    Gen Con 2011!

    To celebrate the completion of my first set of beskar'gam I decided it would be awesome if I showed it off at a convention. Gen Con was right around the corner and I jumped on the opportunity. I had a fantastic time trooping with other Mando's from the Mercs!


    After like an hour of walking around my dad and I finally found the other Mandos! We got ambushed by people with cameras.





    (See what I mean?)
    Awesome Star Wars Arcade game.


    We made that kid really happy.

    It's hard to see but we went up the escalator just to go down it again for a great shot.









    As we came down the escalator we spotted a group of Jedi. We had to go attack them.






    We wandered over to some clone troopers and a little Boba. He was so cute!

    (Isn't he a little short for a storm trooper? )


    And I had to get a picture next to the TARDIS replica.


    My first troop and convention. It was so much fun!

    Orde, I think I saw some pics of you 4 at a convention on the web the other day. I recognised the purple and white of the helm. I cant remember which one, but when I do I will shoot you the link.

    Yup, I'm still around. I'm working on getting the work done tho! Even tho I'm having to contract it out a bit here and there.

    It'd be awesome to see you there! I don't know if I will go next year because I'd like to go to Celebration VI. I'd like to do both but I don't know if I'll be able to.

    Well, at least your kit will (hopefully) be done by then, even if you can't come to CVI. Always a plus.

    bah hah hah, you're a laugh a minute ner vod. Yeah, once mine's done I get to start on Fi's! lol that one will definately move a little quicker tho. I'm just struggling through with mine because it's the first one I guess. Hers will be a simple matter of ordering a manequin, a helmet and building the gaunts and such. We're both going with light kits to start and probably upgrading to a medium kit.

    Just noticed I put "can" instead of "can't" ... whoops, fixed that.

    Yeah, the first set is really working out the kinks and learning stuff -- I've definitely learned that. I'm looking forward to seeing both of yall's kits done.
