Historicon 2013 Prep

Preparations continue for Historicon - which is next week!!!!! (sorry for the gratuitous use of exclamations points).  Pictured to the left is Ernies from Architects of War / Alien Dungeon's ACW collection which will be used in both of the games  that Mike and I are putting on for him.

Despite the time challenges of running a business, bringing a fantastic new game out (All Quiet on the Martian Front and a new expansion for Fanticide, Ernie has found the time to to make some terrain panels for the games.  I'm really looking forward to putting the games on and there will be top flight terrain.

In other Historicon prep news, the Architects of War booth will be huge and will feature a very large presence for the upcoming "All Quiet on the Martian Front" games.  I've had the chance to play test this game a lot and it's a hoot to play.  Check out the demos and then get in line while we all wait for the release this December.

Ernie's also reported that AofW has a complete restock of Perry miniatures along with the rest of the lines they carry.  As most of you know, I'm a big Perry fan - I haven't found any miniatures that are better than theirs, period.  The new WWII line along with the plastics / metals for their American War of Independence line are simply stunning.  I think most other manufactures learn by trying to copy the Perry's.

Oh yes, Mike's finished the ironclad for our games and it's 31 inches on 28mm scale nautical glory.  I wonder if the Union can capture or sink her during the Friday night game or end up seeing her blast them to bits on Saturday......

I hope to see you at the 'con.
