Over the past number of weeks I have been preparing buildings, terrain and armies in preparation for our local comic con. The con also featured some great cakes created by another of our members, and we thanked Katie for them!
This past Sunday House Lancaster attended the annual Comic con in Lancaster, Lancashire, UK which is a yearly event showcasing local comic book talent. with seminars, stalls and more. Among all this we were there to showcase our club and provide a decent games room for the public, where demo and participation games were available.
This was also a great opportunity to expand our club, by getting more members and showing a mere sample of what games systems we play. We had three main tables that stayed the same throughout the day, with two smaller ones that we could swap out.
On the larger we had Orks vs Death Guard in our 30k themed snow board, whilst games of Age of Sigmar and Bolt Action focused on the core starter sets, giving a nice intro into each system. We also had games of X-wing and Beyond the Gates of Antares with Batman: The Miniatures Game and Judge Dredd on hand when we needed to swap something out. Dropzone commander was ever present and the skirmish game Malifaux attracted a lot of attention!
Overall despite the early close (we stayed till the very end) the event was a success for us, gaining more members and having some fun in the process!
It goes without saying that I need to thank the fine fellows of the gaming group that helped me out no end, without them there is no House Lancaster! Special thanks goes to Ben , Chris ,Mike and Dave for sticking with it on such a hot day, I owe you all a beer!
