I wanted my Frost Giant to be original, and unique, without taking away from the excellent Mantic maxiature, (You could hardly call it a miniature). Hopefully, i’ve done the project justice, and thanks to Steve for the guitar idea, which i jumped at the challenge and ran away with it.
I was struggling to find strings for the guitar but then I thought, hey it’s a giant… He probably saw a bard with a lute and thought that looks cool, i want one of those. But didn’t look too closely at the details…No one has had the nerve to point out it’s supposed to have strings in case the giant uses their intestine as cat gut
Final pics of the completed model, with final touch ups done, base completed, arrows added, and a wash of purple to bring out the inner publish Freakazoid. As the Crosby Stills and Nash song goes, “Let your freak flag fly!” I might still add a couple of guitar strings… We’ll see, but I’m all out of glue.
One slight amendment… I took a bit of a risk and manipulated the forefinger and pinky finger to change the pose on them, using my snippers, hot water and pliers to straighten them out… as best I could, while bending the middle fingers in more. Not a complete success but I’m wary of pushing my luck and leaving him without a digit.
I paired down the shoulder too as it was a bit wobbly, so it’d get a better bond. More solid already, I just need to fill in the cracks and paint over it again
This guy is beyond cool!
Many thanks. i’m pretty chuffed with the final results, (and also to get a mention by the Mantic Facebook page too!)
