Pro or Con convention Dearborn, MI October 2010

Our club sponsors two conventions each year in Dearborn, Michigan. In the fall we host Pro or Con followed by Battlefields in the Spring. This year was my first Pro or Con and I have to say it was a great success. Several hundred gaming enthusiasts participated in two days of gaming with a robust flea market and vendor area.

This year the convention spanned several rooms providing both the general convention area as well as a dedicated gaming room. Club members rotated staffing the door and assisting convention attendees while squeezing in some gaming time in between.

Double blind WW2 naval action with food available for sale behind.

Flea market area with some smaller gaming tables available as well. I picked up variety of great things at the flea market including several hundred Ral Partha 25mm colonials, Imperial Guard for Warhammer 40K, and some WW1 Brits for skirmishing.

Flames of War game in action.

Battletech game in the games room.

World War 2 skirmish action.

Brad's 54mm AWI skirmish using Songs of Drums and Shakos.

Snakes eyes! Curse the dice gods!

Chuck's 6mm Arab Israeli war game.

Here come the tanks!

Ray's beautiful TSATF Sudan game. Look out behind you, the Mahdists are flanking.

They are coming from all directions!

This picture of the Fuzzy Wuzzies is a bit fuzzy itself.

The French Foreign Legion defends an outpost in this 1/72 scale game.

I was able to play in this excellent 25mm Vietnam game. Firebase Gloria came under attack by Charlie during the night. Communication amongst our squads was limited to 5 second radio excerpts. Our boys fought hard but were overrun before we could order up some proper air support.

The left flank has been breached!

Finally, a quick picture of a Wings of War game.

Thank you for looking!
