What & when was your very first order from Reapers online store?

Couldn't find anything on Reaper, but according to Miniature Giant, they were launched in 2004.

 

When in doubt go to the source! Anne started in spring of 2003 and didn't begin work on the MSPs until 6-12 months after she started and there was at least 6 months of R&D. ReaperCon I was in 2004, which took place in then new building. I knew for sure that I came away with at least some samples in 2005 so she thinks that 2005 is probably the actual release date of the MSP line.

 

I didn't order directly from Reaper until 2003 because my local hobby shop, at the time, carried the full line of Reaper Miniatures and the Pro Paints.

I must have been talking about it with Anne then as she worked on it then.  Anyway, I bought them all as soon as they came out.  I still have a bunch with the tape labels.

Welcome aboard!

A "newb" that's put out more finished minis in two weeks than some of us have all year (yup, comparing their army of CAVs to my handful of minis finished)

I had just ordered a little less than $200 in paint from the FLGS, but the single bottles were the ones they couldn't get from their supplier (but showed up like two days after I placed this order).  I went with the extra triads for the free shipping.

Order #45161 Placed 04/27/09, $39.00
Items:
RC09-L: ReaperCon '09 Ticket, plus Adult Large Shirt (39.00) x1

 

 

Interestingly this orders status still shows it's being processed. All other orders show they have been filled.

I'm pretty sure this was actually filled back in '09.

First miniature order placed with anyone. I think I only knew about Reaper at the time other than GW and Privateer Press which my FLGS sells. It was placed a month or two after I the night I started playing D&D for the first time and was given my first mini. That mini was an unpainted Reaper and when I was ready for more, I decided to check out the website on the package.

My earliest in the online store goes back to 2009.  I know I'd been buying Reaper minis long before then, but mostly through FLGS.

My first order from the website wasn't too long ago. I needed generic monster dudes for the first session of my Serpent's Skull game. Even now Elanter the Lost Prince is being painted up to be my character for my current game. Ah, fondness...

 

Order #352083 Placed 08/02/17, $44.08

Items:
01607: Elanter, Lost Prince (0.00) x1
77025: Giant Spider (2.49) x1
77053: Zombies (3) (5.49) x1
77125: Vermin: Scorpions (2.49) x1
77159: Ghast (2.49) x1
77228: Chthon (2.79) x1
77240: Skeleton Guardian Sword (3) (5.99) x1
77242: Skeleton Warrior Sword (3) (5.99) x1
77260: Ape Demon (2.79) x2
77393: Avukavali, Snake Demon (3.79) x1
89042: Red Mantis Assassin (2.99) x2

 

I bought from my FLGS ever since 2003. I worked for my FLGS from 2007 to 2009, definitely a reason to continue buying from brick and mortar stores. But my FLGS doesn't stock the variety of Bones I needed as a GM. And still "need" as a player :ph34r:
