Welcome Back to the Labyrinth

"We have been away far too long, my friends," Ashoka declared, his face lit by the eldritch green glow of his staff. "But we have finally returned to the labyrinth whence our adventures first began."

"Just imagine the treasures that lie within," said Yun Tai, flexing his mighty muscles. "Wealth enough to live in luxury the rest of our days."

"And arcane artifacts of great power," added Ashoka his words dripping with avarice. "All ours for the taking!"

"Umm...guys?" Nysa interrupted. "Do you hear something dripping?"

The Spoils of Victory

"I won a Games Workshop painting contest and all they gave me was this lousy pen."




So, my Prince Althran miniature won the painting contest.  My prize, a cheap ballpoint pen bearing the Games Workshop logo is illustrated above.  If they had put this on a t-shirt it would at least have been funny.  Instead it's just kind of pathetic.

They also gave me a really ugly old Halfling Thief miniature from 1999.

I don't mean to be ungracious, but I think a corporation the size of GW could have done a little better than this for prize support.

Man, I thought your mini was awesome. Sorry about the pen. I was once employee of the month and for all my efforts, I got a pen. :( This is HILARIOUS! The word verification is "upurast" HILARIOUS! Apparently the interwebs know what you're going through! :) Congratulations on the win! Great mini!

Wield it with price, my friend ... wield it with pride.

Word ver: protac - what you need to take after winning a pen from GW.

Thanks guys. Both word verifications were absolutely hilarious! Laughter is the best reward.

I once won a lord of the rings month long campaign, and for my win, my buying and painting new minis i won the map of middle earth on the wall.

There's nothing like a crappy prize to make it all worthwhile!
