Because I'm cool and old (retro?), this is going to be one of my 40th birthday things.

E-tickets are cheaper than on the day.

Who's coming?

I went home and told Steph about this, and she "reminded" me that she's been invited on a weekend away in York that weekend for my Brother's Fiancee's hen do.

Childcare will thus be an issue.

I shall enter into negotiations tonight.

There is now, sadly, a reasonable chance that I will need to be in Las Vegas when Salute happens.

It is truly a hard life.

Updates to follow next week.

Wes, are you still up for this?

If not, don't worry. I'll speak to my friends who live in London this weekend about going.

Still awaiting updates. It's still possible that I might be able to go, but it's probably best to assume I can't.

Which I think you all were anyway.

So, you know, carry on.

I'm still up for it. I understand that it's your birthday event though, so if you'd like to arrange with your London friends to go instead that's cool. I'll leave it up to you.

No. I'd prefer to go with you. They're not really wargamers (they're not as cool as you) and they were the fall back. Also, it means Matt can still come if he's able. I just needed to know before this weekend.

Cheers.

Road trip!

No, that was only if you lot didn't want to go. Pay attention.

Well actually, that was my original idea, but somebody made a good point about cost. Although I've no idea where we'll park.

Really good. Well worth the trip. More traders and bigger stands. Big displays and sneak peaks of plenty of stuff.

We both won KR Multicase rucksacks as door prizes.

I bought a Batmobile!

Definitely on the calendar for next year.

Nope. I got some cards for 7TV2 (which I've managed to get cheap off eBay), a model for the Punisher, some bases and a Drill and some Ravens for DZC. Didn't go nuts.

Saw the DFC models though - pictures will be on my blog tomorrow. They are very, very pretty. Although Wes and I decided that Matt can't use his Shaltari unless they're painted like the ones we saw...

I asked about the new book. The guy said June.

On the subject of new books, the ACW one was full price.

Wes almost bought into the Marvel game. We had a very short demo, but...he likes it! We're going to give a full game a go with my Avengers and fake X-Men, before he commits (my idea, aren't I nice?).

I'm going to stop mithering you all about Batman, and start mithering you about 7TV. Pretty much no prep needed now. Bring models, pick cast from cards, play.

Ghostbusters vs HYDRA vs SG-1 vs Daleks vs NYPD is a game we can now play!!!
