We had an incredibly successful showing at CincyCon this year.
 
Many new people were introduced to the game and the minis for the first time. Many older gamers were happy to see the classics returning. We did two full days of multiple 1-on-1 demo games, and a demolition-derby type game all day Sunday.
 
 
 
It was a wonderful experience. We completely sold out of the Game Starter Sets and Rule Books that we brought to the Con.
 
 
 
We gave out a ton of flyers for the project, and made some solid connections with other vendors (more on that in the future).
 
We met a very talented Mr. Stuart Thaman, author of the Goblin Wars series. It looks like he will be doing a couple of short stories for us.  Check out his website:  www.stuartthamanbooks.com
 
 
 
Thanks to all the friends, old and new, who played the game, stopped by to talk, and admire great minis.

Special Thanks to the Demo Team people who showed up to put it all on: Norm Dean, Rob Dean, Mark Graham, Jim Dupps, Ross Rodman, James Shaw, Rich Smethurst, and Sarah Fathbruckner. Without all of you, we couldnt have put on so many games. There were a few of our number who wanted to attend, but life got in the way...sorry guys, you missed a great event. We'll save space for you next time.
 
 
 
 
There may have been other great conventions this last weekend, but I cant think of any better place to have been playing Chaos Wars, than at CincyCon.
 
We'll be back in 2017.

Massive Dragons clashed in the skies, while formations of Dwarves, Beastmen, Elves, Orcs, Goblins, and Lizardmen engaged in battle below. 

The Giant Hydra destroyed an entire unit of Armored Centaurs, then lost its nerve due to the single wound it suffered, and turned to leave the field of battle.  The Necromancer cast a Rally spell, and turned the beast around, sending it heads-first into the gunfire of Dwarf Arquebusers, the Steam Cannon, and Mechanical Giant.  

A powerful Red Dragon flew too close to the Orc battleline, and was attacked by two Wyverns.  One Wyvern engaged the Dragon in the front, while the other attacked its flank, eventually killing the massive Dragon.

 

The Jabberwock loped across the battlefield, while dodging the blasts fired by the Mechanical Giant’s arm-mounted cannon, until it swooped down on the Giant and the two tore at one another until both were destroyed.

There were many unexpected and interesting encounters on the tabletop.

10 different armies marched across the battlefield..
