BOLTERCON 2022 Recap

So after a ton of work by our dedicated staff and volunteers, we pulled off a successful BOLTERCON 2022! If you've been following along, you know we've been growing into more than Warhammer 40,000 and are quite excited to see where we go from here. Relive the glory in our recap blogpost!

Announcing BOLTERCON 2022

Let's crank our yearly event up just a notch: the Invitational is now an event at our four-day convention affectionately known as BOLTERCON. We will have many things going on, not just competitive events. Also new this year is an army you can win with raffle tickets! Too much to list here, so head on over to our BOLTERCON site:

Spring Slugfest 2022
Spring Slugfest Awards

Armed with a fresh and spicy dataslate update, Christian brought his well-trained army of Janissaries and absolutely blasted the competition away. A strong finish for an award-winning sportsman, so congratulations Christian! Guard swept the awards, with Jesse's Catachans taking home the prestigious Booger Cup.
