Wargames Illustrated Issue 336: Shameless Self Promotion
The only disappointing thing is my co-host for the games, Mike M's name isn't listed. These games would not be possible without his efforts and brushwork skills. Mike painted most of the British force and helped co manage the games which with 10 players can be a bit challenging. We also had a great set of players who were able to shoulder aside my bad jokes and find a way to enjoy themselves anyway.
I know it seems both silly and a bit self aggrandizing but it is very rewarding to get a little recognition for the efforts of Mike and myself.
We'll be retiring the ACW theme from next years show and focusing on a linked set of games that span the American War of Independence through the War of 1812. How are we going to do that? To be honest, that whole "thinking" part isn't really started yet.
There was one major goof packing up from Historion'15 - I left the naval gaming mat behind - it was stock marine grade vinyl but that's easily replaced.
With the cold weather descending upon the Chesapeake, there'll be more time for painting and thinking about convention games.
