So, now that I'm getting a Ton of Bones and a nice chunk of Stonehaven Dwarves I really think it's time to expand my group. Currently it's mostly one or two friends and myself that are interested in the painting of miniatures and such, whereas the rest of our group is just about gaming.

We try to get together once a week for a full day on Saturday in Aumsville, but it's likely we'll aim for Salem as our main venue moreso, as people are moving here (I already have as have a couple others) and a lot of them go to Chemeketa. Once school starts up they'll also be in Salem more often during the week, so likely throw in some hanging out here and there then too.

Really, I'm just looking for anyone to hang out with that is interested in miniatures enough to at least get these bones. Maybe plan something out for when they come so we can all get together and motivate each other to paint them instead of just marvelling at their awesomeness. I'm also willing to sell/trade some miniatures from this kickstarter to people who just plain can't get the money right now or whatever else if they live in Salem or around the area, presuming they're also willing to either game with us or let us game with them or whatever else.

I'm not too big of a fan of the FLGS here because they're quite a distance away from where I live in Salem and more recently they've become less and less interested in non-card gamers and their staff likewise has become less and less knowledgeable on non-card subjects. (Recently a friend went there who had just got into miniatures and asked what all he would need to get started painting and the guys there managed to sell him a brush and some paints. That's it.)

So yeah, just looking for anyone interested in gaming and/or miniatures around the area of Salem, OR as I know there's tons of you, you just all hide somewhere... And it's apparently not Borderlands... See very few groups there, although there's a decent amount of wargamers, just not a lot for pen and paper gaming usually.

I'm down in the Lebanon/Albany area. I don't do a lot with Reaper's games, but do a lot with minis. I've been playing GW's LOTR for a year (just a friend and I) and just got into PP's Warmachine/Hordes. I don't do a lot of RPG type stuff anymore due to time and to many other hobbies. I did get some bones though through the kickstarter, mostly to try them to see if i like em, and to get the paint set. mostly paint at the moment, trying to get better at it. and hoping to get into the Warmachine tourney scene, which is decent in this area.

There is a Privateer Press Press Ganger trying hard to get Borderlands to be better towards minis and wargaming. There are two LGS in Corvallis, one is kinda blah towards wargamers and the other is strictly GW games, or better said strictly Warhammer games. Just an FYI, Evolution Games in Eugene is all about wargaming. Good tables and regular players.

anyways, I don't get out of my house much since its connected to my work. I'll be moving to near Albany come January and hope to be making trips to Salem to play Warmachine at Borderlands.

hit me up with an email, ensigndan@gmail.com.
