I did win the award for the best miniatures game at Texicon one year with a Mission St. Mary game. The following years I was beat out by a 54mm American War of Independence game and the year after that a 10mm Napoleonics game. One of the years before I won, the award was won by a WWII game using Nuts!
i think I ran a Colonial game 3 years in a row. I have also run RRtK, RRtK:Historicals, Red Sun Black Moon and All Things Zombie: Evolution at conventions.
This sounds too boastful - I've been gaming with miniatures off and on for 30 years & when you've done it that long, you win an award here & there & you get brave enough to run a game for others to enjoy at a local convention. So, realize I've been collecting these things for a long time.
