I have no need for gaming miniatures these days but even my heart starts racing when I look at the $100 package from Reaper Miniatures’ Kickstarter. They’re using Kickstarter to finance a slew of new molds for plastic miniatures. Molds for plastic have always been way more expensive to produce than molds for metal, which is why few minis companies can justify making plastic figures. But with this Kickstarter, Reaper is getting to make a ton of molds — and once those are made, the figures are way cheaper than metal to produce.
All of which is to say: for $100, you’ll get dozens — I think almost a hundred — kickass gaming miniatures via Reaper’s Kickstarter.
They’ve raised more than a million dollars this way. All the plastic molds they’re financing can transform their whole business. This is a great use for Kickstarter and an incredible bargain for gamers.
And it all ends in just a few days.
