To kick off his Grand Opening, Mike had a 2000 Point-three game, One day event. I originally wasn't able to get a slot to play, as the event sold out quickly, but went up on a whim, on the stand by list, hoping to squeeze in and play some games. A risky prospect considering it's an eighty-five mile drive but what the hell. In the end, I'm glad I did, I was able to get a slot and play.
I took my Death Wing, and had a great time, seeing some old friends, and some new faces. The terrain was great, especially considering the store is brand new, Mike really put in a lot of time and effort to ensure his opening day was a great event.
I ended up going 2 wins and 1 loss, losing to my buddy Paul and his incredibly tough IG force. I did however manage two wins, one against Tyranids and the other against Orks. I also took the award for having the most Kill Points at the end of the Tournament, (Mike has a name for it, but I can't remember what he called the award). Prize support was great considering the price of the Tournament, and that it was a one day event, I walked away with a nifty little trophy and a 25.00 gift certificate to put towards anything in the store.
Above we have Belial surrounded by a Orky Dread and a bunch of Kans, Belial had an unusually good day yesterday, and wasn't behaving like his normal whimpish self...
I will most certainly be adding the "Out of the Box" Store to my list of places to visit for events, and day trips.
Thanks Mike for a great day!
Even though I have been busy, I have been managing to squeeze in a little hobby time. Doing some work here and there on my Warriors of Chaos Fantasy project, and what has become my next 40k project, the Elysian Drop Troops.
So far, I have a ten man squad of Veterans painted, below you can see the paint scheme I have selected. I know the picture quality isn't the best, but it's been so long since I've posted a real update, I wanted to get something on the blog to show.
I am currently putting together a second squad, and have made a purchase of some more FW stuff to try and flesh out the army.
I have also done a few conversions using the Mantic Corporation miniatures which I think have turned out fairly well, I will get some shots up of these guys along with some better WIP pictures when I have more time.
I do want to thank everyone for reading, and I'll be posting again real soon...
