This is a scale question. Specifically on the big guys in the back. When I had started roughing out the wireform and slapping a little base putty on them, I had the idea of Trolls in armor. Now that I'm looking at them compared to some reaper conversions, I'm thinking they might end up having to be giants, demons, or something else. What do you think would fit for those figs at the scale they are? Prefer DnD themes if you think Troll wouldnt work. Also, open to weird fantasy creatures as long as they fit the scale and are tall and wirey. These aren't for any game/encounter in particular, I just enjoy making stuff. L to R,
- WIP necromancer and ghouls I'd started scratchbuilding before they got shelved. Looking forward to getting back into those.
- Big guys in back are undecided
- An old barbarian conversion WIP from a reaper bones
- Recent child scratchbuild - My warg rider conversion WIP from a Reaper Bones (which has it's own post here)
- and I believe this was a Warhammer Chaos figure that I had added tentacles to an painted about a decade ago.
Need to know if someone can help me out. I have had to settle for making paper mini's for my DnD campaign until I can get some money together and start buying more mini's from reaper. I have a scale I use for smaller figures, but I need one I can use for bigger ones.
Does anyone know the measurement of 03137: Nor'Okk, Ettin minus the base. That way it will help me in scaling my minis for larger figures. Actually just need his height.
I was lining up my larger humanoids in a row and made an observation, relating to the new larger giants coming out (in Bones 3), mass, and CR (using 3.x D&D/Pathfinder rules). So I thought I'd share my thoughts. :)
It seems that for basic humanoids (without regeneration or other fancy rules that boost up their CR beyond their base mass) there's generally a fairly even progression. Which is there's a +1 to CR for every 5mm of mini height (1ft in game) beyond the base 28mm (5'7") mini size.
Based off CR added to any class levels.
+0 CR â‰ˆ 30mm (6ft.) Standard size for human mini
+1 CR â‰ˆ 35mm (7ft.) "Advanced" template Orc Boss (77064).
+2 CR â‰ˆ 40mm (8ft.) Bugbears (77015).
+3 CR â‰ˆ 45mm (9ft.) Ogres (77105). I'm assuming the Bones 3 Ogres will be about the same size.
+5 CR â‰ˆ 55mm (11ft.) Giant-kin (Bones 1 Fire/Frost Giants).
+7 CR â‰ˆ 65mm (13 ft.) Hill Giants (77313).
+8 CR â‰ˆ 70mm (14 ft.) Stone Giants (77336). Ya they're a bit lightly built but it roughly works.
+9 CR â‰ˆ 75mm (15 ft.) Frost Giants (Bones 3). This seems to be about how tall they'll be.
+10 CR â‰ˆ 75mm* (15 ft.) Fire Giants (Bones 3). *As they're so wide they're a bit shorter they otherwise would be.
So what do you think? If there's any merit to my line of thinking I hope we see some 85mm Cloud Giants (CR 11) and 95mm Storm Giants (CR 13) some time in the future. Bones 4?
