I could probably show up. Scarborough town centre is probably the best place for me.

Ah, now, what if they're not actually models from the army I'm fielding?

I collected models for the hobby rather than army-building, see...
Personally, as long as you can field a reasonable (believable) proxy for a valid army list. I'm ok

But... I'm going through a rough patch. Broken glass rough...

If my situation ends up as bad as I fear, I'm signing up for another tour over seas. And chances are, that's what will happen, and I won't be here for the meet-up.
Don't worry about it. We have oodles of time to worry about where we'll game. I am stoked about this. Will be a nice diversion from my Summer Camp job.

Well I've put you in the maybe, just in case.

I have no problem with specialist games or some Warhammer fantasy, but the focus should be on 40k... Maybe a combo of 1500 points game (painted or not) Combat patrol and team based Apocalypse or Planetstrike.

Alright

We got 7 month left to go, may seem a lot, but there are still a lot of logistic to do.

We need:

1) To figure out who is comming and who might be coming -The list has started, but we need to complete it,

2) We spoke of 1500 points army. Everyone is ok with this number? Apocalypse Game would be done in teams,

3) Place. We need to find a place and make sure we can make reservation and have enough place for all. At the latest this should be settle in May: giving us 2 month for travel arrangement,

4) Sleeping arrangement for us out-of-Towner. A nearby motel would be best,

5) I would like to do my Rhana Dandra Scenario: Eldar Ragnarok. I would need to figure out what army would be brought to work out the teams...if you are interested to play it.

Right, I totally didn't realize we left you hanging here. I agree, there is a lot to work out, and limited time.

The list is really based on who reads this and says hello and such forth. I am partially sure I will be able to make it, but I am not totally sure anymore. But I'll see what I can do. Now, for army size, 1500pts is a good amount. Not too big that it's unreasonable for people, but not too small as to stifle what people with larger collections may want to bring. Apoc. Game would be fun, and generally much easier to organise and run then a slew of pick-up games. Will generally require less room, and allow all of us more of a chance to socialize.

The place to play, I am thinking that the Dueling Grounds may be the best bet. I have yet to go there myself, but I will try and head down for one of their 40k nights at some point to scope out the place (and sop I can get in some saturday gaming...SCORE!). It is a very easy to place to get too by public transit (TTC costs $3 to get anywhere along it lines). and it's pretty much JUST off the Dundas West station.

The only other places I know of nearby, would be the toronto bunker (Which has two 4x6 tables which can be smashed together, the others are all built up on immovable tables) and the Two Headed Dragon (which is up in the middle of nowhere, and I have no idea what it's like). I can ask at the GW if we could 'rent out' the big table at all for this next time I am there, but it may depend on what events that they have going on as well, and it's bound to be a busy place.

Accommodations I am not sure of either at the moment, but I'll do some google searches of places which are near the subway lines which would allow easy access to any of the three places I mentioned (all are near subway stations). There is a large meeting room I could rent out in the apartment I live in, but thats a last resort, will cost money down payment and I cannot guarantee I will be able to actually make it. As it is downtown Toronto, I would imagine there is a ton of places to rent out accommodations, however cost is the biggest issue.

If we are doing an apoc. game, I don't mind doing a senario for it. Make it a lot more fun then just lining up the models and smashing in each others faces. I would say now that the Army I would bring is the Necrons, so I am not sure how well they fit into it though.

I'll see if I cannot scope out some answers for 3 and 4. If anyone else is from the area too, they could also chip in and help as well.

Yes I agree turn out will vary a lot on who comes in and say hello, but still, If we don't try we won't get a chance to meet.

Of the place you mention, the Toronto Bunker seems to be good for a big group, and keep me posted on the Dueling Ground, if it's good and clsoe to the subway/bus lane that would be great.

Accomodation might be a bit of a hassle but will figure a way.

So 1500 point games sounds good and if you want to work out a Apocalypse scenario for teams that would be great and give us a chance to do a bit of role-play at the same time.

So for those who will come or might come. What Army will you bring?
