|This is one of the nice Austinites I've met this weekend. Cool dreads, cool tats, and hot pink.|
Cliffsnotes: Next up, Sweet Pix, the hunt continues, results for game 6, and swag!
The hunt progresses apace. I had compiled a list of 8 Space Wolves players, but I knew that a lone wolf had slipped through the cracks. That's what happens when you tipple while you scribble. Anyway, I stumbled on him today (no, not literally). I got the vibe that he could be the one I sought.
I was able to eliminate one player: Brent played a Space Wolf player in game 6, Marc Nuessen. He seemed very cool. When Brent slowplayed him (ok, not really slowplay), I heard Marc say, "no problem," and when Brent introduced me as his indentured servant (no name), Marc very politely shook my hand and gave me his name. Much better treatment than we people downstairs are used to receiving.
At lunch, Brent said he knew who the Uberjerk was and gave a description of him that matched my lead suspect, so I've gotta go sit in on his game next. I also have to see if Brent is now facing the Honky-slayer, because Brent did manage to win game 6 by a large margin.

After game 5 Brent celebrated his slightly victorious tie with 2-3 cups of coffee. He had ordered beer, but thought better of it before the waitress got away. Funny thing is, by this point he had already downed a large extra strong coffee and 2 red bulls. Throughout game 6 I brought him ice water, allegedly to keep him cool/hydrated. And just now I watched him take beer and clear-broth soup for lunch. It's my hope that Brent explodes in a shower of urine, triggered by his opponent across the table yelling, "YOU GOIN' DIE, H--" SHPLOOOSH!!! After every game, Brent says he's having a blast. Here's hoping the next one is literal!
SAJ has requested painting contest photos. Lemme lay it on ya, mah brother:

More to come. Last but not least, swag! I think the minis are from Mantic's Kings of War. The bag had lots of ads, but some good discount coupons as well.
