Less than a month! What are you looking forward to the most?


Recommended Posts

Is there anything on the way in from the airport?


Seriously, we have to stop talking about BBQ! I swear I'm gaining weight just by reading this thread.


I guess it could be worse. I don't think that Texas would have much in the way of sushi - my other vice.

Re: BBQ on the way in - there is a BBQ stand on the south side of Swisher (that would be your left, if you are heading in to Reaper from I-35), no more than a 1/2 of a mile down the road from the Swisher/I-35E junction. They are in the parking lot of a strip center, and I wanna say the name of the place is Dusty's. You could do worse for your first BBQ stop in TX.


Also, there is decent sushi to be had in the Denton-Lewisville area. About a dozen of us went out for sushi one of the evenings last year, and we had a very nice meal. Sorry, MC, you are boned. :lol:

Yep, I realize that I just have to surrender and go with the flow.


Reaper just announced their award ceremony for Wednesday which includes brisket! I'm guessing everything in Texas includes brisket at this point.


"welcome to the Best Western Mr. Jacobi. We hope you enjoy your stay with us. Here is your room key and a complementary bucket of brisket. If you need fresh towels or extra bibs, please feel free to call the front desk."

Yeah, BBQ for the "Meet & Eat" has become a tradition over the last several years. It's a great way to ease into the con, have a nice meal, and socialize. Regrettably, due to Kim's flight schedule, I don't think we'll make it in time for dinner (or if we do, it's going to be very close). Enjoy!

      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.
      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.

      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.

      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!

      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?

      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?

      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.
