*Ludo shuffles in followed by a trail of small rocks*

FORUMITES FRIENDS

 

So I will be running the Hobby Hijinx corner at ReaperCon again this year. If you are not familiar with the corner, it is where Reaper offers free 1-2 hour paint and take events. We have the classic Paint 'N Take area as always, as well as the Sophie Says, traditional Speedpaints and the new Paint by Die Roll and Bones Mashup. 

 

I will be updating this post as details are firmed up.

 

If anyone has any ideas for the current events or new events, please post them here. 

 

If you would like to volunteer to help in the hobby corner, I am working on a proper signup sheet etc in the mean time, feel free to post here. Positions include morning setup, evening teardown. Resetting between events. Running individual events ( instructions will be provided) 

In particular, looking for people to oversee the paint and take area. 

 

Reserved for Sophie says ideas.

I could probably help at some point. What all is included in "helping" ?

Good question.

 

Last year when I was helping, as was @OneBoot, it involved running Sophie Says while @Ludo got to go take a class. I also ran one session of Paint N Take... I think. Maybe it was Speed Paint. Anyway, with enough help this year, maybe Ludo can take two classes! Maybe even get in a game should he find the desire!

 

I'll be volunteering for sure again. I'm running out of classes that I've yet to really practice at all on, so I won't be missing out all that much by taking fewer of them.

I could probably help out for a little while.

 

If nothing else, I want to get in on a paint-by-die-roll slot this year.

I wouldn't mind helping this year. I had so much fun doing speed painting and Sophie Says that I'd like to contribute back in some way.

I enjoyed the mini bones mash up last year, I hope that can be arranged again.

 

Don't know my class schedule yet, but I will try to come by and help at some point this year.

A squiggly tentacle  pokes its way skyward and waves tentatively.

Had lots of fun last year at Ludo's little patch of fun and would like to contribute to the festivities this year.

The  mash up was a blast, I'd 110% do that again.

It was like the Bones conversion class that was offered,  but  only 1 hour long and with a limited selection of smaller figures.  I saw a lot of head and weapon swaps done in the session I attended.

It’s basically kitbashing loads of different Bones to try and make the ‘coolest’ figure before time runs out!!

I can help, as long as it doesn't interfere with a class I'm taking.

Allright, I've thought long and hard about this, and helping with the paint and take is something I feel like i could help with if you are still interested in help.

      I sort of fell off the WIP thread because life made this take longer than I had originally intended. The minis are by Bombshell, and I have to say that they were a pleasure to paint. I will be picking up a few more at ReaperCon, for sure.
      The scenery is by Secret Weapon, Shadow's Edge, and Woodland Scenics. The base is from a cheap 3 pack from Michael's. All paint is from Reaper.
      I'll probably end up staining or painting the base, but I haven't yet decided which way to go with it.
      It feels really good to finish something for the MSPOpen. In hindsight, I probably should've started with something smaller, and worked my way up to this, but meh. I'm pretty proud of this.

      To help alleviate the last minute rush order or trying to have them shipped to the hotel, I'm reminding people that personalized badge ribbons are a thing.
       
      Because of forum rules we can't post a link to where to order them but if you post here, a certain @ub3r_n3rd fairy may PM you details.
       
      The standard size that Reaper makes their ribbons is: Personalized Badge Ribbon 1-5/8"H x 3-1/2"W
       
      FAQ
      What are the ribbons for?!
      Reaper gives out ribbons for various tasks like joining a faction, taking a class, spending a LOT of money in the Reaper Booth. Some are known, some are secret.
      Individuals also have their own ribbons made and have their own criteria for earning them. 
      In the past there has been a prize for longest chain (without duplicates) but this is subject to the whims of Reaper.
       
      Can I make my own ribbons?
      Absolutely. Anyone can have their own ribbon. Come up with fun (family appropriate) phrase and a task that you will have the receiver perform (again, family appropriate) then contact a ribbon company to have them printed.
       
      How many ribbons should I bring?
      If this is your first time giving out ribbons, 100 should be plenty. If you are teaching a class, running a game or a vendor, you probably want more as you will be interacting with more people.
       
      Is there a list of all the Ribbons and how to get them?
      Short answer, No.
      Part of the fun is talking to people to learn how they got a particular ribbon. When the con starts, I'll probably update this post with a list of known ribbons. like the ones Reaper gives out or ones individuals want to share. (Please don't share the how to unless you have the OK from the creator) 
       
      Not even one spoiler?
      Ok, if you want to get the "Ludo, Friend" ribbon, you have to bring Ludo a small rock. (Rocks from the hotel decor will not be accepted.) Bonus points will be awarded on how fancy the rock is.

      Hey, all! This year, I'm taking part in as many parts of ReaperCon's MSPOpen that I can while still narrowly holding on to my sanity. The first of these is a small diorama, (my first ever,) for Bombshell Miniatures.
       
      Since this is my first, I've decided to go with a relatively simple story: While venturing along an escarpment, a heavy-armored priestess is waylaid by a spinning, blade wielding half-orc. I began by cutting some foam to build up the earth behind the cliff face, and then used some plaster molds to cast the face and the large rock buried in the ground. Next, I covered everything with Vallejo's White Pumice and Wet Ground pastes, and then added additional stones. Once this was dry, I primed the whole thing in white.
       
      Once the primer was dry, I used a mix of Reaper acrylics and GW washes to paint the base. I didn't go overboard on the dirt, since most of it will be covered by grass and other detritus. For the stone, I made sure to use a healthy mix of greys, greens, oranges, browns, purples. I then lightly dry brushed the stone in sandy tan and again in tan closer to white. Once the paint was dry, I sealed the base in anticipation of the next phase.

      At my recent IPMS show I had the honor (not to mention the absolute joy) of running a Reaper Paint n Take and mini painting demo. For this I picked several Reaper figures and the KDM Twilight Knight. To say the Twilight Knight fell apart early would be an understatement but fortunately I was simultaneously working on Remus Raducan, Blood Wolf and he worked marvelously as reference and inspiration. So here he is in all his NMM glory. Which is rather funny since I haven't tried the technique since Reapercon where I took @Kuro Cleanbrush 's 4 hour NMM class.
