Congratulations! I just hope GW don't shut down the paper. It's too rare for gaming to get positive publicity. Even here in Nottingham, UK!
Well done sir!
Out of interest what other wargames were played?
Miniature wargames? None. we had planned to do a WW1 air game, and possibly some gladiators, but in the end we hadn't got the time or resources to organise and try them out as participation games. We felt the Minas Tirith game was good enough to hold a day on its own, and decided that showcasing the variety possible with HOTT on the second day was enough.Given the turnout I think we made the right choice. We had a lot of positive comments, and we did what we set out to do - expose a group of people not familiar with miniatures to something that wasn't 'The Games Workshop Hobby' :)If the Con runs next year we already have a local gamer who is looking at the possibility of some 28mm Napoleonics, or similar. He works at the Uni, but games up in the Southern Highlands, away from the city.
