So after gamecon I have been laying low just kinda taking a break from the world of Miniatures for a little while. However last night I built my first Dark Eldar Raider for fun (sexy kit) and now Im gonna paint my first Warmachine model (one of the cryx bonejacks). Im horrible about keeping you guys updated but then again im just horrible in general. Been kinda a bad week anyway, what with getting one night standed and whatnot. Alas, my bonejack awaits, let me see what I can do with it. In theory I will be updating this post later with pics and insights into my bonejack. Stay tuned.

So it's official, due to low turnout for Gamecon Spokane, at the end of the first three round of play the winners of the golden tickets are assured. So even though I get to go and play all day tomorrow my golden ticket is locked in, I'm going to Vegas baby! There is still a lot of work to be done and some major reworking to my list before I get there, but I'm goin for sure. Anyway I just figured I would make a quick post about that because Im excited, now to get some sleep before day 2.

So last night's Dead Gentlemen Dorkness Rising/ Journeyquest double feature was a success. Lots of good publicity for the girls between the booth and the Dead Gentlemen themselves bringing the girls up on stage for the opening ceremonies. It was a fun night that was for sure... Of course it didn't leave much time for painting. But it's ok I did make some progress... Every model in my Warriors of Chaos army is built and ready to be primed and painted. Aaron and I will have two whole days of nothing but painting to work on the army and I'll have all week so it seems almost doable... Almost.Of course we are having a fundraising bake sale at Gamecon which seems like it's going to be a great money maker... I mean come on, gamers in a big room with junk food and cake? Sounds like a recipe for SUCCESS.
Yup its a shortun for today, tune in next time as my panic grows as Gamecon draws near... Should be entertaining to say the least...

|My new boss, Anora K.|
So where has all my free time gone? Well, dear reader (all like ten of you) I recently acquired a new job. So now, on top of working full time for my good friends at Winco, I'm also playing coordinator for the D20 girls project. Which is an awesome job that I'm hoping will lead to even more awesome jobs. But in the meantime I have very little time to build and paint.
The best part is that not only do we have a booth at this weekend's midnight showing of The Gamers: Dorkness Rising, but we also have a booth at Gamecon. So even while I'm playing in the WFB GT, I'll be working with the D20 girls and running around like a chicken with my head chopped off. But it's fun for me, I love high stress situations, get's me firing on all pistons.
Anyway I figured I'd keep you updated on the world of the Jenn, I'll try and take some pictures of this coming week if I have time. That's it for today, I'm off to build me a chariot!

|Aaron, my painting pimp|
So it's been a busy week for me, between work, and working on getting in with the D20 Girls (more on that in a moment) I haven't had much time for modeling/ painting/ playing. Today I had an opportunity to get some work done on my Warriors of Chaos in preparation for Gamecon. (which is only two weeks away I gotta get my ass in gear) My good friend Aaron and I went out to Gamers Haven today where we both worked on getting my Fantasy army painted. I realized that there is no way I'm getting this whole army done with my work schedule by the 15th so I hijacked him to help me work. Yes another person is helping me paint my army, but you know what... I'm lazy and I want to play.
Finally here are the queens standing side by side all finished. The bases still need a little bit more paint but they look awesome in person at the moment. Anyway that is where I am at right now, Aaron and I will be making a lot more progress over the coming weeks and I will try and keep you posted as we go. Let me know what you think, also, let me know how you like this new posting format that I proudly stole from Brent. I promise I will get you better pictures in the future.
