Historicon 2016: I'm back
Overall I had a blast and Mike and I ran a total 9 games over the three days with 8 players each. I really enjoyed the con but I'm a bot tried and very hoarse - my wife didn't recognize my voice when I called while driving back. Over the next few days I'll post some pictures of our games which I think were very well received. But first, the contractually obligated "loot" picture.
Clockwise from the upper left - Steve McLauchlan "convinced" me to by an airbrush and recommend a grex model which he helped me pick out. Next is a starter team and some extras for Guild Ball (yet another McLauchlan fueled expenditure). Next up are 40 28mm War of 1812 US Infantry figures from Lon at Brigade games.
I also picked up some super glue, the convention give away figure and my games won an award.
I didn't play any formal convention games this trip (too busy running my games. I did, however get a chance to try Guild Ball and am really impressed with the elegance of the game system (hence the starter team purchase)
Over the next few days I'll post more detailed write-ups and pictures of the con. Overall I thought it was a smashing success but it did feel as if attendance was down - especially of Saturday night.
More to come after a bit of rest....
