Saturday was the Grand Opening tourney at EPIC LOOT I headed down to spend the day throwing dice and not really knowing what to expect. So before we get into the tourney details here are some shots of the store and the table's with terrain for the event. There was a good amount of terrain per table with a good mixture of LOS blocking, area, and all types so that was nice.
Let's get back into the swing of things and start off with another Inspire post, expect these a little more often in the future. As there are so many amazing models out there done to a level that makes me want to paint to a higher standard. This one is from Jolly Roger Studio who I believe does commission work.
I have no idea what this model is from it looks great though. If you like the work go ahead check out some of the other stuff on the site. All rights and such belong to the owner and guys at Jolly Roger.

DFK! finally back in the hizzouse. Holy Dearth of Posts, Batman! Getting married totally takes away from blogging time.
Anyway, hopefully I'll be hitting you with a slew of posts in the next couple weeks to help give Drkmorals a break. I need to wrap up that old Facts on the Ground Series. I wanna do a belated "entry" to the favorite mini contest Drkmorals posted about here. I need to do Gamesday Coverage, and I need to talk Epic Space Nuns.
Oh, that's right, Gamesday USA. It's this Saturday, and for the first time ever I'm going. Three friends and I decided to go see what all the hubbub was about and make the trip this year, given that the cost is pretty low, all around. Only one of the four of us has ever been to GD, and for him it's been many years. We're heading up to Chi-town Friday, having taken off work and switched on-call weekends with my peer.
None of us are planning any gaming this year, we want plenty of time to take in the event, participate in activities, and hassle the developers for sneak peeks of the Future. Hopefully may find some decent Forgeworld product, as I have been saving up my "allocation" of purchases for this event. I intend to take a camera and get you all some insider footage, but beware I'm a bit of a bad photographer.
Keep an eye out for posts coming soon, it's good to be back, ya'llz.

It was a pretty laid back type event and the contenders all weighed in at 1500 points. The Meta broke down to something like this I believe

"You have seen all the news and pictures in the past weeks, and we thank you for all your emails and excitement, we now present you the first of many of our Gen Con Indy releases at the CMON booth # 849

Easily a must stop by location. They also have no released the Hell Dorado rule book the cover is mixed in below with the normal stew of pictures. Everything is new or back in stock and as always all rights to Cool Mini or Not.

So many great posts go unnoticed online I am just doing my part to give a little extra 15 minutes of spotlight to a handful a week. A little bonus for being a FTW member and my way of helping out a bit with the awesome blog roll he is running. Disclaimer I wasn't asked to do this at all just trying to add something else positive to our online community. So let's see what turned up this week.

In the future there is only WAR.... and Zombies. Zombieland teaches us so many life lessons that can be useful to us in real life both when surviving a zombie holocaust and possibly just getting through Monday depending on who you work with. Let's take a moment to apply some of this great knowledge to the tabletop.

here. I was able to get one painted and complete so I thought I would share a little progress with you guys online. I wanted something very Conan feeling with this one so I went with skin tones to show that he grew into this large critter thing once the Chaos Gods starting blessing him for his actions and he has shed most his armor at this point for the sake of combat. I mean who doesn't want to kill things in combat right? Took some quick snapshots outside. I did the wings and the trophy racks separate so I can swap them depending on my mood. My last prince the wings are permy and I wanted to have some more options this time around so I don't have to own 6 of these things but still play what I want.

ForgeWorld staying true to their namesake has just about been releasing a new model of some type a week for some time now. This week is no different. So let's take a look at the new offerings from our favorite reason to over pay for Resin in fun shapes.

Here is the plan to start I am going to be using my blog roll over on the FTW site. I like FTW and it looks like for the most part it is a one man show so this is me taking the initiative and helping out. We will do a few of these and if it seems to be going well we will slowly expand what content we are choosing from. I say we not because I have a mouse in my pocket but because I am going to rope, bother, and pester DFK into helping me in the near future as soon as I figure out a more streamlined way to do this. =) (That's your warning buddy) So to start out I am randomly choosing about 25 posts from the blog roll number 2 since that is the roll I landed in. Then I will go through those blogs and the last couple posts they did and post up some highlights from what I found. I won't be grabbing any blogs that haven't posted for awhile though so only newer content.
So without further waiting I present the Emperor's Chosen wk 1.. please hold your applause until the end.

Centerville OH 45458.
As part of the grand opening this month on July 30th they will be hosting a 40k Tourney. Can't have too many local events so that is a plus I think. First off let's throw some pictures of the new location up to take a look at.

Every time I think I might be getting to be a average painter or maybe slightly above average some model comes along that reminds me that I am pretty low on the scale over all. It's like playing basketball after work but you live next to Jordan and every day he laughs and shouts to keep practicing. I ran across this just the other day thought I would share the work and hopefully inspire those of you that haven't seen it before.

If your going to be there keep a eye for him if you haven't met him and intro yourself and tell him you like/hate his work. lol . Anyway he agreed to also play along and answer a few questions about things so I'll let him speak for himself.
