Quick reminder!

 

Only 366 days ‘til the Friday 5pm MSP entry deadline!

 

/plus a few hours, but I am sure you’ll fritter away a few anyway

I already started the drawings and figure selections! If I do them all I'll have 11 entries, one of which has 13 figures.... hmmm... 366 days. I can do this, really... yeah... not deluding myself at all....

 

I'm not actually, I'm planning the diorama with 13 figures to either be my only piece or take 2 years.

I've entered 0 dioramas.  I've got ideas for like, 4 now.  One which would probably require one of the figures to be sculpted from scratch, so that ones' out.

Well, I don't know if it is time to start considering the 2nd Annual Haribo Paintoff yet.  I  mean, we didn't start organizing the first one until we were halfway through it.

It HAS to happen, I missed it this year.

I walked by when it was just @odinsgrandson doing it. If I'd known it was going to turn into a THING, I'd have stuck around! :lol:

 

Huzzah!

Could always pop it into the Hobby Hijinks schedule.

Dioramas are hands down my favorite entries.  So much creativity, so many puns!

Before ReaperCon 2020, I need one more day to recuperate from RC19. I need to survive Bones V. And I need to paint and assemble sooo many new things.

 

Though I only entered a single thing (got Bronze in the Open category). The feedback I got afterwards combined with info from the classes has inspired me on how to up my game for next year.

 

I realized that the Bones Mashup "class" is a perfect opportunity to create many Open category entries. My largest piece can fit the Large Monster category (depending on how large is needed).

 

I already have several ideas for Open, diorama, armor/ordnance, pink, Bombshell, etc. I may not enter every single category, but I will be present in a good number of them.

So many opportunities to make Anne Foerster curse out loud in front of a crowd.

I've never felt like I could pull off an open or diorama entry, but between the Bones Mashup class and Rex Grange's basing class (such a great class, I definitely recommend it), I feel like I already have entries to both started

 

Also, I'm considering signing up for the mash up class multiple times next year. I had so much fun, and conversions seem a lot less intimidating now

It was the first ReaperCon for my husband and I and we had the most fun of any convention we've ever attended. So much so that I joined the forums just to be around you wonderful people more. We really, really want to go back. Now, if I could just convince my mother-in-law to stop planning family activities for Labor Day weekend... We blew her off this year, but I'm not sure if we could get away with it every year. That said, we're already talking about next year like we're going, so...

We got in to the Saturday morning Bones Mashup! It was the best! I hope that they are able to make a category for it or something similar like they were talking about. That seems like it could be fun. I think my husband and I are both considering entering our mashup creations next year. We both love them so much!
