Limitless Fails Gaming Group: Otaku Recon 2016 Recap

 

Otaku Recon 2016 Recap

I had a blast at Otaku Recon 2016 but it almost didn’t happen. A few months ago I contacted the people from Kai Productions but they were not giving out spots for exhibitors. The group was disappointed but we understood. Two weeks ago the organizers offered us a spot  the main hall! I’m not sure what happened but we were willing to fill the spot. The short notice was unfortunate. I wasn’t able to make a new diorama or display board but we did the best with what we had. I think we did a lot better this year since we had a wide variety of wargames.
We decided to do a display most of our Wargames: Warmachine, Guild Ball and Infinity. Last year we did demos of Warmachine, this year we were going to focus Guild Ball and maybe Infinity. Since they were skirmish games, the demo would be easy. We set up the demo table with Guild Ball and the other table with Warmachine and Infinity. On the second day we had a small Warhammer 40k Ork display and a Dust Tactics display.
We did a few demos of Guild Ball and Infinity. The new players really liked the games and will hopefully start playing with us. Instead of video, I was able to take a time lapse with my GoPro. I will upload the video soon. Check out the Limitless Fails Gaming Group Facebook page for more info about meet ups.

Limitless Fails Gaming Group: Otaku Recon Recap

Last weekend was a great step for the Limitless Fails Gaming Group. We had a booth set up at Otaku Recon, marking our first “big” convention. Recon was not our first convention hosted by Kai Productions (we had a booth at EpiXcon), but it had the largest reach. Our experience at EpiXcon was a great first step and we tried to make our presence at Otaku Recon even better.

Our first step was a better display. A bunch of models on KR cases and felt are a good first start but a diorama display board would have been better. I made a Protectorate of Menoth display board and other members made smaller diorama pieces. In the future, I would like to build a large diorama or at the least a thematic gaming table. We also made business cards to hand out to people interested in the group.

I had other ideas for Recon that I didn’t get to finish. I wanted to finish Reznik 2 but I had to choose between the display board or painting more of Reznik. I figured the board would make a bigger impact in presentation. I also wanted to build more terrain pieces for gaming tables. I have watched a few terrain tutorials and wanted to try to build houses and hills. I wasn’t able to start these projects since I did not finish the display board or Reznik. Hopefully by next year we will have enough terrain for a few tables.

We had a great turnout with many people interested in the hobby. We did a few demo games for people interested and some even came back for a second game. I hope we can keep the momentum going and get more people interested in the hobby. Check out some of the pictures from Otaku Recon posted below.

Limitless Fails Gaming Group at Otaku Recon

This weekend November 14 and 15, will be Guam’s largest anime video games and cosplay convention, Otaku Recon. My gaming group Limitless Fails, will have a booth set up to showcase Warmachine and Hordes, a miniature wargame. We will have a small army display and a space for demos. We will also have a few matches going on, so you can see what a larger game looks like. We will also be having a small panel on wargaming at 1 p.m on Saturday.
