Gencon is coming again!
|here thar be gamers|
Once again, Indianapolis will be invaded by hordes of dice-bag and rulebook toting folks.
I shall be one amongst the horde again. With such a large event in my own backyard (like 10 blocks from where I work), how can I resist? (I could, my saves vs. spending money are pretty good)
I'm of course going as a GM. I'll be running Flames of War stuff again this year with Able Kompanie.
We're presenting two scenarios this year:
Stalingrad (and it's massive 8ft city table of DOOM!)
Vietnam (Run through the jungle)
I'll be running Stalingrad for both slots Saturday. I think there might even be a few slots open for it. It's a mid-war Soviet vs. German mostly infantry slugfest. We include more objectives, and it's mostly for people wanting to learn FoW. Just stay out of the buildings if a Bunker Buster is around...
I helped play the Vietnam scenario this past Sunday with a few of the other guys who will be running it. Troy does a quick recap over on his blog: Dice and Flames
The scenario can get pretty rough for the US, with them having to defend the LZ against the oncoming People's Army of Vietnam forces breathing down their necks. If the Airmobile infantry can hold out until the Armored Cav and heavy tanks make it, they're good to go... but it's a rough road to get there.
In addition to the Two scenarios, Able Kompanie is running three tournaments:
Early War 1000pt (on a 4'x4' board)
Mid War 1485pts (2014 nationals point lvl)
Late War 1725pts (2014 nationals point lvl)
It looks like there will be three groups running 40K and Fantasy games this year. 7 40K events, 1 Fantasy, and an Apoc game. Last year there was only the Apocalypse game...

so if any of you are going to Gencon, stop by the Able Kompanie FoW events in the miniatures hall and say 'hi'.
I'll be hanging out there.

oh yeah, I almost forgot: IUPUI (that place I work) will have a group at Gencon also:
the Dept. of Informatics
I might have to take a few Grad classes from the Gaming informatics guys, since I am considering Bioinformatics (I want a job if I get the degree).
