My previous miniatures thread is about 15 years old with lots of broken links and lost pictures, so I thought I would start a new one.

First up, a trio of Reaper Bones Fire Giants:

I've got the second giant in metal and he is heavy enough that in a case with a bit off movement he snapped his plastic base in half. I don't really like Bones but for giants and big figs its great.

I've got piles of D&D, Reaper, & Warhammer Fantasy figs to paint but since getting into Bolt Action I will be surprised if I touch any of that for months. Trying to paint 27 28mm American Infantry by Tuesday. If I manage it its going to be a feat of amazing proportions for me since I'm a very slow painter.

I agree with you about Bones. I'm currently cranking out some more Vikings for a game I'm running at Winter War Convention towards the end of the month. Maybe in a couple of weeks I'll post something above table top quality.

What scale are you using? I have a ton of Flames of War figures I got in an auction I will never paint.

BA is 28mm scale. Though you can play it with others. You looking to sell those Flames of War figs? That is another game the Wargame group I found plays. I have a platoon of US bazooka figs for that system but haven't finished them up.

Anyone know where there are good instruction videos on painting miniatures?

I finished up 4 Vikings. These miniatures are from Saxon Miniatures, which was recently purchased by Warlord Games.

Thanks. They do not look great in these close ups, but they work well on the table top. I will try to take a picture of all of my Vikings and Saxons in the near future.

A trio of the new Wizkidz miniatures - a barmaid, a cart, and a dancing woman.

I painted that cart too, very useful in D&D and European theater WW2 gaming. I like the scale of the Wizkids stuff, not as big and out of proportion as Reaper.

Here's a trio of diverse figures. First up. crank up your P.I.L. and get ready for some late 1980s Citadel! I present the huge hands of the hunter:

Next up, is a miniature 25 or so years newer - a Cthonic fountain from the Reaper Bones line. I added some resin in the basin - hard to see from the pics.

Finally, another golden oldie from the Grendel resin line - the torture rack

Fine work as always. I've been toying with doing the same thing with that fountain model. What kind of resin or do you just use a two stage epoxy?
