  1. (Now a 2022 WIP) Yes, a 2020 ReaperCon WIP! And a massive undertaking at that. I'm trying very hard not to nerd out and put this whole project into, er, Project. There's just so many pieces to keep track of, that maybe I'll just use this first post to keep track of things. Some background stuff, starting with a quote from the "Paint a giant robot! Group WIP" where I wrote some of what's planned: You can read the rest of that post here: Paint a giant robot post and a second one to see where I'm going with this: PLA print post in same topic Biggest takeaway is that, while useful, my PLA printer can only do so much. I have a resin printer backed on Kickstarter, but considering it's now 3 years late, I don't think I should hold my breath on it ever showing up. Especially when I can get a new Elegoo Mars resin printer with more capability for relatively cheap (<$300). The PLA machine was bought with both hobby and household goals in mind, and it's served well. But the resolution just ain't there! More on that down the posts. I also had the chance to gain some experience on paper plants at ReaperCon (Main post for that in the Terrain section post here: Vellum Paper Plants - Alien Jungle (WIP) Basically, I have the scrap booking machine to make my own alien plants: Which now leads me to this WIP. This is going to tie all those pieces together. The robot WIP will still be to get a good camo scheme, but that print job is not going to be used for the final diorama. Instead, that will be the resin printer's job. So, let's break down the WIP work that I can see so far, and will be edited later to add things and mark completions. Tasks to be completed: Figures Needed Wight (being pulled down backwards, caught by hidden lines) Gremlin Unit 01 (stole a supply crate and ran; actually just bait to get the larger CAV to follow) Gremlin Units 02 and 03 (trip line pair, successfully snagging Wight across the chest) Gremlin Units 04 and 05 (trip line pair, successful across another part of the chest) 2/27/22: Too busy; cut Gremlin Unit 06 (burner unit, cut Wight's left gun in two) Gremlin Units 07 and 08 (trap door unit, hiding entrance to jungle path with camo doors strapped to them) Gremlin Units 09 and 10 (trip line pair, successful across right thigh) 2/27/22: Too busy; cut Gremlin Units 11 and 12 (trip line pair, broken cable across chest, possibly falling over from sudden jolt) 2/27/22: Too busy; cut Gremlin Unit 13 (ECM unit, some large radar dish looking thing) EDIT: Maybe use older model (2018 or 19 ReaperCon entry) Gremlin Units 14, 15 and 16 (cargo units, loaded up with stolen supplies and headed out) 2/27/22: Too busy; cut Gremlin Units 17, 18, 19, and 20 (gun units) 2/27/22: Too busy; cut Gremlin Units 21, 22, and 23 (missile units) 2/27/22: Too busy; cut Gremlin Unit 24 (large gun unit) 2/27/22: Too busy; cut Gremlin Unit 25 and 26 (junked units; scavenged for parts?) 2/27/22: Not going to be a permanent camp, so no junkyard Gremlin Unit 27 (2nd style missile unit) 2/27/22: Too busy; cut Gremlin Unit 28 (personnel carrier unit) 2/27/22: Too busy; cut Wight Conversion Right Leg: cut from pelvis; reposition Feet: cut off both feet and swap positions since the tread is only on one foot Base: cut away from right foot, possibly keeping full base around left foot Left arm (maybe): cut gun into two pieces, having one falling to the ground after being cut by a heat lance/chainsaw rope Details to be included Camo doors at front leaving marks on the dirt path, but hiding the ambush from the main trail Pieces of old broken larger CAV units around 2/27/22: No longer a permanent encampment Wight gun cut in two, maybe showing inner details. May have to 3D print an add-on piece Dust being kicked up by the stolen crate (going to try using dyed cotton) IN WORK One cable snapping dynamically, with several bends and twists (superglue on thread?) Multiple vehicle tracks around camp Campfire and tents for people A latrine Other camp details (laundry, chairs, sports equipment, bored carvings, etc) Jungle Plants (V=Vellum cuts, B=bought, S=Sculpted, F=Found, P=Printed) Large lotus flower like plants, but dry land and maybe odd colors with a large conifer cone growing from the middle (V) Jester hat plant (balls on stems around a central point) (V) COMPLETED Spiky yucca like plant (V) Jagged leaf plant (V) Tentacle plant (V) Tripod trees (three spoke trunks) (V) Large palm fronds (S) Coral like trees (P) Horn tree (lots of horn shaped leaves from a central trunk) (P, V) Ball vine (like ivy but with odd leaf shapes) (V) Cabbage-like jungle plants with large wrinkled leaves (V) Fuzzy vines (thin wire coated with static grass) (S) Anything I can buy from N/HO scale train setups and painted alien-ish (B) Reaper figures that can be clipped and painted to be plants (B) Odd trees with strange leaf shapes (onion shaped) (V) IN WORK Random grass-like jungle plants (V) IN WORK Stem ends from mandarin oranges (seriously, pull one off and look at it, stem towards the ground) (F) Anything and everything else (VBSFP) Base mounting system Design and print modular tiles with bristles on top (basically, Bristle Block toys) Allows mounting of all the above jungle plants Fill in around plants with thinned plaster via a syringe to create the ground surfaces
  2. Here is a preview of the rest of the elves I had primed in Feburary and have recently finished this month thus March-ing elves hehe. will probably post the individuals tomorrow I just took a quick group shot.
  3. I was considering running a game at Reapercon this year (assuming it happens). Is there interest in Stargrave as a convention event? Are other people planning on running the game at the convention? buckyball
  4. We are very excited to be able to come back and participate at ReaperCon again this year! There are a ton of new releases that will be in-stock at the show and a couple of other special items. Bombshell Miniatures presents the 2021 Golden Maelee Award. This is a Sponsored Award section of the annual Reaper Master Series Open Painting Contest. All entries will be awarded a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Bombshell Dog Tag depending on the level of painting and presentation of each entry. The brand new, larger, Golden Maelee trophies will be awarded to the top three paint jobs (Gold, Silver, and Bronze) depending on the number of entries. Entries will need to feature at least one or more Bombshell Miniatures as the prominent subject. This can be anything from Babes, Sidekicks, KritterKins, to robots, or busts. Each entry will be judged on its own merit of painting execution, presentation, and skill. Entries from artists who have been professionally commissioned by Bombshell Miniatures are ineligible for the Golden Maelee Trophy at this time, they may still receive Dog Tag awards. BADGE RIBBONS We have some new ribbons. Come by our booth and receive our Bombshell ribbon for your visit. You may receive one of the other themed ribbons depending on your purchase. THE RESIN VAT This year we will be offering seconds and mis-cast resin parts for sale by weight. Just scoop out what you want and we'll weigh it at check-out. Although these castings didn't pass muster, you may find a gem that is just right for that conversion or terrain project down the line. COUNTERBLAST FOR SAVAGE WORLDS Over the past year we have been working on creating a setting book of our Counterblast game for the Savage Worlds RPG. Come by our booth and get the details to sit in on a couple of impromptu RPG preview sessions during the con. There may even be freebies involved! We are super excited to visit with all of you again and we're looking forward to see what you've been painting! Patrick & Vicky
  5. Hey its buc. I have run games of Rangers of Shadowdeep at Reapercon and the Reaper online conventions. Is there enough interest for me to run Rangers of Shadowdeep at Reapercon in person this year? Would it be better to put my effort into Stargrave and or Frostgrave? buckyball
  6. If you are still waiting on your exchange mini, look at your own risk..sadly my photo skills are lacking in catching all the contrast he has..
  7. This one was for a facebook competition about color. The rules were, basically, don't worry about anything else but color. Do something different with color. I started with the idea of a dress palette of blue, teal, purple, and magenta. Once I had those colors in place, it was a matter of incorporating them in different areas of the model. I went with cotton candy roses and a galaxy print on the wings. The galaxy was a matter of stippling the dress colors (plus a bit of white) back and forth until the effect was convincing. Then I masked the body of the model and flicked a stiff brush at the wings to make star patterns. I then went back to the dress colors and stippling to blend them in a bit. This was a blast to paint, because I've never really done anything like this before.
  8. So Reapercon 2019 was great as far as my classes went. I taught 6 courses, all were sold out, most were 2 people beyond capacity (which was fine because I was ready for that possibility) But I feel like 6 was just 1 too many to organize, prep, practice and deliver. All of my classes seemed to be very much enjoyed by those who attended and I got some awesome feedback from some folks. so.. which one to not do... that's a hard question as I enjoyed all of them. first, the must keeps. Water Effects. that class probably could have sold out 2 or 3 times. so many want to take that so its in. Realistic Gore. Overwhelming high praise from a lot of folks, so thats in. plus its it's ridiculously fun for me. Weathering and aging. This is an easy one for me to teach, always sells out and gets great reviews. Kind of have to keep due to demand. Up for debate. Dragons. I have taught multiple variants of this class. Its not bad, and folks seem to like it but Im not sure if the demand is still high. Tabletop painting. Sells out but slowly. Its one of my strengths though. fast painting at a high tabletop level. Kids classes. I do these mainly to ensure that the kids programming continues to grow. The little artists amaze me every time. Its a lot of fun and full of surprises by talented young artists. may need to keep on principle. other subjects I have taught but not sure if folks still would be interested. woodland bases, lava bases, ice and snow bases. batch painting. Blending toolbox. (kind of a whole host of various techniques to blend) obviously, Reaper would need to approve any of these, just thinking ahead so that my submission requests will be ready when its time. Id love your thoughts
  9. I just got done painting this amazing figure!
  10. To help alleviate the last minute rush order or trying to have them shipped to the hotel, I'm reminding people that personalized badge ribbons are a thing. Because of forum rules we can't post a link to where to order them but if you post here, a certain @ub3r_n3rd fairy may PM you details. The standard size that Reaper makes their ribbons is: Personalized Badge Ribbon 1-5/8"H x 3-1/2"W FAQ What are the ribbons for?! Reaper gives out ribbons for various tasks like joining a faction, taking a class, spending a LOT of money in the Reaper Booth. Some are known, some are secret. Individuals also have their own ribbons made and have their own criteria for earning them. In the past there has been a prize for longest chain (without duplicates) but this is subject to the whims of Reaper. Can I make my own ribbons? Absolutely. Anyone can have their own ribbon. Come up with fun (family appropriate) phrase and a task that you will have the receiver perform (again, family appropriate) then contact a ribbon company to have them printed. How many ribbons should I bring? If this is your first time giving out ribbons, 100 should be plenty. If you are teaching a class, running a game or a vendor, you probably want more as you will be interacting with more people. Is there a list of all the Ribbons and how to get them? Short answer, No. Part of the fun is talking to people to learn how they got a particular ribbon. When the con starts, I'll probably update this post with a list of known ribbons. like the ones Reaper gives out or ones individuals want to share. (Please don't share the how to unless you have the OK from the creator) Not even one spoiler? Ok, if you want to get the "Ludo, Friend" ribbon, you have to bring Ludo a small rock. (Rocks from the hotel decor will not be accepted.) Bonus points will be awarded on how fancy the rock is.
  11. REMINDER: THIS IS TODAY AT 6:30 PM Date: Sunday, Sep 1st Time: 6:30 PM Location: Houlihans (on-site restaurant connected to the hotel) Dinner menu: https://www.houlihans.com/eats-and-drinks/menu/dinner/denton Gluten-sensitive options (not guaranteed gluten-free): https://www.houlihans.com/eats-and-drinks/menu/gluten-free/denton Vegetarian options: https://www.houlihans.com/eats-and-drinks/menu/vegetarian/denton Seating is INDOORS. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It occurred to me out of the blue today that I've completely forgotten to call Houlihans (the on-site hotel restaurant) to see if seating for 30-40 people could be reserved on Sunday. I did this last year, and from all reports this arrangement was well-received and convenient for everyone. If there are no strong objections, I plan to call tomorrow (Monday) to see if such can be arranged again. I just hope it's still possible, it's getting a bit close... Last year I made the reservation for 6:30pm. For those that went last year, was 6:30pm a good time, or would earlier have been better? My thinking last year was that it would give some time after the auction for people to do some packing first (also gives a buffer in case the auction runs super long). Looking forward to seeing y'all SOON! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  12. Let's get this party started! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  13. Hey guys! I haven't stopped moving since Reapercon. This was my Paint It Pink entry, "Screening Ain't Sexy". Hope y'all like it. I enjoy things that are ridiculous, and applying fake eyelashes to a miniature monster paint pot fit the bill for me. :D C&C is always welcome!
  14. Howdy, ReaperCon Hobby Hijinks Paint by Die Roll, paint for an hour with colors chosen randomly for hair, skin, leather, metal, weapon, accents. Kev! P.S. Click thru for light box pics
  15. Neat sculpts, the next KS is going to be fun I wish Reaper's breakdown of judging criteria actually reflected how high bases score. Looking at their little percentage breakdown, you would never know that the base was so important .

    Names and Faces

    While @Pegazus's Forumite bingo helps, I am TERRIBLE about remembering names. I will totally remember your face and what we did three years ago but for the life of me I can't even remember the first letter of your name. I figured I'd make a cheat sheet where people could share a photo and name so people can have a refresher before the con. Prefered name: Ludo Pronoun of Choice: He, It, Dude Huggability: Absolutely
  17. Howdy, Can't seem to glaze for the life of me, Kev! P.S. Click thru for light box pics
  18. Howdy, ReaperCon Lickety Split painting by Tish Wolter, use the model to quickly get a table ready paint job. Kinda Ghoulish, Kev! P.S. Click thru for light box pics
  19. Howdy, I entered this on a lark to get the MSP, Fanatic, and Edmazing ribbons for my ReaperCon badge. To my surprise, I got a bronze medal in the painters category. You must enter to win, Kev! P.S. Click thru for light box pics
  20. Howdy, ReaperCon Hobby Hijinks Sophie Says, paint for an hour while being distracted. It ain't easy, Kev! P.S. Click thru for light box pics
  21. My second ReaperCon diorama started as an idea of having Jason Wiebe's Tiger Lily Mage holding a stop sign. When I started looking through the rest of the Dark Sword Miniatures Critter Kingdoms line, I quickly realized that there was potential to build a multitude of scenes. I planned out a simple story: Tiger Lily stops traffic, which would be another animal of some kind, and another animal crosses the street. The Squirrel on a Turtle was perfectly awesome for the traffic, and the Pretty Princess cat noble was great for the pedestrian. I also had a bunch of resin groceries and dressing that I wanted to use, and the Hedgehog Bard made for a great half-oblivious grocer. Oh, and the streets on the sign are named after Mr. Wiebe's other dogs. This diorama won 2nd Place overall Critter Kingdom Anthropomorphic Animals award, which came with a pretty great store credit prize at Dark Sword. I was honestly so blown away that it was chosen, I barely remember walking up to accept the award, lol.
  22. I sort of fell off the WIP thread because life made this take longer than I had originally intended. The minis are by Bombshell, and I have to say that they were a pleasure to paint. I will be picking up a few more at ReaperCon, for sure. The scenery is by Secret Weapon, Shadow's Edge, and Woodland Scenics. The base is from a cheap 3 pack from Michael's. All paint is from Reaper. I'll probably end up staining or painting the base, but I haven't yet decided which way to go with it. It feels really good to finish something for the MSPOpen. In hindsight, I probably should've started with something smaller, and worked my way up to this, but meh. I'm pretty proud of this.
  23. Now that I'm back from Reapercon, I think it is time to post pictures of my entries. This is Monique Denoir, and she was awarded a bronze Sophie in the painters category. I was pleased with the paintjob on her, and I'm happy that she could compete with the many very well painted Reaper miniatures in the competition (every year there are quite a few fantastic entries- this year was no exception).
  24. I wanted to create something to enter in the Paint It Pink competition this year, but I only had about a day and a half before ReaperCon. I knew that this wasn't going to win any awards, but it was important to me that I do something. I saw these goblins with their oversized flag and just went for it. The base is one of Secret Weapon's doric columns.
  25. *Ludo shuffles in followed by a trail of small rocks* FORUMITES FRIENDS UPDATED 8/17/19 So I will be running the Hobby Hijinx corner at ReaperCon again this year. If you are not familiar with the corner, it is where Reaper offers free 1-2 hour paint and take events. We have the classic Paint 'N Take area as always, as well as the Sophie Says, traditional Speedpaints and the new Paint by Die Roll and Bones Mashup. I will be updating this post as details are firmed up. If anyone has any ideas for the current events or new events, please post them here. If you would like to volunteer to help in the Hobby Hijinx corner, please send me a PM with the days and times you would like to help and if you would like to be a helper or coordinator. Coordinators will be responsible for running individual events (all the supplies will be there) Helpers will assist coordinators. I will be the default coordinator for any event that doesn't have a volunteer CURRENT SCHEDULE Thurdsay: 10:15am - 11:45am Paint by Die Roll 12:00pm - 1:00pm Closed for Lunch 1:15pm - 2:00pm Speed Paint 2:15pm - 2:45pm Quick Conversion 3:15pm - 4:00pm Ed Sculpts are the Best Sculpts 4:15pm - 5:00pm Sophie Says 5:15pm - 6:00pm Speed Paint 6:00pm - 7:15pm Closed for Dinner 7:15pm - 8:45pm Paint by Die Roll 9:00pm - 10:00pm Sophie Says After Dark Friday 10:15am - 11:00am Ed Sculpts are the Best Sculpts 11:15am - 12:00pm Speed Paint 12:00pm - 1:00pm Closed for Lunch 1:15pm - 2:00pm Sophie Says 2:15pm - 2:45pm Speed Paint 3:15pm - 4:45pm Paint by Die Roll 5:15pm - 6:00pm Quick Conversion 6:00pm - 7:15pm Closed for Dinner 7:15pm - 8:00pm Sophie Says 8:15pm - 9:00pm Speed Paint 9:15pm - 10:15pm Sophie Says After Dark Saturday 10:15am - 11:00am Quick Conversion 11:15am - 12:00pm Sophie Says 12:00pm - 1:00pm Closed for Lunch 1:15pm - 2:45pm Paint by Die Roll 3:15pm - 4:00pm Speed Paint 4:15pm - 5:00pm Sophie Says 5:15pm - 6:00pm Speed Paint 6:00pm - 7:15pm Closed for Dinner 7:15pm - 8:00pm Ed Sculpts are the Best Sculpts 8:15pm - 9:00pm Awards Ceremony 5 minutes after Awards Ceremony - 10:15pm Sophie Says After Dark Sunday 10:00am - 11:30am Paint By Die Roll 11:30am - 12:00pm Conversion and Speed Paint Sophie Says A fun cross of Simon Says and Speed Painting. Don’t let the time element scare you, this is about being silly and having fun while painting a mini. All supplies and the mini will be provided. Once the timer starts, participants will have 45 minutes to paint the mini to the best of their abilities. Sophie, (or one of her minions) will intermittently apply challenges to the painters, such as painting while standing on one leg, painting polka dots somewhere on the mini, etc. Sophie understands that not everyone will be able to perform all of the challenges and encourages participants to participate as much as they feel comfortable. Every participant will receive a certificate declaring how awesome and silly they are. This is a kid friendly activity, but we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult. Sophie Says After Dark This is slightly more adult themed version of Sophie Says, a fun cross of Simon Says and Speed Painting. Don’t let the time element scare you, this is about being silly and having fun while painting a mini. All supplies and the mini will be provided. Once the timer starts, participants will have 45 minutes to paint the mini to the best of their abilities. Sophie, (or one of her minions) will intermittently apply challenges to the painters, such as painting while standing on one leg, painting polka dots somewhere on the mini, etc. Sophie understands that not everyone will be able to perform all of the challenges and encourages participants to participate as much as they feel comfortable. THIS IS A PG-13 VERSION. ADULT BEVERAGES WILL BE ALLOWED AT THE TABLES AND THINGS WILL BE MAY BE MORE AWKWARD. Speed Paint All supplies and the mini will be provided. Participants are allowed to bring their own brush if they wish. Once the timer starts, participants will have 45 minutes to paint the mini to the best of their abilities. Once the time is up all painting must cease. All entries will be judged by specially selected stunt judge. Prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. All participants will receive a certificate to attest to grit and determination. This is a kid friendly activity, but we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult. Paint by Die Roll This is a group skill building event rather than a competition. Step outside your comfort zone and paint with color combinations. All supplies and the mini will be provided. Participants are allowed to bring their own brush and/or palate if they wish. All participants will receive the same mini, the group will then roll a d20 to determine which portions of the mini will be what color. Example: Last year there an ogre chieftain with Palomino gold skin, purple cloth, mint green metal, and pale lichen leather. Black, White, and Brown will be provided for shading and highlighting purposes only. Everyone will receive a certificate attesting to their willingness to try new things. This is a kid friendly activity, but we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult. Quick Conversion Let your creativity flow as you cut, glue, and pin your own unique mini. Use a collection of Reaper minis and pieces to create something new. Will you come up with a goblin headed rogue, or a beholder mermaid? It’s up to you. This activity will involve cutting implements and super clue so we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult. Ed Sculpts are Best Sculpts When Reaper was a young company and sculptors could get first hand references for their dinosaur sculpts, now president of Reaper Miniatures, Ed Pugh, contributed to the product line by sculpting many of the skeletons. Come raise the dead and socialize with your fellow necroma.....painters. This is a kid friendly activity, but we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult.
