Well, it looks like I’m definitely going to Gencon this year. I’m excited! My one previous visit to Gencon was back in (I think) 2003, and I had a great time. It was, among other things, my first exposure to convention RPG games, in all their beauty and (in at least one case) horror. (The horror occurred during a game of All Flesh Must Be Eaten—and I’m not talking about the sort of horror you’re supposed to experience during a zombie RPG. But that’s a tale for another day.)
I hope to play in more events this time around than I did in 2003, when I spent too much of my time wandering the dealer hall spending money…. So I’ll be there again, armed with my D&D 4th edition books, my copy of World in Flames, and (if I get them painted in time) my Battletech miniatures!by
Who needs paint? Battletech was never meant to be restricted to painted minis alone.
Regardless, there are sure to be tons of minis, painted and otherwise, available at the official events.
See you there!
A very good point, Brian. Actually, knowing the quality of my miniature paintwork, I might save myself some embarrassment by just leaving them unfinished 🙂 Some of the painted minis I’ve seen at conventions are breathtakingly good.
And yeah, see you there! Are you running any Btech events at Gencon?
