Since I’m playing in the Storm King’s Thunder campaign on Wednesdays, I’ve been inspired to work on one of the few giants I have in my collection, the Bone 2 Stone Giant from Expansion Set #1.

 

As usual, I started by scrubbing him with a toothbrush and warm soapy water. His club arm fell off, and the glue holding in his other arm wasn’t looking so good either. If anything, it seemed more like rubber cement than the super glue I’m used to. I removed the arm, cleaned off the glue residue from all parts, and then glued him back together.

I don’t have a lot of WiP pictures, but I started with a base of Grey Liner, and then added increasing amounts of Stone Grey, then Linen White to get it to this stage of the skin. I used the same colors for the eyes. A touch of Monster Maw was used for the lower lip, and the bags under his eyes.

The club was painted with a heavy brush of Redstone Shadow over the liner. The loin cloth, belt, and straps were painted with Rich Leather.

All of this was done in about 100 minutes (the runtime of Ant-Man).

One thing that’s kept me away from painting big minis is the fact that I have little space to display them, or store them. They tend to have pretty big footprints (bases). This guy, while tall, isn’t really bulky. However he really should be on a 3” base… I’m thinking about magnetizing him, so he can pop off the base for storage.

Best painting at one beer in or two? I do best homework on a single glass of wine, but painting probably a single 4-6% alcohol beer. Easier to paint with alcohol than caffeine for me though! 

 

Also.... I **must** ask.... 

 

What type of stone is your giant? ::P:

That's a pretty good start for a little over an hour and a half!

Thanks!

The beer didn't get too skunky?

Nope! I don't think I'll let it sit around too long though, just in case...

1 beer. If I have 2 I can't concentrate/focus enough. 

 

Uh... grey stone? As he's rather fleshy looking, I didn't think he was actually made of stone. ::P:
