    Announcing Reaper Bones Black!

    We’re excited to announce an amazing new product line for 2019 and beyond: Reaper Bones Black! Since launching our Reaper Bones miniatures in 2012, Reaper Miniatures has produced and shipped over 25 million plastic models to gamers and painters around the world. But despite the success of Reaper Bones, we continually look for ways to improve our products. We’ve taken everything that makes Reaper Bones Miniatures so successful and enhanced it. We’ve always listened to our customers, and after years of feedback, we made Reaper Bones Miniatures even better with Reaper Bones Black. • High Detail – Reaper Bones Black holds more detail and is equal to resin or metal • Rigid Material – weapons and thin parts are much more rigid and hold their shape, but still flexible enough to withstand constant handling • Improved Pigmentation – Reaper Bones Black models are tinted dark grey for ease of painting and viewing • Reduced Seam and Shift Lines - produced with high-grade steel molds, Reaper Bones Black models are cleaner, crisper, and require less cleaning But we didn’t change everything. Customers can expect the same great features with Reaper Bones Black as they do with Reaper Bones. • Amazing sculpts – created by the best artists in the gaming industry • Consumer-friendly pricing – Reaper Bones Black gives customers great value for their dollars • Wide selection – Reaper Bones Black will continue to provide consumers a variety of options to suit all types of gaming. \ • Painter Friendly – made for painters and gamers, by painters and gamers. • Ready to Paint – just a quick rinse with soap and water and you’re ready to paint • Scaled to Fit – Reaper Bones Black models are the same size and scale as all Reaper miniatures and all modern gaming models • Integral Bases – Reaper Bones Black models come with integral bases so they’re ready to play with right out of the package • Always in Stock – Reaper Bones Black models won’t go out of stock and can always be reordered. You’ve got the demand. We’ve got the supply. To launch Reaper Bones Black, we’ll be giving away nearly 150,000 free Reaper Bones Black miniatures throughout 2019. This will give painters, gamers, and retailers an opportunity to try Reaper Bones Black themselves. More details will be coming soon on www.reapermini.com Look for regular Reaper Bones Black monthly releases in spring 2019! Reaper Bones Black FAQ coming this week!
  6. So I pestered Anne Foerster on how to use the new Bones Dungeon Dwellers Paint Colors. Here's what her suggestions for use are: 09974 Dungeon Dwellers Monster Colors 09455 TROLL HIDE: This is a fantastic dark olive green with a strong yellow tone to it. It’s great for not only trolls but also lizardmen, jungle foliage and camouflage patterns. 09456 ORC SKIN: Not only good for orcs but for moss, mold, or lichen. Great to highlight grey stone where you want to suggest there might be lichen but it’s too small to paint. Also a nice color for ghoul skin! 09457 GOBLIN SKIN: Complex oranges like this are very useful for highlighting dark brown leather. Can also serve as a nice shadow color for 9459 Ogre Skin, or as a good color for a copper dragon if you’re not using metallics! 09458 KOBOLD SCALE: Great color for darker red dragons, or for demonic skin. For modern basing, it’s a great red brick color, or mix a small amount into skin tones to create weather-reddened skin shadows. 09459 OGRE SKIN: This strong ochre yellow is a good highlighter for 09455 Troll Hide or almost any other darker olive green (mix them 50:50). It can be used as a glaze to make blond hair more yellow, or serve as the base for a non-metallic gold. Great for animal or monster eyes where you are going for a golden color; highlight with a brighter yellow. 09460 GNOLL PELT: Not just for gnolls, this is also a great basing color for field grass, or a modern military/camo color. Good to mix into dark greens if you are highlighting and looking for a more natural effect. Could also be a good sickening cloth color for evil priests or undead! 09975 Dungeon Dwellers Dungeon Colors 09461 VAMPIRIC MIST: A pale grey with an indigo cast, this is a fantastic highlight for light medium and light greys if you want something more interesting than just white. Would also be a good highlight for vampiric skin! 09462 SUCCUBUS KISS: A beautiful vibrant purpley dark red. Use for dark gothic cloth, shading for almost any red you can think of, or blood spatters under moonlight. Seriously, folks, this stuff is awesome. 09463 ELDRITCH PURPLE: Good for cloth or color accents for evil wizards, necromancers, flashier rogues, or for that hot sorceress who thinks that purple is the new black. Great highlight for darker purples. Can also be used to suggest magical shadows for 09461 Vampiric Mist (mix just a little Eldritch Purple into your Mist, then apply for shading). 09464 CURSED GOLD: Fantastic for exactly what its name says; highlight with 09450 Dragon Gold. Also good for the rich gold on Egyptian-themed models, and as a darker, more moody gold for evil minis where you don’t want something really bright. 09465 SKELETON KEY: A good start for any tarnished silver metal or armor; highlight with 09454 Mithril Silver. Also could be good to suggest “magical” steel where you want it to look just a little different. 09466: DUNGEON GREY: A good dark stone color, of course, but also a great highlight for black! Could be used as an alternative for black if you wanted to suggest dark cloth that has faded slightly.

    February Bones Black Promotional Mini - Rock Troll

    There's no set standard on whether the bases will be attached or not. The Owlbear and Troll, for example, wouldn't fit in our existing packaging with the bases attached. However, the March Bones Black promo model, *will* be attached to its base and does fit into our existing packaging.

    The base is indeed separate.

    Catfolk feet?

    I'm late to the party. As usual. Glenn, thanks for chiming in here. I'd like to add this: sculpting is hard! If it was easy, we'd all be doing it. :) ZBrush is a cruel mistress too. Glenn has some new stuff that he wrapped up recently that I think everyone will enjoy.
  11. You've got your free Dungeon Dwellers. Now you need to paint them! Download our FREE painting guides today! New guides are up by award-winning painters Ian Markon, Derek Schubert, and Tish Wolter!www.reapermini.com/dungeondwellers
  12. As we mentioned in our Reaper Bones Black press release, we're launching Reaper Bones Black by giving away nearly 150,000 free Reaper Bones Black miniatures throughout 2019.

    Reaper Bones Black FREE Mini for January 2019

    Who said anything about discontinued or retired? Maybe, like an owlbear, they'll just go into hibernation for a little while.... And yes, these will be available on our UK site; pallet is on the way to Nottingham right now. All our EU/UK customers keep an eye out on the UK site for an announcement. Not even close. Big differences between those two models.

    Reaper Bones Black FREE Mini for January 2019

    Only available in January 2019. However....this model may make an appearance later this year. Somewhere. :)

    Announcing Reaper Bones Black!

    All Expansions (Dreadmere, Darkreach, Chronoscope, Lost Valley, Fan Favorites) are all in Bones Black. About half the Options are too. Give or take. Dungeon Dwellers will continue as a metal line in 2019, but it won't be the free promotional line. The new promotional line for 2019 will be announced tomorrow. Can you guess what that's gong to be?

    I don't have the date for the resin ones. And the quantities will be *ultra* low. Like, tens, not scores. Don't have prices just yet either. Probably $20 -ish. Don't quote me on quantities or prices next week. :)

    SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT...

    Johan Rumbleguts! This Special Edition miniature was crafted to help out our dear friend Jason Wiebe, who has recently undergone several major surgeries. 100% of all the monies collected from this miniature will go directly to Jason to help him with his medical bills. There will only be 1000 metal castings of this miniature ever sold. All the production molds will be sent to Jason Wiebe after all 1000 castings have been produced. Next week we will put up a very limited amount of resin castings as well. Please join us in helping out our friend Jason Wiebe! We'd like to thank Bobby Jackson for the sculpting, David Baker, Paul Figgins and the fine folks at Trenchworx for printing the model and for the resin casting, and Ben and Jeff Rodman of Fortress Figures for making the metal masters for our production molds.
