For Photos of the show you will have to try a few other blogs. I make no appologies for no pics today I just did not get ANY time to see the show let alone take some pics. Here are a few links.
I am the guy in the camo trousers running the 7TV game, in case you don't know me. Not the most flattering but I guess the camera did not lie.
I spent all day running the 7TV game. Managed to get 4 gmes finished and only got to the trader hall a few brief times so nothing was purchased except 1 rule book. (I have not even flicked through it yet, but I do like the look feel and quality. I will no doubt review it in a few months).
Still back to the show, firstly let me say I did get a few things wrong with the rules, but not disasterously wrong and all the players seemed t enjoy the games. The boards looked pretty good, we all had club shirts and a7TV banner at our back so if nothing else we might have given the impression of knowing what we were doing!
I do know Karl at Crooked Dice was happy and that to me was important. I also know that because of the game we did encourage some sales. One guy in particular, on a visit to this country from the States, not for the show in particular but as a wargamer he did manage to sniff it out. He alone spent £70:00 at Crooked Dice stand having watchd the participation game. A genuinely nice chap I have his details and his club details in Huston, not sure what will result if anything but who knows.
Will we do a 7TV game at a show again? Well that depends. The guys that came from the club are not really 7TV players so perhaps the next show we should put on something more suited to their tastes. Or another option would be to do a WW1 game in 20mm to support the miniatures range of Tim (http://www.itminiatures.co.uk/) from IT miniatures, Tim also being a club member. Time will tell what we actually do.
On the car journey we talked about up coming projects.Graham wants to do a 10mm WW1 game as he has just bought the Peter Pig "Square Bashing" rules. |I have several projects I want to progress but today I just wat to relax.
I must say a big THANKS to the other guys from Rainham, (Namely Graham, Peter and Bob.) without whom I could not have managed at all.
