Another year has come and gone

Useless personal stats from this years Gencon...

  • Traveled by car 140 miles between my home on the Southeast side of town to the con.
  • Spent over $300 in the exhibit hall!  (That's a personal record, purchase reviews coming soon).
  • Ran 5 Space Hulk missions, win for the stealers for all the games (It is a 'Desperate battle').
  • Took over 600 pictures, which demonstrated to me that white balance is my enemy!
  • Bolstered my Genestealer forces with 25 additional 1st edition models.  Why oh why paint a mini fluorescent orange??  I could use them as night-lights!

And now Gencon 2010 is a fond memory

Wow...I mean....Wow...

I'm still in a bit of a haze being back to work after 6 day's of knock down, non-stop, awesomesauce flavored fun from 'This guy'!  The events wen't great, the con was great, and I actually bought stuff in the exhibit hall!  (I've been in a bit of a financial pickle for awhile).

The mission for this year 'Sacrifice', lived up to it's name.  In 5 sessions running the mission, the marines weren't able to complete the mission for a marine win.  But alas, this is what I was shotting for.  I just remember seeing the box for the first time and thinking, 'Hmm, desperate battle..'
This mission was built just to put the ol 'Aliens' feeling of "Game over man, game over!", and I think it suceeded.  I'll have the mission documentation up by tomorrow, so look for that, along with some product reviews from my purchases, and lots more pictures!  Stay tuned folks.
