Duke Seifried Lord of the Rings Game Historicon 2003


A good friend of mine Joel Cassell sent me these pictures taken back on July 26th 2003 at Historicon....

'I met him back in '81 at Origins which was held in the SF bay area and was small in comparison to what they do today. He was promoting Knights & Magick (my fantasy game of choice) and he gave me a pamphlet on how to paint figures. Learning a stain technique back then was invaluable to me. Met up with him again at Origins 1994 in San Jose, CA. He used to come to the HMGS shows and put on huge display games......'

I am so jealous......

Yeah, what Quendil said. That looks like a huge serving of epic awesomeness! I've read that Uncle Duke really knows how to put on a good show, and those pics just scream fun. Glad you and your friend decided to share those for the rest of us.

I remember these games.. it was many years ago now(2003 sounds about right).. the mount doom erupted at the end of the game if i recall correctly.. it was cool seeing all the old figures on the table.. he had several games up at the same time. the two i remember were the one with mount doom and the one that is only briefly mentioned in teh books(and not in the movies at all) where souron invades mirkwood etc.
