Promotional Ninja Mini for Throne of Darkness, 2001, Sculpted by Sandra Garrity

Recommended Posts

Can you please tell me the scale for this mini?

 

I caught the ninja unsuccessfully attempting invisibility from the partially painted merchant's henchmen ( RMI 02548) for size comparison.

Well, back then RP was 25mm & while Reaper's were never that small (with the exception of Rogar.....:rock:), the earlier DHL line was closer to that then these days. If stacked 2 figures on top of each other I'd say he is 50mm or so.

 

Good looking figure. One I've never seen before.

Reaper also cast a set of promo minis (5) for Gauntlet Legends...

 

I guess you can tell which one was my favorite.

 

Dessert Mummy, Valkyrie, Wizard, Archer, and Fire Beast were all sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.  It is really fantastic how each mini is labeled with its name on the base.

I always cringe at minis that are packaged loosely in a blister pack.

When I look at multipacks of figures inside a blister pack, with all the bent swords, arms, and other flanges, it suddenly occurred to me how sucky long distance space travel is going to be on the first Mars expedition astronauts...

      Wanted to pick up the decent board game because of the miniatures but I wasn't sure about their scale, I've heard they where 1/72 scale and I've also heard that they where a bit on the bigger side so I was wondering if anyone could post some pics so I can see the size comparison between the decent minis and other lines of miniatures.

      Goal
       
      The purpose of this thread is to gather in one place all the visual answers to the oft recurring question, “How big is Reaper miniature __ __ __ __ __ ?”
       
      That question comes up about once a week; but always about different models. This thread is meant to serve as a place for those foolish kind souls who decide to answer in detail with a photograph to post their work. 
       
       
      Guidelines for such photographs
       
      “...Posed in front of an inch or centimeter grid, and / or with a ruler laid out in front of, above, or behind them, and / or next to other Miniatures for comparison...” Comparison pics are the most useful because the numerical height of a model doesn't always tell you how bulky it is, or how exaggerated the features might be. Common objects like paint dropper bottles, figure bases, and specific Miniatures like Sir Forscale (76543) can acquaint the viewer with size of a new Mini, especially while standing on a grid. The best comparison shots are like police line-ups: several miniatures side-by-side in front of an easily-read scale.
       
      @Pingo @redambrosia and @lowlylowlycook contributed most of the wording in the preceding paragraph (which I edited a bit).

      Greetings,
       
      I was wondering if anyone might be able to give me some advice, please? I have a friend who is playing Tomb Kings in Warhammer Fantasy Battle, and was hoping to field some Sepulchral Stalkers:
       
      https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/warhammerfb/images/4/4e/Sepulchral_Stalkers_Tomb_Kings_8th_Edition_Miniatures.jpg
       
      However, he has been unable to obtain the original figures, since GW discontinued the TK line, so we have been discussing how I might create some, and are currently thinking of using the following:
       
      Body: http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/bones%20snake/sku-down/77321
       
      Tops:

      http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/egypt%20bones/sku-down/77340
       
      Before I go buying these and then hacking them apart, is there anyone out there who has all three and might be willing to post a photo of how they match up next to each other for scale, please? I'm also open to suggestions for other sources of snake bodies if the size match is better. I've contemplated the following, for example, but again am not sure how the sizes would match up:
       
      http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/bones%20snake/sku-down/77393
       
      http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/bones%20snake/sku-down/77117
       
      http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/bones%20snake/sku-down/77153
       
      Thank you very much!

      This is a scale question. Specifically on the big guys in the back. When I had started roughing out the wireform and slapping a little base putty on them, I had the idea of Trolls in armor. Now that I'm looking at them compared to some reaper conversions, I'm thinking they might end up having to be giants, demons, or something else. What do you think would fit for those figs at the scale they are? Prefer DnD themes if you think Troll wouldnt work. Also, open to weird fantasy creatures as long as they fit the scale and are tall and wirey.    These aren't for any game/encounter in particular, I just enjoy making stuff. L to R,
      - WIP necromancer and ghouls I'd started scratchbuilding before they got shelved. Looking forward to getting back into those.
      - Big guys in back are undecided
      - An old barbarian conversion WIP from a reaper bones
      - Recent child scratchbuild - My warg rider conversion WIP from a Reaper Bones (which has it's own post here)
      - and I believe this was a Warhammer Chaos figure that I had added tentacles to an painted about a decade ago.

      Okay gang, 
       
      Need to know if someone can help me out. I have had to settle for making paper mini's for my DnD campaign until I can get some money together and start buying more mini's from reaper. I have a scale I use for smaller figures, but I need one I can use for bigger ones. 
       
      Does anyone know the measurement of  03137: Nor'Okk, Ettin  minus the base. That way it will help me in scaling my minis for larger figures. Actually just need his height.

       
       
      Thanks
