Is anyone else here a gaming nerd :3?/ going to gencon?

Post by DeTh » Mon Jun 20, 2011 11:57 pm

What i mean is like Table top or Card games. Been trying to find some people to chat it up with lol.
i actively play Warmachine but i do also have warhammer fantasy/40k as well as magic the gathering.
I am also willing to try and new games that come out or that people have demos of.

Anyone else a nerdy gamer out there and if so will you be attending Gencon :D?

<--- this guy

Warhammer Fantasy Battle (The Empire)
Not to big into 40k but i have a few space marines

And occasionally we attempt to get down to some DnD when the time allows..

Lately i have been enjoying table top gaming ten fold compared to desktop as it seems now that we are of age the social element of getting together with the guys and drinking a few beers and rolling some polyhedral dice is pretty epic..

Yeah, warhammer fantasy/40k. Though I am trying to sell most of my collection (mainly fantasy... about 20-25k points).

I went once when it was in Indianapolis. Meh. It was much better when it was here in Milwaukee.

High elves, tomb kings, dwarves, daemons (slaanesh and tzeentch). Possibly wood elves as well, undecided.

I figure on selling them for around 50% off retail. I haven't followed what they go for, but I figure that is about a fair price (question: is it a fair price?)

really depends..

on what you have. Are they old and rare?

Are they painted?

What quality they are in?

where your selling them at.


etc..

I've got some old 40k stuff knocking around including some really old 1st edition Imperial Guard (even got a couple of guard landspeeders - that's how old they are!)

Not done anything with it since my uni days...

Played D&D back in the day with Hans and friends. Those were some awesome times! Trying to get something like that going again. I doubt it has lost its appeal just because I am an old fart.

For those that are interested i just got involved in a couple of Skirmish games that i really enjoy and one world war 2 table top game.

MERCS (a highly tactics based 5 on 5 game)- http://www.mercsminis.com/
Infinity (similar to Necromunda but also a small man skirmish game)- http://www.infinitythegame.com/infinity/en/
Flames Of War (very fun but very $$$)- http://www.flamesofwar.com/
