Maybe it was some sort of bureaucratic oversight on the part of the divine penitentiary system? Maybe the waning health and advanced age of the Giant's High King caused his children to begin their machinations to seize his power? Perhaps they were awakened by the coming of an even greater threat? Whatever the reason, the Giants have returned!
Ever since we made our second Troll back in 2013 I've wanted to do a project that is all huge-sized characters. I've daydreamed for years about the kinds of shenanigans that a party of trolls, giants, and ents would get up to: What would their motivations be? Who would dare take on a balanced party of huge-class creatures? What kind of force for good (or evil) could they become?
This project is our chance to find out! We're going to make a bunch of giants and stuff so we (...and um you too I guess) can create a ton of awesome epic encounters and adventures!
In addition to making new huge-sized creatures, we'll also be offering our previously made huge-sized miniatures. You'll be able to get all of these oldies through this project (or on our website during this campaign while supplies last) for their original kickstarter prices! You'll also be able to get a 20% discount on everything else in our store during this kickstarter campaign by entering the coupon code GIANTKICK during the campaign!
We've already created 7 Huge Adventurers through our previous projects, and we are planning to make even more through this project, some of which Mike has already begun sculpting!
They are, for the most part, trolls, full of personality and charm, but not all huge creatures are so friendly. The ancient race of giants is one of majesty and might. For centuries beyond counting, they have ruled the mountaintops, aloof and apart from the petty races that squabble below. The more majestic of these giants are proportionally closer to humans, but are still much bigger than your average 28mm figure! They will be the same 65mm to the eyes that the trolls have been.
The huge-sized miniatures above will all be produced by this Kickstarter if we meet the base goal, cast in urethane resin, and will be available as choices for any of the reward levels that include giants.
Unlocked companion miniatures will automatically accompany one of the huge miniatures.
Extra bases can be added for $2.00 each.
Companion miniatures unlocked will automatically accompany one of the huge miniatures.
When we hit $29,000, the Modron Paladin will automatically accompany the Troll Mechanist. This morning, I didn't even know what a modron was! It turns out, they are pretty awesome!
When we hit $33,000, the Enting Sprout will automatically accompany the Treant Shaman. Who said there were no more entings! (It was Treebeard, he was wrong!)
We hit $35,000! The Sporeling will automatically accompany the Giant Barbarian. Once he's put the guards to sleep, he and the Barbarian will creep out into the underdark, his bio-luminescent head lighting their perilous way.
When we hit $37,000, the Rust Beast will automatically accompany the Dire Owl. Dark Sun players, you guys are probably safe. Everyone else: just throw a wizard at it!
We hit $38,500! The Kobold Bard will automatically accompany (No pun intended!) the Storm Giant.
It's difficult to chase those sheep down by yourself! Take this Labrador Retriever! We hit $40,000 so the Labrador will automatically accompany the Hill Giant Rustler on all raids.
When we hit $45,000 (Either during the funding period or afterward through Paypal donations) the Giant Children will be added to the Completionist Rewards. When that happens, they will also be available as a $15 add-on for the group of 3. They will be cast in pewter and the biggest of them will be about the size of our Half-Orcs.

Risks and challenges
While we are fairly familiar with the process of sculpting and casting miniatures by now, there is still some small risk that our project will be significantly delayed by factors beyond our control. To mitigate this, we will be working with manufacturers that are here in the United States that we have worked with in the past.
We will do everything we can to make sure that the miniatures are to our bakers by the date indicated on the reward, but out highest priority in relation to the project is ensuring that the miniatures are of the highest possible quality.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
