Salute Part 1

It's Salute time again well on saturday anyway. Over 7000 gamers descended to the Excel centre in London to pay homage to all things gaming and buy new toys!

The Sea of Gamers and this was at 9:30 am

After picking up my goodie bag with my Salute exclusive mini, free dice and this year a couple of models from Maelstrom's Edge I bumped into to a few of the guys from The Essex Legion as we were all let into the the huge hanger.

This year I went to Salute with a a plan...I wanted to get a few bits but also to get a few demos in as well.

(disclaimer there will be lots of awesome and amazing in this so be warned)

First I had a look at Siege Studios and I tell you there work is stunning the paint jobs these photos don't do any justice at all.

This fella is ready for action

I heard that River Horse was showing some of the models and test castings for the up coming labyrinth game and they did not disappoint.. This is one game I will get in the summer (dance magic dance)


After seeing these I popped over to the Mantic stand to have a look at the new Deadzone game and redeem some of my mantic points ( getting more hammer action for my Dwarfs) and had a go at Kings of War finally.

Of course I was the Dwarfs for this and it was only a basic set up but it was really easy to pick up I even remembered stats that the Standee forgot. It must bean an easy game to pick up for me to remember rules. Anyway it was fast and I liked the wounds stacked up on the unit and the fact its deadly if you are attacked from the sides or behind. Also the fact Dwarfs have access to angry badgers with Slayers on their backs.. How can you not love that.

I am going to see if I can sway Mr2key to have a go with the free rules online.

ttcombat and there huge new building for sale.

As you can see by the faces it was pleasing to see

perfect for frostgrave

Next stop Studio McVey and my word they had The Others 7 sins models on dis-play.  I backed this game on kickstarter due to the pictures of the models and so glad I did my jaw drooped..... So much Awesome I can't wait till I get these in my hands!

After all this excitement and trying to take in all that was going at the show I needed to take 5...
