Vegas was and is blast. I great place to people watch and lose some money... Except that this time I won. Go figure. Of my many experiments with tools to bring on the trip just to keep my miniature monkey at bay I am pleased to announce that the pencil and paper were my most used. The tutorials were great to watch on the plane but it was difficult to setup in the room after attending workshops all day and watch another workshop. The sketch pad was always handy and required a different mindset to do... Aka it was much more pleasurable to do when my brain was full of all the yucky technical stuff.
As a bonus to my 6 day trip, my Kindgom Death Kickstarter was delivered the DAY I got back. Its a huge box of miniature goodness that I haven't even had time to go all the way through yet. I was very surprised by the quality of the sculpts (not sure why I was surprised but I was. Kingdom Death does really nice work) and the game components. I've been itching to play it as soon as it arrived. Maybe I will right a review.... of course I will need to play it first.
