Now for the news on the painting side of things. Asharah's Rage was able to secure two very cool awards, the first of which was Best Appearance! This is always a difficult thing to accomplish when there are over 250 armies in the room competing against you. :-)
As you can see, Adepticon does not skimp on prize support! Yes, that is a complete set of Badger airbrush paints. The Sanguinary Guard will go quite nicely with my Knights of the Broken Blade splinter chapter, which is the foil to the Dark Eldar army. Yea!
Then we have the second award, which was Player's Choice. I will say again, when you have that many painted armies on very ingenious display boards, getting this means a lot. Last year was a tie, so every vote mattered! Many thanks to everyone who did choose the Dark Eldar. It is much appreciated. There is far more meaning to these kinds of awards for me, since painting armies is what I am all about.
Yes, single minis are fun as well, but to make an entire army out of figures painted the way I would do a single figure is how I challenge myself. :-)
Once again, hefty prize support. More stuff for the Knights of the Broken Blade!
Thanks to all the folks who make events like this happen. Tons of volunteer hours, and so on...
