2017 ReaperCon Forumite Bingo

Recommended Posts

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:


  1. 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.
  2. The free square in the middle will be me, since everybody has to meet me to get the card it seems the fairest way.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!

I'll be in this time. You can take either my real name or my forum name (::D:) and either my avatar or I can send you a portrait.


I think my avatar might be from a time when the allowable size was smaller than it is now, because I'm seeing pixelation. Let me know if you need a larger version for clarity; I should have them on my home computer.

Sure, or are you excluding artists, since we get approached a lot anyways?


if not then: TaleSpinner/Avatar/all the days


You may get approached a lot, but still a forumite. You're good to go.

Since the squares are pretty small anyway, pixelization isn't that obvious. I'll let you know if I have problems.

I'm in since people came up to me to ask if I was on their card anyway and all I did was disappoint them when I said no. ::P:

      This is pretty done besides the jewelry I plan to sculpt on it. As my scultping is Meh, I'm calling this the final product. I did something different with the eyes as I didnt really want to give her human or dragon eyes so I did neither. 
      I kind of like how they turned out considering she sat unpainted for weeks because I wasnt sure on what to do with the eyes!

      Finally got around to her...

      Thank you,

      So, 2017 was my first year in this hobby. I discovered the joys of miniatures. I discovered Reaper. I discovered Bones 4, and the Reaper forums with it. I'm going to post pictures of everything I've painted this year, more or less in order...with a bit of a blurb about my journey. Starting with before I joined these forums, my first miniatures. 
      KOBOLDS - WizKids Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures - 72557

      These were my first miniatures I painted. Yeah. I started with small kobolds... And with WizKids... (I didn't have primer on hand to start).
      GOBLINS - Reaper Bones - 77024

      What comes after kobolds? Goblins. I have no idea how there are only 9, when they come in packs of 6....I only remember painting 9, as well...This is a mystery... Also, these guys got painted based on a Runescape quest...yeah. I'm a nerd.
      ADVENTURERS - WizKids Deep Cuts -  72596, 72597, 72600, 72601

      So I used the WizKids adventures for Acolytes in my Hoard of the Dragon Queen game...yeah...these were my first human paint jobs.
      Golanth, Half Dragon Warrior - Reaper Dark Haven Legends - 03463

      Golanth was the first metal mini I painted. I remember loving tinting his armor. I also had to base him to keep him from falling over.
      Various Furniture - Reaper Bones - 77319, 77138, 77137

      I wanted some dungeon dressing...
      Swarms - Reaper Bones - 77129, 77128

      Thanks to Hoard of the Dragon Queen, the enemies my players are most afraid of are...RAT SWARMS. Yeah, the rat swarms in ch.1 almost ended up with a TPK. Good times.
      Halfling Rogue - WizKids Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures - 72627

      This chick was my first painted player mini. She was a halfling bard. I remember giving up on her eyes.
      Dracolisks - Reaper Bones - 77379

      I was super proud of these guys when I first did them. I loved how the washes looked!
      Cultist - Reaper Bones - 77351

      My goodness, I started to do detail with this guy! I'd actually discovered Reaper's forums with him, but I stayed just a lurker for a while.
      Andriessa, Female Wizard - Reaper Bones - 77386 OR 77381 (DDS2)

      I really spent a lot of time on her. I wanted to try and see just how detailed I could paint. 
      More Goblins - WizKids Deep Cuts - 72579

      More goblins.
      Black Bear (Companion Animals) - Reaper Bones - 77216

      The druid kept turning into a bear. It made me angry, but I still painted him up a mini.
      Phoenix  - WizKids Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures - 72563

      I just kind of stuck some red ink on this one.
      Deep Ones - Reaper Dark Haven Legends - SKU ????????? (None of my searches are finding these guys)

      Peryton - Reaper Bones - 77392

       I actually used reference photos for this guy!
      Spiders - Reaper Bones - 77025

      Mister Mouse is scared of spiders and hates these guys. He insists I keep them put away.
      Cassie, Female Gnome Wizard - Reaper Dark Haven Legends - 03340

      Recognize her? She was the first mini I posted up on these forums! She was used as my mini for my player character, Ashes. She was also my first attempt at basing. Additionally, you might remember her being my avatar for a long while.
      Zombies - Reaper Bones - 77053, 77014

      I played with some special effects with these guys. I still love the results! 
      Skeletons - Reaper Bones - 77242, 77241, 77244, 77238, 77237

      So many skeletons! I also think I have the wrong sku for my spearman...
      Ghast - Reaper Bones - 77159

      Wraith - Reaper Bones - 77097

      I tried adding a tuft of grass to this guy, in the back.
      Plant Thing - Reaper Bones - ?????

      I got this from Stoneskull...don't know the actual SKU.
      Bear - Reaper Bones - ??????

      I have no idea the SKU on this bear - it came with Bones 3 core. He was my first attempt to paint for display, instead of tabletop.
      More Cultists and a Circle - Reaper Bones - 77351

      I tried to get a glowy effect on the circle...I still like the first cultist I did a little better...
      Tombstone - Reaper Bones - ?????

      From Bones 3 Graveyard
      Necromancer - Reaper Bones - 77283

      I hate the paint job I did on her...she's the last mini I painted using only Army Painter Paints...
      Level Up! - Reaper Learn to Paint Kit - 08907

      And so, I leveled up (I have no clue where the gnome went, and the pirate apparently needs a touch-up)
      Adventuring Kid - Reaper Dark Haven Legends - 03783

      And so, I tried to apply what I learned and also do NMM...this kid didn't turn out so great. But I tried!
      Hot Foot - Reaper ReaperCon 2017 Mousling -  01616

      My FIRST MOUSLING!!!! I'm still really happy about how the bubbling lava came out. Also my lesson in painting before assembly.
      Bandit - Reaper Bones - ?????
      And so, I went back and tried speed painting something...
      Lizardman Archer - Reaper Bones - 77425

      Speed painted to test Eldar colors...
      Wrapping Dragon - Reaper Special Edition - 05193

      I finally start to be getting shading and eyes! Yay!
      Christmas Speed Paints - Reaper - ???, 77436, 77435, 77433, 01552

      And so, I now speed paint at a much higher quality than I even slow painted at in the beginning.
      I feel like 2017 was great. 92 painted miniatures later, I think my skill has improved drastically. I hope my skill keeps improving in 2018!

      These are what I finished painting this year, a year that was somewhat abbreviated by world events. Really, this is what I painted in the last six months, since political dismay kept me from the miniatures table for approximately eight months after the last US Presidential election.
      This year I painted my first Reaper Warlord figures who were also my first oversized werewolves, 77754 the Rageclaw Slayer, and 77755, Aislinn, Shadow Tracker.
      Nearly everything I painted was for the White Wolf World of Darkness and Exalted.
