To those of you at Reapercon,


Came to the con to RPG and hang out with friends, ended up so impressed with the level of artistry possible that I came home with loads of paints and an itch to learn to paint proper-like. I'm really impressed with what I saw in competition. Great work, all of you!


I've always looked at painting minis as a way to get them into an RPG setting, nothing more, so anything ive done is marginal at best. But to shoot for something truly beautiful and artistic? I never knew! That's the goal! Your works were inspiring. 


Also, I really enjoyed how friendly everyone was. I was preparing myself for an elitist attitude from the 'higher level' painters. I was so wrong! From @OneBoot and her encouraging painting tips, Ludo's insane speed paint (curse you hecklers!), a very approachable artist's row, all the Reaper staff, Kevin's board game library (Terraforming Mars FTW!), and @LordDave with hands down the best display of DM craft I've ever seen (I've thought about that game all weekend), I thoroughly enjoyed the con.


I look forward to painting and soaking up the knowledge on the forum and hope to tap into the collective brain for some tips as I begin on a painters journey. I know nothing.


Kenneth, if you're on the forum, let me know so we can keep in touch. 


Well met, all.



P.S. If any of you find River Tam, let me know?

wow, "best display of dms craft..." thank you.  that is a great compliment!!

You poor, doomed soul.


I mean...

Welcome! There is nothing wrong here! You will not be sucked into an infinite rabbit hole of hobby madness.


You say that like it would be a bad thing
