Prepare Yourselves, UCON Is Upon Us!

SeerK here.  Ok Boys and girls its that time of year again. Once again the Craftworld Lansing team will be bringing you
the Craftworld Open at UCON. This is now officially an annual event. It will be a 3 round 1850 RT style tournament at UCON which is in the beautiful Marriott on Eaglecrest in Ypsilanti Michigan.

But wait theres more! This year I am expanding the War games Coverage. Friday night from 6pm to 10pm I will be running demonstrations and playing Games of Firestorm Armada. Saturday I will be Running Flames Of War from 2pm to 6pm. PG_Hick will also be running an event Saturday. Warmachine and Hordes Players rejoice. We have a Tournament going 10 am to 7pm

Sunday we will be rounding out the weekend with The 2nd annual Craftworld Open. Dice roll at 10am so I suggest heading over to the UCON website and pre registering for the events. UCON has a lot more to offer if you are a dedicated gamer. RPGs, Boardgames and much more. SO why not come down for the whole weekend.

Pre-registration is now open at UCON's website. Day badges are $10.00 for Friday and Sunday and $15.00 for Saturday. A weekend Badge for all 3 days is only $20.00. A badge is required for participation. The ticket for the Craftworld open is an additional $6.00. The tickets for Flames of War and Firestorm Armada are $3.00 in addition to the badge. Nick Huston my main man on the inside will be running Xwing that weekend as well. The Warmachine Hardcore on Saturday being run by PG_Hick is $6.00.

SO preregister. There are 30 spots for the Craftworld Open and 40 spots for the Hardcore. Preregistering not only reserves your spot, but gives us ammo to get more space if we exceed our allocated amount.

I will be announcing missions and any FAQ decisions over the Next Month. I will say one thing. This year I am requiring painted models for the Tournament. All models must be to a 3 color standard and WYSIWYG. I want to raise the bar across the board this year. Literally and figuratively.

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to shoot me an email or Tweet me on Twitter. I look forward to seeing you all at the convention.

Until Next time.....

Blood Runs, Anger Rises, Death Wakes, War Calls!!!!!!!!


  1. I like that you are "encouraging" painted models. I don't mind playing against mismatched, partially assembled or partially painted/unprinted models in random pick up games, but I kind of feel like tournaments and events should be to a higher standard than your everyday game.

  2. Good luck on your events. Make sure you publish an event round up after so we know how it went.

  3. I was thinking I should go this year - but it turns out I'll be on a cruise in Hawaii. So... :)

  4. 40k approved forge world stuff allowed?
