paint Scores, is there a problem?

OK so I'm conflicted. My early thoughts on the subject of painting and scoring are being derailed by my new mindset and I just don't know what to do.

Today I'm going to talk a bit about painting, judging and commission painting. Lets get to it!

Help me ye old internet.

A couple posts ago I (and swags) showed you the latest and greatest awards for Feast of Blades (LINK).
Well, Today I am asking for the internets somewhat-wise-ness to help me decide which Feats of Strength we will actually use at the tournament.  First let me describe what feast of strength are.

2000 point Purifier list (For custodes army)

For those of you who have been following this blog for a while you will remember that I have been planning a Custodes army for quite some time (Who hasn't!).  Lately though Feast of Blades has been taking up almost all of my hobby time and I haven't gotten to start any progress towards the Custodes army.  Well, today I think I have a list that could be worthy of my Custodes army.

FOB Champions Awards

Duke here and before Swags goes into his post let me give you a little intro. For those of you who aren't in "the know,"  I am organizing a mega-super-awesome event known as "Feast of Blades," this event is an annual convention held in Denver with all the bells and whistles of any other convention (Weekend long gaming, multiple tournaments, demo games, vendors, etc.)  However our main-line tournament is the Invitational.  To qualify for the invitational you had to place 1st or 2nd in a RTT held at one of our 32 qualifier locations in 7 states.  Those 64 people are then pitched against each-other in a very competitive setting.  The big question I was having was, "How do we show the elite nature of the people who have qualified, and how do we let them show that to others?"  Well, folks we have solved the problem...

Local Store Closes: Business discussion

I just heard yesterday that a local store is going out of Business.  It isn't my FLGS, but the community feels the pain none-the-less.  Today I wanted to talk about "How should a store be run."  And like the GW discussion, I don't want it to be a bunch of gamers with an axe to grind, I want to hear business ideas.
