Rogue Trader Gaming

Hey Guys, its been awhile since I posted anything non event related, so you have been warned!

With that being said I wanted to let you all know that I've made a new blog called Rogue Trader Gaming. What is it? Well it's a place for me to post battle reports and other gaming related stuff. Mainly I thought elphilo battle reports would sound lame so I came up with a new name!

I've already got a battle report up there and I have another one that I just need to edit. I'll probably be posting up my LVO experience up there as well.

But the real questions is, what does it mean for this blog? Nothing. I'll still continue to post up Huzzahs' event's information up here so you won't have to subscribe to anything new to be kept informed. I just wanted to let you all know that I've made a new one for more gaming related stuff.

Anyway here are some links in case you're interested in checking the new blog out!

That should be it! Really if you want to keep on top of things you just need to subscribe to our blog. I tend to post everything there as well.

Hopefully you'll enjoy the content I bring out!

Also as an aside, I'll be posting up Huzzahs' March RTT info after the Hammer in the New Year on February 27-28. 

Happy Gaming!

NOVA Open 2016

Hey Guys I just wanted to let you know that tonight (2/1/2016) at 8pm registration for the NOVA Open happens!

What is the NOVA Open?
The NOVA Open is a Washington, DC area Tabletop Wargaming Convention with a strong focus on organized play, charity, hobby seminars, and social connection. 1,200 gamers attended in 2015.
2016 will be the 7th year of the NOVA Open, whose origins lie in a 32-person outdoor charity BBQ tournament held in 2009 in Springfield, VA.
The NOVA's legacy events include a 256-slot Warhammer 40,000 GT, but it now hosts 100+ player events in X-Wing, Warmachine, Malifaux, and large organized play tracks in numerous other game systems.
NOVA hosts some of the world's best hobby instructors - Justin McCoy of Secret Weapon Miniatures, Roman and Raffa of Massive Voodoo, Jessica Rich of Brush Mistress, Caleb Wissenback, and many more. Seminars are offered all day, every day of the con, and include new 4-hour hands-on workshops as of 2016.
NOVA partners with a sister organization, a formal 501(c)(3) charitable foundation known as the NOVA Open Charitable Foundation to raise funds and awareness in fighting critical causes around the world. We especially focus on leveraging the compassion of fellow wargamers and hobbyists to raise funds for Doctors Without Borders, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and the Fisher House Foundation. We primarily achieve this through an international consortium of brilliant miniature figure artists who collaborate to create world-class pieces of miniature art, including full armies, display boards, and individual show pieces. These are raffled and auctioned off through a combination of world-wide online raffles and at-NOVA raffles and silent auctions. Entering its 4th year, the NOCF raised over $25,000 for charity in 2015.

Interested attendees, partners, and vendors with questions should contact 

So now that that is out of the way, why should you go to the NOVA Open? Because its a 200+ person GT in our back yard! Also it doesn't hurt that I help run the 40k GT this year ;)

If you're interested I'd sign up sooner rather than later! :D
