Lidless Eye Hobbies: The Giants of Bones 3

Recommended Posts

That's a great bunch of giants. I like the frost giants a lot more that I thought I would during the campaign. The Inuit style are still my favorite but these look terrific all painted up. I especially like how you painted up the horns.

Nicely done on all of them! And so quick. I struggle with finishing a 15mm figure in a couple weeks.


Honestly, these days, most of my technique is aimed at finishing pieces in bulk, rather than detail.  I want to get them game ready rather than sit unused in a bin for years.  Not like I don't have plenty of miniatures of that latter description, though!

Thanks!  It's Reaper's "Graveyard Bone" with a Citadel "Gryphon Sepia" wash over it.

8 giants? I aim for 6 figures a month, and giants count as two.  (at lest the hippo king did.) 

The frost giants look especially nice, except the queen.  

she could us a little more work- the front of her dress is off somehow and slightly blotchy skin, which sticks out since so much of it is exposed.

Yeah, the dress discoloration is from the sealant...left a bit of fog.  Fixing it stripped a bit off of her.  I'm not sure if that's the reason for the blotchy skin, I may need to touch that up directly between projects.

      I was inspired by limey72  work doing NMM Gold on the enlarged Dwarf over in Works in Progress. I wanted to do a brass like robot or construct, so I pulled out this Golem. I also wanted to try some AK weather effect acrylic pencils I have had for a time. I think it ended with too much brown and ended up wood looking. But it has grown on me, so I will finish up his base and call it done. Hope you like it.

      I forgot to post these earlier as it's been a crazy last few months, but my first finished miniatures of 2020 were Putrid Blightkings for an upcoming Warhammer escalation league.  Some were rebased for AoS and touched up, some were brand new(ish)

      My exchange partner this time around was @Corporea.  She was one of those troublesome ones that are fine with anything.  This of course means that I am free to do anything, so what I did was use her as an excuse to test out airbrushing my Vallejo Air Metallics.  Because of that this mini is a little more metallic than I might have otherwise done.  The aluminum didn't want to airbrush, or hand brush for that matter, so I may have a bad bottle.  Other than that they all worked as expected. I.e. you can create a TMM effect by combining these paints with a regular paint for the shadows.
       
      I also tried my hand at a mosaic tile base.  The area I started with isn't as good as the rest of the base, but seeing as I am already late I didn't go back and take even more time to repaint that area.  Overall I thought it turned out pretty well, though I don't believe I'll be doing it on cork again. While I thought the imperfections in the surface could work as missing tiles, in practice they just ended up being in inconvenient places.

       
      But unfortunately I had to stick a mini on it.
       

       

       
      Full frontal metal shiny.
       

       
      And rotating around for those that want to look.
       
       
      I also attempted to create the look of texture by applying leather colors in a series of parallel lines.  I kind of liked it but at the same time I'm not sure that it comes across as any particular type of texture.
       

       
      And that's it for my 2019 exchange.  Next year I might even try to be on time.

      I’m working on trying to get this big guy painted to tabletop standard by the time I have to use him at our next Pathfinder D&D session to represent the Roc King on Tilagos Island in the Demiplane of Last Resort, in the Age of Worms adventure path.
