My husband and I run the Paint and Take table at a local convention, Recruits. It's held at the high school, admission is free for all area students, games are child friendly, etc. We get really good turnout. The paint table is free for kids of all ages, even grownup kids, and it is funded entirely with donations. All of the figures, all of the paint, water cups, brushes, etc come from the wonderful community we have here, from the internet, and from vendors. It's typical for me to arrive early Saturday to set up and find one or more anonymous boxes of figures or paint waiting. A couple of years ago at Reapercon folks helped fill a box with mouslings for me to give away. I could not do this without the support I get from the painting and gaming community.
So here is this year's class:
(BTW, if you got stuff in your Bones4 core that you do not want, find me at next year's Reapercon, I will see it goes to a good cause)
This is our table about ten minutes after setting up. Busy the entire day.
Some of the fine works of art created by the kids who participated. They look forward to this all year.
Got to pick up more baby dragons next year. I only had the one and it resulted in crying. :(
So finally got around to taking my pictures of my minis from Gencon. I took a bronze for Rumscratch.
I was fairly happy with his little beach there, even if the water doesn't show well on camera.
My elf sailor was also entered, but not judged, since they only judge one of your entries per catagory.
He doesn't look very friendly. He was supposed to though.
I did a Wyrd miniatures speed paint of the Immolated Rhino.
I didn't know anything about this guy other than it was a rhino. Didn't even know the name until just now, so I made it pink. I made it very very pink.
wish I could have come up with something to do with the cracks in his skin. I just kind of ignored them.
this guy is a deep cuts guard. I did him up in a color theory class.
I don't think he turned out too bad considering the size of the brush I used on him.
I'll probably touch him up eventually.
Questions, comments, concerns?
I also took a miniature photography class and as side effect, learned what a few of the icons on my phones camera do.

So, It is that time of year again! When the winds of flatulence waft the delecate aromas of nerdfunk into ones nostrils! The Convention season is here! And I won't be going to one! At least not a big one. So no GenCon for me :( But I'm still supporting the DDM Guild events there! So, I'm sharing my WiP pictures here.
The "Thundercorn" as I am calling it, is nearly done. just a bit of touch ups and the base to go.
The Pit Fiend just has the base coats on at this time.
The White Wyrmling has the second layer of shading started.
This is a Scaladar. I think it is supposed to be a robot scorpion that shoots lightning. I have a rather ambitious plan for it though. It has a bunch of cracks in its armor and joints. I'm painting those cracks to look like it has bright crackling lightning inside it! Then I plan to paint the armor a bronze or brass.

For the last three years, I've gotten to attend Origins in Ohio, and have really loved doing the Reaper Speedpaint (and even won last year). I was hoping to go and participate in the Speedpaint again this year, but I was going through the Origins 2019 event schedule and didn't see a single entry from Reaper. Is Reaper not going to be at Origins this year, or at least not hosting any events?
