So they had setup a TSAF table that had back to back games all convention long. This is similar to Recruits on how they setup the Dealers all around the tables along the walls. Great job by the HMGS South staff.
Dwight Jones put on two TSAF scenarios in Darkest Africa called, "The Village" and "The Mine." Both were a blast to play. I played in The Mine where I had to personally had to kill a rampaging Elephant with Spear and Knife (Damn TSIA Action Deck). That could have gone bad. Dwight's games always look great and using The Sword in Africa he incorporates those sometimes evil random events. Fun!
Mike Lucas and Bernie Chambers put on a TSAF scenario called, "With Lawerence at Shahm." That had the Turks and Germans fighting the British and Arabs. I was stuck with leading some Turks on the left flank. Held on pretty well but the inevitable happened. Both of our flanks were ready to collapse with Arab Cavalry pouring in on one flank and the Brits on the other. Nice game and the figures painted by Bernie were beautiful!
Bill Hogan put on a very nice scenario of "San Juan Hill." It looked great and unfortunately I didn't get to play in that one. All of these games were maxed out on players which is great to see. I really wanted to play in this one because I don't get to play enough Colonial battles when U.S. Forces are involved. When I checked in it looked like the Spanish were not doing half bad. Nice! We didn't get many pictures of this game so I apologize.
There were many other battles and if you look at the PEL you can see that. You will find the pictures below that Jeff, Mike and I took.
So Thanks to all that played in these games and to those that purchased just about every boat I brought. I really appreciate it. Let's keep in touch! Enjoy the pictures.

Standby, I will get Jeff's, The Raid and my Nile battle posted soon.
