Between arriving and setting up my game I took the opportunity to snap a few pictures of games in progress and blow my entire budget on two purchases. Apologies to anyone running a game that I missed. J&R was roving the hall throughout the convention and will certainty be posting a more comprehensive report soon. But, for now, here are the photos.
anybody that knows me is aware that I'm a sucker for any game with jungles and/or steamboats,
this one had BOTH, and some very nice water effects as well
good terrain, native huts, beautifully painted figures.....and a STEAMBOAT!!!
neat use of a child's toy to make a "fossil dig " scene
I have heard good things about these rules, I wasn't able to give them a try
huge numbers of figures
nicely done paint jobs
now I want to dig out my Ral Partha figures and get to work
these are true "old fashioned" 25mm figures from back in the Dark Ages,
when a millimeter was actually a millimeter long
beautiful proof that you don't need a figure 32mm tall to do a good paint job!
The weird VSF style of this game always appealed to me but the Housemartin bought the whole shooting match as soon as they came out so I never got any
more lovely figures
and lots of horses, I love cavalry,
I'm no good at running them, I just think they are cool
beautiful paint-jobs on the minis
very nice terrain
my Goodness that is a lot of fencing!
of course I brought my Castillo
(and look, I managed to bring the ladders this time!)
here is one half of the purchases I made today
(notice that I paid the princely sum of five bucks for it)
and here is the other half
(I won't say what I threw in on this lot, just in case my wife reads the blog!)
I had a great time at the convention, I'm glad I made it and look forward to attending next year.
