I will want to see some of the last greens painted, but I kind of like the steampunk women.

Got my kickstarter from them, some of the sculpts are better than I expected and some disappointing, but for an average of 60 cents (USD) per mini, I should not complain at all.

both please!
I think the casting material is too soft for my liking, worried about durability.

never had it n my hands, so can't say anything about the material :) there's a heap of information in Reaper boards - how it behaves, how it should be treated etc. Check the pinned topics in "Bones/Legendary Encounters" section of their forum.
sculpts - as always with Reaper. they can amazing or total crap. fortunately, they've picked minis/sculpts I rather like (speaking in general).

I have limited experience with the Bones miniatures, but I have to say that I'm not fond of them. To me, they are much more difficult to clean than their metal figures. I'm skeptical of their claim that you don't need to prime them, but again, that's just me.

I will be priming them with Kyron Plastic spray primer (likes PVC). I will be brushing with old tooth brush in soapy water (with TSP added; important to remove some mold release products) AFTER treatment in ultrasonic cleaner with soap.
The figures were made in China, FYI.
