  1. This concept kind of reminds me of the eccentric Mad Hermit from B2 Keep on the Borderlands; its a great chance to really role-play. Good supporting roles like that make the game so much more memorable. You could throw Captain Trips into a myconid section of an adventure too; throw in Zuggtmoy (she seems to be behind everything--I think someone at WoTC had a black mold problem and is projecting) and you've got a serious quest going.
  2. NEVER--Taste the Rainbow! The Weasel must be licked! But seriously, I think my mask is going to get poked once or twice before I realize not to. And here's betting I will not be alone in this. I think that for those that might chafe at the cost (not that much really...) and more importantly the class size restrictions to in-person, that this is the best argument. In person you get to have a level of interaction that online simply can't compare with. I consider it paying for the privilege. But then I don't know how social distancing will work in those tiny class spaces. I understand that last year that RCon would have gotten hold of even more conference room space from the hotel, so here's hoping there'll be fewer 10x15' rooms for 12+ people again.
  3. But how will I lick my brushes?
  4. Thinking of Real Genius--"Why are you wearing that ridiculous thing on your head?" "Because if I wear it anywhere else, it chafes..." Yes--Be well first. Heaven knows if anyone is reading this, its a surety that they already have too many (or not enough, I keep getting those confused?) miniatures to paint already. Besides, wiping everything in the box down with hand sanitizer might make things harder to prime.
  5. The guy with the axe wearing a myconid mushroom hat can now no longer be unseen...
  6. I think we should ask on the next ReaperLive! if they are going to be putting random "I got a rock.." in orders again. Was it clear whether it was for "every $40", or just "every $40 and up" order gets a Ghoulie? And finally we should put a bug in Ron's ear early enough in the season to be sure he remembers to get a stock of Coal for December. It gets cold in Denton after all, and Mean Miser Dave only allows him one piece of coal at a time to keep warm in the big drafty rooms of the Ron Hawkins Memorial Office Complex... Bravo on the screen captures; this is crazy good work for those not able to tune in to the broadcasts... We Needs It, My Precious! All your Paints are belong to us!
  7. I see this RCO as the prototype/experimental stage for what will eventually continue to come out of the Reaper online evolution. What I see happening (or at least hope will happen) is that the RCO free classes could be recorded and/or the instructors will be able to have ownership of that collateral; resale or paid access to it for those who need/want it. As Dicey and others have pointed out, many of the instructors and artists have their own pay feed sites already that they use as sources of revenue. I think its wholly plausible that the RCO content get recorded and distributed through those channels, at the discretion of the artists. Further, I see that the RCO classes are totally compatible with the paid "in person" model; you get more direct one-on-one interaction in person--for a price. That access was always very restrictive in both location and quantity; you have to be there, and there were never enough chairs in the classes for everyone that wanted the content. Taking the RCO class gives us the basics and more to try to master the techniques--and to take that progress to a RC class to talk directly to the instructor as a followup.
  8. Hardly going to get much attention in the midst of Pre-ReaperCOnline, but does anyone else miss the Dramatic Chipmunk .gif that Ron hid under the Retailers-"Upcoming Releases"? Whatever source he linked to is now broken, replaced by a lesser than awesome "Opps" message. I just loved that Ron (it seems to fit his perverse sense of humor, so I will continue to accuse him of this) stuck that there to lightly slap our wrists for trying to sneak a peek at stuff perhaps not meant for regular Joe buyers. Even though he's totally without value or use, I kind of miss the suspicious little marmot and I hope he's doing well and might come to visit again one day. Just saying...
  9. The painter next door said he'd empty that box on sight he waited and waited for that box to come around 45 tons of unpainted minis were all they ever found BUT the box came back the very next day, they thought it was a goner but the box came back. It just wouldn't stay away....

    NOW that is hilarious. Ron had mentioned that there might be a return of the Concrud Zombie--I sort of expect it to show up on the Store during Rconline as a special limited time or as supplies last item. Looks like you caught the Crud; best that you keep that guy in quarantine and not open that blister...lol
  11. If these are going to be listed on the Reapermini.com Store, where will the Swag boxes be listed under (Accessories, Metal figures, Plastic figures--What is the best way to find them on the Store once they become available? As fast as limited inventory items fly out off the shelves (anybody else miss the Ma'al Drakar resin warehouse find or the Bonus box from a month or so ago?) it seems wise to know exactly where to be F5'ing the hell out of to get to the listing in time. *What is the plan for any of the individual components of the boxes that are left over--will they be made available once the boxes are gone? Obviously the paints (with exceptions) will eventually be put up for sale, and the pretty much all the figures will either reappear or be remade into Bones eventually, but what about any of the limited resin pieces and Con gear? I kind of expect that the extra con stuff might end up as Store order bonuses until they run out, but if we are willing to pay cash now wouldn't that be better than giving it away or sitting on it until it becomes a warehouse find in a year or three? asking for a friend...
  12. Are sales restricted to only the full boxes, or are any of the individual components in the boxes (paints, figures, etc) going to be made available at the same time, or at a later date?
  13. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone in this thread--I have been able to participate in the Box of Goodwill three times now; this the first time I was put early in my particular round though. I have REALLY enjoyed seeing the pictures of what everyone has picked out of their boxes--it's really cool to see someone take something that I passed over--I didn't see the potential, or just didn't see it when I had it in my hands, but the next person did. I especially get happiness when I see something I put in the box get eagerly snatched up; it validates this entire process and practice. Being early in the round gave me the opportunity to see everything that was there, and to know more or less, barring addition/subtractions, what people down the line were getting a chance at. I'm just very grateful to be part of this group and to have the opportunity to interact with you all in these Interesting Times that we are enduring. RConline is only a few weeks away--not the same by a longshot, but its what we got.
  14. I like Inarah's idea--One years' famine is next years Feast....
