this figure. If you have tips on nmm that worked for you, please share.

      I painted this guy up, despite having eyes on Gale Force 9's Behir for my personal use. Decided to go ahead and liquidate it in a certain auction site, but so far, no takers. Ah, well. It's still a nice looking mini, so it doesn't hurt to have one around until I manage to finish painting the GF9 Behir... Comments, recommendations, and suggestions are appreciated.
