Nopat at HS Video

Our Hoth gaming table was in Helsingin Sanomat Nyt.fi article. Couple years ago Marko build Mos Eisley gaming table. After seeing and playing with it, I was totally hooked and I found soon myself ordering a ton of used Star Wars Miniatures gamefigures from USA and UK. Somehow for the Model expo 2015 we had planned a small Hoth display table to promote the club. I am pretty sure it was once again Marko's idea, and I said no problem. I have enough figures and had a great white wallpaper cloth for the Model Expo table.

After seeing our table in Model Expo the Hoth-Con organiser Headhunder store owner contacted us. He presented the idea for a Star Wars themed con, never seen one in Finland. Sounds fun, we said with Marko unanimously, our Club will help. For the Hoth-Con we needed a bigger table and I was ready to assist Marko. Well, must say Marko did all the work for Hoth-Con. He planned the game based on the small table we had in Model Expo, found the Fubar rules, build the scenery and GM´ed. I provided most of the Imperial and rebel infantry figures and half of the walkers for the Hoth game.

While Marko was GM'ing, I presented our Club in the next Endor table, which also gathered lot of attention. Months before the Con Marko consentrated on getting the Hoth table ready, similarly I spent several evenings to build the Endor. My idea was to built something that would really catch an eye. And naturally my 200 Ewoks needed a home. I got Endor ready in October. Just in time for Suuri Snadi event where it is was setup for the first time on Display.

Big hat for Marko to demoing 5 hours pretty much without any breaks. Many thanks for Ukko and his boy's for playing throughout the whole event. Fun seeing a kid saying I have never before played 5 hours.. True next generation gamers in the making. Thanks for also Juha and Antti helping in the Con. I don't think we have ever before handed out so many Club flyers.

It was also fun to have a short chat with Paleface. He used to live next to my best friend Make when I was a kid in Hämeenlinna and his brother was in my class at school. Back in the day he also played roleplaying games, though our gaming groups never met. But I had not seen him in 20 years, so I doubt he remembered me :)

Ps. Stay tuned there might be a next con coming. You know, we have not yet played at Endor table..
