something i drew many many many years ago   seems fitting

I totally agree with you in that those particular exaggerations are not very realistic in function. This was a challenging character/figure to create because I wanted her to read as feminine but als

And the Storm Giants are one of the few who I prefer the WizKids scaling!  Aw.

 

ya i wish reaper would follow the wizkids/gf9 scaling since wizkids/gf9 have the official license. so why not have giants match that size.  many people who use reaper minis are using them for D&D afterall :D

About the only thing that has a slight interest right now is the villagers, but considering I didn't download the new Fat Dragon Kickstarter reward villagers until today, I kinda don't need em right now.

 

If Reaper had put more bases like they were going to, I may have gotten those but they had the sizes I really wanted. I may grab a couple more as I can always use bases for D&D.

It would be nice but again Reaper isn't Paizo or WoTC. Thou allot of past offerings were ideal for those rpgs & it was convenient as well.

He looks a lot taller to me (Sir Forscale seems to hinder me, rather than help, in judging how big things are).

 

If he's only as big as the newer Frost Giants, that's a good thing (to me at least).

Interesting that you mentioned Bones 6. I'm curious if there is a time of year or annual days i should be looking (and preparing to have my paycheck garnered) for the next Bones KS?  I have only recently found this gem that is Bones Releases, and want to stay on top of it.  I was a late join this time, but DO NOT want to be late to this party next time.  Anyone know of i can have any expectations or timeframe?

No date, or timeframe that I'm aware of, but as others have mentioned, it'll be sometime after the completion of Bones 5. Keep an eye on the forums/whatever other social media you desire; they'll make an announcement about it for certain.

Reposting a photoshop I did last year, due to the inquiry about the Storm Giant size. This was using a photo of the 3D print Reaper had on display at ReaperCon 2019.

If they altered the size between then and now (no indication they did so), then this might not be right. But based upon all current info, I believe it to be true.

It even matches info from the pic with Sir Forscale. Garrick the Bold is almost exactly 2” high at the tip of his sword. That puts the bottom of the giant’s knee pad at approximately 2”.  That’s what is shown in my photoshop (use the yellow ruler on the right; it is closer to in-line, depth-wise, with the placement of the scaled mini’s).

It’s at least a fair approximation, given the info we have.

I actually don't mind the difference. It varies the giant mini vs all giants of a certain type are the same height. I also think the Wizkids one is suppose to be King Hectaton (or however it's spelled) from Storm King's Thunder. I can see him being bigger then other storm giants.

      Wellcome to our biggest miniatures ever! Blood and Skulls ork rider is the largest and more detailed miniature in 70 mm scale that Nocturna models released in all of these years. This project is really monstruous and we need your help to fund it.
      Take a look at all the figures in the campaign, all of them are in 70 mm scale. Blood and Skulls is 28 cm high!
        28 cm total size

      I've bought everything this company has put out so far.  I'll probably pick up these two as well.  Really great figures based on classic artwork.
       
      These two are both nude, so I can't show pictures here!

      "The muses" is a range of miniatures offered by Golem Miniatures.
      These 80 mm scale figures, in limited edition, will all come from realistic and oriental paintings of great painters of the nineteenth, a period that we greatly love.
      During the fourth campaign "The muses", we had suggested that you submit ideas for the next muses. A vote had then been put in place to decide between the 27 muses that you had selected.
      One muse dominated this vote: "La boîte à bijoux" painted by Guillaume Seignac.
      To accompany it, a second muse has been chosen on the same theme: "human skin on animal skin". You will discover it below, hoping she inspires you! :)
       
      During the third Muses campaign, we produced the magnificent Lady Godiva painted by John Collier, a famous English painter and one of the founders of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters.
      Here is another of his works: "Lilith" painted in 1889.
      Lilith is a mythical Hebrew and Biblical figure (Adam's first wife), whom some see as the very first portrayal of feminism in history.

      I'm Adam Sadler, senior game designer at Blacklist Games, and I love miniatures. They are what got my brother Brady and me into the hobby back when we were teenagers. Whether we’re using them in roleplaying games, board games, or tabletop miniatures games, we love collecting, assembling, painting, and playing with them. While Blacklist Games has published several of our games that feature miniatures, they saw our passion could be used for the creation of a new division that would focus solely on miniatures and allow for company growth in parallel with creating great board games. With everyone at the company excited about the possibility of this new division, here we are to share it with you!
      Blacklist Miniatures will focus entirely on producing high quality, highly detailed, pre-assembled plastic miniatures to be used in any type of game. Blacklist Miniatures: Fantasy Series 1, our first miniatures line, is not only a celebration of our love for miniatures, but also of all things fantasy.
      With your support, this campaign will not only bring this project to life, but also open the door to other lines of miniatures in various genres and even new games to utilize them!

      First time posting a KS thread.  Tribality is releasing a companion book to their previous KS "Seas of Vodari."  I thoroughly enjoyed the previous book and have been looking forward to this one.
      As this is the first time I'm posting a KS thread, please feel free to let me know if I'm doing anything wrong.

      I think that's enough for context.  The rest can be found on the KS page.
