Wargaming Girl, here, here, here and here.
The Angry Lurker, here and here.
Anything I might have added to the above would, I think, appear redundant.
Did I enjoy the show? In hindsight yes, but at the time not so much. I had been having a rough week and as one of my friends said to me on the day, "You sound like you are ready to throw yourself under the wargaming table". I only bought one thing, and that was the new issue of Miniature Wargames.
However, I met up with Henry, which was good. Bumped into friends, which is always good. Had Tamsin sweep me up in passing and give me a hug, so still all good.
Also got to see and ask questions about Dropzone Commander from Hawk Games, which will help me finish my review for Miniature wargames. I then went to talk to Richard and the other guys from TooFatLardies, and saw Chain of Command demonstrated in the flesh, which was awesome. Nick has done a podcast you can listen to here.
Left around 15.00 and came home as my feet hurt and I was feeling pretty exhausted by it all. I really had trouble coping with the level of illumination in the hall, which I found quite upsetting as I couldn't focus on anything properly. I was told that this was a sign of getting old, and needing more light to be able to see things clearly.
Got home, put my feet up and read the new white cover issue of Miniature Wargames. Bliss. It felt like the first time I read the first issue, back in 1984 when I was ever so young. I may no longer be young, but the joy I got from reading the issue recharged my enthusiasm for my hobby.
