  1. I had a brief discussion with Michael Proctor (Clever Crow) about the Open Category while we were at Genghis Con. It is was worth pointing out to everyone that your display can include pictures of your in progress work. In fact for this category I would encourage it. While we are familiar enough with Reaper miniatures to confidently figure out conversion work there are a lot of miniatures out there that we aren't familiar with. If you have pictures of the stock model (even off the manufacturer's site) and what you converted it would be of tremendous help to the judges figuring how extensive an
  2. I might be having some trouble seeing the ReaperCon website. I'm on a third-gen ipad with Safari, and all I can see is the home page and the sign-in page. Clicking on anything else gets me a blank page with the header on it. Do I need to be signed in to see the rest of the site?
  3. So I'm gonna add the ArtistCon Mouseling mini to the Moat House dungeon for ReaperCon....somewhere. Curious if anyone can think of stats to give him. I'm sure there is something in there that I can use for him, but figured I'd brainstorm the forum. What I'd like are old school D&D (or in this case Sword & Wizardry) creature creation for levels 3-5. Let see what everyone can come up with!!
  4. 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 particip
  5. So, my most recent work. I am quite happy with how he looks in hand. Comments and critiques are eagerly sought by all. Also, this is the first mini I have ever painted that I have given thought to posting in the inspiration gallery. What do you all think, should I,or should i wait until my skills improve a little more yet?
  6. I am trying to get a head start on a theme game for Reapercon 2015 using the Warlord Rules and the RAGE system. I think the "monsters" can translate fairly well for what I am thinking. However, to use minis like the Nova Corp, who have ranged weaponry, can melee up close, etc... How would you translate that or What datacards would you start with to not totally imbalance the game. Issues I am seeing... using soldiers with ranged weapons isn't as "hit or miss" as archery and spears. The soldiers should hit (MAV) as frequently as knights in combat, not the 2s and 3s for ranged combat,
  7. A while back, I found some excellent toy water pistols shaped and embellished like something Flash Gordon would keep in his bedside table drawer, just in case Ming tried a home invasion, you know? They came in packs of three, with six different designs. I bought all six, and began painting them (each is molded in a single color of plastic). Fine retro ray guns! Today, I noted that Dollar Tree has those same zap guns, again in packs of three... at a dollar a pack. I picked up some more. I think I may come to Reapercon next year as a Martian arms dealer...
  8. After the success of the ribbons at this years Reapercon I decided to create Ribbons for all the contests I'm involved with on this forum+ the year long giant contest. If you attend Reapercon and find me, I'll have a list of people that earned each ribbon, I'll hand over what you earned. How you earn Ribbons Enter a valid entry into a contest while it's active. A entry can only earn you one ribbon, so if you paint something and enter it into two overlapping competitions you only can claim one ribbon for that entry. This includes splitting up a diorama into single figures or taking a

    I apologize if the topic is covered somewhere, but I couldn't find the answer to my question on the forums or an affiliated site. If it's already covered, please link me. How does one go about volunteering for ReaperCon? I loved attending this year and would like to give some of my time next year to making it as great for others as it was made for me. Help?

    2014 Feedback

    Now that ReaperCon (my first!) is over, I'd love to know what people thought about it, especially versus other years. I know I had a blast! Bring on the good, the bad, and the ugly.
  11. As many of you may know by now, I'm the "Fiasco Master" of ReaperCon and I want to humbly thank all of my many players for sitting down at a table and playing their hands at Fiasco. There were so many great stories woven at those tables, I would love it if the players would regale us with their recolections of their game sessions. As the one who simply brings the books and materials and sort of just guides players though the very light rules of the game, I enjoy sitting back and listening to the radio dramas that emminate out of the players' imaginations. My only regret is at the "Fiasco A

    ReaperCon Tee

    I finally got around to ordering my ReaperCon T-Shirt and it came in exactly as I customized it. In case you are unaware, with Zazzle, you can change things up a bit. You do not have to go with the exact design as presented, and it doesn't cost you a penny more. And yes... I "removed" the actual ReaperCon line by dropping it out of the printable area. I am a fan of more obscure iconography. Now people have to ask me what the shirt means.
  13. Hello, My friend and I played the Dungeon Crawl game at ReaperCon 2014, and it was great fun (with an amazing dungeon layout!!), and our first exposure to Warlord. I have a few questions, though, and I was hoping to get some insight. - The rules used were just the regular Warlord rules, but in a skirmish format? - Would it be possible to get a copy of the warband sheet? - From where are the monster stats? - Would it be possible to get copies of the random tables used? - Is the playing card initiative a Warlord thing? I really liked that. The two guys running it were very helpfu
  14. Did you come by the demo table at RCon'14? If you did, I was the tall lanky guy behind the tables. ***DISCLAIMER*** I have no affiliation with Reaper or CAV:SO (Other than being a huge fanboy) So If you did come by the table, did you get a demo? Did you get a game in?
  15. I am so jealous of those of you who have $199 to spare! A full-size Nethyrmaul is available in the booth, in resin of course. They've got an assembled version hanging out at the checkout counter if you simply want to gawk.
  16. I just wanted to thank everyone, staff and otherwise, for helping my wife and I have a great reapercon experience. I started painting about a year ago and promptly got sucked into working 80 hours a week, so I spent almost zero time on the forums and we knew absolutely nobody here. Even so, we were unfailingly treated like a best friend by everyone, even when it was clear by the confused look in their eyes that they had no clue whatsoever who we were! (Interesting side note: ReaperBryan does not at all exhibit this confused look under any circumstances.) The classes were fantastic and the gami
  17. 4/13/14 EDIT: A sample of the tournament scenarios is now available. Thank you for bearing with us. 3/31/14 EDIT: Pool play have been given a 5 Turn maximum. Finals games have no Turn maximum. There is also no scenarios and no scoring for the finals games; they are pure kill 'em all, last (wo)man standing. If neither side in a finals game is able to eliminate the other, then the player that has inflicted the most casualties wins and will advance. Terrain for the tables has been finalized, and the scenarios for pool play are about a third finished. A representative sampling of them will be
  18. Greetings from the shambling horde! I'll be hosting two games of Zombicide at ReaperCon this year, and I'm looking forward to eating...whoops!...meeting anyone who signs up. These are two firsts for me - first ReaperCon and first time running a game at a con. I can't wait to see what everyone brains...sorry...brings to the table. .millionsofRobots
  19. Less of an issue cause we don't have to wait on any groggy Reaper folks to unlock the door but in case anyone forgot to check.

  20. So, the week before Reapercon, I find out the Monday and Tuesday before I leave to drive to Reapercon, I will be driving 6 hours each day to Lexington KY for a 2 hour meeting on Tuesday afternoon. On my drive home, my boss texts me that I had better check my email before I head out. He had tried to schedule me for meetings on Tuesday, only to find out the I already had meetings scheduled, in Lexington for the Tuesday after Reapercon... When I don't get back to Greenville until Monday afternoon.... So, anyone in the Lexington area up for dinner on Tuesday night?
  21. How big is she? Is she standard mini sized or bigger? I am not at reapercon and was planning to order her but her price seems kind of high for a standard size mini and she doesn't have any Bryangles in the picture.
  22. A New miniature emerges! A Mouse with no name! (01530: 2014 Convention Mousling: Mouse with No Name by Victoria Lamb) So many new minis! I am drooling on them all!!!
  23. I like the new ReaperCon Sophie. Will she available during the ReaperCon in the webshop to order her? From Germany it is not easy to be at the ReaperCon's.
  24. The ReaperCon Class Schedule can now be found here: https://reapercon.com/classes The ReaperCon Games Schedule can be found here: https://reapercon.com/games There are options to look at just a given day, or to see everything. Play around. *the schedule will be removed from this post when the ReaperCon website is updated with the schedule NOW - ALSO BE AWARE We have several instructors we are working with to finalize the details of their classes. These will fill most of the TBD (To Be Determined) spaces. HAVE FUN!
  25. WHOOOHOOOO! The count down timer to Reapercon has been posted! Now I no longer have to do the math in my head!
