Goodbye Weebly

I'm getting rid of my Weebly site, it's just too much of a pain to work with layout-wise, not to mention nobody knows what the heck Weebly is anyway. So while I'm looking for a new host to build my miniature painting commission site on, you can just email me here if you want to hire me for painting related activities. I know it's a shot in the dark hiring someone who doesn't have a site with a gallery of nice looking minis, so I'm not expecting any commissions anytime soon until I get a new site and more pictures of my work. Maybe this was the Emperor telling me I'm not ready to try and handle my own business yet. But still, if you were wondering, this is where you reach me for that stuff for the time being.

Madicon News

MADICON NEWS! I'm still on for doing a basic mini painting workshop at the 19th annual Madicon, which is March 12th to 14th. I'll be there all 3 days (hopefully) but my workshop is in two parts before and after the Warhammer tournament, for 2 hours a piece. I'll cover basic techniques like base-coating, dry-brushing, highlighting and washes, as well as some mass-painting speed tips for those of you that just want to play. Also, fingers crossed, I'll have time to compete in the tournament and enter in the nerd auction, where a dinner or dance with me will be auctioned off for charity. So if you're in the western portion of Virginia that weekend, swing on by and say hello!

Gamesday 2010

PictureGot my tickets for 2010 Gamesday in Baltimore! I'm really excited, and since I have family in Baltimore, it's going to be a much less stressful event than when I tried to get a hotel in San Diego for Comic Con the month before I left. Which, of course, will leave me a lot more stress-free time over the summer to work on a costume, instead of piecing one together the day before...

Almost Famous?

My friend Paul, who taught me much of what I know about Warhammer and painting miniatures, posted about me on a BOLS article today, 40K ASKEW: Girls, Girls, Girls. He wrote about me under my gaming handle Zephri, which I started using in World of Warcraft where I met him and most of my friends, and contradicted the thesis of the article, being that no girls played 40K, by saying,

"Hard core gaming girls ,while rare, do exist. When i first met zephri, one of my old wow guild mates, in real life she pulled out her necron army, and more video games than i owned from her little pink back pack.( And by video games i mean 50 + hour rpgs that were all beaten. )She then proceded to give one of our players a sound thrashing with her crons. Not only was she a gaming girl but she was also smokin hot."
