That's a tremendous giant - great work, especially the face!

That is a very impressive paint job on the giant - and very well re-imagined to fit with 1/72nd

Wasn’t quite sure what you meant by Smurf and frost giant, then I looked to my left and saw my blue reaper frost giant….

Thanks! It took me an effort to paint again a big miniature after being painting only 1/72 models. And yes, as a proper Frost Gian he should be blue and wield an ice sword, but I didn't like it like that as I said.
Here's how he should be, painted by a true artist:

I’m not sure there really is a definition of ‘proper’ when it comes to frost giants. The blue one is good, but I think I like the colour choices on yours more!

Thank you Ben. I'd say that Frost Giants are blue, and normal, or in my case Norse, Giants are flesh tone.
Cheers,
