Terrain Day and Final Results!!!

   Well, we've come to the end of painting week. Soon we shall all be wandering off our separate ways to create trouble elsewhere. But, before we go, I wanted to share with you the pics from Terrain Day and the final results of the official tally of the First (Annual) Painting week.
   Almost everyone was able to show up today to add in some lovely scatter terrain. Merrick gave us some awesome street lights, a fire hydrant, and that darling hot dog cart. From Second Class Elitist comes... all the stuff that's holding trash, and that cool little pod. TGC made the first of a set of really cool craters she found at AAA Hobbies on our morning excursion, and I made a few pieces of small sci-fi scatter as well as a large power conduit (that's going to power some other scatter terrain I haven't finished yet).



   ...But then I said, "Bah! Pittely stuff!" Look, scatter terrain is the spice of life, but you could be at it all year and not fill a table or get massive points to finish out Painting Week. So I decided to break out the big brushes and up the ante, and voila! Take a look at this big, beautiful hunk of Deadzone building!


   Boom! Instant 30 points. Well, okay, not instant, there are actually a lot of hours in that thing, all line shading and stuff. But boy is that a way to finish out a Paintcation! That oughtta throw me way out in the lead... or so you'd think...
   But, you'd be wrong, because then the Queen of Drybrushing walks in, yawns at me in that ho-hum tone of voice, and does this in about an hour and a half:


   Yup, that's about a hundred tiles of Dwarven Forge, folks. An entire limestone cavern, complete with nasty green muck. Gorgeous, isn't it?
   So that's how it's done, folks. That concludes today with Merrick showing up at the last minute for 4 points, 2CE completing a respectable 12, me finishing a whopping 40 points, and TGC waving her magic wand (read: drybrush) and turning out a truly spectacular 105 points- essentially, an entire table... that just has to get played on asap.

   So there you have it, folks. The final totals for the week are as follows (didn't I keep telling you TGC would pull a rabbit out of her hat at some point? You didn't believe me, did you?)

Belgarath 97- 1 point
Merrick- 4 points
Second Class Elitist- 46 points
Ali Alcatraz- 67 points
Token Gamer Chick- 126 points

For a club total for the week of 244 points! 

   Now that's how you knock off some points and get some models done! Good job all! I hope everyone had a wonderful Painting Week. There are, of course, many more wonderful minis to be done, as well as review articles to highlight some of the gems we painted this week, but I'd say we got a truly spectacular amount of work done, while still enjoying some shopping, grilling, gaming, and having an all-around good time. I hope you enjoying watching the shenanigans. Thank you to everyone who stopped by for Google Chat, and stay tuned for the Sunday news, coming to you early... like tomorrow, because we are almost all leaving for the weekend. Ta-ta!
