The road to Adepticon 2015, AND Origins 2015

So last year (2014) Team Boltgun made it into the top 15 looks for appearance (out of about 150 teams) and maxed out our sportsmanship score! We are justifiably proud of that fact. Now we LOST 9 of 10 games, so our final scores landed us somewhere in the bottom third overall. This is due to battle score influencing the other two categories. We might not like it, but that is how it is. One of the judges even told us they feel that " it is a true skill to stomp someone's face in and still have them give you max sportsmanship". He is right, but we don't have to like it!

So on the way home while already hatching a devious plan for our display, we talked about what to do to remedy this situation. We had to have a theme, with beautiful, eye catching, armies, and we had to have a gimmick or trick in our display. All of these things we had done already, but we left the competitive meta fighting lists at home. This year.....nah we are bringing a bag of hammers to drop on our opponents, along with a goody bag filled with swag!

On that note, Eldar it is! So we have all begun to put to gether and paint our armies, and this is where I stand so far.

Speed and more speed....

Now Origins is a bit of a different animal in that we are no longer focused on JUST 40k. We are running a crazy number of events this year. Our newest editions being Black WAter Gulch, and Drop Zone Commander.

The Hawk Wargames guys have been nice enough to hook us all up with starter sets and a few blisters each to make some decent starter armies so we can run demos. That means new tables and displays for us as well. Now 10mm or railroad N scale is new to me, and the boards will be small, about 2x2 for the demos, but they will be fun to make! So far, this is where I am with it!
