Battle of the Pelennor Fields


KublaCon 2019 Convention Report

Another KublaCon has come and gone along with a weekend full of top notch miniature gaming.The Toulon Harbor crew ready for action!I continue to be impressed with the quality of miniature gamers that show up at KublaCon.  Across the board we had great players throughout all of our games - which as a GM makes running the games much easier.Here's is what we ran:Battle of Roncevaux Pass - This is a scenario Roy Scaife put together.  28mm Napoleonic game with British, Spanish and Portuguese fighting against the French.Battle for the Forest Moon of Endor - 32mm Star Wars Bolt Action (Legion).  Dan Kerrick brought this battle to life.  Rebels have landed on the forest moon of Endor to bring down the shield generator that is protecting the orbiting Death Star.Charge of the Haradrim - 28mm Lord of the Rings SBG.  I expanded scenario covering the Mûmaks charging against the Rohan forces just after they've run through the ranks of Orcs laying siege to Minas Tirith.  I add more Riders of Ro

DundraCon 2019 Report

Escaped this past weekend for a great weekend of gaming at DundraCon 2019.  Roy Scaife, John Lantz, Dan Kerrick, and Adrian Turner joined me along in the gaming fun.  Oddly enough, we covered the gaming spectrum on this one - playing fantasy (LOTR) on Friday, Sci-fi on Saturday (Star Wars), and historical on Sunday (Napoleonic) ... no gaming discrimination here! :-)Along with the miniatures games covered below, played some great boardgames as well - Giant Killer Robots (using the new factions), Everdell, and the Expanse boardgame (after the show, which I have been binge watching).Many pictures below ... enjoy!Charge of the Mumaks!Finally got some LOTR on the frigg'in table!  Didn't get a chance to play this scenario before running it at the con so wasn't sure how it was going to play out.  As it turns out, worked out great!  The Mamuks looked really good at the start trampling lots of Rohirrum, but Rohan bounced back, isolating and swarming each Mamuk which turned out to be a winning
