Games Day 2011

So we are back! Finally! After 7 or so hours waiting at the airport yesterday and getting back in around 11:30pm. I was completely exhausted. But it was fun hanging with Jawa and Frtiz at the airport, watching 'The Thing' on Jawa's laptop lol.

Overall, I had a blast this past weekend at Chicago Games Day. I got to hang out with some truly awesome people. Being apart of the 'Heroes of Armageddon' project and putting the models on the table was very cool. There were just so many models on the table that you couldn't not find any cool angles to look from. A big thanks to Mike and John over at SantaCruz Warhammer and all the team leaders for getting this together. We ended up raising $32,000 for 'Doctors without Borders'.

The Crew
Jawa took best banner (again) this year and there were alot of cool banners and costumes. So great job Jawa!!! He's got something special planned for next year, I could arleady see the twinkle in his eye getting ready for a 4-peat.

I was also honored this past weekend.....with a SILVER DEMON in 40k Large! I couldn't believe it and I still can't believe it. The model that took gold in the category was absolutely amazing and jaw dropping (Drew Drescher's DreadKnight). I had some time to introduce myself and meet up with alot of amazing painters and demon/sword winners. Got alot of helpful advice and tips to make my painting a bit better. Hopefully this win will allow me to be motivated enough to build and paint more models before next year's GD. I plan on some cool things.

More pics and things to come.

Hey, Cho! Skarvald the Troll-faced (aka Vlad in RL) here, but I'm sure you remember me from that little project of hours.. What was it called? Made 32,000 smackaroos for charity. Oh, yes. The Heroes of Armageddon.
I'd like to congratulate you once again for your Silver Demon and I just know that you have what it takes to take the Gold next year. As you said at Games Day - start earlier so you don't have to paint during the night.

It has been a pleasure teaming up with you and hanging out as well. I'd appreciate it if you would subscribe to my blog!

Hey Vlad, I joined and will follow your blog. It was fun hanging out and meeting up with you. We'll definately have to do that again next year as well. Thanks for the compliment and hopefully I can take the gold next year! Gotta work hard lol.
