Well I have been asked to run an event at UCON this year. For those of you not familiar with UCON, it is a Game convention that is based in the Ypsilanti Ann Arbor area of Michigan. The convention has been going on for quite a few years. It covers the width and breadth of games. Role playing, board games, card games and of course war games.
I will be running a Tournament at UCON this year on Sunday October 28th. The “Craftworld Open” as I am calling it, will be an 1850 tournament using the standard force organization. Allies and Fortifications will be allowed. I am encouraging players to bring painted armies, but it is not a necessity. Models must be fully built though and WYSIWYG. If the tournament does well I may require painted armies in the future.
The cost to participate is $15.00. A day pass to the Convention is $10 dollars and $5 dollars to register for the tournament once you have your convention pass. Registration information can be found at www.Ucon-gaming.org. The convention is being held at the Marriott Ann Arbor/ Ypsilanti at Eaglecrest. It starts Friday, so if you are a gamer in general I would check out the events they are having over the weekend. There is a special deal on rooms for $79 a night with the promo code UCOUCOA. I will be down for the weekend hanging out with my Ypsi Seer Council.
I will be posting Missions next week and giving more details on prizes as well as pimping our sponsors. This should be a fun time. I have heard many say they wish there was a nice Game convention in Michigan. Its the gamers like you that make those events possible. So come out and support a local convention and play some games. I hope to see you there.
Well next time I will be discussing the continuing evolution of my Footdar. I would like to get my win record up a bit. I have added some more long range fire power to the list to make it more effective. I fealt the long range punch was lacking versus foot units. Also the time of Chaos is nigh. I have a feeling, judging from the pictures, that we are all going to have our hands full as the first official 6th edition codex drops. The legions are stirring and the Eye Of Terror is opening to spill its foulness into the galaxy. OST is getting 2 codexs in a row........its not fair.
Until next time....................
Blood Runs, Anger Rises, Death Wakes, War Calls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
