    ReaperCon VIP Resin

    Just finished this mini I picked up at ReaperCon. I have some youngish kids so I removed the severed Vampire Head and add a gun (which I got in my ReaperCon Swag Bag:). Not the best pictures, tried using an actual camera instead of my phone and don't really like the results, probably going back to my iPhone for future minis.

    SSL on Reaper's sites

    Agreed - SSL is a must for pretty much an site that uses Usernames and Passwords.

    Reaper's YouTube Problem

    I am glad to hear this. I look forward to seeing more content. Hopefully they will have all kinds of videos, Interviews, Tutorials, Guides, News and Reviews. Thanks, I have been experimenting with other brands. Reaper is my go-to for most colors, as well, but I have the Minitaire Ghost Tints, some Vallejo paints, Army Painter Washes, and quite a few of GW Textures and Technical Paints. I also picked up some Scalecolor at ReaperCon. All of which I first found out about and watch them being used on YouTube. I am still building my collection and appreciate the insight. I Agree.

    Reaper's YouTube Problem

    And that is what I do. The point being, when I am watching a painter give a tutorial on the mini they are painting they say "I am using GW's Evil Sunz Scarlet" or "Vallejo's Scarlet Red" or even "Army Painter's Dragon Red", as a new painter I am going to think "Wow this guy really knows his stuff, I should be using the paints he uses". Legitimately the only reason I went with Reaper as my primary brand was because I live in Texas and they are made in Texas (support the local economy). It really feel like a missed opportunity that Reaper isn't doing more to bring new painters in as customers. I maybe off base, it could be that Reaper is primarily a Minis company that happens to make paint, so they are more focused on the mini side. If that's the case, that's fine. Just thought I would point out the perspective of a new painter just picking up the hobby and what my experience has been.

    Reaper's YouTube Problem

    The conversation has started to shift in a direction that was not my focus. AGP isn’t really the problem, nothing can be done to remove his negative review. My post was more questioning if Reaper has any plans to become more agressive with their YouTube marketing. If Reaper gets more agressive with Marketing to YouTube the AGP video will get pushed down. The term that I searched is “Reaper Paints” with a ‘S’, without the ‘S’ it shows up 8th for me as well. The point being, as a new painter, it feels like Reaper has completely ignored YouTube. The fact that an 8 year old video shows up at all is evidence that of that. YouTube is an excellent tool for learning more about the hobby and if Reaper really is ignoring YouTube that seems very short sighted. So my question is, Has Reaper really ignored the platform or am I just not seeing the YouTube painters that are using Reaper Paints? *Edited for spelling

    Reaper's YouTube Problem

    So, I just started painting this year. Like most new painters I get a lot of my information from YouTube. That is what I would like to discuss in regards to Reaper Paints. Reaper has a YouTube Problem. When I go to YouTube and Type in "Reaper Paints" the 3rd guy down is AGProductionsinc and a video that is 8 years old. I don't know who he is or what the his story is but It's pretty clear that he had/has a personal ax to grind against Reaper for some reason. The Problem is that, as far as I can find, Reaper doesn't have much of a presence on YouTube. I know there's the Reaper Channel but their isn't a lot of videos and not many of those are painting videos. Very few painters on YouTube that I have been able to find talk about or use Reaper Paints. So as new painter trying to learn more about the hobby it's more challenging to find people using Reaper Paints and very easy to find this one guy who hates Reaper Paints. I have easily found painters using GW, Vallejo and P3, but Reaper is a distant 4th when it comes to YouTube. Has Reaper considered sponsoring some painters or expanding their YouTube presence?

    Desk Lamp?

    After seeing the LED lamps at ReaperCon it got me thinking about getting an LED lamp. I would just run out and get a couple of the lamps they had at ReaperCon but I have limited desk space and really need something to attach to the edge of the desk to not take up much table top space. I am currently looks at something like [link removed]. Anyone have any suggestions on LED Desk Lamps?
