    Reaper classes?

    I made the GrowTix account, I can see my con registration, and I've selected classes which I can see. Still working on actually purchasing them :-) Thanks for the follow up everyone. ***Edited to add I finalized my purchases.

    Reaper classes?

    So I already bought Con admission and I know I have a log in and password. When I click to sign in so I can purchase tickets it takes me to a screen I have never seen before for "GrowTix" and my information does not work. Nor does it send me a password reset. I could go in and try to set up as a new user for GrowTix, but then how do I link my tickets to my already purchased stuff? I'm sure I'm missing something easy here, somebody help me out please :-)
  3. My package from Wyvernfire last week, but due to much holiday traveling I am only now posting. Many thanks for the amazing goodies! A hand drawn card, a super cute tiny painted dragon, (unpainted) a wraith and guardian beast - right up my alley for what I like to paint, new basing materials (of a a kind I didn't have at all) are always welcome, and then delicious teas and some maple candies. Thank you so much. Here's hoping the attachments don't give me pain :-)

    Help finding a mini

    I have a friend looking for a mini that is proving rather difficult to find. They need something similar to Mario from that copyrighted game we all know and love. I'm sure we won't find anything exact, but hopefully something close. It's an adult human monk. I found the Old West kids and the Hillbilly guys, but that's the closest I've been able to get. Preference for Reaper products, but if you have other suggestions, PM please :-)
  5. Is there a topic in place yet for "got my package, thanks?" If not, is there one planned, or should we post acquisitions here so our person will know the things arrived safely?

    Reaper Store Wishlist

    Yeah, there's been requests for years on this, so hopefully it will become a reality one day :-) My family won't buy anything hobby related for gifts if it's not on a wishlist because only my husband even remotely has an idea of what I like. Other mini websites have one that is slightly clunky because you have to log yourself in to see them, they're not shareable like Amazon, but I'm not against giving my log-in & password to family so they can access them. I've seen the "use your own log-in" version at enough other sites to suspect it's the easier option. I'd take it in a heartbeat to be able to keep up with my Reaper "wishes."

    Reapercon Admission Tickets/Badges

    Thanks Nakos...I finally found the right page with the gluten free info, and that is pretty cool about the extra mini. I love the VIP Perk option because last year I wound up choosing my faction and still buying most of the other minis anyway.

    Reapercon Admission Tickets/Badges

    I'm definitely in support of asking (begging?) for a blank spot to Sharpie names on the badges please :-) Bryan mentioned something in a post about the only gluten free option being orange....not sure if that was a joke, but I don't see anything on the page to purchase a gluten free option. Is there such a creature? I may be bringing a friend with Celiac's and told her I would check, but she might have to pack her own food for some of the meals. Last thing, the way the options are listed for the VIP deal makes it look like you both choose a faction mini (in the ReaperCon Swag Bag section) AND get one of each faction (in the VIP Perk Pack section) I'm guessing that's probably incorrect and you'd get one of each and not the plus one on top of it?

    ReaperCon 2017 Classes Preview

    Honestly I don't care so much whether it's June or July, I just want to be prepared this time! :-) I'm pretty sure Bryan takes care of managing the site, and I know he's up to his elf in alligators with Bones III.

    ReaperCon 2017 Classes Preview

    Yeah, I follow them on FB, but I don't have Twitter. It's totally understandable if they don't go up until July. Just hoping at some point for an official word on when-ish :-)

    ReaperCon 2017 Classes Preview

    Good point Haldir. I just want to be more prepared than last year. I employed the "just check every day" method, for a while, and then literally the only time I missed one day it wound up being two days before I went back, and I missed out on a lot of what I wanted :-(

    ReaperCon 2017 Classes Preview

    Do we have an official date for class purchases to be open? The last thing I saw was "sometime in June." :-)

    3D printed minis

    Thanks all, I'm feeling much less nervous about the material now. The ones I have simply refuse to photograph with my cell phone and low photography skills, but they are considerably better quality than what was in that video. That guy is genius, because the mini he had was awful! I think these may be Hero Forge, but they're black and the lines are almost invisible until you put on a visor. I've got several kinds of primer, but the brush on seems better at filling small imperfections. The spray-on I have is for doing the husband's GW minis and it's made specifically to bond with the plastic. Knarthex, I don't have an airbrush, so we're safe there, but I thought you might find this amusing. The other day my son caught me licking a brush and he was completely indignant. He yelled "UGH MOM! TASTE THE WEASEL? EWWW"

    3D printed minis

    So I took a commission to paint some minis for a tabletop game. I didn't even think to ask what material they were made from. I get them, and they're 3D printed. Have any of you primed and painted this stuff? It's fairly high quality for 3D printing, but there are extremely slight striations. I am hoping that primer will smooth it out, but now I'm concerned with how the primer will react to this material. I have already seen what happens to the GW plastic when someone else applied the spray primer too close, so I'm thinking the safest thing might be brush on. Any advice or help would be great.
