Well, I'm back from my week in the UK on a business trip to visit the Nottingham office for Battlefront and Wargames Illustrated. I met a bunch of guys I've been working with for two years (and discovered one of them used to serve me beers, lots of beers, in Bugman's back in the day), caught up with a few old friends over beers, met some folks in the historical gaming "industry", and had a rather nice time at Salute. No problems with erupting volcanos this year, thankfully. The trip was great, but it's lovely to be back home again.
Anyway, the Heroes of Armageddon Charity Project is well under way, with build teams coming together across the country (my IG team stretches from Massachusetts in the east to Hawaii in the west). If you haven't yet heard my interview with Carl and Geoff from The Independent Characters podcast, head on over and check it out. I talk a lot about HoA!
As we don't have a lot of work completed I thought I'd mention a few things:
a) the regular prize draws begin tomorrow night. Head to the Heroes of Armageddon blog now to find out more about the very cool first prize donated by Mike and the company he works for, Bay Photo.
b) I thought I'd let you know who was on my build team. There's a pretty wide variety of folks (spread far and wide), so here's the roll of honor (wit a link to their blog or site if they have one):
• Joe Marshall
• Marc Raley
• Matt Boles
• Bob Weiss
• Jordan Carasa
And here's what 60+ Steel Legion and Stormtrooper models look like taking a bath in Simple Green : )
