Reaper is over $2 million on Kickstarter.

Yeah… $2 million.

If you want in, there’s still a little over a day to go.

    Currently, a $100 pledge will get you 221 minis. That’s going to go up in a few hours, I think!

  • The Reaper Kickstarter has been a wild ride!

    It is tracking close to $30k an hour and should hit it’s next stretch sometime tonight. That would bring the total number of miniatures up to 225 for $100. If this didn’t sound amazing enough, some of these miniatures are giants, golems and other larger miniatures.

    There are also a bunch of options you can purchase like a $25 dracoliche. From the images, this may be one of the largest dragons available on the market. Though not as huge, my favorite option is the steampunk clockwork dragon. I can’t wait to add this to my Savage Worlds Ripper campaign!

    241 minis and counting for 100 bucks. This is the best value in a kickstarter project I’ve ever seen.

    Sorry typo … 221 … though I think it is about to indeed hit 225 and with tomorrow yet to go, more people deciding to buy in on another kickstarter account for a second vampire level. It could hit 241 minis for 100 by the end of it 🙂

      Why would you need another Kickstarter account for another Vampire level pledge? Couldn’t you just double your pledge amount in the Pledge Manager ? $200 with the Vampire selected ?

        Yes, you can.

      You can not do that in Kickstarter. You can just add 200 bucks and hope they let you do it in the reaper manager once it is online. I didn’t want to risk it. Many other kickstarters have limits per account, that is the main reason that I have multiple accounts, as I have more than one account I just did it cleanly so I have purchased 2 vampire levels and then all my add-ons. I’m sure that if you put 200 bucks in they’ll let you get more in their cart system once it is up though.

      As usual though typical internetz … focus on the details and try to prove people wrong. You get bonus points for that?

  • I keep thinking that although this is awesome, won’t it effectively torpedo any future demand from their fanbase because everyone walks away with such a truck-load of great figures?

    • It will, except for those who are broke, like me, who will pick up blisters here and there at the LGS.

        not really, many of these backers are first time miniatures painters who probably wanted to use minis for a while but were unable to afford it. i know i never really had a collection for fantasy rpgs before this. but now that i will have them i’m starting to think of all these great ways to use them, in fact there are many options i want double of or cant afford at the moment that i will pick up from an FLGS. if anything this is creating much more demand in the long run.

    This was an amazing kickstarter campaign … so happy with it! Though I have to say at the end of it I’m a little sad about that last stretch goal. A PDF book … sort of like the knitted sweater from grandma on Xmas morning … :/ That said holy crap this is going to be like xmas when all this stuff arrives!!

  • lordofexcess

    I hope they do a special end of campaign reward of some kind … I’d love to be proven wrong on the PDF book thing 🙂 Honestly though they clearly started kind of running out of stuff to do. You can even tell on their graphics they just started repeating that last one over and over. I don’t think in their wildest dreams they expected this thing to hit this big. They just kept piling on the minis … it was just too good to not jump in with both feet on.

    Gorgeous stuff keeps on getting unlocked. The PDFs were a bit of a dud IMHO, but the familiars, the skeletal dragon and the 8″ Cthulhu are all mighty sweet. The clock is ticking, with less than an hour to go.
