I'm moving to Winter Park next month, so I figured I'd see if there's anyone here from the Orlando area. Looking at a map on the GW store finder, it looks like I'll be only a couple miles from Cool Stuff Games and Rhubarb Games, which is essentially walking distance for me. Plus Sci-Fi City will be, maybe, a 10-15 minute drive away. Plenty of choices for me. Anyone around here hang out at any of these places, and/or have any recommendations about any of these stores?

I'm looking to get back in after a good year-long break. Unfortunately, the nearest place is in Lakeland. But does anyone regular to the new Coliseum of Comics in Downtown Lakeland, or somewhere in the general area?

Thanks,

Marcus Fenrir

After a survey of the area, now that I'm actually here, I've learned Rhubarb Games is literally across the street from my apartment complex, which is pretty great. It's kinda small, and the terrain is somewhat meh, but they seem to have a decent amount of players (though I still need to check the days they have 40K gaming on).

As for Sci-Fi City, it's the predicted 10-15 minute drive from my place, which isn't too bad at all. The place is bloody huge, it's like a Wal-Mart of hobby stores, plus they have a display case with a bunch of Golden Demon winning models inside, which were just incredible to look at (though not for too long, otherwise I start weeping with bitter envy :D ), plus something like nine tables to play 40K on.

So, if anyone's ever up for a game at either place, I'll be up for it, baring school commitments.

Just recently with 5th edition, my friends and I leapt back into 40k after a break several years ago. We're in the Pensacola, Florida area and looking for some addtional 40k players to join us at TBS comics on Saturdays. We don't meet every Saturday, but try to make it every other Saturday.

Having spent a good 7+ months in the area, Rhubarb has become my favorite in the area. They've got the best terrain, plus a VERY solid community of people. I heartily recommend it to anyone in the Winter Park area, and, if anyone's ever looking for a game around there, feel free to contact me. I'm one of the only Marine players at the store, so it's always nice to see some more players.

Anyone going to MegaCon ??

Just to let evryone know that I will be running a couple of games of Space Hulk. I will be there on Friday and Saturday but i will be running the games on Saturday (2/28). I will be using a modified version of a map from the Genestealer Mission book called "The Final Assault", the last one in the book. It just fits on a 4x6 table. Plenty of corners and long halls. I will be using first edition rules. This will be an Imperial vs Chaos vs Bugs. With a sprinkling of hybrids that shoot back just to make it a little more dangerous (as if a hall full of bugs isnt Dangerous enough). The game will be run for all levels of experience.

So come on down and and get ripped apart..Oops I mean have have fun.

Theres gonna be bodies everywhere !

Space Wolves are badasses that operate just barely within the rules. 13th Co. didn't even know there were rules applying to how badass they could be. DepthCharge on the Space Wolves

 

I'm so pleased that GW have gone to such great lengths to produce these awesome Space Wolves basing kits. Wraithwing on the Thousand Sons Rubic Marine release

 

"The Fell Hand is a name that has been passed on through out the Legion. When one warrior bearing it died, the name is left to be earned by another. Thus it was passed from Floki to Volund to Erik to Geigor. And then the tradition died, because censored.gif  Bjorn got the name and proceeded to live for 10 censored.gif millenia." - Sagas of the Wolf Priests. Wispy

Hi, I play at TBS in Pensacola Florida with my girlfriend and her Tyranid army, and I also host weekly gaming like 2vs2 and such at my house. TBS has too many magic players who don't shower, so if you're into getting a regular set of games in weekly/monthly, send me a PM.

I live in Orlando, just down the road from Rhubarb and Sci-Fi City. Rhubarb is a bit small, and Sci-Fi is the other end of the spectrum, being huge and all. The middle ground is Coliseum of Comics in Kissimmee, but that is a bit of a drive. There is a big community at the Coliseum, lots of good guys there.
