    Reapercon 2019 Class Reviews

    Thanks I really appreciate that. One thing I really love about this con and the forums is how accessible people are, and how much they are willing to share what they know with others. I am a very "hands on" person and learn best by doing. So I feel like I got more out of the classes where we did a lot painting compared to watching and trying to keep notes. But I take my hat off to all the instructors who donated their time over the weekend to help us. Thank you all

    Safe arrivals!

    after 13 and a half hours of mostly boring driving (once I got out of the Dallas area), finally home. Great trip, met lots of cool people and heard much advice and good wisdom about how to improve my painting, but it's nice to be home

    Reapercon 2019 Class Reviews

    I had one favorite class - Blending by Ian Markon. No, wait, there were two favorite classes, blending and shiny paint by Lauren Cowles. What about aging and weathering? Oh, all right, I had three favorite classes, blending, shiny paint, and aging and weathering by David Cecil. That's all, just three favorite classes :) I was exposed to a huge amount of information in all my classes, and if I can remember ten percent of what I was exposed to I would have learned a lot here.
  5. Ditto for me, thanks for a fun time, even though I missed the end. I tend to get more quiet as a group becomes larger, but it was good meeting you guys and rolling some dice
  6. I'm not going to make it tonight ☹️ I'm beat. Going to get some food and go to bed. Thanks for letting me play, I really enjoyed it

    So... who's ready for ReaperCon 2019?

    My plan was to drive about 8 hours, get a good night's sleep, then go the rest of the way, about 4 hours. 8 turned into 9 1/2, but had a nice dinner and got some cool gifts for my family and now it's 3 a.m. and I am wide awake watching lightning and can't wait to finish the trip. Looking forward to meeting everyone

    QR number?! You mean the print-outs with the weird scan blocks isn't good enough? Good to know that now, since I am getting on the road in the morning. I have a huge stack of stuff I have printed, but not seeing anything with a QR number on it. Got to look again. Nice to know that people putting out information take it for granted that everyone watches Reaper live :( Just looked back through my emails. Is this QR number coming from growtix? Not seeing it anywhere. really not happy about this

    Haven't played 7thSea in a long time, and not the new version at all. Would love to get into that

    Wednesday Evening - Post Pizza Dungeon Gaming?

    I know this is mostly about RPG's, but if anyone is interested I will bring the board game "Red Neck Life".

    Games and gaming

    I used to avoid the game because it takes so long, but there is a rule in there I had never noticed that speeds the game up somewhat. Every time a person lands on an unowned property and doesn't buy it, the bank has to auction it to the highest bidder. I have played for decades and never knew that but it makes a difference in how long a game can take

    Some General Advice for Contest Entries

    I know I have a lot to learn about painting, but if I never get to the level of some of these truly gifted painters I can live with that. To me painting is like bowling. I have been bowling for decades, and I have an acceptable average (low 140's). I know I never will be a pro bowler, and will never bowl a perfect game, but I still love to sling the ball. A few times people have approached me about joining a league but I have always said "NO" because people on leagues tend to take the game so seriously it takes the fun out of it. If it got to the point where I really cared about my score and got mad when I didn't do well, it would be time to find another interest to pursue. The same with painting. If I get to the point where I am getting mad because I can't paint well enough or win awards, it's time to quit.

    So true, like everything else you only hear about the bad. I wish I could afford a little plane I could fly myself to these events. Maybe one day after I win the lottery. Gotta remember to play it first :)

    So... who's ready for ReaperCon 2019?

    I hear so many horror stories about people flying commercial and getting stranded or really delayed. Makes me never want to fly commercial. I am taking my time driving, stopping after about 8 hours and finishing the drive the next day, about 4 hours I think.

    Some General Advice for Contest Entries

    That's it exactly. I know my "talent" is nowhere near lots of other people and never will be, and I am cool with that. I still have fun painting and I am not going to get fame or glory so be it. I enjoy it, and to me that is what it's all about

    Some General Advice for Contest Entries

    Just finished looking through the winners from last year, wow. I was hoping for a bronze with the entry I have ready for this year, but I will be lucky to get stock. I have so far to go :)

    So... who's ready for ReaperCon 2019?

    :) I so know what you mean. This will be my first vacation in two and a half years, and I am so ready. Actually have an entry almost ready for the painting contest. I say almost because I dropped it the other night and now I have to touch up where it hit the concrete floor

    Games and gaming

    I used to play a lot of the old version of 7th sea and would love to play old or new, but it would probably have to be an informal late night event for me. Did you have any particular times in mind? I am planning on arriving on Wednesday and leaving Monday

    I thought I had seen a schedule of factory tours, but I can't find it. Does anyone know if there are tours on Sunday? If so, I might cancel the game I was going to run so I can do that instead
