Our Take

Thank you to Gen Con and sponsors of this event. It was a really wonderful thing for my wife and I to do together. We each selected minis that could represent characters we played at the convention. Having these minis as souvenirs is a really tangible memory of the fun we had. We got our mini's on Sunday, the last day of the convention, and even though they must have been running low by that point we had a decent selection. Sunday was family day and they had a special table set up for people who had got in free, and families were taking advantage of it. It was really nice to see how well this was handled. Paying conventioneers had more spots and so the booth was able to accommodate more ticket holders than family day visitors, but still the visitors were provided the opportunity to get their free mini's too. Class act on the part of Gen Con.

Speial thanks to Reaper for supplying the paints, and to all the other sponsors who provided materials to make this event happen. Please let me know who all provided mini's so I can give credit.
