Historicon '08 Prep

I might not get to finish the Buckeye Battles reports until next week.

This coming weekend I'll be at Historicon in Lancaster, PA.

We're leaving Thursday morning, but I'm busy all week leading up to that because I'm trying to get enough figures painted for the Warhammer Ancients Tournament run by NEWS. The three rounds require 1750, 2000 and 2250 point armies. I'm running a Burgundian Ordonnance army (in the AoC division.) At the moment, I still need to finish:

18 archers (almost done)
25 pikemen (barely started)
4 crossbowmen (barely started)
3 standards
1 army standard bearer + standard

I don't have any of the standards started, which is disappointing because I know I will not be able to finish them. I like to hand-paint them, but I think I will temporarily print something up on paper for the tournament.

Here's a peek at some of what's already finished:

Gendarmes
Archers
Coustilliers
Cannon & Crew
Cannon & Crew

    These really are fantastically painted. It was a pleasure to see them, and great to see you, in person.
