However, this year I have bigger fish to fry: GenCon 2013.
I've been wanting to go to GenCon since I first heard about it, and this year—thanks to me being good and paying off all my credit cards— I finally have the means to go.
On average, Lock and Load costs me $800 (Canadian, duh!) to attend, and while I had no compunction against this in the past, I think that this $800 would be better spent at North America's largest gaming convention instead.
There are so many thing I want to do. I've never been to GenCon before. I feel that perhaps the best move might be just to go and walk around, and not commit myself to anything for fear of missing something else, but I know such luke-warm actions could cost my experience dearly.
I'm entering the Dark Age tournament for sure. Dark Age is one of my favorite miniatures games (definitely top 3), and I won't miss a chance to test my skills in the unforgiving arena of a tournament.
Well, that's what I have coming up. I'll be starting a Dark Age tournament journal here on the blog to chronicle my ascension to power in the wastelands of Attr/Samaria. I'll also be taking part in another painting challenge at work between some folks that involves painting 50 figures quicker than anyone else. I thought this might be a great way to start my brand-new High Elf army for Warhammer. You'll see some pics of those this year too. I'm on the fence about what I want to get done for 40k (Dark Angels, or Eldar) so we'll have to see how the year treats me, painting-wise.
