Would anyone else be interested in a Gargantuan Box? so far all the boxes have been missing gargantuan pawns so it got me thinking, am i the only one willing to pay for a gargantuan set with all the gargantuan pawns that are missing from the other boxes?

P.S it wold also be nice if it included all the missing dinosaurs


Are you talking about doing all new gargantuan creatures, or just a box that has all the gargantuan models already released?
I think they have done a blue, green, white, and skeletal dragons plus a rune giant.


There is an economical problem with producing larger than huge size bases as far as i remember, whih is why there are no gargantuan and colossal pawns.

Nawtyit you are thinking about plastic models, Biztak is talking about cardboard Pawns.


I recall it as a cost issue as well, but with the cardstock size. Since number of pawn sheets is the biggest cost contributer to pawns sets.

I would like gargantuan and colossal bases, with the pawns being same size as huge creatures... or just the bases and I can use huge sized dragons and what not for pawns.

I have other wishes for pawns sets before this - encounter sets: like a goblin war camp, or an orc band of mercenaries, or a small town. With warriors and civilians and a map and a description book with groups and NPCs.

But if they make it, I will buy it...

Oh i love it. You could spend one or two sheets on each race and just make a small community of pawns each.

A cardboard sheet can be suported by two huge bases one in each inferior corner same would apply for gargantuan pawns

I definitely want some pawns in the Gargantuan and Colossal categories, but I will leave it up to the bean counters to decide whether the pawns themselves should be that large, or just the bases.


Hey, I can stick a Gargantuan pawn in a Huge base. I just want the creature pawn.


I would buy a gargatuan monsters box.

I have a feeling it would be hard to get more than 2 to a sheet for gargantuan (1 definitely for a colossal). I'd like to have them though.

Such a large flat pawn would be all kinds of awkward. Best make it into a self-supporting, unfolding "popup" of some kind that actually fills the space (and not just be flat and unbalanced).

I'd be a fan of gargantuan pawns. If it were me, I'd do them as interlocking "X-es" (and probably on square bases). The cost is going to be too much for most people, I suspect.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Maps, Pawns, Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

Hard to make a graphic look nice on an interlocking X. Now, if that interlocking X had a quartet of artful walls surrounding it...


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Maps Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

The price would be even higher (six sheets per figure?). Plus it would no longer be a pawn. I agree the x-es wouldn't be perfect, I think they're the best compromise though.


They should make a box that comes with gargantuan pawns with a couple square bases and an extra square colossal base. You wouldn't get a lot of pawns per sheet but it would still be a lot cheaper than a gargantuan mini and you could use the same cardboard piece in the colossal base. I for one love gargantuan minis and I buy them up, but I would also buy the pawns as back ups for second creatures in an encounter and to fill in gaps where I don't have a mini


Yes, Gargantuan and Colossal pawns would really enhance my game! I love my pawns (though bestiary page number would be nice on the pawn instead of whatever number that is on the bottom) but all in all, they work. Monsters and NPCs are clearly distinct from the PCs and that is a good thing. Often time with minis you end up using the same five all night because it's a medium creature and you need one. I can't tell you how many roles my gargantuan black dragon has had to play "alright, now, in this scene you are a creature called an Overworm, think you can do that?"

I'd love some Gargantuan fatties!

I would definitely appreciate it if they made some pawns of those sizes as well, the minis are just so dang expensive or come with the "buy a case first" strings attached.


I would buy a pawns set comprised of all the gargantuan creatures from all the bestiaries that were not included in the other pawn sets.

Otherwise, I have to rotate my three gargantuan "miniatures" for sizing, and say to my group "Okay, the creature doesn't really look like this..."

Just go to a toy shop and buy something appropriately sized.

I already have three gargantuan minis for size, but if they don't like what they are fighting, I may as well have different sized teddy bears to put on the mat.

You can always make your own, too. Heck, I make a bunch of my own paper minis. You just need some kind of vector drawing software (I use Visio, but there are a lot of other cheap/free alternatives.)

Draw two appropriately-sized rectangles. Put half-circles of the appropriate sizes at the top and bottom. Pull in the graphic of the monster, duplicate it, then flip one on the vertical. Line them both up inside the rectangles. If you want to get fancy, label them. On a separate section of the page, draw another full circle of the appropriate size. Print onto cardstock.

You can then follow the instructions from the paper minis instructions to cut out and glue together your paper mini. Only yours can be of gargantuan or colossal size!

Personally I'd rather a gargantuan/tiny set where the tiny miniatures where visibly smaller than the small minis, than a gargantuan/colossal set. Then they could stop giving the fey creatures the shaft they've gotten so far where only a few of them get printed each time. sure each demon always gets printed but where are my brownies and grigs and gremlins?

Count me in for the Gargantuan and colossal pawns


My vote is for Gargantuan / tiny as well as Colossal doesn't come up much. Would still buy Gargantuan / colossal though.

Any thoughts on how diminutive would work?!


I really want the Colossal/Gargantuan pawns! Everytime I see a monster I can't use with the pawns I have I feel like missing something important.
I mean , size isn't always power , but dang a really big thing has its charms when speaking of monsters.


I'm making my own gargantuan pawns as needed but I would so buy a proper set the day it was released.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I build my own as well. Use Warhammer 5inch and 4inch circles, and use wooden planks from models to attach the Paizo base. Its dirty but works. Would be so much better if they would make some pawns and bases...

I would love to be able to buy some Colossal and Gargantuan bases. The pawns I can work around. I would like to have the bases.

I do like that we now have colored bases to choose from.

Just here to add my request for a box of pawns made up of all of the 'huger than Huge' and 'smaller than Small' creatures that appear in Bestiary 1-5, the APs, and other sources.

Sure, I understand that Gargantuan and Colossal don't see [i]as much[/] use as their smaller kin, especially at the lower levels, but I'm sure a lot of people would buy a pawn box of them.

More importantly, I'd like to see the big pawns combined with the very small pawns. While a few Tiny creatures have been released onto Small pawns, the collection is nowhere near complete, it's hard to tell 'Small' from 'Tiny' when they appear on the same size pawn, and the few Tinys that have been released have often not appeared in useful quantities (such as offering 2 of a given Tiny creature, when they usually appear in packs of 6-10 creatures).

With all the pawns currently available, there has to be enough of the biggest and smallest ones to fill out a Bestiary Pawn Box sized set!

Please?
Maybe, if there's hesitation about the level of interest, consider making it a kickstarter? Especially since Paizo already owns all the art needed for the critters....


What thickness are the existing pawns?

If nothing else, a person could print their own from the bestiary art and adhere them to cardboard/stock of the right size then use the existing pawn bases (as some have done)

Scarab Sages

existing pawns are 1/16th of an inch or approx 1.6mm thick

artist mounting board is usually 1400 microns (1.4mm) thick, once you add 2 sheets of printer paper (80 gsm ~ 100 microns) it brings it pretty close to 1.6mm


I too would be interested in a Pawn Set of "huger than Huge" size of creatures.


Should we ask for gargantuan bases to go with this set before or after? Should the bases be part of the set? It could be a box set with its own bases so you wouldn't have to buy those separately.

So how much would you folks pay for a set of Gargantuan/Colossal pawns?

How many pawns would have to come in the set for you to feel like you weren't getting ripped off?

My guys are going to visit only their second gargantuan shortly, possibly this Sunday (a Hell Gigas). I think they would love it. I think they also understand that doing without won't kill them because... this is only the second one in about 50 sessions of gaming. I'm not positive how much I'd be willing to fork over, probably more than I should, however.

I guess I'd pay the same as for any other pawn collection, knowing that there would be fewer actual pawns in the set. Just get as many Gargantuan-sized pawns as you can fit on a sheet, and fill the rest accordingly (from Large on down).

Also, I wouldn't even need bases for them. I am still fond of 3.x pawns that you lay flat on the grid map anyway...


The actual pawns don’t have to be proportional sizes. You can make them a bit bigger and still get 6 pawns per card. Or at worst, 4.

At 16 cards in a box that is either 96 (6) or 64 (4) monsters per box.

All you need beyond that are size appropriate bases.

Anybody know roughly how many Gargantuan+ monsters there are?


According to d20pfsrd Monster database there are 63 Colossal and 135 Gargantuan monsters out of 2811.
I don't know what sources they use so there might be some more from various Adventure paths and so on.
But it seems that two to three boxes are enough.
I would buy them.


Bump. Gargantuan pawns please, even without bases.


Just buy the miniatures. They're already being produced.

There have only been maybe 10 gargantuan figures and 1 colossal figure release (to my knowledge). And the costs of these, especially since many are out of print, are exorbitant to many players.

I would support gargantuan and colossal pawns. They could come without the bases, designed to lay flat instead of standing on a base. Obviously, standing on bases would be better to show off the massive size of these creatures. I would be happy with either.


I agree that the X shape might be a good idea to stand up the gargantuan pawns. It doesn't even need to be two squares. It could be one 4" x 4" imaged square and like a 2"H x 4"W blank triangle to help it stand.

Buy them before they go out of print. Pawn sets go out of print too. Ask all of the people crying over the Monster Codex box.

I don't want some bizarre base to a pawn, not to mention the fact that gargantuan pawns would look ugly on the table.

It's impractical. You have twenty odd folks here saying they want it, so is Paizo supposed to print twenty copies?

Does anybody know of any place to buy the white cardboard that these are made of? I'm happy to make my own gargantuan and tiny pawns, but it would bug me to no end to have them be much different from the rest of my pawns. (I'm weird like that.) I've looked online and all I really find is corrugated cardboard in white. I'd even settle for brown sheets since I'll be printing and pasting the images on. Not the same...

I designed some colossal and gargantuan bases that can be 3d printed, you can find the designs on Thingiverse. I use them with a smaller pawn, just use a huge dragon pawn with the colossal base to get a colossal dragon!
