That is magnificent!

 

The shield is marvelous, is all that sculpted in??? - that is terrific sculpting and you brought it to life magically

 

I don't care how big a mini is, they should never hide the face that deep below the helmet... I have no idea how you managed to get in there at all let alone get the details done so well - kudos!

 

There is a consistent level of restraint in this piece that makes it very believable - exquisitely done!

Thank you!

 

Yes, the designs on the shield were sculpted in.

 

Yeah, the face was a pain in the butt...I usually paint skin first except in the cases of heavily armored pieces.  I wound up going back and repainting most of the helmet after I did his face...even with the longer and thinner brushes it was a pain to get in there; lots of slop!

 

 

Absolutely wonderful! I love the colour scheme, and his deep blue skin! ::):

Thank you.  I tried three or four skin tones before I settled on that one.  First he was pale green, but it looked too Orcy...I forgot my blend for the more marble like pattern I used on the Bones I Storm Giant.  Then violet as in the books, but he felt like a Muppets extra.  I decided on the deep blue to try to match the Storm Titan from the D&D pre-paint line:

I took some more photos after being asked how big the piece was, and I thought I'd share them here as well.

"My, that's an awfully colorful statue.  Really held up with age."

"Who you callin' statue?"

"Oh, I'm sorry...clearly you're just...a terrifying Giant!  My mistake!"

"Oh, okay...wait, what was that about bein' old?"

Thanks for the kind words, all!

The shield was a challenge...tons of tiny detail in that thing.  I'm glad everyone liked how it came out!

 

 

Oh my gosh! That's an awesome giant! Well done on the painting. May have to pick him up. Do I dare ask how much he cost? 

 

He wasn't too bad...I think I paid $30.  I actually got him to round out a Miniature Market order for the free shipping...they're out of stock on him now, though.

The Gale Force 9 big guys are pretty reasonably priced now that they've improved their resin mix.  I still think the cost for the "medium" sized pieces is a bit absurd, though.

      Tomb Guardians over the past year has been asked to release our miniatures in a resin/plastic material because a lot of you do not like metal.  So for nearly a year we have discussed and researched the best way to produce a high quality, high detail miniature that is far above the current standard on the market.  We are happy to announce that we have found a method and decided to release all our 28mm monsters in a High Resolution Resin.  These miniatures will come with a 1 year guarantee, if you break one we will replace it for FREE!  Just mail it back to us.   Bobby Jackson, Jason Weibe, Gene Van Horne and Patrick Keith help create these amazing creatures.  We hope you enjoy our Monsters and want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

      Hey, all! Its been a little while and I finally sat down and painted something. I put these guys together and I'm really happy with the shading. I wanted to put some water on the bases, so I tried wrapping them with plastic and pouring realistic water in. It... did not go according to plan. The water cured unevenly, shrank, left weird tide lines, partially peeled off... Basically everything that could go wrong with it went wrong. Luckily, I had sealed the model before pouring the water, so I was able to peel it off with an exacto and some tweezers. I salvaged what I could and I think they still look pretty good.

      I present to you the almost nuclear looking troll that utilizes FolkArt's Ultra Dye "Purple Rain" as its inspiration and base shadow and wash.  Also included in the skin triad are Reaper Blood Red and Reaper Brilliant Red for the highlights.
       
      I'll add the remaining paint list later when they are in front of me.  For now, pictures:

      Technically this is a WIP since the base is unfinished, but the figure is done-ish..
