  1. 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) 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) Gremlin Units 11 and 12 (trip line pair, broken cable across chest, possibly falling over from sudden jolt) Gremlin Unit 13 (ECM unit, some large radar dish looking thing) Gremlin Units 14, 15 and 16 (cargo units, loaded up with stolen supplies and headed out) Gremlin Units 17, 18, 19, and 20 (gun units) Gremlin Units 21, 22, and 23 (missile units) Gremlin Unit 24 (large gun unit) Gremlin Unit 25 and 26 (junked units; scavenged for parts?) Gremlin Unit 27 (2nd style missile unit) Gremlin Unit 28 (personnel carrier unit) 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 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

    ReaperCon 2019 Ribbons

    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.
  3. 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

    Maow Miniatures Monstropot

    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!
  6. 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
  7. 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
  9. Howdy, Can't seem to glaze for the life of me, Kev! P.S. Click thru for light box pics
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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.

    Chibi Monique Denoir (Bones 4)

    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).
  16. 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.

    Hobby Hijinx Corner 2019

    *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.

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.
  18. So this is my second gold medal win in Painters, so I think I can speak pretty confidently about what the judges are looking for in that category and it’s not about the base, at least not in its entirety. You need only to look at Rhonda Bender’s work to see quite clearly that it’s not all about the base - Rhonda bases her figures very simply, often doing little more than painting the stock base, but her work as a whole is phenomenal. Winning Gold in Painters really is all about the painting and attention to every detail. If you’re leaving mold lines or flash and I can see rubbed off spots of paint or spots where your application was bad/messy/splotchy, you’re not going to win a Gold. This is the same reason that smaller figures are better to attempt in Painters - because it’s less surface area to police and ensure every spot is completely polished. I see so many people attempting things like NMM and freehand that they think will score them extra brownie points for attempting advanced techniques, but generally these techniques are more of a hindrance if they’re not executed perfectly. No freehand is better than imperfectly executed freehand. A nice base will not carry you past unrefined technique any more than using nice colours and having good composition will distract away from bad prep. You have to have every puzzle piece in its place to win Gold in Painters. If you’re missing even just one, you’re going to get a Silver.
  19. So I've been poking at this diorama idea for a couple of years, and it's morphed a bit since I first started it, but I'm thinking that I'm nearing the final composition. But... I'm beginning to second guess myself. So, do you think this tells a good/clear story? Should I remove the adventurers from their bases, or paint the bases to match the floor? Any and all thoughts welcome!
  20. Hey all! Time for the 2019 ReaperCon Forumite Bingo! So, those of you who were on the cards previously, or got a card last year know how the game works, so you can skip the next paragraph. What is Forumite Bingo? It's a convention game I came up that is generally well received so I will do it again this year. The game is just like what a bingo game would be, but rather than calling out numbers to fill your card, you must go around and introduce yourself to members of the forum who are on your card. Say hi to them, and you can cross their box off. Once you've made "bingo", return to me for your Bingo ribbon. Blackout isn't required, but several people did it for the grins, and this year there will be a ribbon for doing that. And there's nothing to 'prove' you met those who you have said you have, just the honor system. You only punish yourself by cheating yourself out of meeting wonderful people. Each year there are more volunteers than spaces, so not every one was on every card, and hopefully there will be enough volunteers again this year. It made for a good variety. So, this thread is not for signing up to receive a card to play. This is a signup for people who are willing to be on a card. The cards will be freely handed out at the convention. Just come find me. Be aware, volunteering to be on the card will mean that complete strangers will be coming up to meet you, and they may not be actually signed up and be on this forum. That happens more often than I thought it would each year. If that makes you uncomfortable, then reconsider volunteering. So, the ground rules: I exclude the Reaper peeps since they are all pretty accessible. The game's purpose is to meet the forum members. I will continue that. Sorry peeps, we love ya, but I feel that's best. The free square in the middle will be me, since everybody has to meet me to get the card it seems the fairest way. You must be going to ReaperCon to be on the card please! And if possible, the full Thursday to Saturday at least. It's unfair to those whose card you are on if you don't show, or are a Saturday only person. I will not exclude you if you are a Saturday only (or similar) limited attendee. However, people who have you on their cards will get to cross you off without meeting you if you aren't there when they need you for bingo. By replying with the information below, you are giving your permission to use the picture provided and your name provided, and to be inundated with people introducing themselves to you. Once I've printed the cards (much closer to the con than I want), they are set in stone. I can't remove people from the cards, and they're a bit pricey to just toss. Plans change, life happens, and if you become a no-show, you simply become a gimme square and are crossed off automatically by those who need your square. It already happened once and well, it will probably happen again. We'll just roll along in those cases. Signups will be open from now until August 17th. That gives me a mere two weeks to randomize the cards and have them printed on card stock. If a mod would auto-lock this thread on that date, that would be appreciated. Once the thread is locked, no more volunteers will be accepted. One does not need to be very active on these forums to be on the card, but it helps people to recognize you. I will not turn away anybody that isn't very active if they really want to be on the card. If there's a question about any of these numbered questions, please quote the text since the numbering is automatic and I can't control it if there's an insertion. I will update these rules as questions and issues come up. All ready to sign up? Good! Here's what you need to do. Reply to this thread with: The name you want to use. I prefer your forum handle, so people might have some idea of who you are. They can always write your real name across the square as a way of crossing you off, but it's up to you what name to have on the card. What picture you wish to use for your square. Again, I prefer your forum picture, but if you are someone who changes it often, I might grab one that isn't current so having you explicitly give me one helps. What days you will be at ReaperCon. I'll put the days you won't be there on the square, and this will help us know if your are there that day or not. I'm only using Thursday thru Saturday, with Wednesday as a simple bonus day. This is optional, but if you could also send a recent picture of your actual self via PM to me if I don't have one already or your appearance has shifted drastically, I'd appreciate it. Something like a full on face shot, without costume. I have my ReaperDex/"cheat sheet" of sorts on my phone to help myself remember who is who. This way I can help direct people to those members they're still needing to collect. My brain isn't wired to put names to faces easily, and being tired from the Con won't help that. Having something I can use to point the way will help. Again, this is optional. I think that's it for now. See you all in a month!

    ReaperCon Survival Kits

    Thank you to Cranky Dog for the idea. Lots of people have been asking what to bring, expect etc. I figured it would be a good idea to list off what I'm bringing and why. PLEASE TRY TO KEEP POST LIMITED TO LISTS AND ON TOPIC QUESTIONS/ANSWERS Notebook If you're taking a class this is almost a must. Even if you aren't having scratch paper is great. If you get some one on one with some of the artist you'll definitely want it. Writing Utensils See above Battery Backup for Electronics The powers that be have mentioned that there will not be power available in the main hall. Since con is not at the hotel it will be harder to get power. Paintbrushes Everyone has their own favorite brush(s) learning the techniques with the brushes you have makes it easier to duplicate at home. Water Cup There are disposable cups floating around but I like being self sufficient Pallets, Wet and Dry There are paper plates and such floating around but I'm used to my stuff. Brush Soap I've finally taken CashWilley's advice and bought good brushes. Leaving the soap on the bristles is a life saver when you don't have time to properly clean them before your next class. Paints I keep mine in a Craftsman tool box while at cons. While Reaper has the paint rack I try to leave the paints for first timers or people who fl in and can't bring in all their stuff. Battery Powered Desk Lamp The powers that be have mentioned that there will not be power available in the main hall where the open painting will be. While I can paint without one, it's better to have and not need than need and not have. Tool Kit This has some files, pin vise and wire, super glue, hobby knife, Sharpie, etc. I am the prepared boy scout. Examples of my work. Everyone should enter the painting competition regardless of your level. They will post a picture of every min entered on the online gallery after the con so you'll have something to remember each year by. I also use the examples so instructors can gauge my skill level and advise me appropriately. Sculptors also love getting to see examples of their work painted up. Works in progress This year I'm taking classes on gemstones and shading. I'm bringing a project I'm struggling with so the instructor can give pointers specifically to my model. Something to store your loot in If you have the weekend pass you'll get the swag bag but it come fairly full. I keep a plastic for miscellaneous things including all my new acquisitions. Drinking container It's surprisingly easy to get dehydrated at conventions. Make sure you keep taking in fluids all day. A 2 wheel collapsible dolly. I stack everything on and secure it with bungies. Its just the right size that I can put it behind my chair during games or against the wall in classes. A Convention Buddy Make sure you have a way to get ahold of at least one other person at the con.That way if you loose your passport, get stuck at the airport, car breaks down etc we can send help. Dice I'll be playing a few games and prefer to use my dice so I'll be sure to bring them.

    Impact chibi raptor

    Presenting my Lisa Frank velociraptor! I love him! He just screamed at me to be fun colors! And I have to brag n the green stuff world mushrooms,they're pretty fantastic. He's my painters entry for reapercon; I'm motoring on with all my other entries. I'm interested in what you think, so c&c away!
  23. I'd asked after last year's Reapercon who to contact about volunteering. Initially it was Lady Storm but when she retired it changed and I think it was @ReaperAHawk that became the new point of contact. Who, what and where do I need to send a request to help at Reapercon? Posted here in case others were wondering the same.

    Number 3! Frumitty is supposed to resemble Mort from Madagascar. Also, check out his pockets, HE HAS STRAWBERRIES! How cute is that? I love that Jason Wiebe took the time to sculpt little strawberries. :D C&C is always welcome!

    I just love this little guy!! I've been on a 'woodland critter' kick for a bit, and I'm so glad to have finished this guy. I'm working on a diorama for Reapercon, so that's why he doesn't appear to be based. Let me know what you think! C&C is always welcome and appreciated!
