I'll be hosting a massive Culloden game with Richard Borg using his Commands and Colors Tricorne: American Revolution rules. These will be modified with special combat decks for the Government and Jacobite armies as well as rules for accommodating up to 7 players per side. Essentially we are playing a triple wide scenario using 28mm armies on a 16' table. Should be a hoot.

I would only join the game if the host was a proper kilt wearing GM….perhaps with a little woad paint as well to round out the ensemble.

Now if that same GM would hire a piper to lead off the session that would move the game into the stuff of legend…..or at least increase the beer around the table!

For me the battle for Lisow, Poland 13 January 1945. The players will all be on the German side as the 16th Panzer and 424th Heavy Tank Battalion counterattack Russian forces at the town of Lisow. Can they destroy the Russian spearhead and restore defenses along the Vistula?

Will be on a 6 X 12 table and we will be using Rapid Fire 2nd edition.

Great rates on the hotel. I plan to get there Weds afternoon about 3pm. I wonder if I can get a half day pass for Epcot center? LOL.

This is one show I am really hoping to get to one year, I am just disappointed that it won't be this year.

Any chance of re running the C@C game at HCon?

mpanko – careful what you wish for.

holien – sorry, not for HCon but we usually make Fall In. That could definitely be a possibility.

I am running 2 TSATF games on Saturday. Relief of Eshowe at 2pm and Rorke's Drift at 8pm. The Rorke's Drift game is full.

Lanercost2001 you are adding reasons for me to try and make fallin this year…. If I do and you run the game I will bring some decent Scottish beer.

Lanercost2001 I triple dog dare you…..
Note: The infamous Triple-dog-dare is infamous for the sole reason that you cannot back down from it--without exception! An issued triple-dog-dare has no counteraction and must be implemented and/or carried out.
If you wear a kilt I will wear will at least have a little woad face paint…and shame others on my side to wear the same…I bet Stan would look fierce!

The list of games looks great! The 3D printing booth should be awesome as well!!!

Just got my last box in from the distributor. It contained one each of all of the packs for the new Blood in the Skies, WW2 aviation. There were also new products like Team Yankee and the mare Nostrum board game with expansion.
Over 100 TANK and Wings of Glory kits as well.

Rudy, is that the Warlord's game Blood Red Skies? If so really want to see! Can't wait.

I am running Chickamauga: River of Death.

RudyNelson23 Apr 2018 12:09 p.m. PST

I did get one set in of Warlords Blood in the Skies. They came in today. The packiaging is nice but solid box so you cannot see the model as with Wings of War. But you can see a picture. I got one box starter set and about ten packs of planes.
