Support Reaper Bones (and get miniature rewards)

August 14th, 2012 by Lead

Reaper miniatures want to ramp up their line of Reaper bones miniatures. In case you missed out, Reaper bones are Reaper’s foray into the world of polymer miniatures. They are really cheap to buy and the quality is great, unfortunately the cost of setting up the production line (tooling) is very expensive.

This is what reaper have to say:

Since the launch of Bones in March, a full third of the figures we ship are Bones Gaming Miniatures. We have 8 pages of Bones suggestions going in our forum. It’s clear that you, our fans, want more of these Bones figures. And why not? They’re awesome sculpts at a terrific price! What’s not to love?

As it turns out, they’re also really expensive to produce. The mold costs alone are astronomical. In order to grow this line, we can do it slow and steady over the next several years, or we can defer to you guys and launch a bunch of new ones as soon as possible.

By the end of the year, we anticipate having 30 products in the Bones line. What this Kickstarter will do is at least double the Bones line to 60 total models: character models, new sculpts, big monsters, the sky’s pretty much the limit.

All we need to kickstart this thing is your support.

In order to spur you onwards they are offering a fairly sophisticated kickstarter reward program. Depending on how much you offer up, you will receive various miniatures in return. Best check out their web-site to prevent me from having to reproduce all the details here. I suggest you look at the column on the right which makes a lot of sense before looking at all the miniature eye candy.

Scibor Miniatures – Dwarven Ruins

Three great set pieces for you diorama. Suitable for figures in the 25mm-28mm “scale”. I love them. They’d make the perfect ruined statues at the entrance to of an abandoned dwarves strong-hold, or a symbolic defense of a narrow pass leading towards the mithril mines.

Necrotales - Patchwork Clothing & Stitching

Interesting article on how to paint patches and heavy stitches. Patchwork sticking is great for adding rough character to your miniatures. Don’t overdo it though, that is unless you happen to be creating a giant flesh golem miniature whose evil creator couldn’t find big enough patches of humanoid flesh.
