The 7th Visions in Color showcase (Winter 2001/2002) was sponsored by Reaper Miniatures.

The special thing about this VIC is, that Reaper Miniatures has offered to produce a special Visions in Color miniature. After this offer, a small group of people, that have been involved in the organization of the previous VIC events, has met online and came up with a description of the VIC miniature. Then we sent this description to Reaper Miniatures, where Reaper Ron commissioned a conceptual drawing of the miniature. The result of this can be seen here :

Sandra Garrity has sculpted a miniature based on this artwork. The scale of this miniature is slightly larger than the usual Reaper Heroic scale. The miniature measures 34mm from foot to eye.

This miniature is a VIC exclusive by Reaper miniatures! It will never be on sale in the stores in this form.

The time to order this miniature (between 7th January 2002 and 20th January 2002 (Central European Time)) has expired. We had an overwhelming response to this event so far. Over 200 people have ordered more than 600 miniatures. Every participant got one free miniature to paint for the VIC.

Thanks to Reaper, Sandra Garrity and the helping hands of the visions_takforce.

A special thanks goes to Deane P. Goodwin. Deane was so kind to handle the US and international shipping. This has been a tremendous amount of work. And made my job with the VIC much easier, since I only had to handle the European orders. Thanks, Deane !!!!!.

OK, now enjoy the miniatures and leave some comments if you like.

Thanks,
Dominic
