WARHAMMER AGE OF SIGMAR MINIATURES GAME EVENT
Saturday, February 27th from 4pm to 9pm

This is a Warhammer Age of Sigmar Campaign Event!

Players can bring whatever armies or units they have. Mixing armies, such as Chaos and Elves for example, is okay for this event. No more than 30 models per scenario please, though swapping between each round is acceptable.

There will be three separate campaign scenarios to play in succession, which will be revealed at the event. The event is winter-themed, based on a campaign-only Hero Mage unit called The Oighear. Each campaign will revolve around helping thier Mage, who has hired you and your fellows as mercenaries. Rise to power, and become the supreme sovereign over the Oighear Tribe! Each scenario-specific event round will determine how well you can move, and command your army given the harsh ways of the Oighear, defending your charge.

Armies do not need to be painted to participate. Proxies, however, are not permitted. Please print out a list of the units you wish to use.

$5 entry fee
Prizes in store credit based on the amount of players participating

Deep in Chamon, the Realm of Metal, lies the Silverglades. A frozen land of perpetual snowstorms, it is a barren waste, uninhabitable to all but the most hardy of folk. There reside the Oighear, a tribe of Mages who have learned to manipulate the primal forces of the Winds of Izotz, the powers of Ice.

Every thousand years, the Great Storm arrives and covers the land in snow. It is this time when the Oighear decide upon their new tribal leader. Seeking aid from mercenary armies, they march to war upon one another in an effort to expel their rivals from Chamon and take control. Now is that time; the Great Storm approaches and the Oighear march to war…

What IS Warhammer Age of Sigmar?

Here’s a great article about the game:
http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2015/jul/17/warhammer-beginners-guide-games-workshop-age-of-sigmar

“Warhammer is a tabletop battle game which puts players in command of armies of valiant humans, noble elves, savage orcs or a variety of twisted and monstrous creatures. Players collect forces of miniature plastic models, all with different stats and abilities, and use them to play out clashes on a tabletop battlefield. Unlike a board game, where players’ moves are restricted to defined areas, Warhammer commanders freely maneuver their units set distances using rulers and resolve shooting and hand-to-hand combat by rolling dice.”

Come on by during the event, and see first-hand how the game is played!

POKEMON
POKEMON YOUTH LEAGUE
Sundays from 4pm to 6pm

Ages 8-16
New players always welcome!

Our Pokémon Youth League provides a nearby place for you to get together with other fans of both the Pokémon Trading Card Game and the Pokémon video games, and have some fun!

Using your own cards and Pokémon video games, you can play, trade, and even earn cool prizes! The best part is that you can do all this with other Pokémon players who love collecting and playing just as much as you do!

What IS the Pokémon Trading Card Game?

Download the rules here…
http://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-tcg/rules

…or stop by during our events to see first-hand how the game is played!

“You are a Pokémon Trainer! You travel across the land, battling other Trainers with your Pokémon, creatures that love to battle and that have amazing powers! Your deck of cards represents your Pokémon as well as items and allies that help you on your adventures.

Trading card games are strategy based and use collectible cards to let each player customize his or her game. The best way to learn to play the Pokémon TCG is with a Trainer Kit. This has two ready-to-play decks that walk you through the game, step by step. From there, try a theme deck to get an idea of the different kinds of decks out there. Once you’re ready, you can start building your collection of cards with Pokémon TCG booster packs. Trade with your friends for the strongest Pokémon or collect all your favorites! Then, build your own 60-card deck, play with your friends, and show off your own personal Pokémon team!

In the Pokémon TCG, your Pokémon battle your opponent’s Pokémon. The first player to take all of his or her Prize cards wins! Also, if your opponent cannot draw a card at the beginning of his or her turn, or has no Pokémon left in play, you win the game!”

But, be careful – players who fight by your side in one round may be at your throat in the next, because in V-Wars the virus is always spreading!

ALIENS
ALIENS SERIES 7 AF ASST
NECA
NECA’s best-selling Alien action figure line continues with new favorites! Series 7 includes the long-awaited release of brand new figures from Alien vs. Predator, which are the perfect companion pieces to the currently available AvP-based Predator figures. The Warrior Alien and Grid Alien feature over 30 points of articulation and bendable tails, and stand over 9″ tall. Also in this series is our very first concept figure based on the original prototype suit for the “Big Chap” Alien in the 1979 movie. H.R. Giger originally had the suit cast in a translucent flesh-tone but, in one of the many technical hurdles that had to be overcome to bring his creature to life on screen, repeated difficulties with the material forced the change to the coloring seen in the movie. The figure features 25 points of articulation and bendable tail, and stands over 9″ tall.

 

GREMLINS
GREMLINS 2 BAT GREMLIN DLX BOXED AF
NECA
One of the most requested Gremlins figures of all time is finally here! Our latest deluxe action figure from Gremlins 2: The New Batch is the spectacular Bat Gremlin, with a massive wingspan of nearly 18″. This detailed re-creation of the puppet seen in Gremlins 2 is fully articulated, including hinged ears, hinged jaw, and jointed arms that allow the wings to spread open and fold closed! At approximately 6″ tall, it’s perfectly in scale with our previous Gremlins action figures, too. Comes with a “flight” display stand.

    HAPPY NATIONAL SUPERHERO DAY FROM EC!!!

    Today is National Superhero day, and it's the perfect opportunity for us to say THANK YOU to all of our EC Family Members (hey, that's YOU!) for your support of us, but also for all the super-heroic things you do on a daily basis that impact those around you for the greater good!!!

    It's also a chance for us to say THANK YOU to our other real-life superheroes, such as our police, military, fire officers, teachers, volunteers and others who sacrifice to make life better for others!!!

    And, most of all, THANK YOU to all of our amazing cosplayers who donate their time, talent, energy and money to our local fundraising groups such as TampaBay Squad FL Garrison, Gamers on The Edge, Costumers With a Cause (CWC), Suncoast Ghostbusters, 2Wheel Heroes, the MUCH Foundation, and more!!! THANK YOU for ALL you do!!!

    Here's a great example of a MUCH Foundation event covered by 10News WTSP and Dion Lim just a few months ago!!!

    MAY THE FARCE BE WITH YOU!!!

    The demented geniuses at Bad Lip Reading have done it again!!! This time, they've light-sabered Star Wars The Force Awakens, and it's nothing short of hilarious!!!

    Chewbacca steals the show, once again, and Han Solo is voiced by none other than...Mark Hammill!!!

    Once you're done giggling, you can stop by and see your friends at Emerald City Comics, where we have an entire Star Wars section... that is nothing to laugh at!!! It's filled with treasures you won't find anywhere else in one place!!!

    Enjoy!!!
