Stonehaven's Giants

Recommended Posts

E-mail sent and my package arrived. Great packing and no damage. Very pleased with them. The dire owl looks a little weird I think but that's the only one that I was scratching my head at. the Storm Giant was a missed opportunity as he should be the biggest of the big and is far from it.

 

The winter wolf? Oh momma! That's a fantastically huge beast.  I might have to get another.


As I didn't back Completionist, I hadn't noticed the oddity of the Dire Owl until you posted your unboxing on Facebook.

I'm hoping they get to follow up on this...we could still use a Stone Giant to finish off the classics!

Got mine today.

 

The Cloud Giant is a bit more 'blocky' than I expected, but yeah, I like it.  There's MEAT on them bones!

 

The Wolf Lord is good, but... the piece of resin between the shaft of his weapon and his chest is... aggravating. 

On this size miniature it's just too obvious! 

This is going to take a lot of whittling...   

 

Casting quality is pretty good, though, and packaging is top notch.

Yeah, the cloud giant is an interesting one. I'm not sure if it's a rushed sculpt or a conscious style thing... I think it's pretty cool, but man, that is a huge amount of undifferentiated cloth to paint!

 

We got ours a few days ago and I'm inventorying them now. That owl is strange. I was not expecting the tiny little mantis-limbs in its chest. (Edit: I should note, they were there in the original art! I just wasn't looking for them, so I didn't see them. I didn't realize just how much of an arthropod the "dire owl" actually was.)

 

One of the strong suits of Stonehaven has always been their support for unusual races, and this was no exception. The kobold bard is wonderful and the gripplis are welcome additions.

 

The engineering on the gnomish titan is fantastic--if you look in the joints it actually looks as though someone took a few minutes to think about what combination of pistons and the like could result in this thing actually moving, as opposed to just jamming some gears and a joint in there and calling it a day. It's a pleasant surprise and I was looking forward to the piece already. It speaks well to Mike and, I suppose, the gnome pilot.

 

Speaking of gnomes, the gnome fits in the titan quite well--although I got a bit ahead of myself on that one and trimmed off her pseudo-slotta-base to see if she fit. Now I have to figure out some way to mount her temporarily while I paint her.

Canada Customs are crazy.  I was do a miniature trade of D&D pre-paints, and they inspected the package...replacing a Beholder Lich with a set of shoelaces from another package.  The fellow was quite understanding, and next time we traded, I included a note to customs with a list of what was in the package and to please not put shoelaces in the package instead.  Apparently they responded with a written apology before sending it along to the other fellow, proving every polite Canadian stereotype true.

I hope you get your package soon!

Wow, that's pretty bizarre.....hope they were nice shoelaces :)

 

I'm not overly surprised at the delivery time yet.  Another week or so and I'll start to get concerned.  Was just hopeful yesterday when my wife said I had a package, but it was my secret Sophie package instead (which I've refrained from opening...so far....).

Got mine in the same box with the adventurers. Was really confused at first. :)


The adventurers and "minions" were in such small bags in mine, I thought they had been forgotten!

In addition to a stone giant, perhaps they could do a turtle without the saddle? That one received a lot of likes on my timeline when I posted.

 

And in addition to the elemental of earth, perhaps a fire, air, and water version?

Got my package in as well.

 

Really love em with one exception. The treant is significantly smaller then I expected and feels really small for the huge base.

 

Good stuff. :)

      Giant Tortoise from Stonehaven Miniatures. I have more of their stuff than any company except Reaper. They are actually running a kickstarter right now (in case anyone is interested).
    • By Lidless Eye
      Another fun one from Stonehaven, with some of my favorite rarities: female Goblins and Orcs!

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/stonehavenmini/stonehaven-adventurers-2020?ref=user_menu
       
      Story
      “Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play.” – Jane Goodall
      There are doors a hulking orc warrior can bash open in a single blow that would take a party of kobolds a month to chisel through and there are priceless artifacts that a goblin catburglar can swipe without a sound that an army of dwarves would have a great deal of trouble acquiring. Our differences make us strong.
      With the Stonehaven Adventurers 2020 project, we are creating a variety of adventuring parties. Some will include variations of a single fantasy race, others will be a mix of different fantasy races. The parties will not all include the same number of miniatures becuase of the difference in the cost of production due to size, and not all of the parties will be included in the Core Set. Some are only available as add-ons.
      The miniatures will be made in the USA. They will be cast in 100% lead free pewter (or polyurethane resin in the case of the dragon) and some assembly will be required. They will be sculpted on the standard 28 mm scale. Slotted round bases will be included with miniatures that are pictured on round bases.
      And now we present the Core Set:
      Pictured from top to bottom, left to right: Grippli Warrior, Grippli Samurai, Kobold Archer,  Half-Dragon Wizard, Pygmy Lizardfolk Rogue
      Cold Blood Clan! Though they come from disparate backgrounds, these heroes have been bound together by cruel circumstance. Finding themselves aboard a prison vessel bound for the quicksilver mines, they combined their strengths, made their escape,  and discovered that they weren't so different after all. (Want another one?Add-on cost: $25)
      Pictured from top to bottom, left to right: Male Human Hedgemage, Male Human Thief, Male Human Dagger Hobo, Male Half-Elf Fighter, Female Half-Elf Swashbuckler
      These scavengers follow the great armies, stealing gear, treasure, and other supplies from the casualties of war. They are not above creating a few extra casualties in order to "find" a few more treasures! (Want another one? Add-on cost: $25)
        Pictured from top to bottom, left to right: Male Human Blademaster, Female Human Monk, Male Human Monk, Male Human Bard, Male Human Jester
      Lord Rhatagon's players travel from town to town, performing for the peasants and generally distracting from the privations of peasant life. Each has their own past that they are running from, but none moreso than Rhatagon himself, who travels with his minstrels seeking to rebuild the honor of his house. (Want another one? Add-on cost: $25)
          Pictured from left to right, top to bottom: Male Goblin Necromancer, Male Goblin Monk, Female Goblin Witch, Male Goblin Warrior (Locked), Female Goblin Rogue, Female Goblin Ranger (Locked)
      Goblins seldom get the chance to determine their own destinies. They are the pawns of greater powers and are seen as vermin by the "civilized" races. But just as men can surely be evil, goblins can surely be good. (Want another one? Add-on cost: $25)
      Pictured from left to right, top to bottom: Male Tengu Rogue, Male Dwarven Cleric, Male Halfling Trickster, Male Dwarven Guard, Male Tiefling Geomancer
      The Doublecreek Watch has had its hands full lately with escaped convicts, charlatans, and would-be heroes running around stirring up trouble! It's going to be one zany adventure, culminating in the wacky awakening of ancient horrors! (Want another one? Add-on cost: $25)
      In addition to the Core Set, we've got some other stuff that is only available as add-ons. This is that stuff!
        Pictured from top to bottom, left to right: Male Orc Fighter, Female Orc Cleric, Female Orc Archer, Male Orc Wizard, Male Orc Warrior
      The massive mountain Orcs have formed an uneasy alliance with the mountain queen. Orc warriors, once feared and killed on sight, are now commonplace among the caravan guards and mercenary companies that come down from the northern steppes. (Add-on cost: $37)
      The Mushroom Folk have lived under the dark trees for as long as time has been counted. Mercurial creatures, they can change their form to best suit the needs of the coming day. Although many will prefer to maintain a single form, others will change form each night: from simple form to warrior form, or from spore form to mage form. Each form has its strengths and drawbacks.
      The Mushroom Folk have interchangeable parts and can be assembled into thousands of different combinations. 
      Add-on: Mushroom Folk Subset A  (Add-on cost: $25)
      Add-on: Mushroom Folk Subset B  (Add-on cost: $25)
      Add-on: Mushroom Folk Subset C  (Add-on cost: $25)
      Add-on: Mushroom Folk Subset D  (Add-on cost: $25)
      Mushroom folk unlocked by stretch goals will be added to the Mushroom Folk Set.
      The Reclining Dragon rests comfortably on your tabletop, awaiting delicious adventurers to walk into its jaws. Or you could barter with it, or whatever, he's pretty chill that way! 
      This dragon is big! It measures 105mm across and will be cast in polyurethane resin. The wings come unattached. (Add-on cost: $25)
      As we hit these stretch goals, more miniatures will be added to the Core Set, Mushroom Set, and/or made available as add-ons!
      First up:
      When we reach $12,000, Cyragnome the gnomish swashbuckler will be added to the Core Set. He will also be available as a $4 add-on. Cyragnome is a fearless fighter with a flair for the dramatic. Many a bandit has had his knees bloodied by Cyragnome's flashing blade!
      When we reach $14,500 the Male Goblin Warrior will be unlocked and added to the Otker and the Mob adventuring party in the Core Set. He will also be available as a $4 add-on. Goblin warriors are fearless in battle. Often facing much larger foes, they often triumph through a combination of lucky crits and really bad attack rolls from lvl 1 adventurers!
      When we reach $17,000 the Female Goblin Ranger will be unlocked and added to the Otker and the Mob adventuring party in the Core Set. She will also be available as a $4 add-on. Ricochet the goblin ranger got her nickname by bouncing a bolt off a guard's shield and into another guard's exposed back. 
      Once these goals are reached, we will introduce new ones!
      Wow! You scrolled so far! Thanks for taking the time you check out our project; you are the best!

      I painted this guy up for D&D to be my Warlock. Sadly it may be some time before he fills that role again. Photos still look a bit washed out. :( The Base should look like floorboards and they do in person.

      Fe fi fo fum, here come the Giants!
       
      Ignore the bases, they are temporary until the Sons of Behemat codex releases and I know what I can proxy them as.
       
      First up we have Devin Townsend...er, the Kings of War Giant.
       
       
      Then the former Otherworld Giant, now produced by Crooked Dice Games.
       

       
      And a very iconic piece of loot:

      I've had this one in the works for a while. She's a little more cheerful and Art Noveau than most of the rest of my Miskatonic staff, but that's okay! Misk.U. cultivates eccentrics of all types. She seems to be handling the job just fine. And those pointed ears indicate she's already survived a brush with chaos, or perhaps has a little bit of eldritch in her. 
       

       

       

       

       
      Her colleagues are a Stonehaven halfling librarian and a Black Cat librarian/cultist. Gave them both a minor touch-up for this shoot.
