The Danish Masters are over, and as predicted the amount of rust I carried around – combined with less than a week to prepare – left me with a less than optimal result.
I fixed him up a bit and got down to painting. I’ve had the flue and a throat infection of some sort since Thursday but today it’s clearing up a bit. The upside was getting some work done on the Circle project in the periods between coughing up blood of shaking with the fever.
A long running gathering of danish nerds – the Emperors Chosen – has a Warmachine tournament this time around.
A couple of years ago I argued that you could learn as much by winning as you could by losing, but I never really managed to get the local rookies to analyze their games to an extent where that was actually true.
The model I’ve chosen for this was painted entirely in a single evening, and the actual time spent painting was considerable less than two hours. I cooked dinner, watched a movie, did the laundry, and still finished with time to spare.
It’s been a while since my last game, and since that game ended in a loss I should have avoided I’m eager to get some more games in.
