Seems to me that I've SUGGESTED a few questions... but not lately.

As to culture... this picture stunned me when I saw it:

20293114_10156252537245190_2177307353842133337_n.jpg.62c19f90af0649ffd74ddc15ded114f5.jpg... because it implies... that more than a VERY few people will get the joke.

 

I came of age around the time that "Dungeons and Dragons" was JUST getting some recognition from society at large... just in time for the Satanic Panic. And it amuses me to no end that a mass market comic, aimed at mass market children, chose to parody that particular painting from that particular book that a fair number of MODERN geeks wouldn't get, since the last time it appeared in public was on the 3.5 ed. Player's Handbook II, albeit from a slightly different angle... 

... we've gone legit. We're iconic. Even if it looks like the Sponge Demon has a huge butt in its mouth.

As to the narrower culture of this particular forum... hey, I'm for it. Out with the trolls, up with the goblins. I'm good.

If you want suggestions:

AUGUST 1: What does the Dungeons and Dragons movie (the one currently in preproduction, not that horrible Jeremy Irons paycheck)... What does the Dungeons and Dragons movie ABSOLUTELY HAVE to have in it?
AUGUST 2: What should the Dungeons and Dragons movie TOTALLY NOT have in it, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES?

Of course there's a forum culture. We have our own language, or at the very least a wide breadth of unique terminology, we have our own math, our own mythology, our own sayings, etc. It's easy to take for granted when you're in the middle of it, but outsiders typically pick up on that sort of thing. That's why people generally lurk for a while before they make the decision to join in - they're studying the culture and deciding whether it's a good fit for them or not.

Y'all call it culture, I call it family.

That is absolutely amazing to see this happen, old school art always evokes such memories for us that the modern books just can't compete with.

Hey, I love that awful movie with Jeremy Irons. He had entirely too much fun. And the lead rogue was kinda a teenage crush. my nerd vibes just showed up OHNOES

 

There is a new D&D movie in the works? Not another awful sequel? Yes I have seen both sequels... 

 

Uhh...

 

Just get a decent crew in there. I wouldn't want to set a content limit. But I love epic fantasy and have been subsisting on cheese lately. Cheese is satisfying but won't stay pleasing forever.

Reaper has friendly forums with RP/paint nerds and sends naughtiness to the Beekeepers. Which is odd, considering actual beekeepers are more on the friendly hippies side than combative.

 

Yeah, but you just described Beekeepers.  We get a bit ornery on occasion, but we're typically very polite.

What? You have a forum where people can discuss touchy subjects without it going all wierd and nasty? Hard to believe it's on the internet. Still gonna avoid it just because I've got enough stupidity happening in my personal life without worrying about politics, religion etc. I troll gaming and painting forums to forget about the nasty weirdness not to take part in it.

      I made a SNAFU and double booked myself for the Paint by Die Roll. The great kaiju has used his powers of internet and corrected it. However the Friday event had to be canceled. My apologies to everyone who was so kind to preregister. We have scheduled 2 new Paint by Die Roll events, One Thursday and one Saturday. We also added Survival Speed Paints after dinner every night. They are on the schedule and can be reserved. Again my apologies for messing up people's schedules!

      Penny ^ ...New model in blister. ^
       
      This guy is big enough to take up the footprint of four infantry skeletons. The penny is 19mm diameter. The plan is to give the figure a 40mm square, equivalent to four 20x20 bases arranged in a square.
       
      He will count as four members of the unit he'll be assigned to.

      Hey all! Last year I did this via PM, and it was a PITA. So this year I will be doing it out in the open. So, those of you who were on the cards last year, or got a card last year know how the game works, so you can skip the next paragraph.
       
      What is Forumite Bingo? It's a convention game I came up with last year and was well received so I will do it again this year. The game is just like what a bingo game would be, but rather than calling out numbers to fill your card, you must go around and introduce yourself to members of the forum who are on your card. Say hi to them, and you can cross their box off. Once you've made "bingo", return to me for your Bingo ribbon. Blackout isn't required, but several people did it for the grins. And there's nothing to 'prove' you met those who you have said you have, just the honor system. You only punish yourself by cheating yourself out of meeting wonderful people.
       
      Last year there were more volunteers than spaces, so not every one was on every card, and hopefully there will be enough volunteers again this year. It made for a good variety. So, this thread is not for signing up to receive a card to play. This is a signup for people who are willing to be on a card. The cards will be freely handed out at the convention. Just come find me, and potentially my wife who may have my materials. Be aware, volunteering to be on the card will mean that complete strangers will be coming up to meet you, and they may not be actually signed up and be on this forum. That happened more often than I thought it would last year. If that makes you uncomfortable, then reconsider volunteering.
       
      So, a bit few ground rules:
       
      Last year I excluded all the Reaper peeps since they are all pretty accessible. The game's purpose is to meet the less visible and vocal. I will continue that. Sorry peeps, we love ya, but I feel that's best. The free square in the middle will be me, since everybody has to meet me to get the card it seems the fairest way. You must be going to ReaperCon to be on the card please! And if possible, the full Thursday to Saturday at least. It's unfair to those whose card you are on if you don't show, or are a Saturday only person. I will not exclude you if you are a Saturday only (or similar) limited attendee. However, people who have you on their cards will get to cross you off without meeting you if you aren't there when they need you for bingo. By replying with the information below, you are giving your permission to use the picture provided and your name provided, and to be inundated with people introducing themselves to you. Once I've printed the cards (much closer to the con than I want), they are set in stone. I can't remove people from the cards, and they're a bit pricy to just toss. Plans change, life happens, and if you become a no-show, you simply become a gimme square and are crossed off automatically by those who need your square. It already happened last year, and well, it will probably happen again. We'll just roll along in those cases. Signups will be open from now until October 1st. That gives me a mere two weeks to randomize the cards and have them printed on card stock. I'll get a mod to lock this thread on that date, and once the thread is locked, no more volunteers will be accepted. One does not need to be very active on these forums to be on the card, but it helps people to recognize you. But I will not turn away anybody that isn't very active if they really want to be on the card. If there's a question about any of these numbered questions, please quote the text since the numbering is automatic and I can't control it if there's an insertion. I will update these rules as questions and issues come up.  
      All ready to sign up? Good! Here's what you need to do. Reply to this thread with:
      The name you want to use. I prefer your forum handle, so people might have some idea of who you are. They can always write your real name across the square as a way of crossing you off. What picture you wish to use for your square. Again, I prefer your forum picture, but if you are someone who changes it often, I might grab one that isn't current so having you explicitly give me one helps. What days you will be at ReaperCon. I'm planning to put the days you are there on the square somehow, and this will help us know if your are there that day or not. I'm only using Thursday thru Sunday, with Wednesday as a simple bonus day.  
      I think that's it for now. See you all in a month!

      So I was at the World Model Expo in Chicago last weekend, meeting Corporea and a whole bunch of Reaperites and ogling some of the finest miniatures painting and dioramas the world has to offer (the PA system requested fluent translators at a number of points).
       
      I took some pictures. Normally I've been putting up galleries on Photobucket, but they turned evil quite recently, so I'm attempting to put some up here to share.
       
      Anyhow, much of the show was historical miniatures, a category pretty new to me, and almost everything was much larger scale than the 28mm I'm used to. 
       
      As for the vendors, I regret to say that while for the larger figures the men were young, old, noble, peasant, ugly, handsome, heroic, villainous, commonplace, extraordinary, leaders, followers, white, black, Asian, Elvish, Orcish, cowboys, Vikings, soldiers, and fops; there were far fewer women figures and they were overwhelmingly pin-ups.
       
      Not that I have anything against pin-ups, per se.  I just prefer painting other things.
       
      I did pick up one very nice 54mm armored woman to give a try, only to discover Kuro Cleanbrush had done the same with the same model months ago. Good taste, Kuro!
       
      ( @Liverpuncher also put up a thread for his World Expo photos here.)
       
      Here's a couple of @Wren's pieces, including my own rough approximation of 3D photography: cross your eyes and it's 3-D!
