Not only is the at least one Sophie in there, but... There's a Grim Squeaker, also!

That is the most adorable 'Death' ever cast.

And that someone could do such a heinous act...

I have the bestest friends. I wouldn't know them without Reaper. I love this place. ^_^:wub:
 

 

 

Can't see the poster....

 

For those wondering...

after the con is over, Reaper folks start breaking down all the stuff, putting away tables, chairs and taking down things hung on the walls, etc...



Not only the awesome folks that work for Reaper, but the artists and sculptors as well...

Some of the forumites that can't quite curb their addiction help too!!!

I asked if the faction posters needed to come off the windows, was told yes, I asked if they were to be thrown out, was told yes......

My roommate at con and accomplice would have made the Flash look slow as we ran to take them down and throw them out into the shuttle to the hotel.....

How I got the poster home...

 

Had to take my laptop home. One hand is in use due to my cane. Plus purse, lunchbag (it's on the other side of the poster on top of my laptop), and the added swag bag.

 

It was fun scanning my card and going through the automatic revolving doors.

I don't have pictures of the full haul as half had to be mailed back home but the list goes as this between the Mr and I:

 

Two VIP and attending Swag Bags

1 extra dragon bust

1 february reaper anniversary model

1 september reaper anniversary model

1 July?? reaper anniversary model

2 All Hallows Eve models

2 Scale 75 paint sets (browns/leather and Inktensity)

2 Arena Rex models: Medusa and Lupa

4 busts from Black Heart 

2 Busts from Hanger 18

4 Chibi models

 Entire Bones 3 Core set + Expansions and Graveyard

Classroom paint set

Base boss bases large rounds

2 Reaper kolinsky brushes

Handful of reaper paints from the store

 

And some new melt. I turned in around 32oz but only left with 9. I need to plan the graveyard better. I missed out on important pieces. :'( 

 

When I got home I had a package waiting on me from Collapse Industries with 4 busts in it and the Kingdom Death expansion.

Digging through the melt table is fun, therapeutic, and can always turn up a few surprises. During Reapercon, a melt table is available for con-goers to drop off unwanted metal. This year, one could purchase metal at $1.00 per ounce from the table or $6.00 per ounce from the factory. It was somewhat bare this year and with several of us repeating visitors to the table, new items disappeared quickly. I turned in 13 pounds, a majority of the weight consisted of dragons.

 

During the first few minutes at the table, I was informed that Reaper initially seeded the table. Some of those figures currently exist as Bones figures from Kickstarter 3. How I wish I grabbed more of them. The first row contains some of those seeded miniatures:

Here are some more whole figures (the three con figures has been claimed).

Last of the whole figures, some mouslings included.

Then there were miniatures with heads, limbs, weapons, or other items removed. But, since I'm going to be learning how to use green stuff to convert, fix, or modify figures. I figure these would be the best ones to use.

Good haul, @pcktlnt!!

 

And I see you were my main competitor for all the loose bits (weapons, shields, and such).

Got a set of Vallejo Transparent paints today...  

A set of 'low noise, high efficiency' rotors for the DJI Mavic Pro...

 

And a package from Reaper.

It was ordered on Oct 2, and aarrived in Norway on the 8. Then it went through customs...  With the last registration on the 9th.

Today I found a 'reminder' note from the local post office waiting in my postbox... about a package that had arrived a week ago, and which would be returned in a week if I didnt come pick it up. 

The effing morons at the posts customs office had given the package a new tracking code, something they're not supposed to do, and of course not alerted anyone about it, least of all me. Tomorrow, I intend to raise H! 

 

Anyway, the package contained some paints, including the Violet Red I need for the Rainbow Dragon challenge... 

Loads of minis, (Mostly Warlord Nefsokar), 2 Lysette, a bottle of Creastcancer Awareness Pink, a Sample paint(some sort of brown?), and a ghoulie bag...  

The mini was a poor, lonely Skeletal swordsman which will be happy to join my other Skeletal Swordsmen... 

There's the paints(Gory Red and Maggot White, which I already have) and candy...

Two packages on the way, ordered a day apart. One wound up on a trip through Kansas but the second got sent to Memphis. Estimated arrivals are Thursday and Friday respectively, but something tells me the second one will arrive first. Hopefully tomorrow!

 

Short version: UPS is weird.

Went to the FL(ish)GS today. Was looking for an Ellen Stone and/or an Eyebeast. They had neither that I could find. They might have had an Eyebeast but it would have been at the very top of the rack which would have required a ladder to get to and I didn't feel like bugging the staff today. I did, instead, pick up a bottle of MSP Brilliant Blue and MSP Cyan Blue. Mostly because I accidentally marked one of them on my poster as having it when I didn't and then I figured I'd get the other one to fill out the triad. Then we came home and my ReaperCon Sophie was in the mailbox. So aside from this awful headache it's been a pretty good day.
