AWI Action at Fall-In

This is the first post for my new blog documenting my favorite hobby - Historical Miniature Wargaming.  We're starting out with a look at the recent HMGS Convention, Fall-In, held in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

The first Lard Days at Fall-In was held this past 3-5 November with 15 TooFATLardies games scheduled over Friday and Saturday.

Here are some photos from the AWI Sharp Practice game my son and I ran, "We Fight, Get Beat, Rise and Fight Again".  This was a fictional encounter set in the southern theater of the AWI.
