My day at Gencon

 Made my way down to Mecca over the weekend to pay omige to the Nerd Gods! Myself and a good friend just went down for one day. Not much planned except to spend some cash and meet some friends from a Canonfire (a Greyhawk webpage) at the Ram. The one thing I was looking forward to getting was the two expansion packs for The Red Dragon Inn, but they were sold-out by Sat. Stopped by the OSR both and meet Frank Mentzer. Very nice guy.

 Didn't bring much back, but here is the swag. Two OSR modules, got a couple magic cards, some new dice, Bolt Action core rule book and some Forgeworld 40k mini's. I spent more cash on my badge, buying breakfast, chipping in for gas, getting dinner and buying a crap load of drinks for people. But had a blast.

Had to step away from the computer........

 So after 3 days of typing last weekend, I had to step away for a sec. Have had a military model diorama i've put off for some time now (about a year ago).The diorama depicts the 5th panzer div. on it's way to the Balkans in 1942. I had the Sd.kfz 223 armored car (on the road) and the Steyr RSO/1 (parked in the grass) tractor done. On monday got back to the project. Went to Wal-mart and got a $8 wooden picture fram for my base. Glued a peice of 1/4 ply-wood in the frame and so on. The diorama is FAR from done, but here is what I have done so far. Still have 3 more figures to put together and LOT'S of painting ahead. Took the pictures with my phone.

   Off to Gencon tomorrow to spend a crap-load of cash.
