Here is a link to my blog post showing my personal favorite tables at Historicon.

I was running a couple of games, so I did not get a chance to see everything, so I apologize if I missed your game.

I plan to do an After Action Report of my game of the Battle of Bicocca in the next week or so.
There is an After Action Report of my battle of Berestechko game here: link

Some good-looking games. That Vietnam game is amazing.

Nice report. What rules did you use for Berestechko? Do you have scenario details?

I have just published an after action report on the Battle of Bicocca that I put on at Historicon 2021

On the Berestechko game I used Pike and Shotte rules as they work well in a convention setting.
I had a number of minor rule changes, but the big one for the period is I introduced "open order" for some of the cavalry. This reflects a lot of the looser cavalry formation in Eastern Europe. It is essentially skirmish order, but with the exception that open order troops can charge, unlike skirmish order troops.

I plan to try out By Fire and Sword rules at our club after Christmas. I will probably do a blog post to discuss how we get on with them.
On the scenario details for Berestechko, I will try and write them up and post them over Christmas on my blog.
