Bay Area Open Preparation has Begun!

Check out this article from Mack Martin, game designer and co-author of Dust Tactics over at Dice Like Thunder!

He’s getting ready to bring the heat this year!

Also, we’ve got some friends flying in from other parts of the country. Dr.Insanotron and his crew from up north are coming down and preparing their Tau Forgeowrld goodies just for the occasion!

This year will be our biggest yet, and we’re very excited to grow the event! We can’t wait to host everyone again this year for the event that started all of this for us. There wouldn’t be a Frontline Gaming is their hadn’t been a BAO, so we’re gong all out this year to make it a blast!

How are you guys preparing for the BAO?

    For those wanting to play in a more laid back setting at the BAO; I am in full planning mode for the two day narrative event extravaganza! The lore will start flowing soon, followed shortly after by forces involved and scenarios.

      I may have to pay some one to watch my vendor table this year. Your game looked like a bunch of fun from where I sat last year. Can’t wait!

    Dangit Jim….You’re directly putting my desire to play in a huge narrative event in conflict with my desire to dabble with the big boys at a major tourney event.

      Haha, then my plan is working!

    Hope to see Flames of War there again this year!

    Do you guys already have a PG lined up to run the Warmachine/Hordes events?

    • Reecius September 10, 2012 3:23 pm #

      We do, Tyson has worked with us for the past 2 years, but I am sure he would love having some help.

    Cool, if he does want a hand you can forward him my information or have me contact him. It seems like Tyson has it covered though.

    This time, I am going to make it work. I am going!

    There’s nothing quite like playing against some of the best players here in the west coast.

      The narrative event was a big Apoc game last year.

    Have you guys decided on which Forge World supplements, and of those which entries, will be allowed for regular play at the BAO in 2013?

    • Reecius September 13, 2012 9:46 am #

      Yes, any non-super heavy or gargantuan creature may be used.

        Thanks for that Reece.

    I’m preparing for the narrative event in 2013…I’ve supplemented estrogen and Pediasure into my daily regiment. I’ve also considered buying a new brassier and having my nails painted….

    • Reecius September 13, 2012 9:28 am #

      Not so sure if the kind of narrative you’e forging their is going to be the kind of narrative they’re looking for! haha

    So you are painting your army in drag?
