    Reapercon 2019 Class Reviews

    Here’s my feedback on classes from a first time attendee. Reaper U: Beginner Blending (Cocanour) - I wish I had had a class like this when I first started out painting. I spent so much time watching YouTube videos to try and understand how people got such nice transitions of color, etc. I get it now and am most appreciative. The instructor was great and he broke the concept down to a degree I could finally understand it. He demonstrated it and then went around and spent time with each person showing them how to smooth out their transitions, etc. It was so worth the money spent. I wish it had been longer and I think I would have liked a handout. Reaper U: Layering Basics (Beckley) – I have nothing but good things to say on this one too. She was fantastic and made the rounds to everybody to make sure we were understanding. Mojo snoring through the class at her feet just made the class even more spectacular. I wish it had been longer. Well worth the money. Reaper U Night Owl: Fun with Shiny Paint! (Cowles) – After having watched OneBoot paint her shineys in her WIP threads on the forums I was excited to get a spot. I think I expected it to just be a fun class with painting metallic but I got a lot more out of it and learned more then I realized. I came away with a better understanding that the base color beneath the metallic might actually be more important than the metallic itself. Who knew? I didn’t. Loved it and would definitely take it again. Useful handout! Reaper U: Foolproof Non Metallic Metal (Rodriguez) - Great basic class for someone like me. I had a hard time seeing his demonstration with everyone crowded around him (I’m super short) but we had plenty of time to practice. I do wish he had gotten up and went around more to each of us instead of us having to come to him. I found myself delaying going up to him with questions because he had a line of others and then I’d forget what I wanted to ask him. It was still a good class and worth the money to attend. Useful handout! Reaper U Night Owl: Intermediate Basing for Miniatures and Models (Stahl) – Like the others who have left feedback, this one was a disappointment to me. I was in the class less than an hour and left feeling disappointed. There was some conversation on tools and items to buy for sculpting, but that was really it. It felt rushed and there just didn’t seem to be any effort put into it. It definitely wasn’t an intermediate class at all. Reaper U: Blingin' Out Your NMM (Lovejoy) – I was excited for this one and then majorly disappointed. It didn’t feel like this guy wanted to be in the class at all. He spent a lot of time talking but with no handouts (emailed after class) it just became hard to follow. It felt to me like he wanted to be anywhere but there with his lack of interest in what was going on. He made quick passes down everyone painting, but that was it. I don’t feel like I accomplished or learned anything. I would not take the class again and I don’t feel like it was worth the money. You win some and you lose some. Overall I was happy with my first Reapercon (even if I'm on day 10 of the con crud)!

    In that update was this statement: This catdragon will be given for free if you have a certain card completely stamped at various retailers booths. What card? What stamps?
