The annual Gen Con gaming convention is in the books and, as usual, it was quite the ride. This year over 70,000 people descended upon Indianapolis to game, cosplay, and enjoy the “best four days of gaming”. And that’s probably what you are here for, the games. The BGQ staff was on hand to demo […]
GenCon 2019 has come and gone now, and yesterday was a good time, but before we get more into that, just a quick usual weekly recap.Gaming was pretty decent last week with 3 games of X-Wing played, we are preparing for the NOVA Open Grand Championship at the end of the month, so we are trying different lists until we find one that we like. There will be a lot more X-Wing the rest of the month as I am still undecided on my list. BMG games will have to take a back seat until we get back from NOVA, we may and try to squeeze in one though for the month.Painting was also really good last week, I was able to complete another 6 models for Batman Miniature Game, though I do not have any more models currently prepped and ready to go so it may be a bit before I post anymore BMG models, which is OK since I have two Guild Ball Rookie models I need to also get completed or NOVA Open and they will be next in my Queue.Games Played: 3Models Completed: 6So now onto GenCon 2019.The day started pretty early fo
GenCon 2019 officially starts tomorrow, just like last year, my plan is too only attend this Sunday's event. The Sunday ticket has a special price of just $15, compared to $110 for all 4 days, or $75 on Saturday.My son and I are going to check out the Vendor Hall too see what items we can pick up. My list slightly changed from two weeks ago and below is an updated version (italicized), honestly I am not sure how much we will be able to purchase off our list, most of the vendors are required to charge the Indianapolis sales tax, so in some instances it may be better to just purchase the items online (especially if it is a large order and we can receive free shipping), but obviously we will not know till we get there.HobbyWashes/Paints (if there is something I see that I really want), maybe some more Army Painter paints.GW Contrast Paints?TerrainBMG/Guild Ball small obstacles/buildingsModelsBMG Bronze TigerBMG Teen Titans? undecidedBMG White/Dark Knight (Harvey)BMG Ventriloquist Crew? undecide
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
Yesterday afternoon tickets for GenCon 2019 went on sale to the public. When I wrote about my plans for 2019, I had mentioned attending GenCon once again in 2019, like I did in 2018 just for Sunday. Majority of GenCon is geared towards the RPG and TCG gamer's for organized events, though there are still a few of the miniature gaming companies running events and I thought spending $110 for a 4 day ticket and the price of hotel would be a bit too much for me. The Sunday ticket has a special price of $15 so it is not too bad to go check out the con for one day, grant it by Sunday most of the vendors are sold out of con exclusives that they bring with them, but it still is nice to walk the vendor hall. Before I purchased my ticket for my son and I, I doubled checked with him if he was still interested in attending, no hesitation with him, it was a yes. The last time he had attended GenCon he really does not remember as he was just a little kid back in the cons final years in Milwaukee

Life sometimes gets in the way of my hobbies. I hate it when that happens. As I described on my other blog, I had to cancel my GenCon 2014 trip at the last minute. In doing so, I lost out on money, planning, and expectations. I ...
