40K Community: Las Vegas Open Art!

A big thanks to Goatboy for making this awesome piece of art for us!

The Las Vegas Open has the potential to be a MASSIVE event. It has all of the qualities a great event needs. Plus, by gearing it to be a social event as opposed to a more niche event, we can really grow this into something special.

We’ve already got the commitment of Goatboy, Darkwynn, 6th Street Alan (Winner of WargamesCon and the ETC Singles) to come, and Carl from the Independent Characters was super excited!

I have a felling that this could become fantastic if done well, and we’ve piled up a ton of experience running all of the events we have. I feel that we are in a position to really make this something special and appeal to a larger gaming audience.

We’re looking at late January or early February. What works best for all of you reading this?

But thanks again to Goatboy! That image is hilarious and I think it will make a great promotional piece as well as a great T-Shirt!

And P.S. We may try and make this happen for 2013, not 2014!

    Oh, how you tease me. Man, I hope it pans out that I could make it to this. In regards as to when to have it, when is the airfare to Vegas at it’s absolute cheapest? 🙂

      Also, shouldn’t it read 2013?

        We’re debating right now as to which year is more viable. We have a back up piece with 2013 on it!

      Off season is Jan-Feb

        Sounds perfect. If I were to attempt to make this all work, the weekend of Feb 15 would be the most viable. And with Monday being a holiday, folks could stay an extra day to enjoy the sights 🙂

    February as to avoid super bowl in Vegas prices

      Good point. And it gives some cool down time from Christmas as well.

    The Texas contingent from San Antonio will definitely make a Vegas trip!!!

    Drinks from a wall, rolling 2D6 on a special table (craps) and overaged and under pretty waitresses. Love it!!

      You said it! We’d love to have you all!

    Oops I forgot to mention that the logo looks awesome.

    Goat Boy did our logo too which will be on the t-shirts we wear tomorrow at Comikaze.

      Looking forward to seeing them!

    January would be awesome.

    • Reecius September 14, 2012 9:47 am #

      We’re thinking late Jan, early Feb.

    This should be epic!
    If it’s on the 2nd weekend of either month I should be free to go.

    • Reecius September 14, 2012 9:47 am #

      We’ll do our best to accommodate everyone!

    I’m going to BAO as it is in driving distance, but I’m trying to convince my wife she really wants to see Vegas too. Plus I still have to make it down to get in a game against you Reece! (or if you want to make the trip up the home cooked dinner and drinks invite is still very much on the table)

    I would hate to see something like this flop.

    Take your time with it and make it become something truly epic because I think it could be Great!

    I recommend Feb over Jan and I think 2014 is a realistic time to have this thing launched.

    Thats a lot of time to get the word out and get people committed.

    Either way I am totally heading West for this one!

    Awesome, flyer Goatboy never lets me down.

    This sounds like an amazing event at a great location. Totally looking forward to it. Goatboy did a great job on the art too!

      It is going to be epic! Can’t wait for it and yes, he sure did.
