I pretty much just check out the Historical miniature games and the vendor area. The vendor area is really lacking anything historical wargaming, which is unfortunate. I did pick up a number of dice from Chessex that have various flags/symbols on the one on each die (Japanese, American, British, National symbol of Republic of China, and a celtic cross). These should come in handy for future games.
The historical games this morning looked pretty good. Attendance looked strong around each game. I was surprised to see eight people playing in the American Civil War game. I could never run an eight player miniatures game at a convention, but it looks like they were all having fun.
Below are pictures from the convention this morning.
