Seminars

Seminar Pre-registration
Seminar registration provided by Game Cafe.

This year, Recruits is bringing back seminars to improve your gaming experience. In the past we have offered historical seminars but are proud to introduce something new. This year we have asked artist to share tips and tricks for painting miniatures, designing games, and even sculpting.

Some of the seminars have fees attached to cover the cost of materials used. All fees collected go directly to the instructors of the seminar. Prospective students may now purchase tickets for these events in advance. Seats are limited in all seminars.

We would like to thank Game Cafe for providing us access to a shopping cart to make this happen.

So take a look at the list, it's fantastic!
