Road to Adepticon 2017 : Part 2

Hello everyone!  This week I wanted to give you a short update on my Adepticon 2017 Preperation.

Adepticon 2017 is now less than one month away and I am feeling the hobby crunch in full force.  This is not a new feeling, as I have experienced it before, although it feels just as stressful and fun as it always has in the past.  Perfecting my models, my list, and stashing aside those few extra hobby bucks for an impulse buy constantly occupies my mind.

As you may have seen in my previous posts, I plan on taking a Stormcast Eternals force.  You will be happy to know that I finished painting the last of my Warrior Brotherhood last Friday night, just in time to see my original plan change the next day when I picked up my copy of the new Stormcast Eternals Battletome.

Building a Community : Part 2

Welcome to Part 2 of my Building a Community Series.  If you missed Part 1 please check it out here.  I apologize for the delay in getting this article posted.

In this installment, I want to talk about poisonous players and the current challenges with this type of player that I am currently facing.  I will not be calling out anyone by name, as that is not the direction I want to take this article.  My wish is to show you my personal dilemma that I have encountered while trying to grow my local scene.  Hopefully, my experiences can help others to better prepare for these obstacles.

Building a Community : Part 1

Hello everyone!  I wanted to start a sub-series focused on building a community around Miniature War Gaming (particularly Age of Sigmar) by sharing my experiences.  My hope is to speak with other community members during this series, and share ideas to use with local gaming groups.  Part one of this series will focus on developing your local scene.  I will explore connecting a personal gaming group to a larger scene in future articles.

The Realm Gate Blog One Year Anniversary

Last week was the anniversary of my blogging career, and I wanted to take a moment to look back on this previous year.
