More Help yourself Games

I have been a busy boy sorting out a few more games that I will set up and anyone who wants a try is happy to play. I will also be looking to try a few games myself on the Sunday.
So first up I remembered that Dad and I still have our Nercomunda stuff and as one of GW's best games I could not pass up the chance to bring it along
Next up a couple of Warlord Games rule sets that I have not had chance to play yet but actually have figures for.
Pike and Shot, I will be bringing along my ECW army which is big enough to split into two small forces.





And lastly Hail Caesar which I have heard good things about, again I have one huge army of Celts which I will split into two big forces for a civil (or uncivil if Ray and Fran get on it) war.

Blog-Con Bar and Hot-dogs

It was not something I was going to go for (as I am tea total) but via Facebook Diane and Bryan Ansell asked if we wanted a Bar at the Blog-Con weekend. By all reports the bar was well received at the Oldhammer weekend and with Diane and Bryan offering to cover any costs for a licence I accepted the kind offer.
So for the weekend their will now be a licenced bar and hot-dogs available.(below pictures from the Foundry website of the Oldhammer weekend)

Help yourself Games?

I am in the last few mad weeks of planning for Blog-Con and while I am overwhelmed by the amount of you who have stepped up to run games over the weekend I feel I can do a little more. I have two starter sets for X-wings and will have enough Ronin for two starter gangs (I may even dig out a few more old games I have). If I were to set up starter games for various systems (as we have the space) with all the information needed to play on a handout sheet (with quick ref sheets for game mechanics). Would you guys be interested enough to try them out? just grab a passing blogger or bring a friend and try out a new game.
And for your Information a list of the games being run over the weekend:
SAGA
Musket & Tomahawk
Dreadball
The Man with no Name Challenge (Cowboys)
VBCW
Chain of Command
WFB 3rd ED

Maybe if anyone else attending has smallish games like X-wing they would bring them along and we can set them up.

Peace James

Blog-Con shopping list's

Just a quick post to offer a suggestion, as you all know Blog-con is at the Wargames Foundry shop and I am sure that over the weekend one of two might be hit with a bit of shinyitis so I have a quick suggestion.
Foundry has the following Army deal offers

ARMY DEALS
1. WHEN YOU BUY THREE IDENTICAL PACKS:
YOU WILL RECEIVE AN EXTRA IDENTICAL PACK FOR FREE.

2. WHEN YOU BUY ANY EIGHT STANDARD PRICE PACKS FROM THE SAME RANGE:
YOU WILL RECEIVE TWO EXTRA PACKS OF YOUR CHOICE FROM THAT RANGE FOR FREE.

3. WHEN YOU BUY ANY SIXTEEN STANDARD PRICE PACKS FROM THE SAME RANGE:
YOU WILL RECEIVE SIX EXTRA PACKS OF YOUR CHOICE FROM THAT RANGE FOR FREE.

As you can see the more of one range you buy the better the price. So what I think you should do is find out if anyone else wants figures from the range you want and club together to get the best discount if 4 of you wanted some darkest Africa club together and buy 4 packs each then between you you can select 6 packs free. Or if you are looking to bulk out units with rank figures two of you can get 4 identical pack and pay for a pack and half each.
All it takes is a bit of pre-planning and even those of you who cant make it can get in on the act just work with some one who is attending.

Happy Shopping
Peace
James

Maybe if you are thinking of a range comment on this post to see who else is interested.

Four weeks to go

So it all goes down four weeks tomorrow I took a few pictures of the Foundry when I was there last month including a shot of the outside so you know what to look for (remember it is a factory shop). A warning from the Staff they have had a few cars broken into in front of the foundry so if you are staying for the day I suggest you use elsewhere.
