Today, I would like to show my group of Cyber-Reavers by Reaper Miniatures. These “Terminator like” Robots come in a four pack and belong to the Chronoscope line. I believe that I bought mine through RAFM Miniatures at a convention a number of years ago. The reason that I am showcasing them today is because I plan to proxy them as British Armoured Infantry Section for my coming Battle Reports of Konflikt ’47. While the British Armoured Infantry Section is not an automated unit, these robots fit the theme of British Armies experimenting with autonomous units in Konflikt ’47. At the end of this article is a picture for size comparison purposes between these Reaper Minis and Minis by Warlord Games for Bolt Action.

While looking at these images, please keep in mind that the paint job on these guys was completed a number of years ago before I developed my shading and highlighting techniques. The bases are all painted a metallic silver to indicate that they are part of a robotic unit. When I first started painting miniatures, I painted their bases to show to which faction they belong. It is a carry-over from my boardgaming days and I originally intended for these figures to be used in skirmish games (such as USX: Modern Day Heroes by RAFM Miniatures). I anticipate that they will also be quite usable in the upcoming game Rogue Stars by Osprey Publishing. Now let’s take a closer look at the figures.
Considering that I painted them in two colours (plus a few more on the base) several years ago, they don’t look too bad. Below is the scale comparison of the Reaper Miniatures Cyber-Reavers versus British Command Infantry by Warlord Games.

I hope that my readers enjoyed this article and I would like to take a moment to thank Osprey Publishing for sending me my copy of Konflikt ’47. I have been having a lot of fun with the book and am looking forward to getting in my first games for Battle Reports.

Until next time, Happy Gaming Everyone!!!
