Gen Con 2016 in Photos

Gen Con 2016 was great and I had a blast. This year was the busiest year that I have ever had with three True Dungeon runs, seminars, hobby events, and other craziness. My biggest three highlights for the show were:

  1. Going in with the rush at the opening of the vendor hall and buying the new Malifaux Crew Box, The Queen Returns for Neverborn.
  2. Doing the Hirst Arts resin casting class. Short and fast, but I learned so much about resin casting. Both safety tips and product tips.
  3. Being a part of the Infinity Seminar for what’s new that was done on Saturday and then walking away with a model for free. I had no idea how cool the seminar would be and actually walked out of their pumped about my PanOceania troops (which then got me to buy more models…..hmmmm…I see what they did there!!! Hahaha)

So we’ll be talking about this on the show I am sure, but in the mean time here are a ton of really quality pictures to tie you over!!!

Gen Con 2015 Wargamer’s Guide

So, just as many of us here in the United States are doing that are gamers, we are gearing up and excited for another year of Gen Con. That’s right, I am going to this grand daddy of super sized mega-cons again this year to check out the vendors, pick up some new games and to hang out with friends from around the country. It will be another great year.

So, one of the things that WiscoDice is doing this year is going to be a walk up challenge. If you bump into Conesy, yeah me, during the convention and let me know how this blog post helped you, I will give you a pair of the “winter edition” WiscoDice while supplies last.

So, ok, enough about what we’re doing. What’s at Gen Con this year that’s super cool or you should check out. Let’s start with the vendor hall. A few years ago, when I first started going back to Gen Con I noticed the increased number of different vendors for miniature games in the hall. Here are some ones that I think you shouldn’t miss.

The long pause

Folks may have noticed a big pause around the holidays and we came back and did some shows. We have hit another big pause here. I want to assure our fans it isn’t because Brian and I have rage quit Warhammer. Rather, if you didn’t know I recently have been dealing with a lot of issues with my right hand and arm. Being right handed this has drastically impacted my ability to hobby. Couple this with the uncertainty of what is going on with the status of Warhammer Fantasy and it’s been hard to work up the go to do hobby on Fantasy models.

I will note, that both Brian and I have been playing a few games. Honestly, Brian more than myself lately but in the grand scheme, things just haven’t worked out where the two of us can get together.
