Oakydeer

New to Reaper Forums! Come say hi to a noob!

Recommended Posts

Hi there everyone! Oakydeer here, and I'm a very very new to the world of tabletop RPGS. I'd always heard of the magical game dungeons and dragons but was always intimidated by it and didn't know when or how to start.


 


But a month ago, I decided to take the plunge and gather my friends for our first DnD session, with me as the DM. And... we all became obsessed. So now, here I am, completelly engrossed in the world of tabletop RPGs and eager to start sculpting and painting my own figures!


 


I'm open to any advice from any of you wonderful veterans regarding anything, be it painting and sculpting, to game tips, to a simple friendly hello. Let's be friends! :>

Welcome to the forum, the hobby of miniature painting, and the fun that is tabletop RPGS!

 

First thing I'd do, is peruse the Tips/Advice section, particularly this thread. Then go check out the works in the show-off section of other hobbyists and ask questions, post your own works in progress, seek advice/comments/critiques, practice, practice, practice, and most of all.... HAVE FUN!

Oh wow you guys! Thank you SO so much for your quick AND kind response! I'm honestly not used to such open, welcoming communities! I can tell I'm going to have a great time here! 8D

Welcome to the Pond !  If the information you desire isn't here, someone will tell you where to find it.

You have entered the domain of a lot of helpfulness, knowledge, wisdom, and a generous dash of patience.

Put on your slippers, or go barefoot, and wander through the forums.  At the base of the main forum on the

right side are some interesting postings.  The most visited section is a mind blower.

Hard to imagine that these folks painted them.  You will learn a great deal from the WIP's, and the Show

off forum will make you go ::o:.  Enjoy, and I look forward to seeing you paint and post !

If you have questions, please ask. People here are plenty willing to share tips, advice, and recommendations.

 

Also, you may notice a much higher proportion of women members here than on most rpg-related sites. That's because Reaper fosters a family-friendly, welcoming environment for all.

Welcome to the forums and the hobby, deer! I love your name, it makes me imagine that you have little antlers. I do! :3

 

I'm a noob at D&D and painting too, the amazing thing about these forums is how all us noobs and vets get to mix around and get fun ideas and learn from each other.

 

There's a wealth of information here, and the forums are outstanding for their helpfulness and friendliness. ^_^

 

If you really want to get chatty, check out the Randomness thread. Lots of fun people to meet and talk to there! 

 

Edit: Your avatar is amazing! Did you do that Dia De Los Muertos makeup yourself?

I hate it when the forum eats my post...

 

WELCOME!

 

Mind your manners (or *BONK!* or a modbat may make an appearance), don't spill the coffee (or the barbarian will rage... maybe cry... no one wants to see a crying, raging barbarian), hide your bacon (from the wolves), don't lick your brush (lest you summon Pingo's wrath and a lecture), that smell is goblin (re: Buglips; since you're new you've no need to hide your vintage paints), that's a halo (not the One Ring) which you get once you achive Godlike status and enter the realm of Reapergaard, and...

 

HAVE FUN!

 

As suggested, read! Watch videos! Learn! We all have our own way of doing things, but there is a LOT of fantastic information to be gleaned from here.

 

ub3r will try to get you to empty your wallet on all the shiney. Watch out for that, but also note not to link directly to a website for selling stuff. It's teh Roolz.

 

Knarthex ub3r, and Thrym are awesome on info for basing. Pingo, too... she does lovely trees.

 

Talespinner's sculpting posts are things to watch. Mr. Andrew Pieper himself (sculpts for Reaper), and there are several other excellent sculptors in that forum.

 

Malefactus has the most whimsical, creative, fantastic imagination this side of Tim Burton.

 

Sirithiel does fantastic dragons and well worth looking at her WIPs for tips and ideas.

 

Pingo and Corporeal and Marsya and Wren and Citrine also have Show Offs well worth looking at and a few WIPs. Marsya has a Red Hair tutorial that is most excellent (WAY!).

 

Froggy is the Froggcident king. Conversions of mind boggling creativity.

 

I think that should give you a good start... :lol:

Yeah! I was actually wondering whether I should hide my gender at first... I've been part of communities where I was certainly shown a lot more respect as a "boy" than as myself. I'm SO glad to see that's not the case here. U u U

Nope, we welcome everyone. No discrimination here.

      Hi,
      I have the Razig Adept mini. Comes with a pair of hands gripping chains. Very cool. Trouble is, the right hand, all on its own accord, just flew out of my grip before I could secure it to its designated wrist and just threw itself into the void, never to be seen again. 
      I know, its not that small, I tore that whole place up in search of it. Where...How the....anyway, is it possible to get spare parts?

      I've been playing D&D for over a decade now, and while there are a lot of great terrain solutions for dungeon crawls, I always felt there wasn't a great option when it came to generic random encounters, like setting up camp for the night.
       
      As a player, and a DM these random encounters often lacked meaning because they didn't have the same customization as encounters core to the campaign. So I decided to come up with a solution that was simple for a DM, and that made the encounter more meaningful for the player.
       
      I made a 36” by 24” iron rubber base on which you can layer smaller magnetic terrain. For a DM It takes second to throw some trees, rocks, and other terrain down to make the scenario unique. Then your players can quickly arrange their tents, wagons and other equipment in thoughtful ways that make random encounters more meaningful.
       
      There is 44 pieces of double sided magnetic terrain, so you can run pretty much any random encounter in the wilderness that you can think of.
       
      If this sounds like something you'd use check out the kickstarter for more information.

      I love feedback so please let me know what you think of the product. I designed it how I would want to use it, so if you feel like something's lacking, or should be changes Id like to know.

      So you have seen the minis but what about the rules doc? Well, here is just one example of the art quality thanks to the incredible talents of April Prime! Amazingly, this is still work in progress, but she is working on art for every dog and a few bonus pieces as well....hmmm..maybe art prints should be available...


      Here's a small piece of Dungeons and Doggies fiction to enjoy! Every mini will have an associated 'icon character' pre generated in the rules pack,and for the Cleric role we have Cerysse, gentle but determined protector of her friends. Many thanks to Kate, our writer, for providing this and many other story pieces for the project! We will follow up with a rules preview for the Companion Domain soon!

      We just launched our campaign for awesome gargantuan dragons, they are 20 cm high, they will look huge compared to 32mm miniatures, the design of every dragon is also unique and different.

      We hope you can join us on this draconic adventure!
