  1. Considering that their room rate normally that was quoted to me just now was $159/night normally........im sure they will get a decent rate.
  2. For those of you waiting for CMoN orders, I'm sorry to break your hearts, but they tend not to care too much about their store orders as much as they care about their KS stuff. The Mrs and I, last year, worked their CMoN expo in March, got credit and purchased stuff that month with it. About 6-7 months later (and this was with a few friends that know ppl in the company trying to push it along) our orders arrived. They are pretty permanently back logged in their store and they seem to be ok with that since, in the end, they have your money already. But, the best I can say is good luck....and may the odds be ever in your favor.
  3. That...is a "flesh golem". THIS is a flesh gollum:
  4. Since you are working on glazes, on a discrete location of the skin (like on a foot) try thinning some purple (preferably a mid to shadow purple) and glaze it into the shadows. Also, your work is coming along quite nicely since your first miniature posted here!
  5. Pretty sure they ran out. But as the song goes "dream on, dream on, dream on. Dream until your dream comes true".
  6. I kind of think it's an interesting take on an almost "monochrome" effect. It also gives it an old monster movie feel imo. I kind of think each of the shades are different enough that they provide suitable enough contrast. I'm really digging the oil painting feel I get from it Aaron. I always enjoy seeing how you do each miniature a little differently.
  7. It's actually looking more like my wife's Deathwing than my Magmaw. Also, have you tried mixing a drop of the red into the white and putting a thin line where you have the red and the scales meet. Try it in a test area first tho. It should give it a glowing look and it should counter balance the dark and make it pop.
  8. 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.
  9. Not your fault. Kids are gonna be kids, I have two nephews and a niece so I know that kids can be noisy which was why I didn't say anything. However, repetitive sounds are my pet peeve and pushed mah buttons slightly.
  10. If their flan isn't up to Cuban standards.....I will personally hold you accountable for getting my hopes up.
  11. You don't need fancy tape. If you have making tape like this: All you have to do is cut to the desired length and stick it a few times to a shirt. That way most of the tack is off and it won't pull your paint. And voila, no mess.
  12. I believe they've tried this before and if memory serves, it was pretty hit or miss on the tech actually working.
  13. I usually hate wet pallets for the same "runny paint" reasons. Last year, the instructors made the wet pallets for my classes and I hate a pretty bad time of it. But this ReaperCon I got a bit more experienced with setup (also from making wet pallets for ppl at CMoN expo paint and takes) and realized that if I press both sides into the damp paper towel it helped with water control significantly. Then I could easily drag corners out of the paint and thin it pretty easily. It's sad that it took something so silly to have that lightbulb moment. Also, what brushes did you upgrade from and to?
  14. I'm sorry but there is nothing worse then leftover Taco Bell...it ranks up there with room temperature fries and when the soda machine runs out of syrup lol.
  15. Your lack of taste buds and your intestinal fortitude never ceases to amaze me....to have such a fondness for something only people high at 2am crave is phenomenal.
  16. @odinsgrandson makes his own. It's a really clever process too.

  18. You shall from henceforth be known as "8-bit Bedlam"!
  19. The funny thing is....I didn't see anyone with old reaperbucks though.
  20. And also blocked the person behind his bid....lol
