Tomorrow is Blog-Con and I'll be travelling up to Nottingham to meet up with James, Ian, Dave, Paul and Andrew for the World's first wargames bloggers convention. Thanks to the generous hosting by Wargames Foundry at their premises, I'm looking forward to a really great day of meeting bloggers, chatting about the hobby, playing a few games and seeing friends.
After a few frantic weeks, it'll be a great time to chill out at a venue and just play some games. Above all, I think it's a great idea that people sharing the blogging hobby (writing, reading, commenting or posting), who are also wargamers, have got together to do something very different and unique.
I had grand plans earlier this week of listing wargaming items which I am hoping to give away - yes, you heard that right - give away at Blog-Con to a good wargaming home. As chance would have it, this week I've been stuck at work all hours and I've not had chance to work out a list. I've literally loads of stuff which I have decided I'm never going to paint, or books I've read, or rules I've played and not really liked. I'll bring some of that wargaming treasure on the train tomorrow (the best stuff!), and if you're interested, ladies and gentlemen, its all yours with my very best wishes.
Talking of trains - I'm on the 7.51am from Luton Airport Parkway to Nottingham tomorrow morning. Coach G. Seat 10A. Facing forward. Aisle seat. Probably half-asleep. But please do say hello.
And if you're not on the train, I'll see you at Blog-Con!
