Sorry everybody for being that guy but I haven't been really paying attention to this since the campaign closed.  I am wondering when does to the PM close?

 

 

 

December 1st, supposedly.

 

Thou, all points are saying this will be the final time Reaper keeps it open.

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?

It will be after all KS backers have received their pledges but not before all of the minis are out for retail sale.  Bones 4 are not all out yet.

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.

      Came across this on Kickstarter.
      It's a solo journaling RPG (A new to me concept), that just sounds rather interesting.
       
      The Kickstarter itself is for the Roomlands expansion but the original Colostle book is also available.

      Interesting Kickstarter for resin minis based on the Mork Borg setting (Nothing something I've heard of, but I barely know anything about RPGs):-
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/westfaliaminiatures/mork-borg-miniatures
       
      Also not a company I've heard of before, but they do seem to have a pretty solid track record.
       

       
      What is it about this week and Kickstarters for weird minis? On top of this one there's Coven launching on Saturday too, I'm supposed to be getting out of this whole Kickstarting malarkey!
