Default Anyone go to games day? it was awesome!

Amidst cold misty roads and almost bare buildings lay outside no less than 4,000+ hobbyists eager to descend upon the Birmingham NEC and boy they have a good reason because it was GAMES DAY! Several hobby stores attended, flying there banners of glory, golden demon was ever popular with over 1800 entrants! The new High elves and Orks were on preview, (no plastic dragon unfortunately >) many games workshop hq attended (i spoke to my hero Jervis johnson himself and he likes my ideas for standard bearer . Even got to chat to Matt hudson, Mark latham,Dominic murray,Kirstin williams and Anya wetergren yipee!) oh no umm mods i need to leave now because of time constraints so can i make a part 2 later? Anyaways just discuss games day.

Yes I went. Yes it was awesome. As for banners, our shop forgot to bring one After a brilliant day of entering a model into the youngbloods (didn't win anything), reading White Dwarf through several times, meeting stupidsimon who showed me his awesomely painted tau, gasping at the new models and returning home with a Malcador under my arms, I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

I did, and.. boy was it so cool! The Apoc battle looked amazing, loads of models, a couple of Titans (Eldar, Ork & Imperial Guard) some aircraft consisting of two Thunderbolts and a Lightning and some Ork Bomber thingy.

Can't wait for next year!

yeh, I went it was awesome! I managed to buy a WD 333 and I got it signed by loads of people including gav thorpe, jervis!, John Blanche etc.....

My store's bus got a flat tyre on the way :P we drove for 40 miles in 40MPH! But we were still about 2 hours early. I think we were the 4th bus to arrive. Also someone from my store in glasgow (MATT) won a golden demon! It was the warhammer 40K squad category.

The highlight for me was falling asleep on the stands!! I felt alive after that!

Alas I didn't win anything in the GD (YB). For next year I am going to enter 5 categories. I have also been invited into a 'Team Glasgow' were we will meet up at GW and paint, share techniques, etc. Matt (as mentioned above) will be the like boss figure.

By the way would anyone be interested in me writing a report about the new WD?

Nice talking to you all!

-Si-

I went, entered the young bloods (didn't get in the finalists cabinet but the model was nearer this year, only one more try at it) did the tunnels of death space hulk game as lemartes and wooped some 'nid d'yi, did the rock piles terrain and scrap demon, had early lunch did cities of death terrain, picked up my rock pile and looked at the design process exhibition thing which was very interesting.

It was great and I got my dad's money's worth by building scenery and a conversion.

I would love to go to a Games Day, or any GW convention, if they held any out in Texas... :

i think the most incredible thing was the vast quantities of money being handed over. I saw someone with the marine company (£275), the big leman russ box (£150), the gamers pack (not sure, about £50?), and two twin monolith boxes (50 each, £100). And he was carrying it around all day!

I just got loads of books, including the exclusive short stories, and an amusing t-shirt (for people who were there, the one with the failed armour save)

Oh, I have an Idea of what happened there. Texas has been dry(event-wise)for a while.

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?

Tell me about it. They don't even have a GW store in Austin so not likely to have events here but Dallas or Houston not having events seems crazy to me. I'm thinking I'm just going to have to fly to Atlanta for the next one there. Probably the only way I'll ever make it to one.
