At the very end are some pictures from a few days before, of Ethan and I painting miniatures one morning.  

Enjoy! :D

Great pics!  I felt like I was watching a proof-of-concept rough cut of the Helms Deep sequence from LOTR or something!

bonk!

Awesome pictures, Allan.

It was possible to follow the course of the moathouse siege even without commentary.  Very nice.

Was that the Avalon Hill Circus Maximus game rules being used?

I've been so slow on posting the pics that I haven't posted captions yet, but I will get to them.  The travel, cold, and now water in the basement have been keeping me down, but I'll beat them all----muhahahahhahaha! :D

Looks like an awful lot of fun.  I have thoroughly enjoyed the picures posted here and on Dragonsfoot.  Badmike has expressed a lot of interest in going next year so I guess I better start making plans now since he will most likely drag me along.  :D

Yeah, though they were simplified somewhat for the event.  The miniatures were custom sculpts made by Tom Meier of Ral Partha (now Thunderbolt Mountain) fame.  The paint work on the pieces was done by some low-life whose name I can't remember . . .

I played that game solo a number of times...with my own simplified rules.

One solo rule I had...if a driver could attack another chariot or team then they were required to make all possible attacks.

It was sort of like Circus Maximus Meets Car Wars.

Great pics, Allan.  I see Ethan is a much better painter than I am.  Is he a Nittany Lions fan like his dad?   :D

LOL.  While I graduated from PSU, I'm not really a sports devotee for the most part, to the point that I only attended 1 PSU footback game while I was at school there ;)

That's too bad.  Make it to any football games though?   :lol:

People here are renting out their houses for $1000 for the weekend of the PSU - Notre Dame game Sept. 8.  It's an incredible culture!  [/b]
