Quote from: Dour Puritan on 08 December 2014, 04:17:24 PMTo be honest I'm not great talking to members of the public at demo gamers, mainly because I'm not great at breaking the ice. However if someone asks me a question it's like someone knocked a hole in the dam. Fortunately my usual demo opponent is very good at engaging that member of the public who's stood there gawping but doesn't say anything. What puts me off doing the same is when said punter responds, 'Hmmmm' then wanders off.
QuoteHello Big Andy, Sorry, I've only just had the chance to read this blog post of yours and the comments posted on it. In regard your mentioning of a Pendraken Forum poster saying something about OGUK, that person was myself. Reading the statement I made on the Pendraken Forum, I can only respond to what I wrote by saying, contrary to what it states, that I would, in all honesty, be happy to purchase from OGUK, should I have need to. That, I still don't necessarily agree with your views on how gamers should be collecting and gaming the hobby, but at the same time I'll admit to being envious of people like yourself who can, and do, play games on large tables with vast amounts of 25-28mm scale units.Obviously, a year has passed since I wrote the comment in question and I cannot remember the full circumstances at the time it was written. However, I believe what I wrote was, in fact, influenced by hearing yourself being loud of voice, and swearing, while taking part in your game at the Durham Wargames Group open day back in 2014. It was the swearing, in the presence of children and women, that annoyed me at the time and no doubt influenced my written words on the forum post in question. Fair enough, I should have said something on the day to you, but I didn't - also, you were in conversation with two other gents and I didn't with to interrupt. Now, if you would like for me to come and introduce myself, to the OGUK stand at the next show we will be both in attendance at, I would be happy to do so? I'm not looking for any sort of argument, nor do I have an issue with you personally, especially since I don't know you, nor you me. In truth, up until reading the above blog post, I'd completely forgotten all about the DWG open day and what I wrote on the Pendraken Forum back in 2014. If you would like an apology from me, then I'd be happy to do so. Equally, I would be happy to simply brush this aside and for both of us to carry on with our lives. All the best for 2016.Roy Evans (Williamson being a pseudonym)
