The Central Wisconsin Iron Gamers (we REALLY need to come up with a better name) has finally managed to run our own Who's the Boss event. We had over 130 unique warcasters and warlocks represented. We're hoping within a year or two we can push to get 100% coverage as we pick up a few new players and models ourselves. Here's some pictures of building the Doomball -- our bingo cage used to draw the bingo balls out, each bingo ball with a 'caster's name on it.
|Start with a $2.50 Walmart Bouncy Ball. Covered with layers of phonebook pages and glue to make the inner shell. Then start laying on the fiberglass fabric and resin.|
|Fully covered in fiberglass and resin.|
|Plotting out the hatch.|
|Hatch cut out, hinge and closing lock added, dowels added for spinning the ball.|
|Painted and Mounted on it's stand. The Doomball sadly had a cardboard hatch for it's first year as I didn't have time yet to make a proper one for it yet.|
|Cryx chicken jack sitting on top of the Doomball for scale.|
Day of the event hits, we have myself and 6 players. Between the 7 of us we pulled together (if I counted correctly) 133 unique Warcasters and Warlocks.
|Ashlynn and her new Mercenaries|
|Kaya 2, Numen of Furrigenesis.|
|I knew Elara was a Cryx warcaster|
|Irusk was given a new pet by his Empress.|
|Go forth my zealots! Wait, I think I'm in the wrong church...|
And to close out this post, I do plan on getting some painting done soon. In prep, these are the current "to do" list, all washed and ready for mold line cleaning and assembly. 2 months to Gencon. I'm hosed.
|Can I paint all of this in a month?|
