Gen Con Bound!

Guess what arrived in the mail?! GUESS!!

Yup, that would be both mine and my wife's Gen Con badges! It'll be my first ever Gen Con, and I can't wait. I'm not even playing in anything and I'm ecstatic to get there!

Yes you read that right, I'm not playing in anything AND my wife is coming with me. So what will I be doing?

Community Topics: Centurions DIY Marine Chapter

For probably 2 years now, Kraut Scientist has been on me about writing a detailed series on my Centurions Marine Chapter. Considering I promised I'd write what was requested of me in the comments of my birthday post, KS gets his wish!

This is a force that took over 14 months of work to complete, from assembly to paint and to play. This army was chosen as a Players' Choice the first year I brought it to the Adepticon 40K Championships, and won Best Artisan in the Combat Patrol twice. So I'm honestly not sure why it's taken me so long to write about what has been my most successful and highly converted army to date.

This will be a series of articles, as there's just far too much to cover in a single go. However I do promise in-depth conversion details with pictures, how I did it, parts I used, and painting techniques.

I guess I really should have done this sooner, huh?

Community Topics: Entering Painting Competitions

Just two wee articles ago, I thanked everyone for helping make Miniature Tim a success for the past 3 years and asked for topics that you, the readers, would like me to cover. Those topics will be covered in a new series, "Community Topics". The best part is that while I will be covering those who commented in the birthday post first, "Community Topics" is an open series that I will continue to take requests for! Don't hesitate to propose something that you've been searching for good coverage on, with little or no satisfying results so far, we'll get it covered here!

Dai brought up a great topic, and one that is highly pertinent to what I'm currently prepping for: Painting Competitions. What's so great about them? Why should we enter them? What if I'm not good enough?

Let's dive right in!
