I wasn't lying... I really did have six stands of Dark Elf Warriors "nearly done." They're not winning any painting contests, but damn if they aren't functional! They look fine on the tabletop.
I found out that indeed I AM going to be running StarDust Ground at Gnomecon on Friday night, March 4th from 6PM until we all fall asleep. I need to work up a scenario or two and repair my tokens. Feh.
