A little while ago now Reaper ran an insanely successful Kickstarter for their new 'bones' range of soft plastic fantasy and sci-fi minis. I was very tempted to join in on the Kickstarter, but in the end the international postage put me off. Ever since then I've been meaning to pick up a couple of pieces to see what they're like. Our recent obsessive playing of Warhammer Quest has given me the excuse to add a 'Great Mummy' which stands in as a Tomb King in our dungeons.
What arrived is shown above, a slightly squashed soft plastic figure. It appears to be similar plastic to the Mantic Mars Attacks stuff that I got recently. The squashed problem was easily solved by immersing the figure in nearly boiling water.
However once I got painting all went well and I got the result you see above. Overall I'm really quite pleased with this chap, Reaper Bones figures are very cheap and the range is massive, as I mentioned before the quality does vary, but there's a lot of useful figures to be got, especially for filling up dungeons. Also being soft plastic they're quite hard to damage.
One last point is that he was a bit bigger than I was expecting, towering over my classic GW mummies. I'm not sure if this is standard for the range or not, it might be because he is a 'great' mummy. Monsters come in various sizes anyway, but a towering bunch of humans might look a bit odd compared to other manufacturers if this is standard size.
