They're not up on the EU store yet. If you switch to the US one you'll see them.

With November comes Thanksgiving (and other similar harvest festivals)!

And Reaper is ready!




First off are two wereturkeys for your heroes to hunt down for their dinners!






And for those who prefer roast lamb two weresheep to make a yummy meal.



And a nice doggy to eat your leftovers.



Last but not least, the absolutely charming freeby for this month.

In sadder Reaper news, Ed Pugh has passed away.

My sympathies to his friends and family.

Besides its other virtues Reaper always struck me as an uncommonly (in the gaming world) well-run company.

Unfortunately, the video is no longer around, but Ed gave a "State of the Industry" video that explained why Reaper went with the Bones KS. Nowadays, KS is (rightly) perceived as a FOMO hype machine, but, back then, companies like Reaper couldn't make enough money (cash flow) for more than a few metal steel molds for their Bones line, despite it being their most popular line. Much worse, distributors were "cherry picking" products from everyone, so Reaper's (and other company's) fans weren't able to get the miniatures (or product) they wanted. (Ed mentioned that even HeroClix was initially not picked up by distributors.). KS was how Reaper, and companies like them, made enough capital for projects retail could and would not support. Reaper Bones I was my entry into the miniatures hobby, (although my retiring gave me the time to paint). Will miss Ed a lot.

On the brighter side, the "12 Days of Reapermas" starts on December 5th! Free mini and other stuff at $40, free US shipping at $50. Prices are MSRP, so better to buy mini's you can't find elsewhere. : https://www.reapermini.com/12days

NotifyGrout's Goobertown Hobbies DIY Contrast mix:
* 1 drop matte medium
* 1 drop flow-aid water mixture (1:20)
* 1 drop acrylic ink

My own:
* White-primed miniature lightly pre-inked in a dark shade.
* 1 drop acrylic ink in a small pot of paint (eg. children's craft paint). Do not mix.
* Dip the brush in the ink. As you paint, you can dip into the paint to make the layer more opaque.

My sympathies to Ed's family and friends. He did a fine job in making Reaper the go to company for just the right mini for every occasion. Such a wonderfully deep catalog.

Ed was a great guy, and an amazing leader.

The Cat Dragon is the star?? What about the Eldritch Snowman? How can you beat carrot face tentacles?

That guy has me seriously tempted, but after all the Black Friday sales, I am tapped out.


My condolences to Ed Pugh's family. I've only known him through the work of his company, but it is a great company, which under his stewardship showcased the work of many great sculptors, particularly from the Ral Partha era. Without Reaper, I have to wonder what would have become of outstanding talents like Julie Guthrie, Bob Ridolfi, and many more. Even some of my favorite British sculptors, like Bob Olley and Tim Prow, have a respectable footprint in Reaper's products.

I never knew Ed personally, but he clearly had great taste and a keen eye for talent. Long may his legacy continue.

Besides the Christmas stuff, December releases are coming out.

The Greco Roman expansion from Bones... 5 I think? is appearing.



First off we have the Roman version of Herakles, I forget his name.



Middle of the road archer/Amazon/Artemis/Diana type person.



Wizard/philosopher/wise man



Jaxon! Hero of the classic tale Jaxon and Argonauts!



And finally an adventuring scribe, the OTHER freebie this month, BESIDES the Santa Barbarian!

If you're on the fence this is a good month to order from Reaper. (October is also a good month for freebies).

None of these will be following me home this month, though the scribe will go on my wish list.

I'm hoping the Zeus-like Storm Giant and other Greek monsters will show up soon, those I have plans for.

Yes, I also want those larger models for Greek and Roman gods for Of Gods and Mortals.

I also might pick up a few of those other Greek/Roman themed models for other games like Broken Legion and what not.

I am glad they are finally coming out!
