Reaper's Role in 3d Printing?


Recommended Posts

Plus, you have to ask whether Reaper would even own the rights to sell those STLs (this is a debate going in the sculptor community).  Reaper doesn't buy the mini from the sculptors, they buy the copyright.  That copyright may not, legally speaking, extend to mediums that were not in the original agreement, or maybe it does.  The thing is this is a question they will have to answer before going down that road.

 

Personally, I think they do have the right to do so, at least they do with mine from the assumption I made when selling them my sculpts; though I know that not all sculptors agree with me on that.

I think this would be a useful Boneyard replacement for some things.. especially older OOP minis.. it might be a way to offer things like the a new Shipwreck maiden.. although I think that Bones USA might also give them some advantages to offer Print on Demand or take like an old Warlord army and convert it to a modular Bones USA army..  or the weapon sprues..

Now that's interesting.  Imagine Reaper selling the physical model and the sculptor selling the STL.

That has actually how some companies are.. Charles Agius has the right to sell some of his STLs he made for RoboRocket and a couple other people, but Mirico and Limbo bought the work outright and own all rights to it.
