I plan to help with some Sophie Says (of course!) I won't know what my schedule is until after classes have been posted. 

 

Huzzah!

@Ludo, do you have an idea for when you need us to chime in with day/time availability?

 

Waiting on Classes to be opened up. Once everyone is able to sign up then I'll start making the schedule for the hobby corner. Last year we scheduled the events so that people would have time to get to their class even if the did the event right before.

Mrs. Zoxe and I can help, and will have a car - so even if it's making food runs to keep @Ludo and others well fortified.

Mrs. Monster [she prefers Tagalong] and I will also be part of the motoring set so we can help out with local runs. for "stuff".

There is a well set up shopping center, complete with Wally World and grocery stores within 5 minutes drive and a 20-30 minute hoof from the hotel.

Personally, I'd much prefer to make munchie runs in an air conditioned car than to have to go out walking on a Hot August Afternoon in Texas.

I think I'd be up for a shift helping out at the paint n take area. Will have to see what I pick for classes of course, but I was planning to schedule more downtime this year.

Alright, hear back from Reaper, volunteer signup will be on Growtix so that you can make sure you don't accidentally overlap. 

 

From the Classes I would take thread:

Scheduling question for you all:

I try my best to make the Hobby Hijinx Events mesh with Class Schedule. Last year I found that we need at least 15 minutes between events to reset. Should I try to keep events on 1 hour intervals, 15 minutes for reset/cleanup and 45 minutes for painting or 30 minute reset/cleanup and 60 minutes painting or something else?

 

Also @CitizenCane we need to go prom dress shopping.....

45 min, 1 hour, or 1 hour 15 for a vanilla speed paint?

I’ve managed a lizard man in 45 minutes that I was actually proud of. But that took planning. But 1:15 doesn’t have the cache of saying “painted it in an hour”, so I’d go with that.

For speed paint I would plan 90 mins. 1 hour painting, 15 min judging, 15 min break/reset.

@Ludo just wanted to say that the Hobby Hijinx was fun of my favorite things in my first year at ReaperCon, and one of the selling features I used on bringing three new folks to the 'Con. Looking forward to participating in as many as I can!

      I just got done painting this amazing figure!

      So Reapercon 2019 was great as far as my classes went.  I taught 6 courses, all were sold out, most were 2 people beyond capacity (which was fine because I was ready for that possibility)  But I feel like 6 was just 1 too many to organize, prep, practice and deliver.  All of my classes seemed to be very much enjoyed by those who attended and I got some awesome feedback from some folks.
       
      so..  which one to not do...  that's a hard question as I enjoyed all of them.
       
      first, the must keeps. 
      Water Effects.  that class probably could have sold out 2 or 3 times.  so many want to take that so its in.
      Realistic Gore.  Overwhelming high praise from a lot of folks, so thats in.  plus its it's ridiculously fun for me.
      Weathering and aging.  This is an easy one for me to teach, always sells out and gets great reviews.  Kind of have to keep due to demand.
       
      Up for debate.
      Dragons.  I have taught multiple variants of this class.  Its not bad, and folks seem to like it but Im not sure if the demand is still high.
      Tabletop painting.  Sells out but slowly.  Its one of my strengths though.  fast painting at a high tabletop level.  
      Kids classes.  I do these mainly to ensure that the kids programming continues to grow.  The little artists amaze me every time.  Its a lot of fun and full of surprises by talented young artists.  may need to keep on principle.
       
      other subjects I have taught but not sure if folks still would be interested.  
      woodland bases, lava bases, ice and snow bases.
      batch painting.
      Blending toolbox.  (kind of a whole host of various techniques to blend)
       
      obviously, Reaper would need to approve any of these, just thinking ahead so that my submission requests will be ready when its time.  
       
      Id love your thoughts

      So. I decided to try and make some ponds... Maybe with other water features.
      I have 2 silicone mats and several hot glue guns. I used both and used a fondant roller to flatten things out.
      I'm going to try a few things. This is about 1-1.5in x 2+in

      Yes, a 2020 ReaperCon WIP! And a massive undertaking at that. I'm trying very hard not to nerd out and put this whole project into, er, Project. There's just so many pieces to keep track of, that maybe I'll just use this first post to keep track of things.
       
      Some background stuff, starting with a quote from the "Paint a giant robot! Group WIP" where I wrote some of what's planned:
       
      You can read the rest of that post here: Paint a giant robot post and a second one to see where I'm going with this: PLA print post in same topic
       
      Biggest takeaway is that, while useful, my PLA printer can only do so much. I have a resin printer backed on Kickstarter, but considering it's now 3 years late, I don't think I should hold my breath on it ever showing up. Especially when I can get a new Elegoo Mars resin printer with more capability for relatively cheap (<$300). The PLA machine was bought with both hobby and household goals in mind, and it's served well. But the resolution just ain't there! More on that down the posts.
       
      I also had the chance to gain some experience on  paper plants at ReaperCon (Main post for that in the Terrain section post here: Vellum Paper Plants - Alien Jungle (WIP)
       
      Basically, I have the scrap booking machine to make my own alien plants:
       
      Which now leads me to this WIP. This is going to tie all those pieces together. The robot WIP will still be to get a good camo scheme, but that print job is not going to be used for the final diorama. Instead, that will be the resin printer's job. So, let's break down the WIP work that I can see so far, and will be edited later to add things and mark completions.
       
      Tasks to be completed:
       
      Figures Needed
      Wight (being pulled down backwards, caught by hidden lines) Gremlin Unit 01 (stole a supply crate and ran; actually just bait to get the larger CAV to follow) Gremlin Units 02 and 03 (trip line pair, successfully snagging Wight across the chest) Gremlin Units 04 and 05 (trip line pair, successful across another part of the chest) Gremlin Unit 06 (burner unit, cut Wight's left gun in two) Gremlin Units 07 and 08 (trap door unit, hiding entrance to jungle path with camo doors strapped to them) Gremlin Units 09 and 10 (trip line pair, successful across right thigh) Gremlin Units 11 and 12 (trip line pair, broken cable across chest, possibly falling over from sudden jolt) Gremlin Unit 13 (ECM unit, some large radar dish looking thing) Gremlin Units 14, 15 and 16 (cargo units, loaded up with stolen supplies and headed out) Gremlin Units 17, 18, 19, and 20 (gun units) Gremlin Units 21, 22, and 23 (missile units) Gremlin Unit 24 (large gun unit) Gremlin Unit 25 and 26 (junked units; scavenged for parts?) Gremlin Unit 27 (2nd style missile unit) Gremlin Unit 28 (personnel carrier unit)  
      Wight Conversion
      Right Leg: cut from pelvis; reposition Feet: cut off both feet and swap positions since the tread is only on one foot Base: cut away from right foot, possibly keeping full base around left foot Left arm (maybe): cut gun into two pieces, having one falling to the ground after being cut by a heat lance/chainsaw rope  
      Details to be included
      Camo doors at front leaving marks on the dirt path, but hiding the ambush from the main trail Pieces of old broken larger CAV units around Wight gun cut in two, maybe showing inner details. May have to 3D print an add-on piece Dust being kicked up by the stolen crate (going to try using dyed cotton) IN WORK One cable snapping dynamically, with several bends and twists (superglue on thread?) Multiple vehicle tracks around camp Campfire and tents for people A latrine Other camp details (laundry, chairs, sports equipment, bored carvings, etc)  
      Jungle Plants (V=Vellum cuts, B=bought, S=Sculpted, F=Found, P=Printed)
      Large lotus flower like plants, but dry land and maybe odd colors with a large conifer cone growing from the middle (V) Jester hat plant (balls on stems around a central point) (V) COMPLETED Spiky yucca like plant (V) Jagged leaf plant (V) Tentacle plant (V) Tripod trees (three spoke trunks) (V) Large palm fronds (S) Coral like trees (P) Horn tree (lots of horn shaped leaves from a central trunk) (P, V) Ball vine (like ivy but with odd leaf shapes) (V) Cabbage-like jungle plants with large wrinkled leaves (V) Fuzzy vines (thin wire coated with static grass) (S) Anything I can buy from N/HO scale train setups and painted alien-ish (B) Reaper figures that can be clipped and painted to be plants (B) Odd trees with strange leaf shapes (onion shaped) (V) IN WORK Random grass-like jungle plants (V) IN WORK Stem ends from mandarin oranges (seriously, pull one off and look at it, stem towards the ground) (F) Anything and everything else (VBSFP)  
      Base mounting system
      Design and print modular tiles with bristles on top (basically, Bristle Block toys) Allows mounting of all the above jungle plants Fill in around plants with thinned plaster via a syringe to create the ground surfaces
