  1. 2021 looks more likely. I am in a wait and see mode for 2020.
  2. Labor Day weekend is good timing for me. Looking forward to the event.
  3. Sounds like ReaperCon is fabulous, especially the people. I can hardly wait. Looks like it will be 2021 though. Is the event always on Labor Day Weekend?
  4. Noob question. How do the classes work? I found where to buy a VIP Admission on Growtix. However there is nothing about the schedule of classes or how to select individual classes. Can someone please clarify.
  5. I was looking at these but they seem somewhat expensive unless you can get multiple uses out of one. Has anyone actually got one and tried it? What was your opinion?
  6. Sirs: I have been requested by friends to attend a Panel Discussion at a local SciFi/Comic type event. The panel will be about miniatures and models. My chosen topic will be the wonderful "Bones" line of miniatures by Reaper. I in no way intend to represent Reaper or any implied affiliation. Is it possible for me to print or download any content from the forum or Reaper Web Site to show the audience the 9th Wonder of the miniature world? Is sharing the URL permitted?
  7. Suggestion: Go to Academy Outdoor store and shop the tackle boxes. There are many variations, your sure to find one suitable.
  8. Having experienced the excitement and joy during the first Bones kickstarter I was not that excited about this one.....Until the discussion about the two instructional DVD's came out. What are the exact details about getting the two painting DVD's?
  9. Been following this thread with a great deal of interest as I did not get in on the Kickstarter. I notice now they have these items up for sale on their web site. How do you guys rate these now that you have had a chance to use them? Do they work for bases? Which ones would you consider worthwhile to have? Which would you not have gotten?
  10. Run my disclaimer first. All your opinions are valid, respected, and appreciated. The discussion is fascinating, and the diversity of opinion is what makes our world go round. That being said: Let me play the advocate to the opposite perspective. The entire concept of delivery by drone seems fallacious to say the least. Consider that in our cities there are already air traffic corridors, power lines, buildings, numerous obstacles in the way. To overcome all these either with GPS or mapping, seems impractical to say the least. The cost to do all this seems much more expensive than delivering the package. How much quicker does the average person need a delivery than overnight? Is my gallon of milk so critical I am having it delivered by drone? Critical equipment always fails at the most inopportune time. Human error is introduced and multiplies, no matter how many safeguards are in place. Otherwise we would never have an airliner crash. What’s the outcome the first time one of these little drones’ crashes in the schoolyard or the hospital? No truly intelligent machines exist. Watson, which was the Jeopardy computer, simply had all the data programmed and had to select from existing variables. Fuzzy Logic, AI, still don’t do any truly creative thinking. They just give finer steps to the program. Programs can’t cover every situation or devise solutions to new, non-programed problems like the human mind can. No art has ever been created from scratch by the computer. Sophisticated equipment needs continual maintenance and upkeep. A robot, the power grid (which robots would depend on), even self-diagnosing machines that e-mail you with the error are very fallible. The error usually has multiple possible causes, guess who figures out what the real problem is. Human beings still have to make the judgment call and sort items out to keep all this equipment running. Look to the space program, submarine program, even with all that engineering and support we still had and have problems. A cyborg with a human brain might be more of a challenge, but would still have inherent weaknesses humans could figure out how to exploit. Machines need us far more than we need them. Nothing will stand in the way of the human race. Not the Black Plague, Bird Flu, radioactive waste, robots, Zombies ( humans would be rounding them up to us as circus acts before very long), Nuclear Armageddon, Aliens or anything else. That’s why there are seven billion of us now.
  11. I adore this manual you are working out of. Is there any chance to locate or purchase a copy?
  12. Yes. He just wasn't satisfied with the quality of storebought graham crackers. If he was going to go to the trouble of tempering chocolate and dipping them, he wanted them to be worth the trouble. I deny categorically that it was any part of any scheme on my part to get him eating more wholegrain flours. Wow.
  13. Interesting to see the input from everyone. Seems to show the traditional TV model is changing. Had satellite TV for about 6 years. Service was good, never had too many problems. Relocated the system once when I moved. Even with 250 channels there just did not seem to be much content. Channels I did enjoy seemed to repeat programing a lot. Got down to the point I was watching Honey Boo Boo! Coupon Queen. Pawn Scars. I knew what Chumley was gonna do before he did! Top Snot! Even the shows about building something, cars, aquariums, collections. They stopped being about the interesting details of the process. Only focused on the stress caused in meeting the deadlines, the gossip, backbiting, conflicts. How could any of these places really operate in this manner and stay in business? Or retain employees? Same thing every week. (Nothing wrong if you like these shows by the way, I just needed some kind of life besides this stuff). So when I got my house I just did not renew or move the satellite. Now I will pay for content, rent a movie, borrow DVD's, watch TV when at others homes. Much more infrequently. What I will not do again is engage anything that has a monthly subscription fee or a periodic fee of any kind. Period.
  14. I'm very slowly working on a digital inventory like that myself. My previous inventories were hand counting them and organizing them into semi arbitrary groups. Like I said before I really haven't had time for that in a while, and I think I have 2 unfinished inventory attempts since I moved out and haven't even tried since I bought my house. On the subject of wives/ spouses My wife has almost as many as me, and she definitely has more paint. She even has a roll top desk that she got specifically for painting minis. I 'm sure I've mentioned this before but our third date was painting minis at my apartment. To this day if we are painting minis it counts as a date if there is wine and chocolate covered grahmn crackers.My husband is not into painting minis but he supports and appreciates my hobby and makes use of the minis in his games. He makes chocolate-covered graham crackers. Totally from scratch, the graham crackers too. The graham crackers also?
  15. Engineer Jeff: Really appreciate the videos. Could you devote your talents to making a detailed video on how to remove the mold lines from the "Bones" figures. Other prep items would be of interest also.
  16. I am more of a lurker than a poster. Have been following this thread closely. You guys are getting me really pumped up!!!!! Ready to schedule vacation, reserve the hotel, select my courses and drive baby drive!!!!
  17. All this talk is getting me pumped up!!! I'm ready to schedule the vacation, reserve the hotel room, select my courses and drive baby drive!
  18. Your picture quality is awesome. Excellent Tutorial.
  19. Very interesting product. Can I use the product on injection molded styrene kits? (I usually prime them). I have several plastic "Mummy" kits that the Eqyptain Stone would be perfect for. I also have some Frankenstein kits that would be great with the "Aged Wood".
  20. Fellow Figure Lovers: For those of you who also do plastic models. Atlantis model company is having a kickstarter. The purpose is to produce 1/8 scale styrene injection molded Gladiators. These kits have not been produced for 40 years. For those lovers of the old style Aurora type kits help support this kickstarter.

  21. Kickstarter is like a loan. Crowdfunding specifically. There is probably some tax/business advantage to doing it this way, plus they get lots of free advertising by being on Kickstarter.
  22. Aren't the cases the same they show for sale in the online store? http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/case/sku-down/08705
