So who is excited about ReaperCon 2016?


Recommended Posts

Because we wanted conversion classes but they are all on Thursday =P we can't get here Thursday. With the price of classes we only get ones that we have a hard time doing ourselves (with enough patience I can teach myself painting tricks), but bones conversions classes give a huge variety of minis to go to town on that we would have to spend a fair amount of money to replicafe at home. Plus, he actually enjoys comversion to Bones

 

But unless one crops up in the TBA slot, we won't get them this year since they are all on the same day

I'm hoping they offer another on Friday or Saturday as well. Both slots conflicted with other classes that were higher priority.

I'm exploring offering my Bones Conversion class in one of the remaining TBD slots but nothing is concrete yet.

I haven't been able to participate much on the forums lately. I'm wondering if there was an evening grouping? At the hotel later year, we had gaming, painting, and chatter groups. Just seeing where things will be.

I think that once all of the official games are setup, people will start posting the unofficial stuff (like possibly some 5E games by yours truely). Also we seem to be split between two hotels this year. And as the .com is not at the hotel, I don't know what kind of common area space is available.

Last year with the con at the hotel we could use the tables outside the hall. This year the con is at an event center that gets locked up at 11pm. So I'm guessing that there'll be no available tables at the hotels to game at and people will have to do this on the floors or in their rooms. I'm not planning on running late night games because I don't think there'll be a good comfortable accessible spot for doing so.

Just a thought, but maybe one of the hotels would rent out one of the small conference rooms for late night activities? I'm thinking of the classrooms from last year at the HGI, since I've no idea what the other hotel has.

No idea. I'm at the Marriott this year tho so that's another reason I'm not going to run any games.

    • By Lord of the Dish Pit
      In accordance with the title of May's hobby goal section, and getting a bit bored with using the same colors over and over, I decided to open up the Box of Waiting and found these....

      (back left corner) 2 Wizkids Blink Hounds
      (back to us as NSFW) Vampire with Victim
      (big guy in the back) Dungeon Saga Zombie Ogre Wizard
      (in front of Zombie Ogre) Dungeon Saga Necromancer
      (right of Zombie Ogre) 2 Wizkids Ghouls
      (right of Ghouls) Female Wraith from Graveyard Expansion
      (next to Necromancer) Undead Wolf from Graveyard Expansion
      (next to Wolf) Female Mad Scientist
      (next to Mad Scientist) Stone
      (next to Stone) Reaper WW2 Zombie German
      (last on right) Orc from Learn to Paint kit
      (front rank) various Mousings from the Tavern Set and Thankgiving and Christmas Mouslings.
      There's more, but this is everything that has had more than priming applied. 

      First up was the Female Mad Scientist, who was one of the first minis I bought when I got back into the hobby. I started on her not long before I left Austin, and while I was happy with how most of her came out, I got a bit lost in what to do with her base. Her weapon and smiting glove were also unfinished. There's a touch up on her face from where she got chipped in transit, but the patch doesn't seem to show in pictures. (yay!)

      I got her weapons finished, a bit of purple on her hat ribbon, and the beginings of her base.

      The wraith, wolf, and ghouls received a coat of black wash over the parts that were already gray, and the wraith and wolf got further applications of Storm Gray. The skin on the ghouls was a base of Vampire Skin washed with Rainy Gray. Now that I have the rest of the triad, I can start getting them highlighted.

      Like last year, this thread is to find roommates and transit. Being the con isn't at the hotel rides may be more important.

      My situation: Room full at 4 Wednesday through Monday.
      Rides unknown as flights not booked, but looking at noonish arrival Wednesday, into dfw, out if dfw Sunday around 7, maybe Monday if I can get the time off then. Either way I'll need help with transit if possible.

      On your marks...get set...

      With the announcement of the HGI block being filled up for RCon this year, thought I'd I ask where everyone will be staying for the con this year. Helps with getting together afterwards or even during the Con.
       
      I'll be staying at Hilton Garden Inn (HGI) this year.

      Welcome to the House Procrastius Common Room.
       
       

      House Procrastius
      "Ego probabiliter ad cras"
       
       
      Yeah, I know the other Houses got their rooms up before us.  Sorry, it took me awhile to get to it.  But you know, it still got done.  Got a little busy with stuff.  Anyway, have at it.  When you get a chance.  If you can't, it'll keep.
       
      As a wise old teacher once said to me:
       
      “Never put off till tomorrow what may be done day after tomorrow just as well.â€
      - Mark Twain
       
      ​Now, I think the teacher was trying to get me to turn my work in on time, but honestly, I loved Mark Twain, and it sort of had the opposite effect.
