Hello all,
I wanted to let people know that I will be running a game at Fall-in using my collection of Pendraken miniatures. The scenario that I will be using is based on Hookers early morning attack on the confederate positions in and around the Cornfield during the Battle of Antietam. The game will have around 1500 figures, 50ft of rail fence, and a couple square feet of corn. Pre registration for fall-in open’s this Friday (September 14th).  Fall-in is held on November 2-4 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA. My game has six spots and will be run on Saturday Nov 3rd. If you’re in the area, I would love to have you join my game. I will post more info once the preliminary event list is published. Please see my blog for photos of past games that I have run: http://btsherman.6sided.net/

Thanks
Bryan

My troops are packed and ready to go. I will be heading down to Fall-In after work tomorrow.  I still have a few slots available for my game, so if you’re interested you can register to play when you get to the con or just stop by and say hi. Here’s a preview photo of my game.

Hello everyone,
The game went very well. The overall attendance for the CON seemed to be way down probably due to Super Storm Sandy. My game had a total of five players. The Confederates conceded defeated after turn 7 (game length was 8 turns).  I received many positive comments about the quality of the game and even about the rules I was using. Rothgar68 stopped by to check out the game.  It was very nice meeting another 10mm/Pendraken nut. I’m not sure if I was able to convert anyone over to the scale, but I did get several comments about how they wished they had gone with 10’s instead of 15mm figures.

Thanks to how well this game went, I’m already thinking about what I’m going to run at Cold Wars in March. I’m 99% sure that the battle will be the first day of Gettysburg.

Well done Bryan!

I am sure Day one of Gettysburg is a good choice - but think of all those dismounted cavalry!   Shocked Shocked Shocked Wink

The scenario I was looking at only had two regiments of cavalry.
