  1. This is a Jim Fitzpatrick mini I got at Reapercon last year. Finally finished it (I thought), turned my back on it for a work call and my wife found it on the floor by the front door with the sword chewed and mangled by our cat. Any ideas how I can fix it? I straightened it out best I could

    I'm hearing some '80s metal riffs just looking at him. Good stuff; hope you can salvage the cat sabotage. 

    Thank you, now Flirtin' with disaster is going through my head :) the sword is pretty bad, but will still work for tabletop

    Great job!


    A shame about the sword, maybe give him a new one?


    He does remind me of some album covers.


    I remember seeing Molly Hatchet live, great show, brings back some memories. Maybe those old memories touched a long forgotten cord with me, something certainly clicked with me about this figure. Maybe I can tell people the sword is "weathered", yeah, that sounds good

  3. wow, that sounds like a lot of intensive practice! I guess there really isn't a "perfect" system for role playing, and you always have to sacrifice varying degrees of accuracy and realism to make a game playable. Mentioning Hollywood, I have seen the Crossed Swords do a couple demos at dragoncon and they talked a bit about hollywood and movie "fighting". The way they did it was really funny and eye-opening, for me at least

    I have to admit, I was more impressed with Cheddars and IHOP than I was with Hoolihans. It wasn't bad, but it was overpriced for what I got. 

    Mine from hollihans was very good but yeah it was a bit high price. Marcos pizza delivered and was excellent

    Thanks!  Feel free to ask me any questions about the stuff we covered in my weathering class.  Well you can ask about blending or shiny things too, but my answer to those won't be as good as Kuro's or Oneboot's.  lol.



    Thanks I really appreciate that. One thing I really love about this con and the forums is how accessible people are, and how much they are willing to share what they know with others. I am a very "hands on" person and learn best by doing. So I feel like I got more out of the classes where we did a lot painting compared to watching and trying to keep notes. But I take my hat off to all the instructors who donated their time over the weekend to help us. Thank you all

  6. after 13 and a half hours of mostly boring driving (once I got out of the Dallas area), finally home. Great trip, met lots of cool people and heard much advice and good wisdom about how to improve my painting, but it's nice to be home

  7. I had one favorite class - Blending by Ian Markon. No, wait, there were two favorite classes, blending and shiny paint by Lauren Cowles. What about aging and weathering? Oh, all right, I had three favorite classes, blending, shiny paint, and aging and weathering by David Cecil. That's all, just three favorite classes :)

     I was exposed to a huge amount of information in all my classes, and if I can remember ten percent of what I was exposed to I would have learned a lot here.

  8. My plan was to drive about 8 hours, get a good night's sleep, then go the rest of the way, about 4 hours. 8 turned into 9 1/2, but had a nice dinner and got some cool gifts for my family and now it's 3 a.m. and I am wide awake watching lightning and can't wait to finish the trip. Looking forward to meeting everyone

  10. QR number?! You mean the print-outs with the weird scan blocks isn't good enough? Good to know that now, since I am getting on the road in the morning. I have a huge stack of stuff I have printed, but not seeing anything with a QR number on it. Got to look again. Nice to know that people putting out information take it for granted that everyone watches Reaper live :(

    Just looked back through my emails. Is this QR number coming from growtix? Not seeing it anywhere. really not happy about this

    Just now you remind me that I won a copy of the old Battle Masters game I found in a thrift shop. The terrain is a huge easy to carry foldable vinyl map. It's simple and can be played in under an hour.


    I won't bring it this year, because all of the minis have a layer of gummy dust on them, and they could really use a fresh coat of paint instead of the basic bland early 90s tabletop level it currently has, and most of the stickers are half peeled off. There are dozens of miniatures, so it can be a long term project. Also unsure if I have all of the rules.


    What surprised me the most when I bought it, was these were true 25mm scale, noticeably smaller than the heroic 28mm scale we're used too these days.


    I... I think I own a copy of it. I bought it at bargain price because it was missing a piece or two, but otherwise, it had the character miniatures. Never thought of looking at who made them.


    I could bring it, but Monopoly can take a very long time to play, and it destroys friendships. :devil:

    I used to avoid the game because it takes so long, but there is a rule in there I had never noticed that speeds the game up somewhat. Every time a person lands on an unowned property and doesn't buy it, the bank has to auction it to the highest bidder. I have played for decades and never knew that but it makes a difference in how long a game can take
