Fall-In! Last Call!

Well Fall-In! is now a memory, a good one, but a memory nonetheless. The bags have been unpacked, laundry's been cleaned, new miniatures have been set aside, and half a dozen new plans, schemes, and inspired ideas are floatin' around my melon. These are the last of the leftover pics, there's still a ton on my phone, but more of those later.

Above is me and comrade Dave Taylor, whose left pinky has as much miniature building and painting talent as I do in my whole body! We worked together on the successful Storm Wardens project a while back and it was great to meet him in person.

Here my stalwart companion Duck Sauce contemplates his next move in a game of Fireball Forward, a World War II tabletop game in development.

These last couple of shots were of an incredibly cool table that consisted of nothing but homemade "whimsical" miniatures. This was a huge table, with well over a hundred of these guys built and based on some pretty cool movement trays to boot. I didn't get the chance to play on it, but it's just an example of one of those things that you just don't get to see every day.

So farewell to Fall-In!, it was a blast. I wish I didn't come down with whatever it was while I was there, but I trudged through as best as I could. It looks like the convention scene in 2011 for me will be nil, but look for me again in '12!


  1. Hey Mik

    It was great to meet you in person, and just because there's a new minion on the way doesn't mean that the HMGS cons are out of the picture for you. You just need to earn more brownie points in the lead up to the event ; )


  2. I agree. You have to look at the newest minion as an opportunity to do more of those things that rack up the Spouse Approval Points.

    Don't give up the fight!

  3. Thanks for all the awesome convention posts. That was a lot of good gaming. I do have to wonder if all hotels buy their carpets at the same place though.

    As for the impending addition to the family. It'll be pure awesome. You've already been through it once, right? Like riding a bike, man.

  4. Hey guys, thanks for all the encouragement! I sometimes feel like I could use some time off anyway, haha! I only dread losing some square footage downstairs, but otherwise all should be back to business as usual in no time at all. Err, knock on wood...

    Plus, I should clarify, I didn't mean to just look for me at Historicon in '12...but Andy and I intend to /run/ a game in '12! Oh, snap!
