Reaper recently started up a line of polymer miniatures that are cheaper to purchase and easier to modify, but just as detailed as their line of metal miniatures. They call this new line Bones. And it’s becoming very popular. Because it takes quite a bit of time and money to add new figures to this line, as well as creating new molds for polymer versions of their existing metal minis, they decided to take it to KickStarter to raise $30,000 in order to get out about 30 models as soon as possible (check out the Bones KickStarter Project video here).
Turns out that won’t be much of a problem. As of 7:30 AM (central) this morning, they were up to $1,718,968. And there’s now a hell of a lot more than only 30 new Bones minis coming out.
The most popular pledge level is Vampire for $100. Here’s a list of rewards for the Vampire level:
And each time a new goal is met, new minis are unlocked and added to the list. It also unlocks new larger minis for an additional charge. I know Steve isn’t thrilled about the idea of more unpainted minis floating around the house, but I really want the Clockwork Dragon.
As of 7:30 am this morning, the new stretch goal is $1,790,000. Once that’s reached, it will unlock a Griffon and an Owlbear to be added to the Vampire level.
Please hurry… I’d really like a Griffon.

Woo hoo!!! I got my Griffon!
Now the new stretch goal is $1,920,000. Once that is met, all Vampire level pledgers (pledgees?) will also receive a Grave Danger set with the Vampire Lord Judas Bloodspire, a Ghast, a Death Knight, and a Lich Lord. Gee, several items that would come in handy during our current campaign.
52 hours to go!

Wow… the goal has been reached and the Grave Danger set has been added to the list. Next up are:
I’m in love with these.
The new stretch goal is $2,060,000, and I’m amazed they haven’t run out of ideas for new content yet. I’d really like to know how far ahead they planned when they realized they’d hit the original goal sooner than expected. In fact, how far in advance do they plan out either of their product lines? If I had the money, I’d have pledged $2000 in order to spend some time at Reaver and find out, but I had to do some some serious shuffling just to cover my small pledge.
They’re at $1,980,371 right now. I wonder if they’ll be able to continue upping the ante, although it could slow down now that there are less than two days left.
I hope not.
UPATED AT 5:15 PM ON FRIDAY
Only about 23 hours left. No more stretch goals are being offered, which is probably a good thing with the time being so short. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still get a hell of a deal. Seriously, the Vampire pledge level now has a shit-ton of minis. You can have paint parties and not worry about cutting them apart to experiment with modding your minis because YOU HAVE SO MANY OF THEM ALREADY! That’s where I’m going to have the most fun. That, and sending whole batches of them to my nephews to spread around the D20 love.
Take a look, you still have a few hours left.
UPATED A FEW MINUTES LATER
My mistake, there IS a new stretch goal. I’m not posting it here because I need to run and feed some cats, so do yourself a favor and CHECK IT OUT!
