Games Day Review
We both knew exactly where we were going the minute those doors opened... the Forgeworld line. Even though we booked it there, we still got stuck in line for about an hour. While Corvus was there only to keep me company... I managed to get just about every last thing I wanted from the event... minus the bitz for my penal legion... though I did get an unexpected treat for that unit. I'll do a follow up article on what I got... as my hobby table is now overflowing with goodies to build and paint.
I won't lie, Corvus and I were a little let down by some things this year. There was no big release... no news... nothing. Basically we got the standard event with some new models to look at. While the Golden Deamon, Armies on Parade, and Heavy Metal models were a blast to look at... not much else came of the event. Though we did manage to snag a few pics of the new daemon models.
They are very well done. Corvus is anxious to pick up the blue scribes, and I cant say I blame him... they look fantastic. There we several events going on throughout the day. Sadly we missed the build your own terrain, but it was a pretty solid day overall. We got to see 40k goods, some awesome models, bug games, and I got a huge amount of forgeworld I've been wanting for years. With just a little push after this, my Death Korps will have just about every model of their I wanted. Can't wait to show off some of the models in the followup article.
So that's it for me. I have a few article ideas for the future, and will look forward to posting them soon. I'd be happy to hear from anyone else who was at Games Day to see how their time was. Hopefully they had a blast, and I hope Games Day will be more than a stop by Forgeworld and a chat with arguably the better writers of G.W.
