Some Cold Wars games cancelled.......

To All,
Around Christmas I ruptured my Achilles tendon and had to have surgery. As the convention was approaching I had full intention, with the help of my son, on running my full docket of games. Unfortunately my son has a prior commitment and physically I can’t haul in the bins, set up the board, run a 4 hour game, pack up the terrain and figures, and re-pack the car on one leg. So I have to cancel these two games:

F-314 - Gnome Wars: ....just not the slowest.
Fri. 8:00 PM, 3 hrs, 30 players
GM: Steven Stanton and Stout Gnomes
Prize: GNOMES!
Fantasy 28mm, Rules: Gnome Wars
S-316 - Gnome Wars: The Battle of West Point -
April 16th, 1865 - Theme Game
Sat. 2:00 PM, 4 hrs, 8 players
GM: Jim Stanton and Stout Gnomes
Prize: GNOMES!
American Civil War 28mm, Rules: Gnome Wars

I will still be running the joust:

S-315 - Gnome Wars: The Joust
Sat. 8:00 PM, 2 hrs, 30 players
GM: Steven Stanton and Stout Gnomes
Prize: GNOMES!
Fantasy 28mm, Rules: Gnome Wars
Gnome Jousting Tournament. Rules Taught - quick, easy, FUN!
No one under 14 without a playing adult.

Sorry about this, but it is what it is. You will see me limping around the convention.

To All,
I'm back from the edge oblivion.        

I cleaned my basement last weekend and I’m ready to resume all aspects of the hobby, including a Gnome Wars update. But more on that later……

I’m writing to inform everyone of a great KickStarter by some guys who are Gnome Wars veterans affectionately referred to as ‘The Canadians.”  Instead of having me describing it, check it out.

Gnome Wars: Saturday afternoon at Fall In..

To All,

Here are some shots of the Saturday afternoon game at Fall In.

The Swiss and the Irish try to hold the buildings....
 ...and the defenders said, "Let them come." Which they did....
 Prince Stiofan making his move...
 ...while the Bengal Tigers make a charge. (Yes, those are painted as the Cincinnati Bengals)

Rainbow connection...the lovers, the dreamers, and, la la la la

The Defenders get the victory.

Gnome Wars: The Joust @ Fall In! last weekend....

To All,

Just some shots from the joust that my son ran at Fall In this past weekend. There just a few pictures as the action was intense. A newcomer won the double elimination tournament this year. I was knocked from my chicken!

Sam-I-Am, a veteran of the joust and all things Gnome Wars takes on a newcomer...

 ...action from another table.

A Samurai and Bunny Cavalry meet at the rail.

That is a handsome man figuring out the 25 player bracket.

I get knocked off my mount, Pancake the Chicken, by a dame! I was disgusted and left my figure there so all could see my shame.

A close-up of my large ___________.... (fill in your own word you dirty bird).

More to come from the weekend......
