Gen Con 2014 Preview

So yeah, this Gen Con thing is happening again in about a week. Am I pretty excited, oh heck yeah. So this is going to be Conesy’s preview to Gen Con 2014. Unlike other previews though, where people talk about what the new games that are coming out, or what the top costumes are or anything like that, I am going to approach this from the top things that I am excited to check out this year.

But wait, there’s more!


Merry Mayhem 2013 Announced

Merry Mayhem 2013 will be on December 14, 2013 and we are accepting registration for all events via this website. Merry Mayhem is proud to announce that it is at a new venue this year and will be hosted at the VFW Day Post 7591. This is right down the street from Misty Mountain Games so travel, hotels, and sites to see should be the same as previous years.

Registration for Merry Mayhem 2013 can be found at the registration page. This year we are featuring registration for the event through the website. This is different then in previous years and this will help the event manage registration hopefully better for not only you as players but for those of us organizing and running events there.

The Warhammer army grand prize raffle give away has been announced as well for 2013 and it’s a big one! This year, for our 4th ever army give away we are talking Lizardmen. Just like previous years, this will be all brand new, all in the box, and will be a great addition to anyone’s Warhammer collection or wanting to start a new army. For that we are sure!

Merry Mayhem 2013 is also announcing that the Warhammer Fantasy Tournament is available for registration.

See you guys at our new venue for the fifth anniversary of Merry Mayhem on December 14, 2013.

Stay tuned for more announcements at the Merry Mayhem website for other events and activities and help make this years Merry Mayhem great!


Gen Con 2013

Well folks, another year of Gen Con is in the books and there was certainly fun to be had. I can say I had a great time this year, and even if you are just a Wargamer I found there was plenty to do and check out this year.

So, what was there to do?
Booths to check out

Games-Workshop Booth Of course, there was the GW booth which was overall bigger this year with a massive and really cool 40k display with tons of troops, giant vehicles, another such round base silliness. As well, Forgeworld and Black Library were there was cool stuff from Warhammer Forge on display in the case. For the most part, I didn’t notice anything really new there, but all in all it was really cool none the less.
