    I am looking for a giant to use with my WFB armies.
    The Copplestone one is very cool but at about 40mm tall not quite tall enough.
    Anyone know of any giants aimed at 10/15mm that are about 50mm tall?

    You could mail Leon and check how tall the Pendraken giants are:

    No 28mm ogres or trolls that fit the bill? Nothing springs to mind but I just wonder if there is anything more slender in build that would work….

    And a Google gives…

    https://www.alternative-armies.com/products/fl25-ogre-mercenary which looks pretty good to me though the axe may need to be clubbed.

    Shorter than the Copplestone ones. 🙁

    Plus 28mm figures don’t have the right look. Need shields as knee pads. Planks of wood as shin guards. Things that let you know it is a giant.

    There are a few good models of giants on thingsverse. They could easily be scaled to 50mm and printed.

    Dark alliance 1/72nd scale cyclops’. I’m using them as 15mm giants. Great value too, 12 in a box (4 poses) for £8

    Polar Fox (https://www.polarfox.info/10mm_Miniatures/cat2627800_2334741.aspx) have these at 20 euros. They are on 20x40mm bases.

    Reaper Miniatures (https://www.reapermini.com/) have several ogres, at just under a ten quid, that might do – eg Garnuk or Bones plastic ones at around four quid

     

    Heresy have Big Boris for somewhere over a tenner depending on choices you make

    Do any of those help?

    The old Tabletop Minis fire giant from Alternative Armies is about 50mm tall:

    528 Fire Giant

    Never argue with an idiot. They'll only drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    I have found an old warmaster one at about 46mm tall which I am getting.
    Thanks folks.

    Job done, all being well.

    For 15mm I use a variety of 28mm and larger figures for trolls and giants.  You can really use what you wish.

    Indeed!
    But for me I want things that make it clear it is a giant when looked at in isolation.
    So the model I now have has a tree for a club, some heads of regular sized people as a necklace and indeed some 10mm people tucked into its belt as a snack.
    There is no way you could mistake it is a giant when viewed away from other figures.

    For example your Ogre model has a cannon as a gun, very clearly a big creature.

    The Warmaster giant is quite a different build, which hasn’t stopped me using the ogres as Meadow Giants in my Marienburg Crusade army.

    I’ve stumbled across these on eBay – both of which look pretty cool. I am looking at doing 2nd ed Warhammer and in the army lists you can have a Giant army and there’s 3 sizes of giant. (Just like the BFG)
