  1. I'll be driving to the Con from McKinney each day. So I can help with rides if you're in the area as well.
  2. Very cool, and thanks! But since I'm a local, is it possible to replace it at the Denton store?
  3. Pepperidge farms remembers...
  4. Thanks for the sympathies! We will someday recover and rebuild! :p I picked out this particular one because it had all of the T-pin's "handle" inside the metal skull. Compared to another T-pin I have, I can see it broke on the first bend. My DIY one still does the trick though, just not as fancy looking
  5. (brief moment of silence) Poor thing only made it through 2 or 3 uses. Oh well, back to my trusty paperclip and the metal skull goes into the jar for next year's melt table.
  6. <<removed link in case it breaks some rule, but it is easily found if you search google for it>>
  7. I felt bad about using the VIP line for dropping off our entries. I didn't know that early on it basically cut in front of the non-VIP folks. I'd suggest have two completely separate lines that can work autonomously from each other. Maybe the camera light box is where they come together. I'd love to see more things moved to the Reapercon website. I've been pushing RCon to all my gaming groups and FLGS but the lack of information on the main website was a challenge. It was harder to convince folks to buy an entry ticket to attend classes that won't be visible for several weeks. Sa
  8. I had no problem with the mixed format during the auction. I was a little confused on when the raffle drawings would happen over the course of the Con, so I threw them in just before the awards ceremony. If the raffle times were posted someplace, I must have missed it.
  9. Does anyone know if we can drop off MSP Open contest entries tonight?
  10. Splitting hairs, but I am painting the one I own with the premise that when done I'd swap it out with his bare one. But if this medals I'm not sure how I'd feel about parting with it. So the risk is showing the current one as WIP and then deciding to give him the quick "table top" version later. So I'll just buy another one and paint it again. Won't be the first time I've painted the same thing twice (essentially)
  11. Somehow the stars aligned for me too. I registered on my phone, while walking to a restaurant in a downtown area. I was sweating a failure, but none hath appeared! And ditto on it not changing again next year (unless it becomes a simple "amazon" like experience with 1. Browse, 2. Add to Cart 3. Checkout and done!)
  12. I think I will be ready for ReaperCon, but I messed up a little bit on what to submit to the MSP Open. It all started when I offered to paint the mini of another player in my weekly D&D game in my quest to eliminate monochrome minis. I don't charge a penny, but just do it for fun/practice/and maybe to sucker introduce others into the painting hobby. The problem is this mini is really coming out nicely (I might have jinxed my self on the remaining parts) and am leary in making sure I get it back in time and competition condition just before the con. It is certainly my top contender to su
  13. Regardless of what faction you pick, you all are already a member of the Maggotcrown.
  14. Worked! Did while walking downtown on mobile. Y'all are cleared to buy your!
  15. Everybody hang back at noon. I'll test out buying the tickets and will report back how it goes. The you guys can all buy yours... :p
  16. My guess would be that GEM bought them as add-ons, instead of seeing that they came free with the ticket. But really his subconscious just wanted more SWAG! :)
  17. Don't overload on classes. You can physically register for 5 classes in a day, but will it register with your brain afterwards? Spread them out if you can. Bring hand sanitizer, battery power source to recharge stuff, portable light if you have it, glasses/magnification, brushes, and a notebook. Basic wet palletes should be readily available. Take lots of notes. I've always kick myself for not writing down paint colors or technique steps when I try to replicate stuff I learned 1 month after the Con. Take lots of pictures of the mini's in the contest area.
  18. And where is the annual "Painting Hot Chicks" class go? Did 2019 Reapercon get gypped? KIDDING! :D
  19. So what do I get out of registering? Seems like it's just a reminder not to register for two classes at the same time, but it'll still be a bum rush to buy the actual class tickets whenever they get released. Also what channel/ method will the official ticket purchase date/time be announced? I want to make sure I'm not caught off guard when the time comes.
  20. When purchasing goes live, what page do we have to be at to actually purchase the class tickets? I'm hoping it something like: 1. Login, if not already done so. 2. Click on your name in top right corner and select "My Schedules" 3. Click on "View Schedule" for your short list of classes registered/bookmarked. 4. (being hopeful here) Click the "purchase ticket" button next to each class with tickets still available. 5. Go to a cart and checkout. Also, how will we be notified when registration is open? I heard VIPs get 1 day earlier, but will the ann
  21. Last year there were tons of games being played, which is awesome! I would like to see some variety though. D&D is always great, but give me some Paranoia, Call of Cthulhu, Shadowrun, and other less often seen games. I also hope to run a Ghostbusters game.
  22. On android their app has 1k downloads, was last updated on 4/3/2018, and has a 1.4 star rating. So I consider that defunct and recommend just sticking with a web browser (on phone or computer) :) @TripleH, Hopefully you have smart phone and decent data service coverage at your work so you can try the Growtix site from your phone's web browser. I did it just now and it works fine. I can even still see my class purchases from last year.
  23. Oh I get the logistics of manufacturing. Nothing is free, but we're not talking rocket science here. Surely there will be development, new mold development, testing, trouble shooting, etc etc. but 3 years from now everyone in the industry would know Reaper has the gold standard in clog prevention. I'll admit it may not actually pay off as intended. 5/8ths of an inch of plastic with a slight taper sounds like it would help clogs, but I can't say that a slight air pressure build up when inserting it would be a problem. Or alignment issues. But hey, great things can start with a simple sentenc
  24. Just a thought, but did you enter in the CVV code for your credit card? It was pretty easy to miss on the form, but it's there.
  25. Good Show! Worked wonderfully. I can imagine we will have a lot of Very Important Painters (that's what VIP stands for right?) at the con. Thanks!
