Build up and paint your army
This year UniCon will feature a wide variety of wargames on its tables. A wargame is a type of strategy game in which players enact battles between opposing forces that are represented by miniature models of soldiers, artillery, and vehicles on a model of a battlefield.
Daugavpils Geek club will bring one of the most popular miniature wargames in the world, called Warhammer 40,000. The game is set in the grim darkness of the far future, where human civilization is beset by hostile aliens and malevolent supernatural creatures. The models in the game are a mixture of humans, aliens, and supernatural monsters, wielding futuristic weaponry and magical powers.
Visit Daugavpils Geek booth to see a game of Warhammer 40,000 played and learn the basics of the game yourself. In addition to games demos, there will be a couple of events organized. For example, visitors will get a chance to participate in a speed painting competition. No paints, brushes or miniatures needed. Everything will be provided, but places are limited. Club members will also organize what is called Bitz Bazaar. Visitors can bring their extra miniatures or bits that they are ready to trade and find other people's gently used items to trade! Participants can set up an "auction sheet" to allow multiple bids on their items if they wish. ABSOLUTELY NO CASH SELLING BETWEEN CUSTOMERS IS PERMITTED!
