HobbyTown Update

Michael C (Aristo):
"Spoke to a new employee at Hobbytown on Saturday afternoon. He said his job is to handle all the people interested in Games Workshop stuff. He himself is big into 40k. He seemed supportive of idea to stay open til 9 pm, also to get group terrain and more standing tables for people to use as well as obtain more merchandise to sell. "

As most of you know by now, we no longer has access to HobbyTown after 8pm. What this means is that

1. All current gaming nights (Thursdays) will have to be privately hosted. As we previously decided, gaming host decides the game and scenario being played.

2. As long as this works, we should be alright. But one of the reason we went with HobbyTown is to be visible, thus able to recruit new players into our group. If we want to do so, we will have to play on a weekend afternoon. Maybe once a month?

3. We might also want to revisit the idea of dues if this can help us maintain a desireable gaming venue

WotR Shopping Consideration

A thought on buying models for WotR. The current rules give 10 factions to play, and allows taking any combination of formations within each factions. But I suspect that there will be more detailed books for each factions as they did with SBG-LotR. If so, these books may place additional restrictions on what combinations are allowable. For instance, you may not be able to mix Gondor with Arnor for instance, or Corsairs with Khand. Please keep this in mind as you formulate your army roster and decide what to buy next. It may be better to be a theme purist with your army composition, at least for a while (to say 1000 points).
