Vietnam at historicon
« on: July 18, 2017, 02:18:19 PM »
Stewart .Mike, Rob and myself had a good time putting on Vietnam at historicon.
We played a total of 11 games.
Most players understood the rules. A few found it very difficult, but they were helped on by other players!
Mostly US wins I think?

Overall the show was very nice. The side rooms were pretty dark, so I idd not fully appreciate the games. My loss.
A huge 60mm WW2 game looked good and featured the Pegasus bridge. Massive.
I saw plenty of fantasy games, featuring orcs, Martian war machines and da Vinci tanks.
The flames of war games had a generous supply of tanks and vehicles all ranked up!
The chariot and football games were popular and looked like fun.
The visually impressive games were
1.28mm WW2 British tank column attacking a german tank formation. Looked spectacular.
2. 3mm Cambrai. A massive game with historical accuracy.  lots of players.
3.10mm?  massive Napoleonic Essen?  Not my area of expertise.
4. Pirate cove. In 25mm. Looked like a big big multiplayer adventure on distant islands type adventure thing. very impressive terrain
5. 30 foot 25mm ancient game. Too dark for me to see more than the outlines of a mass of units. Had great scenery.
6. Fort Dear?  25mm AWI type skirmish game.

I hope that you all managed to see all the battlefields that you were hoping to.

How was the Vietnam game received - did people enjoy it?

I'm assuming we'll see some pictures either here on the PP website once you've all recovered and sorted yourselves out?

Hello Les


saw some good battlefields.  Gettysburg, Bull run and Antietam. Lovely sunny days made it better!  Walked Pickett's charge, no casualties.
