The HAWKs' Barrage XV One Day Gaming Comvention

The HAWKs(Harford Area Weekly Kriegspielers)held their annual one day regional convention "Barrage XV" last Saturday January 22, 2011. The convention was held in the cafeteria of Archbishop Curly High School in Baltimore. There was a near record turn out of gamemasters, vendors, and players and everyone had a great time.

The large Look, Sarge, No Charts: WWII game Buck and I ran. The scenario depicts a hypothetical attempt by German and Russian forces to capture a town on the outskirts of Lvov in Poland '39 as the Poles try to destroy a German battery which is shelling Lvov.

Scott Perry's Carlist War game. It was a great sight to see all these beautiful and rarely seem armies arrayed on the table
