Enfilade During The Second Wave
Making this post on Sunday while co-hosting the Imjin War naval game. Also co-hosted the Bolt Action Franco-Prussian War game on Saturday night night. I even played in an Arc of Fire Battle of Hue game and Lion Rampant game on Friday and Saturday. Busiest I've been at a convention in a long time. For the record, attendance was down by well over half the normal in previous years, and masks were worn in the gaming hall per a recent statewide mandate for indoor gatherings. I think there were about 140 attendees this year; down from about 400 at our last convention in 2019. The bring and buy was actually pretty big, and I picked up a few unnecessary things. I've tried to caption the images of games below from what I think they are from the posted game schedule; wasn't sure of some. In fact, some may not be on the schedule - as there were many free tables and folks were encouraged to set up games on the fly.
Another shot of Chris Craft's Rebels and Patriots game. Chris is great painter, but said these Front Rank figures were painted for him by someone in Scotland. He said he orders the figures to be delivered to the painter there and once done they're shipped to him here in Washington State.
At the annual meeting this morning we discussed the possibility of moving next year's Enfilade either back to the usual Memorial Day weekend or again during Labor Day weekend. The voting for the date was pretty much split - mainly based on the unpredictability of the future state of affairs. Sound like the board of directors are in for more tough decisions. Until next time, wishing you all the best in health and gaming!
