PaizoCon 2019!

Recommended Posts

It worked flawlessly, nobody suspected a thing. :blues:

 

Managed to get some comparison pics of (most) of the paints today. 

 

Purples!

(most of the) Blues!

I forgot Marid blue in the previous pic, so here it is with some of the other blues:

Here's one for Grindylow blue, with Tian Xia jade for comparison; Grindylow blue is a turquoise-y blue green:

Greens!

Pinks/Peach/Red!

Mana Waste gray is very close to the discontinued Grel Flesh color (I didn't notice it was turned around until just now, sorry), which makes me super happy cuz I use it all the time! It's a bit less saturated and cooler.

Brilliant green is just about a dead ringer for Christmas wreath. It has a bit more blue in it, but it's surpisingly close:

Comments like this are very helpful, since your eye will be even more reliable than the camera (which is generally more reliable than swatches).

 

With that said, some of the paints that were provided for this event are not actually new Pathfinder colors (you can tell by the numbers). And Brilliant Green (9227) is just a normal MSP that has been around for awhile. Since I don't have that particular paint, the information is useful, but I thought I would mention it.

Well, they all have the Pathfinder label on them (I can take a picture when I get down there later). What that means I don't know. I will be able to compare the numbers/bottles when I get home. 

 

Huzzah!

Did they have the Pathfinder metallics there too? 

 

Also, that area looks like a lot of fun...

Yep. Oneboot posted pics of all the bottles earlier in the thread.

 

She’ll paint out some sample swatches of the metallics for you later on.

 

Also yep to the fun. ::D:

 

 

Edit: Turns not all the bottles we thought were Paizo paint are actually Paizo paint.

(reading labels is hard) :blush:

Here's the 3 metallics:

 

From left to right: Polished Silver, Brevoy Copper, New Gold, Polished Silver again lol, with a strip each of Solid white and Solid black underneath for comparison.

And tilted to show off the shiny:

Any other comparison pics will have to wait until I get home (volunteers get to keep the used paint bottles). 

 

Aaaand when I went to snap a pic of the front of the bottles, I discovered that yes some of them are just regular MSP or BONES paints, and now I feel silly. The Brevoy copper is the only new Pathfinder metallic we have here, and it's SUPER pretty!

What else is going on at the con? Can you share pics? 

Not much going on that’s very photogenic.

Lots of people in different rooms sitting at a table gaming.

Took pics of a couple of rooms.

Its lunchtime right now so not very busy.

The second pic is the vendor area.

In my defense, I was very tired Thursday when we were setting up, and just assumed that all the boxes of paint were new colors lol. 

 

I also just realized I had 2 bottles of the same Andoran blue in one of my pics. I'm still not sure how that happened. :blink:

 

Huzzah!

Some highlights so far, in no particular order and mostly lacking in context:

 

*This summary from my We Be Goblins! game on Friday (I will translate my handwriting in a later post, I was writing in a hurry):

20190524_115106.thumb.jpg.b47206988adae1671fb18c6cf7155b5c.jpg

*OneBoot rolls a 1 on her "Read Paint labels" check

*General agreement that pretty new metallic is pretty

*Cosmo fails to horribly muder people with clowns; OneBoot is disappointed

*Serious discussion about putting pants on an elephant 

*ReaperBryan was the crazy magnet 

*Everything is Ron's fault. Yes, even that

*OneBoot gets rubber-chickened 

*Much serious discussion about washes and mixing paints 

*Exclamations of amazement over the blackest rooster that ever blacked

*Sylverthorne paints adorably awesome chibis

*Swapping of multiple pretty business cards

*Darsc brings Bones 4 minis and everyone agrees they are pretty awesome

*We all covet Tripleh's super sweet light

*Sylverthorne has the bestest paint travel rack thingy of awesome

*Baba Yaga's hut draws lots of attention

*Who made this sign wrong, and are we allowed to fix it? 

*We r prefeshinulz! 

*OneBoot is corrupting today's youth with shiny paints

*Paizo yells RELEASE THE SPOILERS (figuratively but also kind of literally) 

*Elephant clown is gloriously terrifying

 

I'll think of some more later, getting sleepy now. 

 

Huzzah!

No defence needed. All of us were handling those bottles every day and none of us noticed until it was pointed out. ^_^

You forgot one.

*A hard working OneBoot is a tired OneBoot.

 

Get your rest purple one.

OneBoots metallic Mal’Drakar drew a lot of attention from the paint and take attendees.

Lots of ooo’ing and awe’ing over the paintwork.

 

And that’s it. Another Reaper paint and take done and put away.

 

Post con letdown already begun now I’m home.
