Looks like there isn't a ton of activity in this area, but I'm about 30 minutes east of Columbus. I'm hoping to find someone local for Grimdark Future and/or Firefight. Open to the other games as well.
You would not need your own army, I have enough models to field two armies in GDF (HDF and BB), about 1600 pts each, and probably enough for Firefight as well although I haven't tried. I MAY have enough for the fantasy games but I haven't built any yet. I can also supply enough dice, game mats, resin, card, and other terrain to populate tables with a bit of variety so you wouldn't need that either. The only thing I really don't have is a ton of wargame experience, I can probably count on one hand the times I've played a wargame of any kind.
If you are just looking to relax, have fun, and play some casual OPR, then we are on the same page. If you like low stakes matched play, or want to do some narrative gaming, that's perfect.
I'd prefer to meet outside of Columbus at a game store if possible, but open to the stores in Columbus or somewhere in between as well.
Let me know if you're in the area and looking to kickstart some OPR. Looking forward to hearing from you.
