The Frost Giant's Daughter

...or chilling the Bones.
I was lucky enough to piggy-back onto Lead Addict's massive REaper Bones purchase. I bought all the giants they had for a 15mm project I have in mind using Copplestone's lovely 15mm barbarian line. These are big figs, but never really give the true giant vibe until you put them up next to a 15mm miniature. I based this paint job directly off the one on the Reaper site.
Some people have complained the Bones aren't as crisp detail-wise as the lead version. I thought the detail was fine and paying $5 compared to $25-$30 these usually fetch? No brainer. She was a joy to paint.

Very nice job!

I think you and I are working on the same project, more or less. I read the Legends of Kern trilogy a couple of years ago. When Copplestone started releasing their barbarians, I had to start a wargaming project.

I'm using Hordes Tharn figures (painted with suitably pale skin) for my Ymirish, and a few plastic D&D miniatures for the snow serpent conjurations of Ymirish sorcerors, and for mountain spiders.

I've extended the "reach" of the project into nearby Aquilonia using Arthurian Roman 15mm figures from Splintered Light (by the way, their Saxon and other Dark Age personality packs have tons of interesting character figures).

Looking forward to seeing more about how your project comes along.

In particular the Tharn Ravagers, the White Mane special character figure, and the Tharn Sorcerer are my figs of choice for the Ymirish, should you be so inclined. Not cheap, but I picked mine up in a trade, so there is that.

Terrific! I like the little red beauty marks under her eyes.

Nice job. I've always had a bit of a thing for Frost and Fire Giants, love the Norse mythology...
