Welcome to GenCon
2003 in Indianapolis, Indiana.
If you want pictures of what the
convention center looks like from
the outside, you can find those on
other sites. Here I have
pictures form the miniatures and
board gaming areas along with the
dealers room. Enjoy!
Before I could get into the Dealer's
Room at 10AM, I spent some time in
the gaming halls. Here
is a Lego Pirates battle
being fought on the floor.
The Red Shirts
are known to run lots of fun
games which are very visual.
Here is one that takes place in
the dealers room of a
convention. The booths are
great with lots of work on making
them look like the real
thing. The GM was even in
the center of the table, in a
had some of their new spaceship
miniatures available for the Battletech
universe. The Avalon (left)
was first released at the con and is
an interesting design.
And the rest
of the new releases from IronWind
Metals of interest to SCN,
the Light Fighters based in
3's and the Leopard class
Here is something interesting to the
SCN readers, a new game called Armada:
Assault Fleet from Happy
Nebula Games. It is a 3D
game using 8 facings. I'm
working on getting more info on the
game and SCN will have more info
when I do.
WOW, look at that, a booth
babe. She was spinning this
wheel for some reason for some game
I can't remember.
Before the dealers room opened, I
had noticed this attractive young
lady in normal cloths waiting and
looking a bit lost. She had
this garment bag with her so
something was up. Just
before the dealers room opened, I
saw her with an exhibitor getting
into the dealers room and then later
ran across her here, with flaming
products were being sold by another
company and they had a few samples
at their booth, including this
Orbital Dock. I really need to
get mine put together.
Back in the
Miniatures Hall, here is a nice
American Civil War battle being
released a new smaller version of
the game, but these people were
playing a very large verson.
Over at the Attack
Vector table, they had a
couple very large versions of the
ships modeled with LEGOs.
I had offered
make SCN readers 'immortal' if
they asked so here they are.
On the left in Andrew Durya from
Lansing, Michigan while playing in
an AV demo. On
the right is Anthony Ruso, also
from Lansing while he was playing
in a Dirtside game.
This is a shot of
one of the Full Thrust Demo games
that I ran on Thursday.
The convention center in Indy is
connected to the Hoosier Dome
where the Colts play. I
couldn't get in but I could get a
Mike Miserendino ran a BOLO based Dirtside
II game. Here are a
few shots of that game and the good
BOLOs went after the bad aliens in
control of the city.
