I got my ribbons (BoGW) from pc nametag (dot) com

 

Same. But, a quick search in the engine of your choice for “convention ribbon” will pop up a lot of places you can buy.

I have an idea, but I'm not 100% sure i'm going yet...
 

"SQUEAK!" 

 

I have no intentions of sharing how to get this one - I'm sure at least one person would manage it, if I do go.

Cosplay as a 1:1 version of Sir ForScale?

 

I do like your weights and measures stuff do something with that?

 

I’ve actually considered it, but I sadly have no costuming skills whatsoever. :down:

EDIT: I always order the 1 5/8" by 3 1/2" ribbons from the Ribbons Galore website.

 

This is the same size as the ribbons that Reaper gives out (or at least it was for the last 3 years). ^_^

Personalized ribbons sound fun!

 

Do you guys do anything to your badge to identify your forum name so some of us newbies will know who is who?

A lot of people write their forum name instead of their real name - or part of each, etc.

I think most people use their forum name.  This not only has the convenience of association if you've read a lot of their posts, it also makes it a lot easier to find somebody in the crowd if you don't know their face.  There may be a lot of Daves and Steves, but probably only one MorkalTheDestroyer or whatever.  On the off chance that two people show up with the same codename, I guess we'll have to erect a Thunderdome on the parking lot to see who keeps it.

 

Two Buglips enter, one Buglips leaves!

I like to think of them as Secret Mission Code Names.  Also, it's awkward trying to tell Con stories when you come back home and everyone keeps wondering who the hell NexusWolf and Jimbraltar are.

 

I made up all those names, but some of them are pretty good names.  ::P:

It's easier for some of us than others. ^_^

 

There's also @Pegazus's forum bingo game, which uses buttons with the forum icon of the wearer. Look him up for a bingo card (always assuming he does it again).

Would you then become "Buglip"? Or should that be "Two Buglipses enter; one Buglips leaves!"? :devil:

It's always well received, so I do plan to have it again.

I can be both singular and plural.  I'm not confined to your limited, 6-dimensional reality.

Cool, my GenCon badge name is a hybrid of my first name and my Evil avatar. Wasn't sure if you could customize the ReaperCon names or not. At Origins you are stuck with your "real" name only. 

 

Thanks for the info everyone. Hopefully I will meet some of you.

Yep, they leave space on the badge for us to put our names. Some folks also wear additional clothing or items to identification. I wear antlers (not visible on my profile picture at the moment). 

 

Mine is Deer Friend. Let's be friends on the forums! I only had a few ribbons last year since we were only able to go last minute, but I'll be sure to order more this year. ^_^

That was my next question, how to get a specific name on the badge. 

 

So, ReaperCon does not print names on the badges? You just write it on with a sharpie or something?

 

I would love to be friends! I really need to post pics of my minis so I have more posts on the forums.

Yes, there is space on the badge for you to write your name with a sharpie. I don't remember if there were any at the registration desk, but people bring their own sharpies anyway, so finding one shouldn't be too much of a chore.

From what I remember from last year there were sharpies at the registration desk when I got my badge on Wednesday. I am not sure how long that lasted though...

      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

      I'm not really sure when I'll get to these, but I found a bunch of cheap sheets that I'm going to diy into mats for wargaming. As it is, they're fine (I got green, blue, and brown, and passed on a grey) . But I might sponge on some various paints for waves/ ice (double sided blue sheet) and various greens for the green sheet.

      It this yesterday because it gives me a nice in-between mini from my reaper eldritch demon and my Cthulhu.
      This is about 90 minutes


      Lots of inaccessible spots and texture which makes painting not fun. Will be making this shorter than planned as a result. Everything will get a flesh wash. I'll do some eyes and claws, then a medium and ink wash of the clear plastic water.

      Hey guys! 
      I haven't stopped moving since Reapercon. 
      This was my Paint It Pink entry, "Screening Ain't Sexy".
      Hope y'all like it. I enjoy things that are ridiculous, and applying fake eyelashes to a miniature monster paint pot fit the bill for me. :D
       
      C&C is always welcome!
