Hi! One of my several projects is to build mythological armies for HOTT: 12 elements with a mix of historical and Fantasy figures, something that even a slow painter as I should be able to reach.

The figures so far:

Among them, one of the frost giants:

Will you guess where this figure comes from ?

You will probably think this is weird, but I really, really like the way you have painted the hair and beards on the frost giants. Not the shade of gray my hair has turned (!), but a very appropriate shade, none-the-less. I also like the way every hair seems to show up.

Superb brush work on the Dwarves (first photo, upper left corner)! I have two(?) sets of them, with one set finished, and the other around 50% completed. I'm a mass army painter. Your work is much, much more detailed. And gorgeous. Thanks for sharing. Cheers!

Nice work!

Thank you for your comments!

@Grelber: The giants are expertly sculpted figures, and the haire in particular was very xell done, so the painting was rather easy.

@Sgt Slag: Oh yes, I have seen your dwarves, exactly what I would need for a Fantasy army, but I am a slow painter and I have only one box.
