[SPLIT] RC2017 Rides thread

I booked tickets last night, so I guess my husband and I are committed to coming!  We're renting a car, arriving at DFW airport around 6pm on Thursday.  Our flight leaves at 7pm on Sunday, so we will be aiming to arrive at car-rental return around 4:30.  We're traveling with our infant son but could provide a ride to at least one other person (two if traveling light, luggage space may be an issue with the stroller).  We'll probably be going back and forth to the hotel multiple times per day to accommodate baby naps as well.  Message me if you might need a ride to/from the airport at those times!

It looks like I might be driving to the Con. Anyone want to get Louisville and carpool with me on the way down? 

 

Or anyone in the Southeast US want to meet up in a location (Say Knoxville for instance) and car pool over to Dallas? 

 

I like to drive, and 12 hours is just starting to be a long drive for me. 

 

Let ent me know if this interests anyone. I have a new and comfy Cmax.

I could offer the same, but that would really only help anyone on I-20 between Tyler and Dallas... though, I can go through Bugscuffle, Arp, La Poyner or any of 100 other small towns in East Texas if that helps (meaning I-20 or 175).  I guess if someone wanted to go the long way from Houston we could meet as well... and as soon as I know when Ub3r is landing, I can backtrack times and work it out...

Yeah, pretty much.  I wouldn't call it a town exactly.  More like a crossing that has a hotel out in the middle of some scary woods... 

 

I've seen that in movies. It never turns out good.......::):

So, my wife and i will be arriving at DFW at approximately 11:30 am on the 18th.

I'd be interested in bumming rides from someone and/or meeting up with some other folks to split a shuttle ride.

 

 

ETA: Departure is 11 am on Monday the 23rd.

What are peoples experiences with renting a car and the toll roads?  We're looking at Hertz and they have a $4 a day charge plus the toll cost...

 

Went with Avis the first year since the mall behind the hotel had a little kiosk, so just paid for when I needed it and dropped off the car there. Picked it up there, too. No sidewalks between the two, tho. Avoided all the toll roads, so just added a little time to the commute.

Arriving at Love field, 3pm Wednesday the 18th..

(I think that the 3pm is Central time, unlike last year, when the itinerary said 3, and we landed at 2....

but I think the flight is 3 hours, and I leave at noon, 3 is likely correct...)

I can likely catch a ride Monday with Dilvish....

      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?

      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.
