    Mars Attacks!

    Gone and sold off on clearance just a few months ago. They don't even offer the Mantic Points stuff anymore (missed my chance at getting the Martian Zombies)

    Discussion of scale indicators in the store

    Most problematic is that they shoot the minis from a top down angle instead of straight on, completely making the tiny letter unreliable as a measuring gauge as it's nearly impossible to tell exactly how tall they are when the letters' height is obscured/inflated by 50% or more depending on the angle.

    Bears Head Miniatures - Stag & Tiger

    Came in thinking they would be from the zombie animals kickstarter, stayed for the nice paintjobs ;-)

    Availiblilty of Products

    Limited items like the repercon bag are not going to be restocked, if they have some you'd best buy them before they run out.

    Brush Issue

    I actually forgot that brush-only orders ship free, and they ship quickly as well.

    Paint Sku's By Color

    Only inventory I do is with Paint Rack (android). There is sorting option in the app that you could use, although I find it's a little hit and miss as it's based on supplied color swatches which are not always exact matches anyway).

    Brush Issue

    Get them from Jackson's Art - free shipping level is easy to reach, and you can get #1s for about 11 bucks and #2s for 13.

    What do you do with your hobby related ephemera?

    Some stuff hangs in the hobby area, some gets stuck on cases and palettes, duplicates of cards and such get used as coasters. The one Reapercon magnet I got is on my vortex mixer.

    Help Matching 29830 HD "Ruddy Brown"

    There should still be some bottles out in the wild, might even find some floating around in a bay somewhere.

    SWAG Bags for sale when? If?

    If they are going to continue to offer the exclusive minis and paint online after the show, there's not much point in selling the bags post-con - especially if they're not cheaper than buying the stuff separately. Keep selling the stuff individually post-con, and put any extra bags in rotation with the regular retail order swag. It's funny, as a few years ago they were resistant to the idea of offering anything from the bag separately whenever the idea was brought up. It makes more sense, and allows them to move the extra stock without having to worry about running out of stuff or dedicating more time to assembling bags.

    Were-Alligator 77447 with Basing

    I'd also suggest using a small piece of sponge or the foam that's usually included with minis, to apply different tones to give a more natural look to the dirt/rocks.

    SWAG Bags for sale when? If?

    I think it's the lack of any third party vendor stuff, not just product samples, that really makes this years bag 'light'. Usually there was a lot of vendor ad materials, a few discount codes, as well as other useful things for gamers and hobbyists. This year was just a handful of Reaper's own advertising, in duplicate. The con attendees absolutely should be taken care of first, but last year they were clear that the bags being assembled post-con would be missing more things as they released them in waves. They also waited several business days before putting any online, allowing more time to communicate. This year they were up the first business day after the con, with no indication they'd been scaled down. Granted, the people that usually did the communicating are no longer there.

    that's an excellent point, they did mention it was about 500 more than last year.

    SWAG Bags for sale when? If?

    FYI, The paints are now also available, making none of the Reaper stuff truly exclusive. Search for Reapercon on the store to find it. I forget about the mimic - It had fallen into the box and thankfully went unnoticed by the dog while I was at work. They do make nice stuff at Galadoria (can't wait for the 2nd KS to ship). Wouldn't be an issue of they didn't say multiple times, especially on Reaper Live, that every bag gets them. Oh well, 2 years in a row is enough, lesson learned - next time wait for the individual stuff to be added to the store and save money.

    SWAG Bags for sale when? If?

    Got mine today - much like last year, the value is missing from the bag. No Darksword or Bombshell mini, no cool little plane mini, old/past year's pen, small water-cup, 2 of every Reaper advertisement - it was simply missing a lot of what was shown from the stuff posted by people that got them on-site. Seeing as they sell the con minis on the website, the only thing of any real rarity is the 3 paints - and those are clearly not worth $50 to acquire. At least I got a notebook and Badger's sample primer this year, and the wooden die is quite nice. Next year, I'll just get the stuff I want off the site, instead of over-paying for a handful of things I don't. Anyone who missed out this year, you're lucky to not have missed much - get the con minis (including the attendee only one) from the store and save.

    LTPK - MSP HD = ?

    With the discontinuation of the HD line, what's going to happen to the Learn to Paint Kits? Granted it's only 3 paints in total, but are there plans to substitute or re-tool them? Also, are there any more kits coming out in the future?
  20. I use the 99 red sable series as beater brushes - they're almost as good as the 33's. I found the 101's to have too small of a belly and point for our uses, and the bump too far back to be helpful for how I hold the brush - I like the 98's better than the 101.

    Paint Track Apps?

    Looks like the name changed sometime between the B4 Kickstarter and retail release. Looks like the same color.

    Paint Track Apps?

    You can filter out by product line in the mega-filter, but I don't think there's a way to filter out individual bottles in the current/selected lines

    June releases from Bones 4

    The Aug stuff just came out, that gives you the time frame of when we'll know - so try back this time next month for next month's releases.
  24. Sadly, August releases wont be until later this week, or next. They did put the extra stock from Bones 4 KS up, but no retail releases yet. Sadly yes, this appears to be the new business model. They'll occasionally release info buried inside a FB comment (if you can stomach reading that group), or inside of one of their videos, but their own website is barren of information.
  25. They take quite a beating before losing their point, hold a decent amount of moisture/paint, and make great work-horse brushes. I bought online - they're usually cheaper than in-store.
