NOVA Open

Yesterday, I competed in the NOVA Open, ended up going 2-2 -- I must say that I enjoyed all 4 games -- even the ones that I lost.  I'm not too unhappy with that result given that yesterday was the first time I'd actually played the army -- I'd been too busy trying to get painted to actually play any games with it. I'd love to show you pictures of the army BUT SOME SOB AT THE EVENT DECIDED TO STEAL MY CAMERA.  OK, vent-mode off.  I'll talk more about my games in a subsequent post.

On a brighter note, my Manticore conversion was selected as one of the top 5 conversions -- it was a bit tricky though -- the paint judge asked which was my entry for best conversion and I ended choosing the Manticore over the Medusa just because the Manticore was more work (a lot more).  I'd be interested in knowing which you all would choose:  

This


Or this

Ultimately, I didn't win the competition, but to be selected as one of the top 5 was pretty cool.

I think you made the right choice. That multiple missile launcher is definitely the better looking of the two.

What?!?!? Someone stole your camera?? I hope the organizers know about this.

The Medusa looks familiar. Did I see this army at Games Day?

Yes, this army was at Games Day.
