REAPER MINIS NEW KICKSTARTER!
« on: August 02, 2017, 06:01:19 AM »
They're at it again!

yes, $100 sounds like a lot, but every time Reaper does this, you end up with 250+ minis out of the deal by the time all the stretch goals are added.

For perspective - the campaign started yesterday w/ a $30k goal.  This morning they're over $650k and climbing.

I am thinking about this however you won't get the Miniatures until 2019.  That is the only thing holding me back.

So, wait. It's $100 for over 70 minis? And it is $185 for all 36 Star Trek Adventures minis?

it's 70 minis right now.  By the time the stretch goals are done being added on, you'll freak out at how many minis you'll end up with.

And Reaper isn't paying licensing fees for the Star Trek guys...

Do they actually add more minis as stretch goals are reached?

The stretch goals I'm seeing are just added purchase options (e.g. the $10 Wraiths add-on) that are unlocked.


Still debating getting the core set.  Despite probably not seeing it for nearly two more years.

They're adding them to the 'base set' picture. They were at 70 minis when bbmike posted above. They're at 115 and climbing now.

Look at everything that's in the green-bordered picture. That's what you get for the $100 pledge, and they're still adding.

Ahh!  Thanks.

I'm used to KS projects displaying the stuff added to the base pledge in the extra "unlock" graphics below.
