Excellent 2-day show at the Rivermead Sports Complex in Reading.  With the loss of Colours this year, there's even more reason to come along! 

More info can be found here: http://www.wargamesassociationreading.co.uk/ and we'll need any pre-orders before 8th November please!

This was an excellent show, the highest number of visitors they've ever had, with about 1800 through the door over the whole weekend I think.  It was our best year down there as well, which must be due in some part to the loss of Colours this year.

And on that note, we found out that Colours will now be returning for 2015, in the same venue and on the same weekend, but as a one-day show instead.  Personally, I think this is a very good move as it brings the stand costs down substantially, and I don't think they'll lose too many visitors by getting rid of the Sunday.

Glad to hear you had a good weekend. Lovely to hear that Colours will be returning, even as a one day show. Better start planning now for a demo table... Undecided.

I had a fun morning on the Saturday. Managed to grab a 10mm bargain at the bring and buy including another mob of Pendraken goblins and wolves  Cheesy

Then had great fun being a pirate captain on a dinosaur infested treasure island courtesy of Wessex Wargamers Winchester - which I believe won best participation game  Cool

After that it was time for a spot of retail therapy! Managed to catch the Pendraken stand during a brief quiet moment and say hi. Then it was time to hunt some d30s and giant (pink, sparkly) d6es for my daughters; pop buy Timecast to see if Will/Lemmey had been allowed time off of good behaviour - apparently not, still owe you that raptor Coke mate, see you next year Wink - before heading home for the annual Wales versus the South Sea Islanders torture-fest we loyal fans have come to - hmm - *love*!!  Cry

See you next year guys  Thumbs up

Cheers,

They mentioned the brownie point deficit when I asked at the Timecast stand  Wink

Although I have to say that there was a pretty big clue that you weren't going to be there when I saw you post in the painting thread timed at ~2:30am on the Saturday morning…  Shocked Hurry up! Grin

Ah well, there's always next year Wink
