Episode 048: Gamehole Con Wrap-Up

Peter convinces a dozen random strangers to conduct research on how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop.*

We are also starting a new Twitter hobby challenge in December so watch for details on that. We do provide details in the episode, so if you would like to get a head start on the challenge, listen to the entire episode.

Episode 048

Gamehole Con

It was an incredible time at Gamehole Con.  The 30k & 40k events had plenty of participation.  The narrative event was all we could hope for.  The battles went back and forth between Attacker and Defender all weekend.  In the end, the Attackers prevailed by close margins.

I want to thank Jarred of the Bolter Club for letting me help design the missions and run a day of the events.  He worked incredibly hard all year to make enough terrain for the event and it looked amazing.  We even had the army that was won at the Nova Open involved (whoever painted that, it was off the hook).

I look forward to next year.  This was only the beginning.  This event is going to grow into something spectacular I just know it.

Episode 042

 

I spent the day at Pegasus Games in Madison, playing in an event ran by the local MYCL gaming group. Kenny from the Combat Phase was the event host. I had a great time, met some new people and even won Best Painted. I was really happy to be able to participate in an event that wasn’t my own for a change.


The event was a more narrative driven tournament, which meant the missions were story driven with an over arching theme, in this case the great rift as it happened. Also, this required a two paragraph story on your force and they wanted it based on a Black Library book or codex. Mine was the Honoured Sons of course, expanding on the one paragraph about them in the codex that has them fighting a Tyranid Hive Fleet Jormungandr.

I included some pics of a few armies that were on display.

Thanks again Kenny for running this event.
