The Kickstarter ended Saturday Aug 25, 2012 @ 6:00pm EDT.

Since time immemorial (at least it seems that way) our group has replaced chits & markers with miniatures. Perhaps it was because we also used to do a fair amount of RPGs and had the miniatures lying around.

I don't usually get around to painting miniatures, and most of the ones that come with games are unpainted too. But, in my opinion, minis add to the atmosphere.

Right now, Reaper Miniatures is running a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign:
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1513061270/reaper-miniat...

The best deal was the Vampire level which yielded backers 241 minis for $100, and allowed backers to swap out the Sophie miniature for $25 credit toward even more miniatures.

This list is just a way for everyone to collectively think about how this specific Reaper Kickstarter could be used to enhance boardgames.

Update November 1, 2014:

If you participated in the Bones or Bones II Kickstarters, you may want to check out the Twisting Catacombs Kickstarter to add bling to your games.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1207385459/twisting-cat...

Many of the items can also be used to represent in-game items or quests.

But, you better hurry. As of this posting there are only 9 hours left.

Many of the "Vampire" level miniatures can be used in Arkham Horror, plus the "Mythos Monsters" @ $10 are a no-brainer for AH.

Particularly, the fire elementals could be used for fire vampires (I know not an exact representation but the concept is there). Ghosts, Cthulhu mini for Star Spawn, shogguth, deep dwellers for deep ones....

There also looks to be an undead in there and several of the wizards would work for cultists.

Arkham Horror with miniatures several years ago:

Lots of miniatures for BaHotH as well.

Ghosts are common in several haunts, and there is the fantasy haunt with the dragon that would be perfect for many of the minis.

The vermin would work for the insect haunt as well.

Too bad they haven't added their book of the dead miniature. We used that one two years ago for the Cthulhu haunt, which the Mythos Monsters $10 option would work for.

As a surprise, when the portal is opened and the dragon comes through can you imagine this guy ripping open the entryway of the house?

If you lack the 1st edition of Descent and want to shoot your hero selection through the roof for the 2nd edition, then the Bones KS with this kit will get you plenty of options for proxy heroes and a selection of monsters to be converted.

Dont forget to get the optional ettins & dragons for bad a** looking red monsters!

Replace the cardboard dungeon decor with Bones dungeon decor.

Plus, most minis can be replaced with those from the Bones set... at least just about everything except the Chaos Warriors and Fimirs.

Two of the "Dark Heroes" will work for Chaos Warriors.

Want to add a 4th or 5th marine for a 2-5 or 2-6 player game and can't get a copy of the hard-to-find out-of-print Doom: Expansion.

Want a female marine?

Use the IMEF marines. If you're going to paint them there is even an IMEF Marine paint kit available as an option.

I am thinking of using the rats from the Ghast level for Notre Dame's rat scoring tokens.

The trouble is, I want about one third of the Vampire level figures, and have no idea what I would do with the rest. I am trying to find someone at Vampire level that can order me the 6 or so sets that I want above the Ghast level. (or someone who wants the 12 or so sets out of the Vampire level that I don't want.)

Or





You could also use most any of the other minis for the "Fairy" piece, like the hooded wizard mini.

edit: or more realistic response, some of the smaller dragons could work.

A simple, fast-playing skirmish wargame that uses any 15mm or 25-30mm fantasy minis. The rules pdf will only run you $5. There are also many supplements available that add rules for additional settings and special abilities. With the Reaper Kickstarter miniatures you would have nearly endless combinations of warbands to design and battle!
