Buy direct from Reaper or local Hobby/game shop?


Recommended Posts

And to re-iterate, if your FLGS is having a hard time getting stock, they can contact us directly.

 

To me, that is a MUCH preferable option to a customer buying direct from us - it helps keep the community going and your FLGS in business. Sure, I want to sell you a mini, but I want a healthy community and hobby first and foremost. The healthier the system that supports our hobby is, the better for all of us that paint, collect, and game!

 

Plus it is good for Reaper as a display of minis at your local FLGS may find them new fanatics. Personally, I didn't get into Reaper minis until I experienced their booth at GenCon. The variety and quality of figures blew me away.

 

... That and Raperbryan's choice of hat!

Update: called my FLGS, been almost three weeks now since I placed my order, and they said they got 1 of my orders in, the vulture, actually ordered familar pack 8, has vulture in it. when I got there it was wrong order, it was just some vulture dude with a sword, he was cool but not what I ordered, so she said she whould look through the other stuff that had come in so I figured I go see if they had any new stock in, they did. To my surprise, they had the biker dude stubbs I ordered on the rack, look more and the familar pack 8 was there also, I just started laughing everyone in the store looked at me, so I WENT UP TO THE GIRL RUNNING THE STORE AT THE TIME AND SAID HERE'S MY STUFF IS WAS ON THE RACKS FOR SALE BACK THERE. So they forgot to contact me, 2 they put the stuff I ordered on there racks, no real reason on what happened oh well think I'm done with them now! oh well, just bought the new paint line for DP9,ordered direct from reaper on Wed. got here today Sat. I think trying to help some stores is just a big headache, oh well again, just makes me alittle sad, the days of realible FLGS in my area are gone online all the way.

I started this forum couple days ago thanks for all the responds, I'm still waiting for the miniatures been over two weeks now, there excuse, forgot to order it, told me sometime these week, to bad just ordered that new paint line for DP9, DIRECTLY from Reaper should be here Monday or Tuesday next, oh ya. Wish I lived close to the Reaper store, if it were two hours away I would drive there just to look drull over all the kool mini's, oh well I live in Utah, long ways away, need to come to your Reaper con one of these days

 

Depending on where you live in Utah there are some good game stores. If you live on the wasatch front, there is one in Midvale off State Street and 72nd, south of Fashion Place Mall called Hastur Games and hobbies that has a huge stock of reaper minis and the other is up in Clearfield a little off I -15 called EndZone, the figs are behind the counter but they have a lot.

 

Ther a re quite a few more listed on http://www.reapermini.com/StoreLocator but I havent been to them.

 

I make it a point to go to the local stores when I visit my folks.

I'm almost afraid to ask... but I must. I have no specific recollection of wearing any awesome or crazy hats... what was I wearing?

Well, I tried to order the Master Series Paint Set from my FLGS a week and a half ago. I even told him that he could order straight from Reaper. But he chose to go through his distributor who had to make a "special order". Needless to say its going to be at least another week before I can get them. I think I'll just order through Reaper from now on. I am way to impatient for this.

I believe it was a fedora but I could be mistaken. The only hats I know are toques and baseball caps. It stood out since we were indoors in the middle of summer. However, you were fantastic to me and my friends so, if you want to wear a hat, you wear a hat! I am not going to judge.

Thanks Urber-Mensch I'll check out Hastur games, hope the prices are MSRP.

 

Hastur should be MSRP, and it's a huge game store, if you're not careful you'll spend a lot more then you were expecting.

 

If you live in the valley BlackFyre has a great selection of Reaper but the Keep and Epic don't.

He's a Texan hip hop artist known for wearing hats. He also wears gold chains around his neck with dozens of Reapers minis hanging from them.

 

Picture a hobbit wearing a giant's charm bracelet ;)

 

Either that or I made a typo!!!

A day and half is crap? Geez. I cant imagine how many orders they have to process in a day. I think a day and half is great shipping, its a heck of a lot faster than I will get it from a FLGS.

 

I'll happily take a day and a half shipping over the alternative. I think Reaper is awesome and they have the best customer service of any company I've ever dealt with.
