Back from TwisterCon XII

Got back from TwisterCon yesterday and it was back to work today. With no time yet to do a proper report on the games played, here is a little peek at "Blooding at Jenkins' Ford" to tide you over until I can get to it. 

It was great to see the Tulsa crew again, and even picked up a couple of new yard dice!

Check back later this week for the proper update I mentioned.

See ya!

"Blooding" a Week Away!

Here's a peek at the map of the terrain we'll be scrappin' over at TwisterCon in Oklahoma City. . . wait for it. . . Oklahoma, next weekend. Game description is here.

Just have a few more figure bases to finish up this weekend then we'll be all set.

Come see us if you're in the neighborhood. Or make a special trip to the neighborhood, like me.

See ya!

Taking the F&IW on the road. . .

My 54mm French and Indian War game is heading down to Oklahoma City. . . Oklahoma. . . later this month (March 25th and 26th) for TwisterCon XII. We're going to play two games, one Friday night and the second Saturday morning.

The game is called Blooding at Jenkins Ford and is described in the program: 

French and Indian War. This scenario represents one of the many small skirmishes that erupted in the forests of North America as colonial defenses, bolstered by English Regiments, sprung up after the defeat of General Braddock at the Battle of the Monongahela. French and Indians dispute British and Colonial control of a key river ford on the frontier.

Scale is 54mm and features my collection of John Jenkins models; rules are This Very Ground by Iron Ivan Games

I haven't been to TwisterCon before, but the program looks fun; plenty of games, vendors and even a flea market. Come see us if you're in the neighborhood. 

Then next month we'll play a lot closer to home at the next Recon, here in Minneapolis, on April 23rd. A lot less driving for yours truly! Scenario still TBD. 

See ya (maybe for real)!
