Reaper Miniatures to make pre-painted plastic minis!

Reaper miniatures announced yesterday that is will start selling pre-painted plastic minis and sell them in their standard NON-BLIND purchase format. This is interesting news for custom-makers.

Available this June Legendary Encounters™ initial release will include: Undead and Orc warriors of various types, an Ogre, Troll and Minotaur. Like our Dark Heaven Legends miniature line, future releases into Legendary Encounters™ will include every type of creature imaginable.

I wonder what scale they will use. I assume this is to compete with D&D minis so they should be the same scale.

Does anyone know what scale Reaper uses for their metal minis?

Hopefully this starts a trend. I always hated blind purchases!

I agree this is great news. I wonder what the pricing will be. This could be a nice test of the validity of "Merric's Law" (i.e. pre-painted plastic minis can only have 2 of the following: (1) non-blind purchase, (2) low prices, and (3) wide variety).

Wide variety will come with time. I am thinking they are going for low cost, and non blind. that is Reapers way. They will probably start with "units" of armies that are generic to cross platform games. Which is just real good news.

I hope the humans are to scale with the HS figures, because Reaper makes some really stylish human and elf figures.

I'd love to see something like this sold painted:



I wish they had some photos up to give us a sample of what to expect. As usual:

They sure do. The nice thing is that company is supposedly not far away from where I live!

You can find Reaper figures pretty easily in Texas.

That is some great news! Reaper Minis are excellent figures and I'm looking forward to seeing their prepainted, plastic line!

Thanks for posting the good news, Kepler!

My guess is that the plastic figures will be in scale with their standard 28/30mm lines. Hopefully they will use some of their existing sculpts.

Newb.

Absolutely! I've been using Reaper minis for years in my Dungeons & Dragons games. Their figures have immaculate detailing and awesome designs. This has the makings of a fine trend indeed.

Wow! That's freaking awesome! I'm gonna have to camp out at their warehouse. Hopefully they'll have some ready for Reapercon in May!

I've always been crazy, but it's kept me from going insane.
