    FOPCON 4 paint and take

    Thanks for the great review of the event. It's great to get public feedback and possitive feedback is all the better. I personally think that The crowd at FOPCON was awsome and they couldn't have given more praise about the Bones! I'm doing about 5 cons a year at this point but FOPCON is definitely a gem of a con.

    FOPCON 4 paint and take

    I just wanted to post some pictures of FOPCON 4's paint and take. FOPCON is a small local con but it is exceptionally well organized and has the feel of a much larger con. That is one reason that I keep coming back to run a Reaper paint and take event for them. This year was the best yet and it was made that much better because I got to see just how good the new Reaper Bones product really is. I know that I could have posted this in the Bones post but I didn't want it to get lost. The one thing i kept hearing throughout the whole thing was just how amazing the new bones line really is. Attendees could not believe the detail and the amazing way that the product took paint without any primer. When asked what prep I made, I replied "I just washed them with dish water." Below are some pictures of the event. There were several times that the table was jam packed but people still came just to check out Them Bones!

    Dem Bones

    I have a few and will have them at the Reaper Paint and take I will be running at: http://fopcon.com/ I personally think they look fantastic and I have showed them to the gaming vender who will also be at FOPCON and he in is also very impressed with the quality and the price. He is very excited about the product and will be getting them in ASAP. He hopes to have the complete line in time for FOPCON. I also had a copy of Casket Works and showed him the upcoming release. He loves them both. I cant wait to see how they are recieved at the con.

    Pic's from DENCON in Granville... I drove 102 miles each way and ran the paint and take for 6 hours. I was my first time running an event for this con but they were a really great group and I'm definitly doing it again next year. http://sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-snc7/582661_394596413898400_100000441350690_1359340_1567620691_n.jpg http://sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/537936_394596457231729_100000441350690_1359342_1207840294_n.jpg http://a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/581026_394596497231725_100000441350690_1359343_1719403855_n.jpg http://a6.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/553766_394596527231722_100000441350690_1359344_1404199443_n.jpg http://sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/399020_394596593898382_100000441350690_1359345_1364636589_n.jpg http://a2.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/579170_394596650565043_100000441350690_1359346_1748537244_n.jpg

    Ok it's looking like the Mrs. Bluethunder will give the ok and I will be adding Dencon as a 5th con this year. it is April 7th Burton Morgan, Building Denison University 100 West College street Granville, Ohio. www.wix.com/dencon/2012 looking at stubdog's post I thought... what about setting up a laptop at the event and having attendees fill out the form when they sign in at the event. It becomes real time data collection. Currently, I favor taking pictures of my attendees durring the event. I have actually looked back and seen some people return year after year as well as see male vs. female attendees and relative ages. It is because of the photographic evidence combined with my recolections of the event that I tend to have a lot of figures that appeal to female and younger female painters that are new to the hobby.

    My attitude exactly. That's a big reason why i continue to do events for people. The people want us to do these kinds of things for them and I love doing it so "Heak Yea!" I'll keep doing it as long as my paints and minis last... it makes me feel good!

    Simply an oversight my lord... You and your dungeon of doom are now formally invited. I may even have another con for you to invade but it is short notice as they just aproached me on the 24th while at WITTcon. I think it's called DENCON and its just outside of Columbus but I'll have to check the info later today when I get home. It's in Two weeks and they said ther attendance should be about 140 or so.

    Here are some Photo's from the University of Daytons CON last February. I still do 4 cons a year on my own and I am thinking of adding a fifth. I guess I was a BL for so long I just can't quit even though the official program is gone. I continue to use all the stuff I used when I was a BL but I let the con organizers know that I am doing this unofficially at this point. If at some point in the future Reaper starts up a new program, I would love to be a part of it. Untill then I'll just keep on Keepin' the faith. http://sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/428124_363533040338071_100000441350690_1264177_2034299105_n.jpg http://a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/419882_363532903671418_100000441350690_1264175_655894750_n.jpg http://sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-snc7/423563_363532977004744_100000441350690_1264176_1341729907_n.jpg http://sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-snc7/424606_363533083671400_100000441350690_1264178_840320658_n.jpg http://sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/431731_363532847004757_100000441350690_1264174_730035208_n.jpg

    I don't know about every one else but I have just been continuing doing my thing unofficially.

    Finally took the plunge into Warlord

    I'm always glad to see new players. I've recently started running a couple demo games again myself and with very few exceptions the game is always very well recieved.
