Sold Out-Toddler Time with Miranda July 27th
The Makery – Welcome to Toddler Time with Miranda! Pricing: 1 child- $20 2 children- $35 3 children- $45 Our sweet instructor Miranda has an extensive background in child care so we thought we would put those skills (and patience) to good use! Toddler Time is for younger kiddos with a shorter attention span. As all kids are different, we do not have age restrictions. Please read through the description to see if this would be something your child would enjoy! The workshop will be approximately 1 hour long. We will start by reading an interactive book about colors and how they mix, and then we will paint a sign together. You can choose from any of the 15 options shown and if you'd like your child's name below the image, please add it to the comments. Personalization is complimentary. All board backgrounds will be pre-painted white to save time during the class. Board size and material will vary between flat plywood and pallet wood (pictured) and will be approximately 8x8. We will also provide goldfish and a juice box for snack as we know little ones tend to get hungry doing anything. Unless it's dinner time of course (mom joke.) Maximum number of kids for this event is 8. We ask that there be at least 1 adult per 3 children. All kids in attendance must be registered, unless they are under 12 months old. You must stay with your child during the class. No refunds will be allowed for this class as space is extremely limited. To register 9:30am: http://themakerywa.com/register-for-a-class/toddler-time-with-miranda-july-27th-930am 11:00am: http://themakerywa.com/register-for-a-class/toddler-time-with-miranda-july-27th-1100am

Fate of Konor Week One: Astaramis
Games Workshop: Tacoma Place – Week one of Fate of Konor is underway! Games can be played anywhere, but mist be reported in store to earn points. If you field a start collecting set as part of your army you will recieve double points for your victory! This week will decide the fate of the planet Astaramis. Astaramis is a well-ordered and heavily defended hive world, the largest center of population in the Konor System and a potent symbol of Imperial dominance. Having gathered significant momentum with their early victories on the outskirts of the Konor System, the armies of Chaos spread out across the region like poison seeping into the blood stream of the Imperium. A vast segment of the Chaos armada descends upon Astaramis, the most populous planet in the system. With its teeming cities arranged in vast concentric rings, the well governed and prosperous hive world exemplifies the grand dream that is Ultramar. However, even Astaramis’ formidable orbital defence platforms and veteran garrison are not enough to hold back the oncoming tide. The Chaos armada launches waves of magmatic torpedoes, and macro-cannons obliterate planetary fortifications and engulf entire regiments of defenders in searing firestorms. Heretic Astartes and their allies slam to earth in blistering drop pod assaults, blasting apart anything that moves even as they march implacably onwards towards targets of strategic value. During the Great Crusade, the Ultramarines Primarch Roboute Guilliman made landfall upon Astaramis. In the centuries since, the population has come to regard him as a saint, raising vast statues and temples in his name. Hearts emboldened by the revelation that Guilliman has risen from his millennia-long slumber to defend Humanity once more, they fight on bravely in the face of an unceasing onslaught. From the shrines of Saviour’s Landing to the vast and imposing Quintus Gate, the streets echo with the unceasing chatter of las-fire and the dull thud of bolters and high-explosive rounds. Yet for all the tenaciousness and devotion shown by the people of Astaramis, they cannot stand alone. With every passing hour, the invaders push further inward, taking hab-block after hab-block. Xenos forces have also been spotted planetside, exploiting the confusion of battle in order to kill, loot or pursue their unknowable ends. Imperial forces have already been forced back as far as the hive's innermost spires, and the outer districts are little more than a rubble-strewn wasteland. If reinforcements do not arrive soon then Chaos will have gutted the Imperium’s greatest source of manpower in the Konor System, and destroyed a potent symbol of Imperial faith.
