Warhammer competition in Rosemont, Illinois.

I guess this is what Warhammer is.

I went to a Warhammer competition in Rosemont today. Hold your excitement, please. Basically it was a bunch of guys playing with little action figures they paint and rolling dice and that means something. I don’t really know what it means but all I’m saying is that I don’t see the point in playing when OBVIOUSLY the guy with the biggest tank could just roll over everyone else and be done with it in two seconds. Just sayin’

And I was definitely one of maybe 7 girls in the entire place…

Apparently they award points for your theme and the guys I know decided that their theme would be The Village People…

I managed to find one guy who had the good taste to paint his little pieces pink with butterflys…

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.

    Val these pictures are amazing. They are some of the best in action tournament shots I’ve seen, and you have some really iconic moments in there.
    Thank you so much for coming and taking pictures of our silliness. I will shamelessly stealing some of these, as well as posting the link to a forum for the convention if that is ok with you. Sorry you were bored..but I warned you! 😛
    Thanks again, next time, more Chicago sightseeing!
