I have begun my third year of college, and that means only one thing: Dungeons and Dragons begins again!
This year, I am in two weekly campaigns that just started this last week. Because my friends and I all started new characters, we needed to go on a miniature hunt!
*For those new to D&D, miniatures are small statues, usually plastic or pewter that represent your character on the playmat.
I have been a frequent buyer on the online website Reaper Miniatures. They offer around 13 different brands of miniatures – from Space Cowboys, to Vampire Priestesses to Halfling Rogues – they have just about anything you need for playing any tabletop RPG.
My new Gnome model (It arrives unpainted, FYI)
Price wise, it’s pretty affordable. Shipping is cheap and the basic, single character miniatures run about $4-10 a pop. Compare that to Games Workshop where you’d spend about $20-25 for a single figure (with shipping).
Reaper has their own paint brand. I do think Citadel paints dry nicer overall, but I have about 30 colors from the Reaper line, and they suit my needs just fine and they have a very large palette available.
My new Vryloka Model for my Cosmic Sorceress
I have been a buyer from Reaper Mini for about 3 years now, and I have never been disappointed with a purchase. I highly suggest Reaper if you are looking for a great addition to your tabletop party!
