That he is.  Thanks again to you and the Great Bearded One for schlepping me around and introducing me to Buc-ee and the exposition to Recycled books.

I found one more picture. Behold Army! There was lots of them. A sign said this was James Wappel’s Table. It was out in the quasi- lobby area.

Buc-ee is AMAZING. I bought a regular plush buc-ee in the red shirt and sent it home, then on the way back to here we found a blue shirt buc-ee for me to bring back for my sister.  Her birthday is the same day I fly home.

 

ALL MUST KNOW BUC-EE

So say we all!

Also, are you still in the market for more planes? We have 2 in our melt pile for next year. Lol

Very kind of you, but I amassed quite a squadron.  Initially I thought there might be many kinds but it was only the F4U Corsair and FW-190d9.  My thanks to all who gave theirs up for adoption at the con, they all have a good home, but any more is probably just hoarding.

This may or may not be the proper place, and it may have been addressed in the previous 18 pages of posts, but does not Reaper post a file of all of the "official" photos of the entries?  And if so, where?  And, perhaps, when?

It usually gets put on the ReaperCon website. Not sure how long it will take to get up there this year.

Also... we may have bought a buc-ee hat.  And pyjamas.  And a shirt.  And magnets.  And keychains.  And delicious proprietary candies and treats in mass quantity.  

 

We... we went in a little deep.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No regrets.

Here: 

https://reapercon.com/mspopen/2019

 

looking at all the entries in open and diorama, I agreed with the judges 90%  of the time.

- the judging I disagreed with most was Mrs Wapple her blue stuffed animal did not say - gold medal,  but her ogre did. 

 

Comparing the categories to my own work... I would/should be getting silver on a good day, bronze on a bad one. 

and not even a high silver (1 vote for gold, 2 for silver out of 3 judges.) 

 

I can put freehand on cloth, and NMM on armor or a sword but it looks like the idea of a metal sword or cloth pattern, not an actual one. 

Also I need to make sure I have a good base.  The figures that scored highly had good bases, even in painters category.

Correlation is as likely as than Causation, but if is a borderline case, basing seemed to have had some weight.

i think that's what is dragging my own pieces down. I score 'high silver' consistently in Painters and Open, but never actually manage to get into Gold. I am 50/50 on getting Silver or Bronze in Diorama

Meanwhile, this ones brindle brothe was out and about with one of their hooman caregivers, no doubt spreading the news of the rescue center and recruiting for M.E.O.W.

      So. I decided to try and make some ponds... Maybe with other water features.
      I have 2 silicone mats and several hot glue guns. I used both and used a fondant roller to flatten things out.
      I'm going to try a few things. This is about 1-1.5in x 2+in

      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

      This is the thread where I'll paint my Dreadmere stuff to go with new Bones V stuff when it arrives.
      I started with my extra Gulper ( 44038 ) and rowboat (Dreadmere Fishing Boat 44032 ).
      starting with Gulper inspiration - the redtail catfish.

      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.
