Battlestar Galactica Character Miniatures (part 3) – Reaper Miniatures

The third stop on my quest for Battlestar Galactica characters was Reaper Miniatures which has a huge selection of miniatures for all genres.

I accidentally ordered one miniature on it’s own instead of adding them all to my cart and then placing the order.  I found out their site is a little odd when it comes to trying to cancel or change an order.  To quote a section from their FAQ:  “In short, if you don’t catch us before 5PM CST, M-F, it’s unlikely you’ll catch us in time. On the weekends, we’ll be unable to catch these requests at all.”

The good news is this is because they are very quick on the shipping.  Anything you order one day is usually on the truck being sent for delivery the next morning.

The packaging was decent as well, no snacks but some sample paint and dice.  No bubble wrap in the packages, but it wasn’t needed as each miniature is on it’s own card.





Here’s the list of miniatures that I ordered, with links to the page on the Reaper Website:

50149 – Natalia, Female Secret Agent. This is the one I ended up with two of, one will make a good test for my rusty painting skills.




80025 – Bonnie.  This one is plastic and mine has a very sharp lean where her foot attaches to the base. I think heating it with a hair dryer then bending it will fix the problem but I haven’t tried it yet. It looks very similiar to the Veronica Blaze mini so it will be interesting to see how they compare once they are painted.


50032 – Jake Ryan, Hero Explorer. Something about this one just screamed “Starbuck!” to me.


50178 – Andre Durand, Time Chaser. Okay, this guy’s not really going to fit in to Battlestar Galactica, but I just really liked the mini.


50197 – Alien Overlord Boss. You might be able to get away with using this one as the Imperious Leader, but he really does scream “Mars Attacks!”
