Dropzone Games in June. Sean from L33tlike.us sent me a link for it thinking I'd be interested and I am! I don't think I'm the most bestest or that I'd be the winner but I think it's a good opportunity to:
1) See some really cool models.
2) Talk to other painters and exchange ideas.
3) Show off some of the work you've done. You spend hours on your minis why not show them off.
To me that's one of the best experiences about our hobby. That is why I'm going back to Nova this year, it's nice to get comments on your work and gives you motivation to get better at it. Typically I paint high tabletop in my opinion. Some of my models I will go above and beyond so I feel I'll at least have some decent stuff to enter.
The categories I'll be entering are:
Single Mini - Sci-Fi
Squad - Sci-Fi
Vehicle/War Machine/Monster - Sci-Fi
I wasn't really thinking about it but most of my entries will be Eldar.. which isn't really a surprise but I was thinking it was going to be more diverse. I'd like to work something Blood Angel in there but I wouldn't really have the time I don't think. I might pick up a cool Fantasy model though .. maybe I'll try to paint one up for it but who knows what I'd even paint haha... I started getting rid of my Dark Elves and don't know which I'd pick if I went that route. I do like the Wood Elf Waywatcher Lord with bow but it appears they are out of stock and I don't know if they are even made anymore. I checked eBay but not looking to pay $50 for it!
