The weekend is almost upon us, and this one looks like being rather entertaining (for me, at least).
Saturday is the latest Mantic Open Day. Loads of stuff going on there, including:
- Azure Forest Tournament (DreadBall)
- Deadzone Campaign Day
- Learn to Play! Mars Attacks
- Learn to Play! Deadzone
- Learn to Play! DreadBall
- Massive KoW participation game
- Project Pandora special demo
- Warlord Games will be in attendance with Bolt Action and Judge Dredd demos
- Alessio will be running a Loka tournament.
- In the morning (between 11am and 2pm), Kai and Sarah will be running a mini event for 7-13 year olds – build some models, non-playing parents can grab a cup of tea and a seat and learn to paint, giving our gaming parents a chance to enjoy some of the morning’s fun. (Children enter free with their parents!).
I stole that from their blog. More details there.
Much of the time I’ll be in seminars with Ronnie, answering awkward questions as usual 😉
The rest of the time I’ll be wandering about the demos, talking to folk and seeing what everyone’s up to with these games in the real world.
If you have the chance, why not pop along and say hi? There are still a few tickets left.
The Triples wargames show is also on this weekend, up in Sheffield. Obviously I can’t get there on saturday, but I’ve decided to actually have a day off on sunday (Shock! Horror!) to go up and have a wander about with some friends. If I don’t bump into someone that knows me there too, I’ll be very surprised. Gaming is a very small world 🙂
a summary of dwarf kings hold news for those of us unable to attend would be very much appreciated!!!!
Last plan I heard, I’ve got 3 seminars with Ronnie tomorrow. It is inevitable that beans will be spilt. I’ll do a round-up of interesting stuff at the end of the day. Now I’ve got my new camera I might even have some nice pics. You never know…
pics would be AMAZING!!!
Yes, we are depending on our UK DKH fans to get info on DKH IV!
Ronnie said they are looking at doing a kickstarter in a month or 2 🙂
We saw sculpts of the hero figures and some of the nasty stuff they will be facing and they looked fantastic. From everything Jake and Ronnie said, it sounds like its going to be a lot of fun to play, with options for different levels of complexity depending on if you want a pick up and play game, or a more in depth RPG with charactor development through the campaign. Bring on the book of depravity i say 🙂
Quite a few pics from the event over on the various facebook groups, I WANT THE UNDEAD TROLLS NOW!!
Was good to meet you Jake!

There are some lovely models in the works for DKH.
I’m running a Flames of War game at Triples on Sunday. Not your cup of tea I hear but feel free to drop by if you’d like!
I’ll try to remember. FOW isn’t a bad game at all – I just want a bit more rivet counting simulation in my WWII games 😉
(When I’m not playing the gung-ho, cinematic Heroes of Normandie.)
