  1. I know they're doing an online version of Reapercon but don't know exactly how (or if) the Mini contest would work. I'll enter it if there's opportunity. While there is a best in show and manufacturer's awards, overall Reapercon is set up so that you're only competing against yourself. Everyone is rated Nothing/Bronze/Silver/Gold. I was hoping this piece would be a high silver if not Gold level and then place well in the manufacturer's awards (DGS Games -- I took 3rd for them last year for my polar bear cavalry piece). I learned a lot in this piece. I really hate painting skintone
  2. After weeks away from the bench, I'm starting to paint a bit again - bugs, heat, and humidity have helped entice me to stay indoors! This is a piece I'd intended to take Reapercon this year. He's 99% complete, pending any last minute adjustments after he sits for a few days. I'm really happy with him, tho he's almost overpowered by the base. PS - That's a the base off of my Dog Might mini holder serving as a makeshift plinth for pictures!
  3. "Hey Zoxe, how's the weather?" "Bugs, lots of bugs...." "That's ... not weather??" "Obviously you've never been to Indiana in July." We've had a fairly mild and dry June. Almost "normal" compared to the weather I remember as a kid (recent years have ... not been normal.). So, no complaints. But in the past 2 weeks, the deer flies have come up. A truly brutal crop of them this year. Having them is nothing new for us, but when they're this thick there's enough "pressure" that they'll continue to try to get to you through a thick cloud of bug spray, looking for gaps in coverage
  4. With 40 minutes to go, FH is the #1 backed board game on Kickstarter, knocking off KDM. Poots/KDM put a post up that was really classy, urging them to set a new record, and then promptly backed FH from the main KDM account. Isaac then posted a picture of himself and Poots at a past Gencon. Is kind of an awesome day in an otherwise dreary year.
  5. Shadows of Brimstone: Forbidden Fortress - Awaiting final addons Kingdom Death: Need waves 3, 4, and (if applicable) 5 Zombicide Invader Vast: The Mysterious Manner Freeblades: Thrakansor, Dragon of Fire (Figure and addon for scenarios) - Ahead of schedule, will pickup at Gencon Freeblades: Snakes and Skulls: New starter armies for new factions - Ahead of schedule, will pickup at Gencon Shadows of Brimstone Adventures Root: the Underworld Expansion Terrain Essentials (book) Labrynthos Return to Dark Tower Frosthaven
  6. I went 'all in' despite having only about an hour more play time than you. I love the idea; can never break off enough time consistently to drag it out.
  7. The Frosthaven campaign is wrapping up! As I type it's a little north of $9.3M and the 2nd most funded tabletop game on KS (behind the sprawling Kingdom Death).
  8. I am going to tag @Anne and @Konas so they get a ping. 😁
  9. There's some bronze and blue metallic colors in the shadows (they don't photograph well), but wanted to contrast the gold armor. This one is intended for display. I have another of this guy partially painted for my actual Freeblades army, and HIS is brass and gold color shift.
  10. Up on the paperclip keeping things clean will be no big deal. I did my main airbrushing on another cork (I bought a big bag of wine corks on amazon) and then transferred to the holder. Unless I drop a brush or sneeze or something, I'm not going to slop paint on the holder by hand.
  11. Work in progress and testing the DMG figure holder! I have a lot of work left to do. At present I'm trying to get all the base colors in on the figure and base so that I can see if everything works as I hope. I like the Hammer Head where it is, but the gold armor is a little messy in the highlighting (and doesn't photograph well at all). Need to paint his face, beard, and hammer handle. So far so, good. Ideally I'd get him done this week and have 1 figure entry waiting on Labor Day.
  12. I got in late Friday for the drop, but I did grab the Cherry one that you put up.
  13. Good luck to all with aspirations towards Gencon housing. We have our badges and our parking but once again don't expect to be staying downtown -- especially now that we see our queue time.
  14. You should be fine. Acrylics come off of gloss surfaces pretty easily with water and a paper towel if you catch it before it's fully cured. I don't know what rubbing alcohol would do to DMG finishes, but it eats acrylic paint - even cured acrylic - pretty quickly. I start and finish almost every mini with the airbrush, so I've generally NOT used a fancy holder - 20oz plastic bottle lids are my favorite (Gatorade, Vitamin Water) - but I have some pieces in work that I'd gladly swap to a more stable base, even if I have to swap back for the final airbrush shading. I know I don't want
