New painted Reapers appear to be out... 4 Years, 9 Months ago  
Haven't heard ANYTHING about the whole "re-branding" of the line, but after ten million years, Reaper finally got out 5 or so new painted minis. I only found them online, haven't seen them in person (and pics were all the official ones, not production samples). But they seem neat -- werewolf, bugbear, goblins, giant spider, maybe I'm forgetting one. I'll post pics when they're in my grubby mitts....

Here they have pictures of the new LE miniatures:

I have ordered the werewolf and the goblins. I think the werewolf looks best and goblins are
always useful. They also have pictures of next 4 (unicorn, dragon, vampire and gargoyle):

The Bugbear seems to have some blue from his clothing on his flesh in that promo pic, which isn't really ideal.

I love Reaper, but I hate pre-paints. I pretty much hate Reaper's pre-paints, alas.

I've said it before and I'll say it again ...

IF Reaper REALLY wants this line to take off they need to do something that hasn't been done multiple times already by the D&D minis. Like ....

... wait for it ....

You hate pre-paints, Why do you HATE them?

Since I don't buy unpainted metal becuase I don't enjoy painting, don't have the time, don't like to cart around all of the heavy metal figures, etc I should Hate unpainted metal minis?

I hate the way they look, is what I mean. I actually prefer the way that unpainted lead minis look, if I had to choose.

Got mine -- I have to say, they ARE a big improvement.

The goblins are only okay, but they're so small and such (IMHO) bland sculpts, there's only so much you can expect.

The bugbear and the spiders are decent -- slightly better than the prior releases, but not stellar.

The werewolf, on the other hand, is really really good. It's sharper, cleaner than any WOTC mini, less bendy plastic -- it really looks good. If all prepainted plastics were this good, I think, it would really be a different hobby. I really think the werewolf stands with the best preplastics anybody's done.

Hi L,

Would you mind posting some pics of your own? I'm really considering getting some.

Greetings!
