2015 Reapercon In Review

Recommended Posts

 

We had a fantastic time. I have to say, when the Hubs changes his mind about something, it's remarkable. When we went, he wasn't optimistic about having a good time since I was in classes all day most days (took 8 and they were FANTASTIC. wouldn't change it for the world). But, he got in some 5th ed, which we hadn't tried yet (and now he's running it at home), and decided next year he'd like to take a sculpting class or two.

I plan on trying to sign up for at least one Bones conversion class.  "The Husbands" should all get together and try to make each other cringe with the abominations we can make from it.

 

 

So a quilting Party but with bones??

 

:P

So... Conversions After Dark?

If I go next year (and I hope too as it may be my only painting competition fix), I will stick with my 2 classes a day with a break in between, take some sculpting classes, hopefully a bones conversion class as I have only heard how fun it was, and plan better what to bring to paint. Also, paint more in the open area with folks I don't know.

I had a great time at ReaperCon.  We were happy with how our games turned out though it seemed that less people were playing miniature games than previous cons.  Perhaps next year we will on do 1 or 2 games and run them in the evening/later in the day.  One way or the other, we will figure it out.

 

I did get a chance for a few classes and all of them offered me insight to the hobby.  In particular, I appreciate the work Wren put into the transparent cloth class.  By far, it had the most take away for me both in instruction and handouts.

 

The banquets and BBQ's that Reaper put on were fun and offered some great company.  Beyond this, Reaper is VERY generous in the swag they offered for these events.  Thanks again for everything.

 

Overall, ReaperCon is a strange animal when compared to other conventions.  It is more relaxed and focused more on the hobby instead of they games.  I appreciate the opportunity to speak with my favourite sculptors and painters.  It inspires me to aim higher in the quality of my hobby.

ReaperCon is definitely unique. In the early years games were a complete after thought. You would have things like the traditional Settlers of Catan game Friday evening and maybe a couple of role-playing events. I enjoy this show quite a bit, I get to focus on one aspect of my hobby and not be distracted by anything else.

      So neat byproduct of entering your minis into the ReaperCon Master Series Paint Contest is that they take really nice photos of your minis. 
       
      Did these a few years ago but I've never entered before and they were one of the few painted pieces I inadvertently brought to the con. Several of the other forumites strong armed me into entering and I'm glad they did. 
       
      These guys did suffer from the "Hey this is Gloss sealer, not Matte!" but other than that I'm still pretty proud of them.

      Figured after ShadowRaven's adventures last year it would be a good idea to post. If you were traveling or know of forumites who made it home in one piece feel free to post.
       
      I got home without incident 45 minutes ago.

      FREE TO A GOOD HOME!
       
      So I have a bit of a problem, and I'm hoping my friends at the con can help me take care of the problem. I love to buy the Chessex pound-o-dice. I love them so much I have several pounds of dice that never get used. Way back some forumites mentioned that they did not realize dice collecting is a thing so I thought I could share the wealth. 
       
      If your collection is lacking,
      If you are new to all this,
      If you just want to say "I got a die from Ludo" (Sorry no ribbon for that this year.)
       
      Come find me at the con. I'm pretty easy to find, 6'2" with a black bowler hat. If I'm not in class or playing CAV I'm at the table with Loim and all his basing moss.

      So... I've finally gotten started on the ReaperCon theme entry for 2015. This is where we are and well... It's a mess. LOL! I've got quite a bit of work to do, not including painting. This project is largely experimental and we'll have to see where it goes.... Hmmm....
