Anyone Going to Fall-In in Lancaster?

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if any of you all were going to be going to the Fall-In wargaming convention in Lancaster PA, Nov 6th-8th?

http://www.fall-in.org

I'll be there all weekend in the Paradise room running games with the HAWKs, and Sunday I'll be in the flea market. Stop by and say 'Hi' if you're there.

I had no idea. And I can't that weekend. Boo. But now it'll be on my calendar in the future!

There's usually one out Lancaster way in March/April, yeah? I just didn't know about the Fall slot. Things to file away...

Sounds good! I hope you get a chance to stop by. Fall In is one of my favorites as it is a very low-key con.

 

If you're looking for a game or two to play in, I'd be happy to recommend some. :-)

      This is my latest terrain piece for my tabletop games, a small gorge. It's about 300 x 150 mm, and at its deepest the gorge is about 30 mm deep.

      It's not wide enough for vehicles in any scale larger than 6mm or 10-12mm. Maybe a jeep in 15mm, certainly nothing larger. There's just enough of a bend in it that you can't see right through from end to end.

      I suspect that the rock formations would make geologists clench their fists and grind their teeth, but fortunately, I'm not a geologist.

      Sooo .... who else is going to Paizocon?
      That's .. erm, May 25th to 28th - so I might be a bit late asking for some of you. ^^;
       
      I know Mr. Thorne and I will be there. Don't know what all we'll be doing exactly, but I know we'll be there.

      So here's my final for this unexpected snow day.  Three stands go to the Dux Bellorum project, which I hope to play with this weekend, and the two on the right are part of the vintage Minifigs Middle Earth war bands  project.  As the Soviets are supposed to have said, quantity has a quality of its own...

      Anyone else going up to the Cold Wars Wargaming Convention in Lancaster, PA this weekend?    
       
      I'll be in the Paradise Room (the "HAWKs' room") most of the time, so stop in and say, "hi!"  
       
      I'll be co-GMing a trio of off the wall games on Friday night and Saturday: 
      1) Santa and the Great Zeppelin Attack (Fri. 7PM)
      2) Duke Morrison and the great Zeppelin Raid (Sat 9AM)
      3)  A Lily Pad Too Far  (Sat 7PM)

      I expect this is going to be a long-running WIP thread.  My intention is to convert this heap of vintage lead into war games armies to allow me to field forces for a variety of Tolkien situations, using only vintage Minifigs.  For those who are younger than me, Minifigs produced this line of Tolkien-inspired figures starting in 1972, and, as far as we've ever been able to determine, it was the first range of specifically fantasy miniatures ever produced.  They were the first that I bought as well, and I will freely admit that this is a nostalgia project.
       
      I posted a batch of finished elves this morning.  Here's what I have left to do: two elf riders, an elf king to form a second command stand, 14 elf swordsmen, and 9 elf bowmen (three of whom have lost arrows and one who's been redone as a standard bearer for the command stand.)
       

       
      For the era of the Battle of the Five Armies, they have some dwarf allies.  Here's a dozen, representing all three stock numbers that were produced.  Each stock number was a strip of two.  I have a batch of seven already finished and based.
       

       
      Minifigs did not issue any specific Lakemen, nor, for that matter, any specific Rohirrim on foot.  For the Five Armies-era humans, I'll have to reach into the historical and use some figures from their NS (Norman/Saxon) range with round shields.  I've got about three dozen available with which to work.  They should also serve as dismounted Rohirrim when needed.
       

       
      Beorn and Gandalf are also available, and a token eagle...
       

       
      To continue with the good guys, there were two catalog numbers of actual mounted Rohirrim.  I have two completed so far, and about 22 available, including a few Later Romans or similar Dark Ages figures which blend well.  A few spare horses remain to be found.
       

       
      The Gondorians were represented by five different figures, a citadel guardsman, two rangers of Ithilien, a spearman, a swordsman, and a foot knight.  I've got at least a dozen of each, plus a total of two dozen of ME53 and 54, Rangers of the North.
       
      The Dark Lord's forces can be lead by the imposing squadron of flying Nazgul, of which I have four:

       
      I have 18 wargs (plus a few already finished), but only two of the goblin riders:
       

       
      Large orcs came in three poses, with sword, axe or spear.  I've got about 85 to be done:
       

       
      Smaller orcs came in four poses, a bowman, a swordsman without shield, a swordsman with shield, and a well equipped armored goblin with shield, spear and bow.  Of that latter, I've only got a handful, all completed.  Of the first three, I've got about seventy from a recent purchase:
       

       
      There is also one pose of little goblins.  I finished a few of them last month.  I've got more, but they are sitting in paint stripper at the moment.
       

       
      Sauron's human allies were represented by four poses of figures; there was a Haradrim spearman and a mounted lancer, of which I've got about 30 and 5 respectively:

       
      There was also a Southern spearman and a mounted swordsman.  I only have a token 3 of the spearmen, so they won't be a unit on their own, but I do have nine of the mounted swordsmen, so they can be.

       
      Last, I have a hobbit militia of about a dozen, plus a couple of mounted hobbits.  The foot hobbits came in strips of three, and one strip is much easier to find than the other...
       

       
      My basic plan is going to be to play these with Dragon Rampant, which generally uses units of six mounted or twelve foot figures, with provision for heroes and large monsters as exceptions.  However, some of the teams will be big enough that I could use Chaos Wars (also in sixes and twelves), and I expect that an actual Battle of the Five Armies game my brother and I have been discussing will take every orc/goblin that we have painted.
       
       
       
       
       
      Edit: Ooops!  Forgot the Dunlendings; there are enough of them to make a unit, and given Saruman's forces a bit of distinctiveness...
