One of the wonderful aspects of Adepticon is Reaper's Paint & Take area. Here attendees can choose a model, have a seat, and paint up their mini right here. It's great to see experienced hobbies showing newbies the ropes. Sometimes this booth is a person's first go at painting.

Fantastic Crystal Brush entries. I would love to see more. The Swamp Monster in the blog at 18:56 looks brilliant… is it scratch built, kit bashed or a kit off the shelf? Do the entrants give any details about the manufacturer that you can get privy of? Are these amateurs or professionals because if they are not the former they should consider becoming the latter. Inspirational.
