This blog is about the world of gaming miniatures, as seen from my perspective. I've been collecting and painting for over 30 years now, and while my primary focus is miniatures for D&D, I also enjoy many other games that use minis, so we'll be covering those as well. Thanks for stopping by!

Reaper's P-65 Frost Wyrm - Some Assembly Required...

I took advantage of the holiday clearance sale over at FRP Games and picked up almost $90 worth of minis for only $30 including shipping. My order consisted of Reaper's Stone Lurker (roper), Vulture Demon (vrock), and a P-65 Frost Wyrm (remorhaz). Oh, I also bought my first Star Wars 30mm mini by Knight Models - Count Dooku. I paid roughly $4.35 for the roper, $6.23 for the vrock, and $10.50 for the remorhaz, which retails for $35. Count Dooku was a steal at $2.50!

They arrived yesterday, and I had a chance to open the package this morning. Everything looks great, but I just had to open up the frost wyrm. It's heavy (8.6 ounces) and consists of 22 pieces! There's the lower body (base), torso/neck/lower jaw, armor plates (behind the head), head/beak, frill x2, tail, legs/claws x 7, spines x7, and right mandible (the left mandible is molded in place).

Here's a picture of all the parts. Lots of nasty, pointy spines and claws! I'm still planning on an assembly write-up as well to see how everything comes together.

Now I just need to get the Ral Partha and Center Stage versions, and I'll have a killer trio for my DM to play with.
