Total Confusion XXVI!

Last weekend was Total Confusion XXVI. For the uninitiated, TotalCon is the biggest gaming convention in the Northeastern US, and, as such, is the biggest one within easy driving distance of my home(*). This is the first year I have attended the con purely as a player and attendee, not as a Game Master, and I made sure to dive in head first to enjoy what was available.

I had some extra white paint left in my airbrush after base coating a whole batch of Firestorm Armada flight bases.

January Retrospective

I felt like I didn't have much time for miniatures in January, but, looking back, I did manage to get quite a lot done cleaning, assembling, basing and priming most of my Firestorm Armada fleet:

Not as much paint as I might have liked, but I did manage to get a lot of modelling finished, paving the way for more painting in the future.

This month I'm planning to do more work painting and finishing my fleet, and, if all goes to plan, I will also get to play some games at Total Confusion towards the end of the month!
