Off the top of my head:
A five game 40k GT
A three game Fantasy tournament
A separate 3 game 40k GT on Friday allowing Forgeworld Rules!
Several 500 point Kill Team tournaments for 40k
A "Golden Demon" type painting competition called The Iron Ogre.
Talisman, Munchkin, more more more!
Oh and there is over 3 grand worth of prizes.
To top it off, Mechanicon has been working hard at improving their already very nice custom built tables with even better terrain.
Finally, the main gaming hall has it's own bar with dollar pizza and drinks, as well as affordable beer throughout the weekend! At Mechanicon, you get so much more than a 5 game 40k GT. You get the opportunity to immerse yourself in gaming virtually nonstop from Friday Morning until Sunday Night. Whether it is in various organized tournaments for fantastic prizes, or self organized pickup games with buddies. (I want you Ted Nagel. And yes Brad, we will see each other on the table too.)
So do take a look at The Mechancon site. The price tag might seem like a lot, but in the end, it is worth every penny and then some. There are still spots open in the 40k GT, so get yourself signed up! If you have been looking to put a smack down on Jawaballs, we can arrange that too. I am opening myself up to all comers.
What list am I playing? I will be bringing my new Hero Hammer assault list. I intended to play it in 4 major GTs. Nova, BFS, Mechanicon and The Conflict. This will be my third outing with it. I have little hopes of a Best Overall repeat, but I am going to do my best! I learned a few things at Battle for Salvation and hopefully will be able to have a chance at beating some of those armies that previously tabled me. But I had to drop The Sanguinor from the list since Mechanicon is only 1850. I dropped Sang and added a Rifleman Dread for some much needed long range punch. I would have preferred another close combat scout squad because they rock the house, or maybe devastators for the stronger shots, but simply did not have the time to paint them up to the proper level. It will be a late decision on whether I go with the rifleman dread, or just a close support Multi melta dread. I wanted a furioso but I cant spare the Elite slot.
Soon it will be time to start thinking about a new army. What do you think guys? Grey Knights or Necrons! I also have a secret Xenos project in the works...
More to come on that once I clear out some commissions.
