I had never attended a gaming convention before this weekend's Historicon 2012. I almost attended last year, but with the new venue only 30 miles from where I live this year I had no reason not to attend. I decided to try to experience the full range of the event, from participating in games to hosting a demo event for Dystopian Wars. With loaned models and help from local DW players we provided a basic run through of the game for 2 sets of 4 players, and plenty of others stopped by Saturday morning just to see what was going on and pick up some flyers.
Later that day I spotted some familiar models incorporated into a scratchbuilt model of an airship for a Victorian Martian scenario. Great stuff all around.
