Veterans Wars Convention 2017

Our club just had its annual Fall convention "Veterans Wars."  I will go out on a limb and call it our best yet.

I ran my Vietnam War Battle of Kontum game at the convention.  It went better than the playtesting I did.  Rules were Cold War Commander with 10mm figures.  I can add more detail about the battle of there is interest.

Here are some pictures from the convention:
