Nice work on the list, Paul.  I'm surprised that you can't find a centaur mini, though!

Paul's list is quite complete... The only one creature that looks a bit out of place is the Aleax (unless each mini is produced with its own exact replica  :D ).

I was just wondering who sculpted the giants?  Was it the same person who did the idol?

I have picked up several of Reaper's demon figures and found them to be quite useful, Paul:  you may want to check them out.

@ otherworld or EoC:  have you ever considered sculpting the Terrible Iron Golem from WG5, based on Easley's illustration?  That would be a very cool mini to own! :D

Yes, it was Paul Muller.

Ah, I didn't realize that you didn't sculpt the idol yourself, otherworld---sorry for the confusion....

Howdy All,


Just back from KC - saw the Dead Sea scrolls exhibit - waheyyy cool!

I edited my list a bit. If anyone has a lead on a proper mini for any of them post away!

I have all of the Reaper ones that match so far. I have yet to see a really good purple worm (9' in diameter) or a properly scaled giant slug.

I mean has anyone ever sculpted a purple worm miniature that is 2" diameter and 10" long? Reaper's most recent one, which lacks eyes, is only a sub-adult, being merely 1" or 5' in diameter. (The plastic one by Wizbro I have not seen in person so I can't comment on it's scale.)

It has to be the all time classic of titanic D&D creatures but it has never had a properly scaled miniature!

Also, I have never seen a giant slug, like the one that appears in the Monster Manual or in D1:

Image

Now those slugs are as big as houses! All the ones produced so far have only been as big as a horse at most.


Futures Bright,

Paul

Thanks, all, for your feedback and suggestions.  The Hill and Stone Giants will soon be available to buy, and I'll post details here as soon as I have them.  The Frost and Fire Giants will follow in around a month.  I haven't yet decided whether to complete the set and produce Cloud and Storm Giant figures.  What do you guys think?

My next project for May/June will be pig-faced Orcs, as per the artwork on the opening page of the Holmes Blue D&D and the MM1 illustration.  I don't know why nobody else (since Minifigs, Essex, Akheton) has made these.  GW have a lot to answer for!

The Hill Giant and Stone Giant are now available for sale here:



eBay listings



MDC have (again) done a cracking job of the casting, and the figures are a real pleasure to paint.

HILL GIANT

STONE GIANT



Future plans include a Frost Giant and a Fire Giant, but I'm not yet sure whether we'll do the Cloud and Storm Giants.  Also on the way is a small range of old-school D&D-style Pig-faced Orcs by Bob Olley.

The green for my new Frost Giant, again sculpted by Paul Muller.  He should be available in a couple of weeks (the Frost Giant, not Paul).

Absolutely, especially if you offer a "buy the set discount" for folks taking a beating in the dollar vs. the pound exchange rate :D

I recall some piggy orcs from back in the day, will have to go digging now to see if I ever bought any....

A series of golems, perhaps, to follow the giants?

I like the idea of the "pig faced" orcs. However, my vote is still for an MM Ogre Mage. Also think a Type V Demon might be cool.

And a succubus, Fraz-Urb'luu, Iggwilv, and Drelnza, of course :D

I'd definitely be interested in a set if there was a discount

:lol:

Seriously, I thought of the Type V because I don't think a mini has been done of that (if someone knows of one let me know). Actually, all of the Demons/Devils would be good choices. I know some are out there - of course Type VI/Balrogs can be found easily. Dark Heaven puts out several different demons and devils, including a few Demon Lords/Arch Devils.
