New Cloud giant for upcoming Reaper mystery project

We're getting kind of off topic and rehashing something that happened a couple years ago, aren't we?

Probably best to just get back to the actual topic - this new giant mini and if the 'mystery project' is confirmed to be Bones 5

 

True. Gratitude for the reminder.

 

When will this figure be available?

If Kickstarter, that means 2+ years correct? 

 

Seems an lengthy time to tease a figure. Could there be a different release instead of another Kickstarter?

Yephima has long been one of my favorite giant sculpts, and I really like the new version. Will be an instant buy as soon as she hits the store.

Zero hesitations will be given. :winkthumbs:

Reapers teased a few minis before kickstarters before.

One question.

 

I own the former version and will pick up the new one when it is available for sure.

 

But, I'm not a gamer and paint for fun and display.

As such I do not always recognize certain things that are obvious to a D&D player.

 

So..here it is.

What is that weapon supposed to be and what is it capable of?

I, for one, am excited for a storm giant big enough to actually represent a storm giant in 5e. They are supposed to tower over even giants - and the old ones are no taller than any other giants in their gen.

It's a fancy club. Probably capable of spluching your enemies, but I'd have to ask Hubby about the stats he'd give it.

I'd say, in D&D terms, it'd probably be a maul

If my players ever go to Xendrik and face Yephima, they will be dismayed to learn it is a size Gargantuan greatclub... Which can be animated as a Caryatid Column wielding a size Huge greatclub.

 

...if I'm really mean, Yephima herself will have levels in rogue, so she can set up sneak attack slams when flanking with her animated club.

 

Basically, my players should never want to tangle with the non-cursed giants of Xendrik. Talking will yield more positive results in most cases.

So it is a club and only look like a cloud?

I mean, it is not a magical encased stormcloud or something?

The way it's sculpted, it's a fairly standard weight-on-a-stick with some fancy carving.

 

I could easily justify it as a maul (big hammer), a morningstar, or a greatclub. Cloud Giants come standard with a morningstar, so that could be a good option.

 

If I stat the wielder as a magic-user, I could also see the weapon as a magic staff of some kind.

 

I could see painting up the head of the weapon as a captured storm, maybe the weapon can generate wind or lightning. Given the natural rock-throwing abilities of giants, maybe the head of the weapon can be detached and thrown, with an electric fireball effect where it hits, kind of a thunderstorm grenade.

 

Bottom line, it does...stuff. Cool, dangerous stuff.

Thinking about the head of the club being detachable, I also love the idea that there's a giant stadium somewhere with a whole lot of this club in a locker room, and a stockpile of clubheads... And a group of PCs might stumble into a crowd of cloud giants playing jai-alai.
