    Just wondering if any members of the community will be at Historicon and may want to meet up.   I know at least two that are going to be there.  I hope to see you guys at the event!  If you’re going to be at the event and want to meet up, just ping me a PM … or maybe I’ll just see you around the convention hall.

    Not there, but perhaps you could do a “grognard” review of the show with any interesting rules and minis we might not have seen on this side of the pond (so some of the smaller companies that don’t usually get any coverage)?

    @phaidknott – I’ll see what I can do.  It does look like there are quite a lot of Decision Folio Series games here, a history-heavy company that doesn’t really appear much (doesn’t work exclusively with miniatures).

    T10:562 JOE HACK – Impose on the Irish 1
    Thursday, 10:00 AM, 4 hrs, Players: 12, Location: Heritage: HR-41
    GM: Joe Swartz & NOWS
    Sponsor: None, Prize: None
    Period: Ancients, Scale: 28mm, Rules: JOE HACK
    Description: The Romans didn’t leave a written record of being in Ireland. Neither did the Irish, but they didn’t write either. On a clear day, the eastern tip of Ireland can be seen from western England. Perhaps the Romans thought of the Irish as meek, mild and peaceful. Perhaps the Romans were never invited in. (or they Romans may have decided not to leave a record of their humiliation) Will the Irish manage to overcome the ramparts of the Roman fort or will the Romans hold fast ? Rules taught. Minors welcome with adult.  

     

    While obviously “alternate history” – it will be interesting to see if the people running this will be basing it as a tangent off either of the historical Roman invasions of Britain.  Whether that’s Caesar’s first attempt or Claudius’ more successful attempt a few generations later, that might effect what kind of Romans we see, late republic or early imperial.

    @oriskany I’m sure you know but they are running a different scenario each day – Day 2 sounded the best one to me when I read them back in June.

    Day two – Irish Tuetoberg Wald

    The Romans have marched from their base out into the hinterland to impress the Irish with the majesty of Imperial Rome and win their hearts to beg for benevolent? Roman rule. However, the Irish were not so easily impressed much less intimidated. The Irish clans have pulled together and led by their chariots, are charging the Roman column as it winds through the Irish countryside. The Romans turn to face. Rules taught. Minors welcome with adult.

     

    Looking forward to seeing whatever you guys can catch!  Good luck.

    Thanks @robert – yes, we saw all the different scenarios in that campaign.  We just finished a meeting going through the program picking all the things we want to hit.  It will be tough.  There’s so much!!! 🙂

    BREAKFAST!!!!!!!!

    Slacking I say…..

    You should all be camped out at the Con door with only MREs to hand.

    Just remember when looking after your own Gerry

    1. Don’t put it near light, especially sunlight, it can kill him.
    2. Don’t let it get wet with water nor give it any water to drink nor bathe it.
    3. No matter how much it begs, no matter how much it cries, NEVER feed it after midnight.

    That’s actually not far off the truth, @robert – we went out for pizza late last night … longish walk in the harsh afternoon sun – Gerry was grumbling the whole way about Justin’s “Death March.”
