MillenniumCon XX. In addition to my Ogre scenario, The Siege of Steelville (minis, modular 3-D terrain, strategic nuclear weapons), there are nearly a hundred other games taking place at the convention (November 10-12). Right now there are still open slots in my game Saturday afternoon, and even if you don't preregister, you have a pretty good chance of getting a seat. Or if you don't feel like playing, just come by and say hi.

MillenniumCon in Round Rock, Texas (Nov. 10-12). In the spirit of the convention's theme marking the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Stalingrad, my Monopolis scenario for Ogre/GEV has been reskinned as The Siege of Steelville. From the event description:
In the 22nd century, the Millennium Realm’s powersuited soldiers and armored cybertanks surge east to conquer the city of Steelville. Defiantly, the Collective Council’s outnumbered troops and Ogres race to defend the workers’ metropolis on the banks of the Long River. This is a custom sci-fi tank combat scenario using Ogre Designer’s Edition rules and official Ogre miniatures (along with some original units) on a large hex mat with 3-D terrain. With room for up to 10 players, you and your friends can defend the besieged city--or you can conquer it. Fight in the Siege of Steelville!
I'm looking forward to running this scenario. In addition to the official units, I will have a few custom pieces on the board, such as my Ground Effect Ogre, armored boats, UAVs, and emergency response vehicles.
I have room for 10 players, and I've tweaked my map a little so that combat begins sooner. Here's a shot of the work in progress:
There are still plenty of seats available for my game on Saturday afternoon, so sign up if you're attending the convention and you want to get in on a big game of Ogre. If it does fill up and you really want to play, I will try to squeeze you in. Hope to see y'all at the convention!

I cobbled together some additional Monopolis terrain for my Ogre game at MillenniumCon. I'm particularly happy with the radio tower, which started out as the Eiffel Tower from a Toobs package.
Less than a month to go till the convention. Hope to see some of y'all there.
