-Paint Your Toys: Spud wants to encourage players to get their stuff painted, so he’s offering a special prize raffle at every event in 2019. Tickets for the raffle can be earned in a few ways:

1) If your armies are fully painted, you get 3 tickets.
2) You receive one additional ticket (up to a max of 3) for each model you’re playing at the event that was painted in the last two months (purely on the honour system 😛 ).
3) Finally, each player will receive one special ticket on which they can write the name of the person whose models they like best (by whatever subjective artistic criteria each person chooses to apply!).

At the end of the day, one name will be drawn, and that player will be able to pick from one of three army starter boxes!

Be sure to register on the ITS site at this link:

All players are responsible for bringing their own models, dice, tokens, measuring devices, classified decks, and printed army lists.

I look forward to seeing everyone out on October 20th! 🙂

Painting Table SEP

We always feel that the best way to paint is in a group.  Newer painters can ask questions and learn, good painters get to show off a little, you can bounce ideas off each other, and just enjoy the company of those that share this wonderful hobby with you.  In order to allow everyone the opportunity to enjoy group painting, BKG organizes our ‘Painting Table’ events each month!

When: Sunday, September 22, 12:00pm – 4:00pm

Entry Fee: None, just bring your stuff and paint with us!

Details: Bring any paints you’ll need, if you don’t have them or can’t bring them we will have some available too.  Bring whatever painting project you have on the go, sit down, and get painting!  We will supply some stations, water cups, paper towel, pallets etc.

New Painters & Kids: Want to learn how to paint, or something new?  Perfect!  We will have staff sitting at the table too, and they’ll be more than happy to teach you what they know.  Other painters will be sure to pipe in with their own advice.  So, while this isn’t an organized seminar event, it will be a great spot to learn, and in some ways even better because you’ll learn tailored to the project you are working on.  We’ll even give you a starting miniature if you’ve never painted before!

The top winner of the Everchosen category in each participating store can go on to compete in the global competition for a chance to win the ultimate prize – the Slayer of Kings. This Store Champion will receive instructions on how to submit their entry from there.
