Great answers everyone - here is my take:
1. So far every year - Dave's house. It may grow too large and new accomodations may be needed. As of right now (Dave correct me if I am wrong) it will be at Dave's house.
2. Is is regularly every spring so far (this will be the fourth one). No vendors yet but alot of figure trading, take out ordering etc. No admission fee - people usually bring stuff to share (food, drink, figures etc). It is a gaming weekend that involves people who play Warzone/Chronopia as a base. Many other games are played during the weekend with a concentration on (but not limited to) Warzone/Chronopia.
3. No beginner's table is needed IMHO. Everyone just wants to have a good time. Most (if not all at Talamania) would be more than happy to assist in helping you back into the game.
OK some for you:
How far from Philly are you?
What do you play Warzone/Chronopia and what armies?
What figures do you need?
Hope to see you there.
Thanks for all of the info. It sounds like fun - I hope to make it this year (as long as I don't have to get a formal invitation; I'd hate to impose on Dave).
As for your questions:
I'm probably 5 1/2 hours from Philly, but have been there and the surrounding areas several times, so somewhat familiar with it. I don't mind the trip.
I play Warzone/Capitol. I'm working on building my force up.
As for figures, currently I'm looking for the old style Capitol Hvy infantry (football helmets) with Hvy weapons x2 (to go with my old school infantry squad); Desert Scorpions Sgt. and Hero/tank-hunter; Capitol Rangers of any variety. I don't have a whole lot of Warzone or Chronopia to trade, but I do have minis from other games (Heroclix, Star Wars Minis, Starship Troopers, Infinity, others); I'm also always willing to buy my wants for reasonable prices.
Thanks again everyone. I am looking forward to participating in Talamania this year.
