  1. Pcktlnt's Rescue (Ral Partha 02-902 Female Giant V.1)

    It probably won't. Sadly though, out of the last four years, it was the saddest amount of melt I had ever seen. The three years prior, you couldn't see the bottom of the bin after the first day, and didn't see it again (except when people made mini mountains) until the last day. There would be years I would never see pktlnt anywhere other than the table........I saw him paint this year!!!! *Tisk*

    So, I highly recommend picking up at least the grey stynylrez primer, and, if you can, the white one too. When you prime in just black it will tend to mute and muddy colors (great if that's it's intended purpose). However, once you prime in black and it's dry, you can then use the grey to add directional lighting by holding the mini, angling it, and spraying from a bit of a distance. Then doing it again for the white but closer. You don't even need to use primer honestly. I've done it with regular reaper paints over black primer. But undercoating it will help with the mudding and it makes it a bit easier to just glaze color over the primer.

    From their website.... Houlihan's Houlihans menu features center-cut steaks, wood-grilled flatbreads and artisan salads and sandwiches, along with an interesting, everyday wine and cocktail selection. We offer many dishes in both small and large portions and are dedicated to developing menu options that address ever-evolving consumer lifestyles — be it meatless, organic or whole grain items. Its a bar from what the pictures show, not really a restaurant. Also, since it's a new hotel, it's all new to everyone, so we are all kind of going in blind.

    There is only one, and it's called Queenies Steakhouse. It's about 2.6 miles from the hotel. Interesting menu and it looks to be on par if not more expensive than Saltgrass. Not sure if it is better quality though....

    So I've been scouting about using Google maps and I've found a few food options near the hotel. There is an In-N-Out, McDonalds, Whataburger, Chipotle, Panera, Chili's, Cracker Barrell, Raising Canes, Chik-fil-a, Starbucks are all just on W University Dr. The Rudy's BBQ is actually about 5+ miles "down the road" and those without a vehicle may have to use a Lyft/Uber.

    It's not just a dinner....it's where you can pick up your swag bags early and register. It's also a good time to get to know people while it's still relatively quiet. If you register for early classes on Thursday and skip the Weds M&G, you will have to go down to where it's gonna be held and get in line. When it was at the PEC it wasnt ever really that big of a line, but when I remember it at the HGI it was a pretty gnarly line. Monday doesn't have any days, but I recommend taking that day because there is so much going on the whole week and it's pretty tiring. Having that extra day to recuperate is pretty essential to going back to work.

    The daily rate isn't that much more than what the HGI normally charged. Even then, there is always the possibility of room sharing.
  8. Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

    Considering that their room rate normally that was quoted to me just now was $159/night normally........im sure they will get a decent rate.
  9. [SPLIT] CMoN orders

    For those of you waiting for CMoN orders, I'm sorry to break your hearts, but they tend not to care too much about their store orders as much as they care about their KS stuff. The Mrs and I, last year, worked their CMoN expo in March, got credit and purchased stuff that month with it. About 6-7 months later (and this was with a few friends that know ppl in the company trying to push it along) our orders arrived. They are pretty permanently back logged in their store and they seem to be ok with that since, in the end, they have your money already. But, the best I can say is good luck....and may the odds be ever in your favor.

    Since you are working on glazes, on a discrete location of the skin (like on a foot) try thinning some purple (preferably a mid to shadow purple) and glaze it into the shadows. Also, your work is coming along quite nicely since your first miniature posted here!
  12. Reapercon BoGW?

    Pretty sure they ran out. But as the song goes "dream on, dream on, dream on. Dream until your dream comes true".

    I kind of think it's an interesting take on an almost "monochrome" effect. It also gives it an old monster movie feel imo. I kind of think each of the shades are different enough that they provide suitable enough contrast. I'm really digging the oil painting feel I get from it Aaron. I always enjoy seeing how you do each miniature a little differently.

  15. It's actually looking more like my wife's Deathwing than my Magmaw. Also, have you tried mixing a drop of the red into the white and putting a thin line where you have the red and the scales meet. Try it in a test area first tho. It should give it a glowing look and it should counter balance the dark and make it pop.
