Howdy Gamers! It's time for some more board game art! Clank! is one of our household's favorite deckbuilders, so I wanted to get an upgraded dragon miniature (for the base game) and an upgraded spider miniature (for the Gold and Silk expansion).
In case you're interested in doing something similar, here's my materials list and other details!
-Spider Mini ($5.00, WizKids, came primed)
-Dragon Mini ($8.00, Reaper, came primed)
-Paint (About $2.00 per color at any craft store; we used a very basic acrylic paint)
-Matte After Painting Spray ($4.00 at Wal-Mart)
The spider was about 3 hours and the dragon took about 4 hours, and then about an extra half hour between 2 coats of the spray. (I did the spider while my fiance did the dragon for painting).
-Don't be too concerned with perfection, especially if it's your first time painting like it was for me. Everything will be okay!
-Do your research about wet painting, dry painting, washing, and other paint techniques

Howdy Gamers! Another year of PAX Unplugged came and went, and while I'm terribly sad that it's over, I'm once again super glad that I went. It was a lot of fun in a great community of dedicated and generally happy-go-lucky gamers!
It is such an inviting and welcoming place to be for a weekend. I was able to let go of a lot of stress and have a really great time with my fiance, and it was great to be able to do that and not have to worry about work , life, and anything other than board games. We just played games, cruised the vendor hall, bought a TON of stuff, and I also went on a mini scavenger hunt for an owlbear and that was pretty dang exciting as well.
I've got a handful of pros and cons I wanted to mention from this convention experience as my recap as well as, of course, a bunch of fun photos from mostly the games I was playing. Please enjoy! And hopefully I'll see you next year at PAXU! :)
