For a little variety in gaming, I met with my at Cincycon, outside of Cincinnati, Ohio, this weekend. He drove in from Bloomington, Indiana, and we both spent the weekend helping to run demonstration games of the revived Ral Partha Chaos Wars mass fantasy battle game. We also had a fascinating tour of the Iron Wind Metals factory facility, source of so many of my old favorite fantasy miniatures.
Cincycon was a well-run local convention, and occupied two large halls at the local fairground. While I was preoccupied with Chaos Wars, I saw a wide variety of boardgames being played, and other miniatures games in a broad range of genres and periods, with historicals being well represented.
I would certainly recommend giving Cincycon a look if it's within your comfortable travel range!
I post a little about my ongoing projects, recent games, how I got to where I am, and where I'm going, as time away from the workbench, and a somewhat busy life, permits. I'll try to keep cooking and ballroom dance down to a minimum, but they do seem to take up a lot of time.
This is my really short, no explanation included, list of projects: 54mm Medieval Mayhem (skirmish), 40mm French and Indian War, 40mm NQSYW, 40mm French Revolution/Scarlet Pimpernel, 40mm Renaissance, 25mm Dark Ages (Saxons and Vikings), 25mm Historical Arthurian, 25mm Fantasy, 1/72 scale Bronze Age, 1/72 scale 2nd Punic War, 1/72 scale fantasy (Portable Fantasy Campaign), 6mm Ancients (travel DBA), 6mm Fantasy (travel HotT), 6mm Spanish Civil War.
