I am very happy to report that after running a number of demos we have a small but vibrant community in Buffalo NY. Our local store (Knight's Blade) now carries BFaS and we have 11 players that have in the range of 7-11FSP worth of forces (some with a few). We have every fraction represented!

There is growing interest in expanding to the division level and about 1/2 of our current player base wanting to do so as soon as possible.

Here are a few pictures of a big demo gaming running at the store. Most of our figures are slowly getting painted, including mine, but I DID manage to get all my terrain painted and built so at least the board looks nice. This was a 3v2 game with another 3-4 players actively watching and supporting various sides and jeering the enemy!

Looks like a great table you play on and it sounds like a great group to play with. Those numbers are healthy for a community too.

Congratulations, this certainly sounds like it could not have gone any better in terms of building a community. An example to aspire to!

This match was iconTRA and iconSWE vs iconRUS and two iconHRE players. :) It was a lot of fun! These type of big games really draw in a crowd. We are planning on doing another one and advertising it to hopefully attract even more players!

:) By Fire and Sword now has more players than Bolt Action in Buffalo.

Not too long of a drive, right off I-90!
I joined the store's FB page to follow up on when you game. I called too....
The owner said you guys are there mostly Thursdays, but sometimes on the weekend too!
