This Gen Con was my return after two years of being unable to go. I wasn't able to go two years ago because I got married, and last year I was unable to go due to another vacation that was in the way.
As usual, I had to enter a figure in the Privateer Press painting contest and this was the first year I entered more than one figure. I thought for a good while about what figure I wanted to paint, and eventually settled on Gunnbjorn. I know he may not be the most loved Trollblood Warlock, but he sure is a fun model to paint. The other model was the Spriggan that I featured here a few months ago. I didn't intend on entering him in a contest when I was painting him, but it is good to know a figure I painted for fun can still earn a gold coin in the contest.
I'll be taking better pictures in the coming weeks, but here's what they looked like in the display case.
I was trying to update this blog on weekly basis before I stopped so I could focus on my Gen Con painting, but from now on I'm going to update a little more infrequently. I used to try and have a new model every week to showcase here, so that meant I rushed my work sometimes. I now know what I want to focus on with my painting for the next year, and that means I may take a little more time per figure. I received some good feedback on Gunnbjorn and will be working on implementing what I learned. Rest assured, the figures will still keep coming, but they may be a little more spaced out.
Gen Con was a blast, and I can't wait until next year!
