Prep for NOVA Open

The next big tournament coming up is the NOVA Open and I happen to live a stone's throw from where it's being held. This makes NOVA the cheapest tournament on the scene for me- since I don't have to shell out a lot of money for accommodations or travel expenses. 

Despite NOVA's decision to go ahead with 6th edition (a choice I fully support), I am not going to be playing 40k there this year. It's definitely Fantasy for me. I have Big Plans for my Space Wolves, and there's no way I'd be able to get them done in time. And while my Daemons are finished, I'm in no hurry to play with them right now.

I've been trying to do at least an hour of painting every day, so I've been making good progress on the Dwarfs. The Slayers are 100% finished and everyone else is at least halfway painted. The bases are done and ready to go. I have just a few lords and heroes to finish up, including my Dragon Slayer and Rune Lord.

Unfortunately, I realized that the pirate dwarfs I was counting on won't be released until after NOVA is over. It didn't occurred to me to consider the release date against the tournament, so now I have to come up with another plan for them. I don't know of anyone that currently makes pirate dwarfs I could get right now that would fit in with the GW Long Drongs I already have.

Somehow, I always manage to be finishing models up at the last minute and each time I swear it won't happen again. If I try to find new models, it will, so I may end up just mish-mashing the warriors I have together and calling it a day. If all goes well, they'll be finished in the next two weeks, and I'll be able to get a bunch of games in.
