Default Reaper Miniatures, Bones Kickstarter

Update: They're now at over $1 million dollars, and the Vampire level deal has gotten farking insane! 190 really awesome models for $100, amazing and cheap options. Seriously, get on board this now, 4 days to go and then it's gone! Remember, downside is delievery isn't until March next year, upside is that you get pretty much every fantasy RPG model you could ever want. Get on board now, or miss out!


Update: They've got over $750,000 pledged now, and the additions to the deal keep on coming. 7 days to go. Mini cases for $25, Dragons and giants for $10, all sizes of beasties make it pretty amazing. There are more than are shown in the pictures here, go take a look!

It seems Reaper minis have jumped on the Kickstarter bandwagon in an effort to raise some money to shift more of their metal line over the their new "Bones" plastic line. They were looking for $30,000, and have now raised (checks site) $450,000 dollars, and they keep piling extra things into their deals.

Now, they have some basic levels, but the one that counts is the Vampire level - $100 plus postage ($25), which now has over 100 minis in it, and they keep on adding more as the total goes up.

Downside is that they haven't actually got the production facilities ready for these things yet, so you won't take delivery until March next year - a pretty long wait.

Up side is that you get enough RPG Heros, monsters, baddies and whatnot to play pretty much any fantasy RPG you feel like. Also, some good conversion opportunities for WFB.

Fucking amazing undead dragon


Oh, and you see those giants and dragons and things going for $10 or so? Yeah, they aren't small at all.

Whatever game you like. Reaper seem to aim their minis at the rpg mini market. Minis for characters and encounters in dungeon crawl rpg's and the like. They do some cool stuff too. I want the Sophie model on the motorbike but i cannot seem to find it. I have a couple of the sophie models from a few years ago.

Fantasy RPGs generally (D&D mostly), though there's quite a few things in there which would be great for Warhammer Fantasy (especially some of the big stuff), or other types of RPG. There's also some Chronoscope stuff in there which is a bit more futuristic.

Hmmm... $100 for 115 minis? I don't really need RPG minis at the moment, but I can't really thumb my nose at that offer, either.

IN THE US? ASK ME HOW TO GET 10% OFF GAMES WORKSHOP PRODUCTS!

I know. I haven't had a stable game of D&D in ages, and I've a lifetime of accumulated generic fantasy miniatures lying around.
My father owned a game store for fuck's sake. We had our pick of the old Ral Parthas when it closed down

But my inner bargain hunter just can't turn that aside.
Especially if they make their last goal and it becomes over 125 minis for $100...throw in a case to carry them all for an extra $25 maybe? Or else spend that $25 on 3 big meaty dragons...
