That's a great report. It's weird to think how much 40K I have actually forgotten at this stage. I had completely blocked the horror of some of that stuff (shruriken catapult sustained fire jams for example).

Although second ed doesnt hold much nostalgia for me (RT and 3rd ed are my favourite editions) your game was one of my visual highlights of the weekend. Beautiful old models and armies and you guys looked like you were having good fun. Great stuff.

I didn't come over and watch your games at all - soz! There were so many exciting things to see and people to meet – easily enough to fill the entire weekend. I regret not pestering all those bloggers I recognised.

I had lots of problems in 2E with my Kult of Speed army. First enemy shooting phase and my Sunz bikes went everywhere, and the Skorcha fired with a different-sized flame template every turn as it lost pressure. Very characterful for skirmishes, not great for massed science fiction battles.

I managed to entirely miss the Dredd game - something that I would plan an entire weekend around under normal circumstances. That adequately illustrates how many cool things were going on I think :)
