Battle Badger'ing at TMX!

Tabletop Minions Expo (TMX) is a tabletop wargaming expo and convention in Oshkosh, WI coming up June 3-4, 2017. The focus of TMX is demonstrations, larger multiplayer experiences, and narrative play. TMX is in its first year this year, and is run by Uncle Atom from the Tabletop Minions YouTube channel, along with many other volunteers. There'll be some painting seminars, a live stream from the show, vendors, and lots of games to play!

I can't begin to tell you how excited I was when Uncle Atom reached out to the Battle Badgers and asked for a little help running some Flames of War events at his TMX show. We met Uncle Atom back in 2014 at our weekend long 70th Anniversary D-Day Event. If you've never seen the great work going on at the Tabletop Minions YouTube channel, I'd suggest you take a second and familiarize yourself. This man's voice is like silk, wrapped in velvet, dipped in peanut butter (creamy, not crunchy), and he's talking about miniatures!

Come scale the cliffs with the Battle Badgers

So what are we going to be doing at TMX? Well, we'll be running V4 demos with the El Alamein set, we'll be playing Tanks, and we'll have our Pointe Du Hoc board out there for some multiplayer scenario play. We may even be handing out goodies from our friends at Battlefront.

If you're looking to learn to play the game, already know and would like to help grow the Flames of War community in Oshkosh, or want to try your hand on the cliffs of Normandy, come and check us out!

Our Pointe du Hoc scenario plays 3, not including the Game Master/Defender. Bring a couple of mates, or make some new friends at the show.

TMX will be held at the Gruenhagen Conference Center at UW Oshkosh, in Oshkosh Wisconsin. A Saturday badge will cost you $8, a Sunday badge will run $5, a weekend badge will run $12. Be the first person to show up at the show on Saturday after commenting on this blog post to tell us that you're going to TMX, and the Battle Badgers will buy your badge.


  1. far out what a great looking board. All the best for the conference

    1. Thanks Chris. We're big fans of this specific scenario, it's a great game for salty FoW Vets, and new guys who've never played before.

  2. Where are the Battle Badgers HQ'ed? I'm just to the east of Madison.

    1. We're in the Kenosha/Racine area. Are you looking for a game?

    1. Well then, lets see what we can do. You're in Madison, we're in Kenosha. Willing to get together in Milwaukee or something similar? I hear the guys at Battle Brothers play FoW, and I've been looking to check them out.
