  1. Hey I'm attempting something crazy for Gen con this year, and I need a little help. I am doing a diorama for the MHE painting competition, and the title for the piece is kind of an important part of it. Is it common or acceptable to have the title engraved to put on the base? If not, what is a good way to make the title known? This is something I've never done before so any advice (including general diorama advice would be appreciated. I wasn't planning on doing a WIP, just puting the picture up in Show off after Gen con assuming I get it done in time.
  2. Modiphius just announced that they got the license to do a star trek RPG and that they're doing signups for playtest rules at gencon this year! I am now so happy that I have spare bones lizardmen, to use for gorns.
  3. So I started packing up my Gencon stuff yesterday and realized that I was short three wolves for my brother's Ringbearer game. These three early Ral Partha wolves were already primed, so they got picked for the quick treatment; about an hour this morning. Basing sand is drying as I type...
  4. Here was my main entry for the Gencon MHE competition this year. Every year, I spend a lot of time painting a few minis, then enter any gaming miniatures I have that fit the categories. He got a gold award from the main competition, received a judge's choice award, and took home the 4th place Dark Sword trophy. I really love this mini- the biggest trouble I had painting him up was that Jim (owner of Darksword) owns a fantastic version of him painted by Zach Lanier. A lot of the decisions that I made on him kept this sort of meta-thinking in mind (ie, when Jim and Jess were judging the contest, I didn't want them to be comparing him to Zach's mini too much). I think I came out with an interpretation of this mini that is all my own. I've also posted him to Coolmini, for anyone who cares to vote.
  5. When I decided to enter the Painting Excuses contest I thought about painting Kyrie as Little Red Riding Hood (Pingo made mention of it when she came out and the idea has been rattling in my head ever since). But as I prep-ed her, it occurred to me that it would take very little to turn her into a barbarian version of Princess Mononoke. I mean, wolf cape! So I filled out her skirt with green stuff and covered the wolf face with a round blob to make the mask. I ended up wishing I had had made the mask bigger though. I used the rosy skin triad on her, blackened brown, shield brown, ginger cookie... and some tan on her armour bits. I know I started with ginger cookie for the cloak, and ended with white, but I don't remember the in-between colour (painting journal, what's that? ) And as usual, my camera washed out the work I did on the white. Honest to Sophie, there's actual shading and whatnot on that fur cloak
  6. This mini I painted for Gencon's Masterclass competition. Overall, I was rather pleased with how he turned out, but I honestly had a hard time placing him in the lineup when I saw all of those pretty minis show up (man, there were a lot of really nice ones this year- especially from Dark Sword). In the end, he placed Second in single miniatures- to Marke Reimer's (holy crap it was amazing) steampunk medusa. I was pretty happy about that. I've also posted him onto Coolminiornot for anyone who cares to vote.
  7. The Gencon 2014 mini. Mine has 1531 written on her package? Got her today, getting started on her. I like the wolf pelt especially
  8. While at GenCon this year I tried to track down how to get https://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/Special%20Edition%20Figures/latest/01531 Kyrie the female Barbarian. I found a promo code and was told I would have to order it from the Reaper site. I went to check out and I couldn't find anywhere to enter the promo code. Do you actually need the promo code? Can anyone just purchase her for the next few days? I am sorry if I am just terribly missing something. I've never tried to purchase a limited edition figure before from anywhere and just feel like I really don't know what I'm doing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. -Nym
  9. Well since it's a day of the week there's another new mini based skirmish game KS http://www.kickstart...arpath?ref=live Based on groups from the Americas & Pacific these could be the minis (Metal for those who care like you Buglips) you have been looking for The core rule book includes one War Party from each region: Pacific Northwest Tribes from the North, Woodland Tribes from the East, the Aztec Triple Alliance from Mesoamerica, the Inca Empire from the South, and the Hawaiian Koa from the Pacific. First up is an Aztec Officer A wereshark spirit beast from the pacific and a shapeshifting Mayan Shaman (Nagul) A full starter kit is around 15 minis, an example shown is for the pacific northwest 15 figures above, and a LE figure and a print for $50 ($65 international) or if you want the rules too $70 ($85) probaby not one for me being broke
  10. Here's a mini that I painted up for Gencon's painting competition. I was rather pleased with how he came out, but this year's competition was pretty stellar and he didn't come home with anything. I've also posted him to CMON for those of you who care to vote. Anyway, here are some pictures:
  11. So, now that we have recovered from GenCon, I thought it time to show off my horrible excuse for painting a Mouseling at GenCon:P Others are welcome to show off and post pics of their Speed Paint entries from GenCon 2013, too:) Mine came in as Honorable Mention(AKA Fourth Place) in my round. Third Pic didn't come out so good. So what did everyone else paint and how well did it do? GF
  12. I was searching through the events at GenCon this year and saw or rather didn't see a Warlord tournament. This kinda bummed me out. I had so much fun at last year's tournament I was hoping to enter again this year. In fact, I didn't see any Reaper sponsored events except a speed painting competition. No Dragon's Night Out, no Reich of the Dead, and no intro to Warlord games. Anyone know anything about this? Am I searching wrong or have the events not be entered yet?
