    IIRC, Hangar 18 usually carries da Vinci brushes, which I consider the equal of the W&Ns*. I don't recall seeing W&N S7 brushes, but I wasn't really looking so it's certainly possible.


    * Raphael, da Vinci, and W&N Kolinsky sable brushes are usually thought to be very comparable -- that's certainly been my experience. Some people include Rosemary and Co. brushes in that grouping, but I haven't tried them to be able to say. But each brush company's premiere line does have a slightly different feel (more or less snap, bigger or smaller belly for a given length of hairs, whatever).

    Thank you I asked for those cause it was the only ones I knew of so anything comparable is just fine thank you!

    my class should be beginner friendly, but it's not on saturday. i'll be doing my dragon painting class again

    Im hoping growtix is better this year and we are able to snag some classes even if it's beginner ones.


    We just ordered our tickets and are excited! Does anyone know if there's a booth or company at the con that sells Windsor and newton series 7 brushes?

    Does anyone recall or know if the scheduled games have an admission cost? 


    No cost as fast as I recall and we played in one of the dreadmere games that was part of the reapercon story

    Latest semi-official or wild guess date for registration to open?

    If I remember correctly I bought mine last year round about the end of may early June? They had already been on sale a few weeks before hand (correct me if i'm grievously incorrect) there should be plenty of time for you to get them

    There is a pit, tho I feel it isn’t as good as the Garden Inn. 


    However, they had a happy hour after five that provided free beer. So perhaps dangle that.

    To be exact it's from 530-730 aaaaaaaand it's not just beer but also any mixed drinks with just 2 ingredients like whiskey and coke or gin and cran....I made sure to do the research....lol

    I like it so far!

    Maybe try to blend those colours were they meet for smoother transitions.

    But this is a great pattern!

    Once I put the highlights on I was planning on putting a glaze over it all in hopes it'll smooth out the blends and transitions

    It is! :) Talin gave me a sneak peek of this very picture at Reapercon last year (and we both agreed that this version wasn't quite as cosplay friendly lol, but still very awesome). If I'm able to attend this year, I plan to go as Wild West Sophie from a few years ago. I've already found a pair of feathered wings on ebay that should do nicely (as in they look pretty close and aren't too big).



    --OneBoot :D

    Wait as in the miniature? Cause that's what I was meaning if so awwwww man i'm getting 50

    I'm doing quite well.  I just looked and I did get your PM but somehow never replied.  Bad Dilvish! Bad!  No cookie for you!


    I'm not on the forums as much lately as they blocked them from work, so I only get on when I'm not busy at home or from my phone: and if you read any of the posts from my phone keyboard, you'll realize whiy don't post from my phone much (I have fat thumbs).


    I just texted George the other week.  He has been going through some stuff.  He let me know that things were getting better, but that it is unlikely that he will be making RCon this year.  I told him that he will be missed.


    I however am still intending of going this year.  Right now, we are just figuring out if Awesome Wife will be attending as well.  She's started playing DnD and has ordered a mini to paint so after 20+ years of marriage I appear to have Stockholm Syndromed her into becoming a gamer.  Biggest road block is that the school year usually starts the week before Labor Day so we would have to figure things out with the kids.

    Its no biggie I know how things get and i'm truly sad to hear George won't be able to make it he took us under his wing and showed us the ropes our first time last year, he will definitely be missed. I am glad though to hear he's doing better and that you should still be able to make it. Congrats on the new convert lol! It's good to hear from you

  11. On a different note speaking of people being ready for next year and going has anyone heard from dilvish or knarthex? I hadn't seen them on in a while and have pmd them just to check in but hasn't heard anything, erase this if it is too off topic

    I'm going!  My first time even!  I got lucky at my company's late Christmas party (postponed due to snow) and won two round trip tickets.  So I have that and just now reserved a hotel room.  I'm so excited.

    First time going is an amazing event ours was last year. Meet as many people as you can, make a list of things you want to try/ learn and first and foremost there is usually an after hours meetup at the firepit by the pool definitely try to make it. Also check the reapercon forums when it's going on people are usually posting in real time about what's going on. I'll be wearing something red everyday (obviously) come find me!

    Buglips and I are booked. I had to email Andrew with Hilton because we need to check in on Tuesday and check out on Monday. He was super nice and helpful. I sent him all of my info in the initial email (Hilton membership number, room preference, etc.) last night so this morning I had a confirmation email that the reservation was made. Only hiccup was I hadn't given Buglips' name so I emailed back to have his name added to the reservation; Andrew had that taken care of very quickly as well.

    The entire staff there was so nice and so helpful every step of the way

  15. So not much more painting done but I greenstuffed some conversions. I didn't like his skin he had draped on his back it had like a reptilian texture to ot and not alot so I made it into a fur texture first time attempting it on a mini. Then I added wood texture to the axe handle it came out ok but a little more bulky than I wanted. Let me know what you think!

  16. So again normally for this quality it would only take a lil while but with work and  life it's taking me longer.  Ok so finished the face and hair the face still seems a little expressionless but it's only my second one and only the first of this size(other was an ogre). I tried green eyes(they're thr colors of my characters eyes)  but I dunno maybe too bright? Also tried some freehand black around the eyes that started out as me trying to line/ separate them. Please leave me feedback faces and skin are one of my big things im practicing on!

  17. Was up late last night so went ahead and swapped out the weapons the bottom of the axe is slightly off but all in all I think it came out nice and I like the looks of these better more fitting of a barbarian. The dagger fit perfectly in the hole I drilled in his hand. Also may have to repaint the tops and bottoms of his fingers.

  18. Ok so added the highlights and then glazed it all to bring it together. The closeups are somewhat un flattering but I think it looks ok, need to work on painting flesh still. Next I will touch up the face then move on to the hair. You can see ive removed the weapons I didn't really like them so i'm going to give him one of the axes from the weapons sprues from bones 3. Whelp let me know what ya'll think!
