So I have this idea to do a game convention again. I did 6 game convention s in the 90’s. This one more focused on Miniature War games, there for the name AMINICON, it is a play on AMERICA, and it also describes the idea of the convention as simple as I can, A MINIATURE CONVENTION = AMINICON. Sure I can have areas for open gaming and areas for Card Tournaments as well. But the main focus would be Miniature War Games and Miniature Painting.
As for when this will take place I have not yet decided, but I am leaning towards October. El Paso TX is lovely in October, not too hot, not too cold, the wet weather of the monsoons has pretty much passed us by so it is not humid either. And honestly I don’t know of any major events in the month of October I would have to compete with.
I am looking for Volunteers who can help with a mascot, an idea for the painting competition trophy, I was thinking the Sammy, as a play on Uncle Sam. But That is just my first idea, and would love suggestions. I also need volunteers who can help with the convention its self once I get it going. Also if you know any artist who can donate some art design for the mascot that would be awesome.
So what are your thoughts, ideas, suggestions?
