There are players at both locations as well as a few others, though I don't know their schedule.

Good to know that there's a community nearby.

Welcome, welcome. We are just one of the older groups, but definitely not the only one in the metroplex.

The Texas toy soldier crew use to meetup on Tuesday, but I think they had some personal stuff come up and are not as frequent. I’d check on the Facebook groups to be sure.

Madness has a group every third Saturday and one or two smaller groups that meetup on and off.

Denton has one or two groups. Not sure about details.

I know there actually a few people trying to get something started at common ground games in Dallas. I think they are still working on that.

There is a store called: free range pumpkins near Arlington that has a group. Don’t know a ton about them, besides I met one of them at a pizza place and talked about tech for a bit.

Y2K comics has one or two groups, but I never really hear much from them.

Pretty sure Sci-fi factory also has a group, not sure which location though.

I'll try to make it up to Madness and see what's what. I don't mind driving to Gen X, but Madness and Texas Toy Solider are significantly closer to me.

Sevengates: You want to watch the Leviathans discussion video that went up today, especially near the midpoint.

I gotta do some family stuff while my dad is in town. So if I’m not there by the time you guys wanna start, go on ahead without me. If I show up late I’ll just hang around and BS with you.

Since some folks who were interested couldn't make it, how do you guys feel about Leviathans again on August 7th?

New revisions to the tourney rules, now in .txt form!  :D

In other news: they are really all over the place with the schedule at work. We are supposed to have two weeks planned out, and right now we are lucky to have one week planned, and often the day BEFORE the work week rolls over. I won't know if I'm free till Saturday most weeks.

I expect my schedule will become like that from late September through either November or late December...

Welcome, welcome. If you ever cancel, you can show up anytime. We will post what we are up to most of time here. We also have people who play during the week. I’m sure they will chime in next.

We could roll a pickup game of Alpha Stike. I still want to play Xwing too so I can try out the Razor Crest, but I have to organize my stuff and get a list builder.

Welcome welcome, like psofan said if you ever do get a Sunday drop by.
If you don't have minis, well someone might scratch up a lance or star and we'll just roll with it.
Stone wasn't cryo frozen. He just got stuck in a freezer Hans Moleman style and we felt bad about it. So we made up this lie.

Let's go with Alpha Stike then. We'll have to play it by ear. I'll bring my 400 and 250 point forces and we'll just see what everyone else brings as well I guess. We'll make it work.

whistler,

No problem man, I got you covered :)

Hey all! Super new player here looking to get into the game. I have the three box sets (working on painting it all) and was hoping to find anyone up for a teaching game. I'm out in Wise county, we west of DFW.

Ello, Ello. Already said it up thread, but you are welcome to come in any Sunday you can and I’m sure someone will be more then willing to teach ya. There are a few other stores a bit closer to you, but you’d have to call or show up and hope to catch them there.

We also have a couple others who are over at gen-x during the week, I’m sure they will chime in with when they are there.

Welp, I guess our complaints got through cause they did the schedule two weeks in advance again. With that being said: I’ll be free this Sunday(7th).

Terence, thanks for the ships link. Also, I checked the 1/2500 original "TV" model set; it does NOT have decals for all the "Coni's", just Enterprise.

Sorry I missed Sunday, slept in late. Now that I’m refreshed from the last week and a half of working, I’ll try to make sure I get up there this Sunday(14th).

I have been working on another new Alpha Strike scenario for potential demo or convention play.

This one is set in 3051, a group of mercenaries are chasing a bounty too big to ignore, and perhaps too good to be true.

As this is meant for intro and con games it is set up in more of A GM and players model than a competitive scenario.

Anyone interested for Sunday?
