So... who's ready for ReaperCon 2019?

Recommended Posts

Just about had a heart attack yesterday. I dropped my Reaper painters entry and knocked it into the edge of the shelves under my desk. Somehow it survived undamaged, at least not obviously damaged. I gave it a look over immediately and then again later. May look it over a few more times before I convince myself its ok.

 

I spent all day (5am-10pm) trying to finish as much as I can. Got all of the actual painting done, except for some base work on my Bombshell entry. I had hoped to have most of the plants on the bases but I got only a tiny bit done in my last hour before bed. So tonight is attaching the Mouslings to their base, finishing up the plant work, and blackening the plinths. Should be able to do it barring any unforeseeable issues. I need to finish tonight so the black paint has enough time to set so the blu-tac doesn't pull it off. Tomorrow will be focused on packing.

I've got util Thursday to finish up the base for my entry. I'm not sweating about it though. If I don't get it finished in time to enter I'm not going to be upset.

I have my basing box all ready to go per request, and I have to decide if I'm bringing any paints/minis to work on at the Con. 

Other than that I just have to finalize hotel, looks like I'm going to be staying at the Holiday Inn up the road, and buy my tickets for the Con.

I may bring some dice and my books in case anyone wants to run an impromptu game of LL. I've got a good little pregen that works great for a one shot.

Well, I'll probably be running other nights too. Find me, and I'll make sure you get your old school fix!

@Crowley I won't be there until Friday, but I'll definitely look you up. I also have a copy of the Rules Cyclopedia. I'll roll up a Lvl 5 toon and bring with just in case :).

Started setting things aside for packing.  I have 5 new con shirts.  Darn Izzy for being so talented.  Got my ribbons.  I suppose I should open the package and make sure they are good.  Got my Kraken Dice KS so that should be all I need for dice for the con.

 

Not sure what board/card games to bring.  Someone Has Died is a definite.  I have Underlings and Unwings which combines dragons and color theory.

Underlings and underwings sounds interesting, Jessie will of course be bringing all of her unstable unicorns, she just got a brand new casting case for them all lol.

 

As for being prepared everything is of course last minute... I've got most of my paints packed sculpting tools and basting materials for the meetup. Clothes will be packed tomorrow. Trying to decide whether to pack alot of minis or paint what I get there. Ive got a ton of skeletons to do.

Well, you could enter the box in Open, I suppose.

Well there is this........

If I was going, today would be the games packing. I generally run about 5 or 6 rpg games. Minis for said games would be packed or would at least be finished today. Tomorrow would be my day to head over to Boise for the night. I miss it already but maybe a year break will do me good. 13 years in a row!

WHOOOOO!!!!  My entry is DONE!  And it is one of my best efforts yet.  I am quite pleased with it; we'll see what the judges think.

 

Car is clean now and I am packing.

 

See you in 2 days!

I am glad to see that.  I know what the judges will think of mine but that's not stopping me ::D:

 

I have to pack down all my Hobby stuff today.  Just got word that I don't have to present one of my bigger projects until later in the year so more time for me!

hardest part for me right now is deciding which minis to put in the suitcase, and which minis to put in my carry on bag where they have less chance of breaking. I kind of want my diorama in my bag, but i'm also worried about the thin raptor tails and they might get jostled even MORE in my carry on than in the suitcase nestled among my clothes

Arrrrgh!  Got about an hour away and had to turn back. Didn’t forget anything, wife wanted me to leave out after tonight’s scout meeting. They forgot I wasn’t going to be there tonight. Gonna be leaving stupid early in the morning. Debating on driving straight through, or take the scenic route and arrive Wednesday in the late afternoon.
