The Revenge of Reaper

photo-main

Reaper launched it’s second project this week. Predictably, it is doing gangbusters.

Reaper started the Kickstarter mini trend in a big way this time last year (and incidentally got me hooked on the crowdfunding phenomena.) In the first 8 hours the project has raised three quarters of a million dollars and defeated 25 of their stretch goals.

So far the sculpts look great, and though I certainly don’t need any more minis, Reaper will be getting at least some of my money, though perhaps not quite so much as they did last time. I do have some reservations, given that Reaper probably doesn’t need to crowdfund this line, but for the time being I’ll withhold judgement. Still – I would hate to see this become a yearly thing.

I guess this project means that I will be painting a mini a week in perpetuity. For regular readers, our Monday miniature feature is nothing new, but for any new reaper fans looking to get their fix, the full list is below. Take a look. If you are about to get a couple hundred more miniatures in 2014 it is never to early to start practicing your painting skills.

  1. Hi! I also posted this on Reaper’s KS page.

    Would it be possible to post the next 4-8 weeks of minis in advance? Maybe make it a standard part of your weekly posting? I’d LOVE to participate, but I’m a really slow painter, and a rookie on top, which makes things even slower. By knowing in advance what is coming, I can cherry-pick the minis that I want to paint in order to participate.

    Thanks!

  2. Short-term, simple stuff might be a good idea, to allow us rookies to get our feet wet. I know from experience that my first several at least are going to be pretty sad.

    I could see you getting a bunch new followers if you keep spreading the word on the KS and forums…
