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.

      So.  At the start of Reapercon live 2020, my hobby room was a semi organized space, that wasn't really planned out.  I also had not taught online so I had to create an area to do that.  This meant shuffling things around to clear up space for a PC, cameras, class supplies etc.  Post Reapercon I was left with a huge mess, as more shuffling occurred to not only teach, but to take a few courses.  Here are a few shots of my space on the last day of Reapercon...


      So... one of my sons had moved out in mid 2019... he had left his room like this.  I called it his long term storage

      Thus began a journey to make a space that would be better suited for painting, sculpting, teaching and storing the hoard that is my backlog.  First few days were just getting his stuff out and repainting the room.









      Then, my wife helped me with refinishing the floor



      Then Saturday, I started moving every thing up to the new space...
      Lots of stuff

      I notice both Army Painter and Vallejo are selling sets of paints with bottles about half the size of their normal paints.  (Nolzur's Marvelous Pigments and Whiz kids Preminum Paints)
       
        I generally like that approach.
       
        It provides an opportunity to get a variety of paint colors at a lower price.  Vallejo Whiz kids  sets consist of 40 paints in a plastic case for about $70. I know that there are many colors I like to have handy although I don't use them a lot so a 8 ml  bottle would  be more than enough. And, if I use some of the colors a lot, I can get a regular size bottle when the small bottle is gone.
       
        The Va!!ejo sets consists of Game Color but the AP sets consists not only of repackaged Warpaints but several unique colors that I believe are only available as part of the set so it really is not practical to replace those colors when the small bottle is gone.
       
      But, alas, as much as I like the packaging idea, the paints are Gsme Color which I don't at all and Warpaintt which I don't like as well as Reaper or Citadel.  Still I am hoping the idea catches on.

      So, I recently purchased the "Nolzur's Marvelous Pigments Monsters Paint Set". Came with a bunch of Army Painter washes and paints and yadda yadda yadda...
       
      But it also came with this neat Owlbear mini, which is what I have to share with you guys today!
       
      First eyes I ever successfully painted. But in my defense, I'd only ever tried on minis with smallish eyes, which was NOT the brightest idea I'd ever had. The left eye turned out really good in my opinion, but the right one was a bit messy.
       
      I also need to do so me touch-up work on the base. I got a bit careless with the wash, and uh... Yeeeeah.
       
      Lastly and leastly, I didn't upload an outdoor picture as I usually do. That'll probably come later, provided I don't forget.

      Hi everyone, 
       
      Does anyone know of a module or resource that has a pre made undersea city or palace?  One of my group paying saltmarsh took up the sea elf Prince when his character drowned  and then promised the support of his city.  Now the party wants to visit the city and negotiate for those resources.  I want them to have a good time and have at least the trappings of a city around them but I don't want to build and populate an entire city in a week or 2 for a 1 week adventure that could, potentially become a rerunning resource but might not.
       
      Does anyone know of a module or supplement for an Atlantis or similar city below the waves?
