About this project

Maybe it was some sort of bureaucratic oversight on the part of the divine penitentiary system? Maybe the waning health and advanced age of the Giant's High King caused his children to begin their machinations to seize his power? Perhaps they were awakened by the coming of an even greater threat? Whatever the reason, the Giants have returned! 

 

Ever since we made our second Troll back in 2013 I've wanted to do a project that is all huge-sized characters. I've daydreamed for years about the kinds of shenanigans that a party of trolls, giants, and ents would get up to: What would their motivations be? Who would dare take on a balanced party of huge-class creatures? What kind of force for good (or evil) could they become?

 

This project is our chance to find out! We're going to make a bunch of giants and stuff so we (...and um you too I guess) can create a ton of awesome epic encounters and adventures!

 

In addition to making new huge-sized creatures, we'll also be offering our previously made huge-sized miniatures. You'll be able to get all of these oldies through this project (or on our website during this campaign while supplies last) for their original kickstarter prices! You'll also be able to get a 20% discount on everything else in our store during this kickstarter campaign by entering the coupon code GIANTKICK during the campaign!

We've already created 7 Huge Adventurers through our previous projects, and we are planning to make even more through this project, some of which Mike has already begun sculpting!

 They are, for the most part, trolls, full of personality and charm, but not all huge creatures are so friendly. The ancient race of giants is one of majesty and might. For centuries beyond counting, they have ruled the mountaintops, aloof and apart from the petty races that squabble below. The more majestic of these giants are proportionally closer to humans, but are still much bigger than your average 28mm figure! They will be the same 65mm to the eyes that the trolls have been.

The huge-sized miniatures above will all be produced by this Kickstarter if we meet the base goal, cast in urethane resin, and will be available as choices for any of the reward levels that include giants.

Such large creatures obviously need someone to serve them! As we hit stretch goals, much (much) smaller miniatures will be included as companions to the Huge ones. As we unlock these goals, more will be announced!

Le Flea is a sneaky little Thi-Keen with a taste for blood. When we hit $10,000 Le Flea (cast in lead-free pewter) will automatically accompany the Wolf Lord. So when you purchase the Wolf Lord, Le Flea is included. This miniature will measure approximately 13mm to the eyes.

While this Crow is a small-class creature, it's bigger than most other crows. Like, it would be the size of an eagle. So it's a crow for giants I guess. To a giant, it is the size that a normal crow would be to a human (that's what I'm trying to say). When we hit $15,000 the Crow (cast in lead-free pewter) will automatically accompany the Frost Giant.

If we reach these goals, more stretch goals will be dreamed up, possibly based on your suggestions!

Thanks!

I'm in--a little confused by the tier structure though. Is there a new approach to early bird pricing? (If so, I like it! Worried that's just a typo, though.)

Looks like they are giving a very limited amount of 10 giants for the prices of 7 giants as an earlybird. I wouldn't complain either!

I went in for two, it was the ability to grab one of the previous sculpts that caught my attention. I will probably go for two of these three: Troll Mage, Frost Giant, or Cloud Giant. I have always like the look of the Troll Mage and I really like the concepts for the Frost and Cloud Giants.

Yeah--I just don't want to screw them over if they meant to make that $120 or something.

It shows that it's an EB (with a very limited #) and then the next tier of 10 giants is clearly marked as "non early bird" with the price and an unlimited #.

Missed the early bird...

Their trolls remind me of art by Swedish artist Rolf Lidberg...

 

I have quite a few of his pics from my grandparents...

      This Kickstarter campaign is a collaboration between legendary game designer Jennell Jaquays and sculptor Darcy Perry, following the appearance of ducks in the previous Star Hat Miniatures Kickstarter: Delvers Lost in the Dungeons of Doom III. 
      This is also an opportunity for YOU to contribute! With the Legendary Hero pledge, YOU can collaborate with us to bring new characters to the Quack Keep module and gaming table.
      The Module  
      This Kickstarter will provide funds for Quack Keep - inspired by classic game adventure modules of the past but written to be more approachable for a new generation of role-players and workable with a wide range of game rules thanks to the 5th Wall Generic Rank System. It even comes with a fold-out GM screen as a cover!
       
      The title is a nod to Quag Keep, the first novel based on a roleplaying game, published by Andre Norton in 1978 - around the same time that Jennell Jaquays began producing Advanced Dungeons & Dragons and Runequest modules for Judges Guild. The Caverns of Thracia and Dark Tower are both best-selling examples of her early work, both still in print after almost 40 years.  
      The later inspired Legendary Duck Tower and other Tales, which included a ducky-pastiche of her original Dark Tower cover. It was due to this and her work for Chaosium that Jennell Jaquays "was pretty much labeled as that designer and artist who did the ducks."

      So I have a subplot involving a goat and my players going into a dungeon with said goat. So I had to paint a goat. This is the only goat model I own, comes with a gnomeish leg to boot. :)

      I painted Stonehaven’s Halfling Berserker to use as my gnome barbarian D&D character. It was a fairly quick paint job for me, only a few hours. I had finished everything but the metallics a few months ago and kept forgetting to finish her up.
