Note that many of the Sea Peoples troops (Shekel
esh warbands) were originally from the collection of Bill McHugh. Bill was from the Los Angeles area, played enthusiastically in many of my Historicon games of the past 10 years, including my big Punic Wars game at Historicon 2018, where he commanded the Carthaginian ambush force. Sadly, he died suddenly not long after that, and his friend, Jeff Grein arranged for me to obtain his Sea Peoples (and Hittite) troops, who proudly fought to victory today. Sadly, I also recently learned that another old friend from the Historicon Piquet/FoB clan, Terry Schockley, of Denver, Colorado, has been severely ill and enduring a lengthy hospitalization. Terry, his dry wit and his dice tower were sorely missed.
A very Happy and safe Thanksgiving to all in the US! We have made much progress against COVID, but it is very much still with us and effecting our lives.
