    Thanks.  I saw somewhere that it comes with a few cards...

    Yeah, it is an alt sculpt for their game Arristeia. Picked it up at GenCon. It is a very cool little miniature skirmish game. It is basically a game show in the future.

    Metal or resin?  How big?  How much assembly required?  Can't seem to find any specs on this guy.

    He's metal. A bit bigger than standard. I think he's 33mm. Standard is 28mm. I love the pose. I am going to use him for a character in the Pathfinder Playtest. An older grizzled gladiator.

    I did a little work on the demon last night.  I put a fine layer of blue into the mouth to make it appear to have more depth.  The results were meh.  I put in a little dab of yellow glaze into the eyeball are and let it pool.  Then yellow washed around the eyes a little.  That turned out pretty well.

    Nice. I did some work myself. Pics when I am done. It is a very cool model I am working on. He's a Spartan!

    Still needs a seal coat, but my latest Massive Darkness monster.  I kind of like him.  You don't want to know how many coats of different colors and washes and dry brushes.  I'm still debating on whether to add some more details (like on his blemishes and bumps).  Part of me wants to add eyes, and part of me thinks that will ruin it.

    Wow, nice work. You are getting better everytime! The color transition on the head is fantastic!

    I saw your apology above, but it's really not necessary. We totally set you up, and I should have immediately waived you off. But I do LOVE the sentinel box, so wanted to hear what you had to say. 😉😉

    I had a brief hint of the crud on Saturday morning but was able to thwart it. Still on vitC while here on business travel.

    How distracting/irritating was it to be situated across from the cosplay deviants? Do you get any hint who your neighbors will be?

     

    Hah, not distracting at all, at least for me. I can't speak for the rest of the crew. We find out where we are when they release the showroom map to the public. We do not get to request neighbors. Last year we were directly across from Wyrmwood.

    I, do not have any signs of the crud, as of yet....but, I am guessing, that I have just jinxed myself.

    I kept looking out for you but didn't spot you!

    We had a great GenCon.  Friends from out of town, a big group dinner with too many margaritas, late night gaming (well, 'late' by our definition, hah), some really fun demos, and yes - much acquired loot.  We did the Q&A with the keynote authors - James S.A. Corey of the Expanse series and got front row.  Separately got them to sign some books.  

    I am in a rush this morning - I need to leave for the office in an hour and then will be away on business - but will try to gather my thoughts and post a follow-up later.

    I will say that one of the comical events of the weekend was our first visit to the DMG booth.  I spotted Zoe and shouted at her and we chat for awhile.  I then ask about a specific product I meant to look at in person.  She didn't see it in their collection and then called Konas over.  Konas had no reason to recognize me in person - we've met once, almost a year ago - and started into the full-on overview of the Sentinel box.  I'm smiling and nodding along, but over his shoulder, Zoe is horrified.  I lip read from her, "Does he know who you are?" to which I shrug and say "no."

    Konas is really getting his momentum now, but Zoe taps him on the shoulder sand says, "Konas... Konas... this is Zoxe."

    Konas deflates.  Extends his hand.  "Hi."

    "Hi! I'm really sorry, but you were doing so well I didn't want to interrupt you."  I'm pretty sure Konas was mentally wanting to kick me in the shin but he held his composure.

     

    We stopped in several times throughout the weekend, and the booth always looked pretty busy and money was changing hands.  I truly hope DMG had a great 'con and had a safe trip home.  I'm maintaining my Vitamin C regimen this year - maybe this time I won't come down with the 'Con Crud.

    That is an exceedingly accurate depiction of what occurred. Including the 'deflated' Konas.

    Yes, Con Crud is a very real thing. Bets on who from the DMG crew gets it first?

  7. And.....we are back. Worked a half day yesterday to catch up a bit but didn't have time to jump on here. I have a fuller then normal inbox and know that a couple of you reached out to me there. I will be responding this afternoon.

    Had an AMAZING GenCon. Potentially the best ever. Big things happening that I cannot discuss yet but hopefully soon. Great to see so many of you there. Apologies to @Zoxe again for not recognizing you upon meeting. My memory is crap. Too much lumberjack juice.

    Went a little crazy with the purchases this year. One of our biggest hauls ever. The shortlist: Monsterpocalypse, Aristeia, Crystal Clans, lots of minis for Arena Rex, Guild Ball, Hordes, Pathfinder playtest, Vampire V5, L5R beginner box, lots of dice, and a bunch of other stuff. Root the game was a big hit with the crew. So much that I am sure I am forgetting something.

    Our crew did an amazing job. @Zoe took the lead on the booth this year so I could hobnob with some other businesses and it worked very well. Hats off to her. She has staved off her daily firing for at least one day.

    Lastly to complete the collection - my two dice towers - Bubinga on the left, Redheart on the right.

    And again showing my love of Carey's work with my now almost trademark 'briar rose' custom work

    By the way - great work on the sculpt @Konas and crew.  I'm afraid my tablet camera doesn't really do it justice.

    One minor issue @Zoe and @Konas -- still seem to be issues with the magnet process.

    The Bubinga dice tower has the wrong polarity to match up with the Component Collector.  The redheart is fine.

    Looks great. Love that sculpt. Send @Zoe a note about the magnets and we will get it fixed up for you. Great pics.Thanks for the posting.
