Convention Update!: Gencon 2015

Greetings and salutations! SeerK here once again.  Its has been a slow month on the blog. and this is mostly because I have been going full tilt at the new job.  I have been painting mini's, making terrain and constructing tables.  If you have not heard, SeerK is now working at a game store.  B.C. Comix in Battle Creek Michigan to be exact. I have also been getting ready to go to Gencon.  I have been drafted by Wyrd and Spartan to do demos at Gencon 2015.  I have to say I am pretty excited. This is my first trip to Gencon.  I know what you are saying.  " have never been to Gencon?!?!"  This is indeed true.  In my 20+ years as a gamer I have never been, despite my proximity to the convention.

I decided that this year I was going to change that.  I have been to Adepticon for many years and attended Origins Game Fair this year, so I decided its about time I did Gencon too.  I will be running Malifaux demos for Wyrd once again.  Come see me for a game at the Wyrd Games booth.  I will also be running demos for Spartan Games.  Come see me Saturday of the convention for an intro to one of Spartans awesome games, or just come and say Hi!

I will be continuing my series on the Relthoza after Gencon.  I plan on doing at least one "almost live" post while I am at the convention.  I will be rooming with Tim Toolen aka "Miniature Tim" of the Miniature Tim Blog during the convention. so look for updates and plenty of pictures from both of us.  Firestorm Armada, Halo Fleet Battles, Malifaux and Infinity will be had.

Its going to be a busy week for me so stay tuned for updates later this week! I would also like to remind all the Firestorm fans that we still have spots left in the Firestorm Armada tournaments and Narrative events at the 2015 Michigan GT in our backyard of Lansing, MI. Sign up today as spots may fill up quick.  There are some locals being slackers and have not signed up yet.  Reserve your spot now!

until next time as always...

Teach A Man To FIsh.....Building A Better Game Community

I have had a lot on my mind as of late.  I started a new job at a growing game store in Battle Creek Michigan.  One of the main things that I was hired for was to help build the war games community at the store and in the area in general.  I started doing what I normally do and started talking to all the players that played regularly in the store.  I wanted to gauge where the community stood at that particular moment in time.  As I talked to people, I started to really think about how I would build the community.  I looked at the thriving community that had built up in Lansing and tried to break down exactly what things were in place that made the community grow to the level that it was at.  To build a good community you need time and patience and there are a few other key things you need to make it happen.

Have A Happy Independence Day!

SeerK here with a quick post.  The Staff and I want to wish you a Happy 4th of July.  July 4th is special in the United States.  Today in the year 1776 the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence.  SO stay safe as you celebrate.

I would also like to update everybody on the Michigan GT.  We still have spots left in the 800 point tournament and the 1200 point tournament.  The Narrative event also has spots left, so sign up today and reserve your spot!
