Loot from MillenniumCon

As always, part of the fun of going to a game convention is getting stuff: Buying new products, receiving prizes for playing in games, and scoring bargains at the flea market. MillenniumCon was no different:

For playing an introductory game of Frostgrave, I received these playing aids, a couple of figures, and some terrain. More importantly, I met some local players who have a weekly game at Dragon's Lair:

From a vendor with tables stacked high with old Citadel Minis, I tracked down some additions to my Oldhammer skellies and some Halfling mercenaries to join my Bretonnians:

At Ed the THW Guy's table, I bought a couple of rules to try out, and for inspiration in my own designs:

At the flea market on Sunday, I couldn't resist this Star Wars diecast spaceship for one buck:

Also at the flea market, I found some more Bretonnians for my Oldhammer project, as well as Kings of War (and other games):
The same guy also had some movement trays, templates, and tokens:

Finally, another flea market vendor had some Warhammer 5th edition sourcebooks, which will provide inspiration:

Lots to keep me busy over the next few months.



Nice haul! How's Frostgrave? Worth picking up?

A very impressive haul, especially for a small convention!

Blackstar, Frostgrave is a good game that plays fairly quickly and allows you to customize your warband using any minis you want. I have played just two games, but I like it.

Gonsalvo, for a relatively small convention, MillCon gets a lot of vendors. But my favorite is the flea market.

Those Warhammer 5th Ed books were the best by far. The Undead and High Elves books were some of my first GW purchases.
