At Long Last, An Actual Gaming Post!

Just got back from the annual big historical gaming con here in the Pacific NW - Enfilade! I left after the Saturday morning period, and the con goes on until tomorrow (Sunday) afternoon. I ran a First St Albans Lion Rampant game on Friday afternoon (image below).
Here are some of just a handful of the other games going on during the Friday afternoon and evening, as well as Saturday morning periods.
Watling Street by Alyssa Faden - Bear Yourselves Valiantly
Will Ragnarok Never Come by Damond Crump and Bruce Smith - Dragon Rampant
Primordial Stew by Mike Garcia - Tusk
Khalkyn Gol Manchukuo 1939 by Bruce Meyer - Combat

Hochkirch 1758 by Kevin Burke - Shako SYW Variant

Nile Circus by Mark Johanson - TSATF
Trafalgar 1805 by Dave Kapaun - Sails of Glory
For Parliament or King by Gary Williams - home grown rules
Lutzen 1631 by Kevin Burke - Europe's Tragedy published by DBA 3.0 adaptation
Java 1942 by Victor Pecka - Bolt Action. I played in this game on the side of the winning Japanese forces.
Guagamela 331 B.C. by Dave Beatty - Armati 2
Channel Dash - Air Attack by Kevin Smyth and Dave Shueler - Mustangs (modified)
Second Martian Invasion Begins by Daryl Nichols - All Quiet on the Martian Front
Samurai Japan vs. Korea 1592 by Rick Stevens, White Rock Gamers - Armati 2
Again these are from just a handful of the over 120 games going on over the Memorial Day Weekend at Enfilade! I'm sure they'll be a lot of images posted on the Northwest Historical Miniatures Gaming Society (NHMGS) FaceBook later on - which will include the games held on Saturday afternoon and evening, as well as Sunday's games.

    1. Thanks, Ted! I'm sure yours will outclass mine - for some reason, all of my pics were a bit fuzzy. Well it was just a camera phone anyway. Yes, it was great to see you at the con. Regards, Dean

    1. Thank you very much, Jason! Yes, the St Albans game was very enjoyable - the five players: 3 Yorkists and 2 "Royalists" - had a great time. The rest of the games at the con were equally fun by all appearances. Best, Dean

  15. Some wonderful games there, Dean. Enfilade seems to be a great event.

    Walt mentioned to me how much he enjoyed the con along with the rest of the North Shore Gamers crew, not to mention gloating over the booty he acquired there!

    1. Glad you liked the images, Robert. Was that Walt M. - if so, he played in my St Albans game. We also played a Bolt Action game together on Saturday. Great guy. I think he may have bought my Russian Naps too! :) Warm regards, Dean

      Delete
  16. That's the same Walt!

    He spoke well of both games, and was clearly chuffed at picking up those Russkis. Next time I'm back in Vancouver I'll hopefully have the chance to see them in action.

    1. I knew about your B.C. roots, Robert, but this really ties the community together. Awesome! It'd be great if you could time your visit/return for an Enfilade.

  17. Lovely selection of games and well presented. Do you recall/know anything about the mat used in the Guagamela game? Hippy tie dyed vibe, I like it.

    1. Thanks, Dave. I think the mat is fleece from Joann's. Best, Dean
