Francisco Erize recently ran a game of Blood & Plunder at MillenniumCon in Austin Texas over the Veterans Day weekend. This is the Lone Star Historical Miniatures (LSHM) wargaming show.

Here are some Pictures from his exciting Millenniumcon convention game.


I ran a B&P game, raid scenario. French buccaneers attacking a Spanish settlement defended by militia.


It went great. I used my unit and weapon cards that I bought at Historicon and they are such help for introducing the new players into the game !!!


The players had a lot of fun, they were all new to the system.



Firelock games sent minis for all of them and even a rule book to award to a lucky player.


Well lucky is in the eye of the beholder since to award the book I did the following:

during the game as players did their stuff, for every 1 they rolled they would get a golden doubloon and at the end of the game the player that accumulated the most golden doubloons got the rulebook 🙂 ( players loved the idea )

So happy players, happy GM and happy convention organizers.

Thanks firelock games !!!

I'm on a roll here. A really in depth analysis and critique of the British strategic bombing effort in WW2 – presented in great depth and detail – nearly 500 pages.

Well worth a look!

….Everyone Who Will Live or Die.

"Valar Morghulis. We're approaching the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, and we've seen so many deaths over the years. Your Starks, your Lannisters, your zombie babies. And now we're down to a trim, core cast of characters. Except not really. There are still so many people alive on this show who could die in season eight.

Even though we've had dozens of notable deaths on Game of Thrones, we're still left with about 40 key characters. I would know. I counted them. I didn't include all the random lords scattered around Westeros and Essosóthey're walker fodder, who cares. I'm talking about the people who matter. So please enjoy my predictions on who will live or die in the final season of Game of Thrones.

Out of 40 characters, I ended up with 16 I think will make it to the end. That's right, only 16. Not a lot of people. While I did conduct some polls on Twitter, most of these predictions come from me, Beth Elderkin, as a person who watches HBO's Game of Thrones. And while I'm feeling confident in many of these, I'm sure the show is going to surprise me. I didn't include the dragons and direwolves eitheróbut in short, they're going to be fine. Except that ice dragon. He's ice toast…."

"Give me a B…..B, give me a U…..U, give me a G….G, what does that spell…….BUG."

True words. Very annoying. I suspect it is a code problem: timing interference when posts reach the site more or less simultaneously.
