Maledrakh's 77163 Male Storm Giant

Recommended Posts

Nice work, I like the vibrant skin tone. Shame about the wonky sword but it just can't be avoided with some bones figures. Good work with the basing as well.

Very nice!

Yeah I have actually sold that Giant because I couldn't get his sword straight after multiple cold/hot water sessions.

I hope he will also get a redo in Bones Black.

 

EDIT:

And he's going to!

One reason the female model is a bit smaller is that she is a different species. He is storm giant, the largest of giantkind, and she is a cloud giant. Cloud giants are a bit smaller on average than storm giants. I like the smurfy color scheme.

During the original Kickstarter, these were only shown as pencil concept sketches, and they were labeled as a set of "storm giants". The change to cloud giant for the female happened sometime between the KS and the retail release. Might very well be because of the size difference. They also have different sculptors.

Anyway, because of this they are firmly lodged in my mind as being the same kind of giant whatever they are named as now.:winkthumbs:

      I envision this as a wandering band who collects the dead. Sometimes they need to make ther cargo dead first. Being death warmed over themselves, they do not know what else to do with their unlives.

      The chibi smallworld minis are all based on existing normal minis in the Reaper lines. I recognized five of them from the minis I have from earlier Bones kickstarters, but not Arnise the female barbarian elf that I painted the other day.
      The reason being that the original was included in the Bones 4 core set. An older metal mini being redone into Bones material it seems.

      So I painted her in a similar scheme.
       

      The metal version is called Arnise, Elven Sergeant from the Warlord line, and represents the Sergeant of Almirithil's frenzied half-elven berserkers in the Warlord lore.
       

      Why hello there, you remind me of someone I once knew...

      Plonking away a the Bones 4 core set, this is number 5:
       
       
      I am not a number! I am a free man!
       
       
      The metal version of this is called Ankoa, Barbarian Hero.
       
      He has a really small head compared to most of the other minis. I expect he is not too bright. Probably not destined to bear the jeweled crown of Aquilonia upon a troubled brow.
       

      There's a new playah in town! Come get some!
