Reaper KS article @ Wired.com

Recommended Posts

Not sure how many people saw the article but I scoured the forum and didn't see anything posted about it so here you go if you missed it. I'm just going to post the link (hopefully) so you can head there yourself and save some space here. It's a great, albeit short, piece about the impact Reaper's KS is having on the RPG industry and what it says for the future of the gaming market. Great job guys!! http://www.wired.com/design/2012/08/reaper-miniatures-bones-kickstarter-success/

What About Bob posted it in the KS discussion thread

 

Another Wired News article.

 

This one is a bit of a Post Mortem as they give Bones the "Kickstarter of the Week" award and talk a bit with Ed.

Good article though. Interesting to note that all but 2 of the top KS projects were gaming related (Neil Gaiman;s wife's music thingie, and the fancy watches. The Order of the Stick thing was technically comics, but it;s a D&D comic, so still gaming IMO)

And the iPhone dock makes 3.

 

I think the main advantage of the gaming ones though is how little lead time they take compared to other similar projects that produce a consumer good. If I recall correctly, Reaper spent about a month in preparation for this Kickstarter. I'm guessing ones like the Pebble watch take a lot longer. I'm betting that with the higher funding rates, we'll be getting a lot more interesting non-gaming ones in the future.

      I painted most of these figures quickly or experiment when I did so. The exception is the reaper figure. I didn't really paint his face with too much detail, you can't see it due to the hat and what I did paint is sufficient (white eyes, basic colour variation on skin).

      They look better in person (I swear, the light makes the skin look washed out more than it is, plus the hair has darker shadows.)

       
      Feedback and Critiques are welcome and appreciated.

      This is my first mini painting, just finished it tonight. I have a lot to learn, especially the correct way to dry brush. But I followed a Reaper paint kit on the steps for their minis and this is what I came up with.
       
      Once I get the hang of the minis themselves I'd like to learn to make custom bases, this one just looks awful as is.
       
      For some reason I can't get the picture to show the color true either, it's a much more grayish blue than this bright color that is shown.
       
      All in all, I'm pleased with its turn out.

      Pulled this guy out of the current round of the Box of Goodwill and painted him up over the course of two evenings. 
       

       

       

       
      I apologize for the low quality photos, but I've had such low drive to get pictures taken lately that I just wanted to break the ice and get the ball rolling.

      Just painted a few figures.
      First up is an Alligator from Wizkids.
      His base is just under 5cm in diameter

       
      Then some sort of larva, which I like to think of as a kind of "baby mothra" - also from wizkids.
      It's coloring is based (roughly) off a real-life caterpillar.

       
      Lastly, a couple of Cave Worms (Giant Leeches, #44031, Reaper).
