Shockwave Giant
« on: July 20, 2016, 06:53:20 AM »
So, how does he tie in with WP lore considering he isn't an oversized anthropomorphic animal but more like an oversized troll or orc?

Or am I the only one who doesn't think the character fits in with the rest?

I mean, he's not the first giant to join the Warpath. But you're right that his art sets him apart more than most.

Perhaps there will be more giants (and giant tribal) in Rebellion, in line with this new style.

Giants are a really inconsistent subtype lorewise so far.

Jungle Giant is called a giant, looks like a walking tree (the only plant-ish looking character in wp so far), but actually has the subtype beast.

Hidden by Clouds looks very giantish, has reach, but is also a beast.

Force against the Law looks like a huge tiger-beastish character, way more than Jungle Giant or Hidden by Clouds imo, but is a giant....so yeah, that is a really strange subtype.

And now Shockwave Giant doesnt have reach and an entirely new look.
