  1. The Bridge of Khazad-dûm “The Balrog reached the bridge. Gandalf stood in the middle of the span, leaning on the staff in his left hand, but in his other hand Glamdring gleamed, cold and white. His enemy halted again, facing him, and the shadow about it reached out like two vast wings. It raised the whip, and the thongs whined and cracked. Fire came from its nostrils. But Gandalf stood firm. 'You cannot pass,' he said. The orcs stood still, and a dead silence fell. 'I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. You cannot pass. The dark fire will not avail you, flame of Udûn. Go back to the Shadow! You cannot pass.' The Balrog made no answer. The fire in it seemed to die, but the darkness grew. It stepped forward slowly onto the bridge, and suddenly it drew itself up to a great height, and its wings were spread from wall to wall; but still Gandalf could be seen, glimmering in the gloom; he seemed small, and altogether alone: grey and bent, like a wizened tree before the onset of a storm. From out of the shadow a red sword leaped flaming. Glamdring glittered white in answer. There was a ringing clash and a stab of white fire. The Balrog fell back and its sword flew up in molten fragments. The wizard swayed on the bridge, stepped back a pace, and then again stood still. 'You cannot pass!' he said.
  2. well.. I have learned that I don't have a good space or lighting for large miniatures... retook some pics with different setting and after trying several backgrounds that were not big enough I just settled on a my light blue wall...now I know what I want for Christmas LOL... have a happy holiday everyone.
  3. Thank you for so much detailed information!!!
  4. Going to use the time off from the holidays to get as much as i can of the chronoscopes and similar figures for my scifi campaign. all primed and ready to go...
  5. Thanks! I will try a white background or maybe a grey, just need to get enough lighting as the mini is to big for my small amazon light box. LOL
  6. Hi All, First time posting...been working to up my skill in the hobby and thought i should start posting to get some help and inspiration from fellow hobbyist.

  7. This was only my 2nd reapercon and I took several classes and learned a whole lot!! so first off thank you to all the instructors and organizers for putting this together. While i think its important to have high level classes so the veterans and intermediate/advanced painters get better and better, there should still be enough beginner and intermediate classes for us rookies, it did not seem like nearly enough this year....and i know that most of the instructors probably don't want to teach such basic skills. Also I think experts taking these classes to get reaper bucks or points taking a seat away from beginners was contributing to this issue. another point I wanted to make was the cost vs class time. again this is only my 2nd experience at this con but at first i was taken back by the additional cost to each class until i realized that they were 2 hour classes not 1 hour so i did not mind the extra cost. then i had 2 of my 4 classes cut short because the instructor did not have material to cover all 2 hours or they were wrapping up to get lunch because of the timing of the class. both unfortunate and I'm sure not the fault of the instructors but I cant help but feel a bit cheated at the money I spent to get live Instruction instead of used that money on a mini and watched a youtube video... Either way I still had a very fun time and I enjoyed getting to meet lots of people and get some phenomenal help on my painting techniques I'm looking forward to the next one already! Razalas
