Back from Kingdom Con.

I am back from Kingdom Con. now! I had a blast and it was great to meet those of you that were able to make it.

I managed to win their Crystal Brush Qualifier painting competition so I will be headed to Adepticon in 2014!

There will be some changes and re-organizing coming to the website in the next few week. Some upgrades and maybe a new store. :)

It has been a while!

I have been busy painting and working on finishing up fullfillment on the Super 3D Dungeon Boards Kickstarter. 
I have lots of pictures to add updates to the Kickstarter.

I am also headed down to Kingdom Con this weekend. So if any on you will be down there I will see you there!  

Back at it!

Well it has been a while since I updated. I managed to slice up my hand up pretty bad on a broken glass and was not painting for a little bit. I am back at it and back posting. Look for updates coming soon.

Terrain for Bay Area Open.

Sorry for the lack of posts the last few days. I have been painting like crazy and getting ready for the Bay Area Open tournament I am running at the end of the month.

Here are some pics of the terrain that I will be giving away along with the objective markers that will be door prizes :)

I also over the weekend got to get out and play in a Warmachine Tournament. I drove down to LA with some friends for the Steamroller they were having at Orcon and had a great time. The had 32 people show up. I managed to go 3-1 and did not play in the final round. We had a 4 hour drive back home, and since none of us were in the top 6 we decided to head out. We all had a great time and will be back for the next one they are running in a few months.

Lots of traffic of the Super Dungeon Explore boards :)

Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. I spent it running games at our local Super Winter Mini con. There was a Warmachine Domination release event that I ran. (BTW I am a PP Pressganger too. Pg_Menelker), Warhammer 40k Tournament, Malafaux tournament (Which I won. Yeh Neverborn!) and of course Super Dungeon Explore!

People had a blast playing on the 3D boards.I have to say they they are holding up nicely and people seem to love playing on them. It is fun seeing people walk into a con, see this bright red thing from across the room and walk over ignoring everything else and ask "What the heck is this?" Usually I would reply with, "Have you ever played Gauntlet? and most of the time they would say "What is that?"

Usually I would reply with "Damn kids, know your history!" Well at least I would in my head. After that I would go on to explain it and see if I could get them to play. It made for a fun weekend.

Also on the SDE front I did an interview for Table Top Geeks for the 3D Super Dungeon Explore Boards. You can see it here.

Also Soda Pop and Cool Mini or Not picked up the pictures and posts on their Facebook pages :)

I have more SDE stuff to come. Just need to get caught up on some painting......

Moved!

I have everything moved. If I did miss anything or you have troubles finding something feel free to let me know!
