Different SKUs and prices for same models?

Recommended Posts

Totally new to the Reaper brand, so forgive me if this is mentioned somewhere else.....

 

When I look at the Mousling line of minis,  I see a few different models that are listed as 2 separate SKUs and 2 different prices but there's zero information about them so I don't know what's up with that.  For example with SKU 03744 it's $7.49, while  —  SKU 77290 is $2.99 (Mousling Druid & Beekeeper).  I've also noticed this with the King & Princess, Ranger & Yeoman, etc.   The cheaper models are shown with a B next to them on the table as well.  The only other difference I've noticed is release dates. 

 

I saw one thread mention different SKU's for different materials but it didn't mention the 03XXX SKUs.  Can someone help me? 

 

 I want them all but don't want to buy the same thing at two different prices if they are, in fact, the same thing.

The 77xxx product line is our Bones Plastic line.

 

The 02xxx continuing through the 03xxx product lines are our Dark Heaven Metal line.

 

The material the models are made from will determine their cost. Some sculpt are indeed available in both product lines.

Some miniatures are plastic and some are pewter. Reaper has many of the same models in both materials. You probably found some plastic models (the $2.99 ones) and some pewter models (the $7.49 ones) of the same figure.

 

The “B” is a new thing in the store. It means “Bones”, which is Reaper’s name for its PVC plastic figures.

Whoa, you guys are fast!!  THANK YOU!!! 

 

 

Now, I read that the store is getting a redesign... .

 

My suggest would be to have a drop down listing the material a particular sculpt is available in, and the cost next to that.  Just my $.02.  

 

BRB buying all the things.....

      Continuing with my goal to play some Burrows and Badgers, I was working with the travel paint set on a couple of mice, a knight and a scribe....

      So this was supposed to be a Christmas gift for Mrs. Gargs but a combination of a bad shoulder injury in December and a crazy first three months of work this year resulted in these guys only just now getting done. That said, pretty happy with how they turned out given my meager skill level. Biggest problem I ran into was a nasty mold line on the snowman that just didn't want to go away. In retrospect I probably should have tried an X-Acto knife instead of just files but I was afraid of getting too much off of it so to speak. 
       
      All that said, any and all comments, critiques, constructive criticism, etc. are very welcome as I continue to try to improve! Hope you enjoy!

      So I have the holiday mouslings that I am currently working on and as I envision the base for them, I keep coming back to the idea of something like a park bench to put on the base. However, I can't find a bench that is even remotely the proper scale. Has anyone ever seen one somewhere? As always, any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
       
      Cheers,

      So this is my Super Secret Christmas Project for Mrs. Gargs (don't worry, this isn't all she's getting).
       

       
      Holiday Mouslings wonderfully sculpted by Gene Van Horne.

      I'm going to be giving this a go as a stocking stuffer for Mrs. Gargs. Now, I have no hope in heck of matching the beautiful paint job seen here, in fact, I'll be thrilled with a high table top quality on this as I'm just still new at this and don't get near enough time to paint as much as I'd like to in order to improve. That said, I do think I can at least get a halfway decent job done on this (by my standards anyway). However, it won't be without its challenges. In fact, I've identified three major hurdles already:
       
      1. The Super Secret. You see, my painting desk happens to be the dining room table and sits roughly 15 feet away from where Mrs. Gargs is usually sitting while I paint, and we very much have an open floor plan. So, keeping it a secret will be the first hurdle. I will at least have a decent amount of time on Saturday while she is at work in which to get a good start, but I am very much a slow painter, so in addition to trying to do the best I can, I will also likely be trying to get stuff done quickly.
       
      2. Ummm, yeah, there's a snow man. He's white. I haven't ever gotten a handle on white (admittedly still new). No getting around though, gonna have to give white a go. (Yeah, sorry, not gonna do a yellow snow man ;P).
       
      3. Basing. I'd love to do something a little fancier than the stock photo, but that's probably the best I can hope for. I may have to go searching for the main piece of base though as I don't think these guys are all going to fit on a 50 mm base, which is the largest I have at the moment. I'd gladly sculpt something (and will consider any and all suggestions) but the next thing I sculpt will pretty much be the first. That said though, for using snow on a base (I have some snow flock from Army Painter) do you normally put down a layer of green stuff for the ground, or just throw it on the plastic/wooden base directly?
       
      At any rate, I strongly encourage/appreciate/request/etc. any and all feedback along the way. Criticisms, critiques, suggestions, etc. Its all good. One of the things I hope to accomplish out of this is actually improving! And if I pick up some new skills along the way, even better! So don't hold back, I'm going to be trying a lot of new stuff along the way here, so I really do appreciate any comments and feedback!
       
      As always, thanks in advance!

      So, as many of you may know, Mouse recently acquired a number of mouslings thanks to a couple of very generous benefactors and one ninja. 
       

       
      Obviously, these Mouslings need some painting love. So, here it is. This is my project WIP for my mousling collection. 
       
      Also, critiques, comments, and advice all appreciated! :D
