Never noticed that on the streams. Maybe the webcam/mic distortion tricked me. 🙂

The convention is great @ghent99 ! There are four complete floors of content going on, we’ll be hard pressed to cover it all. We do have three days though, so please stick with us!

@avernos @oriskany @dignity

I know it’s probably too much effort but would it be possible to list the rules the various games are using in the descriptions?

Cheers

We’re trying to mention the name of the system, we’ll try to make a point of it.

Looking forward to any jungle warfare related games, particularly Vietnam. Although my Empress Marines are Hue based and urban warfare would be more appropriate..
It is only a question of time until we get grunts for the jungle by all accounts 😎

Wish I could be there but hey, Mr Taxman wants his money end of the month..

I have some Burma / Malaya photos that are submitted and in the rotation for publish.

Great job as always OTT!

I was really trying hard to make it this year to Historicon, but work intervened and sunk my plans. It would have been grand to play as many games as possible in the four-day span, not to mention meeting the OTT crew in person.

Too bad, too … I have found a complete set of Panzer Leader in the original box down in “Wally’s Basement!”

Brilliant coverage guys, really enjoyed this.

Is it possible to get some coverage of any Dux Britanniarum games (too fat lardies) Please ??

oriskany

Added to the list!

Ah man! That’s the way it works for me…….

Still I’m enjoying the coverage that OTT is gathering for those of us that could not make it.

oriskany

Seriously, @recon63@avernos and I both looked for it, we honestly did not see it.

@oriskany & @avernos, no worries, thanks for looking anyway, much appreciated. Loved all the coverage done I could not have asked for anything more!! ;D
