My younger son is defending his doctoral dissertation today. My older son and I are camped out with my parents nearby so that we can be there in person for the celebration. 
 

We played a DBA game with the portable gear this morning while waiting, Mayans against Chicemec city-states.

Okay, we need to start an Edgar thread!

 

While I appreciate the sentiment, maybe not specifically Edgar, but a Cats Involved with Games thread might be fun. 🙂

I'm going to assume congratulations are in order!

Yes.  They don’t defend until everyone agrees it’s time, so it was in the nature of a planned celbration rather than a trial by combat. 😄

We’re waiting on the guest of honor today, so elder son and I played a fairly quick game with his 19th century imagi-nations figures, over a combination of portable scenery and more old toys, this time from an ancient Playskool village blocks set.

My son and his wife were up for a visit this weekend, so we managed to squeeze in a few quick games.  We played Dan Mersey’s Dux Bellorum on Saturday, using an eclectic mix of figures, Saxons versus the Romano-British:

We had time for some DBA on Sunday.  We dug out the 2nd Punic War collection, and had Romans against Carthaginians in the first game, and Romans against Gauls in the second:

Next weekend we are scheduled to return to our roots, as it were, with a game of 40mm Not Quite Seven Years War.

I am a week late in posting this, but Norman and I had the planned game on Sunday, the 19th, squeezing ~400 40mm figures onto the table for a game of Charge! (1968) in the ongoing Not Quite Seven Years War.

The HAWKs, the miniatures club I’m in, had our 25th annual convention this past weekend.  We’re up to 2 days and somewhat over 200 attendees now.

 

I ran my signature game, 40mm imagi-nations using Brigadier peter Young’s Charge! rules, from 1967.

My son, second from the left in the first photo 9where he’s assisting me with the Charge game) also ran a 12th century BC Egyptian/Sea Peoples battle using our combined Bronze Age 1/72 scale collections.

What are the hexagonal markers and how do they function?

 

We use them for hit counters; while they occasionally get disoriented, the side up against the unit reads the result; so the forward cavalry unit has four hits, and the rear has (slighly disoriented) one.

 

I got them from Litko, where they were briefly offered as an experiment.
