  1. 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?

    I wouldn't be the only tainted gnome in the south of France.... :)

  3. I just wanted to say a special thank you to everyone at Reaper who made this year so wonderful.  You all made this year great and every year it seems to get better.  you all ROCK!


    Also to thanks to all the volunteers for helping out so that the rest of us could have a good time.  I was going to volunteer but then I realised I was just a self-centered SOB. you all ROCK!


    And thanks to all the vendors who provided help and support was will as an outlet for my cash.  You also ROCK!


    Lastly to everyone else at Reapercon 2017.  You (we?) all ROCK!

  4. No one has mentioned my favorite black - Deadly Nightshade, but it is really a purplish black.  ItIt has already been said but if you are looking for an untinted black then I would go with Pure Black or Solid Black.  Dragon black works also but I have had very little experience with it and it is designed for reaper bones.

    Oh and lastly, you are not wasting anyone's time here.  We all love this hobby and are glad to answer any questions you have.  This is Reaper Peeps are the best!

  5. I have done a horrible job of promoting it this year but I plan to attempt it again.  Anyone interested?


    What: World Wide Miniatures Day 2017

    When:  July 22nd (ish) – I say (ish) cuz it’s flexible.  If you can’t do it this day, do the next day, or the day after.  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 the wonder 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 game, 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.

    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.

    Complete any of the above challenges and pm me your address and I will send you a ribbon.  How cool is that?

  6. I didn't see anyone mention these for mixing so I though I would add to to the fun.  I use the plastic food cups from Smart and Final.  They come in long sleeves of 100 for about $2.  You can just mix the paint and toss them when you are finished.  You can also recycle them if you like.

  7. I am working on this for reapercon and I am looking for some suggestions to make the symbols pop.



    Here is a closer look at them.




    Any suggestions for this or other things you don't like about the paint job would be greatly appreciated. The plan is to have to add a cape with some freehand incorporating the symbols and a skull to keep the theme going.

  8. Nice pictures everyone.  Man I have to admit that I do not recover from these things a fast as I used to.  On the plus side the event keeps getting bigger every year which is AWESOME!  Do not forget to PM your mailing address if you participated or if you are planning doing your run later in the month.  Oh yeah, here are my pictures of the models I worked on during the event:

    Thanks to everyone who helped make this event a success.
