Well I bought two each of the cart-pigs and associated pig-carts, and then had to spend another £40 or so to get free shipping, and I blamethank this forum.

Do they give any way of knowing the size of a given figure? I'm wondering how the gorillas stack up to other miniatures

They used to have a really useful measuring stick in all of their shots.

Then they went to a less useful M for metal or B for bones indicator (that was something like 1/4").

Now they often have nothing and you have to guess, or look up the kickstarter or... just buy it?

The bryangle was the name of the measuring device and they stopped using it when Bryan left Reaper for Secret Weapon.

Ah, the Flail Snail. Simon Tilbrook's claim to immortality. The "Fiend Folio", so... not good. But it did have some interesting monsters from the mind of Charles Stross. At least it had that going for it.

Plus some stuff from a clowns named Jes Goodwin and Sir Ian Livingstone CBE, wonder if those nerds ever made anything of their lives.

It's a shame they don't have a box that's just the minis, I like quite a few, but have absolutely no interest in all the stuff that comes with them.

Hoi Chummers.

So I know the theme is cyberpunks, but is Reaper trying to do Not~Shadowrun? Cause it sure looks like Reaper is doing Not~Shadowrun.

















I like them but I don't like them $50-$100. I would be very surprised if these are not up for retail at some point.

They have some fluff created for all of this. They tend to do that for their reapercons with faction symbols and everything. I like the looks of some of them but they're really trying to cover Shadowrun, generic cyberpunk, starfinder and general pulp all under the same banner (like why two archeologist type figures?).

I'll be interesting to see if they push more into those genres as typically they haven't been big sellers for Reaper but now that there's a lot more RPGs these could be used in maybe they're seeing better sales.

Ya, love those figs but not paying for all the extras I don’t want. I hope this is a new line because I’d like to give Reaper some of my money.

I got my Reaper Christmas order last week and thought I'd share a bit.



The freebies were very nice, a half dozen paints, 3 models, candy and Krampus.

And of course a tactical rock-I mean lump of coal.



The new grey bones material is also a marked improvement, here's a pirate captain extensively converted into a space pirate captain (note how the sword was swapped for a chain sword, that's some pro-level $%^& right there).

Fast shipping and nice deals, I think it's worth ordering from the company itself.

Just placed another $80 order and I blamethank this thread too. I hope whoever started it is getting a cut from them!

I got that exact same figure as a free bonus from reaper a few years ago, in original bones. I did a similarly complex conversion to turn him into my Warhammer Quest warrior priest who had found himself a Hammer of Sigmar.

And you appear to have added a holstered pistol in exactly the same place, so it's still basically the same conversion you did, just with slightly different bits. And in any case, a conversion doesn't have to be complicated to be effective.

Yeah. The most simple of conversions tend to be the best.

While an in-depth conversion can produce amazing results, often a simple swap or glued on part can change the entire tone of a mini.

The new Bones Black stuff is nice, although be warned it is not as indestructible as the older materials. A bit more like regular resins, the good pressure cast ones, than bones. I had the Mammok (giant mammoth guy) from the KS arrive with multiple broken parts.

Reaper replaced him no problem because they are awesome, but just something to bear in mind.
Hopefully producing them all in the US will help some of the truly awful pre-build issues. I have spend as long on some models taking them apart and rebuilding as I have ignoring them as they wait in the thousands long queue...

First all the complaints about Chainmail bikinis and how they might as well be naked, now we are swinging back the other way
