Reaper Miniatures

Reaper Miniatures

Reaper Miniatures is a manufacturer of highly detailed RPG and D&D metal figures, plastic figures, and paints. With a selection of over 5000 SKUs, Reaper’s figures are an excellent choice for the painting and gaming enthusiast. Figures are based off the 25mm Heroic Scale – this means the average human figure is going to stand about 1 inch tall. Large creatures such as dragons are often much larger, smaller creatures smaller than 1". All Reaper figures come unpainted so users can customize them however they like or play with them right out of the box. Many metal figures no matter the size come unassembled, smaller plastic figures are usually assembled, and larger plastic figures are usually unassembled.

Is this Reaper Mini figure Metal or plastic?

Most Reaper figures on Pippd.com include that information in the title. If not, have a look at the bullet points and description. Also note, if a figure is in the 'Bones' category, then it is made of plastic. Here’s an example of the same figure but made from different material:

metal reaper miniature

Metal figures from Reaper Miniatures are cast in pewter. They're heavier and usually more expensive than plastic Bones figures. Small or large, metal figures may come unassembled, depending on the model. Before painting, the figure may need to be prepared, including assembly, removing unwanted metal left from the molding process, or bending limbs and/or weapons into the desired position. Metal figures are manufactured in Denton, Texas (the same city we're based out of).

Plastic figures are usally manufactured in China.
