These aren't the updates you're looking for...

Just a quick note. Due to a minor domestic emergency (nothing major), I may not be able to get the events and achievement list up tonight. I'll more than likely be away from the computer most of the day, but I should be able to have it listed by tomorrow night or Thursday morning at the latest. Feel free to keep sending ideas ( and I'll update ASAP.

...carry on.

Looking for help-photographer

Warmachine Weekend is looking for someone (or a team of someones) who can take and upload pics to this blog during the weekend. That person would need a digital camera (one that can take good macro pics) and the knowledge of how to use it.

Responsibilities would include taking pics of cool minis, feature match reports, and general event coverage.

There will be perks for these special people so email me if this sounds like something you may want to do (

WMWeekend '09 Achievements!?!

In years past we have had a few different way to give away prizes at Warmachine Weekend. We have had a big raffle, just gave them out like door prizes, given them to winners, etc. This year we are doing something a little different. After reading the rules for the Monsterpocalypse "All You Can Eat" event I thought about how fun it sounded. For those who don't know, you get achievements and then get prizes based on how many achievements get for playing through the course of the day. I also thought about how everyone seems to like the achievement system in World of Warcraft, X-Box Live, and all the rest. So...

This year the "door prizes" will be given out (sort of) based on the number of achievements you get. To be specific, we are going to give raffle tickets based on how many you can get over the course of the weekend. More than likely it will be a system where you will get a ticket for 1, another one at 5, another at 10, and so on. The specific details will be worked out later.

Also to hand out the prizes, we will do the drawing after the events on Sunday morning. This means we will more than likely move a short event to the Sunday morning slot and after do the prizes and crown the Weekend champ. More on scheduling to come...

So spread the word, what I need from everyone for the next couple of weeks is the following:

Send me a list of achievements you think should be on the final list. These can range from normal game condition awards (Win 3 Mosh Pit scenarios) to crazy things (Get off my lawn-Kill an opposing caster in melee with one of the "old' minis like Sevy, Doomshaper, etc.). Send me you ideas at: and in a couple of weeks you will see the final list.

Now the fun part. Each achievement will get you a corresponding button to go with it. So by the end of the weekend, some people may have their army transports or t-shirts full of them.

Get some buttons/achievements before October 16th! I will be at some events over the summer where you can pick up a promotional WMWeekend button that corresponds for the event. Bring the button with you to the weekend in October and POW! instant achievement...all for just hunting me out at the event. I will be handing the first ones out at GenCon, so make sure to hunt me down. Also, former WMWeekend champs will get a special button to show off to everyone, I will hopefully have those ready by GenCon as well.

So you have your assignments...get to work!

Also, we are still planning on doing the "win an army" prize to a random person that finishes each event.

Off to DIecon and Privateer Weekend!!!

I'm off to hit Diecon and take some time off. The "Jailbreak" will be playing in Hardcore (I'll try and post pics when I get back) and hopefully I'll have a weekend full for fun games. Find me there and I'll give up some details on WMWeekend.

We have a date! Warmachine Weekend will be part of G.A.M.E. this year. What is G.A.M.E.? For starts its the Gaming Arts Media Expo, or for most all of us its a new convention for the Springfield area that covers everything from miniature games, board games, card games, anime, and all other of the "geeky" arts.

I'll post some new information about game soon. This will include how we will handle registration. Rest easy, being part of Warmachine Weekend, you will not be asked to pay to take part in two conventions. But like I said, more info coming soon...find me at Diecon this weekend and I'll give you the skinny.
