|Hrond! This is before the Matt arrived, so I have my two warbands on display along with a few other things.|
All the players seemed to enjoy the game, and we got positive comments about the ease of play and fun factor.
|Matt doesn't like tipping casualties over, so we used milk bottles and jelly beans for corpses. The idea was to eat them when a unit with the Vice of Hunger ate the bodies, but we didn't end up using any units with that vice.|
We also got positive comments about the terrain, and I even met the designer of the Martian Cephalopod figure I use as the Lord of Rapacity who leads my other warband, the Insatiable.
|The Hot Hag and Scarecrow Reapers pour down the bridge of Hrond. That Jellybean was a puppet skirmisher. Now it's a toad thanks to the Hag's spells.|
I didn't get to join in any of the other games. There was one I was very interested in, but they folded it for lack of players while we were running our first Fanticide game... Fortunately it was being run by part-time HGC member Aaron and once-in-every-five-years HGC member Jan, so they've decided to bring it down to HGC and run it there.
What I did manage to get into was a short Pathfinder RPG demo. Unfortunately, Matt had to leave soon to tend to his sick son, so we adopted a very gung-ho, kick in the door style of play which was at odds with the scenario, and our limited abilities as starter players. I was quickly stabbed into unconsciousness while trying to demonstrate the error of his ways to a drunken sailor (I was playing a female cleric as an evangelist extreme fundamentalist missionary...)
There were rather a lot of games going on, but I didn't take any photos. Likewise there was many a trader, but I had only limited finances, so I didn't go nuts. That and there was nothing much of the bring and buy table that really got my attention. I did buy some empire state troops (to turn into Skaven Slaves!) a Malifaux Crew, the X-Wing Miniatures Game starter box because it looked insanely cool, and the In Her Magesty's Name steampunk skirmish rulebook.
Oh - and don't got forgetting to vote in the next people's choice poll. Democracy only works when you participate.
