From the announcement:
It’s Friday and you know what that means! It’s time for another update about the exciting things we’ll be having at the CMON Expo.
This week we’ve got a new Guest announcement, a new Tourney, and a new Hobby event to talk about.
First up, we’re proud to have Teri Litorco joining us as a guest at this year’s event.
Tori is a contributor to the Geek & Sundry Network, Teri describes herself as the Rachel Ray of miniature gaming. Since she debuted on YouTube, her goal has been simple: to show that playing games and painting miniatures isn’t hard or scary. While her focus has been on accessibility for casual and non-hobbyists, she’s been painting and gaming for over 13 years, and in that time also organized miniature wargaming tournaments as well as spends some time as the uncredited producer of the Jaded Gamercast, a miniature wargaming podcast. Her ultimate goal is to show the world that the hobby can be for everyone, no matter their age, gender, or ability.
Next up there’s a new Rivet Wars Tournament, called The Big Push.
The Big Push will challenge players in an escalating-engagement tournament. Players start out by pairing off and splitting a Rivet Wars: Eastern Front starter box between them, on player taking all the Allies and another taking all the Blight. Then, each round, starting with the first, a new set of Kickstarter exclusive miniatures will be added to the player’s possible models to use during their games. The action will be fast and furious at this event, which will be held on Saturday.
Last, but not least, is a fan favorite for the Expo, the Paint & Take.
Our Paint & Take has something for everyone! New to the hobby? We provide a basic assortment of paint, brushes, and materials, plus a free ready-to-paint mini to get you started. Staff painters will be on hand to answer questions and share tips. An old hand with the brush? Our open tables, with lamps available, are the perfect spot to hang out with friends and work on your next masterpiece—or finish up a contest entry!
This year, we are proud to have the Paint & Take event sponsored by Reaper Miniatures.
