TOPIC: If your looking to populate your DF dungeons...
#47185
Re:If your looking to populate your DF dungeons... 1 Year, 11 Months ago  
I just pledged a vampire level (dammit!) and added all the giants, a few dragons and other stuff for good measurement. ;)
Is it bad that I don't even know the exact amount of miniatures I get at this point? 170? 180? (let's read that out loud: something between one hundred and seventy and one hundred and eighty miniatures! :D). Including the shipping costs that's not even 1,20$ per miniature. Well done, Reaper. Well done. :)

I totally understand Kronos! I pledged Vampire level, too, but I am sure it will result in double Vampire level with all the options I want to have AND further options still be revealed.
Though I have to admit that the quality of these miniatures is inferior to ohter producers, still these prices can't be beat. I am looking forward to see what else will be revealed...

Do you mean the quality of the material of the Bones line or the sculpts of the miniatures?

I can't say anything about the material, but the sculpts are really good most of the time. It really depends who sculpts the individual miniature. Everything from Werner Klocke for example is just aweseome.
All in all they do good stuff and almost everything they show in their Kickstarter is really good too. I have many of the miniatures from the vampire level in the original metallic version (a detail that no longer discourages me from participating in this Kickstarter) and they are really cool. :)

Here are a few examples of Reaper minis I really like (there are a few I like even more but they where not included in my recent setups since it was an undead adventure so I have no photos of them yet):




This Fighter is included in the Kickstarter with an alternate Weapon (a sword). (The undead are not from Reaper)


This Fighter is also included in the Kickstarter.








The skullstaff wielding necromancer is one of my fafourite Reaper minaitures. :)

I am looking forward to see what else will be revealed...
Me too! The chance that I will increase my pledge is very high. :)

I think he means the quality of the material?

I haven't read anything negative about them, unlike FineCast. However, I still really prefer the weight and durability of metal.

I was a true believer in metal too. But when my setup became bigger and more importantly higher while I experimented with different levels I became a big fan of resin and plastic since the miniatures are lighter. Now I prefer plastic and resin over metal in every way. This goes espaccially for big miniatures. I have several metal dragons from Reaper and I don't like to use them that much in setups with different heights. But since the Bones line has dragons too this will not be an issue much longer. :)

What I meant was the finished product. The sculpts are really nice and I agree with Kronos, that those from metal are excellent. I have a lot of those Reaper miniatures myself since they specialise in miniatures for roleplaying in contrast to GW for example who makes miniatures for table-top games (e.g. masses of them).
As for the Bones material, what I saw from the existing Bones-range is quality-wise not excellent but only good. From a GW point of view at least.
Nonetheless you are right concerning Finecast. When we released the first finecast products, in my shop we had 20% of miscasts. The important thing is though (and this is a fact most flamers out there chose to ignore and don't mention) that in a GW store we ALWAYS exchange the product either for the same new one, another or for your money even without receipt or knowing you bought it someplace else.
Furthermore we used to ask all customers to open their finecast product in the shop and look inside to see if they are happy with its quality. If not, see above. Since the beginning of may, all finecast products are hand-checked before leaving the warehouse and the quality has risen in a way that it's not necessary anymore to ask customers to open the products in the shop.
But as Kronos said, I also prefer finecast and/or plastic to metal any time. All my players aren't too careful with miniatures and paint will stay on those 2 materials way better and chip off as easily.

jgardner44 - Thanks for posting about the Reaper Kickstarter!

Thought I already had plenty of minis since I have a slew off unpainted figures setting around, but who could pass up the Vampire level offer! When I pledged it was up to 178 minis for $100. Not to mention all the cool optional items. Demons, and giants, and dragons, oh my!

I suspect that the vampire level of pledge on the reaper kickstarter will end with miniatures at a price of 50 cents each....and the big optional figures are a steal for the price and size they are. Take a look at the HUGE dracolich on the next stretch goal which I suspect we will reach by tomorrow night. It will be perfect to go in my Dwarven Forge Catacomb set!!!!

I urge a few of you to mention the catacomb set to people on the kickstarter, this can be good advertising for DF as well.

The Reaper kickstarter has gone ballistic! From a $30,000 goal, they've already topped $1 million! The rewards keep piling up for the Vampire level, with crazy good options to boot. I can't imagine how it's going to end up, and I suspect that the folks at Reaper are amazed as well. This is one wild ride, folks! Jump in on it now!
