This was a mistake.

In other painting news, I finished the base on the Marauder and added the 5th Border Legion icon to the cortex hatch. I fully intend to go and snow up said base, along with Vlad's, but am likely to sack out on the couch with NHL Tonight on and fall asleep. Such is life.
On the getting things painted front, I've been considering the NOVA Open over the past couple days. It's the closest psuedo-big tournament, though it looks to be well short of Templecon (which I think is the closest big tournament), and despite having played in a grand total of two (2) small tournaments thus far, I'm looking to see how I fare in a larger setting. Aside from registration fees and whether or not to book a hotel room less than an hour from home, there are two big hurdles for me to leap. First is that one of the tournaments is a team tournament, so I'd need to find two other folks to carry me enter with. Considering the number of players at the FLGS, combined with my intention to attend other local tournaments in the DMV, this doesn't figure to be too bad. Second is that the other tournament is Hardcore, which means fully painted. This actually isn't much of a hurdle as I'm creeping up on 50% complete on my Khador and can probably field a fully painted 50 point list right now, a list which would feature plenty of things likely to appear in a 50 point Hardcore list. There's a third tournament at the NOVA Open, but it'll be populated by the winners of the two previously mentioned tournaments, so there isn't much considering to be done about it. Of course there's the whole con experience as well, which I've done for hockey but not for gaming, so building in time to wander the halls, meet folks, and see the sights is a good idea as well. With five months between now and then I have plenty of time to mull things over.
