I attended my second ever gaming convention last weekend (the most recent Historicon being my first). Commentary on the games I observed and played as well as almost 200 photos can be found on my blog, Scrum in Miniature.



Battle Valor game in 15mm


An amazing castle…


A cool skirmish game…


Great looking Mad Max game.


Giant chariot racing arena with hundreds of painted spectators.


Cool 28mm tanks.


Sky galleons!



Again, lots of commentary and scores and scores of photos at my blog, Scrum in Miniature:

Great AAR, Joe; and you got to play with the redoubtable H.A.W.K.S. on Sunday; doubleplusgood funcrime! (that's when you have more fun than the government has decided you should have within a weekend.)
Your profile says you live near the H.A.W.K.S. (near Havre de Grace) and they would be a good bunch to hang with, if you have no local gamers.
Start anticipation for Cold Wars (March 16-18, 2018), again, at the Host, and your second Historicon (July 12-15, at the Host for 2018), anf Fall-In! Nov 9-11,2018, again at the Host. Next year will be the year of the Hat Trick.
Hope to see you there.

And, Joe, don't forget about the HAWKs' own convention, Barrage, which this year will be 19-20 January 2018 in Havre de Grace.

See information about Barrage here:
See information about the HAWKs here: link

There is also a HAWKs Facebook page.

I was unable to attend Fall In this year, but I'm sure I'll see you in the HAWKs room at Cold Wars if not earlier at Barrage.

Welcome aboard! Glad you had fun!

Joe- As capncarp says, you're not that far from the HAWKs meeting area up in Aberdeen Maryland.
I will send you some more info on Facebook.

And as surdu2005 says above, please mark the date for our regional convention in Havre de Grace this January!

Great report and photos thanks!

Thanks for all of the kind words, everybody. Much appreciated. And thanks for reaching out on Facebook, Chris. Very much want to hook up with you and the HAWKs crew…and I already put BARRAGE on my calendar. Looking forward to it!
