  1. wow. Thanks for sharing the pictures. I am so far behind on my painting cue that thinking about the next Bones worries me. Then I see the amazing sculpts and know I will be "all in" like all the other times. I miss going to Reapercon.
  2. Very neat project. I'm a little confused about the multiple mat dollar amounts. Is this for multiples of the same graphic or, if you buy multiples, can you pick different images as long as they are the same size?
  3. Awww. Rocket Grapple Arena was awesome. Thanks. I really like that game too. It is really popular when we bring it to other conventions because it is easy to learn and you can trash talk. :) Who know, I may just bring a thing or two for a pick up game. I guess it all depends if Dan is driving or not as I won't do the "flying with a gaming table" again.
  4. Still too early to figure out my flight as I'm not 100% if I will be able to go this year. I have a hotel room booked but I will have to travel solo. If I do go, I will do my normal Wednesday to Monday trip as I like the both the meet and great as well as a relaxing dinner on the Sunday. However, with Brad not going and not knowing Dan's schedule yet, it will be hard to organize any games. It was also really tough to get people to the sessions we ran last year. Decisions, decisions!
  5. I liked the different class formats last year. For sessions that were more designed to be a lecture, they were bigger and had A/V to help people see (it even worked most of the time). For the hands on classes, the size was pretty much the same as previous years. I had a mix of both last year and enjoyed them all. Gotta love artists sharing the love :)
  6. Love the mottled yellow on the underside of the wings.
  7. The triads are a great start for skin tones. Like the others have said, I tend to cover the skin area with the shadow colour and work my way up. The biggest trick for me was not to be afraid of the "ugly" stages. What I mean is when I add the next colour, I block it in without worrying about blending. then I make a think mix of the dark and light colour and smooth out the transition. It works for me. The other tip for doing skin that is not your typical colours is to add a skin tone colour to the mix. So, even if I am doing a red devil or a blue ice giant I mix in a flesh colour into the colours I'm using. It tends to give the skin a more "realistic" look. BTW, most of my skin success has to be given to Wren. She is an amazing painter and I learned a lot from her courses at ReaperCon. Kevin
  8. hmmm.... I guess it is time to start looking for flights. It looks like I might be the only one from my group attending this year. With all the other conventions we go to and the exchange rate, getting to ReaperCon is a bit pricey for the group. Everyone still loves Reapercon - just have to make the finances work.
  9. Yep, still waiting for the rest of my Dungeon Saga stuff. All they sent me was the basic game and none of the add ons. I'm a little concerned on their communication as well as their "oh well" attitude.
  10. I love the Walking Dead but, from my experiences with their other projects, I will not be backing this one. Their fulfillment system is too accident prone and, when mistakes happen, they aren't quick to either respond or resolve. At this point, I will just wait to see if it comes to stores if the product is any good.
  11. No, and makes me wonder what happened. I know I enjoyed talking with them at ReaperCon and after wards. Wow. That explains why communication went silent after ReaperCon. I was talking to them about helping with logistics and production for their Canadian supporters since I own a logistics company and have an 80 Watt CO2 laser. They were really gung ho at the start but everything died down very quickly - Even before we go to negotiating prices. Now I have to look into designing my own stands for my paint and brushes.
  12. I believe Reaper said something earlier about shuttle between the hotel and the convention centre (don't kill me if I'm wrong). If this isn't the case, organizing group transit is not a bad idea. We could also look into a cab rate from the hotel. Many have minivans and it may be even more economical than renting. Just brainstorming.
  13. Well done. You did a great job. One of my pet peeves with stonework is when people paint them all the same colour instead of shading individual stones to break it up. When you add some random coloured stones into the mix, it looks so much more realistic. I can't tell from the last photo - did your final steps hide the stonework you did with the different colours?
  14. Fantastic looking crew. They will look great on any gaming table.
  15. As someone not associated with the company, I agree with Devon on how only a few figures can be used for hours of gaming. The great thing about this game is that it is easy to create scenarios similar to the storylines from you favourite comics. Spider-man has fought Doctor Octopus dozens of times. The reason why they aren't boring is that the scenario/goal for the encounters change. I can't say enough good things about this game. It just makes me happy. Perhaps one of our games for next year's ReaperCon will have to be a Pulp City event. It would be easy to create a horror themed event with some of the factions available in the game.
  16. As long as you rememer to poke the foam, a pencil will work great. "Drawing" may cause tearing. To get longer lines, I use the bamboo sculpting tools you can find really cheap at most hobby stores. The different edges they offer make it go much faster. Your stonework looks fantastic!
  17. What games are you running Chris. We love the Hawks room. I've played a number of games in there. Mostly Doctor Who and other fantasy themed games. I hope you have a chance to play Frostgrave.
  18. For sure. That is always the challenge with historicals. How do you keep true to the uniform details while still expressing your want to be creative? I think you did a fine job. BTW, I always paint under any sort of sand/flocking I may be using for minis that will be used in games. Accidents will always happen. By painting the bases first, any areas that get damaged will still blend in (hopefully). Keep up the great work!
  19. Very nice work. I like the contrast of the aggressive poses of the miniatures with the pastoral scene you created with the base.
  20. YEAHHHHHHHHH MORE CANNUCK GAMES!!!!!!! YEAHHHHHHHHH MORE CANNUCK GAMES!!!!!!! Anything for you and your husband. You both are awesome! I will even make sure to have more candy :) I haven't even thought about games yet. With horror being one of my favourite genres, I am sure it will be spooky fun!
  21. Pulp city is fantastic. I was in at the collector level last time and got one of everything (I have a soft spot for superhero games). The models paint up nice and the game is a lot of fun. Though it doesn't use cards, I find it gives me the same great gaming experience as Malifaux. Your teams rely on synergy and your interaction with the terrain is very comic-like. Besides, after seeing the M.O.D.O.K. like Sputnik, I failed any chance of avoiding this KS.
  22. This KS got me too. However, I like the set I got the first go around and the price is pretty cheap (even after converting CDN money). I also like the flex of the molds.
