ChillCon 2017 - Hosted by Chilling Wargamers and Asylum Wargames, Sheffield UK

We like a good show here at Noobs and their Paintbrush, be it one that has been going for yonks or a brand new event. In this case, we have a brand new one for you!

ChillCon, as the name suggests, is the first convention from the crowd in charge of the Chilling Wargamers Facebook Group (here) and Asylum Wargaming (here). While I could probably waffle on for a bit, I'll let their memo do the talking to fill you in on all the right details.

Asylum Wargaming, co-hosts Chilling Wargamers, and chief sponsor S.L.A. Industries: CS1 will debut Sheffield’s new wargames show, Chillcon, on 27th May, 2017. Guests can not only look forward to guest speakers, tournaments and participation games, but also the cream of the UK’s independent wargames traders, manufacturers and publishers. The event’s participation and demonstration games will feature ArcWorlde and S.L.A Industries: Cannibal Sector 1 alongside Kings of War and Bolt Action tournaments, giving guests plenty to see and enjoy. They can also enjoy the event’s trademark Chillcon Carni and a free goody bag upon entry. 

Whilst confirmed traders include—amongst others—Warploque Miniatures, Daruma Productions, Dark Ops and Broken Toad, a limited number of pitches are still available. Traders or companies wishing to reserve such a pitch should email, as should potential partners or traders wishing to place their products in Chillcon’s goody bags.

Chillcon will be held at Ecclesfield School, Chapeltown Rd, Sheffield S35 9WD. Tickets will be £6.00 on the door or £5.00 in advance, with £1.00 of every ticket sold being donated to the Autistic Society, Help for Heroes and the Myasthenia Gravis Association.

Now, doesn't that sound like fun! To get yourself some tickets or to check out the traders attending, head over to the ChillCon website and to keep up to date with the very latest news about the event, join their Facebook Event Page.
