I might be able to do something during the last two weekends of July. I can try to schedule something up here, if @fanguad, @Unit04, or @Bathory are available, but if we're not likely to get a good showing, maybe something further South/West makes more sense.

I don’t foresee myself having anything during the day on either weekend. I can probably drag Todd along.

I can't commit to a date since I work a lot of Saturday overtime and don't know whether or not I'm working until two days before.

 

It might be best if y'all scheduled a MA meet.

I think I'm good for that.  I've got board gaming that night but that's not until later.  And the next weekend is more Pathfinder so...yeah.  The 21st.  I'll try to keep it open.

OK.

 

Does anybody have a venue preference? I am in the process of checking out some of the newer options for a variety of reasons, but that leaves us:

 

Hobby Bunker [Malden]

Alpha Omega Hobbies [Quincy]

Lucky Goblin Games [Quincy]

Maybe something else?

 

I am personally inclined to check out one of the Quincy options, just because I don't think the Bunker is my first choice of store to hang out in. On the other hand, our local group is clustered closer to the Bunker than to the other two.

Looked up the Quincy locations and both look nice, Todd’s also down with checking out a new gaming store.

All right. I'll see what I can arrange this week.

Alpha Omega Hobby says they have room for us tomorrow, so I think we're on.

 

(They note that their regular hobby day is Sunday, so maybe we can explore that next time we're up here. :upside: )

 

Anybody feel like coordinating rides from the Somerville/Arlington/Medford area?

Sure.  If anyone needs a ride from the Greater Arlington Co-Prosperity Zone, let me know.  I usually bring Fan-gourd with me but I'm not certain of his availability tomorrow.  

 

So I can fit two additional adults if he is coming, and 3 if he's not.

What time are folks planning on being there? 

I have to do yard work for a bit before it gets too sunny and will probably clean up then head over.

In trying to convince some friends to show up, I kind of committed to being there between 12 and 1. I can easily take  2 or 3 people with me to/from the greater Arlington-Somerville area.

Cool, I will probably aim for the same time. I’m probably going to drag Todd to do chores after or before so we will take his car

I'm happy to swing by and pick you guys up between 11:30 and 12:00, if you prefer. PM me, if you want to arrange a car pool. Otherwise, I'll see you both there.

      I'm a fan of the Scale 75 paints, they have a new range called artist colors.
      The paint comes in tubes.
       
      I wonder if anyone has tried these?
      You're thoughts on these?

      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. :(

      Good morning guys! 
       
      Q: if buying one of the reaper core sets (108 bottle set), what's the main difference in them? 
       
      I'm looking into buying a complete paint set. I've been doing a ton of research and have settled on a reaper core set (i already own several reaper paints and love them).  I know that everyone suggests a blend of several companies based on which has the best,  e.g. yellow,  or metallics. I just want to make it simple, buy a set and build from there. 
       
      I'll mostly be painting 40k and privateer press models with some terrain and 3d prints mixed in (i have a cheapo set of acrylics from Michael's for large terrain and 3d prints).
       
      I've also considered the Vallejo Model set, and Army Painter Mega Set.
       
      Thanks in advance!

      A noobish question, should I thin down reaper washes? Or are they ready to use out of the dropper? 
      Sorry if this has been asked.

      About
      Cuttlefish Colors is a hobby acrylic paint line that we here at the studio have developed.  These paints work and blend very well with other major brands of hobby paint on the market right now, but at a much cheaper price tag.
      Why use Cuttlefish colors
      Beastclaw Raider painted using Cuttlefish Colors For years we used just about every other major brand of hobby paint out there, always looking for that perfect color, the smoothest paint and the most cost effective. 
       Lets face it, if you’re into tabletop war-gaming you know how expensive this hobby can be.  We were so tired of spending 5-6 dollars a bottle on paint, only to have them dry out with their flip top lids, the dropper styles were great but so difficult for us to get locally, and the consistency of the color varied greatly. 
      Deathguard Marine painted using Cuttlefish Colors So, ten years ago we began doing research on the properties of hobby paint, how it’s made and where we can get the materials to do this.  After hundreds of failed attempts to “make” our own paint and thousands of dollars spent on failed formula’s we finally found the one that worked the best.
      This formula gives you a smooth thin coat with good coverage and blends fantastically with other colors in the line, AS WELL AS other hobby paints on the market.  we began to experiment with different pigments and for the past 2 years have been painting miniatures with the paints we would mix up and bottle for ourselves.  
      It was about 6 months ago that our friends and local game group started asking about what colors we used and we told them, Well, We make our own.  Ever since that day people have been asking us "Can we buy some of your paint?"   After thinking about it and seeing if it was possible...well...here we are!  
      We are very excited to bring our line of hobby paints to everyone, and can't begin to thank you enough for checking us out and hopefully, just hopefully pledging!  
        Thanks from the bottom of our hearts,
      Cephalopod Studios
