Really nice. The different tones for each of the leather types gives it an authentic feel that contrasts well with the  blue skin tones. Once I get all these undead out of my hair I've been meaning to have a go at them myself.

I used MSP for all of the paints involved, with the exception of some Hull Red by Vallejo in a few spots.  Specifically for the quiver, I wanted to make it seem like it was a magic item, like an Efficient Quiver or the like.  My intent was to have it look like polished color stained wood inlay.  First, I drew in some wood grain lines using a micron pen.  After that dried, I used MSP Clear Phthalo Blue only slightly diluted with water.  The blue was translucent enough and dark enough that I didn't have to do anything else to it.  That's it.

 

Also, for both of these models, I started with a white primer, specifically Tamiya White Fine Surface Primer.

As promised, updated with custom bases.  The bases are 3" diameter, following along 5e making giants huge monsters (as they should be).  The stone is actual bits of slate, painted to be a bit warmer than their natural color.  The snow is the usual PVA+baking soda.  I tried to give each of them disturbed snow behind, like a foot print or the like, to make them look less static.  I did have to fill in with "snow" under their feet, but overall I'm happy with the outcome.

 

As much as I like these, I feel like I've already learned so much while painting them, the next minis I paint should be even better.  Thank you to everyone who has commented thus far, I appreciate it.  Next big step is getting a halfway decent lightbox instead of just hanging a piece of paper up and shooting with my phone..

To finish off the set, here is the Winter Wolf that accompanies the spear-wielding Frost Giant Raider.  Custom base consisting of a wood plinth with a chunky cork board "stone", topped by the ever popular PVA+baking soda "snow".  It was essentially a speed paint, though I'm happy with the eyes.  I went with a 2" round base since Winter Wolves are considered large creatures, though this guy is really big for the base.  I figured I would just stick with the standard sizing according to both Pathfinder and D&D 5E.  Of course, the more I look at these close-up, the more I hate them, haha.
