Reapercon 2017 home safe thread


Recommended Posts

@arouark and I stayed an extra day and went to the Dallas zoo and then drove home afterwards. It was a pleasant 4 hour drive. We're home safe and sound. Now she needs to start her D20 Rainbow challenge post.

 

I didn't get to meet many people but that is on me more than anything else.

 

I did match a face with @pcktlnt, @Dilvish the Deliverer, @knarthex, @Mr Melons, @MissMelons.

 

I met other people but only have about 8k of free memory... :)

 

Looking forward to next year.

That's a good way to do it! A couple years ago we did that, only we visited the botanical gardens. It was really cool and the extra day gave us the chance to do the forum dinner and stuff.

Nope, back to the grind tomorrow, and tonight my bride doesn't get home till probably 1am. Flight got delayed by almost 2 hours... ::(:

 

And to survive the experience! (So far... What's the average incubation period, btw?)

So happy to be home!

 

Those are some really happy doggies. 

 

Kitties are upset that we are going going straight to bed.

home safe....

 

on hangouts with Guindy, Buglips, Crowley, Pcktlnt, Reaperbryan,

 

I'm jelly. 

 

We had a 13.5 hour (Google estimates 12.5) drive because of Arkansas. (Dallas rush hour traffic didn't help) 

 

the time change put us at rolling into Greyhoards place at 10:30 EDT. Then half an hour back to our place.

Made it home. Finally.

FAR too much time in the airport (Mr. Thorne buggered up and put us on a late flight when he didn't need to, and the earlier flight  we were hoping to get transferred to was packed), and a vaguely amusing security check (... so, apparently, they had never seen Andi's cookies before..? I don't know..), a sort of three-hour catnap, a slightly bouncy landing (Mr. Airplane Pilot.. the plane? It is not a kitty toy....) and entirely too much walking and driving later.... We made it!

 

The Thorne Homestead appears to have survived our absence. The cats are not thrilled. But! HOME.

 

Unpacking tomorrow. Glad I got some pictures of the haul; I will /know/ if anything's missing.... suspect my haul of metal and plastic has also been rifled; we'll see if the safety pin survived....

      You'll take my life, but I'll take yours too
      You'll fire your musket, but I'll run you through
      So when you're waiting for the next attack
      You'd better stand, there's no turning back
       

       
      I'm going to be building/converting/sculpting my own copy of Eddie from this artwork. I'm just going to do the central figure, not the battlefield around him.
       
      For those who don't know, the song 'The Trooper' is based on the Charge of the Light Brigade, an action during the Battle of Balaclava during the Crimean War.
       
      So, before I get started, a question:
       
      The artist who did this piece (Derek Riggs) applied a little creative license to the flag that Eddie is carrying. It is not historically accurate to the best of my knowledge and research. If you know differently, please enlighten me.
       
      When I get to that point, do I try to recreate the flag as seen in the artwork, or go with something a little more accurate? Or is that a detail that most people will not notice?

      Here's 2 beetle swarms that I knocked out pretty quick this weekend. 
       
      One basic brown, and the other with a more metallic look to them.
       
      Let me know what you think.

      I finished Mason Thornwarden a little earlier today. He's painted up to a (hopefully) decent tabletop standard. I've been reading a lot about Rangers of Shadowdeep on various blogs all over the internet; I can neither confirm nor deny that is what may have led to his selection for the paintbrush.
       
      Let me know what you think of him, please.

      I just finished painting this figure yesterday. It's from the old Grenadier boxed set 'Fighting Men' #2005. Not really a whole lot to say about him, I spent about 3 hours painting him to a good tabletop level. I got a little burned out on painting for a while, feeling like I had to paint everything to a competition level. Well, sometimes it's just fun to slap some paint on a figure in a few hours just to take your mind off of other things. I had just forgotten that somewhere along the way.
       
      Anyhow, here he is, let me know what you think.

      I finally managed to climb back on the painting horse. I painted this vampire to my usual tabletop standard. He'll be the leader for a Mordheim/Frostgrave/random skirmish game warband.
