COLD WARS! Lancaster Host Resort, Lancaster, PA, 14 - 17 March 2019 

Hungarian Revolution the Second, Temesvar

Our first Hungarian Revolution game had lots of great feedback, not to mention 3000 figures. So for Cold Wars we are going for a larger battle with even more troops on the table. Once again it's the Austro-Russians slugging it out with the Hungarian Insurrection Honved at Temesvar, the final big battle of the war. A playtest of our last Age of Valor digital expansion module for Age of Eagles (Napoleonic Fire & Fury). A large but fun battle with rockets exploding on their launch pads and all the Hungarian Hussars on the planet in attendance. Thick skins always a plus.

FALL IN! Lancaster Host Resort, Lancaster, PA, 3 - 6 November 2016
Bayonet vs Needlegun Redux – the Battle for Skalitz, 1866 
Its 28 June 1866 - again. Prussian General Steinmetz’s V Korps is on the march while Austrian FML Leopold’s VIII Korps has been ordered to withdraw in front of him. Problem was, the Austrians didn’t, and the resulting battle had all the carnage and glory (ahem) one might expect when the Kaiser’s  cold steel gets down with the Needlegun. Colorful, fast, easy to learn and lots of fun. Thick skinned folks only. This is an Historicon encore.
Rules: Age of Valor (AOE II Expansion - Age of Rifles European Fire & Fury)
Players: 8
Length: 5 hours
Day and Time: Saturday 9:00 am, as always we will be in the Carnage & Glory Room with John Snead and the lads.
