The annual Recruits convention in Lee's Summit, Missouri was a wonderful time. I went as a player this time around and had a great time getting in some wonderful gaming time with old friends and new acquaintances.
I have played in this GM's French and Indian war game before and I always relish the chance to push around some 54mm lead figures from Jenkin's collectibles. I played as a militia commander and was tasked with defending a small settlement from attacking Indians.
He would not live to see the next day....
That's me with the pistol. A gallant figure and he fought bravely in the game.
This time I sat astride a destrier and fought in a medieval knight melee.
Again I died valiantly and not necessarily all that epic.
Great 90mm game.
And then I drove around in a bad-ass Dodge with a machinegun mounted on the hood.
Had an epic flaming fireball of a death in this one.
Bought some old football miniatures at the flea market.
All of these and some more for $1.00
Bought a significant piece of electric football history with this acquisition. This was a private sale that was arranged after a war game acquaintance asked if I would be interested in looking at his game from his childhood.
I was very lucky to acquire this item. A prized piece in my set collection.
The 1970 Electric Super Bowl.
Chiefs vs. Vikings
Complete, near mint condition.
I played in two DBA tournaments as well but never took any photographs. I used my ancient British Book II. 57.
