- The club's big Tentcon event is taking place on October 20, and a huge Age of Sigmar narrative event is planned at The Games Tavern in Chantilly on November 10. That event will also feature a KidsHammer mini-event.

- On top of all that, regular Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40,000 gaming continues as normal.
Gaming opportunities abound this fall:
I just realized that it's been a year since the last update. It's not because nothing is going on. Quite the opposite!
The club has been booming. We have WhatsApp chats going for 40k, Age of Sigmar, Skirmish Games, Painting, Sales & Swaps, a book club, and Kidshammer planning. Recently we added chats for Star Wars, RPGs, and Middle Earth. With dozens, sometimes hundreds of messages going back and forth on each chat each day, WhatsApp has become a big part of our club.
In the real world, we now have regular gaming on Tuesday, Saturday, and Sunday every week. Plus pick up games are scheduled at other times between members. Looking to make our Saturday evening session at Victory Comics the regular time for smaller skirmish-sized games, such as Kill Team, Necromunda, or Warhammer Underworlds.
Our games now include 40k, Age of Sigmar, Middle Earth Fantasy Battles, Star Trek Assault Wing, Star Wars: Imperial Assault, Kill Team, and Necromunda. We are starting to play Dropzone Commander too (finally!).
We are starting a Path to Glory Age of Sigmar campaign on September 25, and restarting the Pyrriah 40k narrative in the fall (date TBD). The club will run one or more Kill Team campaigns this fall and is starting an RPG campaign too.
Victory Gamers sent over 30 people to the NOVA Open this year, and will send members to the Las Vegas Open again in 2019. On October 20 the club will host its Third Annual TentCon, featuring big multiplayer narrative games in Age of Sigmar and 40k (and other stuff too!).
So, if you are interested in tabletop gaming, this is a great time for it! Contact us and we'll get you involved with all that is going on.
Here are some photos that I took from the NOVA Open 40k Trios event. I have more photos from NOVA, but going to post event by event.
We had a great summer. It started with TentCon for 40k on the first weekend of June. The following weekend was the AoS Coalescence global narrative event. The 8th Edition of 40k dropped soon afterwards. Which lead to the GW Fate of Konor global campaign. And it came to a glorious end with another fantastic NOVA Open. Including the first ever Kidshammer event at a major con.
I don't have the strength right now to do a full recap, because there was just so much good stuff this summer. Victory Gamers has grown from about 6 people in 2015 to over 30 people on our mailing list and 20+ active on our WhatsApp chats. It should only grow as we prepare to launch new AoS and 40k campaigns starting in October. Stop by, say hello, and join the fun!
Victory Gamers held its second annual narrative-based, Apocalypse-sized, all-day outdoors Warhammer 40,000 gaming event this past Saturday. If you follow this page, you know Tentcon 2016 was so much fun. Well, Tentcon 2017 took it to a new level. Thirteen players, two 6x8' tables, 26,000 points of models on the tables with fantastic custom-built and painted terrain with custom-crafted missions. So much fun. Here's a couple (hundred) photos, not necessarily in chronological order.

Apologies for the long gap in posts, but so much is going on! Victory Gamers has been busy on several fronts to increase the quantity and quality of gaming opportunities:
I had the pleasure of attending the Las Vegas Open again this year with my two boys. The LVO was held the first weekend of February in Bally's Casino. It featured the largest 40k singles tournament in the world - over 500 players! It was also the host of the first North American Age of Sigmar grand tournament. On top of that, the Games Workshop community team was there and Forgeworld brought their resins goodies for sale. In addition to tournaments, there were friendly games, narrative games, and hobby workshops of all kinds and levels. And if you were still looking for more, you could probably find something to do in Vegas. Another great job by the Frontline Gaming crew on hosting a very enjoyable con!
Here are way too many photos from our time at the event. Most of the pictures are from my games in the Age of Sigmar tournament.
It's been awhile since the last post, but that hasn't been because of the lack of things going on. Quite the contrary! It's been a very busy fall for Victory Gamers, with activities planned through the remainder of 2016 and big dreams for 2017. Here's a quick run down on what's going on. Plans for 2017 will come in a later post!
I'm sure I've forgotten something, but that's all for now. Hope to see you rolling dice soon!
If so, Victory Gamers is looking for someone to start a Star Wars: Imperial Assault (SW:IA) gaming group. Victory Gamers will provide website support, access to its gamers list, materials and other assistance. We need you to organize and host SW:IA events on a regular basis. It could be a weekly or bi-weekly gaming night at Victory Comics, monthly tournaments, an ongoing campaign, or whatever else you have in mind. Anything to give people the opportunity to play this amazing game!
If you are interested, visit the Find a Game page and send a reply using the “Find A Game” email reply function.
Here's a quick run down on what's gone on or is going on with Victory Gamers in September:
