Not promising anything yet, but just in case can you get some info for me?


Location of the Krumpin' zone - sorted

Some hotel in the area with a bed and a bar (an' jak-uzi wiv hot and cold running chocolate coated dancing grotz) - its like a rash of motels, but which is any good?

Name of the local model shop (s) - http://www.gamersrea...tore1/index.php

eddie the troll on our side of the pond? Really?!? That'd be awesome! The game shop is The Gamers' Realm which is in West Windsor, NJ. I'd offer you a bed at my place (no bar, but there're enough nearby ;) ), but there's a pretty good chance my place will be full of my kids that weekend. I will ask around some of the regulars what hotels they've used in the past and let you know. I would also suggest flying into Newark instead of JFK if that's an option... trust me, it's an easier drive to our neck of the woods. And if you're not planning to rent a car I'll fetch you from Newark (I won't make that offer for JFK!) Parcel delivery... dunno, I'd have to check.

If this event takes place in July I should be able to go, so when you find out that information about local areas to stay let me know as well because to my surprise the Mrs. wants to go. If this is in June I won't be able to make it as I will be teaching school until the July 1.

Interesting, the mere mention of possible attendees from other areas induces uncontrolled movements of the bladder in some forum members. Must remember to wear my wellington boots and plastic poncho if I make it; who knows what the presence of an actual foreigner would have on the internal organs of other attendees. Seems airfreight is cheaper by volume than weight, how many figures can you get in a box 17" x 17" x 34" and weighing less than 25lbs.

So is this thing open to any Waaagh!er with a painted army? Because if that's the case (and I am free whenever this thing takes place) I'm there. New Jersey is practically a suburb of NYC, just a leap across the river for me.

The date will be July, looking at the weekend following the 4th. Which is independance day for the gits in the USA. I've got some limited crash space available, but will probrobly be full with Noser, MTD, and Gragdush taking up all my spare sleeping room. Maybe room for one more git. There is a Ramada inn and an econo lodge nearby which are nice places. Both in Hightstown NJ 08520 right off of the turnpike on Route 33. There are plenty of dives to but I'll steer you guys away from them. Any motel/hotel on Route 130 is a dive except for the Hilton in Hamilton NJ 08690. It is about 20 minutes from the game store. I've got the codex about finished for the event. I added the squats army list as a salute to the skumgrods. Once Mad Grot gets a chance to edit it, we will throw it up for download. We will be using apocalypse rules for the game. The codex of da ORKPOKALYPSE will be da offical rules supplement for the game. No point limit, no limit on superheavies, all models must be painted. [Three colors minimum.] Event fee is $20.00 US dollars per person, there will be free pizza, drinks, and prizes. The only rule we have is that everyone have fun. I say this at every mega battle...Bring whatever you want, but bring what you can logically play/move around for the day. I keep my force under 10k in points and use only one superheavy. My great gargant has so many weapons and special rules it takes a majority of my time trying to run it proppa, the extra troops I bring along are mostly used as a meat shield to surround the gargant so it can't get swamped in close combat by any dedicated assault troops. I tend to use the rest of my stuff as reinforcements to spread around the battle where needed. I'll have my loaner Ork army available, it is 2k in points and has a little bit of every thing in it.

I know there is some decent hotels and such in the Langhorne, Pa area. Right off Rt1 and I-95, though it is about 30 mintes from The Gamers Realm.
Local Link

There is also a swanky Marriott in a nice corner of Trenton, which in turn isn't far from the store. Anuva Link

And there is a Holiday Inn Express in ye olde Morrisville, but I've never stayed at it. You can see it from my apartment

Who knows what I'm doing for breakfast let alone July. :/ ;)

If you're doing it 10-11 July 2010, that's the weekend of Historicon, the biggest miniatures gaming convention on the east coast. Which has a massive dealer room and flea market, and is where I get the majority of my miniatures, since there's always people there switching/selling armies, and you can get great deals. So as much as i'd like to make it, if it's that weekend, I'll have to bow out. :crybaby Can't afford to miss the biggest toy store of the year.

As the event gets closer and I figure out if I can make it, I would be willing to split a room with people. Heck, if DC people needed a ride I could carpool too. Just gotta figure out if I can make it next july, that is way far in advance for how I plan. :D
