Gav Thorpe - Newsletter

Another Gav Thorpe newsletter...

In yesterday's email I mentioned that I'm planning on taking Big Stompy Robots to the Fools Daily Butterfly House at BonesCon in Birmingham next year. Here are a few extra details about the event, so you can plan it into your wargaming diaries.
I incorrectly referred to BonesCon as a successor to SmogCon - apparently they have a few of the same people running it, but it's a different convention.  What can I say - it was early and I hadn't had enough coffee.

What is BonesCon?

BonesCon is being held at the Hilton Metropole in Birmingham from February 16th-18th 2018.  Mike Marshall, who many of you know from the Fools Daily podcast, is planning on running the Butterfly House - an area dedicated to the smaller independent miniatures games (where Big Stompy Robots comes in). 
I'm hoping to have a set of rough print-and-play rules by then, so if you're signed up to the Big Stompy Robots Newsletter, you'll be able to take a look before you come and play.
"BonesCon is a three day American style wargaming convention.The show brings together gamers from across the spectrum of miniatures based games, with a range of events across the weekend.
Featuring competitive and causal play spaces, demo space, vendor hall, painting, board games and RPGs, the show should meet the needs and interests of all attendees."
I understand tickets will be available in the next few weeks, so keep an eye on the official website and social media accounts for more details.
