[ARKHAM EVENT] Fantasy mini-con - Sat 10th July 2010

Post  Guest on Sun Jun 06 2010, 00:28

To coincide with the release on Sat July 10th of the new Warhammer Fantasy rulebook we're proud to announce Arkham's first (of many) unique "Mini-Con" events.

Each mini-con will be themed (Fantasy, Sci-fi, Horror, WW2 etc) and will focus gaming activities of all types (TableTopWargaming, RPG, boardgames, CCG) around the theme of the day.

Our first mini-con on July 10th will of course be themed around Fantasy, and we're opening it up to anyone who wants the prestige of being among the first to host their own game at Arkham's first mini-con. Years from now, once we've dozens of these under our belt, you'll always be able to say you ran a game at the very first one!

We'll be expanding the concept of the Arkham Mini-Con to draw prestigious gamers and groups from further afield, and also play host to guests from some of the gaming world's most exciting suppliers, hopefully playtesting unreleased games and products.

For now we'd like to invite you to post below what fantasy based game you'd like to host on the day. We'll be able to cater for dozens of different games. Let's make this a day to remember and set the bar high for the next Arkham Mini-Con! Post the following information please;

Category of game (TTW/RPG/BG/CCG)
Name of game
Minimum number of players
Maximum number of players
Game time needed


Before the event, we'll gather all the submissions and schedule the games throughout the day.

If you know anyone who'd be interested in this who isn't already a member of the forum, please encourage them to register and participate. We want to re-invigorate the gaming scene in Northern Ireland but need your help to make it happen!

I have been talking to my mates and it looks like we are going to go for a road trip to visit on that date.

I don't think we will be able to host any games as none of us have any completed fantasy armies but I will bring up all the completed miniatures that I have.

Excellent, looking forward to welcoming you. If you're staying over, we'd recommend either Highways Hotel or Curran Court Hotel, both in Larne, only 5-10 mins away from Arkham.

Could run a War of the Ring demo game. Maybe borrow some stuff from Mithrandir for it and have up to 3 per side. estimate 3 hrs so could run 2 sessions in the day.

maybe someone could run Warhammer Fantasty Roleplay (any version in the Morgue?) or any fantasy setting game?

Can also help out running the Warhammer games inbetween and depending on availability/demand. Anyone able to run a few boardgames? i know Trev has 'Descent'. there are a few others Settlers of Catan?

I'll be up on Wednesday hopefully with Pug, that's Mithrandir junior, who isn't so junior and can be named after the Rift War's legendary wizard as he reads enough of it.
There's no problem with Weeivor using any Ring kit I have, I'll be bringing what I can find on Wednesday, so we can sort through it then.
If all else fails I can fill the Catahoneycombs with a collosal city, an awful lot of greenskins and host of Ulthuan at short notice!! It's the staff you see - blinding...

I have a custom scenario written up for WFB, the battle for Hell Fenn (Vamps vs Empire/Dwarves (any good race tho), and I could easily bring about 3-4 k of Vampires up to run that if you wish. Also, I have a large Fallen Realms army, so if the WotR is a go ahead, il bring them too...

Is anyone travelling up from Belfast?
