Mantic Open day & Deadzone

What a mad 6 weeks it has been. Having abandoned the blog in the run up to the wedding I am now back. Shackled forever to the misses and already regretting having come back to the country after an amazing honeymoon in the Caribbean.

But thankfully I came back and managed to be back in time to go to Mantic’s awesome open day up in Nottingham. A wonderful 0500 start awaited me as I made the 2 1/2 hour journey for a day of Pathfinding.

With a day of dreadball and Kings of War tournaments, dreadball, deadzone, KOW, Loka demos we also had the chaps from Hawk Wargames, warlord and mongoose down demoing a number of other systems.

The day itself was great fun and the place was rammed for the entire day 🙂

We got new T-shirts :)

With plenty of people coming to pick up their deadzone kickstarter orders there were a lot of happy faces as people picked up big boxes and in a lot of cases several boxes of toys. The turn around is quite spectacular when you remember that there are only actually 20 staff on the books at Mantic.

The huge haul

Still It was a fantastic day and now that I have had a chance to recover and work out just what exactly I did order it is time to get on and assemble and start painting. However spraying should be fun as it is hovering above 0 Degrees at the moment 🙂

Until next time!
