Reaper Minis - at it again
« on: September 22, 2014, 07:06:31 PM »
4 days left on the Kickstarter

here's what you get for $100 (so far...)

The key to surviving this site is to not say something which ends up as someone's tag line - Steelgrave

"their citizens (all of them counted as such) glorified their mythology of 'rights'...and lost track of their duties. No nation, so constituted, can endure." Robert Heinlein, Starship Troopers

I bought a single from that line this summer.

Actually, I didn't like the material it was made from. Difficult to file. Not too much fun to paint. I'd rather have minis made from traditional material.

Are they made from the soft-ish plastic they use for their "bones" minis?  If so, I concur....I bought a bones red dragon for my daughter, and it's way too bendy.  Metal or hard plastic I am good with...
Now, the problem is, how to divide five Afghans from three mules and have two Englishmen left over.

AFAIK the answer is yes. They're incredibly cheap, but not worth it IMHO.

I'm guessing these are generally meant for the recent re-release of Battletech?

Agreed.. that soft bendy plastic stuff is crap.  A hundered dollars, even for so many, wouldn't be enticing.  :knuppel2:

+1 I'm really glad I didn't pony up for any of the kickstarters they did.
