Bones.... Has all the markings of a huge success. Distributors and game stores can't keep them in stock. The reviews of the product are glowing. Demonstrations involving Bones are generating sales in other related products. And that's with only twelve figure packs available in the line! I picked up a pack of kobolds and couldn't be happier with my purchase. Cheap, great quality, durable, no primer, what's not to like? I painted them up, and was so happy I bought another package. I then took the painted and unpainted set to my next DnD game session and everyone was stunned. We had an encounter that involved kobolds and so out they came. When one kobold died we switched it out with an unpainted figure, little kobold corpses everywhere. It was glorious! My DM was so pleased with the idea of switching out painted for unpainted that he gave me the cash to pick up two more packs so I can have 12 painted and 12 unpainted kobolds. And as cheap as they are no one even raises an eyebrow. Who can complain about 6 minis for less than what one drink would cost me at Starbucks?
BRAVO REAPER!! BRAVO!!
Next I'll be picking up the Orc packs, then skeletons, then ... kobold archers? (he says hopefully) goblins, trolls, brigands, militia, lizardmen, wolves, bears, ......... ohh the possibilities are endless!
12 figure packs are woefully inadequate, I am greedy and want more! I dream of shelves lined with Bones monsters awaiting their death at the hands of heroic adventurers!
I was a Reaper fanboy before, now I am a slave to Reaper and all she does to feed my inner geek and I couldn't be happier about it.
Don't stop now Reaper. You have made something really special. I eagerly anticipate the release of future Bones figures.
Thank You Reaper, Thank you.
Well then, since I was invited, I think I will.
