Alright, with two months to go until ReaperCon, I need to get cracking on my entries. I currently have two maybe four entries for Painters, one for Open, and two for Diorama.

 

My definite Painters entries are:

Reaper 14131: Elsabeth, Necropolis Captain in purples and blues prancing through a graveyard.

Dark Sword DSM7442 Wood Elf Gooddess-Avatar Form in green among forest ruins (started in my previous WIP)

 

My maybe Painters entries are:

Kabuki's The Hunter in black and red on a simple base

Reaper 03730: Jahenna, Female Vampire, back and white study. This is a commission for a friend and I may bring it with me if I finish in time

 

My Open entry is:

Hasslefree HFX004 Gen. I will need to link her actual pictures as she is nude. I am going to be converting her into a blue fairy. I have removed her horns and will be adding fairy wings.

 

My Diorama entries are:

"The Toad Bridge" which will feature some of Dark Sword Anthropomorphics facing off against each other.

"The Hunt" featuring two Mouslings and a spider, but who is the hunter and who is the prey?

 

I have ambitious plans but unlike last year, I am not going to force myself to finish everything. I will work on what I feel like working on and if I get it done, it goes. I won't stress about trying to get everything done as I have a few finished pieces already that I can easily bring.

 

So now onto the pictures. First up is a group shot of all the models except for Gen, followed by a group shot of their bases. I have the bases on my Tablewar tray to make sure everthing fits. I did have to rethink the base for "The Toad Bridge" as the original took up half of the tray.

OOOH, COOL STUFF! It looks like you have some WONDERFUL miniatures along with the beginnings of some equally wonderful bases AND a good dollop of motivation. There is nothing quite as motivating as a deadline; at least nothing that doesn't carry a whip.

Thanks guys! Hopefully I can get them all done in time. I had a schedule and game plan for getting everything done but that got thrown out the window fairly quickly due to stuff over the last couple of months.

Ahh, "Stuff."

Fouler-upper of the best laid plans.

 

Good luck. That's a heaping plate of to-do.

We'll all be cheering you on.

It's been a while since I started this but I have been a busy bee. I have done a little here and a little there, mainly prep and base work so here we go.

 

First up the "The Toad Bridge" crew. There is a mouse ranger, rabbit mage, and cat knight facing off against a horned toad assassin, all are from Dark Sword. Except for a little gap filling, they are ready for primer.

Next are the Mouslings and spider for the "The Hunt". They are all ready for primer.

Lastly are the bases for my fairy and vampire. The fairy's is the one in the left and the vampire is the one on the right. Can't have a fairy in a graveyard.

I have trees! And a bridge. Bridges are evil, or at least this one is. The trees are not 100% done yet, I need to do at least one more layer of the putty. Once that is done, everything will be ready for primer and then I can finally get to painting.

      So I've been poking at this diorama idea for a couple of years, and it's morphed a bit since I first started it, but I'm thinking that I'm nearing the final composition. But... I'm beginning to second guess myself. 
       
      So, do you think this tells a good/clear story? 
      Should I remove the adventurers from their bases, or paint the bases to match the floor? 
       
      Any and all thoughts welcome!

      So I will be running the Hobby Hijinx corner at ReaperCon again this year. If you are not familiar with the corner, it is where Reaper offers free 1-2 hour paint and take events. We have the classic Paint 'N Take area as always, as well as the Sophie Says, traditional Speedpaints and the new Paint by Die Roll and Bones Mashup. 
       
      I will be updating this post as details are firmed up.
       
      If anyone has any ideas for the current events or new events, please post them here. 
       
      If you would like to volunteer to help in the Hobby Hijinx corner, please send me a PM with the days and times you would like to help and if you would like to be a helper or coordinator. Coordinators will be responsible for running individual events (all the supplies will be there) Helpers will assist coordinators. I will be the default coordinator for any event that doesn't have a volunteer

      Sophie Says
      A fun cross of Simon Says and Speed Painting. Don’t let the time element scare you, this is about being silly and having fun while painting a mini. All supplies and the mini will be provided. Once the timer starts, participants will have 45 minutes to paint the mini to the best of their abilities. Sophie, (or one of her minions) will intermittently apply challenges to the painters, such as painting while standing on one leg, painting polka dots somewhere on the mini, etc. Sophie understands that not everyone will be able to perform all of the challenges and encourages participants to participate as much as they feel comfortable. Every participant will receive a certificate declaring how awesome and silly they are. This is a kid friendly activity, but we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult. Sophie Says After Dark
      This is slightly more adult themed version of Sophie Says, a fun cross of Simon Says and Speed Painting. Don’t let the time element scare you, this is about being silly and having fun while painting a mini. All supplies and the mini will be provided. Once the timer starts, participants will have 45 minutes to paint the mini to the best of their abilities. Sophie, (or one of her minions) will intermittently apply challenges to the painters, such as painting while standing on one leg, painting polka dots somewhere on the mini, etc. Sophie understands that not everyone will be able to perform all of the challenges and encourages participants to participate as much as they feel comfortable. THIS IS A PG-13 VERSION. ADULT BEVERAGES WILL BE ALLOWED AT THE TABLES AND THINGS WILL BE MAY BE MORE AWKWARD. Speed Paint
      All supplies and the mini will be provided. Participants are allowed to bring their own brush if they wish. Once the timer starts, participants will have 45 minutes to paint the mini to the best of their abilities. Once the time is up all painting must cease. All entries will be judged by specially selected stunt judge. Prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. All participants will receive a certificate to attest to grit and determination. This is a kid friendly activity, but we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult. Paint by Die Roll
      This is a group skill building event rather than a competition. Step outside your comfort zone and paint with color combinations. All supplies and the mini will be provided. Participants are allowed to bring their own brush and/or palate if they wish. All participants will receive the same mini, the group will then roll a d20 to determine which portions of the mini will be what color. Example: Last year there an ogre chieftain with Palomino gold skin, purple cloth, mint green metal, and pale lichen leather. Black, White, and Brown will be provided for shading and highlighting purposes only. Everyone will receive a certificate attesting to their willingness to try new things. This is a kid friendly activity, but we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult. Quick Conversion
      Let your creativity flow as you cut, glue, and pin your own unique mini. Use a collection of Reaper minis and pieces to create something new. Will you come up with a goblin headed rogue, or a beholder mermaid? It’s up to you. This activity will involve cutting implements and super clue so we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult. Ed Sculpts are Best Sculpts
      When Reaper was a young company and sculptors could get first hand references for their dinosaur sculpts, now president of Reaper Miniatures, Ed Pugh, contributed to the product line by sculpting many of the skeletons. Come raise the dead and socialize with your fellow necroma.....painters. This is a kid friendly activity, but we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult.

      Date: Sunday, Sep 1st
      Time: 6:30 PM
      Location: Houlihans (on-site restaurant connected to the hotel) 
      Dinner menu:   https://www.houlihans.com/eats-and-drinks/menu/dinner/denton
      Gluten-sensitive options (not guaranteed gluten-free):   https://www.houlihans.com/eats-and-drinks/menu/gluten-free/denton
      Vegetarian options:   https://www.houlihans.com/eats-and-drinks/menu/vegetarian/denton
       
      Seating is INDOORS. 
       
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
       
       
       
      It occurred to me out of the blue today that I've completely forgotten to call Houlihans (the on-site hotel restaurant) to see if seating for 30-40 people could be reserved on Sunday. 
       
      I did this last year, and from all reports this arrangement was well-received and convenient for everyone. 
       
      If there are no strong objections, I plan to call tomorrow (Monday) to see if such can be arranged again. I just hope it's still possible, it's getting a bit close...
       
      Last year I made the reservation for 6:30pm. For those that went last year, was 6:30pm a good time, or would earlier have been better? My thinking last year was that it would give some time after the auction for people to do some packing first (also gives a buffer in case the auction runs super long). 
       
      Looking forward to seeing y'all SOON!
       
      Huzzah!

      While @Pegazus's Forumite bingo helps, I am TERRIBLE about remembering names. I will totally remember your face and what we did three years ago but for the life of me I can't even remember the first letter of your name. I figured I'd make a cheat sheet where people could share a photo and name so people can have a refresher before the con. 
       

       
      Prefered name: Ludo
      Pronoun of Choice: He, It, Dude
      Huggability: Absolutely

      Here is the Tiefling Sorcerer I just started working on for my next D&D campaign. My lovely wife is a writer and helped me with the backstory. Take a gander at the backstory and let me know what you think if you'd like... Otherwise, just take a look at the figure and follow along.  I've been going back and forth with whether or not I should cut his horns off to fit the backstory or not.
