Gencon. Anyone attending?

I hardly ever go now that its in my home town, but some coworkers have been talking it up and its just down the street...

If you've got a car, stop by the VMC's game night at the Game Preserve in Greenwood IN and say 'hi'!

The closest I've ever come to attending GenCon was financing my eldest son's trip there. Sad
BTW Wyrd is doing demos of their new skirmish game, Malifaux, at booth 1423, And actual gaming in the evenings in room 201. thumbsup

@Wyrd--Nice booth. Cool minis and a really great demo table. Steampunk western town very sweet.

Observation on Scale. Many miniature companies are reducing the scale of their offerings to true 25 or less. Others like Rom Bones are pushing 30mm to 32mm. As far as the reduced scale is concerned, I was talking to Julie Guthrie (not because I know her but because she is a nice person and will talk to convention geeks.) Anyway she reminded me that metal prices are crazy, so scaling down is a way to reduce costs. The scaling up is anybodies guess. Either way I didn't spend as much money as I would have because some minis where too small and others were too big... (This was not necessarily a bad thing...)

Price. This fits in with the above. Minis were expensive at the Con. I did overindulge in a Clearance booth selling off Rackham.

Acquisitions: Black Scorpion Pirates. Freebooter Pirates. MicroArt Orc bodies wearing great coats. MicroArt Conquistador heads. Rackham Goblin Pirates and misc. characters. Resin barrels, crates and other little incidental things bought at 50 cents a piece.
