    Superfogeys KS

    Here's a FUN one for y'all! The guys at Team Frog Studios (formerly known as Crunchy Frog) have gotten together with the guys that produce the webcomic Superfogeys. Who doesn't need an AWESOME Old Fart Superheroes RPG? You'll all LOVE the figures that you can get with the game too! [/shameless self promotion] So what are you waiting for Reaperinos? Get on over there and help Paul out!! http://www.reapermini.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/#EMO_DIR#/wink.png Kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/481433198/the-superfogeys-adventure-game-by-team-frog-studio Team Frog Studios: http://www.teamfrog.com/ Superfogeys webcomic: http://superfogeys.com/

    CARE PACKAGE UPDATE: I just wanted to let everybody know I've received a good response about the care packages and things are moving along nicely. With any luck the packages will be ready to go out to you all here soon. I ALSO wanted to let everybody know that when the good folks, as in THE MOST SUPER AWESOME EVER, at Reaper got wind of what was going on, they wanted to help out too. That's just the way those crazy kids roll !! They have gone WAY ABOVE AND BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY here and made this a random act of kindness for me as well as all of you. They really stepped up and have donated time, materials, and manpower to get this thing done. PLEASE give a BIG THANK YOU, Shout-Out, and send LOTS of Love and Support to all the GREAT People at Reaper!!! A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU needs to go out to Dave Pugh, Ed Pugh, and Ron Hawkins without whom, none of this would have been possible. You guys truly are AWESOME!! Thank You and Very Best Regards, Gene Van Horne

    Superfogeys KS

    Wow, I appreciate all the support! I'd like to state publicly and for the record, I'm NOT trying to shoulder or assume Mr. Lidberg's debt to his Kickstarter backers. My reaching out in no way absolves Mr. Lidberg of the responsibility he still has to each and every one of you. He will still owe his backers the rewards he promised them during his KS campagin and I encourage you all to continue your efforts in holding him accountable for his actions or lack thereof. That being said, I'm paying it forward the same way a third party stepped up and helped me out during this whole debacle. Without their help I would have never been compensated for the figures I did sculpt for Mr. Lidberg. I don't want any of you to worry about the financial part because I've got that covered. I can't stand by, idly doing nothing. I'm doing this because as Popeye often says, "That's alls I can stands, cause I can't stands no more!" So my offer still stands, anyone who pledged for a reward level that included the Superfogey figures can contact me at evhorne969@gmail.com with the subject "Superfogeys" and I will send them a care package. It won't be the KS reward that Mr. Lidberg still owes you, but it will be fun (which is what this whole thing was supposed to be in the first place!) I'm not accepting any monies for this and these figures are not for sale. Finally, if you are indeed watching any of this Mr. Lidberg, SHAME ON YOU!! Best Regards, Gene

    I was the sculptor on this "project". Anyone who pledged for a reward level that included the Superfogey figures, please contact me at evhorne969@gmail.com With the subject "Superfogeys". I can't do anything about the rulebook or the game, but I CAN do something about the figures. Best Regards, Gene
  8. I was wondering about that since the recent Reapercon Mouseling was the first Mouseling Gene didn't sculpt.(And I don't count those Mouslings done in a different style from several years ago) Nope I'm not getting sick to death of you guys or the Mouslings. Just yet anyway... :D Here's the skinny. Victoria Lamb sculpted a Mousling as a Thank You to Reaper for inviting her to Reapercon last year. Both the Mousling and Reapercon's theme happened to be Western and so Bob's Yer' Uncle!! It also worked out well for me as I was in the process of getting ready to move across the country at the time and wouldn't have been able to fit sculpting one in. Gene P.S. Hmmmmm... A Thor Mousling sounds interesting. For that matter so do the Greek God Mouslings... Mmmmm very interesting ;)

    Who Owns the Design?

    When Reaper buys a spec piece (a sculptor's own design) Reaper owns the IP to the design as well. We as the sculptor/designer can't do anything with it except sell more of the same to Reaper. That's SOP in the industry as a whole. There can be exceptions to that rule, as in Patrick's case, but those are few and far between. I typically ask for right of first refusal. If the company is selling or going belly-up, I ask that they offer me the chance to buy back the IP before anybody else. Gene

    That's what I meant, Its a Gonturzap!!

    Maybe Reaper would allow us some space for a "Gonzurtrap challenge" at Reapercon, much like the beloved VCR Challenge. Instead of converting VCR's, we could convert figures into Gonzurtraps!!

    I don't know about a boxed set, but if I can find the time I might work on my interpretation a bit... Gene

    Thanks to Buglips for turning me onto this thread I did a project like this with a family friend's son years back. He just had this great idea for an armored gargoyle type warrior. It was lots of fun. I agree with Dr. B!! We should definitely encourage this kind of creativity in kids (AND adults too!). Here's my attempt at the MIGHTY GONTURZAP!! Gene

    brown aluminum

    What Erifnogard said. Privateer's Brownstuff is manufactured by Polymeric. It is the "Original Version" of Brownstuff that contains aluminum powder. It was sold by Polymeric as a Gastank Repair Kit back in the day. Polymeric switched to the brown/neutral mix, with no aluminum powder in it, a number of years ago. One of the Privateer sculptors prefers the original recipie of Brownstuff and convinced Privateer to work with Polymeric to bring the old formula back. Happy Sculpting Gene

    Reaper's Artist Con 2013 (KS2 Countdown)

    FWIW, Artistcon has changed quite a few times over the years. Sometimes it's been an open house with a fair number of guests attending, other times it's been a more private affair that hasn't been open to the public. Because of the nature of how Artistcon has changed back and forth between the two, it might be prudent to wait for an official Reaper announcement before making any definite travel plans. Just my two cents, Gene

    Very Nice Work!! I'd buy a set! Gene

    Kneadatite A/B?

    Ditto what psyberwolfe said. A/B is HORRIBLE. I ended up throwing mine away it was so bad. Your best bet is to start with greenstuff in tube form. Gene

    Mousling Mouse House

    Very cool!! Your Mouslings look like they are enjoying their tavern. :) Well Done!! Gene

    Miliput, Greenstuff, or ProCreat?

    If you can find them, go for the tubes of greenstuff vs the strips. There is the same amount of GS in both forms, but the strip has a little cured bit in the center of it that must be cut out before using. The tubes are already seperated for you so there's much less waste. Gene

    Miliput, Greenstuff, or ProCreat?

    Try using baby powder on your hands when you magic sculpt. I actually use a combination of that and gloves. I hate getting stuff stuck all over my hands.
