September Events and Releases

September is a busy month, with a new D&D book, a Magic release, new Star Wars: Destiny and the start of a new Warmachine league.

We will have Tomb of Annihilation, the new D&D book, available Friday, September 8th. As a Wizards of the Coast retailer, we have the book available 2 weeks early. The new Adventurers League season accompanying the book has an interesting spin: “The death curse”. You can read more about it in the Adventurers League Primer.

We’ll have a limited number of boxes for Star Wars: Destiny Empire at War available September 15th for $99.

Our next build and paint event will be September 17th, from 3pm to 6pm. We’ll be featuring miniatures from Games Workshop, with a range of 40k and Age of Sigmar models available to assemble and paint. Already have something you’re working on? Bring it in and take advantage our our paints and tools!

Ixalan pre-releases have been scheduled for the weekend of September 23rd. We’re hosting our first ever midnight pre-release, as well as events Saturday morning, Saturday evening, Sunday morning and Two-Headed Giant Sunday afternoon. $24 if you pre-register and pay in advance, $28 day of the event.

Adding to our regular Wednesday Warmachine events, we’re starting a Journeyman League for new Warmachine and Hordes players on the 27th. Starting out with a Battlebox, players will gradually add to their army until they have a 75-point army. We’ll have more information available later in the month, so keep an eye on our Facebook page or our event schedule for more info.

Rounding out the month, we will be doing a learn and play for Sea of Clouds on September 30th. Participants will have an opportunity to win a special promo captain and a chance to buy a copy of the game at a discount. It’s a fun, easy to learn game that’s good for mixed age groups.

Free RPG Day is June 17th

We’re participating in Free RPG day, which means we have some one-shots and quickstarts to give away. One of the products highlighted this year is Paizo’s Starfinder game, so we hope to have some quickstart guides to give out. How do you get one? Come in and run a game for our customers, and we’ll save one for you.

We also have Runescape, Dungeon Crawl Classics, Pathfinder Adventure Card Game and more to give away.

New Faction to be released for Warhammer Age of Sigmar

We had an opportunity at GAMA to see the new faction for Age of Sigmar – Kharadron Overlords! GW describes them as  “sky-fleets of iron-clad warriors aboard fantastical machines of war armed with powerful aetheric weapons.” Everyone else called them “steampunk dwarves” as they ride in an airship and wear full armor.

We’re taking pre-orders soon so drop us a line if you’re interested.

GaMA News and Finds

Well, we’re fresh back from GaMA 2017 and some of the latest news is trickling out. You may have seen updates and CMON’s Song of Ice and Fire miniature game, or the new faction for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar (spoiler: they’re dwarves). We sat in many presentations and talked to a lot of vendors. After talking to the Army Painter guy, we decided to bring in their line of paints to supplement our Citadel paint line. We should be getting that in next month.

Along a similar line of thought, we will be bringing in the new unpainted minis from WizKids for D&D/Pathfinder. We have a sample to show off, and it looks amazing. We were equally impressed with the Starfinder minis Ninja Division will be producing to go along with Paizo’s new Starfinder fantasy space epic. We’re really excited about the Starfinder release, and will post a blog about what to expect at release. There’s a special freebie Paizo is releasing as part of Free RPG Day (coming June 17th) that gives a sneak peak at the system. We’ll have in store, along with other giveaways that day. Starfinder sounds different, yet familiar to the existing Pathfinder system. The demos were always full, otherwise we’d have a better report!

We will be placing an order for Wasteland Express Delivery Service. Again, the demos were always full but we had a chance to watch game play and it looks like a lot of fun. A little bit of Tank Girl, a little bit of Gammarauders, a little bit Mad Max with a dash of a legacy game added in. Expected release is later in 2017. We had a chance to look at Runewars (no demos, sadly) and were intrigued. It looked to be more in line with a skirmish/wargame sort of deal, with the models on trays so you can move them all at once, and using a dial for movement familiar to people who have played Fantasy Flight’s Star Wars Games. We have a copy on order, so if you’re interested we can hold it for you!

AEG had a number of announcements at the show, including the new Smash Up add-on Big in Japan where you can play as magical girls, pocket monsters, sentai or kaiju. We will be bringing in their organized play kit for Smash Up All-Stars this summer. They’re encouraging people to fill out a survey and get an exclusive Smash up faction. I thought we should pass along the offer in case anyone wanted to play as Sheep. If anyone is interested in a pre-order for Sakura Arms or Unicornus Knights please drop us a line. They should be released later this year as part of their “Big in Japan” line.

On the RPG front, besides finding out about Starfinder, we had a short talk with the folks behind Green Ronin Games and will be bringing in their Fantasy AGE and Blue Rose RPGs. Fantasy AGE might be familiar to people as the system used for Wil Wheaton’s Titansgrave on Geek and Sundry. Blue Rose is back in print after a couple of years and updated to use the AGE system found in Dragon Age and Fantasy AGE. It’s based on romantic fantasy, like Mercedes Lackey and Jacqueline Carey. The art is fabulous and it has quite a following so we hope to add it to the growing list of RPGs the store supports.
