One tank trips: Historicon wargaming convention in Lancaster PA

Pender’s Division and to the top of the photo Pickett’s left brigade under Garnett are in the midst of Pickett’s Charge at Gettysburg on July 3, 1863, in my miniature wargame I ran at Historicon this year. Note the ruins of the Bliss house and barn in the upper right center. They were burned in the morning well before the ill-fated Confederate assault and were still smoldering as the Rebel lines streamed through the farm.
The scenario was hosted by Scott Mingus at the Thursday session of the annual Historicon miniature wargaming convention in Lancaster PA. There were 13 players, and the Rebels reached the Taneytown Road before massive Union reinforcements arrived.
The convention continues through Sunday morning, with most of the gaming action on Friday and Saturday, along with a flea market and separate dealer hall.
