    My Thoughts . . . 2002

    I just got back from the U.S. GamesDay and the most unexpected of results
    occurred-I won the 2002 Slayer Sword. I was utterly shocked because I
    truly did not think that I had a shot this year. The only miniature I had
    brought to GamesDay was a 40k single, which has not won the sword in the United
    States since I have been competing. With the likes of Bobby Wong and Jason
    Richards prowling the Categories, I firmly believed that this was not going to
    be my year. Two years ago after I won my first sword, I wrote my article
    "MY THOUGHTS ON HOW TO WIN AT THE GOLDEN DEMON" which explained that
    winning a the Golden Demon requires both a lot of hard work and a healthy dose
    of good luck. You can still see this article on Jason Richards's Web site
    here: http://www.miniaturespace.net/Victor%20Hardy's%20advice.htm

    What was true in 2000 is even more true in 2002.

    This year I originally did not intend to go to the U.S. Games Day because of the
    ban on past Golden Demon winners. Rather, I planned to go to England
    to try my luck there. Two months prior to Games Day they lifted the ban on
    Sword Winners, and suddenly I was back in business with respect to U.S.
    competition. The only problem was that so was Bobby Wong. If you
    compete in the U.S. then you know what I am talking about. I have come to
    terms with the FACT that Bobby Wong is the most technically proficient blender and
    highlighter in the United States, and probably in the world. His highlighting and blending technique is unmatched and every one that has seen his miniatures in person leaves with a sinking suspicion in the pit of their stomach that Bobby is working on a whole another level than the rest of us.

    One of my daemons
    He is the man to beat on the U.S. circuit-we all know that. Worse still is
    that he primarily competes in the 40k categories, the same categories I
    compete in and I knew he was working on a 40k single figure. The road to a
    first place trophy (which was what I was hoping for) for me would have to go through Bobby.

    With that being said, he ...

    How to make a cheap yet effective spray booth.

    Hello everyone. I'm here to show you how to make a nice spray booth for airbrushing. I took what I learned from watching different videos and came up with what worked best for me. After collecting all the items, the job of putting everything together actually only took me about 30 minutes. Below is the list of items you will need.

    1.) Plastic storage tub $6-$10 (Mine was free because I found it in the garage).
    2.) Ventilation fan $18
    3.) Air... read more
