I'm not sure if everyone saw the news but Operation Sting has SOLD OUT! For the first time since I started running tournaments, I had to take the PayPal link off the registration page. We've sold 24 slots and have already started taking names on the on the wait list.

So if you are interested in joining the waitlist, please let me know and I'll get you added. The waitlist will be first come, first serve in order of receipt of names.

We are really looking forward to hosting this Sold Out event!

Well, in something entirely new for me, my army is painted. Completely. Two weeks before the event. I won't have to stay up till four AM the night before painting and basing. I've still got my display board to finish but a painted army was the huge milestone for me.

I might even finally show up ON TIME to an event for a change!

Really looking forward to everyone's armies.
