Every year my wife and daughters head down to Florida for the February break. I stay in Brooklyn and work and, more importantly, play games.

This year, based on the sheer number of games I’m getting in, I’ve dubbed this tradtion JamoCon. Here’s a list of the festivities.

  • Tuesday, February 21 – Frostgrave
  • Wednesday, February 22 – Mouse Guard
  • Thursday, February 23 – Game Prep
  • Friday, February 24 – Muskets & Tomahawks
  • Saturday, February 25 – Adventures in Middle-earth
  • Sunday, February 26 – Saga, Torchbearer
  • Monday, February 27 – TBD
  • Tuesday, February 28 – Frostgrave
  • Wednesday, March 1 – Closing Ceremony

Wow! That a lot of games. I’ll try to post some updates as the week progresses

Live from the Battlefield

As we get into the year, work has picked up considerably for me. That said, I’ve been more or less sticking to my painting schedule.

Given the recent demands on my time, the five figures below didn’t get to make a stop in my tabletop light box before ending up on the tabletop battlefield at the club.

Here we have more figures from the Conquest Miniatures French and Indian War line. There’s an officer to the left. three marching soldiers in the center and an ensign on the right who, without a flag, makes a good unit commander.

The expeditious deployment to the field saw these figures routing some British regulars and colonial provincials in a Friday night game of Muskets & Tomahawks. It made for a rousing end to a long week of work.

I have six or seven more of these left to paint along with some Woodland Indians and Canadian Militia from Wargames Factory before I move on to another genre.

Until next time…
