Games & Gears Features Gen Con Brushes & Anima Battleboards

6 Comments

We had a nice chat with our friends at Games & Gears and had a look at their new brush set- which was a must have for Gen Con. While looking around the booth, we noticed some really cool terrain boards, which they explained were their Anima Battleboards. These boards come in a set of 6, prepainted and scaled best for 28mm games. They are super durable too! An added benefit is knowing they have distributors in the states and out, so there's no horrendous shipping expense along the way.

Games Workshop Is Here And Talking Age Of Sigmar.

18 Comments

We went to the beautiful Games Workshop Age of Sigmar stand to see if we could get them to do an interview. They were very polite and happy to talk to us, however they had instructions from GW not to do interviews, but they were very happy to talk to us about Age of Sigmar. So we shut off the cameras and had a very nice chat with wonderful lady from the UK (see they are here). We talked all about the Age of Sigmar world and terrain. She was so enthused about Age of Sigmar that it was infectious. The miniatures looked smashing all painted up.

Cosplay on Many Levels

One of the most fun aspects of Gen Con is the people watching. Cosplay is a big deal here and it doesn't matter if you buy your costume or make your costume. Its all about having fun and sharing that fun with others. Disney, Star Wars, and game characters are all represented here. I have to say, the girl dressed as Raputina from Malifaux NAILED IT!

That happens to me a lot. I use Chrome and random YouTube videos turn up completely silent (not just BoW ones so I know it’s not a BoW issue). For those ones that have the problem I watch me in IE. No clue why it happens or if it’s YouTube or chrome’s fault.

Well done and hats off to both of you.

As usual the best guest award has to go to Ronnie Renton πŸ™‚ That man is an unstoppable ball of energy.

The news from GF9 also has me waiting.

Spartan Games and Halo is also going to be fun to watch in the coming year. I just hope that DW just get put on a back burner.
