While I know it isn't late for some of you, I find myself up at this hour less and less often. What keeps me awake tonight is a desire to finally have a respectably painted army that I can take down to the upcoming Bloomington tournament this Saturday. Whether or not you agree with it, the tournament down in Bloomington counts a painting score into the total to determine the winner. I'm from near Bloomington and have always enjoyed playing a game or two down at the Game Preserve, but I've never taken a fully painted army to one of their tournaments. Because of the painting score I've never had much of a shot to place, but I think I can throw some work in over the next two days and have a decent score to go with a good army and trust the dice to fall as they may. What motivates you to get out a brush? Mr. Palmer's work (left) certainly helps.
