2019 ReaperCon Forumite Bingo Signup

Recommended Posts

Hey all! Time for the 2019 ReaperCon Forumite Bingo! So, those of you who were on the cards previously, or got a card last year know how the game works, so you can skip the next paragraph.

 

What is Forumite Bingo? It's a convention game I came up that is generally well received so I will do it again this year. The game is just like what a bingo game would be, but rather than calling out numbers to fill your card, you must go around and introduce yourself to members of the forum who are on your card. Say hi to them, and you can cross their box off. Once you've made "bingo", return to me for your Bingo ribbon. Blackout isn't required, but several people did it for the grins, and this year there will be a ribbon for doing that. And there's nothing to 'prove' you met those who you have said you have, just the honor system. You only punish yourself by cheating yourself out of meeting wonderful people.

 

Each year there are more volunteers than spaces, so not every one was on every card, and hopefully there will be enough volunteers again this year. It made for a good variety. So, this thread is not for signing up to receive a card to play. This is a signup for people who are willing to be on a card. The cards will be freely handed out at the convention. Just come find me. Be aware, volunteering to be on the card will mean that complete strangers will be coming up to meet you, and they may not be actually signed up and be on this forum. That happens more often than I thought it would each year. If that makes you uncomfortable, then reconsider volunteering.

 

So, the ground rules:

 

  1. I exclude the Reaper peeps since they are all pretty accessible. The game's purpose is to meet the forum members. I will continue that. Sorry peeps, we love ya, but I feel that's best.
  2. The free square in the middle will be me, since everybody has to meet me to get the card it seems the fairest way.
  3. You must be going to ReaperCon to be on the card please! And if possible, the full Thursday to Saturday at least. It's unfair to those whose card you are on if you don't show, or are a Saturday only person. I will not exclude you if you are a Saturday only (or similar) limited attendee. However, people who have you on their cards will get to cross you off without meeting you if you aren't there when they need you for bingo.
  4. By replying with the information below, you are giving your permission to use the picture provided and your name provided, and to be inundated with people introducing themselves to you.
  5. Once I've printed the cards (much closer to the con than I want), they are set in stone. I can't remove people from the cards, and they're a bit pricey to just toss. Plans change, life happens, and if you become a no-show, you simply become a gimme square and are crossed off automatically by those who need your square. It already happened once and well, it will probably happen again. We'll just roll along in those cases.
  6. Signups will be open from now until August 17th. That gives me a mere two weeks to randomize the cards and have them printed on card stock. If a mod would auto-lock this thread on that date, that would be appreciated. Once the thread is locked, no more volunteers will be accepted.
  7. One does not need to be very active on these forums to be on the card, but it helps people to recognize you. I will not turn away anybody that isn't very active if they really want to be on the card.
  8. If there's a question about any of these numbered questions, please quote the text since the numbering is automatic and I can't control it if there's an insertion.
  9. I will update these rules as questions and issues come up.

 

All ready to sign up? Good! Here's what you need to do. Reply to this thread with:

  1. The name you want to use. I prefer your forum handle, so people might have some idea of who you are. They can always write your real name across the square as a way of crossing you off, but it's up to you what name to have on the card.
  2. What picture you wish to use for your square. Again, I prefer your forum picture, but if you are someone who changes it often, I might grab one that isn't current so having you explicitly give me one helps.
  3. What days you will be at ReaperCon. I'll put the days you won't be there on the square, and this will help us know if your are there that day or not. I'm only using Thursday thru Saturday, with Wednesday as a simple bonus day.

 

This is optional, but if you could also send a recent picture of your actual self via PM to me if I don't have one already or your appearance has shifted drastically, I'd appreciate it. Something like a full on face shot, without costume. I have my ReaperDex/"cheat sheet" of sorts on my phone to help myself remember who is who. This way I can help direct people to those members they're still needing to collect. My brain isn't wired to put names to faces easily, and being tired from the Con won't help that. Having something I can use to point the way will help. Again, this is optional.

 

I think that's it for now. See you all in a month!

Forum Pic (I found last year's button, so you don't need to make me a new one -- if you trust that I will still be able to find the button in three-ish weeks and will remember to bring it. Hmmm. :unsure:)

Wednesday to Sunday. We might have to leave early on Sunday to get back to Denver in time to see our son off to Basic Training. But we'll be there at least until noon, because I have a class that ends then.

 

And since I don't mind people seeing my actual face:

Forum name, this picture is fine (I still have my button). 

I'll be there all four days, but may be easiest to find while in costume; that'll be .. Friday? Possibly also Saturday, depends how I feel about the ears. ^^;

Please sign up both Buglips and myself. Our forum names and forum pics don’t change. We will be there all of the days. Our real faces haven’t changed as far as I know but let me know if you need another real people picture of us.

Forum name and current avatar picture please! I'll be there every day. My avatar is different from the one I had last year, so I'll send you a copy in a couple days (once I have access to my computer again).

 

My face is the same as it was every previous year, but I can send you a pic specifically if you'd like. Additionally, I'll be dressed up as Wild West Sophie on Friday and Saturday (complete with feather wings!) 

 

Huzzah!

Can I still be in this? I'll be there Saturday on! (I get in Friday night). Avatar picture please. And forum name!

 

I'm not gonna be in any classes so people should be able to find me in the main room nearly the entire time I'm there.

I'll be wearing my antlers the whole time so it should be easy to find me.

I'm happy to be back on it after I wasn't sure if I'd be at the con last year!

 

Updated to my old forum picture and goodness, they really limit the size on those now....

I'm game.

Forum handle and image are fine with me.

I don't actually have any recent pictures of myself; let me know if you need one.

I'll be there Wed-Mon.

      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
