Hello there! I'm new to the world of Reaper Bones. I don't usually buy unpainted mini, let alone unpainted minis which require assembly but the Khanjira The World Breaker and the C'thulhu minis were something I couldn't walk away from. I'm a Call of Cthulhu fanboy, I have always wanted to use him in an D&D campaign and never thought my Horrorclix Mighty Cthulhu fit the bill, especially with the stagnant form of him rising up out of the ocean. I also plan on using Khanjira The World Breaker  as the Tarrasque.

 

The Tarrasque is a gargantuan creature. What size round base would I use for that? Would 160mm work? I also assume Cthulhu would be gargantuan, I have always pictured him being collassal sized but the Reaper Bones mini doesn't reflect that size scale so perhaps he'd be more a Starspawn or aspect of Cthulhu? Meh, who cares? I'm HAPPY with the two pieces and looking forward to painting them as I couldn't wait to assemble them! 

 

But any help and advice about base size would be quite useful, thank you!

160mm sounds right for Khanjira/Tarrasque (fun fact:  Tarrasque is based off the *real* Tarasque of Provence, France!).  Easy way to figure would be to measure the longest dimension of his built-in base and use that as they base diameter.  I think a 120 or even 100 might work for Cthulhu.

Based on D&D 3.5 (I don't currently play 5th or PF, so I'm not sure how/if the larger sizes changed), huge is a 3" base (76ish mm), gargantuan is a 4" base (105 mm) and colossal is 6" or more (152+ mm).

 

All that said, my garg minis, including Reaper's Cthulhu, are mostly based on CDs, so 120mm / not quite 5". Cthulhu could fit on a smaller base, but the built in base on mine was a little bendy, so I like the slightly oversized base for stability.

 

My colossals are based on wooden plaques (picked up fairly cheaply at Michael's) of whatever size best fits the mini. I don't have Khanjira, but it looks like a 6" or 7" plaque would do the trick just fine.

 

Which is all to say, I agree with BLZeebub's assessment.

      Before the known ages, the ancient gods, who were traveling through time and space, between galaxies and systems, between planets and moons, finally reached this small blue planet and its light gray moon. Millions of years ago, searching for the force on the dark side of this moon, they found the crystals that emitted enormous energy.
       
      They took it with them and returned to the blue planet. With the use of the power from other dimensions they try to warp the crystal and use it for their own dark plans.
      It quickly turned out that the crystal emitted too much power, a power that did not harmonize with the forces of the Ancient One. The symbiosis caused conflict and damage to the ancients. The warped crystal had been abandoned by them here... and for millions of years, it had lain, covered by layers of earth and sand in the darkness and silence...

      Hi.
      Greetings from Andrzej (Ater), Jakub (MiniaturesArtTeam), and Pawel  (PJG_sculptor). For some time we were working together on something on the side which finally became a big miniature project. We plan to put it together in a board-battle game!
       
      But let's take small steps and start gently. In our first project, we want to offer you some miniatures from the world which were shown to us in the dreams by one guy, who calls himself Cthulhu (we know... it is quite weird, but the dreams were really cool).
       
      Inspired by these visions, we create a new universe in the dark, steampunk/dieselpunk climate. Now we want to show you our project and we cordially invite you not only to participate in the project itself but also to create it. Please, share your thoughts and opinions with us! Please come closer, sit down and hear a story about the Crystocracy.

      I was a little surprised to not see this already here.  I just got a 48 hour notification on a game called "Lurkers of the Deep" - it's apparently an expansion to a miniatures game, but in addition to the game they're also selling a bunch of 20s/30s pulp/cthulhu style minis.  (And a number of buildings, too.)  I'm not interested in the game, but I put down a 30 pound pledge to get a bunch of the figures and get the various free stretch goals figures.
       
      There's only another 46 or so hours left, so I guess that means it ends early on March 1st.

      Project funded in less than a half hour, and has already attained the first stretch goal.

      Here's my version of Reaper's Dark Young for all you Cthulhu fans out there, though for me it is a Portal of Despair from my Swampstalkers army :)
