What a ride what a ride..11 hours actually. I did perfect the art of sleeping with a sweatshirt on my head though. That's something right? So what do you do exactly when you've been in a van for 11 hours? Our first idea was to drive another hour across town to GW's headquarters for a friggin barbecue! :)..I'm vegetarian but damn if that wasn't some good tater salad.
This was what made Gamesday memorable to me. The actual saturday may have been a little less than expected but GW stretching it out a bit by throwing a cookout the day before helped. We walked around the place and then back and forth again. There was a lot to see :)
We rolled back to the hotel and went to restaurant for some beer and eats..Yeah, barbecue again. I shared a greek a salad and some red beans & rice with the other herbivore in our clan. The next morning with our nerves in a bundle we headed to the Cook convention center for Gamesday proper...
In no particular order here is a pile of pictures. The disorder is probably a result of rushing in and then wandering around in when the afternoon hits and you've seen it.
This was a great gamesday over all. I was a little disappointed that there wasn't a speed painting contest or and art on display. But I was happy as hell to see my painting pal Tom grab the Slayer Sword and not one but 3 Golden Demons as well as the Forge World best in show. Hi five my man! I was a little disappointed in myself when I only took home one bronze but it's hard not to get wrapped up in the competitions on the day of. No big deal, I was thoroughly inspired and got some good feedback from the judges. I'm already planning on next year's conventions and taking it a step further.
See you at Gencon.
