Kraken: Released! Ran out Saturday afternoon and I gave out my last Trip Hazzards Sunday during my game.  Looks like I need to double my order for next year.

 

I got the last Kraken: Released! I'm happy to be here on the forums (finally!). It's odd that I'm putting screennames to faces rather than the other way around, but I don't care. Still loving it.

I'm sure we met, but I don't have a face to put to your forum name.

I will have a limited number of leftover Edmazing! ribbons.  After the contest close I gave a pile to Ed to hand out and kept maybe 20 in case I ran into people who earned one but didn't get it.  

 

I may have a new ribbon if I can think of something good.

We definitely did. I did the Bingo and several Hobby Hijinks as well. I turned my bingo card in on Sunday after deciding a Blackout was out of reach and I did a Speed Paint on Saturday afternoon with @Sylverthorne and @Kangaroorex sat down late to join us. It was the lich looking model. Everyone was super helpful trying to point out the forumites on my bingo card. I'm sure all the Hijinks blend together, though, so I'm not sure that really helps. I'm still learning the forum features too, so I'm at a loss on how to help more.

No, I think I could pick you out of a small crowd now.

 

At least for the next two weeks!

I got two Duskwarden Ribbons. Not sure how the 2nd turned up. And I might be the sole person to earn one of Thes’s Ribbons by being good, following Doctor orders and not noshing on a spherical chunk of calorific chocolate. (They looked sorta like Ferrari Rochfort candies but were something different.)

 

But that was it. 3 total. I didn’t even get the melt table ribbon even though I made one visit and rescued five minis.

I will be cranking up the production line for more handmade "Twinkle" ribbons for next year.

The production of these makes a good fill in while I'm waiting for paint to dry.

Nick Anything will have a pirate chest filled with hard candies.

I'm considering other ideas for ribbons.

Maybe a wordless ribbon. Not sure if anybody has done a wordless ribbon.

Pick one of these icons or something similar centered — no words.

If you look closely at each of the ribbons I handed out, the letter "E" had a small sparkly GEM in the area of the loop. :poke:

I do like the idea of a wordless ribbon.

And you haven't even shown any of the other cuts besides the evolution and variations on the Brilliant Cut.

I thought of a second wordless ribbon idea (that is I remembered one) but it isn’t a very happy, fun, or lighthearted idea and it’s unoriginal (Robert Louis Stevenson thought of it first) but it is solidly on theme.

I have to admit that the fact that every one of your ribbons was handcrafted made that one of my favorites. That and the Nibbler coin. Chocolate is the answer to pretty much any problem.

I fix it by having two wings on the side; one for smaller, one for larger, with other odd sizes on the badge around the top where they'll fit. I've had only limited success with re-sticking ribbons after pulling them off, so I generally leave the ones in the main train alone. 

 

EDIT: What's the requirement for Trip Hazard, again? Is it knee-length? 

 

Huzzah! 

--OneBoot :D 

 

Granted that knee length is not an equally easily achievable goal for everyone, but with the increase in availability of the number of ribbons, I think that there needs to be a 2nd tier award for extra long ribbon strings. I hit Tripping on the first day without breaking a sweat and the ribbons kept coming...

I went with knee length as orriginally, it took some work to get there as a couple of years ago, there just weren't as many ribbons available for people to earn.  I think 100 Trip Hazard ribbons lasted me..2 or 3 years?  This year I went throgh 100 by Sunday Morning.  And as far as equal difficulty, well, us tall folk can reach things on the top shelf so I figure that equals out.

 

I have thought about another one for when the train hits the ground; FLOORED.  Not sure I want to be handing out 3 ribbons next year.

      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.

      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
