  1. Hey, folks! The NOVA Open Charitable Foundation raffle is live and there are some beautiful miniatures available! From 2013-2019, NOVA has raised over $300,000, primarily for Doctors Without Borders, Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and Fisher House. 
    My 2019 ReaperCon Sophie is up for grabs. Proceeds from Sophie will benefit Fisher House.

  2. Hey, all! Just wanted to share the ReaperCon 2019 Sophie I'm working on for the NOCF Charity Raffle. The NOVA Open Charitable Foundation (NOCF) began in 2013. To date, over $130,000 has been donated to various charities, primarily Doctors Without Borders, Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and Fisher House. This miniature is the 2019 ReaperCon Sophie, and proceeds from her raffle will benefit Fisher House. I'll let you know when the raffles are live! I still have quite a bit of work to do, but I'm fairly happy with how she's coming along. 

     

    I also have a FaceBook page now for my minis. Please check out https://www.facebook.com/UrsaMinis. Thanks!

  3. Hey, all! I'm finally getting around to sharing photos of my miniatures via social media. You can find me at Ursa Minis on FaceBook. There's not a lot going on there just yet, but I hope to have more pics up soon. I hope you're all safe and well, and I do hope to see many of you at ReaperCon! 

     

    Thanks in advance for checking out Ursa Minis, and please 'like' and share if you're so inclined.

    Pushing Past Problems, Tish Wolter, Friday @ 10am -- Billed as a chance to work through problems that you're already having on an in-progress miniature, it pretty much followed that brief. Tish did help me figure out a thing that had been plaguing me. And she is not just a brilliant painter but a stellar person, so it was enjoyable. Somewhat general handout, but I'm not sure how to make it more specific, given the advertised nature of the class. On an information for time and money basis, I don't know whether I would recommend this class. It felt kind of like what happens at a good paint club meeting, and I have access to a really good paint club. If you don't have regular access to direct suggestions from very strong painters, I suspect the perceived value would be higher. But it was a nice, relaxing couple of hours (which I wanted at the time) and I did learn things, so I feel like I got my value for money.

     

    Thanks so much for reviewing my class! This was a new one for me, and I honestly didn't have a clue how it would go. I think your comparison to a paint club is spot-on. I do think there are tweaks I can make to this one should I run it again, and your feedback is certainly appreciated (and thank you for the photography tips, too ).

  5. Hey, all! Tish Wolter here. Every year after ReaperCon I vow to be more active on the Reaper Boards, and every year I fail miserably. Anyway, if anyone has any questions about the classes I'm teaching, please don't hesitate to contact me. And please come by and introduce yourselves at the Con so I can connect faces to forumite names :)

    Your 3 and 8 year olds are welcome at the show and will not be charged any admission, provided proper supervision. Many attendees have precious and important models, lamps, tools, and personal items visible on their work areas, and we want no incidents involving tiny hands and damages or thefts (even the accidental "I picked it up because it was pretty" kind).

     

    Can kiddos without badges (10 and under ) enter something in the painting competition? Both of my girls want to enter something, but will not be participating in any other Con events. 


  7. May as well find the proper thread to ask this question.

     

    So I am looking to find a Friday class and thinking of only doing 1.  No sculpting desire at this time so I see a couple at the 4-6 time slot.  I took John's "How Not To Suck" last year but thought it could be a good refresher and he was awesome to watch.  The other option is the "Miniatures Prep & Assembly" which I am guessing may be a better choice since I have no clue what I am doing when clearing flash and mold lines.  I just go at it until I feel like it is right.

     

    The more I talk about it and write it out I should do the class I have not taken before.  Now that I look at the schedule I see one spot open for Bryan's "Convert and Take" class.  Not sure I have much interest in conversions at this time but after the class that could possibly change.  Any input is welcome before I commit to another 2 classes in a day. :)

    Hey there! I'm teaching the Prep & Assembly class. I'll be covering basic filing, pinning, filling in gaps, etc. We'll also talk about working with Green Stuff & Milliput. Hope this helps in your decision making  ::):

  8. "So if you have spent as much time on the base as the miniature and want it considered as part of your score then this is the category for you."

     

    Something I've never been quite sure about...can a single stock model (no conversions) with a more elaborate base go in the Open Category, or should it go in the Painter Category? My apologies if this has already been answered and I just didn't see it.

  9. So, OF COURSE yesterday was the one day in like months that I actually had things going on ALL DAY. So it wasn't until around 11:30pm that I was able to sign up for classes. I got a pretty good schedule, though I had to go with a few second choices. I didn't get the ONE class I really wanted, though.  :down: :down: :down: But at least I was able to snag a Freehand class, which was the one I second most really wanted. :D

     

    EDIT: Schedule:

     

    Thursday

    Noon-2pm Shaded Metallics with Michael Proctor

    2-4pm Painting Black and White with Noel Meyer

     

    Friday

    Noon-2pm Reaper Bones Convert 'n' Take with Bryan Stilz (looking forward to this; from pictures of past years, I expect to see some awesomely bizarre miniature combinations)

    4-6pm Level Up Your Painting with Rhonda Bender

     

    Saturday

    no classes yet, though I will be checking each day to see if a Good Fast Painting slot opens up. ...I'm not holding my breath. :down:

     

    Sunday

    10am-Noon Painting freehand designs with Brice Coconeur 

     

    I got my four. Mad that all of corporeas classes sold out ASAP. >_> but I got everything I wanted. :D

     

    I has a sad. :down: I was looking forward to her Flesh and Faces class!!!

     

    Got some classes! woohoo!

     

    8 classes?! :blink: I don't think you're going to be conscious by the end of Thursday.  :mellow:

     

    Hey, there! I wanted to toss in some info about my classes (I'm Tish Wolter, btw). Both Mini-Prep and Good Fast Painting are demo/Q&A, but please feel free to bring anything you're working on. I won't be covering Bones in the mini-prep class, as there are other classes devoted solely to Bones. My other class is Miniature Painting for Kids (aged 8+). They can bring their own mini or choose from some that will be provided. This is going to be fun! 

     

    I'm looking forward to seeing everyone!

     

    Your Fast Painting class was the one I most wanted to take!!! Will you be available at times other than class?

     

    Huzzah!

    --OneBoot :D

    I'll be arriving at RCon early Friday afternoon. I plan on being in the artist area any time I'm not scheduled for a class  ::):
