Now that I am in a few classes and given that I am driving down and can bring supplies easily, I want to be sure I have what I need for each class.  Is there a way to contact the instructor to see what they want us to bring?  I'd think that there would be merit to having a figure you want to work on as your "class project".  But I can also see it might be easier for the instructor to want everyone working on the same figure.  And I'd like to leave the supplied paints for those who can not bring their own as I can easily use mine.

 

I guess given we have plenty of time here, I want to be as prepared for each class as I can be.

Bring a brush, whatever palette is your favored type if you're picky, and examples if your recent work for painting classes. For sculpting classes some sculpting medium (green stuff, apoxie sculpt, etch) and sculpting tools, maybe a little Vaseline. Aside from that, all materials will be provided.

So a figure will be provided for class use?  Examples a good idea.

Hey!  Sorry I missed Anne's plug earlier!  I do have the distinction of teaching a well-regarded class for the past, what, seven or eight years or so?  In any case, classes are always available the day of the class, though you want to be at the register as early in the morning as possible to reserve your slot.  How Not to Suck has typically allowed 2-3 extra seats as it's literally me talking for two hours straight non-stop to kickstart tons of mini-painting goodness, so if you haven't gotten a slot yet don't despair.

Does this mean I need to be a fast writer if I want to take notes?  Got you down for the Friday 2PM slot...go easy on me.

Good luck trying to write as fast as John talks.

Woohoo! Awesome to know about the HNTS handout. I was worried I'd be missing out--my hearing ain't as good as it used to be, and my usual backup plan of recording everything doesn't seem to be an option at Reapercon.

I'm pretty bummed about this as well but it wouldn't be a rule if somewhere down the line, someone didn't abuse this and be a jerk about it. I respect their antirecording rules!

      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.
       
      BADGE RIBBONS
      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.

       
      THE RESIN VAT
      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.

       
      COUNTERBLAST FOR SAVAGE WORLDS
      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!
      Patrick & Vicky

      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?

      If you are still waiting on your exchange mini, look at your own risk..sadly my photo skills are lacking in catching all the contrast he has..

      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.
