Knocking those snakes out of my boots!
Back in the brisk winter vortex. The scorpions froze. As always at events, I plan on taking so many more pictures but that never happens. So here are a couple with some quick recaps. One of the locals took some of those newfangled Ipad videos of the event so I will link to those.
This then lead to the back drop. (Excuse the artist beret) Having limited knowledge of the Western Europe propaganda from the war, I began looking into pacific such documents.
Something that began as a google search turned into a split perspective of the realities/false hoods of the war. The monstrous image and vilifying of the Japanese people through the US propaganda contrasts with the models being a representation of soldiers. Just like any other nationality.
The previously posted casualty models fit as well. While it may have something to do with just being bored with the stock models. They also are a reminded of what we are representing on the table top and the sacrifices of war.
End Artist rant. Now for the coverage. Ken Burns forgives the blurry photos, you should too.
Great venue, food, and prize support.
