Dark Elveses

I've been working like crazy on my Dark Elves, in order to get them ready for Tacticon in a few weeks.  Lots of new models to paint, and they tend to take around an hour each.  Here's a shot of the spearmen I've been working on, as well as the five crossbows that are finished to a level I like.

Click on them for a bigger shot- you won't be able to see the highlights otherwise.

Here are the tournaments that I plan on playing in the near future:

'Ard Boyz Fantasy Prelims- Aug. 28
Tactic Con Warhammer 40k- Sep. 4
Tactic Con Warhammer Fantasy- Sep. 5
(If I qualify) 'Ard Boyz Fantasy Semi-Finals- Sep. 25
Clash for Colorado (Warmachine/Hordes)- TBD (last priority, unfortunately)

Guess we'll see what armies I take.  I've been working a ton on my Dark Elves and Blood Angels, but who knows?  My wolves are already finished, and it's easy to go down to 1850. 

Just a short blurb tonight, count on battle reports and likely pictures for each event.  Genghis should be fun, usually 40+ people at each tournament.

BoLSCON Tournament Report

Well, here it is, in all its beauty.  This writeup will contain all 3 days of my tournament, including 5 (very very short) warmachine reports, 7 40k reports, and my overall thoughts of the tournament.  Buckle in, because this is going to be a very long post.

Back from BoLSCON

Well I'm back!  I got in late last night, and now I have work in an hour.  I'm exhausted, but happy overall.  12 games later, I actually don't feel as burned out as I thought I would be.  I'm still kinda sick of 40k, but whatcha gonna do?

Anyways, this is just a 'don't worry, I'm working on a longer post' post, so you don't think I'm just being lazy.  Lots of pictures for my games (though not turn for turn, unfortunately).  6 great opponents in the 40k (because one I ended up playing twice in a row!) and a lot of fun (and educational!) games of Warmachine made the weekend a blast for me, though there were a few issues I had as well.  I'll talk about those a little later.

I ended up taking home some prize support (and not just random door prize stuff), but you'll have to read my bigger post to find out how exactly I did. 

Well, I'm off to eat, shave, and shower.  Back to living the dream.
