  1. Ok, newb question who really wishes he'd gone ahead and bought the rulebook at RC.... If I were to get the core set + the rulebook addon, will that be enough for me + a buddy to play reasonably enjoyable starter games? Or are there units/models that would be important to have to really get the depth (Not worried about really competitive lists/seeing other units at first, I can add to it if we're enjoying things after that.)

    ReaperCon 2019 -- Classes I Would Take

    If they manage to get Anthony Rodriguez back next year I would highly recommend taking either his NMM class or at least chatting with him in the painters area a little.

    clear-coating bones

    Liquitex Matte Varnish works really well for me. I can also thin it about 2:1 with clean water and spray it through my brush when I'm in the mood.

    ReaperCon 2019 -- Classes I Would Take

    a hands-on airbrush class would be very interesting to me... not sure what kind of logistics would be involved in that though....

    Paint Track Apps?

    Just wanted to chime in and say that I'm loving the app and I found the free version covered all my needs, but I bought the full version because I felt that your dedication to the app and the community was above and beyond and I very much appreciate that.

    So... who's ready for ReaperCon 2019?

    Seems that the classes were well attended too, loads were sold out, so a lot of interest there.

    So... who's ready for ReaperCon 2019?

    The only thing I heard (and I asked several reaper people what they could tell me about it) was that next year was the same weekend because it was already contracted with the venue and they weren't sure what they would do after that.
  8. Something along the lines of the Battleguard Golem Magus?

    ReaperCon 2018 Review

    a few added thoughts FANTASTIC Staff and volunteers. Reaper Miniatures and Reapercon are both labors of love and it shows. Everyone was great to interact with (and I know us attendees could get very trying and old after a while) and even the folks at the registration desk (who I know were having a rough weekend) still managed to keep smiles on their faces. Thank you for what you do. On the subject of registration, I really hate to jump on the Growtix dogpile, I found it clunky and awkward and in need of improvement, but eventually usable. However I didn't get left out in the cold not actually registered for a class I thought I was like some people so I don't have much to add there. I know that Reaper is aware of the problem and is working with GT to improve the experience. Classes - one of the highlights of Reapercon to me. Great instructors, very patient and understanding. I signed up for one a day, I might do more next year. I also brought a ton of extra stuff with me, most of the classes I took that needed brushes specified to bring them, (at least I thought so) though there were people still without, so not sure how to address that. I'm going to pack extras next year so I can share. The vendor hall was great, I love that there was room between the booths and the vendors there were great to interact with. I second the sentiment of not just walking up to a vendor and asking for a punch, the whole point of the cards was to give them an opportunity to show off their product. I even like that the vendor area was 'part of' the main event space, just off from the open painting area, making it easy to hop over and grab something you think of that you wanted (Maybe my wallet thinks that was a bad thing, but he and I aren't talking right now...) On the subject of the open painting area - any chance it might be possible to set up 'public' lighting? Maybe at least on the take and paint table? The lighting in the ballroom isn't great for painting. I know lots of people brought their own lighting rigs, but there are also a lot of people very new to the hobby, it might be a good opportunity for them to see what an advantage good lighting is. I know I met a ton of people who said this was their first time painting.... I would have loved to see more events up on the main stage. Maybe things like a few painting or sculpting demos from some of the pros (Like what they were doing at their workstations but up on the big screens as a general showcase type of thing). maybe some of the video interviews could be done over loudspeaker or something so everyone could enjoy. Celebrity Hobby Hijinks could be fun. Since bones 4 is coming out in February, maybe a presentation with the first look at what would be in store for Bones 5?

    Tagging or Name problems v2

    In browsing through some of the larger figures, I'm noticing that there is a 72mm tag, but not a 54mm tag....

    Starting with NMM

    so after taking 3 different NMM classes this past weekend, I'm eager to really work on the process. Started in with 77077: Finari, Female Paladin. Only done the breast plate so far, and I need to clean up the edges a little, but so far I like how it's going.
