Why would they target a massive and growing demographic when they could target the niche group of wargamers?

The models themselves are pretty neat tho!

I'll vouch for the grey plastic figures.

They are the sweet spot for bones figures.



At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

I wish they would just do all of their models in reaper black. Its the best quality of models they have made in plastic yet. The details are basically just as crisp as metal or resin.

Maybe one day...

2 time sensitive announcements:

"Cyber Monday" (Nov 29 to those who don't memorize US retail calendars) specials are coming. Reaper will have both the normal and the glow in the dark pirate ships for $200 along with some other models. Strangely not their cyberpunk line though

https://www.reapermini.com/search/cybermonday

Then Dec 1-12 will be the "12 Days of Reaper" with a different limited edition figure each day.

Furries wanting to play as idealized versions of themselves have existed long before the current Witchlight and Prom Potter phase of D&D. Though I don't doubt that was the recent impetus that it's trying to capitalize off of.

What size base is that? Even if it's a 25mm, that figure is like 50mm to the eyes. So useless for Haregon or most PC's.

Reaper figures come on "figure sized bases", which is to say that the base size is only relevant to that sculpt, unless they are sculpted without bases or with a slot. They used to have very helpful measuring devices in their pictures, but no more...

Anthropomorphic rabbits always remind me of Hoops, from the Gamma World RPG, at least the 1st edition. They were big, like over 2 meters tall, and turned metal to rubber. Nasty. Oc course everything in that game was nasty. Gamma World was a very lethal place.

Ordered the Henchmen and Hirelings set. Nostalgia is one hell of a motivator, and added Giselle the Sorceress for the heck of it-- that whole nostalgia thing again. Reaper is rather generous with the free add ons, no? I ordered a paint set too and Reaper threw in 6 more minis including the Rabbit. Is this normal for them? THis is the first I've ordered directly from Reaper.

I believe that some of those generous freebies come from the Reaper Christmas offers.

Yes, during Christmas last year I got a Christmas gift pack (Krampus paint kit and candy), the monthly free miniature (which was a choice from the whole year's worth of figures), and a 12 days of Christmas metal figure. And it came in a week.

The free rabbit, er, harefolk, the christmas sampler mini, 2 of the 12 days of christmas offerings, and two others. So 3 are from Christmas offers. No matter, something 'por lagniappe' is always welcomed.

As we close out Year of Our Covid 2020 Mk1 we have one last round of Reaper releases.

As you might expect most are limited rereleases for Christmas/Hanukah/New Years but there are some surprises in there.





The Bones weapons pack has plenty of options for tricking out your fantasy figures. Nothing I really need ATM but nice to see it. I'd totally eat up a sci-fi or modern version though.



The crypt of the dwarven king has some well dwarves and dwarf stuff and a ghost dwarf king so y'know in case you're running a game involving dwarves who go into a dwarf king's crypt and meet a dwarf king ghost you're now all set.

I suppose with some work it could also serve as the Squat Guildmaster's Tomb or the Gnome Regent's Mausoleum.



Valfuryx is a Forest Dragon as you can clearly see from all the foresty accoutrements it comes with like um... uh... that rock. I supposed with some snow effects he can also serve Walfuryx the Arctic Dragon or with water effects Xalfuryx the Sea Dragon. Converting him to Yalfuyx the Jungle Dragon and Zalfuyx the Desert Dragon are only recommended for expert modellers.




CAV gets two 10mm scale planes which might also work in other games like Aeronautica Imperialis and X-Wing. I always liked their Space A-10 and might have to get one.






Christmas rereleases include Christmas Eve, Christmas Carol, and two Christmas Knights.



And the ever popular Santa Dwarf.



As for the Dreidel Golem what can I add to this fluff text?

Dreidel Golems began as a simple betting game using an enchanted four sided teetotum. Bets would be placed and a word would be spoken to set the top spinning.

No one knows the name of the first mage to use this simple device as a treasure guardian, but when one is found the treasure it guards is ancient. Like most such constructs, the Dreidel Golem stands motionless until one of its four eyes detects motion too near. Then the golem begins spinning like a top, its four arms extended, as it produces a flurry of blows, caroming around the room until all foes are dead or driven off.

If its command words are known, the golem can be controlled, even used in its original capacity as a betting game piece.




Finally they round things out with some holiday paint sets.

I've ordered from Reaper around both Halloween and Christmas and been very happy with the freebies and rewards they toss in, it just feel like a nice company if that makes sense.

Anyway so we can close the books on 2021 (2020 won?) and took forward to 2022 (2020 too?)!

I think you're being unfair here, this does look a bit like a tree stump? Of course you could paint it up as a petrified tree stump, then you'd get a rock, and a Prehistoric Forest Dragon!

Are those CAV planes in Bones material or something else?

Are the weapon sprues limited release? I got one of each in the KS and I need more. More!

"Dualcast" is not the Bones PVC, it is some sort of "thermoplastic resin". I would expect it to be similar or even identical to the "Bones USA" SioCast material.

Yes, limited availability: The weapon sprues are originally from one of the early Bones Kickstarters, they discovered a crate of them when moving warehouse recently, and have put them up for sale.

They never released the weapon sprues to retail because of problems with finding packaging. Due to a misundertanding with the chinese factory that made them, there were two of each weapon on the sprues, which made the sprues end up much larger than Reaper had anticipated.

Reaper has some strange things going on with their materials. My recent order had 2 minis in METAL -- the LE Christmas minis. 1 mini in the 2nd gen bones material, the light gray stuff, 1 in a strange rubbery translucent red material and 2 in the new siocast ( or siocast type) material and the box of henchmen and hirelings was something else entirely, some sort of restic maybe? Hard gray plastic that holds detail well enough but is a real chore to clean. Fortunately the minis required minimal cleaning. That's 5 different materials.

A picture of the freebies. The paints were a nice surprise. Over the past year, I've come to like using Reaper Paints.

the red is the same generation as the white bones material and based on a similar pvc mix (so will go sticky if you use the wrong aerosol primers)

I use Gesso to prime minis so no worries. It is a very bendy material, bendier than the white bonesium. I have a few white bonesium minis. They were cheap. That's about all they have going for them.

I don't even KNOW anymore.

Reaper definitely wants those weapon sprues out the door - they were an option in the "choose your freebie" deal on my last order.
