    Unofficial forumite dinner on Sunday

    I'm very excited to be attending this year! Wahoo!
  2. I hope everyone had a great time this year (or will have a great time this year if you haven't one your challenge yet) Don't forget to PM me your address so I can send you your goodies. Let me know which challenge you did and if you added the special charity challenge* this year. I will be at reapercon this year so I can deliver them to you if you would rather do that. I did video on my facebook page which you check out here if your are interested. * special charity challenge this year.
  3. @Inarah Awesome! I created an event for the hobby hangout if anyone would like to sign up on facebook. Feel free to share this with your friends. https://www.facebook.com/events/1312937722172254/
  4. 12 more days... I've got my binge TV all queued up and my fridge stocked. Anyone else planning to go the whole way?
  5. What: World Wide Miniatures Day 2018 (the wooden anniversary) When: July 14nd (ish) – I say (ish) cuz it’s flexible. If you can’t do it this day, do the next day, or the day after or the day before or the week before. This event is designed to be fun and inclusive to everyone as much as possible. Where: Your place, your friendly local game store, your paint club, or where-ever you like. What: This is the fun part. WWMD is a celebration of this hobby we love while enjoying sharing our obsessions with others who can truly understand. Also to bring in new people to this wonderful and engrossing pastime. How: We celebrate it by doing anything related to the hobby. Anything! Some activities include: Painting, cleaning, prepping, priming, purchasing, trading, reading about, watching videos, organizing, talking about, driving to and from your FLGS, teaching classes, researching, playing games with miniatures, planning miniature games, building a gaming table, paint rack, display case, basing miniatures, collecting basing materials, writing posts or articles, photographing miniatures, constructing sentences with the word miniature in them. Really ANYTHING that can be connected back to this hobby. Did I say anything? Cost: Just your sanity Motto: No rules. No Prizes. No regrets. Why: Really? You have read this far and you are asking why? The simple answer is – because we can and we should. Why not? Special Challenges Marathon Challenge: Can you do something miniatures related for 24 hours taking breaks only to eat and go to the bathroom? This challenge is for you. It is based on the honor system but it would be really cool to post pictures of your work in progress. Half Marathon Challenge: Same as the marathon only its 12 hours. 5K Challenge: 5 hours – you get the idea. Charity Challenge: I wanted to make year 5 something special in the record books while keeping it as inclusive as possible. “But Jeff how will you do that?” you may ask. One word – Charity. All you have to do is donate any of your work from this day to charity (you pick which one) and you complete the challenge. You define which charity you want to donate to. Remember it’s the honor system and I’m not going to check up on you. Just member you have to live with yourself. You can build terrain and donate it to your war game club or paint miniatures, sell them on ebay and donate the proceeds to Habitat for Humanity. Combine this challenge with any of the others and get a special reward. Complete any of the above challenges and pm me your address and I will send you a ribbon. How cool is that? I’m hoping cool enough to solve the all world’s problems… but I am helplessly optimistic.

    Why Does SuperGlue Hate Me?

    Old glue was my first guess too -- are you sure it wasn't sitting on the shelf for a long time before you bought it? I've gotten old glue that way once....

    You know what would be cool? I do...

    They could be just as close as they could get -- sort of a 2017 version of the old series. The "Hunt" would still be preserved because they are not the "real" thing, just a replica. Like a copy of a rare coin or something. It may not be very practical but its an idea worth talking about. :)

    MSP Must Haves

    My answer is simple.... All of them. :)
  10. I talked about this at reapercon but I didn't really do anything with the idea..... Until now..... Wouldn't it be cool if Reaper released a special "All the colors of ReaperCon" paint set which would include..... wait for it.... All the specialized colors from ReaperCons of the past! I KNOW that I would pick one up and I bet others would too. I would make a great gift.... wouldn't that be cool? What do you think?
