GenCon 08 Trophies

Posted August 3rd, 2008 at 04:31 PM by Onacara
Updated August 3rd, 2008 at 06:22 PM by Onacara
After seeing my work on the trophies for Beantown Beatdown and Saratoga Slugfest, I was approached by Grungebob who asked me "What would you say if I asked you to make some trophies for Gencon?" My response was "How many do you want?". He never gave me a number (I think he would have been happy with 1 or 2) but I decided to make one for each event.

This isn't my best work as I did not have alot of time but I think everyone will be pleased. There may or may not be trophies for the General Wars top performer for each general if I find the time to get them done. [B]UPDATE[/B] There will be trophies for the top finisher for each general for General Wars too :wink:

So without further adieu ... here are pics of the trophies in their final/near-final form.


Dragon Wars

Capture Raelin

Unique Hero

Classic Draft (Can anyone tell what this one is based on?)

Above Cursed Lands


Power Of One

Heat of Battle

GenCon 08 Championship[/B]

TTPMO-Forums Part 1

[FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]Today I want to talk about why forums p*** me off. [/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]For example…[/SIZE][/FONT]
[LIST][*][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]If someone says something funny do not post :rimshot: as your response. They knew they were making a joke they don’t need you to point it out you Buddy Rich wannabe.[/SIZE][/FONT][/LIST][LIST][*][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]Do not point out a :hijacked: because 95% of the time it is not a hijack at all but a little bit of comic relief or a sidebar from the original discussion. I am just glad you guys are not in charge of handling plane hijackings otherwise you would call out the Air Force the moment the guy in Seat 23A asked for an extra pillow.[/SIZE][/FONT][/LIST][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3](Just so you know what it looks like)[/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3][B]Thread Hijack[/B]…[/SIZE][/FONT][LIST][*][LIST][*][SIZE=3][FONT=Times New Roman][B]Topic[/B] “Anyone ever see Goodfellas?” …[/FONT][/SIZE][*][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3][B]Post 3[/B] “My cat is coughing up hairballs what do I do about that?”[/SIZE][/FONT][*][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3][B]Post 4[/B] “My cat used to cough up hairballs all the time but stopped after we began brushing her everyday.” [/SIZE][/FONT][*][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3][B]Post 5[/B] “No you shouldn’t brush them everyday as they need to groom themselves.”[/SIZE][/FONT][*][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3][B]Post 6[/B] “The groom didn’t show up at a weeding I went to on Saturday”[/SIZE][/FONT][*][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3][B]Post 7[/B] “Mr Saturday Night was a horrible movie”[/SIZE][/FONT][/LIST][/LIST][LIST][*][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]If you don’t get the joke…don’t let everyone know that you don’t get the joke. This isn’t the same as being in a room with everyone where you just smile and nod your head and hope no one notices. Just don’t reply.[/SIZE][/FONT][/LIST][LIST][*][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]If the OP asks for help and actually takes the time to spell out all of the components of their question, please take the time to read it FIRST and then post a reply. I am tired of seeing this…[/SIZE][/FONT][/LIST][LIST][*][LIST][*][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3][B]OP:[/B] I am trying to build a 500 point army for an upcoming mini tournament with my friends. I currently have the original Master Set, 2 Swarm of the Marro, All of wave 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 (1 of each) except for the Zombies (I have 3 sets of those) Can you help?[/SIZE][/FONT][*][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3][B]Response 1[/B]: You should go with this army that I used to beat my friends 4th Mass x3……[/SIZE][/FONT][*][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3][B]Response 2:[/B] That’s a good army but I would go with Krug and Drones x3[/SIZE][/FONT][/LIST][/LIST][LIST][*][FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]Apparently people think having and running a forum is easy because I have seen a lot of forums spawned from here. In fact there is one the has a membership of 60 and of the 60 members 40 of them also have forums and everyone of the 40 is a member of the other persons forum. The best part of this forum inbreeding is that they all have the same exact forum categories on them. Now if I can find a way to be made an Admin on all of them :ponder:[/SIZE][/FONT][/LIST]

TTPMO-Band Aid

Posted April 16th, 2008 at 12:49 PM by Onacara
[FONT=Helvetica]Ok so why the hell is Onacara writing about a Christmas Song in the middle of April? Well first of all I didn’t want to ruin the holiday season for anyone and secondly it now gives you about 7 months to prepare yourself for the stupidity.[/FONT]

[FONT=Helvetica]Christmas is supposed to be a time for peace on Earth and good will towards man and nothing exemplifies this belief more than Band Aid’s “Do They Know It’s Christmas”. Right?[/FONT]

[FONT=Helvetica]Well I may have to choose this as my least favorite Christmas song…and it may soon be your’s too. Let’s break it down.[/FONT]

[FONT=Helvetica]It's Christmastime…There's no need to be afraid [COLOR=red]Really? [/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Helvetica]At Christmastime…we let in light and we banish shade [COLOR=red]When did shade become such a horrible thing? Shade is actually healthy for you. (Do you hear that George Hamilton???)[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Helvetica]And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of joy [COLOR=red]Well this is a nice sentiment..I may not have much but I can always smile. :)[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Helvetica]Throw your arms around the world at Christmastime [COLOR=red]Ok now this is starting to make me feel good [/COLOR][/FONT][COLOR=red][FONT=Wingdings][FONT=Wingdings]:D[/FONT][/FONT][/COLOR]
[FONT=Helvetica]But say a prayer [COLOR=red]…and now it’s gone.. [/COLOR][/FONT][COLOR=red][FONT=Wingdings][FONT=Wingdings]:([/FONT][/FONT][/COLOR]
[FONT=Helvetica]Pray for the other ones [COLOR=red]…wait what other ones?..which other ones?[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Helvetica]At Christmastime it's hard, but when you're having fun [COLOR=red]What the hell exactly does this mean? Is it hard to pray when you are having fun? Rev do you ever have this problem?[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Helvetica]There's a world outside your window [COLOR=red]Not quite sure…does this meant that what exists inside my window is not part of the world?[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Helvetica]And it's a world of dread and fear [COLOR=red]Um hello!!!! You just told me 10 seconds ago that there was no need to be afraid.[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Helvetica]Where the only water flowing is the bitter sting of tears [COLOR=red]If you are going to count tears as water flowing than shouldn’t you also count urine? (I’m just saying)[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Helvetica]And the Christmas bells that ring there are the clanging chimes of doom [COLOR=red](Quick checks Christams Bells references…Silver Bells…Jingle Bells…Oh there it is Clanging Chimes of Doom[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Helvetica]Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you [COLOR=red]Can a less Christian thing ever be said?[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Helvetica]And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmastime [COLOR=red]Actually there NEVER is snow in Africa at Christmastime because it is the summer there. However it does actually snow in the mountains of South Africa.[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Helvetica]The greatest gift they'll get this year is life (Oooh) [COLOR=red]And your kids complain that they didn’t get a Wii.[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Helvetica]Where nothing ever grows [COLOR=red]Over 30,000 species of plants and flower grow throughout Africa.[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Helvetica]No rain nor rivers flow [COLOR=red]Um….did the longest river in the world get relocated to another continent?[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Helvetica]Do they know it's Christmastime at all? [COLOR=red]If they are not Christian then technically it isn’t Christmastime to them or any holiday for that matter. In the immortal words of Rocky Balboa “To you it’s Thanksgiving…to me it’s Thursday”[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Helvetica](Here's to you) raise a glass for everyone [COLOR=red]Woo hoo lets all get loaded and maybe we’ll forget about them!!!![/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Helvetica](Here's to them) underneath that burning sun [COLOR=red]Well maybe if we didn’t “banish shade” they would have some refuge from that bruning sun.[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Helvetica]Do they know it's Christmastime at all? [COLOR=red]Do they care?[/COLOR][/FONT]
[FONT=Helvetica]Feed the world Feed the world [/FONT]
[FONT=Helvetica]Feed the world[/FONT]
[FONT=Helvetica]Let them know it's Christmastime again [COLOR=red]They didn’t care about it before why should they care about it AGAIN???[/COLOR][/FONT]

[FONT=Helvetica]Tune in for more....[/FONT]
