State of the 'faux

I ran my first tournament on all the terrain I have been working on for the last couple months. It isn't important that I only needed half of the tables I have finished so far. It went well, I met a new player, talked into some broken Neberborn models for his Pandora crew, I saw a friend I haven't seen in a while, and I gave away a (unpainted) Sue model.(I know, slacking, but I have a lot to finish by Genghiscon)

Puppet Wars!!!!!

I managed to play TWO games of Puppet Wars on Saturday. One against Matt, Patrick, and Patton, the other swapped Matt for Dylan. I enjoyed both games, though the second one took much longer, even ignoring the lunch break in the middle.

The Challenge!

A couple weeks ago I challenged Shaffer to a paint contest. I could finish my new Puppet Wars board game minis before he finished his Space Hulk minis. He has had his far longer and is pretty far on his Space Marines, but hasn't started on the Genestealers. The bet was the money he owed me versus all his Black Reach terminators. It is kinda win win for me. I either get free terminators or I finally get to play Space Hulk and I'm going to paint my puppets either way. However, I'm not sure that Mike isn't cool with just giving me his terminators, making the whole thing null. Ah, well, they are my Iron Man painting minis, so I should know by February.

Road to the con 2012

Since I can't seem to get in a game on it, I thought I would post some shots of my graveyard board in all its completed glory.

State of the Tau

Another slow holiday weekend at Hobby Town, but I did manage to get a game in against Troy. We played Scenario 3 from the preliminary missions for Genghiscon. Primary was seize ground, 5 objectives; secondary was kill points; tertiary was getting infantry into opponents zone. Deployment was pitched battle.
