Grenadier Frost Giantess

Recommended Posts

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.

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!

Fantastic, the skin tone is outstanding

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.

      Hello everyone! After seeing @Kangaroorex Grenadier 9601, Black Dragon, I decided it was time for me to salvage mine from the shelf of shame. Thanks for the motivation Kangaroorex. This model was sculpted by William Watt in 1988. Unfortunately, the one I bought some years ago had a few battle scars. It has a broken horn and a broken wing claw. Its main tail stinger and tongue were also broken. As a reference, the base is 75mm wide.

      One i don't believe has been posted here before, sculpted by John Dennett.  From the giants club series, which comes as a set with Obelisk, other assorted supporting pieces,  + a map in a small box approx. the side of a paper-back book. If you collected all the various giants and follow the map, + send in 10 proof of purchase codes to Grenadier (remember those days?), you would get a free "Giant King's throne"  sent to you in the mail. I've never seen the throne, if you have it please share.
         
            This one is not really a giant, but a Demon named Shaeglmon who serves the Demon Queen of Chaos named Azurg. They were  trapped in a place called the Hellwaste by powerful wizards.  Shaeglmon, also called the Hound of Azurg, is the governor of the Hellwaste and commands all the Demons and Undead trapped there, waiting for the day when their prison walls fail. Occasionally brave adventurers venture to the Hellwaste, the few that return bear horrifying tales, most are never heard from again.
            Not my best work but a cool model and it's different. Most importantly, i managed to find the complete set which is rare as the cowering victim  is tiny, about the size of a modern Halfling, and apparently easily lost as I've never seen another painted one
       
      . Pretty sure this is one of the parties that never comes back :) Last pic includes a modern Dwarf for scale

      Back after a 2 months break, with one of my oldest miniature. I bought this ninja with the katana some 35 years ago... ^_^; 
       
      It was time to paint him and his brothers (Grenadier Models, 1983) :

      continuing my quest to paint down some of my metal mountain of dragons is my second Green Dragon II from Grenadier.  I wound up with multiple copies of this dragon (I wont say how many but i still have another in its original box...) so when i noticed that i had primed this one a while ago, i decided to try the painting method from Mocha's painting a Rocky class during Reapercon (thanks @Mocha I am getting a lot of use out of that technique and it has definitely helped me with contrast in everything I paint) of starting with the darkest colors and working up to the brightest.  This is the result of my trial with the dragon of the month series .  I decided that since they liked swamps and other watery environments, i would give her a bed of dry river rocks in an underground cave.  (hey everyone likes a comfy bed but nobody really likes a wet bed!) so i started with the base the miniature came with and expanded from there bringing the rocks out from there.  The first pass had them all a monotone color which left the base looking almost black and white against the green dragon.  Interesting but not what i wanted.  Some colored inks later and we have a nice bed of various colored rocks!




       
      She comes out really vibrant with lots of shadow and contrast really nice!  About my only fault is i haven't given much thought to handling a different colored belly scale and how a significantly lighter scale would work given the steady darkening as the light lowers past the widest parts of the model. Oh well, maybe next time.
       
      For comparison, this is the same dragon I did about a decade ago:


       
      I like both but i dont have to guess about which one will catch the most attention, even though it took far less time and skill.  I am happy to give both of them a home, though i should probably give the older one a new base and maybe fix a few of his chips and dings (honorably gotten eating unwary PCs and their horses!)
       
      Hope you enjoy them!
