Cautions: The collection is sorted not by name, but by unpainted visual appearance, in this case, that of an unnaturally large humanoid (significantly larger than 1 inch in standing height to top of head) with the defining minor modifications given under the section titles. So what you might know as a "troll" may not be listed under that heading if the figure is unusually handsome and well-proportioned for a troll; it may be found under the giants category. Humanoids that are not significantly larger than human will be found in the Humanoids collection (orcs for instance). For Extraterrestrial humanoids, see Larger-than-Human Aliens. Since this collection will exceed the page length limit, links will be provided for each category as they become overlarge. Also, the collection cannot be expected to be kept up to date, as it is not the main purpose of this wiki to indulge the viewer with these special galleries; hence, a proper search should ensue if your figure cannot be quickly identified from this gallery.

To find the identity of the figure: Simply click on the thumbnail, then, on the page with the pic, scroll down to see what links to that pic and follow the links.

Editors: Please observe the rules and requests at the top of the edit page.

Giants - human proportions, regal air

There are many types of Giants, not all distinguishable by their looks: Hill, Citadel, Mountain, Fire, Frost, Stone, Storm, Cotswold, 50-Foot Ex-Girlfriend, Mountain, Fomerean/Fomorean, Cloud.

Famous Giants: Aloadae (50 foot tall giants) Otus and Ephialtes. Orion was the great hunter who could wade through the sea; Antaeüs (Antaeus) was a wicked wrestler who would always spring up stronger as he was renewed by Gaea (Earth). Cacus was the son of Vulcan (Hephaestus) and so, a fire-breathing giant. Talus was a giant made out of bronze, with ichor, the life-blood of an immortal; his only weakness was his behind his ankle, where a thin skin covered his vein.


Death Giants - skeletal giants


Hecatron

Not to be confused with "Hekatron", this Ral Partha favorite is at least 22 years older. Even in the insert for 10-304, it is unrevealed what sort of giant Hecatron actually is. He has been painted as Fire or Hill most frequently, though Stone is not out of character for this sculpt. The sculpt is not that large, so perhaps this species was meant to be of Giant-kin. Perhaps the sculptor was inspired by the name for the Hekatonkheires, but of course, who wants to sculpt something with a hundred hands?


Hulks and Juggernauts - overbulked for their height


Titans - very tall, garbed in Ancient Greek battledress


Ugly (regardless of disposition)

Ogre-Giants and Orcish Ogres - somewhat socialized, oversized uglies of normal proportions


Ogres - Wild and Barbaric-looking


Goat-Headed Ogres


Ogre Magi (Oni) Eastern Ogres

Trolls-Ganglier, dullish brutes, often with large noses

Winged (mutated) trolls will be found in Devils & Demons.

(ugly; third arm sprouts from chest; furry and bearded; pear-shaped, flabby bodies, orc-like faces, warts)

Ettins - two heads

(Alternative Names: yetuns, yotuns)

Red Ettin - three heads

Gargantuas - hairy and bulky; apelike

Famous Persons: Gargantua and his son Pantagruel from the five 16th c. novels by François Rabelais; pawned from the discarded cells of Frankenstein's monster are: Gaira, the Green Gargantua who lives in seawater; Sanda, the Brown Gargantua raised in captivity who lives in the mountains.


Hephaestons - Tall (figures over 4 in.), muscular upper body, favoring swords and axes

Verbeeg - Shorter, thinner half-ogres with various minor birth deformities
