Darsc Meets ReaperBryan at PAX! (Plus pics of the Reaperbooth)

Recommended Posts

Since the description of the Reaper General forum states it's the place to gush about Reaper, let me gush. ::):


First my thanks to ReaperBryan and ReaperShannon for making my trip down to Seattle possible!


It was a very real pleasure meeting and working with them and all the other volunteers from the forums and elsewhere. A chance of meeting the Reaperfolks was not something on my radar as little as a couple of weeks ago, so getting to talk and spend as much time as I did with them was really something pretty special.


They really are as nice as people who have met them previously had described them and I'm quite happy for them that the Reaper booth had the success that it had at this years PAX.


Now here's a pic of Bryan letting Darsc wear "The Hat".





A wide pic of the room containing the "Paint and Take" and the Reaper store.





Of course all the Bones were available for sale.

Reaper was right across from the Soda Pop Miniatures booth.

The lineup outside Reapers room for the Paint and Take was continuos through the cons 4 day run.

Well, at least until 3pm on the last day when we ran out of the free mini's to give out.






All good things must come to an end though, and so does PAX.

Monday night everything needed to be packed into shipping crates and I learned something new.


I'd no idea that Reaperbryan had Helper Elves!

Finally everything gets packed away into crates and is ready to go, but not before a group shot photo or two or twenty is taken.



(Unfortunately due to work schedules and the like, there are a few volunteers missing from the photo)




And finally finally late into the evening everything is loaded on a truck to be taken to the shipper.





I have a lot of respect for the work ethic of all the volunteers and especially of ReaperBryan and ReaperShannon. Those two worked extremely long hours for the entire setup, run, and takedown of the con with only limited breaks and still managed to stay upbeat and fun to work with throughout.


Outstanding job everyone!

One last thing.


As much as I enjoyed helping Reaper out at their booth at PAX this year, if anyone from Soda Pop Miniatures should happen to be reading this... I do think I just might possibly be persuaded to help out at your booth next year.







Just sayin'...

Balls! I knew there was a good reason to go to Seattle this last weekend! I just couldn't remember what it was! Drat my leaky, sleep-deprived brain! :angry:


At you least you had fun, and I don't think anyone would blame you for switching to the Soda-Pop booth ^_^

Yay pictures! :D


Glad you had an awesome time, Darsc, THE HAT looks pretty stylin' on you.


So...many...Bones.... *drool* I've never even seen that many minis in one place before. Maybe it's a good thing we couldn't end up going, I probably would have grabbed as many minis as I could hold and run off screaming "My Precious!!!!"

Aw, no pics of me :(

Sorry cbp. I feel bad about that. I was meaning to take pics of everyone helping out right from day one but there was so much else to do and so many distractions. ::(:




I thought that Reaper had helper gnomes. Glad to see they're putting those lazy elves to work. I mean really, what kind of example is hanging out in a tree and baking all day

My thoughts exactly!


Although these particular elves make buttons. Not cookies...although come to think of it, just because they didn't bring cookies doesn't necessarily mean they don't bake them.

      My husband and I run the Paint and Take table at a local convention, Recruits.  It's held at the high school, admission is free for all area students, games are child friendly, etc.  We get really good turnout.  The paint table is free for kids of all ages, even grownup kids, and it is funded entirely with donations.  All of the figures, all of the paint, water cups, brushes, etc come from the wonderful community we have here, from the internet, and from vendors.  It's typical for me to arrive early Saturday to set up and find one or more anonymous boxes of figures or paint waiting.  A couple of years ago at Reapercon folks helped fill a box with mouslings for me to give away.  I could not do this without the support I get from the painting and gaming community. 
      So here is this year's class:
      (BTW, if you got stuff in your Bones4 core that you do not want, find me at next year's Reapercon, I will see it goes to a good cause)
      This is our table about ten minutes after setting up.  Busy the entire day. 

      Some of the fine works of art created by the kids who participated.  They look forward to this all year. 



      Got to pick up more baby dragons next year. I only had the one and it resulted in crying. :(  




      More later,

      For the last three years, I've gotten to attend Origins in Ohio, and have really loved doing the Reaper Speedpaint (and even won last year). I was hoping to go and participate in the Speedpaint again this year, but I was going through the Origins 2019 event schedule and didn't see a single entry from Reaper. Is Reaper not going to be at Origins this year, or at least not hosting any events?

      My crew of five drew an earliest hotel registration time of 2:00 this afternoon, which wasn't enough to score a room in a connected hotel.  It looks like we'll be out by the airport again this year, so that will place a premium on traveling light, and shopping responsibly. 
      Next task, decide whether we're driving, and how to configure two different miniature war-games for air travel.  Perhaps this is the year when Fat Dragon fold-flat buildings will cover the table...

      Sooo .... who else is going to Paizocon?
      That's .. erm, May 25th to 28th - so I might be a bit late asking for some of you. ^^;
      I know Mr. Thorne and I will be there. Don't know what all we'll be doing exactly, but I know we'll be there.

      Anyone else going up to the Cold Wars Wargaming Convention in Lancaster, PA this weekend?    
      I'll be in the Paradise Room (the "HAWKs' room") most of the time, so stop in and say, "hi!"  
      I'll be co-GMing a trio of off the wall games on Friday night and Saturday: 
      1) Santa and the Great Zeppelin Attack (Fri. 7PM)
      2) Duke Morrison and the great Zeppelin Raid (Sat 9AM)
      3)  A Lily Pad Too Far  (Sat 7PM)
