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

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.)

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.

      Hello 
       
        This is my first post really on forums.  I normally post on Facebook. My wife and I paint models alot of the time side by side. Whilst I prep our quarterly contest entry we worked on these Storm Giants...  About half way done.

      Hi guys.  Here is my painted Bones Succubus.  Parts of her are a hot mess but I am so happy with her!!  I pushed through sone issues I was having and there are so many spots I learned on her.  For starters she has the first makeup I ever put on a mini.  She has eyeshadow, blush, lipstick complete with little white light dot on her lower lip for fun and a beauty mark!  I started with slightly less pronounced makeup but then she's a succubus, she would have exaggerated makeup I think.  The unfortunate thing about her is her right cheek has quite an indent and then a mold line a little past that.  I disguised the mold line by giving her a "lady sideburn" to match the one sculpted on the other side but there's nothing I can do about the indent.  Then her wings, for the first time I was able to get more of a variation in the colouring which I tried with my bat demon and ended up covering because I didn't like it.  Her dress could have used a bit more but I was done and I'm still working on the layering/highlighting in general.  One thing that still bothers me is the rough look of my paint jobs when I'm done.  I paint with a wet palette so thinning isn't an issue I don't think and don't put coats on top of drying paints so that's not causing it.  Hope everyone likes her as much as I do.  I even have a second copy of her to do later in my painting journey.

      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.
