2015 saw the return of the Atlanta Toy Soldier show! 2014's show was snowed out. It was good to see the local crowd again. We had all our offerings up for grabs, as usual.
Fellow vendor Tim Green brought a bunch of painted ATKM figures, and converted figures using ATKM parts. His lovely work was on sale as well. I liked his stuff so much, I took more picture of his booth than mine.
GM extraordinaire Bob L was at it again at Fall In 2014. He ran a 4-player ATKM game simply entitled "1781." It pitted Patriot versus Hessian and Loyalists forces in a battle that came down to one unit winning or losing the game for either side. I'm told the British were poised to win until the Beer Break card snatched victory away and saved the Patriot cause. Thanks to Bob for hosting yet another amazing game.
ATKM was at Hurricon 2014. The two HMGS South shows are my favorites each year. A great group of folks, and a fun time all round. There were several ATKM events this time. Shown here is the Battle of Brier Creek, 1779, which I ran for some ATKM veterans Friday night. Defying history, the Americans won this time.
Good friend and supporter Rick V was on hand and ran his War of 1812 Chippawa and Lundy's Lane games Friday and Saturday. His table was full each time, with figures, terrain, and players!
Saturday night is the traditional ATKM "Big Game" where players bring their own painted AWI armies, or borrow troops as needed. This one really lived up to its name -- 12 players on a 6 foot x 24 foot table. This game is always a spectacle.
Each player had 6 units of troops, so that's 72 units in total. How many figures is that? The world will never know for sure given troop assortments, but it's somewhere between 700 and 800. The British won this time, IIRC putting them ahead in the history of all these battles. Buddy Jamie and I co-GMed this game, and as ref you never stop moving or talking.
Historicon 2014 has come and gone. While I couldn't be there as ATKM, buddies and ambassadors Bob and Matt Lehman were there in spades. They ran a massive 54mm Napoleonics game set in the Peninsula.
The Lehmans always put on amazing games, and this one was no exception. Bob built all the terrain and painted all the troops. Figures are largely ATKM with some plastic as well. Thanks for running this game, gents!
Not to be out-done, ATKM envoy Steve Miller hosted a few games recently at Texicon. Steve's AWI collection and terrain is amazing, as you can see.
He introduced the game to a few new players. I mean, who wouldn't want to play this? Most figures are ATKM with some plastics thrown in to boot.
Webb P ran this awesome Cowpens game way back in April at Recon in Florida. He used ATKM figures and rules.
Adrian B ran this Muskets & Tomahawks game at Total Con using ATKM terrain.
Ed Y ran this Seven Years War game using 28mm figures back at Chimaera Con in Texas. He used the ATKM rules unchanged, which just goes to show the rules lend themselves to various scales.
Nashcon 2014 was last weekend, and ATKM was there running mucho games. We had a table all weekend long dedicated to Wooden Wars, the line of wood flats by Skull & Crown. There were several games played. Here you get to see friends Dave and Mike duking it out... with rubber balls. These guys played till the last man standing, human and wooden.
Friend and great ATKM supporter Rick V was back at the show, where he ran the War of 1812 battles of Chippawa and Lundy's Lane on Friday and Saturday nights, respectively. I'd guess he had close to 10 players in total across both games, all of whom were having a blast. Thanks, Rick!
Last but not least, buddy Mike and I got in our customary ATKM grudge match. We played using Wooden Wars figures and had 8 units each, Napoleonic allies against Napoleonic French. I'm not gonna lie. There may have been some libations involved. At first it looked like I had Mike on the ropes. Then he had me in a tight spot. It ended with Mike's cavalry staging a decisive charge that could have won him the game, except it cost him the game when my infantry stood its ground. Another awesome Mike versus Ken Game!
Recon 2014 in Orlando, FL, was held recently. This con is proof that I should stay away from shows more often. There were no less than three ATKM games run, and still more using ATKM figures. My Florida family really came through running games when I couldn't make the show, and I owe them all a huge thanks. In this case, Webb P ran Cowpens for 7(!) players, and an independent "invitational" game was held Saturday night. The above are among the very few pics I have of either event. Thanks Webb, Edgar and Steve for spearheading these.
I do have several pics of Carlos W's game, loosely titled "Capture Ken's Beer." Apparently the dastardly British were after my ale supplies, and the Patriots tried to get a wagon in to rescue them... oh, along with some inconsequential guns and ammo.
This was a 4-player event that was also full -- and looks just terrific! Thanks, Carlos!
These few shots are from games using the Captains and Kings rules, composed by Boyd, Charlie and their crew. Word has it several sessions were run using ATKM figures and in some cases terrain. Once again, an awesome looking setup. Man, I wish I could have been there to see it, but my very presence would have ruined it all.
Another Cold Wars has come and gone, and ATKM was there! This was more of a lowkey show, with toy soldiers discussed, and Wooden Wars demo games run at the booth. But we didn't host or play in any megalomaniacal 54mm games this time. Sometimes you just have to take a breather. It was a great show all the same, with lots of fun had by all.
ATKM was at MillenniumCon 2013 in Round Rock, Texas. Man, what a busy show for toy soldiers! We set up our booth and ran some demo games, but also had the pleasure of seeing and participating in some great ATKM games. Here you see the booth and the ACW demos we hosted.
Wooden Wars is a new figure line and game we have begun to carry. It's not live on our site as of this posting, but will be soon -- as soon as the line itself goes live on the creator's site at Skull & Crown. These are some attractive flats that make a great father-son project. We got in a few demo games at Mcon.
Great ATKM supporters Ed and Ray ran a Seven Years War game in 28mm using the ATKM rules. It was a sharp game with some beautiful figures. The guys ran the rules without changing a thing for scale, and it played fine.
Ambassador of 54mm, Steve Miller brought out his American Revolution collection and set up a beautiful table. Steve's games are always amazing, as you can glimpse here.
The biggest treat of the show for me was the Big Game, a gathering of ATKM friends who brought their own AWI figures if they could. There were 6 players and I as GM, with figures from myself, Steve Miller and Rod F.
The battle was officially fought till one side was reduced to half strength, but each player also had an objective that could add "points" back to their side's total at the end. In this case, it was a close British victory.
Hurricon 2013 has come and gone, andATKM was there in full force. We had all our wares available, including the new Napoleonic French cavalry, split-rail fences, and some other items I have yet to officially announce (tease)!
We ran ACW games all weekend, of which a good half-dozen were played. There was also a Command & Colors game hosted by Paul M. using 54mm figures, ATKM troops included.
What Florida convention would be complete without the traditional Saturday night Big Game? This one was the biggest yet, with 14 players. It was almost 24 feet long and featured 84 units in total. That's insanely big!
The game also featured a couple new elements: No more than 2 card flips per side before the other side got a free activation, and personal objectives assigned to each player that increased their sides' points at the end of the game. The game lasted two turns, with a grueling first turn where the Beer Break was at the bottom of the deck. It was yet another American victory, with a good time had by all. Special thanks to Jamie P. for helping me GM this spectacle.
Bayou Wars in New Orleans, LA was held the weekend of June 8. ATKM was there, running our booth and hosting ACW demo games all weekend long. Several games were played over the course of two days, with some demo battles downright nasty. Even yours truly got to play!
BW is a small, regional show, but the attendees are tight-knit and put on a bunch of cool looking games. A good time was had by all!
Nashcon 2013 was this past Memorial Day weekend, and All the King's Men was there. Another great show in the US Southeast! Attendance was up considerably from years past -- almost 400 people. Vendors were also much more numerous. Congrats to the organizers, and thanks to all the folks who made us feel at home.
We offered all our wares, and had a dedicated demo table for the weekend. Numerous ACW battles were fought using our rules revisions for the period. Buddies Mike and Bob also fought it out several times.
As you might expect, infantry was the workhorse on the field, with artillery delivering a punch to soften up enemy forces. Cavalry was in the skirmisher style rather than the shock weapon of earlier eras, and required a deft hand to use effectively in guerilla warfare. We had a great time!
The Atlanta Toy Soldier Show 2013 has already come and gone. ATKM was there, selling our wares and talking toy soldiers.
Our new ACW troops were a big success! Also on display were lovely painted figures by buddy Tim Green, who also had some of his own ATKM conversions on sale. There's no gaming at this show, but it's fun to just to shoot the &%$& about the hobby.
In January 2013, ATKM attended Siege of Augusta, in Augusta, GA. We got a massive table and ran games all day on the Saturday of the show. The battles fought were AWI, with my collection for the period, but ATKM supporter Rick C did bring some of his own troops to field!
I also brought our ACW painted samples (at least those done at the time) for display. They got plenty of oohs and ahhs. It was a fun show with a great bunch of guys.
The ATKM booth at Hurricon 2012
As usual, we played a heap of demo games at the show. I think it was about a dozen... I lost count.
One of the highlights of every HMGS South show is the Saturday night invitational "Big Game." This year's was a zinger. Not only was it the largest Big Game at South with 10 players, but there was a dramatic finish.
It looked like the British had a lock on things, especially after a really healthy run on red cards late in the game. The Americans needed to lose one more unit to lose the game, and the American players were talking of widespread retreat. But then something happened. Someone mumbled something about seeing Mel Gibson running across the table, because in the space of minutes the British lost one, then two, then four units to even things up. And guess who lost the game by losing one more unit on the British side... me! It was a pure spectacle, with many players bringing their own painted troops. I swear, the last 20 minutes were spent with everyone on their feet.
There was yet more at Hurricon 2012, though. Charlie and Boyd ran their forthcoming "Captains and Kings" game using ATKM figures. I didn't get a chance to watch much of the game, but it looked terrific, and all the players seemed to have fun.
Historicon 2012 has come and gone, and ATKM was there! It was a great show, meeting old friends over toy soldiers, drinking beers, and the odd cigar here and there. Here are some shots of the ATKM booth.
Good friend Bob Lehman "made a spectacle of himself" once again at Historicon with this Battle of Chippawa game hosted on Friday afternoon. What a great table! Goes to show how whirlwind thease shows are -- I don't recall if the British or Americans won, but I know all players had a good time. Look for any game Bob puts on. It's pure eye candy.
All part of a cunning plan, I hosted a Battle of Lundy's Lane game on Friday night with the help of buddy Rick Valentine. This was the historical counterpart to Chippawa. There were 4 players and 28 units of figures! A lot of fighting occurred before sunset, and while both sides were on the brink of defeat after dark, the British squeaked out a victorty, just keeping the Americans from the hill on which the Royal Artillery stood.
Here's the now legendary ATKM "Big Game" staged Saturday night at Cold Wars 2012, in this case a fictional War of 1812 battle. The terrain and table is all the work of Bob Lehman, GM extraordinaire. I showed up like a prima donna with just some figures to contribute.
A "Last of the Mohicans" game run at Cold Wars 2011 by Mike Fatovic using the ATKM rules and some figures, along with plenty of plastics from other companies.
The show-stopping ATKM Big Game at CW '11, this time around focusing on the War of 1812.
This was a combined effort between Bob and Matt Lehman, me, and Dave Hoyt. Bob did all the terrain and half the figures, while I contributed the other half of the figures.
This game was arguably bigger than any actual 1812 battle. It included 24 units per side commanded by 8 players in total. Amazingly, the Americans won in record time -- about 8 cards into the second turn!

Cold Wars 2010 AWI Game

Bob & Matt Lehman's AWI game using ATKM rules and figures. The table was 30 feet long and 6 feet wide, with 14 players. We used all of Bob and my collections combined, making for 800-900 figures on the table. We were done in 3 hours, with a British victory. It was spectacular!

Cold Wars AWI Game

The game won a best of show award, and deservedly so!

An amazing 54mm AWI game hosted by Bob and Matt Lehman at Fall In 2009.
Everything you see here was created or painted by Bob, and the game deservedly won a best-of-show award on Saturday night.
Rules and (most) figures are All the King's Men.
Bob with fellow Rebel player Robby.
