Historicon 2013

Yeah, I know Historicon 2012 was only a few weeks ago, but with 2013's theme being 'The Scots at War', I knew I had to get my creative partner stateside again. Barry Hilton and I have decided to attend next year's convention to promote Beneath the Lily Banners, our first scenario book (which should be out by next summer), and Warfare Miniatures. We will be presenting the Battle of Killiecrankie!

I'm going to build a new 6x8' table for the action and of course I'll be documenting the whole process. The terrain boards will be for sale as well (I have more than enough terrain for my own use), with a buyer taking ownership at the end of the convention. In addition to conducting a detailed terrain building series, I'll be presenting detailed orders of battle, uniform and flag guides for the battle, WIP photos of the model units, and generally write about adapting history to make a good game. I am thinking of setting up a blog dedicated solely to this project (but of course, I'll still have plenty of news here as well).

Anyway, I'm looking forward to the project and making another trip to Historicon!
