Warlord Games Con
Reed Conference Center

26 – 28 May 2017
Warlord Games Con (WGC) is in its FOURTH year and is a showcase for all of the tabletop miniature wargames that come out of Warlord Games in Nottingham England, from Bolt Action to Hail Caesar and even the new games Test of Honour and a Timey, Whimy, Wibbly, Wobbly one! All the miniatures are provided along with terrain and we have table bosses that will be happy to introduce you to any of our games so you can try as many as you have time for.
The game tables will have varying levels of play, from beginner to advanced, for Hail Caesar, Black Powder, Bolt Action, and Beyond the Gates of Antares. Additionally there will be tables for Test of Honour, Terminator: Genisys, Project Z and Konflikt ’47 and several others we are just waiting for final confirmation on those. No previous knowledge of the rules is needed. Just jump in and start playing. We have also expanded our playing field to include all types of gaming. WE are very excited to be able to present to you the FULL GLORY OF ROME! MIKE GOMEZ is bringing his 28mm FULL SIZE CIRCUS MAXIMUS Chariot racing game, Walker and crew from ARENA REX will be here for the Gladiatorial Combat angle and of course we will have Hail Caesar tables for you to really immerse yourself into the grand spectacle of the Mighty Empire. You really cannot miss this! We will also have an area for Board Games, two additional tournaments, and an open gaming area. We are really filling up the Reed Center, it is a must see and attend event!
If you have a painted army and you would like to display your skills as a tabletop general why not sign up for one of our tournaments! We are running the following tests of your leadership abilities: Bolt Action, Beyond the Gates of Antares and Test of Honour. We have opened up our gaming area this year to include more games and players. We have added a Saga and Team Yankee tournament to our event. We are also having a painting contest. Prizes will be awarded for the tournaments and for the painting contest.
We are less than ONE month away from WGC in OKC! Things are rapidly falling into place with vendors and contributors adding to the ever bulging swag bag to be given to the first 100 attendees. Warlord Games, GAMES AND GEARS, Geek Nation, Gaddis Gaming, Bombshell Miniatures, Litko Gaming Accessories and Secret Weapon are just a few of the current swag bag/prize supporters/sponsors and more coming on board every day. For vendors we have Whistle Stop (terrain), Kernals and Kandies, Top Deck Games of Tulsa, Portsmouth Miniatures, Clawson Games, ACW representing Cigar Box Battle Mats, Winged Hussar Publishing and as mentioned Arena REX!!
Registration for WGC opens at 1:30 p.m. but our first big event kicks at off 5 p.m. on Friday, 26 May at the 45th Infantry Division Museum.
The museum will be open to WGC attendees only, allowing them to view weapons, uniforms, vehicles and other unit memorabilia as well as see what the 45th has accomplished while in service to our nation over the past century. The museum will have representatives on hand to answer any questions about the 45th that attendees might have.
After the museum tour we will all head over the Reed Center in Mid West City where registration will open at 7 p.m. so attendees can check in. The first round of the tournaments will begin at 7:30 p.m. and at 8 p.m. the beginner demo tables will start running, all to be concluded by 10 p.m.
The hall reopens at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, 27 May, with round two of the Bolt Action tournament starts at 8 a.m. and all the demo tables will be ready to go. The vendor hall opens at 9 a.m. and round two of the Beyond the Gates of Antares tournament starts as well. Round three of the Bolt Action tournament will start at 10:15 a.m. while round three of the Beyond the Gates of Antares tournament will start at 1 p.m. Both tournaments and awards presentation will be completed after lunch, which allows plenty of time for the tournament players to be able to try any of the demo tables they would like. The hall will stay open until 11:30 p.m. so everyone will get plenty of gaming time. We are back on Sunday the 28th of May at 8:30 a.m. bright and early with round one of the Test of Honour tournament. The hall will remain open, running more demos until 3 pm.
