Fix Bayonets 2015 Game Day Review

(Image from Red Headed T-Shirts)
This past Saturday marked the Fifth Annual Fix Bayonets Game Day at Fort Steilacoom.

Player entry fees went to the fort's historic fund.

I was in between work shifts, so I only had time to do my usual fly-by and say hi to some of my gaming friends.

I missed the morning game period but took some pictures of the three afternoon game sessions.

1. The Last Train to Krasnoyark, a Colonial Adventure scenario in 15mm (figure scale).

2. Rhodesia '76 in 20mm.

3. An All Quiet on the Martian Front encounter.

(A Mk-II Baldwin Steam Tank gets brewed-up by a Martian heat ray)

And of course, no gathering of gamers, no matter how big or small, would be complete without a Bring and Buy.

Everyone enjoyed themselves and hope to see Fix Bayonets continue as an annual September-ish event.

See you next year!
