Hi Everyone,

A bit of an odd request here, I'm looking for a miniature for a home-brew character for a D&D campaign, so it has to have a 28mm base.

The character is basically a yeti/abomnible snowman/giant monkey. I've seen a few online but they all appear to be larger than 28mm bases.

Any suggestions?

Check out item BC9, Yetis. These are 28mm figures (about 28mm toe to top of head for a human male adult), though yetis are a bit large. You can put it on a 28mm base if desired.

I have a problem with this...

What self respecting Adventuring group would not kill this abomination outright first then ask what it is???..

"

Players: (in unison)"KILL IT BFORE IT BREEDS!!"


DM: "OOPS!.. that was Nicks PC..."

It worked for Luke, Obi-Wan, and Han.

I think everything Reaper makes is too big except this guy.

Which isn't to say you couldn't maybe cram one of those others onto a 28mm base, but their scale may not be what you're looking for (which is a shame, because this guy is magnificent, but he's about 20' tall on a 28mm scale).

As far as I can tell, this guy never got produced, but I can't find any contact info for the sculptor.


Anyway, please let us know what you find. I've been looking for a bigfoot/yeti figure for a long time for a superhero game. I'm sure you've also done web searches and have found this is something a lot of people are looking for. I'd like him to be on the order of 8' tall and not so animalistic. A smaller version of that second guy would be perfect. I'll probably have to give up and order a Heroclix Sasquatch online.

(Hmm, had never seen this before. No idea of the scale. Also, depending on how willing you are to mod or overlook certain elements, I think Ape X is on a 28mm base).

So, I'm going to resurrect this old thread to mention this KickStarter campaign:

He's a little pricey at $20, but I haven't seen anything quite like it.
