    Reaper at Origins 2019?

    Weird question, but why was this moved from Reaper General, which claims to be about "all things Reaper" to "Off Topic Rampancy"? It's explicitly about Reaper not being at Origins. Doesn't that have to do with "all things Reaper?"

    Pony Bowl Team Fantasy Football

    I'm so glad that I don't play Bloodbowl or whatever these fantasy football things are for, or I might very well have broken down and backed this thing. It's hilarious, though.

    First Legion Fantasy Line

    I like the villager sets, especially some of the add-on villager extras, but I'm trying to talk myself out of backing it. The renders look really nice on a lot of the stuff, though. Really, really nice...

    Reaper at Origins 2019?

    Ooof. Reaper's ceding the miniatures front to Wizkids? That's not great.

    Depths of Savage Atoll - 3D Printable Tabletop Models

    Those boats are pretty darn cool.

    BattleSystems - Fantasy Terrain 2

    I'm not familiar with Battlesystems products. They're cardboard buildings?

    City of Tarok: 3D printable medieval fantasy houses

    I don't have a 3-D printer, but I'm strongly tempted to back this for if and when I ever wind up with one...

    Reaper at Origins 2019?

    There's also the whole "interacting directly with the clientele and making a good impression" thing that I would think would be a benefit at a convention, but I guess I'm in the minority. Might as well not even bother with conventions at all if the companies you like basically don't feel like you're worth it.

    Reaper at Origins 2019?

    Man, that sucks. Half the reason I wanted to go to Origins was to compete in the speed painting contest again, see if I could pull off another win. At least I managed it once before they cut their participation. There are those of us who can't go to Reapercon. It's starting to feel like too many companies (like Paizo some years back) are just doing their own conventions and ignoring those of us who can't attend them.

    Reaper at Origins 2019?

    Did they say why they weren't going to be there this year?

    Reaper at Origins 2019?

    For the last three years, I've gotten to attend Origins in Ohio, and have really loved doing the Reaper Speedpaint (and even won last year). I was hoping to go and participate in the Speedpaint again this year, but I was going through the Origins 2019 event schedule and didn't see a single entry from Reaper. Is Reaper not going to be at Origins this year, or at least not hosting any events?

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I've torn apart pre-assembled Bones miniatures in the past, when I wanted to get at part of the figure that I couldn't reach because of assembly, but it's usually not been much of an issue. I haven't tried assembling much in Bones 4 yet, though.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I use a pin-vise drill and a jeweler's saw for pewter figures. I find the saw to be worthless on Bonesium, not sure about the Bones Black. I was not thrilled with the resilience of it when I was removing an integrated base from my first Dreadmere figure the other day, but it wasn't horrible. Just not as easy as Bonesium has always been. For someone who wants my minis to be on 1" diameter bases (usually made from Basius pads), that was a bit of a sticking point.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Yeah, but WK makes Displacer Beasts, so there's that... But otherwise, aside from some translucent spell effects gimmicks, I overall prefer Reaper Bones for aesthetics as well as material. I'm not entirely sure how I feel about Bones Black over the Bones 3 material, though.

    Raid on the Temple of Serpent

    Good looking miniatures, and very inventive, but I just don't need them, sadly. I don't have much in the way of Aztec style cultures at present, and my ogres are too savage to fit the role of conquistadors. Probably for the best, as I've already got waaay too many open KSs at the moment.
