So Reaper has just launched a new line of plastic minis:
Handy little video there on the first page.
The sculpts are the same as from their pre-painted Legendary Encounters range, which in turn are the same as the metal Dark Heaven Legends/Warlord sculpts.
Apparently they're ready to paint straight out of the blister with no primer, which is interesting. Oh, and they're also REALLY REALLY CHEAP. Like, $2 each for characters. And at $3.50ish for the six pack of Kobolds, I might be starting a Kobold army very soon.
Hope this takes off well, they look set to put Finecast thoroughly to shame.
