FRIDAY GAME(S): 

Title: A Fistful of Kung Fu! 28mm Skirmish [Running Twice] 

Time-Slot: Friday, Feb. 13 @ 1PM-5PM and 6PM-10PM (Location: GH 1 & 3) 

Rule-set: A Fistful of Kung Fu by Osprey Wargames

Description: Fists and fireballs are flying fast and furious in this dynamic, humorous, and fast-paced skirmish game of martial arts mayhem using Osprey’s A Fistful of Kung Fu miniatures (an official variant of the popular Songs of Blades and Heroes system). We will play several narratively-linked scenarios set in a pulp era of honorable martial artists, gentically-altered apes,  nazi zombies, and eldritch horrors. Easy to learn rules and miniatures will be provided. 

Additional Info: GM is open to player provided gangs pending prior communication and approval. Send an email. 

(Running Event Twice)

 

SATURDAY GAME(S): 

TitleHeresy on Roanoke37

Time-Slot: Saturay, Feb. 14 @ 6PM-12AM (Location: Hall Table 7 &8)

Rule-set: Inquisitor 54mm by Games Workshop, Specialist Division. 

Description: It is the 41st Millennium of the Imperium of Man and contact has been lost with colony of Roanoke 37. The shadowy leaders of the Inquisition have dispatched Inquisitor Heliox and his coterie to the ore-rich mining colony to discover the root cause. Could it be failure of the astronomicon? A local revolt by perpetually disatsifed mine-workers? Something more insidious? Outright heresy? Will the foul taint of chaos be found on yet another of the Imperiums world?  

The convention game will involve a series of linked games using Games Workshop’s 54mm narrative game engine, Inquisitor. The easy to learn rule system set in world of Warhammer 40,000 merges elements of roleplaying with skirmish-scale miniatures gaming. Typically players control only a few models (sometimes only one) allowing for a more immersive, narrative gaming experience with some of the best elements of both genres. Miniatures will be provided. 

Additional Info: The game will use some rules modification and streamlining of ruleset to accommodate convention constraints and gameplay. GM is open to player provided models/characters pending prior communication and approval. Send an email. 

 

 

SUNDAY GAME(S): 

 

 

Title: A Creeping Shadow Over Warlock, Mass.

Time-Slot: Sunday, Feb. 15 @ 5PM-11PM (Location: Hall Table 3 )

Rule-set: Strange Aeons (1st Edition)

DescriptionIt is 1933 and a creeping shadow of despair has settled on the town of Warlock, Mass. The US government’s secretive Threshold agency have been dispatched to deal with the mythos threat. We will play several linked games using Strange Aeon’s 28mm narrative skirmish-scale miniature system, that pits government agents versus the eldritch forces of the cthulhu mythos. Easy to learn rules and miniatures will be provided.

Additional Info: The game will use some rules modification and streamlining of ruleset to accommodate convention constraints and gameplay.
