|Farseer Re-Rolls and I at The Tilted Kilt|
Well I am semi recovered from the weekend. Adepticon 2012 was a blast. The Battle Force contest was a rousing success. Congratulations to Mark D from the Ohio Hammer Podcast for taking home the top prize. Apparently he was dead set on killing Rhellion as he was fighting it out in most of the major fantasy events. We had 326 entries which was more than double last year. Mother of God did we get hammered.
I also got to sit down and chat with Mr. Paulson himself. We chatted about the legal woes of being a 3rd party miniature maker. He eluded to some new stuff coming out in the near future. Including a line of skull bots hailing from the land of Rifts. I also saw A nice conversion of a Talos which The Mad Trucker picked up.
|Talos Arm Conversion. The arms may look familiar to some.|
We did some partying as well as played a ton of 40K. I got to sit down with the development Manager of Privateer Press, D.C. and have a nice chat while were having some drinks in one of the DFG rooms. He had been wrangled into escorting the lovely Anna form the Cool Mini Or Not booth to our little room shindig. Hey if I was a woman I would have too if a bunch of DFG guys invited me to a room party. I was convinced into giving Warmachine another try. Well no war machine proper, rather convinced I might like Hordes better. So I have a Circle Of Orobos box to give it another go.

I also picked up a Wraith Seer as well as a coveted Forgeworld Avatar. Look for some project updates soon as it would seem the painting bug has finally bit again. That and me giving an Oath Of Moment to OST to do it. Samsquatch Monster has also laid down the “KP a week” challenge. SO basically we have to churn out a Kill Point a week. I look forward to the challenge and running a campaign this summer against his Elysian's. He finally decided to pick up the army. SO we will be running the IA 11 campaign this summer.
I am feeling very inspired. Especially after witnessing Wolfson beat CVintons Necrons over the weekend. He is an old school Eldar player like myself and it was nice meeting him for the first time. OST has talked about him a lot.
I also want to give a shout to a local player you may know. Bill Kim, aka Centurian99 on Daka Daka, made it to the top 16 of the GT. Nicely done sir.
Well enjoy the candid pics from around the convention.
Until Next time...................
