I’m getting caught up with my log that I was putting on Warseer here, so this post is a straight copy and paste job from my log on that site.
This is a recap of what happened last month in the paint and play, that way I’m all caught up. I had been posting this on Warseer, but I’m trying to consolidate here.

Our local gaming group at Dragon’s Lair Comics has a history of doing “Paint and Play Leagues” for fantasy. The premise is simple: start off with a small army (250-500 points), and then every few weeks increase the size by 250 points.
