If you move around the Austin area we could visit fairly often...a definite reason to live in Dallas.

I would really like that.

Unfortunately, my job is in Fort Worth, and that would be an awfully long commute every day.

Query for Sept. 2nd:

Do you have a dedicated paint/hobby space? If so, what does it look like? Feel free to either describe in words; or show it off with pix.

 

I'm lucky enough to have a small dedicated hobby space. I was going to tidy it up for the photo, but that felt like cheating...

It usually has a resident mischief maker :rolleyes: Here he is making sure the lamps are working okay.

He usually sleeps under the chair, hence the assorted stolen fabric/socks under it. His brother is not allowed on the table because he's a clumsy wee brat and this invariably happens

Here's a better shot of my frankensteins monster of a paint rack. There is a pattern in laying them out, honest!

I have a Painting Desk in the corner of the dining room. 

decent light, and allows me to break off painting and parent when necessary, since its in the center of the townhouse.

during the pandemic it has been more challenging to find painting time, as other people use the dining and open kitchen. 

It still get used at least twice a week.  

 

Pictures of Desk, im glad to see that I am not the only one who struggles with tidiness. 

Picture of its  relationship to dining area.  The Area above the fireplace is minatures and basing supplies storage, 

but most of the painted minis have moved to the basement. 

As my collection outgrew this space.  The Dragons and other figures that Mini-spawn plays with, live on the Mantle instead.

RCon series…

Query for Sept. 3rd: 

Are you planning to participate in the Eat and Greet activity tonight that is part of ReaperCon?

Didn't even know about it, so... Probably not? Gotta study. But we'll see how my brain is doing.

Nope.  I haven't even looked at the classes schedule for Reapercon Online, truth be told.

but I'm getting an office/studio! 1st floor and I get to design it. Like to how big it is and where are the windows, electricals and lighting. 

  It is really exciting, but also quite daunting. So many choices that I've never had before! I think I'll be reading through everyone's answers and taking notes... 

 

There is a nice WiP thread by @ub3r_n3rd https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/72432-hobbygame-room-an-ub3r-wip/  I hope the pix can be found somehow. Some are missing.

 

There is also this much older Work Areas thread.

https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/9791-work-areas/page/18/ 

 

Some ideas to consider concerning the electrics: 

  • Electrical plugs are always too few in hobby spaces. Make the architect double-up the number even if there has to be a second circuit.
  • Electrical plugs down near the floor are hard to reach. (Except for tiny toddlers …? :upside: )
  • Electrical plugs just above table height are awesome. So easy to reach to plug and unplug laptops, printers, chargers, desk lamps….

Yes I will.  Looking at a class on airbrush first.  Isn't it meat & greet?

Maybe, but I thought they tweaked the name a bit? because not everybody is having the same food??

      The rules: as they were last month (in addition to all regular forum rules) except where I sneakily changed them:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question. †
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day, a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... ††
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted sometime before 1 AM Reaper time (US Central).
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to Talespinner or Morihalda… 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.
      8. Pix always welcome.
       
       
      The first question will need to be posted after a brief (10 minute) pause to foil the merging of posts.
      The footnotes, because I can't resist doing †††footnotes:
       
      † I will aim for 0600 Reaper/Nottingham time.
      ††  If subs and backstops could wait until 11AM in Reaper/Denton's timezone to see if I remember.
      ††† …because I re-remembered how to do the dagger ( † ) symbol.

      The rules as they currently stand (in addition to all regular forum rules):
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or some thing) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day (or send a recently asked one!) a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.

      Goal
       
      The purpose of this thread is to gather in one place all the visual answers to the oft recurring question, “How big is Reaper miniature __ __ __ __ __ ?”
       
      That question comes up about once a week; but always about different models. This thread is meant to serve as a place for those foolish kind souls who decide to answer in detail with a photograph to post their work. 
       
       
      Guidelines for such photographs
       
      “...Posed in front of an inch or centimeter grid, and / or with a ruler laid out in front of, above, or behind them, and / or next to other Miniatures for comparison...” Comparison pics are the most useful because the numerical height of a model doesn't always tell you how bulky it is, or how exaggerated the features might be. Common objects like paint dropper bottles, figure bases, and specific Miniatures like Sir Forscale (76543) can acquaint the viewer with size of a new Mini, especially while standing on a grid. The best comparison shots are like police line-ups: several miniatures side-by-side in front of an easily-read scale.
       
      @Pingo @redambrosia and @lowlylowlycook contributed most of the wording in the preceding paragraph (which I edited a bit).
