AAAANYWAY...We have Giants now, next up: Halflings! Halflings will bring us up to 220 minis.
I didn't think the halflings were worth posting a picture of, either....

it's pretty underwhelming after sexy athena and zeus with a sword.

also; for everyone else; from my post on the reaper forums;

"We should also be aware that the stretch goal rewards from here on out, barring options, might not be as spectacular as they once were. There are only four halflings for one of the biggest stretch goals yet.

It's not a bad thing. It just means that reaper is doing their best to keep up with the costs of making and shipping 2,320,607+ minis, and that's not even accounting for the options that MANY people have UNDOUBTEDLY ordered.

When we hit $2.24mil, everyone at vampire and undertaker getting halflings is another 42,172+ minis they have to make.

also, these estimates can not possibly be entirely accurate, hence the plus following them, as they do not account for the number of people who have selected vampire, undertaker, mummy, ghost, wraith or ghast levels multiple times. I just calculated them for everyone here to put things in perspective."

boobs. that is all.

For those wondering about the look and quality of the Bones material:

Seems pretty soft, but doesn't seem to crack or break when moving around, so I'd be fine with that. Good detail too.

40k to go before the half-sized heroes and the next goal is relevealed. Their initial goal was $30,000 but they are at $2,200,000 now. Think they set their goal a little low?

So half sized heroes are now there. Golems revealed as the next goal. And yeah, they are nearing being 7500% funded round about now.

Some people are worried about not hitting 3 mill. Apparently there was a problem with google payments last night/this morning that kept people from pledging for several hours. Seems fixed now though and we're steaming way.

I like waiting to see how much more free stuff I'm getting! I'd put the over/under at 3mil. Any takers? Wish we could bet our rep. Then I could get enough to make people think I contribute to this site in some way.

Yeah they do. For the vampire pledge you just add $25 to your pledge for all international shipping So would be around 80 for the vampire pledge plus shipping if I did my maths right.

I'm thankful that I checked this thread out yesterday, I've seen 'Reaper Kickstarter' kicking around on various forums but never checked it out. I've been using their paints and brushes for a year now, but didn't realise how good (and cheap) some of those minis are.
Excellent way to upscale their production, will keep any eye out for other manufacturers doing the same.

Scanning the images, I can see some great lords/heroes for WoC, an inquisitorial warband for 40k, a horde of monsters for Storm of Magic in the options and to my mind mechanised Gorilla is as good an Ogryn as anything else

Absolute steal at around NZ$160 with shipping, plus plenty to trade with Dark Elves/Tomb Kings/Vampire Counts players.

I have nothing against semi-naked winged biker chicks per se, but does anyone happen to know what the trade in options for Sophie will be?
