GenCon is, of course, one of the largest gatherings of gamers and hobbyists on the entire damn planet. It was a delight to be able to attend this year, not only to try out some games, procure cool things, and see nifty peoples, but also to see model after model painted to superb levels and jammed behind glass for the assorted painting competitions. Naturally, I took some pics for you, but I have to give you some caveats before you proceed.
1. While I’m familiar with a few different miniature companies, I have no freakin’ clue where a lot of these come from, so I can’t provide too much commentary. Accordingly, not everything in this post will have the usual comment flavour that I generally try to offer to you, my beloved Losties.
2. The vast bulk of these models were behind glass when photos were taken, and the case on my phone is orange. Some reflections may occur, and the lighting in the pics was pretty much out of my hands. Kindly grant me some leeway accordingly.
3. Some image sorting has occured to group models from the same line together, but I make no promises because I only have so much time on my hands to get this done.
4. Pics were taken as opportunity presented itself throughout my two days at GenCon. There were many amazing models that I don’t have pics of. If you painted something cool and your model isn’t here, that’s no reflection on you or your ability.
Now, let’s get started with something that surprised and thrilled me – Arena Rex models!
Everyone knows the Platypus is a wonderful melange of animals making for an adorable little monotreme… Proximo, however, is a nightmarish conglomeration of doom waiting to end your miserable existence.
