Historicon 2013: Registered today!

Alamo 28mm Kids' Game by Bob Burnham.  My son's minis are on the left. (1)

      So I registered today for Historicon 2013 in Fredericksburg, VA.  Last year was a blast.  The "flea market" and vendors are great.  I still haven't painted all the minis I bought, but that doesn't mean I won't buy more.  I will.

      Took the boys and a friend last year and they played Bob Burnham's 28mm Alamo Siege.  The game was run well and unfortunately it doesn't appear that Bob is scheduled to run a game this year.  I did sign the boys up for Wargame 101 which appears to be a WWII armor tutorial and we will also play Cog Wars:  Dark Ages, and the 1763 Battle of Bushy Run.  What does this mean? It means I have to paint my Saxon Fyrd and Warband, build a kogge/knarr and my younger son needs to finish his Provincial Rangers.  Lots of painting to do before the convention...why does this always seem to happen?
