Countdown for Crisis... Three days to go...

Crisis 2013 is the first convention where I have the pleasure and honour to be involved in preparing a game. Together with our THS club I'll bring and present our Penobscot AWI game on a large table. If you missed my post on our summer event when we played the scenario then have a look here for part 1 or here for part 2. Or have a look at the kind of official coverage of the game. It's available on our club's homepage in English or German.

Anyway I planned to finish a small vignette with the Perrys' excellent interrogation scene for this event and after painting the figures there is a first WIP shot of the scene itself:
Looks a bit like retreat 1812 before painting the ground...
Unfortunately the faces turned up very difficult for me. Most of them aren't perfect but I reached a state which I wasn't able to improve any longer so I'm satisfied more or less. Anyway my plan is to place a piece of broken fence behind the rebel officer and then of course some flock, bushes and grass around the scene after painting the ground.

But let me take this as advice to visit the THS game. We'll have our table at 3b02 in the center part of the front hall.
THS on Crisis 2013
We plan to play a couple of turns between 11.00 am and 01.00 pm and give the croud an idea of the scenario we prepared and the great game it made during our summer event. Nevertheless any participants are welcome who want to try Black Powder or just spent some time with us. And by the way that would be a chance to collect additional entries for my 50K raffle... However I would be pleased to meet the one or the other there.
