Have a great show and look forward to seeing pics of the BKCIV game. If I had planned on going I wouldn't be able to make it as I've been struck down with a nasty cold :(.

Searching on line I've yet to find any reports on the show. I did see an initial walk through on Facebook from Wargames Illustrated and the show looked really quiet, given it was taken at around 10.30am. Hope all who went had a good day out, but to be honest, I didn't miss the show one jot. Roll on Colours!

I found this on line, not the best of videos, but I did jump my way through it

'The Mammoth Hunt' game at 46:59 caught my eye
As did the following game, which looks like it might be the Age of Sail version of Cruel Sea

This one looks a bit better

My mug would have broken the beasts of war lens :D had a bit of an ex tempore visit this year on my way back to Finland from a work trip to Savannah, Georgia. The 28 mm Irish 17th century game and the Swedes vs Russians in 1807 were my fav tables this year.
Cheers,
Aksu

Yeah...

They came by and my helpful colleagues said 'Yes, we can do an interview' and promptly sent them to me.  I not a fan of even being in photo's so you can probably tell how uncomfortable I am here!

Hopefully!  I think I waffled a bit as I wasn't quite sure what they'd be asking so they caught me on the back foot a little.

I think you should have your own TV  show :d

I don't think that's a very good idea...!  We're actually in the process of starting to produce our own video content and my video guru told me that I should be appearing in all of them.  He got a rather short reply to that...
