Daily Chronicle: "GenCon 2019" 2 Weeks Away

GenCon 2019 is now 2 weeks away from the official start of the convention, just like last year, my plan is too only attend the Sunday event.  The Sunday ticket has a special price of just $15, compared to $110 for all 4 days, or $75 on Saturday.Seeing how my son and I only want to go to the Vendor Hall, paying anything more to "shop" would be ridiculous.  It will be more for the ambiance of the convention and pickup a few items if I see what I like, plus the last time my son had attended he was like 7-8 years old.I do have a shopping list (want list) planned out for the event:HobbyWashes/Paints (if there is something I see that I really want), maybe some more Army Painter paints.TerrainBMG Small obstacles/buildingsModelsBMG Bronze TigerBMG Teen Titans?BMG White/Dark Knight (Harvey)BMG Ventriloquist Crew?Arena Rex?Guild Ball New Rookies (if available)X-Wing?Warmachine/Hordes Oblivion?Some of the items would have to be on a show special price in order for me to purchase (mainly X-Wing) seeing how

Gaming With The Kids at Ambush Wargames Show

Yesterday I took my two eldest to Ambush which is run annually by my FLGS at our local showground.  I wasn't sure what to expect, and how long they'd want to stay...After a look round the stalls we enjoyed an introductory game of Blood Bowl run by the local gaming club Wolds Wargamers.  Both of them had so much fun they wanted to buy a copy straight away! It was a close and very swingy game, ending in victory for my daughter from the jaws of defeat.Both wanted to have a go at painting so we grabbed a free mini each and spent an hour or so in the painting area while the painting competition was being judged.  Suffice to say we didn't produce anything that could compete!We all got talking about all sorts of games - we didn't even get to play any of the boardgames which I thought they would make a beeline for - and my son even wanted to have a quick game of Infinity when we got home, so all in all a positive experience.Is this a shameless plug? Maybe … but it was a great event, all very friendly,

Hammers & Swords 2019

More then 7 years have passed. More then 7 years the fields of battle lay quiet as the sound of tournament drums faded at the Tin Soldiers of Antwerp. In those years, the Old World became the World that was, and the Mortal Realms where born... but not in the 9th Age. Here, heroes of the past still wage war on the hordes of days gone by...And now a new generation has risen, and the sounds of war will once again clammer in our clubhouse!It has been years, but my gaming club, the Tin Soldiers of Antwerp, is returning to the tournament scene by organising Hammers and Swords 2019.An idea grown from our Fantasy players, my only involvement is the behind the scenes administration and liasion with the board, so all the cudos has to go to the 9th Age players.So on the 29th of september this year, we will be hosting our first wargames tournament in almost 7 years, and the name of the game will be The 9th Age, the fantasy successor to the last edition of Warhammer Fantasy Battles and totally community developped.I wi

De Quaye Werelt 2019: Anno 1477

The Quaeye Werelt is a large medieval camp re-enactment, taking place in Deurne (near Antwerp) since 1999.During the event, people can witness how the medieval life went about, and buy things from specialised merchants.There are also demonstrations of re-enactors, like this medieval swordfight tournament.  But the highlight is definitly the battle for Antwerp, as the Burgundy army came to our beloved city to quell the rebellion on taxes.We did leave the battle a few minutes before the end, to beat the masses on the drinking lines.  And at 30 degrees, there was no way i wanted to wait a moment longer then needed.This was also Noshi`s first time at the event, and she found it a truly wonderful experience.  And one I can recommend to all you people as well to pass by and have a stroll in the wonderful park, transformed during this medieval fair in one big encampment!

Daily Chronicle: "Renegade Open 2019" Registration Open

Registration for the Renegade Open went live this morning.  The event will be held in Minneapolis Minnesota November 22nd-24th, and 2019 will be it's 7th year.I have never attended the Renegade Open in the past, so 2019 will be our first year, and my son and I are mainly heading up there for the Batman Miniature Game.  There are not too many conventions that run BMG (AdeptiCon/MuseOn Con/Renegade Open), so we might as well get some games in of BMG when we attend these events.  We'll be busy with Guild Ball in September and October, so November will be a nice change with BMG.The drive for us to Minneapolis about 8-10 hours, so unfortunately Sunday will have to be a travel day home, but with heading up there on Thursday, it will leave Friday and Saturday for gaming.The events we registered for are:Friday: Batman Miniature Game "The Dork Knight II" 250 Rep / $1000 FundingSaturday: Batman Miniature Game: "Nightfall III" 350 Rep / $1500 FundingI think with just two events I should be good for the we
