Battle for the Cowl Adepticon 2016 Player Handbook

We've been holding off the release of this document while waiting for the recent official FAQ release to ensure we'd crossed our t's and dotted our i's. Everything looks good, so without further ado, here is the Player's Handbook for the inaugural run of Battle for the Cowl at Adepticon 2016.

Wisconsin Winter War II at Tundra Con

On Saturday, January 9th the Battle Badgers will be heading up to the American Legion Hall on College Ave in Appleton to host the second Wisconsin Winter War with our friends from the Fox River Valley Gaming Club. We had an absolute blast with this event last year! We ended up with about 14 players, and 3 wonderful rounds of Flames of War.

This year we're hoping to do much of the same. Though there are a few changes. First, we'll be playing Late War this go round, and our points total will be next year's 1420 for Late War. We're confident this will shake up a bunch of lists. More details will be coming shortly, but we're hosting a sign-up sheet now. There will be no additional cost, beyond your convention admission, to play in the Wisconsin Winter War.

Finally, even if you can't commit the time to play in our tourney, if you're in the area and have a love for war games, we suggest you take an hour or two to pop in and check out all of the great toys at Tundra Con.

Batman Miniatures Game at Adepticon 2016

In a branching out for the Battle Badgers, we're looking to run an event for the Batman Miniatures Game (BMG) at Adepticon 2016.

Ken Horton is leading the effort, and, given his love for all things Batman, he's the organizer we deserve. We're in discussion with Knight Models and Adepticon regarding details, and we'll be posting updates here.

New Heights at Adepticon

It seems we managed to impress a few folks, or at the very least not upset anyone too horribly, with our display and demo efforts at Adepticon last year. I'm basing this assumption on the fact that the folks at Battlefront asked us out again this past weekend for another go at Ranger Demos and a Flames of War display at Adepticon 2015.

The Cheesehead Championship

It's been decided that the Cheesehead Championship will be coming to Kenosha, WI to our very own Rockheads Comics and Games this year. This 3 round, 1 day tournament will be taking place on Saturday May 9th. We've not solidified a cost, start time, or headcount as of yet, but we're hoping the first two will be similar to years past, and the headcount will be significantly more.
The Signup Form is just below. At this point signing up is an indication of your interest, it does not guarantee you a spot. However, when things are shored up and we're ready to roll, people who have signed up here will be given precedence. So if you're even considering making it out for this one be sure to sign up!

Adepticon Primer Tourney at Adventure Games (RESULTS)

After we had so much fun running the Wisconsin Winter War at Tundracon for our friends at Adventure Games in Oshkosh, we couldn't help but agree to a second helping of Flames of War when Teddy and Char asked us to help out again, but this time at their new location ( 927 Oregon St. Oshkosh Wisconsin).

First off, if you're in the area and have never been to Adventure Games, or haven't been since they've moved, you're missing out. What a fantastic venue! Teddy and Char were able to comfortably host all 16 of us on 8 solid tables. The truly wonderful part? We weren't in anyone else's way either, the store was full of people playing all sorts of different games, or building models. This isn't to say we were pushed to the darkened back of the store and out of the way. No, far from it in fact, we were right up front in a well lit and comfortable spot. This place is really just that sort of big and very well laid out. We're sort of spoiled when it comes to Friendly Local Game Stores here in our home of Kenosha, but to be entirely honest, I'm sort of jealous of what you Oshkosh lot have going on here.

Wisconsin Winter War at TundraCon results

It seems I've been rather lax in my blogging as of late. It's been two weeks since we ran the Wisconsin Winter War at Tundra Con with our friends from Adventure Games in Oshkosh, and I've still not managed to post a thing. Shame on me! Well, I suppose it's better late than never, so here goes.
