Crimson's annual basing meetup

Recommended Posts

If anyone recalls I put together an unofficial meetup In the evening where we could all get together and learn from each other about basing minis. Im not an expert and it's one of the reasons I put it together, so I and everyone involved could learn more. I will be doing the same this year but I understand it might be harder for some people this year since they've introduced the reaper u night classes. I was donated quite a bit of materials last year from forumites that I will be bringing this year as well as some others. Anyone is welcome to bring what they want anyone is welcome any knowledge is welcome. I will post pictures of what I've got over the weekend and what day and time it will be, just like last year it will be in the main convention area just look for the unicorn hat! Hope as many people show up as last year!

any particular night or every one?

Last year there was a specific night but the box was left on thr table the whole con for people to use whenever. Im thinking this year I will be at the table every night for a bit unless I've got a class but there will be a specific night for the main get together and as usual the box will be left there.

If you would like me to bring some of my Fantasy bakery stamps and/or greenstuff rollers with me, I am pretty sure I can fit them in the luggage.  I might see if I can find a bin of air dry clay at Michaels to play with when I get there.  its a cheap medium to experiment with and gets the job done with easy cleanup and no baking required.

Note to self:  bring rock for Ludo

 

any thoughts on what basing plates I should bring?  I have a bunch of them from sci-fi to temple floors, to jungle, to swamp.  My favorites are the Victorian streets, the swamp, the ruined wood floor, and the beach.

Depending on suitcase space and weight, I might be able to bring some stuff to donate from the Basing Box of Goodwill.

These are the ones I know I have.  (I went overboard and then found their sale as they were closing their doors.)

Ok sorry between getting ready and work I haven't had time to update. As far as materials ive got an assortment of flocks from last year, some homemade flocks we made, cork board for rocks, paint brushes for tall grass, a sheet of moss, and some more but that's the bulk of it. Also thinking about demonstrating to people how to make their own homemade flock. Other people have mentioned donating things if this is still a thing we will be arriving Wednesday afternoon you can PM me on the forum or just let me know in this thread how best to get ahold of you. As far as when I'll officially make it Friday night at about 730ish. It should be near the doors to the main area just look for the unicorn hat. I will however set up the table Thursday evening and leave it set up the whole time and so people can stop by sit and use the materials whenever I will also frequent the table. Hope to see people there!
