RPG miniatures Kickstarter hits $1M

Matt writes in with news of the Reaper Miniatures Bones Kickstarter, which has hit an eyepopping $1M with five days to spare. Reaper makes paintable RPG miniatures and paints, and they're rather good (I have several sugrued to the top of my monitor, bought expertly painted at the Orcs Nest in Covent Garden).

Matt sez, "Even if you just want paints it's a great deal. The paint sets are $18 more for a set of 12, which is half or less what you pay retail. For minis the $100 is up to 182 plastic minis. Reapers claim, and the reviews agree, that their products are flexible hard to break and don't need primer (though you can use it). Among the minis there are some that are steampunk (the Chronoscope minis). Who wouldn't want a cybernetic gorilla? There are pirates and horror as well. You can also add for a little more cash a clockwork dragon, a jabberwocky, and a set including Cthulhu."

Some of the highest pledge levels include minis cast in sterling silver, as well as original molds.

  1. This is probably the best price you are ever  going to get on quality paints, miniature cases or minis. Those big dragon minis retail for $70 in metal.

    I own and have painted a bunch of the currently released Bones minis and they hold up to all of Reaper’s claims.  Best part about the deal is that since they only cost about 2 bucks retail, you can test for yourself before jumping in whole hog.

    As a company Reaper has great customer service, free shipping, and their own youtube channel where they explain how they make their miniatures and how they run their business.

  2. This is great value! At the Vampire level you currently get 182 mini’s, and that number rises as more pledges are made. Amazing! If you like mini’s, now’s the time to strike!
    Share this, tweet it, like it, spread the word ppl! :D

  3. While I don’t have any of their minis, I have many of their paints.  Easily comparable to any of the “bigger” names, with a more varied palette.

  4. At one point, their paints had a plastic skull inside to shake em up with. Do they still do?
    Love their mini’s.

  5. Rackham and the Confrontation line should have done this. Gorgeous mini’s from France.
