I helped out Thom with his game although I didn't play in it. I essentially handed him the figures he needed after describing the situation to the players. They all used the wooden warriors I bought and Thom used the monsters. This was an RPG convention, not a minis game convention, but the people that played the game seemed to really like the figures. I did not however get one person who stopped by to take a look at them, which never happens at a minis convention when I have used these guys. Even if they end up not liking them, people stop by the table and ask about the figures and take a look at them. Didn't happen at this Con but again, I think that's because it isn't a minis convention. Also, and this is great for the people running the games, each table has its own dry erase gridded map which makes drawing the dungeon super easy. Unfortunately, it means that there is not terrain. The figures are just on the dry erase mat. But I totally understand why they do it that way, it makes it super easy on the game masters.
Anyway, here are some pics of the game with my figures.
Another room where the party was fighting the goblin gargoyles.
Probably the best picture I took, the party fighting the dreaded alter mimic! That figure, more than any of the others, was the biggest hit I think. Ironically, it's by far the easiest one to make and paint!
And the last room in the dungeon, the party fighting the Lovecraftian horror. Unlike the alter mimic, this figure was a bear to construct and paint, although people seemed to like this one too.
It was great getting some exposure for my figures at the Con. As I said, I hoped to get more walk-up traffic about them, but I didn't really get much. However, Thom has been incredibly supportive and he made an explicit effort to get people to take a look at them and heaped plenty of praise on the figures. So I'm feeling good about it.
Maybe tomorrow or Friday I'll try to post some pics of some new figures I've been working on, another human cleric, a half-orc fighter type, and that male dwarf that I used in this game but haven't posted pictures of yet.
