So, who is excited about ReaperCon 2017

2210 posts in this topic

Working on my diorama right now, nearly done with the frog demon and the base just needs me to add the flames and I'll be able to call it done.  Then I need to paint the keeper and the 4 adventurers this week and the following weekend. Hopefully, I can get this done in time to be able to do any needed touchups the following short week on the diorama project and the other things I'm bringing along to the Con.

Would sanding it with light grit sandpaper help build teeth mark for the primer?

I've decided to hug and kiss my nieces and nephews as they leave daycare every day for the next two weeks in anticipation of sharing whatever flu strain they decide to give me this year...

:lol:

Kidding.

Although the little darlings sure do love to share their germs with their auntie! 

 

 

Ill be on service the weekend before. I'll be sure to bring whatever virus is going around that is getting people admitted to the hospital. :lol:

 

Just kidding. But I won't touch Talespinner, Little Bluberry and ill just fist bump Ub3r.

12 days...

 

Panicking yet???

 

A bit, yes.  To do list as of today:

 

- Finish painting Coraline (50% done)

- Create 26 spear tools for my classes

- Finish sculpting 4 bunnies for Dark Fable

- Create a custom sculpted conversion for a friend

- Finish the mini I am sculpting for another friend (or at least get close enough that I can easily finish at the con)- Get the two sculpts I want to work on at the con to an anatomically recognizable shape

- Change oil in the car

- Clean the house.

- Finish varnishing my wife's new, antique cedar chest (we got it at an estate sale and I am refinishing it for her.  I need to get it done before it gets too cold.  First frost is tonight)

- Pick the veggies in the garden before they freeze

 

I'm sure I'll think of more before next week.

Do you know the status of your entries? 

 

Woefully under finished.

This is your two week warning. Two weeks!

 

Yes, two weeks until you can start panicking about your 2018 entry!

 

/Oh, sorry! Too soon?

I'm not sure why, but it sort-of depresses me that in 2 weeks it will all be over.

Yeah... it did me too as I wrote that. For all the build up, a ReaperCon is a tiny slice of time.

That's beautiful...

And yeah, I ran into the same problem with those lids. I hope sanding works.

Finally got the Sweet 'n Low glued to my CAVs, so that entry is done. Debating trying out OSL for the first time on a Battletech Kodiak. Staring at Ogrethulhu and wondering if that would end up in Painter's, Ordnance, or should be put away before it starts staring back. Also wondering if it'd be worth it to finish up a squadron of BFG cruisers, or if this is just spamming entries.
