What we’re doing and where to find us when we take the show on the road.

August 2015 – the missing month

Morning all,

Again, it has been some time since any of us at 6SS posted to the blog.  After GenCon, all 3 of us have had different medical challenges that came us and we are dealing with.  This left little focus on the website and we have basically been just treading water filling orders and trying to find the ability to enjoy our down time.

Things aren’t much better yet but I will do my best to keep content coming as we prepare for the fall convention season.

KEGSCON is our first convention of the fall.  Put on by the Kent-Essex Gaming club, this single day event is happening on September 26th.  There are 3 gaming slots from 9am-1pm, 2pm-6pm and 7pm-11pm.  We will be there in the dealer hall.  You can find out more information by visiting their website KEGSCON.  I hope to see many of you in Chatham!

Council of Fires is the next convention happening on October 3rd.  This convention is located in Cambridge Ontario and is also a single day event.  The games run on a track system which will allow you to get in at least 2 games during the day.  We will be in the vendor hall and there is also a “bring and buy” event to offload some of your unloved models.  You can find more information by visiting their website Council of Fires.

Fall In is the 3rd of the Historical Miniature Gaming Society’s conventions for the year.  Running Nov 6-8 in Lancaster PA, this convention has been a staple of my convention schedule for many years.  I have learned so much about games not played around where I live and found dozens of miniature companies that I didn’t know existed.  I’ve made a lot of great friends and look forward to seeing the new wares from the likes of Brigade Games, Miniature Building Authority and Old Glory.  Not a historical gamer?  No worries.  Fall In has a number of fantasy/sci-fi and alternate history games to keep you going for the whole weekend.  One I would suggest is Gnome Wars run by Jim Stanton.  It mashes up historical armies and translates them into Gnomes.  It is twisted fun with a solid set of rules.  You can find out more about this convention on their website Fall In.

That is about it for now.  I know I still owe you my article on pigment and to share our new projects for the fall.  Let’s hope “soon” means soon this time.

Peace out, eh?

Engage Engines! Full speed ahead!

Hey Everyone! Brad here. Just wanted to post a quick update on how our big space table is coming along for Reapercon. We’re going to be running an epic battle between two cruisers that we’ve dubbed Hostile Takeover. The basic premise of the game is that two corporations are sending boarding parties in an attempt to commandeer the enemies vessel. Continue reading Engage Engines! Full speed ahead!

The stone bridge is FINALLY done!!!!

Hi all,

Minicannuck here.  It has been a hectic couple of weeks up here in Canada.  With the average temperature being around -20, I was not able to make use of the studio I created in my garage.  The poor space heaters just couldn’t keep up.  I think I will have to invest in a wood burning stove if we continue to get weather like this.  In the mean time, I had to find space in the house where I could.

The good news is that I got the first stone bridge done!  Continue reading The stone bridge is FINALLY done!!!!
