Quick question: for those of you who got a swag bag, did you get anything from other vendors in it?Was there a Darksword mini in yours? Also, was there supposed to be something about the Dreadmere setting in it?

I've seen some say they received a Darksword mini. However I did not.

There were a couple pages in the convention guide describing the 4 Dreadmere factions. That was all.

Oh. And you asked about other vendors. There was a bottle of Stynylrez primer and the plastic miniature case that has been talked about. From Happy Seppuku I received a Base Texture Stamp, the clockwork one.

I think that was it.

My swag bag didn't have the Darksword mini, the Stynylrez primer, the X-case, the convention guide or anything from the Dreadmere setting other than the River Widows mini. I did get a package of nice looking basing foliage from Frontline games and the Happy Seppuku Clockwork pad. I guess it was luck of the draw. It was worth it even without some of the vendor extras.

I'm thinking there would have been limited stock of the vendor extras.

I jumped on the swag bag pretty quick, it just took a while to get to me.

Very true big guy. We all ordered the bags knowing the vendor items might not be in them, so any vendor goodies we happened to get were lagniappe. I'm not too sure it mattered how fast people ordered though. I was checking the store often until it listed and ordered one right away. Just luck of the draw. Besides, I'm very happy with my swag. I really wanted the Reapercon exclusive ♡paints and minis more than anything else. The other stuff would've been great but they weren't con exclusives. I'll order the Darksword archer along with a few others and I'm already backing the X-Case kickstarter.

 

The only Reaper swag mini that wasn't in my bag was Hotfoot, and I wasn't as into that one. Moustopheles was in there and he was the one I really wanted. As far as luck of the draw goes my bag was a nice score. Even snagged a rock in a blister. :winkthumbs:

Got the primer and the base stamp, not much else. But if these bags were supposed to have been the spares from the con itself, shouldn't they all have been filled? Otherwise some congoers would have been shorted.

Key word "extra". Reaper guessed on what the attendance would be based on inflation rates of previous years attendance and asked for some more. Vendors gave them what they could. It's an understood thing that the vendor stuff is limited and if it runs out it runs out (it has before). This is why they made the policy that a con/VIP ticket is for attendees only and can't be mailed. To get a better understanding of how much they need so they don't run out.

 

Also, not spare bags, but leftover items. They had to put them all together to send to you guys. They didn't have a bunch of bags left premade lying around.

Hotfoot was the VIP bag mousling.

      So, being bored I went through and sorted out my Sophie collection...
       
       
      I know there's an 'alternate' version of the 1408, and I also skipped Bones. this is metal only. 
      And of course, it also skips the 12" Resin version used as an award in the Reaper Masters painting competition. 
       
      Did I leave any out?
      (Not asking if I OWN all yet. I'm still looking for one or two in the list)

      As my second mini I started the Masterbox World of Fantasy Lizard Mount/Sci-Fi girl combo (previous WIP post) but when I saw pictures of this mini online I just had to get one and drop everything else.
      Played Tomb Raider from the first one so this one pushes my buttons. Found one for sale and snapped it up. Assembly is finished. I didn't like the look of the Whip, so I replaced it with some braided wire.
      The Base I will expand to add a pit full of spikes. Can't wait to start priming/painting!

      So - my next small project - I cannot keep with just one ... errrr.
       
      After having a small but nice talk with @SGHawkins09 and being sent home by the doc to cure a sickness I recently picked up, I had to decide what to do next.
       
      As all those wonderful and enthusiatic responses to my previous projects (I mean it - I never had so much response in such a short time) made it near to impossible to just sign off from the forums and disappear into the wilderness, I agreed to take on a different plan.
       
      I just grabbed into my miniature box and took some figures to paint them and get them done. And then it struck me: I am at the Reaper Forums yet I missed to paint a Reaper miniature.
       
      So I picked out ... errr - let me see ... Troll Slayer Sophie! Yay! - hey! Hooooraaay! Who the heck is Troll Slayer Sophie and when did I buy her?
       
      It seems I already started to paint her, but then decided otherwise, stripped *chuckles* her and put her away. Hm. Good point to start her all over again.
       

       

       
      As I chose her to be the figure I wanted to paint next I had to think about the color scheme I wanted to use.
       
      Well. I had no idea. I never really cared about fantasy style, so it never meant anything to me. The things I know about are modern or sci fi. I played a lot of Warhammer40k back in the days. I even wrote fanfiction stories which included the Imperial Guard and the Sisters of Battle ...
       
      ... Sisters of Battle ...
       

       
      hm. that could make a great colour scheme. Works well with the flesh tones and still contrasts it. And as Sophie is a demon, the demon/witch hunter theme fits her rather perfectly.
       
      I'll take it!
       
       
       
      Well then - primed her and started painting.
       

       

       
      But I am not sure - do I want to give her skin the grim dark appearance of an Adepta or a more Succubi-like appearance like ... this one:
       
      Succubus
       
       
      Suggestions?

      The last of my July paint binge is Sophie.

      Hello again, everyone!  It's been a little while, but I finally have another mini to show off!  If you're curious, you can check out her work-in-progress thread here.
       
      I had an absolute heart attack right as I was putting the finishing touches on the mini:  I almost dropped her!  I ended up catching her against my box of bases at the last second, but the force actually bent the barrel of her rifle, and cracked the paint!  I think I was able to straighten it out, and there did not appear to be any chipped paint, so hopefully I am in the clear, but my heart probably just died a little...  
       
      Originally, I tried to modify her to make her more of a werewolf hunter and wanted to put her on an elaborate base, but somehow that never quite came together.  In the end, she just looks like a more modern Western-themed mini.
       
      Anyway, without any further ado, here she is!
       




       
      Thanks a bunch for looking, and I hope you like here!
