As noted, I didn’t have much interest in Giants initially but I’ve come to appreciate them. I have a fun sitting planned for the players in my current Celestial Winter campaign that involves being guests of Giants so…I needed to get some more painted.
I acquired the Storm Giant back during Reaper’s first Bones Kickstarter. It’s a fun miniature that I’ve used quite a bit for larger foes…the only problem has been it’s droopy sword. The hot water/ice water trick only remedied this temporarily so, inspired by recent work with goblins, I decided to try running a metal pin through it. I wasn’t able to get a pin all the way through but I was able to stabilize the base and point.
I’m satisfied with how the Storm Giant turned out. Even unpainted it’s appearance on the battlefield has long intimidated players and I think it retains that powerful presence.
