Reapercon 2020: early excitement and chatter

Recommended Posts

With the imminent arrival of ReaperCon 2020, I'm wondering whether a class in miniatures prep and assembly would be something that people would be interested in.

 

I've seen enough talk about people worrying about how to pin miniatures, how to clean flash and mold lines, how to remove bases, how (and whether) to prime, and how to glue parts together and to bases that I thought it might be useful. (The class would cover metal, resin, styrene, and PVC miniatures.)

I could see this being useful for a lot of folks.  Took me years of hobby before someone explained pinning to me.

I could see this being useful. Especially for extra small and extra large things. Say the Bones version of Gauth's bowing down being corrected with extra support pins, vs connecting tiny hands holding swords on to thin arms?

And the first day will be mine! That's a really late Labor Day.... Here's hoping it works out with my schedule...

I took a class similar to this by Tish Wolter in 2017. The only problem with it (other than the location: PEC) was it was a demo only and not a hands on class.

You could have people bring their own miniature that they want to pin/clean up, etc.. 

 

Maybe have that as a second-half activity since it’s so varied and specific to each figure. I would butcher a super solid Bones figure for attendees to reassemble, in an odd spot so there are no regular guides like arm sockets. Thinking along the lines of running the torso through a band saw, so lining up the two halves with pins becomes part of the process.

 

Hmm. Might be too complicated. Perhaps an arm pinning, then the torso, then the student’s work if time allows.

Agree it is interesting, I think I could almost teach it...

This class would have a high tools requirement. Either 8 toolkits needed or those who sign up need to bring their own.  And maybe each participant needs to bring 4 models: resin, metal, styrene, pvc, bones black, etc. (5?)

 

 

Would this be a better fit for a ReaperLive video demo style class ?
