Hola all! I hope you have had an awesome Christmas Holiday season and Santa was good to you all. I also hope you got a bit of gaming in or at least the odd brush stroke or two and are headed into a great 2016!

Currently we are pricing the tour so it is only open for Pre-Registration. You can hop aboard, secure a spot and decide to move forward when are pricing is established. The link to Pre-Registration is below as well as the full tour description but we thought we would tempt you with a bit of info…

Every second year Geek Nation Tours takes a journey to the United Kingdom to celebrate miniature gaming. We use this opportunity to discover a country in Europe and to explore some history and a battlefield or two. In 2016 we will be headed off to Greece to see the land of Sparta and to visit its battlefields, drink Greek wine, eat well and to game. There will be time to take in Greece’s stellar natural beauty and even have time for a long walks on the beach, so bring your Non-Geek Spouse! This tour will be perfect for everyone.

We will start our Greece tour just outside of Athens on the Athenian Riviera and thus we will be headed straight for the beach. A Historical tour to Marathon, Thermopylae, Delphi, Plataea and Elefsian will follow. Of course no visit to Athens can be complete without a visit to the Acropolis so that will be included as well… Then we will be on the road to visit the Acrocorinth, the Epidaurus Theater, Ancient Mycenae, the Palace of Agamemnon for just a start. We will even end up in Sparta! We will stop there and see the outdoor museum of Mystras, the local Archaeological Museum and of course even pose for a photo with the King Leonidas statue. Our final destination will bring us to Ancient Olympia and the history of the Olympic Games. We might even force you to run the ancient marathon track for more prizes from Red Republic Games. Throughout we will be privileged to see the stunning countryside and beautiful harbours of Greece.

All this and gaming with Red Republic Games. Some of their crew will be joining us on the tour and each tour participant will receive a free Arena Rex starter box set of their choice upon registering for this tour. Make sure you get them painted by the fall however, as we will have Gladiator battles throughout. Bring your models and join the tournaments as there will be plenty of booty to be fought over and prizes for only the very best of our contestants. RRG might even be bringing some new release miniatures with them, so you will be able to get your hands on a new Ludus before anyone else.

But what about the miniatures part of the tour? Every miniature wargaming Geek’s dream is to visit one of the birth places of wargaming – Nottingham England. If you are a fan of 40K, all things Fantasy, Historical Wargaming or some good old fashioned Martian Invasions – then this is the tour for you. Join us on our Pre-Tour to Nottingham and see Warhammer World, Warlord Games, Mantic Games, Battlefront Miniatures (also the home of Wargames Illustrated) – and new to this year’s line up – Wargames Foundry. Explore these wargaming sites while being surrounded by people of like mind, who are just as enthusiastic about miniature wargaming as you are. We may even have a drink and a meal at a local pub in Nottingham and maybe even meet a wargame celebrity or two.
