  1. I usually listen to music (classical, World - Loreena McKennitt, Medieval Baebes, etc.). I also really enjoy listening to the podcasts from BBC History Magazine: http://www.historyextra.com/podcast-page
  2. "Though she be but little, she is fierce!" - William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream. My youngest, Morgan, making her "fierce face"
  3. Thanks for the kind words, everyone! @Dodson - I'll try to get another shot next time I have everything set up, but I don't know if I can get in any tighter on the freehand. If you look too closely, you'll just see an assortment of different colored blobs with some green squigglies. I wanted to do a tiny floral print, but decided it would be safer to go with the illusion of a tiny floral print. The inspiration came from an events sheet that my husband created for our Pendragon game (below). I was looking at it, thinking, "I wish I could find a blouse with that floral pattern on it." Then I looked at the unpainted mini on the table and *ding ding ding* One of the things that's so much fun about Pendragon is that my husband (he sometimes lurks around here, known as Taliesin) really puts a lot of time into creating or finding really cool visuals. His background is in graphic design and he always comes to the table with maps, graphics, gorgeous character sheets, etc. He's currently doing quite a bit of editing work on the actual rule books with Pendragon creator, Greg Stafford. The character referenced in the sheet below, Bran ap Brychan, is my character. The character that the Lady in Waiting represents is my wife, Maela. This is the first time I've ever played a male character and, right off the bat, I get this poor handmaiden knocked-up. I did right by her, though, and we're now married with FIVE kids.

  4. Alas, didn't place (not surprised, as stated above). Go check out the winners!
  5. @TheBucklandBrewer - Thank you! Unfortunately, I can't get any other shots of her because I sold her at ReaperCon (which is not unfortunate). She lives with Ed Pugh now ! This is the pic they took at the Con and they were nice enough to send it to me. Kicking myself for not taking photos beforehand *KICK*KICK*KICK*
  6. Thanks, Inarah! Those are great!
  7. This is "Sophie's Garden", one of the pieces I entered at ReaperCon. Very pleased that she won a silver medal in the Open category. Pleased and quite surprised that she won a bronze Sophie Trophy in the Diorama category. She started out as the 2010 Convention Sophie. I removed some of her bling and added gloves and boots (Wellies). I sculpted the butterflies and watering can. All of the flowers are real, dried flowers that I collected from various places, including my herb garden (so she kind of smelled nice, too).
  8. These are a couple of Dark Sword minis from the George RR Martin line. First up is "Lannister Lady In Waiting", who obviously doesn't intend to wait long. I painted her for the GRRM competition on the WAMP forum. Lots of nice entries, so I won't be too surprised or disappointed if she doesn't place. The second piece is simply "Lady in Waiting". My husband and I have been playing Pendragon for about a year now and she represents one of the characters. I entered her in the WAMP competition, too, though she's certainly more "nice table-top" quality than competition piece.
  9. Do any of you want to share a link to your Pinterest Boards? I'll start (link below). I have boards for my minis, minis that inspire me (take a look - you might see one of yours!), fabrics & color schemes, armor & weaponry, favorite paintings/drawings...lots of stuff that may (or may not) be of interest http://pinterest.com/lwolter/
  10. Whoa...don't throw in the towel on the Open Category! I'm not a sculptor by any stretch of the imagination and the conversions I do have to be extremely simple for me to be able to make them work, but I still managed to win a silver medal in the Open Category and the very same mini won a bronze Sophie in the Diorama Category. Keep taking classes and work towards expanding your skill set. That's what I'm trying to do, and it's paying off (in smallish increments, anyway).
  11. Just wanted to join in with my "thanks" to the entire Reaper crew, the incredibly talented class instructors, the volunteers, and Sonic Mike. What a great weekend!
  12. It all looks great, but that tartan is especially nice!
  13. On the subject of BBQ, what is the best spot in Denton? I know you have a Rudy's, which is pretty darn good for a chain, but is there a favorite place amongst the locals?
  14. Kit told me that he hadn't had a chance to get to the preregistrations from last year. He advised me to go ahead and buy a ticket. If it turns out I did purchase a ticket last year (pretty sure I didn't), he said he would give me a refund ASAP.
  15. I took this class with Derek a couple of years ago and it's really, really good. I still refer back to my notes from this one. This year I'm taking Laszlo's Special Effects w/ NMM class on Saturday and One-On-One with Jen Haley Saturday afternoon.

    Day Passes

    Will day passes be available this year? If so, does anyone know how much they'll cost? Thanks!
  17. Please let us know how Reaper folk fared! Check in when you can, please!
  18. I've reached the "ugh" stage on my contest entry. Must persevere...
  19. Same here. I emailed Kit and he said he could get back to me in a few days.
  20. I think I have a few Mithrils. I'll dig through my "these are so old I will never paint them" cases and see what I can find.
