HBOhio – Character Shots

It’s been a while since I posted more pics from HBOhio last April, but the recent Thanksgiving holiday has me feeling … well … thankful!

So with that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the cast and characters that composed this play of awesome:

Thanks again to those who took the photos and made them available.

Falling Dominoes – from bruce to Bear

Sometimes you can follow an event in the Halo Community like falling dominions – each action leads to another, and another, and in the end you have a bunch of dominoes.

Wait, no. You have something awesome, that’s what you have! Here are the actions in this case:

Postmortem calls for fans’ renditions of the Forerunner Capital

Sword and Shield

PM points out to the illustrious Mr. Bear that there is a freakin’ sweet illustration he should check out

Sword and Shield

Greg Bear agrees – freakin’ sweet indeed

(If you haven’t checked out Postmortem’s Visualizing the Halo Universe, head over there. He’s now on Round 14 and it’s great to see how other fans picture these fantastic settings and characters.)

Like I said earlier, you have something awesome – a great trail of creativity and communication that’s connected fans with those who’ve directly shaped the universe.

HBOhio – small group shots

A rumba of rattlesnakes. A congress of salamanders. A gaze of raccoons.

I’m not sure what you call a group of HBOers, but here are my favorite group shots of HBOhio – enjoy!

 Once again, it is our job to finish what the flyboys started.

We are leaving this ship, platoon, and engaging the Covenant on solid ground.

When we meet the enemy, we will rip their skulls from their spines, and toss ’em away, laughin’! Am I right, Marines?

– Sergeant Major Avery Junior Johnson, from Halo:Combat Evolved
