I think we should do an event at Warhammer World sometime. It would be great to use that space. However, I don't think it should be this event, our annual 'big gettogether' - my understanding is that Warhammer World would only be comfortable with us using GW figures, and really for the oldhammer weekend we want to be able to use whatever figures are in our collections.

...yes, wouldn't it be great to pile into Warhammer World with armies of 3rd edition Citadel at some point? What a site that would make! :D

Re: Oldhammer date veto.

I don't see venues in Scotland, Crete or Reading as credible alternatives to one in the midlands. If someone wants to put forward a good alternative venue in Nottingham, Derby, Birmingham etc. I would be willing to give that idea the time of day. As for suggesting GW HQ over Wargames Foundry, that's just time-wasting. Might I suggest those who are passionate about fixing things that aren't broken start their own thread on their favoured topics of discussion rather than gate-crashing the efforts of others? Nowhere in the title does it say anything about choosing a venue.

Rationale?

And erm, time and space locations are kind of the same thing. No point in setting your heart on Foundry if they're not available at the date everyone can make, if they are that's great.

Re: Oldhammer date veto.

Paul's right - a few of us, me included, have taken this one OT a little. We can pontificate about venues elsewhere.

Re: Oldhammer date veto.

Hello community, thanks to everyone who took part in this. I have been informed that a date has been booked for Bring Out Your Lead II at the Foundry, I hope the organisers found my little polling exercise informative! I will leave the poll active for Zhu's sake, apparently he is organising a bash at Warhammer World which sounds exciting, he may find a use for the data. :D
