Gencon Painting Awards
Well, I'm back from Gencon, and every year it takes me a little while to get through all of the blogging that I want to do. This year is no different, so expect me to talk about little else for about a week. First off- the Gencon Indy Miniatures Painting Competition. This year, the competition was good to me, and I walked away with a first place and third place: Here's a Ramos crew that I painted up that won the Unit category. Wyrd miniatures wasn't adding their prize support to the competition this year (which is odd for them, it really is). However, when I stopped by their booth to show off my trophy, there was a little bit of stealth prize support. I'll show that one off when I get it painted. I also won third place in the Large Miniatures category with my Super Dungeon Explore Rex: I'll get photos of him without glare soon. I think it will have to be followed by a write up on how I painted the bruises and cuts. Overall, the competition was pretty tight, and I got some pointers from Amy Steppman about how I could improve my entries for next year. I already have a lot of ideas brewing.
