I believe this miniature was made by reaper but have been searching their range for hours on end and have had no luck finding it.

Markings on base bottom are "© RMI 04" and JAJ on the back edge of the base.

if anyone could help out with identifying it would be greatly appreciated.

Yep that's a Reaper by Jim Johnson:










61012: Prince of Shadows ($4.49)
Jim Johnson

The "61XXX" means that the mini was part of The Legend of the Five Rings range, which are sadly no longer available...although some on-line shops carry OOP Reaper.

BTW I found the mini by entering Jim Johnson in their search thingy. I hope that is of some help.

Awesome.


Thanks very Much DeafNala. I lost the packaging he came in during a move and its been bugging me since.

@lord siwoc: I know what u mean by the broccoli bases i detest them. Usually remove them once i start prepping the mini. This one has a nice Stone block pattern i was planning to extend over a larger base area.

You're welcome, Amigo.
That's one of those Oh-So-Cool minis I never got around to getting. I'm glad one of us had the good sense to pick him up. Enjoy painting the little Guy.

Haha just had a look and go figure now find the packaging. Just didn't realize it was the one for him.
Was packaged as an Exalted RPG Mini with a tiny reaper logo hiding on it.

Not sure if i'll still paint up this guy way to many projects and consignments at the moment. Actually came across him while sorting some stuff to Ebay.

THAT'S what the 61XXX means...this silly Old Man gets the Five Rings & Exalted mixed up. Too bad Reaper lost the license to make the suckers. It DOES rather motivate me to buy the Pathfinder minis I like before that license goes away also.

Yeah i'm with you.
Been saving pennies for a mass order of those Pathfinder minis. Some superb sculpts throughout the range.
I just gotta try to order lots in one hit. shipping to Australia is a pain , and the only store i know that carries anywhere near a decent amount of the reaper minis is 200kms away and doesnt do mail order.

I haven't been buying all that much lately, but I've had good results with The War Store: www.thewarstore.com , AND now I live in the same state as Reaper, although quite a distance South. If you check out The War Stores international shipping policy, Remember you DO have a friend in the USA.

Let me know if you need any help getting your mini fix. I did a order thingy with Burlock thaaat worked out well.

Jeesh.....good thing we have Deaf around!!! Could have sworn it was not a reaper...

It is a great mini though.

Why on earth Reaper still wants to do brocolli bases is beyound me. Just plain would do, so people can make their base like they want to. They are however easy to just drybrush and ready to use. Hmmm...that may just be the reason....

As God Awful as Reapers bases can be the ones from Dark Sword are EVEN WORSE....horrendously thick & often obscuring parts of the feel. The minis set up for slotted bases are an innovation that GW can be proud of...this may be a first.
