Too many good rpg adventures published by talented authors out there! Trying to whittle down my games to just 4 + 1 & it's a very hard thing to do. I know for sure We Be Goblins! 5e will run again, so there is the +1, now the others, 1 or 2 for sure, but the others I've having a hard time deciding. I do know I'm not gonna repeat last year's lets try to paint everything a month before September again. I did enjoy the month of painting I did, but I wanna spread that joy out this year & not cramp myself into the last month.

Five months sounds like a long time, but when I've got 2 games every week & other hobby stuff, I'm just trying to get things in line before I actually need to.

Just wanted to say that the Meet and Greet is still being planned and that it could change. 🙂 But the current plan is to have it at the factory this year, as always plans could change!

That would be many shades of awesome!  I miss meeting at the factory.

 

 

 

Right now I am starting to consider what classes I am going to teach this year.  Anyone have any requests?

So I'm not sure exactly what sort of class(es) this would (or even could) translate into, but one thing I would love to be able to do is sculpt (or heavily convert) alternate arms and legs for existing miniatures.  For example, I'd love to be able to convert a couple of NOVA Corp figures to be sitting in a jeep or convert the single pose of the Rach and Malvernis soldier figs into 3-4 more poses. 

Another thing I'd like to learn is some very basic digital sculpting of more organic shapes - what the best free software is, and it's basics. Mostly to do the above.  I'm pretty comfortable in 3d CAD software like Fusion 360 for mechanical things like vehicles and greeblies for scratch-building buildings, but I'd love to be able to do the same for minis.

I'm looking for some good newbie classes, and my husband got an airbrush for Christmas, so he'll probably be looking for some classes on airbrushing.

I would love some classes on paint mediums with hands on watching. I feel like I'm not thinning my paints properly and it's leading to more difficulty in my blending than is really necessary

You may have already watched this since you've been around a while.  But for anyone who hasn't seen it, here it is:

Definitely look for Aaron Lovejoy when his name comes up for airbrushing classes.

I mostly teach sculpting classes, but if you are looking to learn the basics of sculpting on your minis, my Sculpting Nature class is the one that covers the basics and gives you a foundation to build on.

As for your husband, get in one of Aaron Lovejoy's airbrush classes (or better yet take his 4 week online class).  Well worth the money.  Bear in mind, Aaron's ReaperCon airbrush classes sell out within the first hour of classes opening for sale.
