The greatest servants of the almighty Runelords march into your campaign in the form of the Rune Giant, the amazing new promotional "miniature" for the Pathfinder Battles: Rise of the Runelords set! Based on original cover art by fantasy master-painter Wayne Reynolds, this hulking figure towers over even the largest Pathfinder Battles miniatures released to date!

The massive Rune Giant stands over 7 inches tall on a 4-inch base, the first Gargantuan miniature ever produced for the Pathfinder Battles line. Produced in extremely limited quantities as a premium for customers who preorder a Standard Case of Rise of the Runelords miniatures, the Rune Giant is available only as long as supplies last!

Note: This product is part of the Pathfinder Battles Case Subscription.

Do we 75% off of 2 if we get the case bundle or just 1?

One per standard case. There's no link between the Huge case and the premium.

RPG Superstar 2008 Top 32

You get 75% percent off the Rune Giant for figures purchased in your subscription, which you can manage from you My Subscriptions page.

You can get up to one Rune Giant for every Standard Case you order (and thus one for each Case Bundle).


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Card Game, Pawns Subscriber

Just to clarify...I've set my subscription to have one Premium figure automatically included with by case purchase. So, one Rune Giant will automatically be included with my order. Correct?

Does anyone know the height of the Rune Giant (to the top of the head)?

I estimate it to be 5' and 3/8" tall at that point.

This is a seriously stunning figure.

Andoran

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

The Bestiary 2 says they're 40' tall.

Cheliax

Is this available for purchase by us regular non-case ordering peoples? This is the only one I really wish to purchase.

If not, is there a rough idea when I can order this? Or will it be available only to subscribers?

Andoran

What a great figure. The flowing robes, the musculature, the expression. It is more than just a scaled up humanoid miniature, it feels as imposing as it should. Other than the uncomfortably caucasian tone to his pants, I have nothing but love for my rune giant.

I agree 100% on this remark

Andoran

I don't understand the problem with the color of his pants.

Andoran

Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

They look too human-flesh toned. Like he has no pants.

As a case promo you need to buy a case in order to purchase the Rune Giant. It will not be available otherwise period. If you just wish to buy the Rune Giant your best bet is to be lucky enough to purchase one at a FLGS if they will let you.

At the moment, it is only available to subscribers. It will be available to non subscribers in the following circumstances

1) When Paizo run out of cases, meaning they can't start a subscription from here.
2) Once Shattered Star releases in January, and RotRL is no longer a valid point to start the subscription

Obviously if they run out of Rune Giants before then, you won't be able to buy them. Other sites & stores have different criteria for allowing sales of this, so you might want to shop around.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Card Game, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

You’ll most likely be able to buy the Rune Giant separately a couple of months down the road at your local FLGS or online. I know they sell the Black Dragon (the first promo) at my closest FLGS and you can find them online.

Unless the print run was less with the Rune Giant than the Black Dragon, you will probably be able to find them later, as well. However, don’t be surprised if the price is higher.

Finally, you will probably be able to find the Rune Giant now on ebay, but expect to pay a premium price for it.

When I walked into my FLGS on Friday they had a couple of Rune Giants for sale sitting on the counter.

When I walked out they only had one :-)

Thanks folks. Time to hit up the local.

Well, there are of course exceptions. But I think most FLGS only sell it with a booster case. I know my FLGS has it set up that way.

All the stores in the Twin Cite MN, has them for sale as a separate figure.. at least the ones ACTUALLY selling the actual miniatures line :)

Which ones? I will hit Tower Games on Saturday. I really do not want to visit the Source if necessary. Also, does Fantasy Flight have any to sell?

Lastly, anywhere else?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber

I got mine at the Source, when I looked Tower didn't have any yet, but that was last Friday.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Maps, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Leg o' Lamb, Tower Games is supposed to have them but you might want to call ahead to find out if they have them in as of yet and or if they have any Rune Giants available. The Source is pretty good about it though. Not sure if you just have a general problem with The Source or it is just to far to drive but they also do ship too.

I also know of a place in Chicago that will ship to you too and would likely sell a Rune Giant to you?

Cheliax

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Card Game, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I'll be at Tower regardless on Saturday fer PFS. A Rune Giant is frosting on the Sea Witch cake.

Greetings Catprog,

I just reviewed your shipment and it looks like your package containing your Rune Giant was shipped from our facility on the 30th of last month with an estimated arrival time of 6 to 10 business days. Since it left our warehouse 8 business days have passed, so your package should still be arriving some time in the near future.

While I suspect you should be seeing your package soon, if it still has not arrived by the end of next week make sure to let me know via email at customer.service@paizo.com and I'll assist you further at that time.

Thanks!
- Erik K

The package did arrive, it just didn't have the rune giant. But on the customer service forum they are going to send a replacement with my next subscription shipment. Thank you for the service.

Just got mine, and I have to agree, the Rune Giant does appear to be a True Scotsman. I'm going to have to paint over that, or I'll never hear the end of it when this thing hits the table.

You do realize the rune giant has blue/green/gray skin? He's wearing pants.

Andoran

It doesn't look like pants.

Andoran

So what does it look like on your rune giant, then?

Yes. You do realize that skin-tight Caucasian-flesh-colored pants look like Caucasian flesh? It was a poor color choice.

EDIT: This could be a painter's mistake. Some might have the tan/beige pants as the figure in the photo. But mine is clearly a flesh tone.

I guess that since he had blue skin, i assumed he was wearing human flesh for pants, not that he was naked.

Try playing it at your game table, all I'm saying.

I've already shown my players; none of them said "oh my gosh, he's not wearing any pants"! In fact, all of them pretty much said "holy crap, how the hell are we going to kill that"?

Even with upper body his skin-tone, half the figure is that Caucasian flesh colour, and his pants are tight enough to be mistake for skin. It isn't like I see his legs and think "naked white guy", only that I have only ever seen the paint WizKids chose used as flesh tone, making the rune giant look a bit like a pencil salesman.

Out of the several dozen people I have shown this too, only about 1-2 made the comment about the pants and that was that it looked like he had none on but that being his skin was different above that he was wearing pants. That was all that was said.

So believe it or not I just think your friends are just unfashionably immature instead of the fashionably mature.

Well, I just took it out of the box and no one else I know has seen it yet, but if any of my friends do call attention to the poor color choice, I will tell them that you think they're immature.

If it bugs you, splash some other color on it. No big deal. In fact, if you do it well, you will have a one of a kind. ;-)

Yeah, that was already my plan. Looking at my paints now to pick a color. This might merit a trip to the hobby shop.

Glad to be of help. You were the one that mentioned the maturity level... I just expanded upon it. So if you think that it might do them some good.. by all means. No offense was intended but then again not sure what you motives were. BTW my end it was just more or less a clever turn of words. :)

Nah, I was just making silly gamer jokes.

Andoran

Put me in the "WOAH, this giant has no pants!" club. It's rather jarring how fleshy it is. It looks nothing like pants coloring to me, even with the dark skin tones above.

Has anyone done a recolor on the pants yet? I plan to but now I'm looking for some color inspirations.

The fleshy tone of the pants stood out to me as well. I assumed I had gotten a defective paint job, until I saw that they're all the same, and also match the art depicted in the bestiary and the Rise of the Runelord volumes.

So I slapped some paint on mine: Rune Giant repaint

The color I used is GW's Scorched Brown, which nearly matches the brown tones in their boots and kneepads perfectly.

I have been contemplating adding a stitching effect to them. Then I can say "yeah it's flesh, human flesh" helps add to the creepy vibe.

Andoran

I like that, Kris. It flows nicely and makes the kilt pop.
