Gargantuan models


Pathfinder Second Edition General Discussion

So, one thing I want to do is like have a model/pawn or something for every creature that my party members may encounter. (Also I'm a crazy person that NEEDS a complete kollection of things.)

So I have to ask, is there any like 3d print models or like anything for the gargantuan sized creatures in the bestiaries and the Adventure Paths? Or even like anyone make a print n use thing for pawns? OR something? Like a little gargantuan token picture thing? I know Gargantuan sized creatures are 4x4 and up so it would be vastly different. I just want SOMETHING.

Because there is some creatures in Age of Ashes I really want to have on the board with full pictures featured.. And I can't if I don't have any good tokens or models D:

Thanks for any help.


What is the level of detail you are looking for with the models? Also if you yourself have a 3d printer you can always scale up things to be the right size. Or if you are willing to make things yourself you can learn a 3d modeling program like blender or zbrush.

edit, I quickly looked through the list of gargantuan monsters and I could only find 6 of the 62 monsters that are gargantuan that dont have some kind of model for them or have something that could easily be scaled up or a proxy.


Heroforge has good-ish tools to create 3d models you can 3d print
the problem is that some 3d printers struggle with the models
and from my own experience I can say that it is hard to ge a 3d printer thats not overly expansive and good at the moment


Technically these are D&D OGL models, but most of the creatures exist in Pathfinder too.

Elegoo saturn is going to be the best choice for a medium format, fast and cheap 3d printer. However it sells out super fast because of this.


If you don't mind the expensive option, Games Workshop has a fair few absolutely massive monsters that are of really high quality, though expect to spend a lot to get them.

I would also check out war machine/hordes minis, and reaper, as there are a handful of gargantuan sized minis to be found there.

Other than that, 3d printing or toys are your only options for most gargantuan creatures - I do remember seeing a few kickstarters that have really good downloadable minis for 3d printing.

Also, I have stumbled across this website - they have downloadable 3d printable minis for sale, a lot of which which are d&d/pf monsters (they even have a tarrasque!)

Hmn, thank you all for the help, but I guess what I come across next is the sizes of these models/tokens. How do I know what the spaces I should use for these models since the books don't give an exact size (all I know is that they are 20+ But I know this means a huge difference between many of them.)


Gargantuan creatures should be 4 squares across


It doesn't look like there's much consistency in specifying the size of gargantua. The roc (B1 281) is mentioned in the text as having a 30' body and a wingspan upward of 80', but doesn't have any special quality describing the amount of space it takes. While the Mu Spore (B1 238) does have such a quality ('Enormous') and specified space (10x10).
I think you'll have to check the flavor text in the case of each Gargantuan creature. Luckily, they are quite uncommon so it won't be a very time-consuming task.

Pg 195 in the CRB, table 8-4: Creature size and scale

Gargantuan (tall) space 20 ft. natural reach 20ft.
Gargantuan (long) space 20 ft. natural reach 15ft.

Individual monster stat blocks will also list the space and reach a creature occupies.


The size table (CRB 474) mentions that Gargantuan creatures have a Space of 20 feet or more, which is what led to the original poster's question.

Right, but if they take up more, their entry specifies that.

That's simply because there is no size above Gargantuan, so anything bigger is still Gargantuan.

Oh okay, so the entries normally specify if they take up MORE than the 20 feet.

Alright, I haven't seen much in the way of sizes while going through the entries (Like the sibilings in Age of Ashes part 6) Which is where I was being held up mostly. But if that's the scale, I get it, I think I can get what I need done done now ♥

To be cost effective I'm going to make "coins" of these creatures in their respective sizes (Printable) And having them 4x4 inches (Depending on the actual creature of course.) Using whatever pictures I have.

I was pricing trying to get one of those aforementioned sibilings and ooph ;-; It costs me enough already to make sure I have everything. That is a bit too much to add D:
