[MERGED] PAX Unplugged

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

 

I see that Reaper Miniatures is on the exhibitors list for PAX Unplugged (November 17-19 in Philadelphia). I have couple questions as to what we can expect to see there:

1. Will you be running any painting classes? From the comments I see on this forum they seemed to be great successes at Reapercon and I was hoping to be able to participate in one if possible.

2. Is there any chance some of the large figures from Bones 3 that have currently unsolved packaging issues (Goremaw, Froghemoth) could be made available at the convention? (I'm dying for a Goremaw)

 

I'm looking forward to seeing you guys there!

I'd like to expand upon the answers above, if I may.

 

We will not have courses, because we will have none of our usual artists there to teach, bringing only a handful of employees. It is not our custom to teach courses at shows, and for at least the foreseeable future, this is unlikely to change.

 

We will be very unlikely to have those models for sale, mostly because if we cannot release them because they have no viable shelf-friendly packaging, how can we ourselves stock and display them with no viable shelf-friendly packaging? It is a conundrum.

Thanks for the answers Ladystorm and Reaperbryan!

 

As for how to sell them without standard packaging, I know I'd be more than happy to get all the pieces of Goremaw in a gallon size Ziploc bag (or 2 gallon, not quite sure if he'd fit in a 1, he looks huge).

 

I'm not sure how your area will be set up, but if you could glue one together (and maybe paint it) to serve as a display piece on a shelf behind the register and had a Ziploc bag next to it with the piece parts in it to display what you're actually buying I'm sure they'd sell. Keep the rest of the stock in a rubbermaid bin and call it a day :)

Thanks for the suggestions.

We'll see what works for us, however due to space, it is unlikely we will have any unpackaged items.

do you anticipate having the November releases on hand?

Since the crates ship out next week, if they are ready, they would be included.

It is unlikely they will be ready before crates ship.

Well, if you can toss one Ziploc bagged Goremaw in those crates before they go I can guarantee you'd sell 100% of your PAX Unplugged Goremaw stock. :poke:::D:

It's a little less than two weeks until the show starts, are any of the rest of you planning to go?

 

I'll be arriving part way through friday, and staying until Sunday afternoon.

Reaper will have a booth and a paint and take.  I can make some guesses of who might be there, but they’d just be guesses.

I'll be an exhibitor with the 'Royal N Games' booth. I did the illustrations for their game Deathbot Derby, so I'll be helping out with demos and selling some art prints. 

 

Going to try and wander the show floor a bit too, as it's my first time at a gaming convention.

      I attended PAX Aus this weekend on the Saturday and Sunday and stopped by the Reaper Paint and Take area on both days! I was excited since I didn't get to spend any time there last year.
       
      Saturday I entered the speed painting competition, we were given an hour to paint the Townsfolk Mom and Kids. It was such a fun challenge! I won! 

      I won an amazing little medal! Eeee! I was so flattered.
       
      The next day I also entered the 'paint and take' competition, which was to sit down and paint a miniature on the day. I spent two hours painting upthis Bones Terezinya figure:

       

      And I won another trophy! I had so much fun, and everyone working hard at the Paint and Take area did such an amazing job. It was an amazing weekend. I don't often get to paint around other people or be exposed to so much Reaper-y goodness! One day I will make it to Reaper Con, one daaaay!

      So I see PAX just added a new show in Philadelphia in November. Will Reaper be attending this one? I vaguely remember you attending some of them, but I wasn't sure if you do all of them.

      Hola Reaperpeeps,
       
      Will you have the new Bones HD paints at PAX? And if so, are they available as a bundle, or will they be loose bottles only?
       
      It sounds like you'll be in the same space near the escalator as the last couple years, yes? I look forward to stopping by.

      Just like the title says - PAX South is only 3 weeks away! Jan 29th-31st in San Antonio, Texas.
       
      Is anyone from the forums going? PAX cons are usually talked about for their video gaming parts, but the tabletop part is getting more notice nowadays.

      Reaper (Ladystorm and ReaperBryan) will be hosting their Paint & Take and store at next weeks (Aug 27-31) PAX Prime in Seattle and I was wondering if any other Forumites would be at the con.
