I went last weekend to a great gaming convention in Des Moines, Iowa. I had nothing less than an awesome time, and regretted that I had to miss the Sunday morning set because I had to get back to Kansas City to work.
Fields of Honor is run by a great group of people and is filled with friendly enthusiastic gamers, and great games to be played. Featuring a good mix of historical and fantasy miniature games, with RPG and board games also.
Friday night, "Approach to Arnhem", double blind. 15mm, WWII rules by Trent Burg.
Saturday mornings game "Inn of the Crescent Moon". 28mm fantasy, rules by Ryan Skow.
The Crescent Moon Inn and Songhouse is being looted and monsters
are on the loose! You will control a single hero with the goal of securing as much treasure you can. You can choose to work with the
other heroes or face the monsters and traps alone - keeping the treasure
all to yourself!
This was an amazing piece of work! Six highly detailed levels. I must have took 50 pictures.
Saturday midday "Rhodesia-Operation Uric" 28mm "Force on Force" rules terrain by Ryan Skow
1979 near Gaza, Mozambique. The Rhodesian forces have been deployed to
neutralize a training camp which serves as a major gateway for ZANLA
guerrillas into Rhodesia.
Saturday eve was "Commandos to the Rescue" 28mm rules by Trent Burg.
July 1944, a french resistance leader has managed to get himself
captured. British commando's are sent to rescue him before he spills
his guts to the Gestapo.
Sunday,I would have liked to played in Jeff Hyland's Lots of Gauls" a 15 mm "Hail Ceasar" rules, but I had to get back in time to work that evening. Next time I'll take more time off. There were many more great games as well as a silent auction.
