The Time is Upon Us! Bolscon is here...

So, Tomorrow morning Fritz and I fly out to Texas for what should prove to be an awesome weekend of gaming! To start it off, we have the blogger challenge... Fritz and I have games lined up against Jwolf and any one else from the Flylords who want a piece of us. On top of that, it would be great if any one else from the area that will be at the hotel on Friday night could drop in and say hi! On Saturday, I have decided to thwrow in my lot with the 2k point 7 game tournament. I am not delusional about my chances, but with a little luck, I could do well. Fritz has decided to enter the big game apocalypse event in search of personal glory. He will be zooming around with his farseer army subtly manipulating events from afar...

On saturday night, we plan on hitting the tables again for more open gaming. We will be there to take on any challengers who might want to see what the 5th Dimension is all about.

Sunday will see the convention wrapping up. I am not sure if there are open gaming tables available, but we will still be there! Our flight leaves on Monday afternoon, so if we can get in any more challlenge games on Sunday night, it will be great.

Or goals for the weekend? Fun. I am looking forward to hanging with Fritz and meeting lots of great people... and hopefully placing some faces on the names like at Gamesday. It would be great to win some games, but if I go down there, and get beat down 10 times in a row, it matters not. It would be great to beat Jwolf, but if he slaps me around, I will still be a better player for it, we both win.

Since I am a painter first, player second, that is where I have placed my eggs. I would be a liar if I said I was not optimistic and hopeful about my chances to score in the painting competition. Just this week alone I have poured about 40 hours into my army... Instead of practicing games, I spent my time before this weekend painting. I replaced half of my tired old assault marines, and added a speeder, attack bike and rhino. As I write this, I am staring at my Blood Knights who need a couple hours of love themselves... and am trying to muster up the motivation... My back is cramping and my fingers are giving out from holding brushes... But it is Jawalove!

So there you have it! 24 hours from now I will be some where over Tennessee. Shortly thereafter, I will be starting 48 hours of 40k joy. Come on out and say hi!
