I will add part numbers to the tags if anyone can ID some of them.

 

 

Awesome!!!!

 

 

The Right arm is from this guy:

For the Heretics unfamiliar with him, This is the main body:

I believe the wings are from Narthrax:

That only leaves the terrain piece behind him..

 

EDIT:

 

Terrain comes from Mashaaf

Is the sword arm still original? Can't see it in the pic

 

Yeah, You just enjoy yourself there, while I try to make sense from the things you randomly put together...

Storm Giant Dragonblood Sorcerer?

That makes it sound so deliberate... :;): It went more like this: reach hand into giant plastic tub, draw out item at random; Storm giant body! Look at 5-6 other parts, nope, nope, naw, hmm... Find mismatched wings. Ask others for help finding a match to either wing. (I'll remember who found that second wing and credit them here...it was Tim Hill the sculptor who found an opposite wing. ) Carve wings, carve back, dry fit, carve wings, carve back, dry fit, back to carving...

 

It was all very Dr Frankenstein....with a number of people playing Igor. I think Gene was the one that brought over the dragon that donated the left hand (claw)...or possibly Bobby.

 

 

Thank you Xherman!

The sword arm is no longer original. I will try to get a new picture from another angle. And I did insert a big chunk of something else's integral base into the round grey base.

 

So three part numbers down, three to go.

You're welcome..

 

The terrain is mostly Mashaaf's I believe.

 

Now to see the other piece of terrain and the sword arm...

 

We stragglers will solve the puzzle, since we have nothing better to do on the forums, since you guys are having ALL the fun there...

I snapped another picture yesterday. Different angle revealing the left claw/hand.

Some additional material has been added to the base. It needs a little more crevasse covering, maybe some sand and ballast added. The base is a 50mm 75mm round.

 

In the picture, a slightly out of focus Bob Ridolfi can be seen in the background. Purple pumpkin included just for Oneboot (...and Yes, on Thursday it did contain chocolate...long since gone by now.)

 

<< wandering off to look at OneBoot's thread and Mashaff's base >>

Confirmed. Four down; two to go.

 

Xherman is correct there is a big section of Mashaaf's base inserted as a drop in behind the giant's legs. Here it is in one of OneBoot's pictures:

(The part nearest the bottom of the photo.)

I tried , but I can't find it just yet.

 

For a moment I thought it was a stone Giant's hand or a werewolf's hand, but those aren't it..

 

TGP, aside from the Claw, what part are we missing now?

We are at 5 of 6 Xherman. The 5th part was the Reaper base. Edit: I am certain it was a dragon.

This is going to be an exciting paint-up!

At present I have almost No Idea what colors to do!

 

Next steps are: add more rocks, pebbles, sand to the base and break out some green stuff to work on the gaps and join ups.

      After several iterations of painting and base, I'm finally happy with my Griffon and I'm calling it finished! 
       
       
       
       
       

       
      The mini ended up looking a bit cartoony 
       
      I did go for something else initially, but it seemed too plain for a griffon, so I was happy to exchange realism for 'striking'. More on PSA.
       
      And I just finished redoing the base -- thanks for support on the WIP board.

      Dawnsfire roars her defiance at the setting sun. although they fear her power during the day, the servants of the Dark One will come again this night, seeking once again to gain the artifact that she and her ancestors have protected for a thousand years. Someday they may rest it from her and begin the ritual open the gates of the Night, but it will not be today.

      Presenting my first (and probably last) Sophie mini, Mermaid Sophie!
       
      Got stuck on her wings so she sat unfinished for a long while, and I never did manage to give her non-googly eyes, but overall I think she turned out decent.
       
      As always, and comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      I decided to go outside the box on dragon colors. 
      @Sirithiliel was a great inspiration,  but I don't want to steal her colors directly.  hopefully this one will look as good. 
       
      So here are the colors 
       
       
       
      lots of false starts  found a wing I liked but not a dragon scheme. 

       
       
      How about a google search on lizards? 
      Bother.  nature beat me too it.   well maybe ill modify it a little .... it does look a little sillier than I want. 
       

       
       
      Final Drawing: 

       
      Ill go lighter blue on the main body and dark & striped  on the tail
      So that's Red liner on the red area, and blue liner on the main body and tail. 
      that will give the face a less monotone coloring. 
      I want to really try and leave the liner visible between the scales. 
      Planning on getting the colors right first then adding thin black glaze to provide shading.   I guess white in half steps for  highlighting. 
      most color changes will be when the scale changes.  I'll paint the wings first, as proof of concept. 
       
      Kind of a fun way to spend the day.  the power went off while I was doing crayon drawings.  I didn't notice.

      Storm Giant. Or Blue Zeus if you will.
       

      Being from the first Bones kickstarter, this mini is in the softer material. That big sword there was a noodle when I received it. I repositioned it with hot water, and again, it is for the most part OK even if it is slightly bent, it is only apparent from certain angles.
      Also, it has a mould line indentation groove going down the front shoulder that I probably should have filled, as it became very apparent after painting.
      I based it on a 76mm bespoke 3Dprinted round lipped base.
       
       

      For some reason, the female is quite a lot smaller than the male. Say what you will, they certainly are giant sized when compared with humans!
      I chose to paint them as Papa Smurf and Smurfette, just because.
       
      In the third kickstarter Reaper started redoing the Giants, replacing them with significantly larger versions of previously released ones. These have not been remade (yet). I would expect them to do that in the expected-to-be-upcoming fifth kickstarter, as they have recently shown off a print of the same female figure in a different pose and at about twice the size.
