Reaper forum houses, propose your house for Reaper-warts college for artistic wizards!


Recommended Posts

The most esteemed Space Pope, Bryanzilla I proposed a game in his question thread. His most serene and stylishly be-hatted countenance has blessed the creation of four(ish) houses for the Reaper Forums to compete each season for the highly coveted Sophie Cup!


This thread is for people to propose house names and house colors for the forums. I will arrange a poll to select 3-5 final choices once we have a bunch of suggestions. Please post your suggestions below!


Things to consider:


What house name to do you suggest?

What are the house colors?

How should houses gain or lose points?



Quoth the Space Pope:



Actually, this could be a fun game, if anybody wants to be the Official Space Pope Sorting Hat, we can invent Houses for Forumites, (instead of stealing the HP houses) and somebody can tally their points. We can come up with some rules,that our Volunteer Sorting Hat can do (assuming she/he spends a ton time surfing the forum and doesn't mind), that determine how you earn points for your house.


If somebody likes this idea and wants to be The Sorting Hat, then I invite them to start a new thread, first to decide via referendum what our four houses ARE (and the 'rules' for earning or losing points, as well as House Colors- and if there's not a House whose colors are purple and teal, I declare the entire game invalid), and after that, a new thread to sign up (volunteer basis only) for a given house.  Also somebody could earn major house points by drawing sig-banners that used the colors and looked fun.

House Basererin.


This is the house for people who spend all there time building the most awesome base ever... But struggle to finish painting the rest of the model.


There symbol is a corthian plinth with grape vines winding its way up the column, we're little gnomes, owls, ravens, snakes and a random assortment of devils cavort within the grape leaves.


There color is brown and grey..


They gain points by posting basing tutorials, and posting actually painted minis.

Haven't figured out how they would lose points.

House Almost There (or some other fancy name you English-speakers can come up with, wordplays in a different language is tough!): For those who never truly finish a mini, this is the "99% done" house.

      Reaper Challenge League 2022
      1) Intro
      2) How It Works
      3) Types of Challenges
      4) The Raffle

                         PDF Check List               Discord
             Welcome to the Reaper Challenge League (RCL), a system that rewards fans for completing community-based events and challenges. This will all be conducted via the Reaper Miniatures Discord, where there is a system in place to track points and administer raffles easily (see below).

      THIS IS NOT A CONTEST ----- This is meant to be a challenge against yourself to see what you can accomplish, not a contest to compete in against other people in the community. So enjoy your time in creating stuff and have fun doing it with everyone else!

      Only Reaper minis will be accepted except for in the Freebie/Bust categories. You can use any paints for submissions, the only exception is the Limited Palette challenge.

      How It Works:
      Users can submit photos of RCL projects on the #submissions area on Discord and receive points depending on the tier of challenge.
      These points can then in turn be used to purchase raffle tickets which will be drawn quarterly, with a large annual raffle at the end of the year. Only Reaper minis will be accepted for submissions, except for in the Freebie/Bust categories. You can use any paints for submissions, the only exception is the Limited Palette challenge. Each quarter, a RCL raffle shall be held during the last seven days. This ensures that people have ample time to enter tickets or finish any entries so your points may be exchanged into tickets. On the last day of the quarter, the raffle will be drawn, and winners posted. At the end of the year a larger raffle will occur that accounts all accrued points points you have earned yearly (spent and unspent).  Terms and Conditions may change at the discretion of Reaper Miniatures at any time.

      Type of Challenges:
         All entries must show some sign of trying and not just throwing paint on to get some quick points. In keeping of the spirit of the league, challenge yourself and see what you and others are capable of. The amount of points that each one challenge will grant are in the () below, as well on the PDF for the 2021 chart. Reaper Challenge League PDF

      The Raffle:
           The raffle will happen the last 7 days of each quarter, This will ensure that people have ample time to enter their tickets or finish any entries they need to complete before drawings. Tickets will be pulled on the last day of each quarter!
          This will all be done on the Discord server, as we have a bot that is programmed to keep track of members points and how many tickets they have. We will use this bot to open the drawing and for you to enter and participate with the system. The drawing will stay open for one week before doing the drawing on the last day at a set time!

      Thank you, the team!

      Frequently asked questions
      Q: I am just wondering if one model can be turned in for two different categories? 
      A: In the spirit of the challenge, we would like it if you submitted a different model for another challenge. As this isn't a contest and meant to get people hobbying. 🙂 so you would just be doing yourself a dissatisfaction!!!!!
      Q:  Since the Reaper Discord moves so insanely fast, how will winners be notified? 
      A:There will be a channel that is static that is read only, for raffle winner and other announcements. 
      Q: Will the raffle draws be things that can survive through colder climates when shipped? 
      A: Not to sure on the exact prizes but this ties into your third question, I can hold things for you if cold climate is an issue and ship it at an opportune time.
      Q: For the Quarterly holiday - what are you looking for for Q1?  Like would just, any winter/snowy model be ok, or do I need to figure out what a MLK day themed model would be? 😜
      A: The rules are very loose, as this is not a contest and is meant for you and others to hobby!!!!!! So if you think its a holiday or a special day? By all means paint something and present it under that challenge category, as long as you spent time and effort into making it, I will recognize it. As an example if you wanted to paint something that was for your birthday! i'll count that!

      Welcome to Getting to Know You, NOVEMBER 2020 Edition.
      The rules as they currently stand ( we all know most of you rebellious lot will ignore most of it, but one can try)
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 8:00 hours and 12:00 hours CET. ( Central European Time)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions will usually take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.
      All HAIL WOOF!

      So there's a thing called Inktober/Drawlloween that @Pingo reminded me about, where you draw/paint/sketch/art a thing every day during October. There's the "official" list of daily prompts...

      and this other one that Pingo found that I think is cooler.


      So who else is up for the challenge?

      The Three Color Challenge is the brain child of forumite (and CMPA member) skippen. The idea is to select a miniature, then select, or have someone else select, three colors with which to paint the figure. Black and White are added to allow for highlighting and shading and color mixing is allowed and encouraged. The idea is that by limiting the palette and maybe using colors that may fall outside of one's comfort range, something could be learned.
      If you wish to participate in this challenge, please do! If you're struggling with colors and lack friends who are willing to give you opinions, look in the spoiler tag below. When it comes to picking the colors, the idea behind the colors isn't to pick strange combinations or to make this intentionally difficult based on the color choices. You'll find it hard enough to operate without proper flesh tones or metallic paints. I found it a good suggestion because I had to stretch myself and use some paints in combinations I wouldn't have otherwise. Overall, the point is to have fun!
