I need help sorting out some minis to use use in the Warlord tournament at ReaperCon. I just know that in my mountain of unpainted lead there is at least one Warlord army. I know I will need to use some proxy models and that those need to be other Reaper Minis.

 

The problem is in some cases I am no longer certain whether some of these guys are a Reaper model or OMM. I could use some help with identification of the minis in the pics that follow:

 

P1C-122.jpg

 

The army I have the most (authentic Warlord) figs for is Reven. Some of the winged guys above are candidates to proxy as harpies.

 

P1C-123.jpg

 

Is that a Reaper minotaur? I am pretty sure the ogre is one of Reaper's.

 

P1C-124.jpg

 

I am hoping the first three are Reaper and not GW beastmen. The rest of these are candidates to proxy as either bugbears or beastmen.

 

Suggestions for which of the above could be proxied for what and/or model numbers would be very helpful. Also, definitive info that mini-X came from non-Reaper source-Y would be just as good.

Well on the minis with integral bases look on the bottom. Reaper Minis all are stamped with RM, Specifically All in the first pic are Reaper Minis. Pic 2 only the Ogre and the Gargoyle in the middle are Reaper. In Pic 3 all but the monkey with the sword are Reaper. I just searched the online catalog over on the front page to be sure.

Thanks Psyberwolfe.

 

That Ape with Sword is super-glued to that base. Looking for markings will be tricky.

What faction are you looking to play? I have a couple loaner armies.

 

I was looking at playing the Reven Army because The Lead Mountain contained a lot of Reven stuff. Here is a link to the post in the Reven thread, But, I would not say no to driving a loaner Army around.

Like CB, I'll have a loaner army or three with me at RCon as well. I can usually be counted on to be packing Reptus, Elves, and Crusaders.

I think my army list is set but I found a few stragglers it would be nice to have an ID on.

The middle guy is the strongest candidate for an actual Reaper mini. However it looks like someone <_< may have filed the underside of his base smooth (did check for a tiny RM). I pretty sure I used the guy with the round shield and the big sword as Varaug once upon a time. If this photo is too small I can choose a different re-sizing option and try again.

The middle one is a Reaper Bugbear. The two Orc shamans are from the old WOTC Chainmail range. I'm using one as a proxy for Ombur, in my Reven force.

 

The model with the spiked shoulder pads and shield and falchion combo is a Chronopia Ogre. It looks like he'd fit into your force as he's not as big as the Warlord Ogres.

 

The one on the left I haven't seen before.

Thank you. Four out of five, I had some luck with the guy on the left (he wasn't glued into his slotta base as well as I first thought) anyway getting him free plus some reading glasses revealed "WOTC 2002" on the tab. Whatever he is he's no good for an official event. BTW his weapon is converted: the axe is not the original equipment.

That Bugbear you identified made it into the army. He will get to impersonate Korbunk (Korbulg?) the Bugbear Bully. I have the real KBB but like Bloodmane he is too big for his base and I didn't want to hassle with it.

The Bugbear Bully model does take some clippers and work to fit on the base. The Bloodmane model just doesn't seem right on the 1" base. Se la vie.

I tried taking a better picture of these guys tonight. I don't know if I ever did a Showcase thread for these guys or a work in progress thread.  I used the search function to find this thread.  Anyway, new picture (but it is huge; so spoiler tags):

This is not the quite real color of things. I fiddled with global image enhancing options in the photo fixing app (PS Express) that also created the collage. It looked interesting this way.

I had another go at shooting these soldiers. On a different background. Less photo manipulation F/X. And trying a new app to resize the pictures.

That is a much faster upload / much smaller images. I had to get a new app for this. Only one of these minis has what might be considered a tabletop paint job. Detail of him below:

      This came across my newsfeed on Facebook and I thought the minis looked interesting.

      Been awhile since I posted anything so posting the work I've done since last post.

      My time has been limited as of late, so when I get to paint I tend to overwhelm myself a bit. Lots of progress but nothing finished!

      About this project
      Our continued goal is to create the next-level of miniatures for your games and painting. More detailed, more dynamic, more characterful and better than before. We are pushing things forward. Because, as every painter or gamer knows - these are not toys; this is miniature art!
      It has been a while since nearly 1,000 kind gamers worldwide helped us bring to life  TC: Fantasy Dungeon Terrain, back on KS, in 2014. Now we have returned, we are ready to raise the bar once again with a new range of models. With these, we have the scope to really show off how proper resin models should look. Welcome, adventurer, to the Minotaur Horde!
      A lot of companies focus on budget value, and that's good, if good value is what you want. More models for your money, buckets of models cast in PVC plastic, spin-cast 'restic' models. Cheaper production, corners cut. You get more mediocre models than you could ever paint or really appreciate. Familiar, right? I know ;) 
      Now these Minos are a little bit different, these are the kind of high detail miniatures which will get a "Wow" from your gamer friends when you reveal them. Miniatures which you will want to paint and will want to keep in your collection forever.
      We are making miniatures with the best blend of new and old. New, cutting-edge 3D Printing for the sharpest details around. Old, tried and tested vacuum casting, the same method perfected over the last 30 years, for the best quality cast models. 
      Our last KS received high praise on the model's quality and phenomenal detail. But this time we really have the scope to spare no expense and truly show off what we can do on these fearsome Minotaurs.
      Minotaurs are the perfect race to begin on our quest to modernize, since only a few of them are needed to make a warband. We can lavish attention on a dozen or so models and produce a concise campaign with a quick delivery.
      On one side, there is the production; over the years, Zealot has built a reputation for making stunningly detailed models. We have worked with many big-name miniature companies, producing their models, all behind the scenes. If you have supported many miniature kickstarters before, you likely have some of our casts already! 
      But the awesome level of detail possible is all moot, without some stunningly detailed artwork for us to produce! ...
      So we have teamed up with Alexei Popovici, who is an industry sculpting veteran and one of the most talented model sculptors working today. He not only produces great sculpts which looks superb as a render on your huge PC screen - but it transfers well into an actual model, where all the details are clear and possible to paint.
       
      Superb renders indeed!  
       
       Choose your miniatures from these core selections. If you wish to pick them as further Add-Ons, the cost is displayed on each image.
      (For the Adventurers, there are more views of castings coming soon)
