Armies on Parade

Ty's army

Our local Games Workshop store had an “Armies on Parade” event on Saturday.  Ty walked across the street to enter his impressive AoS army.  In all, there were over 30 very cool armies on display.  You can see more photos here.

GenCon approaches

Space Hulk playtest – thanks to Josh for the photo

It is a little more than a week until GenCon so we are working on finishing up things for the events we are running this year.  One of those things is adding a second level to the Space Hulk board.  The guys from Creative Gamescapes (they make the terrain pieces we use) have been gracious enough to provide some support and also sent me a sample of their new Spaceship X crew miniatures.  They have just launched a kickstarter to produce the crew minis as well as finance another run of Spaceship X plastics,  and if they are successful enough to meet their stretch goals. produce some new rooms/corridors and the Level 2 parts in plastic.

The Space Hulk event is in pretty good shape although there always is more details that can be added.  The 40K RPGs sessions are in good shape too but I still need to printout the character sheet and handouts.  And finally on the Zombicide front Ty is busy painting zombies.

the B.o.D. at GenCon 2013

Gen Con 2013

Ty and I will be running a variety of events at GenCon this year. I’ll be running a Space Hulk event twice on Saturday along with a Deathwatch session on Friday night. Ty is running a custom Zombicide scenario on Friday and Saturday. All the events sold out in the first few hours of event registration. Look for previews and more information on the events coming in the next few weeks. 79 days until the most wonderful time of the year!
