Awesome: 'Challenge Coins 2011 - for real now' by TOGSolid
The big glass hemi-cylinder over the entrance to the Convention Center is pretty iconic of the location of PAX, maybe that's the route we could consider this year instead of the city skyline? Something like this:
Maybe it's just me, but the Pavlovian response to seeing that arch is OMGPAX
Also: are there any extra 2010 coins left over in a box somewhere? Never got my hands on one last year
I think I have an extra at home. I'll check when I get home from work next Friday and shoot you a PM if I do.
EDIT: As funny as it would be to have lines be featured on the challenge coin, that's almost something that's only really funny to the veterans. If someone was willing to simplify the arch's design a hair (otherwise it'd be a muddled mess due to all the glass framing) it'd be a good candidate. So far for me, something iconic for PAX is how you always go expecting to do all sorts of things and end up getting HORRIBLY distracted by something awesome going on at the convention. How this could be turned into an image I have no idea.
(curse you Steel Battallion)
At the point in time when bullets can pass through the interdimensional walls, when firepower takes up the entirety and eternity of space and time all being stuck in a neverending life and death cycle as bullets recover and destroy their bodies in quick succession, no one able to think about anything but the sheer force of the bullets rapidly flying literally everywhere in the materium turning the warp itself into nothing but a sea of semi-automatic weaponry. Then there will be enough dakka.
