Mini ID Help

Recommended Posts

I need help identifying this mini. It's a friend-commission, so I'll have to give it back after painting, but I would like to have another one for myself. The owner doesn't recall when or where he got it.

 

The base is stamped with a backwards "LAL". Possible Lance & Laser? The bottom is engraved "©RMI", or possible "©Roy" or "©Ray" and dated "04", or possible "09".

 

Thanks in advance!

I have another older Reaper mini, also labeled "RMI" on the bottom. Seems to be a thing?

Alas, the lost Exalted......

 

Can you really not order those any more?  If it weren't tax season I'd nip a couple right now...

That was a good catch. Shame those are OOP. I'd love to have that Abyssal DeathKnight.

Unfortunately, Exalted was a series made for the White Wolf Exalted RPG, and the license to make and sell expired in 2005.

Unless Reaper and White wolf set up a new licensing agreement, you'll have to scour evilbay and other resale sites if you want more.

WW recently had a Kickstarter for Exalted Third Edition, so the idea is not beyond the pale.

Yeah, but from an answer ReaperBryan posted in his AMA thread recently I understand that they're not interested in licensing deals.

And really, from what I have heard, those can be a pain in the...

 

Now they have full creative freedom. In a licensing deal, everything would have to be approved by the other part. That's time--consuming, frustrating and yeah...

There's issues with launch dates... "You can't announce or sell that mini before we release the scenario, and that has been delayed for a year"...

Reaper Mini?

 

Probably, and there's a fair chance I assigned that code.

 

Back before the Games Quarterly Catalog was started, there were many game distributors and each distributor had its own code for each manufacturer. These had a fair amount of commonality, but there were enough differences to drive the people who ordered product for stores crazy. When Mark started the GQC, he added "Standard Manufacturer Codes" to the book.

 

These started out as being codes that were common to as many distributors as possible (to limit disruption), and I can't recall how standardized they actually were in the first book. In the end, though, we set up a single three-letter code for each company. Then, as new manufacturers came into the market, we (which, since we were very small, meant "I") would give them codes. Some of these were obvious, but they couldn't be the same as any other manufacturer, so some of them were rather less so.

 

IIRC, Reaper started selling to distributors after I was responsible for the system, so that might well be the standard code I assigned. (It's long enough ago that I can't be at all sure.)

      More vintage minis from my childhood.  Been soaking a dozen or so in isopropyl  for about a week to get the 40 yr old enamel paint off them.  With much scrubbing some of them came out pretty clean!  Will post as they come along, here's one of my all-time favorites. I remember when I bought him in a little attic hobby shop in Ithaca, NY. Unfortunately I don't remember the packaging.  Such a stoic little dude...any ideas?

      After completing my Reaper training kits, I'm ready to start tackling my old 80s lead minis from my youth.  I tried painting a couple when I was twelve years old and failed so miserably I literally thought there was no way I would ever be able to even attempt this hobby and it was just better left to others with more talent.  Thanks Reaper for making the awesome training sets and helping me try again after over 35 years.  So without further ado I begin digging into my vault from the 80s.  Apologies if this forum is for Reaper products only, no insult intended.
       
      So I think this baddie might be a Ral Partha Hill Troll, but not sure. Anybody have some insight?

      Brief word of introduction. I know next to nil about CAV. My current interest in it is solely from a painting perspective. With that in mind, please excuse any blunders I make.
       
      So, I'm a painter looking for some cool stuff to paint. I see CAV's mechs. I think "I like mechs, those look cool, I think I'll grab some". Then my eyes flicker upwards towards where it says "10mm scale". I think you can see where this is going.
       
      Long story short, how big are these? It looks like they come on 1" hexes, and $4.99-$6.99 is quite a lot to charge for a small mini (in my opinion, of course).
       
      Many thanks, all!

      I expect everyone knows about this already, but in case there's any newbies here, this is kind of a 'just back it already' kickstarter. 
      Midlam has always delivered, and are way up in double digit projects by now.

      Story
      The allure of great power means that many dream of becoming fantastic wizards, but the path to becoming a Wizard is a long and gruelling one, requiring endless hours of study and personal sacrifice.   Though many may seek the path of a Wizard, few are chosen, and fewer still achieve 
      The Class of 22016AE, is unusual in that not only have all those who were inducted to become Wizard's Apprentices graduated (setting them on the first true step on the path of Wizadry), but that they have all survived to become full wizards in their own right.  Explodio in particularly had some very close calls, and Toadini proved himself surprisingly adept at extracting himself from the bellies of Giant Amphibians.
      Newly Graduated Wizards
      Welcome to a collection of 7 28mm scale wizards, for all of your fantasy adventures, from Midlam Miniatures!
      Welcome to the sequel to our very first Kickstarter, where we see how far our Wizard's Apprentices have come.
      You can also pick up the original miniatures as well if you missed out the first time around.
      The Original Class of 22016
      You can also pledge for the original set of 7 Wizard's Apprentices, either with or without their graduating counterparts.
