Modeling night?
« on: July 06, 2008, 07:13:50 PM »
I was wondering if the store set aside some time and table space for modeling on weekend since sometimes fridays and saturdays magic players kick us painters off the tables  :-[ Also what about making more terrain for the store. The ruined city stuff is nice but what ever happened to the snow world, the desert? I thought we could make a deamon world using rods to make "floating" terrain and make a deamon gate peice with that disc i got a while back.

More terrain for the store would be awesome.  I'm guessing an issue has been sustainable interest for a terrain/painting club.  I'm probably wrong but I've seen interest flare up before with a lot of hype and then die out.  Someone who has been at the store longer can comment on that.

If more terrain was made it'd be really nice. I know there's the Egypt stuff already that could be expanded (yay Tomb Kings).

A terrain club is so long overdue at Battleground, I don't even know what to say about it. We've talked several times about getting one going but it needs dedication from someone other than just me. A trio of leaders with good organizational skills in addition to terrain-making skills would be fantastic. I would be a very active participant in a club that gets going, but running the store needs to remain top priority for me. As such, there will often be nights that I am unable to donate my time.

Of course, Battleground would cover the cost of all terrain made for the store, and I have some nice ideas on rewards for consistent participants in the club.

People who feel like they would like to participate should post here in this thread. At the moment I think that Monday nights or Thursday nights would be the most conducive for productivity at the store. The goings-on for those two nights should not be disruptive to terrain club meetings.

Do I hear Steve volunteering?   This is something interesting to me but I know I don't have the time, or skills, to regularly dedicate.  I'd be willing to partake on a semi-semi-regular basis though doing odd-jobs and basic (i.e. unskilled) tasks to assist.

I would, as always, love to participate.  My terrain making skills are on par with my painting skills though, so hopefully I'd be able to improve enough with a little practice to make good pieces.  :P
It's the throwing phase now.

A terrain club is an excellent idea.  Time is what is lacking most for me, I am afraid.  But a rotating terrain club I may be able to help out.

If there is a core to the club with members meeting on a regular basis while people like myself helping out every other session, could work.

I would love to see a terrain night but with all the things I currently have going on I can not dedicate a reasonable amount of time to it.
I also am not experienced at building terrain.

I grabbed some funky bendable track from work and thought it'd be great terran, so I'm gonna give it to the store. It'd be either a metal hallway-type thing, or an entrenchment of some kind. Someone remind me it's in the car though please.   ::)

I think the answer is yes but the problem is nobody, who is interested, can commit to a night to do this on a regular basis.  And, on top of that, the willing do not have the skills but are eager to help in any way possible and to learn.

Hope I summed things up properly.  Does this answer your question Steve?  /me hopes

I am a quick study when it comes to techniqe. Any way if Friday or Saturday is used FNM doesnt take up the back room so maybe the club could gather there? I really want to get some more terrain made up but my scedual is very restricting since I work so much.  :(
