My first Wargames Convention, lots of fun, great to meet people in person that I had only met online. For a small event there was an incredible variety in games being played. Here are some pics with a link to my blog at the bottom which has a link to an Imgur album with many more.

Lion Rampant, Northern Crusades:

Some Battletech:

ECW using Armati 2 renaissance:

Some AWI Sharpe Practice:

Thank you wrgmr1, I do plan on coming next year. I have already started turning over ideas in my head for what kind of table to bring.

Wow! You do plan ahead.
I was planning on doing a Swiss vs Burgundian, Armati 2 game with a good friend of mine. Unfortunately he could not make it so I put on a Rapid Fire game, operation Mitten. Last minute change.

Well, it took me 5 months to make the 2 Pulp Alley tables

I thought took pictures of that game but can't find them…:(

The Trumpeter Salute is an awesome event, made all the more impressive by the limited population they draw attendees from.

Here's a few photos of my game. Didn't get that many as I was running the game.

Your table looks great, and some excellent pictures. How did the game play out?

Really well. All the players had fun, with several comments about it being a well balanced game. The Germans won as the British had to take two villages and the chateaux. They only took two objectives, when we ran out of time.
