Male Storm Giant (Bones) (77163)

Recommended Posts

I saw this on your blog before I saw it here... 

 

Congratulations on the amzaing feat you have attained.  You have improved greatly over the time you have been painting the bones and you did it in such a way that you didn't burn completely out on them.  I'm excited that you have shown it IS possible to paint all those minis.  I'm looking forward to more Bones once you return from your Bones painting hiatus.

Thank you for your kind remarks about my accomplishment, Darkmeer!  

 

 

Congrats on painting Bones I !!!

 

Nice couple of giants!

 

Thank you,Xherman!

 

 

 

Congrats! That's a heck of an accomplishment!!  And the giants look good together. Well done!

 

Thanks, David!  I agree that they make a pretty good looking couple. :)

 

 

I really like the skin tone. Different and a nice contrast to the equipment.

 

Thank you, Peithetairos!   I wasn't sure how the skin was going to look when I started on it, so I have to say I was presently surprised at how effective it turned out.

Congratulation, very nice final piece to the whole set. Don't you want to take a picture of them all painted?

 

Your blog was always an inspiration for me, so I'm glad you will continue with Bones II & III in the future.

Great job!

 

I like the nail gem you added to the sword; where would one find those? Michael's and other craft stores, or somewhere else?

 

Also, congrats on finishing that big box of figures! I've still got a long way to go on mine....

Thank you, Pampala!   I'm glad to hear you found my blog inspirational.   I don't know about the feasibility of photographing them all now...they've become somewhat spread out over several projects and boxes.  Finding them all would be quite a chore!  :)

Thank you, Chaoswolf!    I got my nail art gems from the local Dollar Tree store.  More info here on my blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2016/02/tiny-gems-for-miniatures.html

      Tere Reaperlased! 
      So here's another miniature from the days gone by, a Julie Guthrie Female Giant, originally in her All Things Dark and Dangerous line.  This is apparently version two of the miniature.  The first one I painted maybe a year or so ago, a more primitive looking hill giant lady, who has always been one of my favorite figures Julie has sculpted along with her female centaur
       
      Julie Guthrie Hill Giant
       
      Julie Guthrie Centaurs
       
       
      Anyhoos, here she is:
       

       
      and then afterwards a comparison photo so you can see her against one of her contemporaries, a female mage:
       

       
      once again, color choice was so hard and I have no idea where the inspiration for purple hair came from. I think it was due to the fact that she wasn't a earth-tone hill giant, but a little more civilized. And we all know most civilized women have purple hair. 
       
      Anyhows, hope you enjoy!

      My partner for the Secret Sophie exchange this year was NecroMancer and they requested demons or some other stuff, so I painted the Queen of Hell.  About the same time I had ordered a 3D printer and I had found a base that kind of matched an idea I had in my head.  The printer was going to ship on time, then it wasn't, then it was, and finally came in just in time to print my display base. It is from the celestial pack by Archvillain Games. It's 100mm plus some overhang. For a bit of additional flair I added some blood imps to the base. 
       
      One thing about pre-made display bases though is they can be next to impossible to actually use if they are not designed well.  This base is an example of that as there is so much rubble that I had to carve away spaces for feet or build up the area with a bit of milliput to give them something to stand on. Since ancient statues were actually painted I decided to go with that and put a simple face on the bit of statue that remained.
       


       
      The Queen was actually painted before my printer arrived and because things hadn't gone crazy at work yet, I actually had time to paint her properly.  I went for a stylized NMM on her armor.  It was the first time I had tried NMM this way.  It worked but I need some more practice to really sell it.  I didn't want her to look like some cheap plastic figure (even though she kinda is ) so instead of going red like the blood imps I made her skin mostly human and then put the orange/red/purples in the midtones and shadows.
       
      Her wings don't fit in my tiny photo setup so...
       



       
      And with wings. They were not attached for shipping and needed a bit of support, so ignore the paint bottle.  Bones are evil.  Mold lines suddenly appear everywhere.  And for better or for worse, a year from now her wings will sink toward the earth, but they should rotate and touch the base.
       


       
      A few extra pics I took, if anyone wants to look

      This was a repaint from earlier this year. I bought Quickshade Strong Tone for speed painting some of my board games and tried it in Woody. I liked the way it worked for the most part but as you can tell I got some frosting when I matte coated it. Another thing that happened was my paint cracked on my base but I kinda like the way it looks. I probably won't bother fixing any of the issues as I moved on to another figure I am struggling with.

      Fun and quick one for RCL new release. Have been aiming for a more dull/gritty looks wtih a lot of my recent figures.

      Back in November I posted over on the Conversion WIP sub-forum about a mounted figure I was making using the Bones 4 Giant Rhinoceros Beetle and the Mudcroak Squog figure: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93699-frog-riding-beetle-conversion/
       
      This past week I finally got around to painting the converted figure, and I  wanted to share the results.
