I played in 7 games (including 5 with the Junior General). Had so much fun spending some father/son bonding over toys.
I only spent $50, well below my expectations. Paint, brushes and a can of Army Painter dip. I am still in shock from not buying any figures. I then fell off the wagon and bought a bunch of 6mm sci fi figures on the last day of the month.
A few pictures from the convention before my usual painting/gaming/spending diary entry:
|DAK and Dragons...GM ran 9 games over the convention; we played in 3.|
|Fantastic table with the catacombs.|
|Italian Armor vs Troll|
|Panzer Mk III killing the Red Dragon|
|Noah leading some cavalry at the Battle of Ravenna|
|My kind of charge|
|Feel bad for those horses|
|2nd game on the same layout|
|Pacific Island invasion with LSNC:WW2|
|Peter Anderson's FOB Battle of Raab|
|Turned the enemy flank and brought the game to a victory for the French in the end|
|Kudo's to our CiC, Luke, for pressing the enemy center...twice.|
|Operation Battleaxe in North Africa using 3mm PicoArmor.|
|My British 6th RTR were about to have a hard day. The unit bases are color coded to the dice...very nice.|
|Germans in the distance on Hill 208.|
|Junior General giving me "the look" for this picture I sent to the Countessa.|
14 x 12 figure Katzenstein 15mm units: 168 pts
Total: 168 points
|14 new regiments for the Kingdom of Katzenstein|
7 (all at Historicon)
|Junior General and a friend playing Field of Battle in my basement|
$50 at Historicon, $144 on 6mm sci fi = $194
$1228 for the year. $228 over budget...not good.
plus $1000 total expenses at Historicon with the hotel, gas/tolls, and food.
Budget: <$1000 plus Historicon expenses.
