I ran this game Friday afternoon. It was a good thing that I set it up well in advance, as I kept thinking it was at 6 PM!
Part of the French starting positions.
The Austtians begin their advance. They had majorn traffic control problems. I really should have used 30 - 50% fewer units!
Getting into the action!
The opposing armies close. I didn't take many pictures due to being well engaged in running the game.
It looked great, and played OK, but I would have been better to have stuck to the twice tested Austerlitz scenario.
Back home, some Russians model the vineyard pieces, created from purchases from Pastimes on the Square.
I bought very little again at Historicon this year. One booth had Lucid Eye Productions at 10% off. I had never heard of them, but they are a British company that dopes mostly fantasy stuff, but also has a nice range of Republican Romans and Macedonians. I bought 2 sets of Roman Consuls, as I never seems to have enough figures to use as Generals!
I also bought a pair of Eagle bearers to use as Army Standards for my Roman Army when playing To the Strongest! I also purchased eight D12's of various different colors, with Test of Resolve games in mind.
Historicon Special free figure - a female Ukrainian hero from WW2. I spotted these Perry Austrian High Command set and picked it up; I always seem to need more Austrian Command figures, too!
I really wanted some more Poplar trees from Battlefield Terrain Concepts, but they didn't have any. They had their usual show special - buy 12 of these trees, get 3 free. With two $12 GM vouchers in hand, the out of pocket cost for these trees was quite low!
Altogether it was a great show. Attendance seemed down modestly from 2019, but given the ongoing pandemic, that was to be expected. lots of good games and seeing friends old and new!
