Yep, just surfacing now too. Very busy (and long) day. Hardly got off the stand all day and saw bugger all of anything. Apologies to everyone I ignored or was just too busy to talk to :(

that shocked me too when you told me they'd said that, once you explained why it was a pleasant surprise :)

Meeting the Wargames Factory guys was absolutely the highlight of the show. And they came over to the Frotherheim table specifically to say "hi" to the Frothers. Seemed like good blokes, not scum like Tony Reidy.

One of the many interesting things that the "yellow menace"* said was that he wasn't actually making money out of Wargames Factory, it's "more of a hobby". Pretty bloody big investment in a hobby compared to all those little garage hobby companies.


*turns out he is Canadian, fuckwit PMTers!
It's happening again...

Great to meet a load of Frothers! Was a whirlwind, not sure as to what actually happened, what was hunger delirium, and who I met, but hey!

I chatted to loads of people but I still have no idea who they were (probably for the best) :D

Your stand seemed busy all day Annie, hope that translated into sales.
The first ever lesson I learnt working at Salute was "Bring Lunch!" I got through so much cake and chocolate this year 8)

Well I got to the Fox after the show only to be called Germy several times by Pete before he then disappeared off!!!

I didn't have the heart to tell him that I was one half of "mcfly" . . . . the other standing next to me!

I was flattered to have been mistaken for that talented genius though!

Thing is, although I am sure I have met you Germy, I can't for the life of me remember what you look like. So for all I know, you look like the really handsome chap that I am.

It's that or Pete could have been a bit merry.

Fuck knows. I just smiled and nodded. It's an important skill that, smiling and nodding!
