That's a wonderful figure. The subdued colours are splendidly set off by the bright gold of the arm-band. Definitely put this on display somewhere.

That's a pretty figure.  My Grenadier knowledge is weak, I got into miniatures when they were waning and there wasn't as much of their product in the game stores.  She's a neat gem, I may look for one of my own.

She is quite beautiful!  Her skin is so delicately frosty, and I love her face.

Absolutely----I think you have created my mew preference for frost kin skin tones. Very well done.

Thanks so much, the skin started out as ghost white, then down to some blues and dark elf triad, and then again up to white.

Thank you!  I almost considered doing the armband a silver color and only using the earrings as the contrast, but then wanted a bit more of a pop.  She'll end up going in my display case with all my other things!

It's really one of my favorite figures ever, that and a female satyr that John Dennett also sculpted.  When we were little we did both Grenadier and Partha, so when I got back into minis, I started collecting both again, through the miracle of Ebay.  This chick is different in a slightly different version, without the antlers, from Mirliton in Italy.  There were two versions of her, one with antlers and another one they sold in a blister pack that didn't have them, but a headband that's flatter.

Thanks!  I've always thought of frost giants as almost white with blue and purply tints, but with light/white hair to match.  I remember the Monster Manual talked about blonde or yellow hair for frost giants. That just didn't seem quite right.

Stunning but subtle I love it 

 

 

Thanks very much, wanted her to kind of blend into a snowy backdrop!

Thank you Limey72, really appreciate it!
 

and I just checked, Master Buglips, Mirliton calls her a "Frost Princess".

I agree completely, at least about this being one of my favorite figures!

Thank you much!  the base color of the skin was ghost white, and then blue and dark elf skin washes, while the clothing was linen white, with more brownish washes.

Excellent work!

I recently found out that a good portion of the Grenadier Giant's Club, including this piece, began as a re-branding of a failed larger-scale display line.  It makes sense, considering the huge variations in design on some of them.

      This is my first post here on the forums, but I've been a fan of Reaper for a while now.  I've also been painting a while, but only got serious about learning in the last couple years.  I've been working at tabletop ready level until I set my sights on these two frost giants.  The detail is amazing in these models, so I felt like I had to throw myself into it and produce the best paint job I could.  These are the very first pieces I've ever felt were worth considering entering into a competition of any sort.  They are currently my best work, and yet I know that I have a long way to go with much to learn.  Together they took 5 days to complete, working about 6-8 hours each day while I recover from shoulder surgery.
       
      Some quick notes:
      1. The bases are what came with the minis, please disregard them, I plan on following up in this post with custom bases for each of them.
      2. The Winter Wolf that belongs to the one with the spear is not done yet.  He'll be forthcoming in time.
      3. Yes, I modded the spear.  I cut off the head and used a spare brush protector tube to connect it to a wood dowel.  I used a stain marker on the wood dowel and painted the spear head and tube.  This meant that I had to drill out her hand.  It was a bit dicey, but it turned out well, I think.
       
      Thanks,

      My mother died last month. While cleaning up her house my sister found this miniature, probably the last survivor of my original collection, most of which I took with me to college and later gave away.
       
      Does anyone know what it is? I would have purchased it between 1980 and 1984.

      This is the Wizard from Grenadier’s Wizards box set circa 1980. Most of the minis from the set were called variations like Sorcerer, Illusionist, Magician, and Warlock. But there are also 2 druids and a cleric included. 
       
      I painted all the minis from the set in my teens, then wanted to repaint them in my early 20’s so I had my friend sandblast(!) the paint off. That eroded much of the detail. So the detail in the beard, hands, imp, is almost all painted in.

      Loved these minis from the Kickstarter. I thought they would be taller but still enjoyed painting them. These are nearly done, I just need to highlight again and then tidy up all the things I ignore on smaller models because they don't show up... 
       
      Also need to do a snow effects base.

      Hello everybody,
      here's one I just completed, a Ral Partha female adventurer, I think sculpted by Julie Guthrie, because it's from the All Things Dark and Dangerous range.  Hoping the photos are in proper focus.

       
      I really enjoyed the fact she had a sling and that the sling ball was sculpted into it.  Not overly happy with my metals on this one, but she'll do for now!
