  4. FitzBones: Scythe Wraith

    The dirty high contrast works well and the rust is really good. I have some of these wraiths and like the sculpts a lot.

    Looks good, the colors work well.

    Finished this Reaper figure recently and thought I would stop in to share. I think it's the first I've posted here but I may have some more in a bit. Started this ten years ago or more and it languished all this time in a WIP box. My hat off to Bobby Jackson on this one, it's one of my favorites from him. That scary, hideous face is awesome as are his knock-kneed gait and his little rat friends. A classic vampire of the nosferatu ilk, or "necrarch," in Warhammer Vampire Counts lore. I really took my time with this figure back then and it's up to my "competition standard." When coming back to finish it off I mainly had to just decide not to do a few bells and whistles I had originally intended like freehand on the red fringe, and do the metals. I take pleasure in the distressed ragged bottom of the cloak, the little green gem, the eyes, and the shading of his fingernails. He is the leader of an undead warband, BTW, and his minions are coming up soon. Three ghouls (Reaper Ben Siens ones) and two giant black dogs (Siens hell hounds) are already done and awaiting varnishing.

    It's wonderful, I would love to have it in my collection. Colors, eyes, base... so many great aspects to this.

    Any word on the street date for the recessed, round, "RPG" bases? Excited and waiting on them for some projects. Hope they are not too far off! Reaper, if you're staggering the releases please consider putting these next as they are the ones that are unique and a bit of a game changer.

    We're after the March 30 release date and 25mm round gaming bases are in the store, but the other bases aren't up or listed in the new release page. Hope to see them up soon! :) @Darsc Zacal: Doh, thanks!

    Anyone know the release date on these?

    I have been wishing for the exact design of the "RPG" bases for years! I have hunted for many hours on the web and believe I have a listing of essentially every kind of plastic base offered, and while there are "deep-recess" 1" square bases to be had I have never seen the like in round varieties despite there being, to my mind anyway, an enormous market need for them. Well done Reaper for meeting the need! It can't be overestimated how many hours this is going to save in clipping bases down so they don't make an ugly mound. It's really about time. I've literally lost sleep many nights trying to come up with solutions to the problem of fat integral bases. I can't wait for the release and I'm already gathering all the figures with fat integral bases in eager anticipation. :) It's funny how a release of humble plastic bases can make me happier than any miniature released in the past year or more! But perfectly logical in the light of those hours I mentioned. As it looks like others are saying, the price point on the smaller sized bases isn't aligned with the market very well. I expect about twice that number of bases for the price point. I'm sure to use the 1" RPG bases for integrally based figures and the larger ones for all kinds of figures but will go elsewhere for smaller bases for other kinds of figures. Also on my wishlist are 30mm and 20mm "RPG" bases. Maybe the 30mm don't fit with the concept of these, which is to suit D&D/Pathfinder, but 20mm is a standard size base in the prepaint D&D figure world so it would be a logical addition. Anyway, hooray! I can't say enough about how happy I am. I can't be the only one gushing about these, though, right? Do the rest of you agree how awesome these are?
