Tacticon 2014

Another year at Tacticon has come and gone.  Saturday I popped in to see how things were going.  I visited the vendor area and saw the historical miniatures games.  The convention was not that busy, but the games were well attended.

I didn't buy much in the vendor area, but was surprised to see that the previous owner of JR Miniatures has started up another company selling terrain/buildings.  Their main focus is 15mm and 28mm WWII.  It looks great, but I am not into either of those scales in WWII.  Their web site is  They have some very good designs.

It was a little disappointing to see so little historical miniature games at the convention, but as I said, the games were well attended.  So I guess it is better than having no one show up to your game because there are too many games.  I ran my Raid on Black Rock, War of 1812, 28mm skirmish game on the Sunday.  It went very well.
