"GIANT MEEPLES! They ARE cool!"

They're BACK! and there's so many designs to choose from! But they won't be made without YOU!

What you see in the photos below are actual GIANT meeples. They are exactly like what you will be getting when you pledge to this project, except different colors and/or designs.

GIANT meeples were first made as a limited add-on for Dungeon Heroes to celebrate the meeples upgrade to the game. Well, literally the people have spoken. We've received numerous emails and requests for more GIANT meeples and so here's everyone's chance!

Whether you missed out on Dungeon Heroes, or just the GIANT meeples, or even if this is the first time you are hearing about them, welcome and we're glad you are here! 

Meeples just got EPIC!

If you are familiar with the Fantasy Gaming Figures project you will recognize these designs. Now, you can pick your favorite Heroes and Monsters to be scaled to EPIC proportions!

GIANT meeples are made of a heavy duty composite wood, cut with precision and painted. They range in size from 4 inches long or tall to over 8 inches long or tall. They weigh in from 1/4 pound to 3/4 pound and are almost an inch and a half THICK!

Also for you loving parents that want these for your kids, pledge with confidence! The paint used in 100% LEAD FREE and NON-TOXIC!

We don't have any of the originals Dungeon Heroes' GIANT meeples (seen in the photos) left. They were a limited production run and will never be made again. However, if it is a Dungeon Heroes design you are after than you are in luck! One of the stretch goals is a tribute to Dungeon Heroes and features all the designs from the base game as well as the 2 expansions in new and exciting colors! Check it out below.

I am be able to process larger quantities if you'd like to pledge for more than 10 GIANT meeples. You will need to email me your request at michael@gamelyngames.com

This is done in respect of the Kickstarter guideline that projects cannot offer rewards in bulk quantities (more than 10). Thanks for your understanding

So you've made it this far. Now the REAL fun begins! 

Below is the enormous gallery of GIANT meeple designs to choose from. Remember if you can't decide on just one, get two or three or more!

The designs are broken down into size brackets, there is no price difference between the sizes. One price fits all! This was done in effort to simplify the pledging process. The largest size meeples should be priced higher and the smallest sized ones less, but we met in the middle and tagged them all with the average price.

The colors shown in the gallery are preset. No color swapping.

Enjoy the gallery!

Nothing says YOU'RE a gamer like a GIANT classic meeple!

If enough people want these GIANT meeples we can unlock even more designs. 

With all the stretch goals unlocked this project will boast 66 designs to choose from!

What is Fantasy Frontier you may ask! 

It is a new and exciting game coming to Kickstarter on September 2nd from Gamelyn Games. 

It is an epic fantasy board game of airships and world discovery for 2 to 4 players. 

Cartologists and Cannoneers compete for the frontier! Each player controls a unique airship with a team of pioneers. Their mission is to scout the land, gather its resources and construct townships.

Using geographic pattern matching and tile placement, the players will develop a new world every time they play. Players compete to be the first to score a required number of points to win the game. They score points by building townships, completing geographic patterns and for aerial combat. 

The beautifully designed airship playing pieces are available here in GIANT size if unlocked! These are sure to make an impression in your gaming group!

Risks and challenges

The process of taking an idea and turning it into a product is not one for the faint of heart. It is long, complicated and prone to mistakes and oversights. We wouldn't recommend it to just anyone.

Having managed and delivered several successful Kickstarter projects we begin this journey again equipped with knowledge, experience and dedication. We have very recent and relevant experience having created and delivered GIANT meeples for Dungeon Heroes.

We will be using the same manufacturer we have all grown to love, Panda Games Manufacturing.

We will also be using the same distributor that has proven dedicated to timeliness and customer service, our friends at Game Salute.

That's not to say that this project won't experience mistakes, they happen to everyone but it does show that this road is familiar to all parties involved.

Common mistakes for the production of GIANT meeples consist of color matching and paint splatter issues, dings & dents, and delays in production and/or shipping. With these potential issues on our radar we will be diligent and thorough in minimizing their likeliness to occur.

Above all, we are dedicated to 100% backer communication. We will be transparent with our process, as to involve our backers as much as possible.

We will be present daily to answer any questions or read any comments and we will provide regular updates and supply photos of the progress when possible.

Thank you for your trust in us. Lets make some meeples!
