[ARKHAM EVENT] "Grand Opening" - 10:00am Saturday 22nd May 2010

Post  twyearling on Tue Apr 13 2010, 04:51

The Arkham Gaming Centre will open at 10am on Saturday 22nd May 2010. For now this thread will serve as a teaser to what we plan to demo on the day. If you have any suggestions for other games, or indeed offers to help demo a game yourself, please let us know.


Boardgames

We will have a good selection of board and card games available to play (including Space Hulk, Memoir '44, Ra, Battlestar Gallactica, Last Night on Earth, Bucket King, Bohnanza, Incan Gold, Race for the Galaxy, Carcasonne, Cash & Guns, Samurai, Dominion, Smallworld and many more)


Please feel free to bring along any of your personal favourites!


Tabletop

Uncharted Seas

Tom (Guncutter) and possibly OJ (Jobo) will be running some games of Uncharted Seas for people to watch and participate in.


Warhammer 40k

Ronan Murphy, GW rep for Ireland, will be with us running some Apocalypse games and there may also be some smaller 40k battles going on around this.


Warhammer Fantasy Battles

It is expected that there will be at least one game of WHFB going on, being run by OJ (Jobo) and a friend. I'm sure they'll be happy to answer any questions from anyone interested in the game.


Legends of the Old West

Trevor from Table Top North will be running Lagan Gulch, a Legends of the Old West scenario.



Miniatures

'Painting Corner'

Pete (Lupercal) will be painting some miniatures and will be available to chat with people and show them various basic painting techniques; what he finds works for him, other methods and just be available to answer any painting related queries and to basically show people that there is more than one way to skin a cat.

He will also have, conveniently by his side, copies of various painting guides for you to flick through and to show you various professional methods and how things may differ from pro results when you miniatures are done.

There will be samples of different types of brushes and Pete will be more than happy to show you what uses they can be put to.


.... keep checking in as this thread will be updated regularly as we close in on May 22nd ...

Thanks

Phil, I spoke to Tom last night and he had said that Andy was talking to him about getting his hands on a manequin so that he could display his Sandtrooper armour for the opening day.

I'd be happy to display mine, either instead of Tom if he can't be bothered bringing his down from the attic, or aswell as his, providing there is a second manequin. Would it be possible to get two?

Are you aware of this idea?

Here's a photo for any newbies who don't know about our other geek pastimes: tongue

Cool idea, and would be very much appreciated. Not sure if i'd be able to get a loan of any mannequins though. I'll put the word out.
