Onward to Origins! FSA and Infinity!
If you have never been to Origins, it is a a good warm up to Gencon. The convention occupies the same amount of space as Gencon, in years past at least 2016 is a big event space expansion year for Gencon. However attendance is not as crazy as Gencon. It still has over 14,000 people in attendance though. All game genres are represented so it is a nice convention to bring the whole family or a diverse group of gamers.
I am once again teaming up with 40KOrigins to bring you the gaming public a whole slew of miniature and war gaming events. For my Part I am doing some Learn to Play Firestorm Armada classes and some Infinity Boot Camp sessions. I am also going to be running the first Firestorm Armada Tournament at Origins. I call it the Columbus Incident. I am also going to be running Origins first Infinity I.T,S tournament. I call it the Columbus Brawl.
The schedule for those is as follows
6/15 5:00 pm
6/16 9:00 am
6/17 9:00 am
6/19 9:00 am
These classes are about 2 hours and let you really sit down and learn the game. We ran a similar class at Adepticon this year. The Infinity ITS, the Columbus brawl will be on Friday 6/17 of the convention. It will start at noon and be 3 rounds, unless we have enough players for 4 rounds. Models do not have to be painted, but it is encouraged. We will have an ITS kit and I am in the process of getting some more prize support for the event. The "Boot Camp" sessions are as follows
6/16 12:00 pm
6/18 12:00 pm
So we will have some noon Boot camps for those of you curious about Infinity. Larry and I are looking forward to teaching and running these events at Origins. we are also looking forward to meeting some new people and hopefully seeing some familiar faces. I have put up Facebook events and the links are at the top of the blog page on the right hand side. all the details thus far are on those pages.
I will of course be updating everybody as more news comes my way. I will also start posting about Gencon as son as I know more about what is going on. We have also started planning for the Michigan GT at the end of September. At the beginning of September comes the NOVA open in Virginia. Some of the WayGate team will be in attendance if everything lines up well. We will be there to play and support William and Mike (Bull99 and Ryjak) as they run a whole slew of events for Firestorm Armada. This culminates with an FSA GT which will be the first qualifier for The 2017 Schaumburg Prime Offensive North American Firestorm Armada Championships.
Yeah...I said Qualifier.....More on that later
Until next time crush the Alliance and as always...........
