I sent mine in already. It is a Carlist War game using Black Powder. 28mm. Probably on an 8x10' table.

I still have to send mine in, but I am running a 20mm Vietnam game using FNG: 2nd Tour rules.

I think I will call it The Mobile Guerrilla Force, the Black Box, and Bo Gritz. It will be a scenario based on the real misson by then CPT Bo Gritz's company of the MGF to recover a top secret black box from a U-2 that crashed over S. Vietnam.

Needless to say, Charlie will get involved … up to no good, of course.

Pictors,is that the game you ran at Origins? I might just pre reg for that one if I can!

Personal logo Pictors Studio Sponsoring Member of TMP07 Dec 2012 6:31 p.m. PST

No, it will be different from the one I ran three Origins ago. That was Oriamendi. This will have fewer units but they will be bigger. The scenario will be different and the table will be much bigger with a town in the middle.

I am doing the Saga of Aethelflaed. Going with the theme and giving her some credit.
