Hi there,

 

Just ordered the 3 D&D 5th edition corebooks and notice something in the free basic rules: Fire Giant, Frost Giant and Hill Giant are now "Huge" monsters instead of large.

 

So, do you guys know any nice miniature of these three giant types that fits the 28mm scale? DDM has nice frost and fire giants (including one really similar to PHB's cover) but they are all large size.

 

It doesn't matter if it's plastic, metal or resin.

 

Thanks!

Didn't someone somewhere have a photo comparing sizes of various brands of giant mini?

 

Meanwhile, here's a WIP thread of some giants I am working on, identified:

EDIT: The paint bottle is one inch wide and three inches high, to give some scale.

I don't really like Bones fire, frost and hill giants. IMO they have extremely large fists and weapons even for their size. But thanks anyway!

 

Don't get me wrong, I am a Bones backer and I do like the male storm giant and the Ettin for example.

 

Pingo, both "Frorigh, Frost Giant" and the Otherworld Frost Giant looks more like the style i want! And are probably closer to the Huge size scale.

Wiz kids official mini line for 5 ed might be your best bet for the new sizes. Not sure of the street date thou. Miniature market.com has singles for pre order. They got pics for everything.

      Good Friday everyone, I just took some pictures of the 02479, Ettin I completed last night. This is a Dark Heaven Legends metal model that was sculpted by Jason Wiebe. It stand on a 50mm base and I painted it with Reaper MSP paint. Coincidently, I was delighted to see the amazing upcoming two-headed Troll also sculpted by Jason Wiebe that was announced last night during Reaper Live #117 on Twitch. (see the image under spoiler and the end of the post).

      So here's another miniature from the days gone by, a Julie Guthrie Female Giant, originally in her All Things Dark and Dangerous line.  This is apparently version two of the miniature.  The first one I painted maybe a year or so ago, a more primitive looking hill giant lady, who has always been one of my favorite figures Julie has sculpted along with her female centaur

      Anyhoos, here she is:
       

       
      and then afterwards a comparison photo so you can see her against one of her contemporaries, a female mage:
       

       
      once again, color choice was so hard and I have no idea where the inspiration for purple hair came from. I think it was due to the fact that she wasn't a earth-tone hill giant, but a little more civilized. And we all know most civilized women have purple hair. 
       
      Anyhows, hope you enjoy!

      Another result from my 4th of July Paint Binge. A couple of creepy crawlies for the players to encounter down an old mine shaft:

      For your consideration I present my take on the Golan, Hill Giant. This was painted by me as part of a contest for a Twitch streamer I follow. The challenge was to push your boundaries and do something you had never done before. I chose this model because I had never worked on something with this much skin before and I really needed to practice my skin tones. I went with a more earthy look in the color pallet and am pretty happy with how it turned out. C&C welcome

      with a miniature from NonSenseminiatures, the Barbarian, I buyed the

      I asked some help to NonSense and he already made a base coat for me, I 
      would like to get some help for painting because I see too much 
      information and don't know were begin.
      I already make painting but totally different
      Also he gave for me a discount code Katerina10%, because he will sell my 
      paints also!!!
