The Thrilling Conclusion of Our First Contest

A few weeks ago we had our first ever giveaway contest here on Combo Smite… it was silly but fun, and we got a fair number of people who put in guesses.

But in the end, one of our long-time listeners, Bennep, managed to win the prize… a small-based solo of his choice. Benoit (as he is named in real life) chose Sylys, an excellent option, and we here at Combo Smite happily sent him the model.

I asked Benoit to send me a picture of his Sylys when it arrived, and just this weekend he sent me the following two pictures, which I am happy to share with the Combo Smite community:

Although the sign does say he likes Adam the best… which makes me less happy… ^_^

Marc had an unpainted Sylys so I swapped my painted one for his because mine had been glued and painted and sealed in such a way that modding it would be nearly impossible.

Here is the Mod Continue reading

Painting ADD – Round 1

I’ve mention before my tendency toward crippling painting ADD Where I will have multiple units and solos and jacks and Casters in a semi-finished state for long periods of time.

I hate doing it.  I’ve been really good lately.  Finishing my Mage Hunter Strike Force and Destor Thane.  Then Completing my Earthbreaker in a little over a week.

Unfortunately its back.

There I was minding my own business when I look down at my desk and realize I’m not painting my 80% complete Vyros2 like I said I was going to do. Instead I see this:
