Most of you have heard me talk about the paint and take that my husband and I run for our local convention. It is sponsored by the local high school game club and held in the gym. Thanks to donations from local gamers, and people at Reapercon we are able to offer this event completely free to the kids (and their parents) who attend. Here are some photos of the many figures that were painted this weekend. As you can see the little dragons and fairies, and mouslings are very popular with the kids. We had a greater number of kids this year for which this was their first time at a game con, and their first time painting a mini.
Like several other people on these boards, I am a recent addition. I came here through a happy coincidence of timing which subsequently led me to Reaper's Kickstarter, but I gather for a lot of people it was the other way around. The Kickstarter, anyway, seems to have had an effect on the Reaper forums. I'm sort of curious to know how large an effect the Kickstarter has had. Are the boards noticeably more active now than they were, say, last spring? Are there many new faces? How have things changed? Who are the old-timers, and do they mind us parvenus? Sorry if I'm being pesty. This wasn't covered in the FAQs.
