Some of the biggest names in tabletop gaming will be packing up shop and heading to Gen Con Indy next week. Of these companies, a few have posted their plans for what they’ll be doing at the convention, and one of those companies is Privateer Press. In addition to turning the RAM into a Warmachine paradise, they’ll be hosting demos, maintaining a booth, and running seminars.

In efforts to keep attendees in the loop with their goings on, Privateer Press has just posted their entire Gen Con schedule for all to see. The company will be showing off both High Command and LEVEL 7 [OMEGA PROTOCOL], as well as running Warmachine and Hordes tournaments and events. Privateer exclusives will be in-tow at the company’s booth, and the RAM will be selling Steelsoul Red t-shirts, mugs, and growlers all weekend long.
