Mighty fine mini

*****

The Rune Giant is one of my favorite minis. The detailing on it is amazing. The sword is especially cool to look and the details on the armor is also very impressive. This mini towers over others and, until Deskari came along, he was the biggest mini that Pathfinder had seen. He is very cool and could use a home. Be a good person and let this "little" fella into your home and heart, he'll keep out pesky adventurers!


Absolutely Gorgeous

*****

You're always kind of skeptical when you watch a company produce something for the first time. In the case of the Rune Giant, this miniature is Wizkid's first attempt to make a Gargantuan miniature. And when you grab this model, it really works. The paint job is absolutely gorgeous, the detail is incredible, and overall it is an excellent crown jewel to the Rise of the Runelords miniature set.

Now, there has been tons of comments on this miniature's leggings. For those of you who aren't caught up on the "discussion," basically, the miniature's leggings use a flesh tone, and if you look at the miniature from a mole's eye view (that is to say, from the bottom looking up) the miniature gives the impression that the Rune Giant is pantsless. I thought this was ridiculous reading the conversation, but now that I have the miniature in-hand I can confirm that its absolutely ridiculous. Sure, the tone is flesh-colored but would you make the same accusations of a lady wearing leggings? Of course not. The Rune Giant has ebon-black skin, so the idea that he is "pantsless" simply because his leggings are colored similar to a Caucasian's skin tone is laughable at the absolute best, and somewhat insulting at its worst. I can't see anyone with more maturity then a 12 year old making that claim about this miniature personally, but that's merely my own opinion on the topic and it certainly shouldn't stop you from owning the crown jewel of this miniatures set.

Most Impressive

****( )

Pathfinder's first Garantuan miniature is quite a good start.
The detail on the figure is amazing. Its face is very intimidating and the runes along its arms are great. My only gripe is that it's pants are a flesh tone and look like bare legs despite being grey from the waist up.

D&D used square bases claiming that a round base on a gargantuan mini would leave the corner squares exposed. Though that is partially the case the mini's base takes up enough to make it clear that is part of the giant's space.

Another thing I love is the size of the box its stored in. The sword is removable so it all fits in a surprisingly small box unlike D&D Gargantuan figures. It definitly helps with mini storage space.


One to rule them all...

*****

Got mine today.
The sculpt is awesome, resulting in a cool, intimidating pose towering over my other minis, making the black dragon look rather tiny.
I also like that the paint job leaves the "mini" matt and I'm not bothered by the light-colored pants.
I was surprised though, that the blade of the sword was extra.


Huge

*****

Got mine, it's awesome. The qaulity of the details is awesome, from the sneer of his face to the carvings in the sword! Currently, it reings over my other figures, trying to decapitate Green Goblin.

^^And I don't think it's missing any paintjob on the legs, look to the
picture above.
