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.

      Last night I took a painting lesson from a friend who happens to have won many awards for mini painting and this year won Grand Master in Lock and Load 2018. So for the model of choice we choose to paint the Reapercon Sophie. We both painted one and this is what I ended up with.
      First model I have painted fully in maybe 10 years.
       
      Gothic Sophie.

      Yet another new thread!
       
      (At some point I really should think about starting a blog, or whatever the cool kids do these days, instead of cluttering up the forum with my stuff.)
       

       
      While it's possibly a banning offence, I've gotta admit I don't particularly care for Sophie or her various minis, but this one really leapt out at me.
       
      I may have made things extra hard for myself by fully assembling everything, but she has little, dainty feet so I was never going to be able to pin her to a cork.
       

       
      Started with her skin (1:1 Rosy Skin/Beastly Brown > Flesh Wash > 1:1 Rosy Skin/Beastly Brown > 1:1:1 Rosy Skin/Light Skin/Beastly Brown), I was trying to give her a tan, but I don't think it's as simple as adding brown to the skin colour, however the colour I did end up with is rather nice.
      It's hard to see, but she also has (slightly googly) eyes, lip and eye makeup (1:1:1:2 Rosy Skin/Light Skin/Beastly Brown/Hexed Lichen) and eyebrows (Scarlett Red), I also basecoated her hair while I had the Scarlett Red out.

      I finished up this lovely lady last night. She was wonderfully sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. I really enjoyed the details on her and she was a lot of fun to paint. 
      I always mean to paint a Halloween figure before Halloween but am usually too busy to actually manage it. I got this figure while at Reapercon though and decided it was meant to be, so I put aside a couple of other things to make time for her. 
       

       

       

       

       
      I had a lot of technical issues with her due to my clumsiness - I dropped her THREE times which resulted in extensive repair work and having to reattach her to the pumpkin each time.  There’s no indentation or any other indication for how she’s meant to be attached to the pumpkin and assembly is not my strong suit so I struggled a bit with that part. The way I have her attached leaves her foot hanging past the base by a good bit so I’ll need to build the base up on a little bit of cork, but she looked the most correct to me this way. (She is currently still sitting on top of foam tape and the craft paint bottle that I used as a holder, I just painted them black for pictures.)
       
      I was asked over on facebook how I painted the wings, so I’ll copy that info over here as well:
      I basecoated with MSP Black Indigo. (That’s one of this year’s Reapercon swag bag paints. I think Nightmare Black would probably be fine to use in its place.) Then I layered up using paints from Nocturna’s Imperial Purple Set. They’re Vallejo paints made for Nocturna and I highly recommend both that set and the Crimson Red set. Both sets come with little painting guides and the purple one walks you through how to do both cold purples and warm purples. I went in the warm purple direction starting from the darkest colours and layering up to the lightest. So Imperial Purple > Purple Hex > Amethyst > Witch Purple > Lipstick. 
      Then I glazed over everything with MSP Gothic Crimson which was also a LE Reapercon paint, I think from the 2016 swag bag. (I can’t think of a replacement for that off of the top of my head but it’s a wine-maroon colour.) Then in the areas that I wanted to darken, like the transitions going back into the shadows and the backs of the wings, I glazed with the Black Indigo.

      So, I'm working on the Reapercon 2017 Sophie. I want to paint her to competition level, or at least to the best of my ability. I've already decided several things about her color scheme. 
       
      Her dragon mate is going to be a gold dragon. This is to emphasize my primary choice for her wings and clothes, purple. Her skin is going to be utilizing the golden skin triad. The ground is going to be a red brick, going with the brick carved for it. 
       
      So, here's this far. At this point, I'm blocking in primary colors for the base, since Sophie blocks several parts of the base once she's added.
       

       
      Advice as I go along would be appreciated. I'm going to try to update this with each step. Colors used:
      -09074 Palomino Gold to basecoat the dragon
      -09401 Dragon Red to basecoat the ground

      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)
