I started on this last night.  Flesh tones have never been my strongest skill.  So far I'm happy with the way the face of the model is turning out.  The veins on the arms... ugh.  

Im hoping to more or less complete Krug today.  Ambishious project for me anyways.


I'm thinking about making the hand wrap on the left hand bloodied?  Suggestions?


Any tips on fingernails?  Usually I'd scmere on some off-white, but that might look a little cheesy.

Well, here it is.  It's not 100% done, but given my one-day timeline to finish, it turned out better than I expected.


I have some of the skin-tones in my wet pallet.  Hopefully they'll last a day or three.  Id like to fill in the holes in the models back.  If not I may try to make some green-stuff paper clip arrows.  I haven't made up my mind just yet.


Id like to brighten up some of the metal bits around his waist, and chest.   They're a little dark for my taste.


Revisiting the left eye is also on my list.  Honestly you can't (well I can't) see the wonky eye without magnification.


looking at the pictures I might have some tweeking to do on the fingernails yet too.


All in all I'm pretty proud of today's work.  I'm half tempted just to finish the base and call it good.  We'll see if my miniature OCD will let me though!

      This is the Hill Giant from 77939. I have not finished the cat yet, so I only have the Giant here. I have been trying to add various colors (layers of color for one area/color) to my minis to make them more interesting. Following some of the painters here and other utubers and painters like Angel G. I used an Imperial Purple base for this entire mini and then did Troll Flesh as next base for skin and then built up reddish skin tones for skin and then went lighter tan. Hope you enjoy, I had fun painting him.

      Painted Krug up for an upcoming game with my kids. Can't wait to get him on the table

      From Bones Kickstarter 4 - I hope I got the code right as I can't find this guy on the Reaper website as yet. He came packed with a sabretooth which I didn't use for this project because AD&D giants keep dire wolves (of course!)
      I think he might be my favourite member of the tribe? I was tempted to give him a more "huntery" weapon, but I guess a horn and a club is all he needs, and hill giants aren't known for their finesse or craftsmanship.

      Two more members of my hill giant tribe, obviously the one on the left is the original. The one on the right has a totally seamless hair piece (!) and obviously a modified club based on one stolen from another giant. He also has a slightly more upright stance which required an extension of his furs and was probably more trouble than the effect is worth, to be honest.

      Chief of my Hill Giant Tribe. I dipped his hand in hot water to form the fingers around the added rock. The strange off-centre position on his base is so he fits into his tribe better...
