Prize Preview 2016: Zombie Horde Mini Slab

Because the truth of the matter is you can never have too many zombie minis.  It’s a simple fact of (un)nature: zombies spawn zombies.  And you can start your encounter thinking you will only be fighting 6 zombies, but we all know how that goes: Gumbo the fighter goes tearing in, swearing he can take

Grave Reaper by Cody Allan Brown
Prize Preview: Grave Titan

You’ve seen minis. You have minis. Actually, you probably have a large box of Bones minis that you’re totally going to get around to painting some day (it’s OK, we all do). But you have never seen a mini quite like this. In the first place, it should probably be called a maxi, given the

Spiderweb Shield

Yes, that there is a 100% real wooden shield, hand crafted by Asheville resident (and PFS Venture Captain) James Becker.  This is not some lightweight, hang it on your wall and never touch it again type shield.  It’s solid, heavy, and the leather straps are securely bolted.  You could totally use this to defend yourself

On display here is one magnificent Cthulhu print, donated and signed by the artist,

Of course you are going to have the time of your life at AVL Scarefest (we have made secret pacts and possibly lost body parts to insure it). But just as it would be madness to only ever play one game, one would be foolish to ever only attend one tabletop gaming con. So we’re
