Ok, this deal on miniatures has become downright bananas! Most D&D players seem to already know about it, but if you haven't seen it yet: it's definitely worth witnessing. Also discussed here.

(yes, I'm breaking my code of 'no shilling' by posting this... but it's more a matter of "If you play D&D, you have to see this!")

Agreed, this is doing the community a favor.

Yeah, this Reaper thing is just bananas.  I'm absolutely loving it.  It's gone crazy.  Only a day and a half left to get in on it, but I wouldn't be at all surprised to see the stretch goals go up to $3 million by then.  The last couple of days of Kickstarters like this do tend to get a little ridiculous - just look at the Order of the Stick one.

Currently standing at ~215 minis for $100 (+$25 for non-US/CA shipping, plus potentially frankly silly amounts of money if you want absolutely everything, which I have to say I don't/ it's possible to have too many Giants and Dragons...

Yeah. It looked complicated... but boiled down to just one choice:

'Vampire' package ($100 for hundreds of minis), and afterwards trade in the metal 'Sophie' miniature for another $25 in add-ons.

I was going to buy add-ons separately, but it turned out to be better to just buy another Vampire package.
I went ahead and did the Vampire package. It's a no-brainer!
Here are the PHB essentia, in my opinion:
  • Three Basic Rules (p 11)
  • Power Types and Usage (p 54)
  • Skills (p178-179)
  • Feats (p 192)
  • Rest and Recovery (p 263)
  • All of Chapter 9 [Combat] (p 264-295)
A player needs to read the sections for building his or her character -- race, class, powers, feats, equipment, etc. But those are PC-specific. The above list is for everyone, regardless of the race or class or build or concept they are playing.
They're up to over 220 miniatures now for for $100.  It's crazy!
