Origins was fun, exhausting, frustrating and redeeming.

Fun because of all of the people who came to help and play. Thank you all. 

Exhausting because of the 5 hour drives pulling the trailer full of scenery to and from the Convention. 

Frustrating because of 1 idiot who stole a bag of miniatures before the young man who owned them ever got to play a full game with them. 

Redeeming because of the out pouring of help from people to replace the missing Miniatures. Thank you to Darrell and the Toledo Game Room and Daniel and Game Table Adventures for stepping up and helping. Also thank you to several 'nid players who offered help to replace the miniatures. More details to follow.

If you are looking for results, scores, etc. That is going to have to wait until later in the week, sorry. 

Good fun was had by all and we will be back next year.

T-3 and Counting

The pre-Origins scramble continues as rain falls. 

Yesterday, wheels on carts were checked. Bins shuffled and armies double checked for missings arms and guns. Maintenance day for the trip down.

Oh, we also painted scenery, and play tested some of the matches. In short it was a full time assault on the to-do list.

Things are coming together. We laughed hard at Thunder-WAAAAGH! It is going to be crazier than letting a barrel of monkeys loose in the kitchen. 

Detail painting today, hunting missing stuff, starting the checklist and probably filling the truck with gas. 

3 days and we will all be in Columbus. 

1 Week and counting

Armies here are bagged up to go, badges are ordered, and terrain is being finalized. 

I cut 300 popcycle sticks last night, I will not tell you why. We ran through almost a gallon of glue in the last 2 weeks, again you will have to come to Origins to find out why.

Seven days from now the truck and trailer will be on the road. From front bumper to back bumper, more than 40 feet of rolling miniature terrain. 

We will see you there.
