Doubletree Hotel, Austin, Texas
So by now you’ve heard all about our cool events and formal events. Now its time to talk a bit about our BoLScon 2009 after-hours events. Yes that’s right, you can play like crazy folks all day, and drag yourselves back for even more fun in the evening.
Friday – August 21st: Lucky 13s and Open Gaming.
If you guys are taking part in the Lucky 13s campaign across the country, have no fear. You can take part in the latest campaign Apocalypse battle and get your participation logged and submitted to GW by our local FLGS.
The Open Gaming is not just a big set of cool tables ready for pickup play. We will have a large set of our own “big-dude” models available for you guys to use (just be careful). If you’ve ever wanted to field some of our Reavers, Revenants, Gargants, an Eldar Phantom, or even our own Capital Imperialis, this is your change to have a great time with some awesome models.
Saturday – August 22nd: 40k Pod-Racing!
Oh you heard that right. The racing pits are open Saturday night, so grab a skimmer of your choice and see if you’re the fastest racer in the galaxy. Here is your totally free set of Pod-racing rules for you to practice with in your local playgroups, and we hope to see you at the track!
If you have a bits box and a need to show off your conversion skills, brew up a 40k Pod-racer the likes of which have never been seen and see if you can win the grand prize in our BoLScon Pod-Racer Hot-rod Exibition. All races are eligable. Now this isn’t just some simple conversion challenge here. We want you guys to pull out the stops on your pod-racers. If it has neon running lights, vibrates, hops, plays music when you touch it, has the most high-gloss metallic paintjob a 40k table has ever seen, or anything else, come ready to impress! Here are some pictures to help inspire your hot-rod conversions:
War of the Ring Tournament – The very first War of the Ring GT event. This three game event runs on Saturday August 22. We expect to see all the monsters of Middle Earth rampaging around the field in this event.
War of the Ring Tournament – On Sunday August 23. That makes two days of tournaments for your War of the Ring armies, with two days of prizes!
Warhammer Fantasy Point Tournament – Two days and seven games of Fantasy battles. One of the few tournaments ever run with enough games to determine a true winner based on the Swiss System. No composition restrictions, just strategy and tactics on the field. Please note that this is not a ‘Ard Boyz event, so Sportsmanship matters – taking a maximum Power Dice Tzeentch list and being a jerk about it is not going to be a winning strategy.
Warhammer Fantasy Consolation Bracket – For those who have a bad day one of the Fantasy Tournament, we have a totally separate track for day two, the Consolation Tournament. And unlike many other Consolation Tournaments, ours has placings and prizes. While no one is required to move to the Consolation Bracket, we expect that this offering will be fun for all participants.
Warhammer 40K Tournament – Two days, seven games, maximum carnage. Come find out if you’re the best tactician in the Grim Dark Future.
Warhammer 40K Consolation Bracket – Just as in the Fantasy bracket, some people will have a bad first day. The Consolation Bracket lets you reset your game face and play day two for prizes and placings, putting all those 1s behind you.
Warhammer 40K Narrative Events – Competitive tournament events not your thing? We’ve got just the ticket for people that prefer a game with a story. Based on our own Horus Heresy, Macharian Crusade, and upcoming Badab War sourcebooks, we will have 2 days of 3000 point action for you. With prizes for accomplishing events in the storyline (and for dramatic failures, too), the Narrative Events are the perfect anti-tournament option.
Painting Contests – We have painting contests in 12 categories, with multiple placings possible. Expect to see some of the finest painting in the US on display.
$4000 Prize Pool – Lots of Forgeworld goodies, battalion boxes, and more.
~Come on down to beautiful, sunny Austin and enjoy a weekend of your favorite games with the Fly Lords. We’ll see ya there!
