Hobby Hijinks
ReaperCon is not only about having fun. Sometimes it's about games, too.

Check out the various hijinks you can get up to while you're here!

Sophie Says

A fun cross of Simon Says and Speed Painting. Don’t let the time element scare you, this is about being silly and having fun while painting a mini. All supplies and the mini will be provided. Once the timer starts, participants will have 45 minutes to paint the mini to the best of their abilities. Sophie, (or one of her minions) will intermittently apply challenges to the painters, such as painting while standing on one leg, painting polka dots somewhere on the mini, etc. Sophie understands that not everyone will be able to perform all of the challenges and encourages participants to participate as much as they feel comfortable. Every participant will receive a certificate declaring how awesome and silly they are.
This is a kid friendly activity, but we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult.

Sophie Says After Dark

This is slightly more adult themed version of Sophie Says, a fun cross of Simon Says and Speed Painting. Don’t let the time element scare you, this is about being silly and having fun while painting a mini. All supplies and the mini will be provided. Once the timer starts, participants will have 45 minutes to paint the mini to the best of their abilities. Sophie, (or one of her minions) will intermittently apply challenges to the painters, such as painting while standing on one leg, painting polka dots somewhere on the mini, etc. Sophie understands that not everyone will be able to perform all of the challenges and encourages participants to participate as much as they feel comfortable.
THIS IS A PG-13 VERSION. ADULT BEVERAGES WILL BE ALLOWED AT THE TABLES AND THINGS WILL BE MAY BE MORE AWKWARD.

Speed Paint

All supplies and the mini will be provided. Participants are allowed to bring their own brush if they wish. Once the timer starts, participants will have 45 minutes to paint the mini to the best of their abilities. Once the time is up all painting must cease. All entries will be judged by specially selected stunt judge. Prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. All participants will receive a certificate to attest to grit and determination.
This is a kid friendly activity, but we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult.

Paint by Die Roll

This is a group skill building event rather than a competition. Step outside your comfort zone and paint with color combinations. All supplies and the mini will be provided. Participants are allowed to bring their own brush and/or palate if they wish. All participants will receive the same mini, the group will then roll a d20 to determine which portions of the mini will be what color. Example: Last year there an ogre chieftain with Palomino gold skin, purple cloth, mint green metal, and pale lichen leather. Black, White, and Brown will be provided for shading and highlighting purposes only. Everyone will receive a certificate attesting to their willingness to try new things.
This is a kid friendly activity, but we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult.

Quick Conversion

Let your creativity flow as you cut, glue, and pin your own unique mini. Use a collection of Reaper minis and pieces to create something new. Will you come up with a goblin headed rogue, or a beholder mermaid? It’s up to you.
This activity will involve cutting implements and super clue so we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult.

Ed Sculpts are Best Sculpts

When Reaper was a young company and sculptors could get first hand references for their dinosaur sculpts, now president of Reaper Miniatures, Ed Pugh, contributed to the product line by sculpting many of the skeletons. Come raise the dead and socialize with your fellow necroma.....painters.
