Did you know there is a local comic book company?

Meet the Fallen

Fallen Comics is a comic book company established out of York, Pennsylvania. Founded by Joey Logan and Robbie Bryan in September 2009 as a venture start-up in order to bring their ideas to life. From the elaborate characters and worlds which they create, the Fallen wish to entice their readers by allowing them to explore the mysterious dark corners of their minds.

Warmachine / Hordes - Alternate Reality Tournament!

Warmachine / Hordes
Alternate Reality Tournament!
Saturday, November 27th
11AM - ??
Cost $5.00

All money will go towards prizes!

Rules:

Every player should bring in their entire army (one army). From their army, they choose 2 Warcasters / Warlocks. You MUST supply all the cards and models for an opponent to use. Those models will be put into a 'pot.' Everyone will then choose 2 casters (at random) from the 'pot.'

Those chosen models will now replace any faction affiliation with your faction, and will now support your army's Focus or Fury. Warcasters will now become Warlocks and vice Versa!

These 'Alternate Reality' casters are now the ONLY casters you can choose to run your army. You now have to build a 35pt. army around each of these 'Alternate Reality' caster. You may switch armies between rounds, but you only have to use 1 of the new 'casters.

We ended up with 16 boxes (300+ lbs) of canned food donations to the York Food Bank.

The York BEST BUY was awesome to donate, deliver, set-up and tear down the AWESOME HD flat screen tv and rockin sound system.

We had 48 total entries in the costume contest (winners announced at the show and I will have them posted soon).

Over 50 people in the Zombie Safezone to watch AMC's The Walking Dead TV show.
