A couple of updates...

Kraftmark and The Games Keep join our growing list of sponsors

We are pleased to announce that Kraftmark is another second year sponsor for MechaniCon 2010! Kraftmark offers fantastic epoxy sculpting products — such as ProCreate professional sculpting putty — that are in many hobbyists' toolboxes.

Not only have they sent some of their putty products for event prizes, they will be on site at MechaniCon doing product demos. It’s a great opportunity to pick up some sculpting tips from the pros.

http://www.themechanicon.com/1/kraftmark-sponsorship-announcement/2010/09/


The Games Keep also returns as a MechaniCon sponsor, and will be offering board and card game products in our vending area. Their retail store is only a half-mile from the convention site, so plan to stop by when you come out in November.

http://www.themechanicon.com/1/the-games-keep-sponsors-mechanicon-2010/2010/09/


The ever-growing MechaniCon 2010 sponsor list also includes The WarStore, FTW Games, Jawaballs, The Adventurer’s Guild, Showcase Comics and Games Workshop.

More updates and announcements to come very soon...

Chris Bledsoe Memorial Charity Auction

Once again we will host the Chris Bledsoe Memorial Charity Auction on Saturday (November 6). The event is a silent auction in the Brandywine Ballroom from noon until 8pm.

Chris was very involved with the gaming industry and a huge fan of gaming, so the items up for bid are definitely related the gaming hobby. Anyone wanting to bid can get a bidder form at the registration desk. All proceeds will go to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

E-mail Tony Spino, the auction coordinator, at gaminggarage@gmail.com for more information about donating items and services or for any questions.

You say you want loot?!?

COME. AND. GET IT.

With three weeks before MechaniCon 2010, our prizes are starting to roll in and pile up.

What's in all those GF9 boxes?

Image

Why, it's one of this year's goodie bag giveaways...a customized MechaniCon multi-template! That's a $12 item that's free for anyone registering for our 40K GT main event.

Image

Check out Battlefoam stepping up to the plate!

Image

Here's just SOME (maybe half) of the GW product from our generous sponsors!

Image

This is some great Warmachine and Hordes support from GF9!

Image

And Kraftmark has given us some of their great hobby putty products!

Image

This is just SOME of our loot. We'll probably top $5000, and a bunch more stuff arrived in just the two days since we took these pics. So make sure to register today if you want a crack at it!

Just a quick update for today!

Industry icon Dave Taylor is once again offering his painting services for our Chris Bledsoe memorial charity auction! If you're the winning bidder, Dave will paint a 28mm model of your choice.

Followers of Dave's blog may recognize last year's winning bidder’s Vulkan He’stan model.

Image

Privateer Press also recently donated a signed copy of the Trollbloods book to add to our pile of items and services. The auction is a great way to get your hands on some cool stuff and support a great cause. All proceeds from the auction will go to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
