The day before Games Day: The Tale of the Tables for Heroes of Armageddon!
Phew! I survived yet another Games Day! But before I start showing you shiny pictures of the event itself let me start with the day before Games Day in which yours truly overslept, the FOUR 3′x4′ Heroes of Armageddon tables were finished and then transported to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL, the Heroes of Armageddon crew finally met in person and the miniatures finally got to see their enemies.. Friday, August 30, 2011 (The day before Games Day) It’s gettin’ there.. SNOOZE ! After specifically instructing my parents to wake me up before 7:30am, I ended up waking up an hour late! Oh no! And I was supposed to catch the 9:25 Metra train to Santa’s Brian’s little workshop. A quick shower, a taxi to the Metra Station and three shots of espresso from Starbucks (I was running on 3 and a half hours of sleep, you see) sealed the deal. Although slightly late for the party, there was still plenty of work to be done. Nothing major, though, just minor touch-ups where paint had chipped, pooled or where something needed a second, third.. or fourth layer of paint. Some watered down fancy washes were also applied to bring things together and under the hot Chicago sun they dried pretty fast. Too fast, even.
