We wish you could go, too.


I really think we need to get more serious about replacing the GenghisCon painting track with a Denver painting con. Which probably means we need a real trail boss. Any volunteers?

You buying?

I don't think our budget runs to bringing in* a con runner from New York. If we can get it going, we'd love to have you out for it (on your dime, though ::D:).

 

* Originally wrote "brining in", which is probably a bit different. :blink:

If I can ever get Portalfest back off the ground, you guys are naturally invited to invade with painting shenanigans. ;p

Pretty sure we're salty enough not to need any additional brining.:lol:

I have learned much from the gardens question...

 

Question for Rcon attendees: Are you all set to pick your classes for ReaperCon??

I have a list of classes I'd like to take. Since my wife and I haven't decided if I can go, I haven't purchased tickets yet so I'll see what classes are available when the time comes.

Weekend Questions: July 14/15/16...

Forget unlikely Sci-Fi things like phasers, what do you think near-future weapons advances will consist of?

 

Sci-Fi minis and models, do you have any? How many? (answers may use goblin, elven, wizardish, or Arabic maths; we're not picky.)

 

Bonus Quest: (to complete by the 16th) paint something that looks like it has a Zap-beam, Death-ray, Phazer-bank, etc. 

Double bonus: make it look like it glows somehow.

7/14: I'd hazard to guess we'll see man-portable/usable railguns and sonic rifles in the near future.

7/15: Not yet, but I've pre-ordered Paizo's Starfinder basic books, so I'll probably start getting into sci fi minis and models thereafter.

7/16...I'm not going to have any time this weekend.

Near future: For personal weapons, caseless ammunition, then railguns. Work is ongoing, as I understand it. For vehicle-mounted weapons, railguns. Because of thermal blooming (which requires a great deal of power to mitigate), I think that high-powered lasers will likely be a special purpose item limited to fixed installations and perhaps navies.

 

ETA: I actually think that space navies are more likely to use smart projectiles than beam weapons, because projectiles don't attenuate with distance and terminal guidance is only possible (AFAICT) with matter.

 

SF minis: Many. I have ships for Full Thrust, vehicles for OGRE/Dirtside/whatever, including quite a bit of CAV stuff, and a lesser quantity of 25mm and 15mm people (broadly construed).

 

We'll see about the quest.

1-I would hope that in the future near or otherwise, that we could move away from organized murder unlikely as that is.

 

2-I have some 40k Orks that some one gave me years ago, & I had some painted ones that I had given to one of our Forumites recently.

That's it; I've never developed much interest in Sci-Fi. I find the idea of Future Wars depressing.

 

3-Sorry; I don't do future weaponry.

1) Drones, all the drones.

2) The vast majority of my "collection" is Sci-Fi.  I've always preferred Sci-Fi to Fantasy.  I have many 20's of Sci-Fi miniatures and models.  I had an accurate count a few months ago, but recent purchases that have made it larger by 20 or so more models.

3) I was actually planning to make some time for mass painting this weekend.

Teleporting Helium Nuclei  into people from the other side of the planet.

 

A few. My introduction to miniature painting was buying a sandwich bag full of 40k Eldar from a friend in high school.

 

Not sure I have anything that sci-fi but I have plenty of translucent sprue thanks to Bones III.

Well, there's your problem.  You were in *that* state.

 

I don't think it's necessarily a Michigan thing. I ate plenty of chili with meat that had chilly powder in it when I lived in Michigan. 

 

However, my mother would make chilli with not much spice, (But it still had meat.)

 

A greek style chili is also popular at some 'coney islands'. It would still have meat, but it would have cinnamon and cumin undertones (and it still had chili powder in it.) Greek chilli is more famous as Cincinnati chili. 

 

I found Minnesota to be more in line with serving sauces and chilli that were just tomato sauce, without spice than Michigan was.
