  1. I'm writing/adapting a raygun skirmish game with the intent to host it at Reapercon 2015. Here's the intro: If you are interested in playtesting it, you can find the document folder at https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B6HUGmJgXqKHS1RIU0hZMHdJWE0 I would love to have your actual results-of-play feedback on this, posted here or sent to me privately. I want this to be as good as it can be by the time the con rolls around. Feel free to stat up any appropriate Reaper figures and post the stats here - I hope to compose a roster as well. Make up new skills, new weapons, whatever you want. I do reserve final editorial authority - should be obvious and I'll not be a jerk about it, but I do have to say it. Thanks in advance! ETA 6/19/16: Changed the game name to "Atomic Hero".
  2. Since all I will be doing is coming out tomorrow to enjoy the auction and say goodbye for now I wanted to post my thoughts on everything I did. THE CLASSES: Beginner Blending with Brice Cocanour This class was fun and a bit much for me since all I have done is basecoat, wash, drybrush. It did give me some great info to bring home and practice with on my many Bones until I get it figured out. Create Your Own Scenic Base: Fantasy/Horror with Bob Ridolfi I have never based or built any kind of diorama so going into this class I was very green. I got to do some basics with a small horror base with crumbling wall and using materials supplied to get a gravesite started. It even came with a cool skeleton mini not sold in stores AND many great stories and tips from Bob. I wish I had taken his modern basing class too. Reaper Bones Convert 'n' Take with Bryan Stiltz When I took this class it was because I had a way to RC on Friday after all and so signed up last minute to have something to do. I am glad I did because just watching the cool things others made (some had 6 conversions before I did my 1) and even making my own using a giant body, the wood spirit head and fist, and then some wings because i mentioned something about how hard it would be and then Bryan making me do it. Taking the class gave me a bit more knowledge on how to chop up bones and glue them together in strange ways if i feel so inclined. Miniatures Prep & Assembly with Tish Wolter Another class I wish had been taken last year because it helped me learn a bit more about some things like pinning which I have yet to do and ways to clean up flash and mold lines. Tish even demoed the use of green stuff for me by using some on my converted bones where the wings met the cloak. Creative Scenic Basing with Erin Hartwell Corporea....'nuff said. :) Seriously though. I had only had Bob's class on basing so far and going into this one I was just flooded with so much awesome info. We ended up not really doing a base but instead listened to her go over supplies and things she uses for making bases/dioramas. She did do a hands on for how she makes tiny flowes and leaves. Not an easy thing to do and it will require much more practice. So many basing goodies were given and I need to pick up some tools before I can try to use them all. Painting Red with Aaron Lovejoy This class was another informative one by a great artist. He walked us through the steps and even had to repeat a few times for a couple of us that had issues getting it. The information I got in this class is another one I will need to work on and practice but would like to get it down so I can work on a mini I have put aside who would have a red robe and have been afraid to paint him. THE BANQUETS: Both of the banquets were a fun social event. Friday night we had a great table and I met some new painting friends. We had some luck at the raffle and Harrek won a paint set he already owned so he passed it around the table letting us take one paint until it was emptied. That is what this is all about. The miniature painting community getting together for some good times and sharing their spoils. :) The Saturday banquet was filled with laughs and a few new forum friends at the table but no raffle wins. I came to the conclusion that our table only wins when Adrienne is drawing the tickets. THE GAMES: A lot of games going on but I never played any. I usually had 1 1/2 hours to play but most looked like they would take more time than that. THE PAINTING CONTEST: Wow is about all I can say. My hands nearly bled from all the clapping. So many entrants with so many entries. I gotta make some kind of promise to get something painted for next year because I feel like I missed out. THE ARTISTS: Great as always. Very friendly and willing to talk. I met/talked with more this year than last year and I am glad I did. THE VENDORS: Lots of good stuff and I spent plenty of money again. I have a problem going around to each one and not buying something...even if only a $7 item. THE SWAG: Awesome!!! So much stuff in so little time. OVERALL: I am sure I missed something but overall I am glad I went again and look forward to next year...if they don't break me with Bone IV Kickstarter. :P Thank you Reaper for a great week(end)!!!!

    Home Safe

    Figured after ShadowRaven's adventures last year it would be a good idea to post. If you were traveling or know of forumites who made it home in one piece feel free to post. I got home without incident 45 minutes ago.
  4. Back home from another year. Thanks to everyone who made it fun.
  5. So neat byproduct of entering your minis into the ReaperCon Master Series Paint Contest is that they take really nice photos of your minis. Did these a few years ago but I've never entered before and they were one of the few painted pieces I inadvertently brought to the con. Several of the other forumites strong armed me into entering and I'm glad they did. These guys did suffer from the "Hey this is Gloss sealer, not Matte!" but other than that I'm still pretty proud of them.

    Dice Rehoming

    FREE TO A GOOD HOME! So I have a bit of a problem, and I'm hoping my friends at the con can help me take care of the problem. I love to buy the Chessex pound-o-dice. I love them so much I have several pounds of dice that never get used. Way back some forumites mentioned that they did not realize dice collecting is a thing so I thought I could share the wealth. If your collection is lacking, If you are new to all this, If you just want to say "I got a die from Ludo" (Sorry no ribbon for that this year.) Come find me at the con. I'm pretty easy to find, 6'2" with a black bowler hat. If I'm not in class or playing CAV I'm at the table with Loim and all his basing moss.
  7. So... I've finally gotten started on the ReaperCon theme entry for 2015. This is where we are and well... It's a mess. LOL! I've got quite a bit of work to do, not including painting. This project is largely experimental and we'll have to see where it goes.... Hmmm....
  8. With Reaper in the middle of fulfillment I figured I would start announcing confirmed manufacturer awards here rather than waiting for Bryan to have time to update the website. This is only for the 2015 painting competition. I'll update this first post as I confirm additional manufacturers and hopefully give attendees plenty of time to get some excellent entries entered. Of course there are three Sophie Trophies (gold, silver & bronze) available for the best Reaper miniatures in three of the categories: Painter, Open and Diorama/Vignette. Currently, there are no plans to add Sophie Trophies for the vehicle/ordnance category. Dark Sword Miniatures: Overall Dark Sword Miniatures Best in Show - Best Dark Sword Mini or Diorama wins $200 in Dark Sword Online Store credit for Dark Sword products. Jessica Rich and TBD guest judges (Jess will pull in 1-2 guest judges at the show) will be selecting the winner of this award. DGS Games: Overall DGS/Freeblade Games Miniature Best in Show - $50 Gift Cerificate Red Box Games: Overall Red Box Games Miniatures Best in Show - $100 Gift Certificate for 1st Place, $50 Gift Certificate for 2nd. TGJ Hobbies - TGJ Hobbies Choice Award - full paint rack set awarded to the painter of TGJ's favorite miniature in the competition (will feature the Reaper Logo). Secret Weapon Miniatures - Best Weathering - SWM will award their Weathering trophy (cast and hand painted by Justin McCoy) to the best weathered model in the competition (not necessarily a vehicle). Hasslefree Miniatures: Overall Hasslefree Miniatures Best in Show - Best Hasslefree entry wins $200 GC for Hasslefree products. Hasslefree Kiddie Award - $50 GC for Meg and Luke's favorite entry in the competition.
  9. Hello all! This is your official update: the dates on the ReaperCon "Save The Date" Magnet are INCORRECT. The dates for ReaperCon 2015 will be: THURSDAY APRIL 30 - SUNDAY MAY 3rd, 2015. We had a bit of a hotel mix-up and they were unable to give us the consecutive days we needed, so we had to switch. The dates listed above have been reserved for us by the Hilton, so we should be good to go. We know it's a whole year away, but we wanted to update you all super-early, so you have time to plan!
  10. I received a PM some time ago about partnered entries being allowed in the competition. My gut reaction was no, but I indicated that I would discuss it with the Head Judge (Clever Crow) and I finally got around to that today. We want to be inclusive of different ways to participate in the competition so we are going to allow partnered entries starting with the 2015 competition. 1) All participants must be present when entering the competition with their mutual piece (i.e. no, "I'm going to play a game could you enter it?" shenanigans). The entry will not be accepted if all the participants are not present. 2) Its one entry so only one medal will be awarded. Even if 10 people are involved still only one medal. Additional rules may be added as we work through some of the other ramifications.
