C-o-o-o-o-o-n! (pronounced Khan)


Hi All,

Just sharing my excitement! It's official, I've booked tickets for the boy and I to Kublacon 2017.

It will be the first honest to goodness convention for the both of us, we even got the wife and daughter to sign on, but they're going to meet up with family and do stuff in San Francisco.

My main purpose is to scope out what's going on out West and see about potential for future Oldhammer in the New World (Western States Chapter) events. Secondarily it is to introduce my son to more gaming and both of us to meet and play with Thomas Foss of Skull an Crown. I've been an admirer/lurker of his large wooden figure stuff for a long time. I like how kid friendly his stuff is and am especially looking forward to trying out his new jousting game.

We'll be on the lookout for other interesting games and will have last years Oldhammer T-shirt on for at least one of the days.

Now just to figure out what other stuff I need to bring for a pick up game with Dai and maybe Lasgunpacker when I get up by Sacramento.

Later.

  2. Effin sweet to hear mate! Kublacon should be fun for you to show the lad what gaming's all about.

    Just let me know when you're in the area and I'll make sure to keep my schedule clear. Let me know what you want to play too so I can get painting!

    1. Hi Dai, essentially the end of May and the first week of June. I think some time around June 5th we should be up your way, I'll let you know. I still haven't found my copy of Dragon Rampant. Don't know if you want to do Inquisimunda or something else. We have time to think about it.

    2. Inquisimunda would work! I have teams painted for it already. Would just need to work on some appropriate terrain.

    3. Sounds good Dai. I know I have some Inquisimunda lists lurking in the hard drive. How to make Abdul and his space chicken mercenaries into a gang?

  3. Great news, sure you and your valiant sidekick will have a blast as you open is world....:). Enjoy. And would be great to see a West Coast Event, now that we finally have one in Midwest!

    1. Thanks Kaleb, I suppose I could still look into trying to arrange something at Imperial Outpost as a venue. I just felt like maybe they are jerks, the painting competition has been poorly run.

    1. Hi Ray, yeah. I don't know which convention would be the equivalent of Salute, probably GenCon, but I have limited time and funds to be travelling all over the US. I only do it for Oldhammer because it's the only option at present.

  5. Have fun! But I'm sure you don't need me to tell you that...

  6. I'll have to check this clip somewhere with sound later...here at the library without sound it looks like Jim is going 'all Klingon'????

    Have fun at the convention!
