ReaperCon 2019 Ribbons


Ludo
 Share

Recommended Posts

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.

Thank You @Ludo for starting this thread.  Very Timely.

What's the upper range size limit for "small"  pretty rocks?

I'm hoping the Ribbon Fairy will be contacting me.

I have an idea for a personal ribbon but am basically clueless about getting them produced.

I plan to have 2 ribbons this year:

 

STOMP of Approval - all you have to do is tell me your forum name. If you don't have one yet, sign up and show me that you did so! ^_^

SHINY!!!!! - take one of my classes! Or bring me a specific question about metallic paints (how to use them, coloring them, different brands etc.) and let me gush at you about them for a few minutes, lol.

 

Still trying to decide on colors, then I'll be ordering. :bday:

 

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

 

Huzzah!

Well I'm driving a Nissan Frontier down from Oklahoma so it has to fit in that....

 

I got your rock the week or two after last year's ReaperCon. Need to mark it on why it's special with a Sharpie.

 

Planning to have two ribbons this year:

BINGO! - My normal forumite meeting bingo game

BLACKOUT - Everybody always seemed disappointed there wasn't a reward for blackout, so now there will be.

I will probably have Saved Vs. Fire again. Basically same rules as last year. If you don't know... find me Saturday at the Con and ask. :devil:

I will also have Portalite ribbons.

 

I don't know if Mr. Thorne will have any; I'll have to ask him. 

 

*suggests metallic on rainbow for SHINY! ribbons* ::D:

I'm considering making a set of ribbons for fun, but this is my first reapercon so I'm not sure what people usually do and don't want to step on any toes. 

 

Does anyone typically do some variation on "fluffy!"?

 

Not to my knowledge. I also think it would be kinda cool if there were 2 Fluffy ribbons with different requirements.

I still have a supply of "1:1 Scale" ribbons left over from 2017. I will make them available until I run out.

To get one, you have to let me take a picture of you with Sir ForScale, which may appear later on social media. (You can choose to keep your face out of the photo, if you like)

 

I haven't come up with anything new for 2019 yet, but I am contemplating options.

Cosplay as a 1:1 version of Sir ForScale?

 

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

      We are very excited to be able to come back and participate at ReaperCon again this year!
      There are a ton of new releases that will be in-stock at the show and a couple of other special items.
       

       
      Bombshell Miniatures presents the 2021 Golden Maelee Award. This is a Sponsored Award section of the annual Reaper Master Series Open Painting Contest. All entries will be awarded a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Bombshell Dog Tag depending on the level of painting and presentation of each entry. The brand new, larger, Golden Maelee trophies will be awarded to the top three paint jobs (Gold, Silver, and Bronze) depending on the number of entries.

      Entries will need to feature at least one or more Bombshell Miniatures as the prominent subject. This can be anything from Babes, Sidekicks, KritterKins, to robots, or busts. Each entry will be judged on its own merit of painting execution, presentation, and skill.
       
      Entries from artists who have been professionally commissioned by Bombshell Miniatures are ineligible for the Golden Maelee Trophy at this time, they may still receive Dog Tag awards.
       
      BADGE RIBBONS
      We have some new ribbons. Come by our booth and receive our Bombshell ribbon for your visit.
      You may receive one of the other themed ribbons depending on your purchase.

       
      THE RESIN VAT
      This year we will be offering seconds and mis-cast resin parts for sale by weight. Just scoop out what you want and we'll weigh it at check-out.
      Although these castings didn't pass muster, you may find a gem that is just right for that conversion or terrain project down the line.

       
      COUNTERBLAST FOR SAVAGE WORLDS
      Over the past year we have been working on creating a setting book of our Counterblast game for the Savage Worlds RPG.
      Come by our booth and get the details to sit in on a couple of impromptu RPG preview sessions during the con.
      There may even be freebies involved!

       
      We are super excited to visit with all of you again and we're looking forward to see what you've been painting!
      Patrick & Vicky

      Hey its buc. I have run games of Rangers of Shadowdeep at Reapercon and the Reaper online conventions. Is there enough interest for me to run Rangers of Shadowdeep at Reapercon in person this year? Would it be better to put my effort into Stargrave and or Frostgrave?

      I was considering running a game at Reapercon this year (assuming it happens). Is there interest in Stargrave as a convention event? Are other people planning on running the game at the convention?

      This one was for a facebook competition about color. The rules were, basically, don't worry about anything else but color. Do something different with color. I started with the idea of a dress palette of blue, teal, purple, and magenta. Once I had those colors in place, it was a matter of incorporating them in different areas of the model. I went with cotton candy roses and a galaxy print on the wings. The galaxy was a matter of stippling the dress colors (plus a bit of white) back and forth until the effect was convincing. Then I masked the body of the model and flicked a stiff brush at the wings to make star patterns. I then went back to the dress colors and stippling to blend them in a bit. This was a blast to paint, because I've never really done anything like this before.
