Photodump and AAR: Gencon 2013 (Heavy picture warning)

So I went to Gencon last weekend. It was my first time there, and my biggest convention to date with Historicon being a very, very, very, small, distant, tiny second. Ten hours in the car later...
We arrive at the Crossroads of Cornfields and Forests
Joe, who was driving up with me, made the comment that Indiana looks like a wargaming table. There's clear, concise lines where the woods clearly start and end. A random house scattered here and there. Hills that make no bearing on visibility at all. And no water features that we could see from the road.

Live from GenCon: The new DZC stuff

Snapped up a few pics this morning. Posting pictures from the Chromebook with the bogged down wifi here is pretty tedious, so I apoligize for the quality and weird orientation on some.
Monorail and some resistance vehicles

Horses, Horses, Horses, and Not Horses...

I guess you could say I like painting horses. I did grow up on a horse farm. Maybe that has something to do with it...

EDIT: You know, I always find things wrong when I post up pictures. Blowing the pictures up to the size shown on the blog really brings some things out that I totally did not see early. It appears on some of the 15s, static grass and flock had gotten on to the figures before varnishing, so now I get to work on remove that...hooray!

First up we have some Polish Lancers. These are the Forged in Battle models. Some folks may remember that I already have (had) an EW Polish Lancer Army. Well, I sold that at the last swap meet because I couldn't stand the fact that the arms were separate pieces and kept breaking off. So here's to round two!

Bolt Action: Kubus Improvised Armor Car

For my upcoming AK project. 1/48 scale model kit from Japan. Going to use the OT-26 rules for it as a captured vehicle in the Partisans list.

In Her Majesty's Name: Random Tank

Found this random tank at Historicon. It was only $20 so figured I may as well grab it and paint it up incase I ever get around to playing IHMN.

By Fire and Sword - First Game and Impressions

I'm in love.

Frank and I played two games tonight - both at the 5-point Skirmish level.

BFAS Swedish Skirmish Starter Box: Round Two

Nothing new here, just a second go at some of the BFAS Swedish units I picked up. After musing over the pictures online in all of the enlarged glory (that's what she said!) I decided I really wasn't happy with them.
