With the announcement of the HGI block being filled up for RCon this year, thought I'd I ask where everyone will be staying for the con this year. Helps with getting together afterwards or even during the Con. I'll be staying at Hilton Garden Inn (HGI) this year.
The ReaperCon painting competition is open to miniatures and models from all companies, In light of that fact we have started to invite other miniature manufacturers to provide prizes for the best painted version of their products at the show. In 2015 we had the following manufacturers provide prizes for the best painted versions of their company's miniatures: Red Box Games, Dark Sword Miniatures, DGS, Hasslefree Miniatures and Secret Weapon Miniatures. I will use this thread to let folks know which manufacturers will be providing prizes in addition to those you can earn when entering the ReaperCon 2016 Painting Competition. I'll update this first post with additions to the list as we get closer to the con. 2016 Manufacturer Awards List: Dark Sword Miniatures - Jim is really expanding his ReaperCon Support this year Dark Sword Diorama $150 in Dark Sword Online Store Credit for Best Overall Dark Sword Diorama $100 in Dark Sword Online Store Credit for 2nd Place Dark Sword Diorama Dark Sword Single Miniatures $150 in Dark Sword Online Store Credit for Best Overall Dark Sword Single Miniature $100 in Dark Sword Online Store Credit for 2nd Place Dark Sword Single Miniature Ares Mythologic Best Ares Miniature New product to be given out at the show Best Draconia Miniature New product to be given out at the show I'll provide further details when I can.

Like last year, this thread is to find roommates and transit. Being the con isn't at the hotel rides may be more important. My situation: Room full at 4 Wednesday through Monday. Rides unknown as flights not booked, but looking at noonish arrival Wednesday, into dfw, out if dfw Sunday around 7, maybe Monday if I can get the time off then. Either way I'll need help with transit if possible. On your marks...get set...
