Oh by the way Fen, what convention were you working at? Do you work in the gaming industry or was this just a temporary thing?
UK Games Expo in Birmingham - Sort of a low key demonstration of new products more aimed at the non-gamer - but there were a few tournaments of things going on, I had a chance to look at some Warmachine/Hordes, Urban War & 40K. Mostly I was looking at the sculpts and paint jobs because I'm not interested in trying to drum up players for an independant game where I live. It's too much effort and it's hard to overcome the GW bias.
I used to work in the games industry before switching to something that pays better
. But one of my friends owns a store which is part of a family owned chain over here. So I agreed to help out in exchange for some freebie stuff & transport. I used my free time to catch up with a mate, it was like a short working holiday.
These days all I really do that involves the gaming industry is commission painting for small companies.
