Just a quick note – I’ll post a bunch more pics tomorrow.
It’s been a fun day, not least because I had a game of Tribes of Legend with Nigel Stillman (and then a bunch of us played Condottiere). For those of you that are not familiar with Nigel, he worked for GW for years, but his gaming credentials go back further by far, to authoring classic WRG publications that every Ancients gamer should know. He is, by inclination and trade, an archaeologist that specialises in the early Bronze Age in the Middle East. He’s also a very entertaining chap. He does, for example, turn up to open days with some of his latest experimental archaology in the form of a horn helmet. Not a horned helmet, mind you, one made from (buffalo) horn, much like the boar tusk helmets you see. Anyway, here’s a photo of him wearing it. A very sturdy piece of kit it is too.
