The Gen Con Experience

Gen Con 2014 – Awesome, Overwhelming, Exciting and More than Satisfying

There are many reasons to go to Gen Con.  Likely the biggest is their slogan “The Best Four Days in Gaming”.  While I do game, it was not the main reason I ended up at the 2014 event.  I went primarily to meet, record and interview some of the musicians we play at indienation.fm.  I also went because Through Gamer Goggles offered me a free space on the floor in their hotel.  In short, I had an affordable opportunity.  It was my first Gen Con.  It was one heck of an experience and I thought I should write about it here.

Lich Lord Terminus

Cryx Warcaster – Lich Lord Terminus

Today, I am going to cover a few more which are also simple and easy to make.  Both taking little time, material and effort.  Today, I will cover trees and coiled wire.

Second Childhood?

One of my childhood passions was war gaming.   I would stay awake entire weekends, making terrain, painting models and gaming with friends.  Maybe a second childhood has occurred or it is simply the acceptance of an addiction, but the bug has bitten me again… pretty hard.  This time I have no intent of straying away.

While I enjoy the aspect of the gaming, I am one of the gamers who believes that the terrain and playing surface are a major part of the game.  I really think it adds to the feel of the game.  I thought I would share how I made some of my props.
