I didn’t get much of a chance when I got back from Historicon to show how our tables fared the trip to Valley Forge, but here they are. First is the Golan Heights/Valley of Tears board:

Now a few shots from the Bala Baluk board from Afghanistan. This is Scenario 13 in the new Operation Enduring Freedom book for Force on Force.

We had to mount the trees on washers for transport. Our original plan was to insert them directly into the boards, but this proved impossible given the space limitations of the family mini-van.

Another view, along with some USMC rescuers...

Overall, we ran both games Thursday-Saturday in the Dealer Hall and ran 50+ through the scenarios. We had lots of interest and went back to our hotel exhausted, but happy, each night. Our return drive of 13 hours went uneventfully and the boards returned home intact. In fact, we only suffered one minor ding in transport that was quickly fixed with flock. On the miniatures side, two vehicle machine guns were casualties and both were easily repaired in minutes, so I judge Historicon to be a bloodless victory for our demo team!
