To help everyone planning on attending ReaperCon I am starting a list of approved an unapproved companies we will take metal in trade for during ReaperCon.

Metal in trade is something we will only do in person. Trading IS limited to ReaperCon, so if you are planning to attend, please feel free to bring scrap with you.

I do not know every company out there, and have never seen the production metal of at least half of the companies I am aware of so this will be an evolving list. If you don't see a company listed, post the name and we will research them and if we can't turn anything up, bring it with you to ReaperCon and we will see at that time.

This list is NOT every manufacturer, it is only the ones we have had direct contact with their production pieces and could remember as of this typing.

oh and one more thing, I'm going to assume you want to keep that metal separate to make it easier to identify?

Thanks for doing this, it will clean a little bit more out of the drawers that I no longer have the desire to paint in exchange for more Reaper goodness :)

No rush on this one as I won't be headed to Denton anytime soon, but I've got a bunch of metal stands from Agents of Gaming (AOG) Babylon 5 line that I could trade in, if it qualifies.

I PMed Ed about this when Kit or Gus said that other manfc would be considered this year & he said it was good to bring em in! I recall hearing Wizards used the same metal as Reaper did.

Also I see Dark Sword on the Approved list but I also see Darksword on the Unapproved list. Are these 2 seperate companies??


Kinda odd that that Mag Egos is in the listing but a few figs I have of theirs, the metal has changed colors drastically compared to say Reaper or Priv. Press figs I have.

thanks Ed & Reaper for letting us exchange other metals this year, helps get rid of the figs that were just gathering dust on my shelves.

best,



They are a Pulp/Swashbuckling type figure company bought by Old Glory (spun off by or poss. just working with) about 6-7 years ago. Essentially that are the not-so-historical arm of Old Glory.

They have some nice minis (plus some odd/poor sculpts), but their horse drawn vehicle line of resin & metal models are fabulous.

If you are not part of the solution... You're part of the precipitate.
