  1. People also seem to like to confuse "haven't gotten caught yet" with "it's legal" You can totally make one thing from scratch for yourself as a piece of fan art and be totally fine. If you start using it as part of your advertisements you are tempting the Gods. Start distributing files of, say, a crashed TIE, even for free, and you are tempting the Gods even more. Start selling the files and you are really asking for trouble. It's probably more the sheer volume of IP violations that ensure a few slip under the radar. You have to be careful with "inspired by" works too, if you are making something that can be recognized as being part of someone's IP you can totally get hit with the C&D hammer. This does vary by the desires of the IP holders too, some are more militant than others. But all IP holders have a motivation to enforce their claims on IP simply because not going after violators actually weakens their claim to their own IP
  2. 1e style? Going seriously old school! But I am loving the mohawk fin on the Black one, a bit of 70's punk to go with the 70's old school dragon aesthetic! I'm looking forwards to seeing the revised versions, I'm sure they will look great!
  3. I found that I didn't care for the semi-transparent green resin that came with my Photon S, it didn't seem to hold detail well and cleaning the supports was a bit tricky because they were stiff but brittle. I started using their environmental resin and I found that my prints were a bit sharper (but still room for improvement) and cleaning the supports off was much easier. The environmental stuff is much less smelly, and as we are still tinkering with the settings and getting a lot of failed prints I feel much less guilty about throwing away failed prints if they are biodegradable.
  4. That is one snazzy paint job! I'm glad you like him!
  5. Yes! Does it come with a Methodist Coloring Book? Do you encounter Beezelbubba? Is "Punk Rock Girl" a character class? Do Bards get a bonus to Perform checks if 'You'll Dance to Anything"? Enquiring minds want to know!
  6. These pictures are triggering a lot of nostalgia for toys from my youth....unfortunately they are also triggering a feeling that lawyers are going to get involved if they see this... But if they don't get a C&D letter I would love to see what people do with these models!
  7. Can confirm, there were sightings of a Pirate Sophie teaching an excellent shiny metallic paints class!
  8. Two thumbs up! One for the great paint job and a second one for the Monty Python reference!
  9. Besides what Talespinner already said you also have to remember that learning how to sculpt in this scale and making the model printable while keeping detail intact is another skill that you have to master in this industry. You can have some models that look gorgeous in the renders that don't work when printed out, let alone being molded and cast.
  10. Thanks for the nostalgic flashback! I actually had these models back in the day but I only have the Gollum now....maybe he ate the other Hobbitses?
  11. Maybe we can team up in 2021 for another presentation of this class?
  12. I suspect you are right. Besides the logistical nightmare involved with letting people "roll over" their current badge fees into new swag for the online con (which may be why Reaper is looking at just refunding everyone as step #1) you have to remember that physically attending the previous version of Reapercon 2020 was impossible for a LOT of people. Most people around the world just cannot plan a trip to Texas on Labor Day weekend, and that is a huge hurdle that affected this year's badge sales. Now that Reapercon is being relaunched and the playing field for attendance has been leveled it hardly seems right to penalize these people for not buying badges for the previous con. Just speculating on my end but I'm betting that Reaper will wipe the slate clean for previous registrations and just start over for the online con. Knowing Reaper it will still be pretty awesome.
  13. Oh I understand this completely. However I would point out that the only people guaranteed "full" VIP and regular swag bags were people who physically attended Reapercon. A few people may have been able to grab a bag online after the fact but they were usually complete- Reaper could usually cover their products in the online bags but that didn't always apply to the other vendors who donated to the swag bags. Putting this together was clearly a huge effort by everyone involved. Now imagine you have just added in thousands more customers all over the world who want full swag and VIP bags, people who otherwise probably wouldn't have gotten them because they weren't physically going to Reapercon. Sure a few may catch a bag online but this is still potentially a huge increase in number of swag and VIP bags needed, maybe double, triple, or quadruple what they would have otherwise need to put together. That's a lot of extra work, not just on Reaper's end but also on their partners who are also contributing swag if everyone ordering is going to get a "full" swag bag. Maybe the contents will be pared down to Reaper only items? Or maybe only a certain number of "full" regular and VIP bags will be made, and if demand exceeds supply then some people may miss out a bit? How would you determine who gets what, by lottery (shudder)? First come first served? Current badge holders first? I'm a bit curious how this will pan out, and I'm just speculating about what could happen. I'm sure Reaper will do the best that they can, they are cool like that and all.
